There are some things girls simply can't deal with—like a bad face day. So how, you may ask, do Manila's prettiest stay looking "fresh" 24/7? We asked some of our favorite faces what beauty staples they could never live without. Their answers, below!
La Mer, Soft Gel Cream, P7550, Rustan's
"Honestly, since I was younger I would save my money and buy La Mer soft gel cream cause I think it's worth the investment. My skin is supple and hydrated." — Isabelle Daza, Actress
Tony & Guy, Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray, P995, Watson's
"If you've subjected your hair to too much torture (i.e. daily ironing, monthly color jobs, digi perming), it's best to give your hair a month's worth of rest. If you're craving for texturized, beachy waves, you can get the same results minus the damaging effects of heat and chemical processes by using a sea salt spray which grants natural-looking and long-lasting waves. To use, simply spray onto damp hair, scrunch with your fingers, and when hair naturally dries, it'll have that effortless Alexa Chung mane we all aspire to have. I love TONI & GUY's Casual: Sea Salt Texturising Spray." — Agoo Bengzon, Beauty Editor
Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate, P3730, tomford.com
"Washing your face every night without fail! Sunscreen, Clarins beauty flash balm and Tom Ford’s Shade and Illuminate [are my must-haves]." — Tricia Centenera-Valenciano, TV host/Blogger
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre, P795, calyxta.com
"I love Embryolisse moisturizer. It doesn't get greasy at all and it definitely does the job! I've tried a lot of moisturizers but nothing does the trick like this one." — Kelsey Merritt, Model
Glossier, Mega Greens Galaxy Pack Moisturizing Mask, P1025, glossier.com
"I swear by putting on BB creams with SPF on my face every morning and moisturizing my face with hydrating masks at night. I believe it's best to start a simple anti-aging skin care regimen early on. My current favorite products are Glossier's Mega Greens Galaxy mask and Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair." — Melissa Gatchalian, Blogger
Shu Uemura Lightbulb Foundation, P2550, Power Plant
"I swear by Shu Uemura's Tsuya skin. It hydrates my skin and makes it dewy and supple before I apply makeup. Also love their lightbulb foundation because it's the perfect shade for Asian skin, it's also light and doesn't cake. I think we should take care of what we eat. Our skin really benefits from healthy eating." — Max Collins, Actress
