It's been a while since I have posted a review of the skincare products that I am currently using and loving. That's why I've decided to do a round-up for you guys on my favorite products dedicated to skincare.
Bifesta Cleansing Express Eye Makeup Remover - Php 300 (145 ml) at Watsons
The oil and water formula mixes together to quickly remove waterproof eye makeup without stinging the eyes.
Sunkiller Perfect Water Essence Spf 50 - Php 499 (50 ml) at Watsons
It is non-sticky, lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin due to its unique watery gel texture. I love the cooling effect it gives, plus this product doesn't have the typical chemical scent compared to other sunscreens.
Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush - Php 2,190 via Mary Kay Beauty Consultants
I've been curious about cleansing brushes like Clarisonic, but I cannot justify the hefty price tag. Imagine paying Php 5-8k for a product that you are not even sure if it works for you right?! I'm glad I've found a cheaper alternative and at the same time works for me! I only use this once a week (nighttime) together with the Mary Kay Foaming Cleanser with MELA-CP (Php 785 for 100 ml). I immediately noticed that my skin looks radiant and glowing whenever I use this.
BN Extreme Whitening Face and Body Soap - Php 180 (220 g) at BN Whitening Shop
This soap contains glutathione, rose hip, kojic acid and arbutin to exfoliate and lighten the skintone. This is my 3rd bar already and I am quite satisfied with the results. I only use it on my body because i find it a bit drying when used on the face.
BN Whitening Scar Cream - Php 168 (10g); Php 294 (20g); Php 525 (40g)
Hormonal imbalance and stress causes breakouts especially on the chin area. I use this cream to lighten and dry up my pimples, and usually would notice results 3-5 days after application.
Olay Natural White Hydrating Glow Toner - Php 299 (150 ml) at Watsons
I think my skin got immune already to the old toner I am using. My fashion blogger friend Sweet recommended it to me when I asked her what skincare products she's using. I did her makeup during their Giordano Bank on Basics shoot and I can't help but notice how glowing her skin looks. This toner is alcohol-free which I love and doesn't cause breakouts.
Physiogel AI Lotion- Php 560 (100 ml) at Watsons
This moisturising lotion is heaven sent for super sensitive skin like mine. Hypoallergenic, contains no colorants, perfume and preservatives. I only use this on my face 2x a week during nighttime to moisturise and hydrate my skin.
Purederm Makeup Remover Wipes (Argan oil and Collagen variants) - Php 80 each at Watsons
These inexpensive makeup wipes removes my face makeup (BB Cream and powder) gently and effectively without drying my skin. Does not remove waterproof eye makeup.
The Argan oil variant restores hydration and softness, while the Collagen one is anti-aging. I have tried Nivea's makeup wipes, the Hydrating and Exfoliating ones but I like Purederm better coz it doesn't irritate my skin.
Hope you enjoyed reading my skincare favorites.
Till next time,
