Overwhelmed by the wealth of skin care implements available in the market? You're not alone! Most of the time, we don't even know which products work and those that just fall flat.
We can't help but feel grateful to beauty bloggers who do the dirty work for the rest of womankind, who try and test new launches to find the products that you would want to buy. In the spirit of "sharing is caring and caring is love," we asked five beauty bloggers to list down their top three skin care favorites. Peep their picks below:
BEA OF THE DALAGA PROJECT
1. Snoe Awesome Poresome Beauty Bar
"This cleanser made my skin smoother and brighter in just three days. Ingredients such as calamansi extract and witch hazel are natural astringents—meaning I can skip the toner altogether!"
2. Belif The True Cream - Aqua Bomb
"As a powerful moisturizer that doesn't feel heavy or greasy, this herbal gel cream acts as a soothing finishing touch to my nightly routine!"
3. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
"I love how this powder-based exfoliator gently buffs without tearing at the skin, making it ideal for once-a-day use."
MARIANA OF THE BEAUTY BEE
1. Physiogel A.I. Crème
"This super gentle anti-itch cream is my cure-all for redness, irritation, and any other kind of sensitivity on my face."
2. Shu Uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil
"Nothing else cleans my face as thoroughly and as gently as this does. Worth the investment a thousand times over!"
3. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
"This intensive moisturizing cream has been around since 1930! I use it mostly as a lip balm, but it can cure any bit of dryness on any part of the body."
NIKKI OF ASK ME WHATS
1. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
"[A] multi-tasking product that helps relieve dry spots on my skin. Aside from that, I also use this to help relieve chapped lips!"
2. Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil
"This cleansing oil removes ALL traces of makeup (waterproof included) without much effort."
3. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +
"This is one of the few moisturizers that really help relieve my dry skin."
SABS OF MUSINGS OF A MAKEUP MAVEN
1. H2O+ Aqualibrium Cleansing Face Wipes
"I love that these water-based wipes refresh my skin when I have been out in the sun a bit. It cools my skin down, leaving it moisturized and awake, too!"
2. Snoe It's Oat-K! It's Alright! 3 in 1 Foaming Cleansing Oil
"I am currently addicted to this cleanser because you can go straight to cleansing without using makeup removers, even for waterproof makeup!"
3. Physiogel Intensive Crème
"This product saves my skin when my skin gets flaky."
SHARI OF THE MISTY MOM
1. Clarins Shaping Facial Lift
"A tightening serum that improved my double-chin by almost completely eliminating it. Needs maintenance and is not for lazy people in order to see results."
2. Avène Thermal Spring Water
"This is my Holy Grail skincare product. I suffered from massive cystic breakouts, and this water was the only product that relieved the onslaught. Don't just dismiss it as water in a can!"
3. Alpha H Liquid Gold Radiance
"I've said goodbye to physical exfoliants forever since I discovered this chemical exfoliant that leaves my skin brighter and softer the next morning!"
