Even though our movements around the Metro are limited due to the ongoing health crisis, self-care must not stop at drinking vitamins and thorough sanitation. Our skincare routine and beauty regimen can still help lessen the stress that we’re feeling during these challenging times. And in case you’re thinking that makeup will no longer be important if we stay at home – WRONG! Simpler makeup options are still necessary especially for people like me who still need to look presentable while attending online client meetings.
For recommendations and discounts, you can check out the following:
1.Garnier Superglow Duo
Price: Php 788 per bundle (on sale for Php 649 on August 18)
Composed of the Garnieir Vitamin C Serum (Php 499) and the Garnier Light Complete Day Cream (Php 289), this Vitamin C serum and day cream combo can give us the glow that we need after a stressful day. This duo is meant to help lighten dark spots, moisturize our skin, and protect us from UV rays with its SPF 36. Our skin needs Vitamin C both inside and outside, of course.
For extra savings, you can avail this bundle on August 18 or during Shopee’s 9.9 sale for free shipping!
2. Garnier Face Masks
Price: Php 79 each
We’ve already published a review about these sheets and I still stand by my recommendation until today. There are different types of moisturizing and brightening face masks that we can choose from! This is a good treat for our skin after an entire day of wearing itchy face masks that sometimes lead to acne breakouts. Best paired with a Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On (Php 259) before going to bed!
3. L’Oreal Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence
Price: Php 799
This ultra-lightweight facial essence is a good add-on to our skincare routine especially during days when we need to withstand the itchiness on our face due to sweat and heat underneath layers of protective gear. The Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence contains brightening actives (hepes and salicyclic acid) to keep our skin youthful and radiant. It comes in three sizes — 22ml, 65ml and 130ml. This can be used after toning.
4. Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation
Price: Php 249 (18ml)
May we be outside for a quick grocery run or at home for an online video conference, the Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation is a good option to consider if you’re looking for something lightweight with a matte finish. It has a blendable formula that mattifies and refines pores for a natural finish. Works well on oily skin, too! Maybelline Fit Me currently has 20 different shades so we can pick which one suits our skintone.
Shopee is also offering this for only Php 184 on August 18 so online shoppers can get bigger savings!
5.Maybelline Color Sensational Liquid Matte Lip Tint
Price: Php 199 each
I’m a fan of matte lippies and the Maybelline Color Sensational Liquid Matte Lip Tint is one of my first few that I actually liked since it can be used both as a lip and cheek tint. It has a powder technology for a weightless wear and the color of the lippie stays true to what you can see outside the packaging. It’s currently available in 10 soft matte shades but 02 Strip it Off has been my go-to shade.
All shades are also on sale (Php 179 only) via Shopee until August 18!
6. Garnier Micellar Water (Argan Oil)
Price: Php 149
For those who are looking for an affordable makeup remover that can easily remove any tuype of makeup – may it be waterproof or not, I highly recommend using oil-based makeup removers like the Garnier Micellar Water Argan Oil. One bottle is enough to last you for over a month if you use makeup on a daily basis. However, you can also opt for other Micellar Water variants like their Blue and Pink bottles for the price of Php 249.
7. L’Oreal Paris Excellence Crème
Price: Php 449
With salons still closed, there’s little chance for us to dye our growing roots or change our hair color with the help of hair professionals. However, there are DIY hair color kits available that we can try in the meantime. One of which is the L’Oreal Paris Excellence Cream, which has an advanced triple care technology that delivers long-lasting hair color while also providing moisture within the hair strands – this way, our hair won’t be prone to damage even if we color our hair on our own.
You can get each pack for less than the original price via Shopee, too!
On top of all these, don’t forget to drink vitamins and enough glasses of water daily to keep our bodies strong and healthy. Allot a few minutes for relaxation and peace so you won’t get too stressed out. Hope this helps! Keep safe (and glowing), everyone.
