There are products that promise results, and there are products that actually deliver them. Below is a list of skincare picks that have been tried and tested by us (and by people we know), and while it’s true that every person has specific needs, these products are interesting enough to warrant a try.

Nivea Oil in Lotion Cherry Blossom and Jojoba Oil

P169, Shopee


You probably have a long skincare routine for your face, but do you also give the rest of your body the same attention? Applying lotion nightly can help your skin repair itself while keeping moisture in, which is especially important if you’ve got the aircon on the whole night as it can really be drying.

FN TIP: Nivea has recently partnered with Shopee, so if you need to restock, simply head to their official online store.

Human Nature Hand and Foot Salve

P175, Beauty Bar

Having kalyo on the soles of your feet can be annoying, especially when they’re starting to peel off. This salve can help soothe your steppers after a long day at work. Massage it in after a nice, warm bath for best results.

Dr. PAWPAW Original Balm

P575, Beauty Bar


Are your lips always chapped? Or maybe you’ve been scratching on a bug bite that never seems to go away? Dr. PAPAW Original Balm contains papaya extract, aloe vera, and olive oil to help moisturize dry areas and sooth skin irritation. It can work on bungang-araw, too!

Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water

P866/150ml, Watson’s

You may think that this is only water, but what you’re paying for is actually thermal spring water and what it can do for your skin. A few sprays can help calm acne breakouts and other skin issues.

FN TIP: Use it as a toner to immediately cleanse, soothe, and hydrate your skin prior to putting on makeup.

V&M Emu Oil

On sale at P1,096, V&M Naturals


This cult-favorite has been reviewed to give close to miraculous results—from reducing acne issues to relief from psoriasis and eczema. It’s known to deeply penetrate your skin for healing and rejuvenation, all the while keeping moisture locked in.

FN TIP: Apply this to your scars and keloids (or even just on your dark elbows and knees) and wait for your skin to even out.

Fresh Rose Face Mask

P1,464/30ml, Sephora

While the scent of roses may be a bit overpowering, this product delivers instant results. Apply this cooling gel mask after cleansing your face and leave it on for five to 10 minutes. After rinsing, you’ll immediately feel your skin get softer and plumper.
