1. Skin Genie Bye-Bye Bush Cold Sugaring Wax, P150 “I love the smell and I love how this is easy to work with. It’s soft enough to grab a chunk with just your fingers but also the right hardness to knead it. It doesn’t stick to your fingers …” – Alana

2. Pink Sugar Nothing To Wear, P399 “I gravitate towards plum shades to perk up what would otherwise be neutrals for daily wear. This is a deep, plum shade, one that works well with minimal eye make-up since you want the lips to be the focal point of the look. Best to apply this with a matching lip liner since this stands out when the lip lines are well defined. Hope Liz Lanuzo and Pink Sugar make more shades!” – Louise

3. Clover Collection Contour Brush, P360 “I was initially worried when I got the brush cause I’m used to doing my contour make up with an angled brush. But I really needed a new one as my old one is very very old. Not gonna lie I didn’t really want to spend a lot of money for make-up brush that’s why I picked this up. It’s quite smaller than what I expected but it’s actually perfect you get that straight and sharp contour line that people achieve after they’ve baked their jawline. The is also perfect for warming up the hairline because it doesn’t go everywhere because of the brush size. Brush is very soft and no fallout too! It’s great!” – Eriko

4. Tony Moly Crystal Blusher, now on sale at P278 (limited time only) “I purchased the Crystal Blusher in Bronzing Brown about a month ago and i have found myself reaching for it more often than my other bronzers. It is so versatile that I use it as blush if i just want to add some color to my almost pale skin, I build it up when i want contour and if i want that sun-kissed skin look, i use it as how you would with your regular bronzer. It feels so light on the skin too. Buildable cos it’s not too dark, just the right shade of brown. :)” – Monica

5. David Jones Gerry Bag, P2,499 “… easily one of my favorite bags ever! I tend to bring a lot of stuff with me when I’m headed out like my powerbank, makeup kit, iPad, etc. and this bag holds pretty much everything I need! It has 3 ‘compartments’ meaning I can easily organize and separate items. One of the compartments is even hidden between the outer two, making it extra safe and secure and that’s where I place my more important valuables like my wallet. Unlike some leather bags I’ve had, it also doesn’t leave behind obvious water spots when it gets wet so keeping it clean and looking great is easy too! Lastly, the strap that comes with it is comfy and strong and more importantly, doesn’t dig into my shoulder when my bag gets a bit too heavy. Let’s just say I’m all too happy I was able to buy this before it got sold out!” – Arian

6. Happy Island Candle Co. Pineapple Mango, P199 “Now I know why this is one of their best sellers! This smells super duper great! It smells so smooth, do I even make sense? Hahaha! The smell of pineapple and mango are equally present. I like lighting this up during my quiet time. I feel like I am sending my prayers with a pleasing aroma. It has that “sakto lang” scent. Not too strong. I plan to visit Manaoag and have my candles blessed. If you are that kind of person who like burning candles as an offering, Happy Island Candles are for you! I also got this in tin can. One tin can can last you for a long time.” – Joy

7. Sterilite Slim Storage Tray (White), P79 “I have weird compulsions to buy these Sterilite trays whenever they’re available as I always find uses for them. I use these long, slim ones for my face essences, serums, and whatnot. I have another that holds my eyeshadow palettes and extra long makeup brushes. They’re definitely useful so I suggest that you get them while they’re in stock :)” – Nikki

8. St. Ives Collagen Elastin Body Lotion, P259 “The products of St.Ives are really must-haves. My skin really feels smooth and its fragrance lasts. Super love it! These are my ultimate skin Holy Grail. I didn’t expect such result at first but after few tries , you will really see the effect and you can feel it. Actually, first use ko pa lang super nabilib na ako. And its scent lasts den. Plus, the it comes on a reasonable price. I will definitely use them again. I have plans of making these my permanent skin care products. You can try it yourself.” – Karen

9. SNP Animal Dragon Soothing Mask, P149 “This mask is best used when you are having breakouts. It really calms the zits and the redness of your face. The amount of essencee [sic] is just and right. You will wake up the next day with almost dried zits and clearer skin. I love this mask because it is always to the rescue!!!” – Keith

10. Holika Holika Aloe 99% Soothing Gel, P395 “Switched to Holika Holika Aloe 99% Soothing Gel 3 weeks ago. I wanted my last step to be more simpler ingredients-wise since I now layer multiple hydrating products. It’s very lightweight and since it’s 99% fermented aloe extract, there’s no room for irritants in the formula. I love it when the star ingredient is actually the main ingredient instead of being listed at the end after preservatives. I also like using this as a base for my custom moisturizer when I’m too lazy to do my whole skincare routine. I mix a small dollop of the aloe gel + a pump of my honey/propolis serum + 2 drops rosehip oil. I think this might be HG last step.” – Rozza
