The scorching heat is usually bad news for Filipina skin—but not according to this week’s Top Reviews! In our opinion, there is no better season to test-drive a new product than summer. If it can survive this weather, it can survive anything. Peruse these top 10 customers picks—from long-lasting matte powders to decadent skin-soothers, these babies will save you from a meltdown any day of the year.

1. Physiogel Cream, P604 “This face cream works wonders that the only thing I don’t like about it (but can let pass) is the complete lack of scent. It’s very creamy but easy to spread and apply. It didn’t break me out or make my skin react badly in any way. It made my skin really soft and moisturized and kinda glowing after a few weeks of use. It’s pretty affordable for a face cream, too, considering the amount of product in one tube. Highly recommended.” – Dana

2. Maybelline Pure Mineral Concealer, P399 “This is actually my first concealer. I was so hesitant to buy it at first but it proved me wrong. This concealer prove it’s non-cake formula than leaves my under eye area just bright and set! It doesn’t however conceal all the blemishes (especially the red ones) but it sets perfectly under your eyes. I use them during my performances in dance and even after 3-5 hours of constant change in temperature (due to body heat, cold theatre, or at normal air state), I don’t have to reapply the concealer.”

3. Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Pore Cover Powder, P455 “I use this as a setting powder and the result is superb! Never have to retouch all the time. I sometimes felt like I look oily on my way to the office during a very sunny day but when I look in the mirror I never see oil on my face at all. I look fresh all the time regardless of the weather and the sweat going out of my face. This powder is perfect and I’m planning to stick to it FOREVER.” – Calee

4. NYX Dark Circle Concealer, P390 “I’ve searched high and low for something that can correct and conceal my dark circles. I’ve found some that came close enough, but either crease or slide off my face. I love that this concealer has correcting undertones, which lets me get away with one less layer of makeup on my face. It doesn’t crease; just make sure to set it with powder. An awesome bonus: it also has hydrating properties thanks to the coconut oil in it.” – Claire

5. Beauty Bakery Decadent Body Butter, P350 “I just got this in two variants, the melted marshmallows and musky vanilla + caramel (beauty hoarding!). I immediately used it after I got the package, and I’m melting and falling for it! The package and its scent makes it look and smell like it’s meant to be eaten. A small amount leaves your skin really silky and sweet-smelling, especially when you spend hours inside air-conditioned office rooms. Definitely restocking after I finish my jar.” – Krisanta

6. Dear Klairs Illuminating Blemish Cream, P995 does exactly what it says on the tube, it really looks like it’s your skin but better. it’s good for days when you just want a very light feeling on the face. additional concealer is needed if you have prominent marks. it covers redness and adds a glow to the skin while smoothing over pores. best to moisturize and exfoliate before applying for the best results” – Monique

7. Maybelline Lip Gradation Pencil, P399 “ I love this product! At first I was hesitant to buy this because of the price. But because i really love the mauve shade, i gave it a try, I bought it! When I tested it, I just can’t stop liking it. It’s very easy to use, just apply on the inner lip then smudge it with the sponge applicator which is in the other end of the pen. I use it now for my everyday look. Also it lasts for hours! You can do alot with this product, like darker inner lips or vice versa or full. I am amazed by this product! I am eyeing now for the shade fuchsia. Definitely a very good lippie for ladies who are on the go. It’s worth the price ladies!” – Rochelle

8. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Pressed Powder, P600 “I tried this since it was on sale (LOL) but was pleasantly surprised by how long it actually holds up. I sweat a lot, and I mean A LOT, and this manages to stay on longer than the other powder foundations I’ve also tried. The container’s also very nice (it feels pretty solid from top to bottom) and it has a nice-sized mirror in the sponge compartment. Interestingly enough, it looks a bit ashy right after I brush it on, but sets to a natural-looking matte finish. I don’t even need to touch it up. It isn’t scented which is great. Will I purchase it again? Unless I find something waaay better, yes, I’d definitely repurchase.” – Nina

9. Palty Bubble Hair Color, P500 “This foam-type product is very easy to use. It comes with a small container and spatula that makes product mixing very easy. I have already tried Milk Tea Brown which is more of an ashy shade and Cinnamon Churros, a true natural dark brown shade. It is important to note, however, that the lighter shades would only appear as such when you have bleached hair. If you have darker hair, choose the lighter shade … Overall, I use this product all the time and I highly recommend it” – Anna

10. VMV Hypoallergenics Id Monolaurin Gel, P830 “As much as I want to spend all day talking about this, there isn’t much to say but BEST PRODUCT EVER! I use at least 3 VMV products daily and 7 overall, but amongst them all, this one is irreplaceable. It’s not necessarily a spot corrector but me and partner use it for pimples that are just about to break through the surface, and it works like a charm, every time! It can also be used as a matttifying agent before applying makeup. But best of all, it serves as an amazing EXFOLIATOR, 4-5 days after my brazillian wax, I apply this to the waxed area everyday until the growing hairs finally break through the skin’s surface. I have not had a problematic ingrown hair since I started using this. Just buy it, it’ll surprise you in so many wise you’ve never imagined.” – Diane
