Skincare has become my favorite way to destress after a long, tiring day at school or work. I’ve seen a lot of holy grail skincare products that I’ve really wanted to try; but as a broke college student, I obviously can’t afford most of them. Luckily, I found a homegrown brand that offers high quality and effective skincare products without breaking the bank!
Hello Gorgeous! by Skinline has a wide variety of skincare and makeup products that come in cute, dainty packaging. They started in 1998 as a day spa in Hagonoy, Bulacan and slowly ventured into repackaging and selling the products they used in their clinics, so that their customers could have the luxury of using the skincare products in the comfort of their homes.
So far, they have stores in SM North Edsa, SM Manila, SM Tuguegarao, and Greenhills; but they’ll be opening in U.P. Town Center, Ayala Vertis North, Ayala Feliz, SM City Pampanga, and SM Seaside City Cebu soon, too! For those of you who don’t have the time to shop on-ground, they also sell online! At present, they remain to be one of the successful homegrown skincare brands that cater to millennials.
Oatmeal Scrub (P300)
This Oatmeal Scrub can be used to moisturize any part of your body and is great for sensitive skin. The scent of the scrub is sweet and relaxing (though honestly, it will make you want to eat it, too!)
Purifying Facial Mask and Detox Facial Mask (P300)
They also have facial masks that you can easily put on and wash of once they dry! Their Facial Mask Detox has active charcoal that removes excess oil, minimizes pores, and, as the name suggests, detoxifies your skin by magnetizing your whiteheads and blackheads.
The Facial Mask Purifying dries up acne and removes acne scars, making it perfect for oily skin. Both of these masks are organic, don’t have a strong smell, and stay true to their promised claims. These facial masks work like a charm, and are truly an affordable miracle inside a tub!
Unicorn Elixir in 30ml (P700) or 15ml (P380)
Who doesn’t love unicorns? The Unicorn Elixir is magical with its power to nourish and brighten your skin, and clear up pimples. It’s a serum you can use for your face, hair, and even your nails! It can also be used as a primer since the skin can easily absorb it. The serum has a calming lavender scent, too, making it the perfect night moisturizer. This is truly a must-have with its versatility, effectivity, and affordability!
Silly Foaming Wash (P380)
Your skin will feel fresh and clean after a long day with the Silly Foaming Wash. It comes with a soft brush that’s shaped like a heart to make sure you’re able to scrub the dirt off of your face. This does a great job at cleaning every inch of your face and has a great mild scent. It also brightens your skin, giving you that youthful glow! xxx
These makeup products from Hello Gorgeous! are perfect for everyone, even for skincare beginners like me! They are highly affordable, so you’ll definitely get more than your money’s worth. Here are some products that can help you look on fleek without spending too much:
Mermaid Cult Eyeshadow Palette in Off the Shore (P1,350)
To say that their palettes are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G is an understatement. Their Mermaid Cult Eyeshadow Palette has beautiful, blendable colors that are highly pigmented. It comes in two variants: Off the Shore (see photo above) and Under the Sea. All the shades have a great color payoff, including the light shades and shimmer shades, and have no significant fallout. This is perfect for creating neutral to glam looks! The cute mermaid holographic packaging is definitely a huge plus, too!
Unicorn Cult Contouring Palette in Opals (P850)
You can easily achieve a chiseled look with the help of their Unicorn Cult Contouring Palette, which comes in two variants, as well: Opals (see photo above) and Karat. The palette has a contour and highlight cream, and a powder blush and strobe. It is blendable and light on the skin, and is perfect for both a subtle and “on fleek” contour since it is buildable. It comes in a cute holographic diamond packaging, which is truly eye-catching!
Disco Palette (P580)
Pop that highlight with their Disco Palette! The palette has 6 big pans of highlight that are highly pigmented. It is blendable and can also be used as shimmer eyeshadow. It comes in a holographic packaging to embody its name, too: disco!
Unicorn Tears in Moonlight (left) and Starlight (right) (P250)
If you want a blinding highlight, the Unicorn Tears can do that for you! With this highlighter, a little definitely goes a long way. It comes in two colors: Starlight and Moonlight. All you need is one little dot, blend it with your finger, and you’ll be glowing in no time!
Wow! Brows Stamp in Soft Brown (left) (P380) and Wow! Brows Cushion in Brown (right) (P380)
Kilay is life! The Wow! Brows Cushion is a two-toned cushion that you can combine to get that perfect shade. It comes in two colors: Brown and Gray. It’s perfect for travel and retouching on-the-go since it has a big mirror and a bendable brush. You can achieve natural looking brows with this product with ease.
On the other hand, the Wow! Brows Stamp basically gives you that perfect brow shape with the use of the stamp. It comes in three colors: light brown, soft brown, and gray. This product is relatively new to the eyebrow product game, but works perfectly for those who have sparse or thin eyebrows because it can instantly give you brows that are on fleek!
Velveteen Liquid Lipstick in Fleek (back) and Vibes (front)(P350)
Pucker up! The Velveteen Liquid Lipstick will last the whole day with its everything-proof formula. It comes in different shades that are smooth, creamy, lightweight, and non-drying with a great color payoff. This is the perfect everyday lippie!
