Beauty essentials that’ll make you look good and feel good
As we know, Christmas in the Philippines starts as early as September. Jose Mari Chan plays in the background while our moms and titas bring out tacky decors. Although this year’s Christmas may not be what we hoped for, gift-giving is still a tradition. It’s time to think of gifts and self-rewards for the tough year we’ve all faced! There’s still hope for us to rise from the ashes of sweatpants and comfort food.
Let’s be honest, the holidays are truly for retail therapy. In case you’re looking for ideas, we’ve got a list of items worth splurging on:
Take a break from ponytails and bunheads
Add these gems to your Christmas wish list or keep it in mind as a gift idea. These hair tools are coated with mirror titanium, which results in fast and even styling without damaging your hair.
Switch up your daily hair routine from sleek and straight to voluminous and wavy with the VS Magic Shine Iconic Super Steam Straightener and the VS Magic Shine 38mm Curling Iron. Both tools give you salon perfect locks with ease. Maybe it’s time to let your hair down!
Glowy skin comes from within
The key to drinking eight glasses a day is to keep a water bottle by your side at all times. BKR’s adorable bottles have a small opening for sipping without spillage. Its secure seal ensures absolute convenience for rigorous activities.

Keep your brows filled and tamed with the double-sided Brow Shaper, too. Doing your brows before a Zoom call has never been this easy! It’s definitely an item worth adding to your makeup kit.
Indulge in natural luxury
Amp up your full body routine with nourishing products that provide deep moisture day and night. NUXE’s products are purposely formulated to meet pharmaceutical standards with botanical ingredients to leave you feeling and looking your best during quarantine.
NUXE’s Huile Prodigieuse Beauty Dry Oil is a multipurpose non-sticky product that works for both skin and hair! Pair this item with the Rêve de Miel Lip Balm and you’ve got the perfect nightstand duo.
Unleash the superhero in you with Marvel x Maybelline
Challenging times call for us to unleash the superhero within. As we continue to fight the good fight, sometimes we need that extra boost to keep us going. It can take many forms, but this month’s source of upper is the Marvel x Maybelline collab. The limited edition collection assembles some of the Marvel franchise’s most iconic characters and combines that with some of Maybelline’s best-loved products: the Superstay Matte Ink and Instant Age Rewind Eraser.
Each piece from the collection comes in a silver box, featuring the emblems of superhero favorites, like Spider Man, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther and Black Widow. Meanwhile, the saturated shades from the Superstay Matte Ink line include Pioneer, Ruler, Lover, Versatile and Groundbreaker. Their super qualities? Mask-proof, ultra-pigmented and long-wearing. Instant Age Rewind Eraser easily becomes our weapon of choice to fight tired and dull-looking skin thanks to its star ingredient, Haloxyl. Treat and conceal dark circles and fine lines with its easy-to-use applicator.
The Marvel x Maybelline collection retails for P299 for the Superstay Matte Ink and P399 for the Instant Age Rewind Eraser. Visit Maybelline’s official store on Shopee, “Add to Cart” and check out through this link.
