I grew up being constantly told of the importance of caring for one’s skin and to be honest I did not exactly see its vitality not until I got older (and how hoarding skin care products could actually equate to the joy of purchasing new books on my part!). With my busy schedule, I barely have time to research and go in-depth of the recommended and best products that I could use – the ones that would be compatible with my skin type AND not result to harsh skin reactions when applied (you see, I’m allergic to many things.)

The convenience of online shopping saves some time and hassle for busy bee’s like me to perform many simultaneous tasks and shopping is one of them. Beauty MNL grants convenience for beauty junkies to purchase their favorite products and brands from the comfort of wherever they are at. It’s fast, hassle-free and caters perfectly to the lifestyle of a modern Filipina. It’s basically an online store that sells a huge variety of brands and beauty products for Filipinas who want to feel good in their skin and enhance their beauty.

Beauty MNL is divided and bookmarked under different sections so you can easily navigate and identify the products you’re looking for. As for me, skin care was something I would gladly invest in so my shopping cart’s full of skin care products.

SKIN GENIE PIT PERFECT UNDERARM WHITENING CREAM

Dark armpits are usually caused by deodorant usage, antiperspirants and buildup of dead skin cells. Instead of skipping the deo (think of hygiene, too!), underarm whitening creams would lighten them pits. I apply a pea sized amount of the Pit Perfect Underarm Whitening Cream when I wash up before turning in. I’ve seen results so far, and it’s good. I also like how it doesn’t feel stingy and how the light fragrance lasts even when I wake up. it moisturizes, too. Ysabel recommends!

SKIN GENIE ANTI EYE-GING

I’m a natural night owl so I stay up late all the time leaving dark unwanted circles on my face when morning comes. Other than getting more hours of sleep, Skin Genie’s Anti Eye-ging alleviates the remedy of these dark unwanted circles. It’s on a roller, so an ample amount is spread evenly on your face when you use the product. Other than the Skin Genie Anti-Eyeging doing its wonder, I’m trying my best to fix my sleeping patterns. But this product? Ysabel recommends!

HUMAN NATURE 100% NATURAL SUNFLOWER BEAUTY OIL

My skin type is a combo of oily and dry but when it comes to my neck down to my feet, it’s dry.  It’s unscented and yes, well, greasy (naturally). The Human Nature 100% Natural Sunflower Oil surely moisturized my skin as I apply it immediately after showering to lock in the moisture. This product falls under the ‘save’ category when it comes to skin care but you get more than what you pay for. It solves a lot of skin remedies too other than dryness, so this one’s an all around product and definitely tops my recommended list.

BATH JUNKIES SUN KISSED SUNBLOCK GEL SPF 30

My mom often emphasized how important sunblock was. Even if I wouldn’t be basking under the harmful rays of the sun or waddling in the waters, she said that it was still important to apply sunblock since it protects your face during the day. I wanted a product that was non-greasy; not the type that I’d feel like I’ll be swimming, so I’m happy with the texture of the Bath Junkies Sunblock Gel. It wasn’t sticky, the gel [texture] was just right and it wasn’t pudgy in either. Also, a dermatologist once told me that the SPF number shouldn’t be too high nor too low to protect your skin properly, so SPF 30 was a perfect. Ysabel recommends, too!

BEAUTY BAKERY ROSE GEL DEWY MIST

I’m not the type that goes all out on makeup on a daily basis – foundation, powder, made up eyebrows a little contour and lipstick will do me fine already. But I realized how a setting spray can keep it all together for the day. This newly released product, the Beauty Bakery Rose Gel Dewy Mist is perfect since not only does the make upl last for the day but it also smells good. I don’t exactly spray products on my face that have scents (I use unscented products on my face to play safe) but I like how the fragrance of this one lasts, too. Get tabs on this product!

BEAUTY BAKERY CHARCOAL & CLAY SCRUB MASK

Love love looove face masks. I feel like a whole new person after slapping some product in my face and letting it sink in a bit. I wanted a charcoal product since I heard it cleanses well AND fights acne well (I’m very oily in the face area). I make sure to wash my face with warm water before applying then rinsing with cold water to open and tighten pores; respectively. I love the smell, I love the beaded texture that isn’t exactly smooth nor rough; it’s just right. My skin feels absolutely smooth after use. I love it. Greatly recommended!

BEAUTY BAKERY WITCH HAZEL PLUS TEA TREE ANTIOXIDANT FACIAL CREAM

Beauty Bakery recently launched this product and this facial cream adds to the small variety of selections Beauty Bakery has on Beauty MNL. This product served as a good moisturizer if you ask me, and what I also like about this is that the citrus invigorates and moisturizes well. I like how it completely locks in the moisture after washing my face, it really tightens pores as it indicates that it would. The moisturizing facial cream also serves its purpose of protecting your face from the sun with its SPF of 35, so it’s a two in one product that I love to use. I’d recommend! 😉

Product scares? Reviews are provided right there for Beauty MNL users, too!

The thing about online shopping is that we don’t we get to see actual product before buying it. Pictures may suffice but reviews could greatly help in choosing whether or not you want to buy a certain product. I believe that reviews are absolutely important when online shopping since you get to learn from the experiences of other beauty users regarding a certain product. The importance of product reviews also contributes to the ‘think before you click’ responsibility when it involves social media matters, haha.

Payment methods – Credit card, Paypal, bank deposit, cash on delivery – Beauty MNL accepts!

Transaction options are wide and well provided, so you don’t have to worry about creating accounts of different sorts if you want to purchase and make your transactions.

The product tabs help you in choosing and considering the product you like.

These three helped me choose the products indicated in this haul, where you get to read up on the basic bits, how to use the product and more about the brand.

Discounts on site because who doesn’t love good steals from good discounts?!

Enough said.

Delivery is fast, quick and efficient.

Did I mention how cute the packaging is?! I unfortunately don’t have a photo of mine but I have a thing for translucent packaging – the package is well covered of course, but I love how classy it looks with its logo.
