1. Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, P460 “This is definitely the closest dupe for the Beauty blender! It is so soft and blends products so nicely. The finish with this product is amazing. So smooth and not creasy. LOVE IT! It may suck up more product than the beauty blender but it’s worth buying. The price is very reasonable. It is easy to wash. I like using it dry for matter, more full coverage looks and damp for dewy, natural finish! You should definitely try it!” – Samia

2. Surya Brazil Hair Cream (Dark Brown), P650 “I’m so glad I gave it a try because this is it for me! Since regular hair dyes fade in a few days anyway, a henna options which washes off eventually is okay. Since this product doesn’t contain harsh chemicals like regular dyes, it has a lovely smell and it doesn’t sting or turn my hair rough even when I leave it in for a while. It is also reusable so great for touch ups and it immediately colored my grays on contact. I am in love.” – Cristina

3. Tony Moly Lemon Foam Cleanser, P198 “I am super impressed! I have been using the product for about a week now and I can already tell the difference it is giving my skin as compared to my previous facial wash products! I love the scent, how it refreshes my skin, and how the softness stays for hours! This is really of great value to your money with the price and the amount of product you get plus all the goodness your skin can get from it! Highly recommended!!!” – Kristina

4. Skinlite Aloe Nose Pore Strips, P70 “I’ve tried a couple of drugstore nose strips a while back and nothing compares to this one. After cleansing and scrubbing my face, I splashed lots of water on my nose area (very important), and put this on. I let it stay for about 20 minutes and by then I can already tell that this strip is unlike the others. It really stuck to my skin! I like that there were only very few whiteheads left when I removed it (which is saying a lot because before, I used to apply two rounds of nose strips in one session just to get everything out), and I also like that my nose wasn’t very itchy afterwards! STOCKING UP ON THESE.” – Celena

5. Benton Fermentation Eye Cream, P1,200 “Fermented skin care FTW! This fabulous eyecream has a high content of skin-beneficial fermented ingredients like Galactomyces and Bifida Ferment Lysate which work together really well. It also has ingredients which stimulate cell growth and repair! After trying out a few eye creams and gels, I would say that this is the best eye cream I have ever tried. It is definitely way better than the Mizon snail repair eye cream that I purchased months ago. This eye cream has been raved about by a YouTuber that I follow: Gothamista, which is one of the reasons why I bought this product. It is not sticky upon application and is easily absorbed by my skin. I have oily lids, so this didn’t weigh my skin down or make my lids feel oilier. I’d say that this is a good investment for me and I will most likely gift this for my mom for Christmas. :D I love that this comes in a tube, so it’s travel-friendly. I recommend this eye cream if you are concerned about anti-aging and if you want to minimize your fine lines, crow’s feet and dark circles. The fermented ingredients also work to make the skin around your peepers brighter.” – Nicole

6. Maybelline V-Face Duo Contour Stick, P499 “First time to use cream based for contouring. I started with City Colour contour effects and i think im ready to level up. A newbie in contouring and make up use, i find this product prefect for neophytes. Easy application, the design is very good you can handle it so easily. I bought the medium shade and it fits me well. Super blendable. A real value for your money.” – Liway

7. Mizon Snail Repairing Foam Cleanser, P350 “I’ve been using snail products for months now and Mizon Snail Repair Foam cleanser is one of my facial wash. I love how it cleanses my face without drying [it out]. It works well with my snail cream product, keeps my skin moisturized and soft to touch. A small amount can build up into thick foam that can cover your entire face.” – Mille

8. Lumiere Organiceuticals Sel du Soleil, “I’m a big fan of this eau de parfum - I’ve used it in summer and winter; though admittedly Queensland winters still feel like summer when the sun’s out. It feels light for an eau de parfum, but you now there isn’t any alcohol duping because it lasts the day. The scent comes off as sweet (I think it’s the vanilla that comes out on top when reacting with my skin) but not overwhelmingly so. I remember one day when I put it on in the morning before work, and after 10 hours, upon checking into the blood bank for a donation, the reception lady commenting that I smelled divine! I hesitated at first, and had to clarify if I smelled like donuts (the travel agency I work for is close to a donut shop, and I often pass by it on the way to the carpark). She ended up having a good laugh and we verified that the scent she liked was on my wrist” – Shiven

9. COSRX Centella Blemish Cream, P900 “Despite this being a spot cream I use it all over my face because it claims to heal both acne and scars. I have been using this for a week now and it definitely heals acne between 1-3 days. By that I mean my pimples truly flatten. I have yet to see my acne scars go away but that may need more time or maybe Vit C … The product itself is very thick and you will only need a small amount to cover your entire face. It comes with a tiny spatula to keep the product hygienic and stable. I have tan-dark skin so white casts in products are my concern. It kind of has a white cast but that will only stay for a bit. I find that it brightens my face a little (kind of like wearing a brightening primer) without making me look ashy. I love this spot treatment and I can no longer see myself without it.” – Nica

10. Hugger Cherry Bread DSLR Bag, now on sale at P2,339 (limited time only) “I’m very protective of my gadgets, especially my phone and DSLR. When attending events and press launches, I always make sure to bring my camera with me. This bag helps not only keep my camera safe from damage thanks to its padded interior, but it helps me organize all the other accessories I need for it like the battery charger, extra lens caps, extra batteries, etc. I can even store my phone in it! I also love how it’s water resistant for those days when I’ve forgotten an umbrella and it starts to rain. My camera and everything else inside remains completely dry! The vibrant, red of the bag makes it look really cute and chic too. If you love your camera as much as I do, you’ll definitely need this bag!” – Arian
