With rainy days to come, it's time to elevate our kits and bathroom cabinets a little bit with a range of new, innovative beauty products that will keep us feeling and looking fresh and detoxed.
This month, PhilSTAR L!fe discovered an array of beauty, wellness, and personal care items including a texture-blurring lipstick, gummy vitamins, and detoxifying mouthwash that are too intriguing not to try. So go on, revel in the new products available right now by reading our list below.
If you've long been a Laura Mercier fan, then you might be familiar with their Secret Camouflage concealer that came in a compact palette. This time, the brand improved and simplified the iconic product into a stick duo concealer. The new Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer Duo (P1,850) contains Brightening Pearls and Lotus Flower Extract to blur imperfections and brighten the under eyes.
We're always on the lookout for new Maybelline releases, and this latest one became an instant hit for us. The new Maybelline Color Sensational Ultimatte (P299) lipsticks have everything we're looking for in a matte lipstick: lightweight, texture-blurring, intense, and pocket-friendly! What we love about this range is that it has that "smooth-like-butter texture" that even the ladies from ITZY, Maybelline’s newest Global Spokesmodels, can't resist.
When it comes to body care, why spend more when you can have the same quality at affordable prices? At Avon Care, trust that you can get that and more. Their Avon Care Antibacterial Hand and Body Lotion not only provides moisture, but also protection from germs (a must-have these days). They also have Avon Care Hand and Body Lotions which are formulated with Vitamin E and active natural ingredients that address specific skin benefits such as Milk to hydrate, Avocado Oil to restore, Lavender to relax, Royal Jelly to soothe, and Oatmeal for sensitive skin. And all your gentle baby care needs like Avon Care Baby Gentle Wash & Shampoo.
Detox for our bodies is nothing new, but have you tried detoxing your mouth? Listerine aims to teach Filipinos good oral hygiene—which is to brush, floss, and rinse—through their newest limited-edition products: Listerine Pomelo & Passionfruit and Listerine Aloe & Cucumber. These new flavors will keep your mouth fresh and clean without giving you that stinging feeling. Both flavors come in two sizes at 250ml for P115 and 500ml for P209.
Thai oral care brand Sparkle is now in the Philippines. By providing "thoughtfully formulated healthy whitening products," Sparkle will change the way you choose your oral care staples. From healthier alternatives like Micro White Silica, Xylitol, Calcium, and Hydroxyapatite (HAp), you're sure to get amazing results and advanced care.
Currently, they have the SPARKLE White Dental Floss (P149), SPARKLE White Toothpaste (starts at P135), SPARKLE Ionic Toothbrush (P399), and SPARKLE Fresh & Cool Mouthwash (P279).
Kylie Jenner's favorite vitamin gummy supplements have just landed in the Philippines! SugarBearHair products are clinically formulated with vegan ingredients and are flavored with sweet natural berries that will crave you for more!
SugarBearHair comes in three variants: Hair Vitamins (P1,955) for healthier and stronger hair, Women's Multi (P1,795) for overall health (it has Omega-3, Vitamins B-12, C, D-2, E and more!), and SugarBear Sleep (P1,795) for good sleep. These gummies are free from gelatin, dairy, and gluten, and have no unfavorable side effects nor contain hormones—but of course, ask your doctor first before trying it.
Juicing to detox may seem a little intimidating. For one, you can only eat certain types of food in little portions. And two, you're required to take it for days. But with Trizie, a clean wellness brand from Thailand, you can get faster and cleaner results without having to compromise what you eat!
Their best-selling flavor (which got sold out in six hours), Trizie Grape (P2,495/10-day pack), is now back in stock. It contains all the natural fibers from grape fruit—Psyllium Husk, Oil Palm Fiber, Oat Fiber, and Apple Fiber—to speed up your metabolisim and restore your gut's health, and antioxidants and fat-burners like L-Carnitine, Broccoli, Grapeseed Extract, and Zinc Amino Chelate.
