What’s a feeling that’s merry and bright? The feeling you get when a good find makes it all the way to HG status, of course! In this week’s Top Reviews, see the latest batch 5-star faves that are worthy of your time and coins. Sneak ‘em into those wishlists—because, who knows, Santa might just be listening.

1. Celeteque DermoScience Acne Cleansing Gel, P495
“I recently had a really bad breakout and though my facial wash then was doing a good job, I decided to give this one a try. What I do is I lather it a bit on my skin then I leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off. The gel is pretty thick so a little actually goes a long way. So far, so good! I haven’t had any additional pimples poppin’ out of nowhere since I started using this and it’s been helping me lighten my pimple scars along with the rest of my skincare regimen. Definitely HG worthy. Plus, it’s affordable!” – Shy

2. Bath Junkies Moroccan Mambo Bath Bar, now on sale at P120 (limited time only)
“It smells amazing straight out of the package! It doesn’t melt easily, and it leaves enough moisture in the skin. Having dry skin, it feels awful to get out of the shower and suffer that dry, abrasive feeling from the lack of moisture. However, this soap is great for that, leaves enough moisture in the skin, and smells heavenly. I’d order this again anytime once I’m finished with my first one.” – Krysta

3. My Scheming Natto Enzyme Hydrating Mask, P95
“I love the black mask series from My Scheming! They fit my face perfectly and this instantly brightened my complexion. This one was no exception. It was dripping with essence and the mask remained moist even after 15 minutes. It kept my skin hydrated and reduced the inflammation of some of my blemishes. I’m definitely going to buy this again.” – Carren

4. Natural Health Cacao Nibs (Naked), P175
“This is one of those treats I generously give myself after a looooong circuit workout. The packaging also has a ziplock and for me that’s a plus. Aside from being super healthy, it’s budget-friendly. It’s bitter, as expected, but goes great with yogurt and fruit shakes. Like the coated one, the package is more than enough to be used for months.” – Dominique

5. Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam, now on sale at P329 (limited time only)
“Upon receiving the item, I didn’t realize the tube was this big. A little amount goes a long way and you can use this for a long period of time. I love the green, natural scent when applying, it’s like putting mint onto your face. With the help of my human nature’s tea tree oil, my breakouts minimized. I was afraid that I might regret purchasing this and instead buy the Innisfree green tea, but I’m glad I didn’t. It just gives me a natural and hydrating glow.” – Korina

6. Milani Make It Last Setting Spray, P650
“This was a miracle. Back then, my makeup always looked dull 4 hrs after applying it, but now it stays fresh looking even after 8 hrs! I always carry this in my bag if I ever need to refresh my makeup. It’s so handy! I’ve used it as a primer before but really couldn’t see the difference, but it does set the makeup really well!” – Judy

7. Peripera Airy Ink Velvet, now on sale at P430 (limited time only)
“I don’t know where to start with this product. Color pay-off is really good. I love how it feels moisturizing, kinda buttery but still okay, and on my lips it shows a matte-like texture. If you’re a beginner to K-beauty, tints by Peripera are a must to try. I became an instant fan of my brown coral since it looks very k-popish, perfect for my age. This is now my go-to tint whenever I go out. It is quite expensive compared to other products, but this one definitely does not disappoint.” – Angel

8. MAC Satin Lipstick (Twig), P1,050
“If you are looking for a nice my-lips-but-better shade but just a tad pinker, then look no further because Mac Twig is the answer to your search. I love that it’s neutral enough to be a nice everyday lip color. The satin formula is like a creamy matte. It just has a tiny sheen to it and isn’t drying at all. This is a safe color that compliments a lot of skin colors.” – Maria

9. Manila Superfoods Flower Tea (10g), P95
“This tea is such an eye candy. I love the blue color and it changes to purple when you add kalamansi. Tastes like green tea. I love to drink this an hour after dinner as it relaxes my tummy. Will buy next time the matcha milk and jasmine tea. I just love the products of Manila Superfoods. Great quality and affordable.” – Ma.Julie

10. Trail Bites Happy Trail (75g), P90
“It has been a few months since I started really engaging in skincare and all, and I realized that in order for my strict regimen to have positive results, I also have to seriously consider what I eat. So I decided to order this to have some healthy snacks. I am extremely satisfied with the taste and the freshness of the product. I can’t help but munch on these! Will definitely order again.” – Jessica
