You’re welcome! As a treat for all of you this Tuesday afternoon, I dug through various online beauty sites to see what they had on sale. There were a lot to choose from, but for the purpose of this list, I wanted to focus on skincare. Mainly because everyone has been more cautious about how they treat their face. To my surprise, I found many products under P1,000 ranging from cleansers toners and serums. For the ladies who want to treat their skin right but are on a budget, this is for you.
Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask
Price: From P 1,595 to P957
Get rid of dry skin with this mask. It has Clary Sage, which doesn’t just provide hydration but also helps “increase skin’s ability to retain moisture.” Your face will be back to being soft and supple in no time. Available on Sephora PH.
Neutriherbs Retinol Serum + Vitamin E
Price: From P798 to P599
Treat your acne-prone skin with a vitamin-enriched skin booster. Apply three to five drops of this serum on your face after cleansing and toning. Remember to pat in the product instead of rubbing it in. It will unclog your pores, reduce blemishes, and improve the overall texture of your skin. Available on Beauty MNL.
CosRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
Price: From P915 to P690
Repairing moisture problems just on the surface isn’t enough. This essence is made with 96 percent snail mucin extract, this “penetrates deep into [the skin’s] layers, repairing and improving elasticity from within.” Targeting the problem from the source? Yes please! Available on Althea.
23.5N Bamboo Ultra Hydrating toner

If you go through cleanser quick, garb two of these bottles. With 24K gold, it will help to improve the vitality and elasticity of your skin. And the gold just makes it so extra that you’ll want to use it every day. Available online.
