Glowing up starts with your skin
The skincare junkie in us has always wondered what lies beneath the iconic brown bottle of Estee's Lauder’s Night Repair Multi-Recovery Serum—and it didn’t disappoint. The serum contains hyaluronic acid and Bifida ferment which makes it a super-charger that firms and smoothens your skin. It’s the perfect serum after cleansing which makes you look fresh and well-rested throughout the day.
Just to be clear, the Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion is not a toner. It contains active ingredients that make your skin hydrated and look more youthful. Estee Lauder’s micro-essence delivers satisfying results for every skin type which makes the investment worth it.
Luxury skincare brand La Mer has always been an intimidating brand for skincare newbies, but La Mer Treatment Lotion can be your skin’s newest bestie. The transparent lotion contains their signature “Miracle Broth” which feels like a herbal, liquid clay mask before going to bed.
The iconic Moisturizing Cream is probably La Mer and one of LazMall’s highly-coveted products with a cult following over the years. The OG luxury moisturizer has a gooey consistency that transforms into a silky consistency as soon as it goes to your skin. Pro tip: Get a small amount of product so it wouldn’t feel heavy on your skin before your makeup.
There’s something worth admiring about minimalist products that get the job done extremely well—and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream is one of them.
It has a rich, creamy formula that glides on your skin without feeling icky. The product is so well-made that you can’t help but apply the leftover product on your body. It contains hydrating and nourishing properties that rescue your skin from dryness and acne.
In a tropical country like the Philippines, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream is your skin’s newest companion. Compared to the ultra-facial cream, it’s a go-to skincare essential for people with oily skin.
The light, cream-gel moisturizer delivers a burst of hydration on your skin without feeling too goopy. This refreshing product feels like giving your skin a drink from a tall, icy-cold glass of water on a hot summer day.
Glowing up is about elevating your look
On the hunt for a cute sleeveless top? The DNEMNLPH Lena Halter Top is an affordable sleeveless top that looks cute paired with a pair of shorts, a denim skirt, or oversized jeans. If you’re worried about the top’s size, DNEMNLPH’s LazMall page offers a universal size guide to check if it’s a perfect fit.
A bodysuit is a versatile outfit—it flatters your figure and provides a seamless tucked-in look that’s perfect for styling. Perhaps, the DNEMNLPH sleeveless bodysuit can get you into the bodysuit train. It comes in beautiful pastel shades and it hugs your curves without being too uncomfortable.
You can never have too many dresses. DNEMNLPH Heather Backless Dress is a feminine dress that’s perfect for a hot date or if you just want to look cute. It even looks like something a K-pop idol would wear in a music video.
Who remembers Shin Minah’s stylish handbags in the feel-good K-drama Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha? Channel your inner Yoon Hyejin with the Forever Young Rebel Women Handbag. This classy handbag adds a feminine touch to your outfits without taking the focus away from your OOTD.
If you’re looking for a cuter handbag, the Forever Young Mini Crossbody Bag is your new bag bestie. This round bag is a cute accessory to your outfit. Plus, it holds your important valuables without looking too clunky.
Who says you can’t carry your valid IDs, vaccination card, and bank cards in style? The Forever Young Multi-Card Clutch carries your important valuables in style that’s perfect for trips to government offices or any destination that requires a vax card.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star CX is all about comfort, style, and versatility. Don’t be fooled by its neon orange sole since it adds the right amount of edge your outfit needs.
Achieving the best version of yourself is a piece of cake with the right essentials to keep you company. Start your glow-up journey by grabbing these fashion and beauty finds that are worth the investment not only for your body but also for your soul. You're welcome!
