Beauty is ultimately just about looking and feeling like the best versions of ourselves—what ever that may mean for you. Some of us prefer to go bare-faced, some only take the no-makeup makeup route, and some are just glamazons at heart. There’s no wrong way to go about it. All that matters is that you’re using the right products. Time and time again, our customers have recommended some of the most underrated gems on site and this roundup is no exception. Their 10 favorites of the week, below!

1. Ellana Brush Cleaner, P399 “I think because of this product, I am extra eager to clean my brushes. I admit that sometimes I get lazy to clean my brushes, which is really bad because as we all know, they accumulate bacteria and you don’t want that on your face. However, because of this, I don’t find cleaning my brushes a tedious task anymore, I actually like to do it now because this smells really good and I feel refreshed smelling this one.” – Jean, 22

2. Vitapack Whitening Soap, now on sale at P269 (limited time only) “I bought this primarily for its whitening claims and somehow, because I’ve seen some say that it helped with their pimples. And yes IT’S TRUE. I’ve seen much improvement on my skin—definitely has lessened my acne!!! I think it’s that one product that my skin has been waiting for for years and I’m thankful that I’ve discovered this. Please don’t stop making this product because it would be really hard for me if you do!!! Although I didn’t much like its scent (I’d rather if it didn’t have any at all) and quite pricey, the effects it has provided me overpowered those flaws… so thank you Vitapack!!!” – Laika, 18

3. Sunnies Face Fluffmatte in Baked, P345 “Ever since I started using lipsticks, I always love the peach or orange shade. This is the best orange w/ a hint of brown shade that will not make you look like you took a photo from camera360. :) It’s terracotta shade as they describe it. It’s also a plus that it is matte. It transfers and not kiss proof. But still worth trying. I’d definitely buy again and will get Girl Crush next time.” – Laiza

4. V&M Naturals Karanja Oil (30ml), now on sale at P935 (limited time only) “I’ve been using this product for one month and the results are astonishing. I usually have the occasional breakouts on my jaw line area but since I started using this product together with their Copaiba oil, I noticed a dramatic decrease of pimple growth in that area. In just two weeks! After a month of continuous use, my pimples are now all gone! I just apply two drops every night it is a bit heavy though but nevertheless I like this product, will definitely buy again!” – Jhonathan

5. Innisfree Jeju Orchid Enriched Cream, P1,250 “I bought this for my trip to the states during winter. I already have dry skin so I wanted to make sure my skin was well moisturized for the trip. Prior to that, I also started noticing lines on my face so I wanted something with anti-aging properties. The Innisfree orchid line was made for just that. In the states though, I could use it both morning and night, but in the Philippines, I only use it during my night time routine because it is quite sticky. You only get 50ml so the price is up there for that amount. It is, however, a really good cream and it even helped with my undereyes! Unless I find a cheaper alternative, I’ll be repurchasing this!” – Tricia

6. Colourpop No Filter Foundation, P990 “Been using this as my everyday foundation and it is the bomb! I really love how weightless it feels and that its kind of like a second skin~ On any other foundations I get to see my pores but with this there is nothing! Tho it says matte finish but it not really a matte. But I still love love love it!” – Ira

7. Cocobody Virgin Coconut Hair Shine, P70 “My hair dried up due to bleaching and sun damage so I decided to use oil for it. I use this together with organic conditioner (also coconut or aloe vera) and the combination really helps my skin. This product alone gives shine to my hair whenever I use it. I actually feel incomplete whenever I forgot to apply this on my hair for the day. Although it has a strong smell but I guess that’s because there’s no to less [chemicals] added to fight off the natural smell of coconut oil.” – Patricia

8. 7Grains Company Puree Lemonsito/Calamansi (300ml), P160 “This is now my HG product .Since my usual combo of ACV and honey is a bit hard to achieve because my favorite ACV brand is always out of stock in BeautyMNL…I thought why not give calamansi and honey a try.Rather than squeezing 1 kilo of calamansi or lemons.This and some honey should keep kidney stones at bay for me” – Ma Rudylyn

9. Vice Cosmetics Aura Glow (3.5g), P145 “I watched Mama Anne Klutz review these highlighters on Youtube. She loved them, so I was curious to try one for myself. I have the shade Shimmering, which I think is perfect for all skin colors with its rose gold hue. I’ve tried many buttery highlighters, so in my opinion, the formula of Aura Glow is in between powdery and buttery (Not bad at all for only P145!). When it comes to performance - it applies beautifully and leaves an almost wet-looking, glistening finish. It creates a subtle yet noticeable glow, and you can build it up for a mega-blinding effect. It’s safe to say I’m impressed. The one downside to this product is that it fades easily. Pro tip: Locking the highlighter in place with a reliable setting spray can help maximize its lasting power on this skin. You don’t have to like Vice Ganda (I’m certainly not a fan) to like this highlighter. For the price you pay, this is 100% worth it!” – Princess

10. V&M Naturals Coco Vanille Cellulose Lip Polish, on sale at P285 (limited time only) “I always have chapped lips ever since and this is my first time to try a lip mask, I decided to go for it since its cheap. I use this thrice a week (morning) so that when I will apply my lipstick it’ll look good. It really do its job! You just have to leave it to your lips for like 5 minutes and then start rubbing it in a circular motion then you will have a soft and pinkish lips after!!!! THIS IS A MUST TRY PRODUCT” – Maria
