If you’re a makeup addict, you know how hard it can be to get your favorite products and brands here in the Philippines. Well, we’ve found a place that carries some of the most raved brands and cult favorites like The Ordinary, Glossier, Glow Recipe, Morphe, Tarte, Charlotte Tilbury, CeraVe, Farm to Folk, and Wheyl Nutrition! Say hello to Hermosa Beauty.
Hermosa Beauty started as a passion project to make it easier and more convenient for every Filipina to get up-to-date products and brands in the world of beauty and lifestyle. They take pride in curating their products to give everyone the best shopping experience possible.
This pandemic gave them an unexpected boost in sales because people learned to take better care of themselves while in quarantine. Aside from more people investing in self-care, more people are also opting to shop online because of safety and convenience. I got a box of beauty products from Hermosa Beauty myself, and here’s what was inside:
Glossier’s Cloud Paint is a huge favorite because it is so easy to work with and layer. Just dab it onto your cheeks and tap to get the blush you desire.
Morphe’s 9V Vintage Rose Artistry Palette is usually so hard to get. It is almost always sold out on the Morphe website itself, so it was a joy to know Hermosa Beauty has it!
Need something for your brows? Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Ombré Brow Kit is a limited edition set that features three brow must-haves so your brows will always be on fleek!
For your wound treatment needs, Lucas‘ Papaw Ointment is a godsend. It is commonly used to treat minor wounds and helps heal and soothe inflamed, chapped, or broken skin. You can use it for sunburns, too.
If you tend to get pimples every now and then, the COSRX Acne Pimple Patch is a great healer and comes in three different sizes to spot-correct those pesky little buggers.
Phina’s Little Factory Love Moisturizing Soap has a cult following for a reason. Their soaps are made with a special blend that will make your skin feel and look great!
Of course, skincare isn’t just about what you put on it, but also about what you consume. HUM Nutrition’s Collagen Pop + Vitamin C Dissolvable Tablets taste great and can help improve the look of your skin – win-win!
It also helps if you take care of yourself as you sleep. To keep your lips soft, smooth, and hydrated, put on the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask overnight. Your jowa will thank you for it. 😉
Not a lot of people use hydrating sprays, but with Philippine pollution the way it is, I’d highly urge you to. Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater will refresh and rehydrate your skin, and you can even use it on your hair if it’s looking and feeling a little dry.
If you have a lot of skin blemishes, The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% can help reduce their appearance.
Want to hide your pores and fine lines? The Hylamide HA Blur Surface Finisher works like magic, making your face end up like you’ve been retouched on Photoshop.
Conversely, if you simply want to take better care of your skin, the Versed Skincare Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum will work to protect, hydrate, brighten and firm your skin while we’re stuck in quarantine.
And now for the amazing skincare accessories! If you have sensitive skin, this Skinologist Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber would be perfect for you as it can gently exfoliate and clean your face to remove blackheads and improve the appearance of acne.
If you find yourself stressed out every now and then, this simple Made Beauty Rose Quartz Facial Roller will change your life! It is super effective at relaxing your entire being – trust me. Plus, it’s made with real rose quartz!
If you don’t know what to get your favorite girls, Hermosa Beauty also has gift cards available so they can shop for whatever they want from the comfort of their own homes. They also have a free rewards program on the site where you can earn points whenever you shop, and redeem them for rewards afterward. Additionally, they offer free shipping nationwide for orders worth Php2,000 and above.
Without a doubt, Hermosa Beauty will soon be the go-to beauty and lifestyle destination because of their wide array of categories: makeup, skincare, hair, bath and body, health and wellness, and even pantry staples – they’ve got it! You can now buy your most-wanted cosmetics, must-have skincare products, and superfoods all in one place. Check them out today!
