1. VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Sport 70 (185g), P2,395
“This is my favorite sunblock of all-time. OF ALL-TIME. I’ve been using it for 8 years now, and a single tube can last me YEARS. I used this when I was still playing ultimate frisbee, and even when I was sweating like crazy with games from 11am-3pm, my skin never got sunburnt, even if I did darker. It’s incredibly sweat-proof and waterproof. For beach vacations, I only ever became one shade darker when I was under the sun during the same time when I used to play frisbee. Otherwise, all those other times (whether I was in Cebu, Hawaii, Boracay, wherever) I never burned or became tan (a little too effective maybe). Yes it’s very expensive, but I do believe it is very much worth it.” – Alexa

2. Viseart Bridal Satin Eye Palette, P3,800
“These eyeshadows glow! Mesmerizing to look at. Soft and buttery and a dream to apply. You don’t even want to dip your brush because the eyeshadow pans are soooo pretty! For the price this palette delivers so much more than my chanel and Shu Uemura eye palettes! Love it!” – Rossanna

3. NARS Bronzing Powder, P1,950
“I have this in Laguna, and it gives me a sun-kissed glow all year long. I especially like that it doesn’t look orange on my skin, like many bronzers I’ve tried in the past. It complements my skin tone perfectly, even during the -Ber months when I am more pale.” – Danielle

4. Zenutrients Milk & Honey Soap, P185
“This smells like something out of a bakery or breakfast! Helps keep the skin smooth and supple. Results may vary depending how dry your skin is and most organic soaps takes a little bit of time but on the first wash you can really feel your skin is as soft as a baby’s butt. Helps brighten skin (try exfoliating first then use this to nourish). It definetily helps avoid future stretch marks (its one of those steps plus a good body lotion/oil). This soap is a must try..” – Fatima

5. PRO Studio Beauty Exclusives Set of 10: Must-Have Brush Guards, now on sale at P225
“I’m going to be completely honest here, makeup brushes are expensive, and I save up like crazy just to be able to buy them, so a girl has to keep her investments well protected! And these brush guards gets the job done! They are perfect for people who like to take their makeup brushes with them when they travel (like me!) save yourself from the horror of deformed and dirty brush bristles!” – Joyce

6. Hurraw! All-Natural Lime Lip Balm, P280
“I first knew about this brand when I went to Tokyu Hands in Harajuku. I immediately got the lime flavor because it smelled great and it’s organic but did not use the tester on my mouth, just on my hand. This is currently my favorite lipbalm as of the moment. Very moisturizing and hasn’t melted on me yet even if I accidentally leave it in the car all day. The only thing this doesn’t work with are waterproof liquid lipsticks that are supposed to last all day since the oils in the lipbalm formula break down the liquid lipstick formula but that’s very understandable since you remove those with oil. Overall I really love this product and I’m so happy I can buy these here in Manila because as I type I’m placing an order for backups and other flavors.” – Angela

7. Banila Co. Clean It Zero Super Size, P1,250
“Been using this product for about a year now and it’s been pretty amazing. The product washes away my make-up very easily and keeps my skin moisturised as well. I’ve also seen the difference it made for my skin for the past year and I’ve noticed how my skin is a lot softer and that I haven’t been getting any pimples since. Definitely recommend this!” – Francine

8. Orly Naughty, P385
“I have this gem on my nails right now. I bought from an actual store, but I want to share here what an awesome polish this is. It’s almost a dead-on dupe for Chanel Vamp/Rouge Noir, only better IMO, as this won’t break the bank and is more accessible. One coat gives an oxblood red, but it is uneven, so two coats would be best. Depending on the thickness, the second coat can give a colour that varies between deep oxblood red and inky black red. I like my polish to be even, so I laid it on thickly for the second coat, and got an almost-black red. It’s sooooo shiny and rich-looking and lush. It gives off a really mysterious, femme fatale vibe. It’s even better with a top coat on. Longevity is average, but it’s also not poor. Totally recommend.” – Kathleen

9. Beauty Blender, P995
“I have long been using traditional brushes as applicator but this beauty blender really changed the game for make up fanatics. This allows me to have the natural dewy look and helps my foundation stay longer. Perfect for those who don’t want to re-apply make up during the day. It helps that it comes in a cute, girly color too! This purchase is worth it.” – Kristine

10. Shiseido Bestselling Perfect Whip Foam Cleanser, P408
“I suggest you find the Japanese CM on YT on how to produce the whipped lather by hand, or find a cleansing net (I made mine by cutting a small piece from a bath pouf) to make foaming a lot easier and faster. The actual preparation of foam is very relaxing, and washing with it is a pleasure because of its dense lather. There are times that I actually look forward to using this in the evening, lol, because I admire how much foam it makes. Leaves my skin fresh, squeaky clean and bright. It is quite drying for daily use so I use this when I use oil to remove my makeup, and it cleanses away all the dirt and oil.” – Elena
