But don’t take our word for it—read the gushing testimonials of your fellow beauties! Our 5-star picks of the week, below.

1. Pili Lipstick, P605
“Got this in Latte. It’s a brown-based pink on me, a good nude. It can be somewhat sheer on the first swipe but is easily buildable. To avoid cracked lips, normally I would need to put on lipbalm first before swiping on any lipstick, no matter how hydrating the lipstick claims to be. This is not the case for this lipstick :) I treat this as a kind of super pigmented lipbalm that’s great to use on lazy days when you just want a little bit of color on your face without risking any cracked lips. I like it; I’m thinking of trying another color next” – Abigail

2. Be Organic Bath & Body Shea Butter Soap, P100 “I started using this just last week and i already felt its moisturizing properties from day one. It helps a lot now that i am pregnant and want a soap that lessens the itchiness on my tummy and thighs. I think it also goes well with the body lotion and butter that i apply after shower in the hopes of preventing those ugly stretchmarks. Organic makes it even more ideal for me and my baby.” – Katherine

3. Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour, P1,150 “I rarely find a cosmetics that will suits to [sic] my oily and acne prone skin (from drug store to high-end products). It frustrates me sometimes to some products that are “OKAY” in the first try then suddenly it wont work with you anymore. I have a high hopes when i purchased for this laura mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour since this is a little bit pricey. And whoa it did!! I dont know but this works totaly awesome! [sic] It gives me a rosy-orangey blush. Though It has tiny shimmer, it never gives me the greasy look. I like the way how the shimmer emphasizes the color on a natural way and i must say it stays long than i expected [sic]. I will repurchased this and BeautyMnl should restock more” – Janinan

I usually don’t get enough sleep or stay up till whenever and when I got this in hand I decided to give my face extra care than usual since the last was a couple months ago.Did a whitehead extraction and cleanse it with a gentle toner then this. It soothed my irritated skin. Giving it glow and brightness. Zits calmed and looks almost gone.pores are smaller. [sic] What more could I ask for in a sheet mask! Definitely getting more and will continue to pamper my face after every two weeks with this. A must get if you have tired,sensitive acne dull skin. [sic]” – Fatima

5. V&M Naturals Tsubaki Oil, now on sale at P383 “I had been using this for more than 2 years now. I apply this on my hair similar to a hair serum. It addressed my dry ends, prevented spilt ends and controlled frizz. It also didn’t weigh my hair down or makes my hair oily and didn’t cause itchy scalp (hair products makes my scalp itchy even if I had been careful to avoid my scalp). For someone who can’t grow hair past shoulder length due to dry ends and split ends, this was my first salvation. After discovering the vnm [sic] shampoo and conditioner, I can now grow my hair up to waist length! The 30ml bottle managed to last me 6months of everyday usage. For the price, it’s definitely worth it!” – Shin

6. L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza “Super love this product! It doesn’t dry like the more expensive gel liners out there. One caution though, you can easily put more of the product at the onset so make sure you apply less. It’s easy to add anyways depending on your preferred intensity. The profound black color is total black which dries to a matte black. Really love this gel liner!” – Celine

7. Aloe Derma Pure Aloe Vera Gel, P280 “Aloe vera has been proven effective to relieve and soothe the skin. This gel has the same effect on me. It is in a gel formula similar to the actual plant. It is great that this product is organic thus very gentle on my skin. I use it for insect bites, small wounds, cuts, and rashes. It is also great for sunburns.” – Monique

8. Seche Restore Thinner, P375 “I can’t stress enough how much I love this product! I’ve thrown out a lot of nail polish bottles before because they were all too thick already and I found them really hard to use. When I learned about Seche Restore, I knew I just had to get a bottle to try it out. A few drops of this product and voila–thick, old nail polish comes to life again! It’s nice that it comes with a dropper, too :)” – Imma

9. Palgantong Cosmetics Pop Cheek Blush, P630 “No matter how much you apply on your face it doesn’t look like it’s too much as it blends well on your skin tone and looks naturally. This is so far the best blush on I’ve ever had.. Lasts all-day long. Perfectly used with Palgantong BB Cream and Theatrical Powder. Pay the price for ideal results.” – Geraldine

10. Koji Curving Eyelash Curler, P675 “I never liked curling my eyelashes because I usually end up pinching the area around my eyes. But given my short and straight lashes this is one beauty practice that I’d like to get used to. After doing some research I learned that not all eyelash curlers are made equal. Asian eye sockets tend to be wider and less curved so most commercial eyelash curlers are not fit for our eyes. The Koji eyelash curler allows me to curl most of my eyelashes without including bits of my skin. Other eyelash curlers require me to curl my lashes in portions because their shape don’t fit my eyes. Best eyelash curler I’ve used so far. I also love that it has its own case.” – Frances
