Having to face the challenge that is the Philippines' humidity is serious business. Our moisturizers, for one, have to juggle being hydrating and nourishing with being lightweight and non-greasy, because otherwise we won't even bother using them more than once. Thankfully, there are products that manage to tick all the right boxes, and you can find our favorites below!

23.5°N Bamboo Ultra Hydrating Lotion, P1,550, Beauty Bar


A nourishing lotion that soothes as it hydrates. The lightweight texture is perfect for our humid weather!

La Mer Moisturizing Matte Lotion, P14,900, Rustan's


The words moisturizing and matte might look weird positioned next to each like that, but La Mer took on the challenge of creating a product that's both anyway. This balances the skin with weightless moisture, while softening the appearance of pores and shine.

Estée Lauder Nutritious Rosy Prism Radiant Gel Emulsion, P3,750, Rustan's

For dull skin that needs a radiance boost, slap on a layer of this for a quick fix. Store it in the fridge for a spa-worthy cooling effect!

La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Sheer, price available upon request, Rustan's

IMAGE Rustans

Fact: not all firming products are thick and greasy. Proof: this lifting cream that improves skin elasticity without turning you into a grease ball.

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream, P995, SM Beauty


An aloe-based moisturizer without oils, fragrances, preservatives, and alcohol. It's the perfect cocktail for highly-reactive skin, if you ask us!

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, P1,650, SM Megamall

IMAGE Kiehls

The "fresh hydration" claim on the tub couldn't be any more accurate. This leaves a thin layer of hydration that combination and oily skin can count on no matter how high the sun sits.

In Her Element Rose Gel Serum Moisturizer, P895, Beautymnl

IMAGE In Her Element

Achieving glassy skin doesn't require using a K-beauty product, because this homegrown gem has you covered. It helps brighten, reduces the appearances of pores and fine lines, and most importantly, it smells like roses.
