A few weeks back, I’ve shared my love for Human Nature products. Today, I’ll share my other loved beauty stash from Manila, Philippines.
I love buying cosmetics, bath stuff, perfume and colognes. I’m such a girl when it comes to these things. I make it a point to bring home some beauty products I discover during travel. In Manila, they’ve got lots of good beauty products that are reasonably priced. Here are some of my favourites:
Camay Bath Shower Gels in Grapefruit, Rose and Vanilla variants. I remember Camay soap bars came out when I was young and when I came back to Manila last year, they now come in the form of shower gels. I bought all the three variants and used them during my stay. The Husband loved them too. I loved how fragrant they are and how they made my skin supple shower after shower. My favourite from all them was the Grapefruit variant as it’s the most refreshing of all three.
These aren’t new but two of my most loved fragrances come from Johnson’s Baby Cologne and Baby Bench Colognia. These are the most refreshing fragrances especially in Summer.
Ever Bilena Magic Lipstick and Color Pencil. I use the Color Pencil for shaping my eyebrows and it stays on for the whole day. The Magic Lipstick is called such because it stays on for a long time…as in! I use the Magic Lipstick as a lipstick base and then layer up with another lip colour. It goes well with most lip colours. The best thing about these two products is that they are very affordable.
Kokuryu Placenta Cream is a Japanese brand but I found it in an SM Department Store. We have placenta creams here in Australia but I found Kokuryu better. It’s runny and very greasy–you may not like the feel of it–but it never makes my skin oily during the day. I wake up with skin that’s hydrated and fresh. It’s my best Winter moisturiser to date. I finished a small bottle last year and my face never went dry even during the coldest days of Winter. I asked my Mom to get me another bottle for this year’s winter season which she brought with her last November. The best thing about it is it’s very affordable (not more than P300).
The Philippines have a lot of beauty and well-being products and I hope to discover some of them when I visit again.
