Human Nature Natural Strengthening Conditioner in Cool Peppermint; P49.75 (50 ml), P144.75 (200 ml), P299.75 (500 ml)
With the cooling and soothing properties of peppermint, this conditioner leaves your hair feeling all the cleaner, refreshed and even tangle-free. You don’t need to worry about chemical residue on your hair and scalp, because it’s 99.5% natural and 100% free from harmful chemicals.
It’s made with a rich fusion of soybean, avocado and sunflower oil that nourish your hair from roots to tips, keeping it soft and healthy. The hydrolyzed wheat protein in the ingredients helps fortify your hair, helping protect it from much-dreaded hair fall.
Palmolive Naturals Body Wash, P80 (200 ml)
No matter how nourishing and fragrant a body wash may be, if it’s not formulated to be gentle on skin, then it might be doing more harm than good. This new body wash line from Palmolive promises to keep your skin moisturized and with a light fragrance that lingers all day. It comes in three variants: Ultra Moisture with milk proteins and olive extracts, Soft Moisture with milk proteins and honey extracts, and Calming Moisture with milk proteins and cherry blossom extracts. They’re all 100% soap-free, pH balanced, and dermatologically tested to suit your skin.
The Body Shop Honeymania Body Scrub, P995
Sometimes, it’s not enough to cleanse your body daily in order to take care of your skin. To reveal more youthful skin, exfoliate twice a week. The Body Shop’s Honeymania Body Scrub, with exfoliating salt grains, is enriched with organically harvested Community Fair Trade shea from Ghana, and beeswax from Cameroon, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth for up to 24 hours.
Any exfoliating session requires deep moisturization afterwards, as skin is stripped of its dead skin cells. Before heading out, it’s important to pack on the SPF as well to keep the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays at bay. Vaseline’s Healthy White Instant Fair Visible Fairness Lotion not just locks in moisture in the skin, but also makes it appear fairer and more even-toned, immediately. The main ingredients are Microreflectors, Vitamin B3 that give long-term and healthy whitening and triple sunscreens.
