1. Cocoro Sugar Cocoro Dark Caramel (250g), P120
Best coconut sugar we’ve tried! My husband and I cook and bake a lot, and have tried many kinds of coconut sugar. The Cocoro Dark Caramel is so far the best one we have tried as it blends easily with any type of food, giving a rich, nutty flavor to our food. We are also fond of using it with black, brewed coffee, and fruit & vegetable smoothies. We are repurchasing for sure, and we hope that a bigger pack can be sold here in Beauty Manila.” – Tanya

2. Human Nature Citrus Burst Spray Sanitizer, P190
“I love this a lot, I just got my second bottle as a back up. I have young kids so having a sanitizer is always something I must bring. This one smells fantastic, so I had to ditch my alcohol spray and spare myself from the scent. My kids love this, my hubby too. I’m already thinking of buying lots of this to give away this Christmas to all my mommy friends.” – Louise

3. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss, P400
“One thing I cannot stand with matte liquid lippies is how drying they are. I really hate the tight feeling and how they emphasize the lines on my lips. Now this gloss is my new favorite! I love how it looks matte but it is not drying at all. I now kinda get why it’s called a matte gloss because when worn, it appears to be matte but it feels like you’re wearing a lip gloss. Definitely moisturizing. I got Statement Nude and Bare Attraction and I use them alternately. Perfect for everyday.” – Laarni

4. MAC Liptensity Lipstick, P1,300
“”I have the shade in Smoked Almond and it’s the perfect everyday MLBB lip from day to night. It’s a medium dark pink brown with warm undertones and it’s so versatile it can match with so many make up looks even just with a bronzer, a heavy smoky eye or just with a pink blush. I love the formula of the Mac Liptensity lippies as compared to their regular lipsticks cause this one really glides smoothly and it’s very moisturizing on the lips. Even if it’s more on the smooth side, it’s still pigmented and the staying power is still excellent, similar to the regular mac lippies. This stays on the lips although I may have to retouch after a few hours to keep the color vibrant. The packaging looks luxurious too and it kinda helps me locate it quicker cause the tube color is the exact same color inside the tube as compared to the classic Mac black bullet packaging.” – Nicole

5. Dewytree Aqua Collagen Peptide Cream, P999
“The first thing I remember loving about this product is its texture. It feels light on the skin and isn’t greasy at all. A small amount of product goes a long way, and once I finish smoothing it on I can see an almost instant effect: my skin looks plumper and fresher, which is certainly what peptide products promise. I use it twice a day: morning, mixed with my BB or CC cream and night, under my sleeping pack. It’s a great all-around product and I will definitely restock once I go through my first tub. Highly recommended!” – Pepita

6. Oh So Healthy Yam Coconut Fruit Crisps, P95
“I often tell myself that today is the day I start my diet (it never happens. sigh) so I’m always on the look out for healthy snacking alternatives to my preferred salted egg chips and cookies. That being said, these fruit crisps are a godsend! So yummy and not bad at 148 calories a bag. It’s perfect for those who just need a little bit of sweetness after a meal. Packaging is nicely designed and it’s resealable, too! I like the Purple Yam Banana Coconut variant better than the Mango one. Need to order more of this stat.” – Marla

7. Ultra Green Coffee, P500
“It smells like green tea! Taste is not too sweet and not too strong. So if you like your Barako coffee, you might need to adjust. I love the taste coz it’s like coffee and milk tea. The green tea scent calms me and wakes me up at the same time. Mostly, I like that it does not trigger my hyperacidity, unlike normal coffee. I did not experience any weight loss or suppressed appetite, but I don’t mind since it’s not my intention anyway. And I’ve only consumed 10 packs so I might need to drink more or follow the instructions, since I drink this at the office when I’ve already had breakfast. I would still buy this coz I need a healthier sub to my usual coffee and this is cheaper compared to buying at coffee shops.” – Jacky

8. Beauty Bakery Lightweight Hair Conditioner, P399
“I do hope it will restock soon! This is my first non-commercial conditioner na I was hesitant to buy at first since it’s a bit pricey. I admit that I only got swayed with all the positive reviews, and true enough, sobrang satisfying! Even my niece loved it when she used it when we went out of town. It’s not sticky, yung parang wala kang nilalagay so if it’s your first time using this product, maninibago ka at first and you would think it’s not that effective, but wait until you’re done cause that’s when the magic begins! When I brush my hair while it’s still wet, it’s tangle-free! And once it’s totally dry, it becomes super smooth, shiny, and super lightweight! Bango pa! Worth it!!!” – Deis

9. Imagic Highlight & Contour Stick, now on sale at P299 (limited time only)
“Must admit, I don’t do contouring as much but for days when I do, I find that this one does the trick! It’s easy to use and to apply, which is important for me since I’m not that much of a contour expert yet. Texture is very creamy and blend-able. Finish looks good, no harsh lines even when I only use my finger to blend. Very convenient and space saving as both the contour and highlighter are in one stick. I would recommend this one, even to contour newbies! Thumbs up!” – Joan

10. Summer Farms Mango Jam, P265
“My whole family loves this! It’s real jam with a lot of fruit. Most of the commercially available jams now are all sugar. But this has a good amount of fruit in it. We love having this with our morning pandesal and pancakes. Must include this in the Christmas hamper!”
