We’ve all experienced some form of separation anxiety when traveling. For beauty junkies, that usually means leaving behind our favourite products, because a 10-step routine can’t always fit in your carry-on. Well, problem solved—today’s Top Reviews roundup is a jetsetter’s dream come true! These affordable travel-friendly buys mean you’ll never have to part with your staples again.

1. It’s Skin Power 10 Formula VB Effector, now on sale at P865 (limited time only) “I’m on [my] second bottle now and i think this product is such an hg for people with oily skin. I noticed that my pores got tighter and less sebum is released from my pores in the morning only 3-4 nights of applying this. Its so great with people who has problems with breaking-out due to excessive oiliness and it doesn’t hurt that its cheaper than other anti-acne serums out there, those effective ones. I’m so glad that beautyMNL has VB Effector bc its so hard to find trustee online sellers nowadays, and its usually out of stock so you gotta invest your time signing up and waitlist. But I tell you, it’s worth it!” – April

2. Celeteque DermoScience Brightening Facial Wash, P150 “When used consistenly [sic], this facial cleanser really brightens the face and reduces its dullness! I have weird sleeping patterns due to work and this takes toll on my skin. However, this facial wash helps me maintain a glowing [complexion] and vibrant skin. Super happy with this product and I would definitely buy another tube once I run out.” – Kris

4. Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Kiwi Mask, now on sale at P110 “I was taken aback by the milkiness of the product but I didn’t mind because it was so moisturizing on my skin.

6. Zenutrients Tea Tree Shampoo, P234 “Decided to try out this shampoo because 1) my long-time commercial brand shampoo was giving me terribly flaky dandruff 2) I want to consciously support local, environmentally friendly brands. After using it for 5 washes, I believe I’ve found my forever shampoo! I love the gentle cooling effect it has on my scalp, I love how squeaky clean my hair feels afterwards, and most of all, I love how it eliminated my dandruff. I use about 30 mL per wash, and pair it with Zenutrients Honey and Coconut Conditioner (another product I’ve come to love). Highly recommended!” – Nicah
