SERUM – APOTHEKE NIACINAMIDE 10% (PHP 259.00/30 ML)
This locally hyped serum is formulated Vitamin B3 in a bed of aloe vera extract (Hydrolat), aloe vera gel (mucilaginous part) , and sea weed extract as a natural binder.

MOISTURIZER – FRESH SKINLAB JEJU ALOE ICE ALOE SOOTHING GEL LOTION (PHP 199.00)
Here is another locally raved product ever since Anne Clutz featured this in one of her vlogs. This one is great for sensitive skin and enlarged pores.

SUNSCREEN – iWHITE KOREA WHITENING VITA FACIAL CREAM (PHP 189.00)
This one’s a multi-tasker! It contains mulberry extract that keeps your skin bright while protecting it from the sun because of its SPF15! You get a makeup base, tone up cream and sunscreen in one tube!
