From your face to your bikini line, First Aid Beauty has products to soothe your skin
From Supergoop’s array of sun care protection to Olaplex’s hardworking haircare, we were introduced to a number of Sephora-fave brands in the Philippines in 2023.

She writes, “I have been using this product for around three to four years now, and I can't even begin to explain the improvements I've seen in my eczema since using this. I've had severe eczema since I was a child and have tried every lotion and cream on the market with no lasting results. Since switching to this product, I have gone from severe to just mild eczema and it has truly changed my life. It's better than the dermatologist-prescribed steroid creams I used to use!
