  • Dry skin?
    Try Human Nature Bare Necessity Cleansing Balm

    Different from your regular cleansing gel or cream, the balm liquefies into oil once it’s in contact with your skin. It effectively removes dirt, oil, and makeup without stripping off your skin’s natural moisture, making it perfect for the cold weather in the coming months.

    Why we love it: Bare Necessity Cleansing Balm has pure virgin coconut oil that helps hydrate and nourish skin as you cleanse. It removes even waterproof and longwearing makeup, which, if not washed off properly, could cause the breakdown of natural elastin and collagen, causing damage to your skin.

    How to use it: Gently massage a small scoop of Bare Necessity Cleansing Balm onto face until it lathers up. Wipe the residue with a clean towel, and rinse off thoroughly. Available at humanheartnature.com for P395 (40g)


    Dull skin?
    Try Happy Skin Sakura Bloom Brightening Peeling Gel

    The culprits behind dullness are often dead skin cells that sit on top of skin, and dehydration. Thus, there is a need to exfoliate. However, some skin exfoliators in the market can be too strong, causing skin to be drier, irritated, or inflamed.

    Sakura Bloom Brightening Peeling Gel's (P799) exfoliating formula reveals new skin while moisturizing it. It's an innovative water gel that transforms into gentle exfoliating particles as you massage it on skin. It’s suited even for sensitive skin and can be used to exfoliate the knees, elbows, and cuticles for an instant spa manicure effect.

    Why we love it: The special formula contains 91% water for gentle, yet effective exfoliation. It’s loaded with Cherry Blossom Extracts to moisturize skin and help lift away dirt, impurities, and dead skin cells, revealing new skin and enjoy brighter skin over time. It does not contain any parabens, colorant, synthetic fragrances, sulfate, mineral oil, synthetic dyes, and microbeads. 

    How to use it: Once a week, gently massage it on clean, dry skin using circular motions. Rinse with water and follow with a moisturizer. Do not use on broken or inflamed skin. Available at Happy Skin for P799.

    Old-looking skin?
    Try Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

    Look closely in the mirror and you'll notice fine, fine lines around the eyes and your forehead, even in your 20s. That's bound to get worse as years go by, but you can halt it with a good skincare regimen.

    Why we love it: With a new formula that now has Hyaluronic Acid and a greater amount of Vitamin C, this customer favorite with a heightened potency gives skin an instant boost in radiance and the appearance of smoothness. Vitamin C, used topically, is known to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while Hyaluronic Acid acts like a sponge and draws in moisture to skin to refine skin texture. It's absorbed by the skin quickly and does not feel greasy or oily, and features a pleasant, citrus scent.

    How to use it: After cleansing and toning, apply a small amount of Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate all over your face. Top with your moisturizer and your sunscreen. Available at Kiehls Greenbelt 5, Alabang Town Center, TriNoma and Shangri-La for P3,675.
