10 Best-Selling Local Beauty Products We Love
A homegrown makeup and skincare stash made just for you
(SPOT.ph) We're often fixated on international brands releasing new lipstick collections or eye shadow palettes that are almost impossible to get your hands on. This time, we're putting the spotlight on local beauty brands (though one of them makes household items, too) that have changed the beauty game with releases that emerged as beauty lovers' favorites. We round up some of the most well-loved products from local beauty brands that deserve a spot in your kikay kit.
It's Awesome BB Cream (P499) from Pink Sugar
This multi-functional BB cream is formulated with green tea extracts, aloe vera, and antioxidants that help nourish the skin while giving a flawless medium to full coverage and a matte finish—it works well with oily skin, too! Plus, it has SPF25 for added sun protection.
Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies (P599/each) from Happy Skin

Poudre Extraordinaire SPF30 in Vanilla Creme (P799) from Snoe
One of Snoe's best-selling products is their finishing powder. They claim it's more than just makeup as it contains a combination of natural sunscreens for SPF30, plus it's infused with Acai berry, a rare fruit that contains antioxidants, that protect the skin from free radicals, smoothens wrinkles, and improves overall skin health. It works well with oily skin, too, as its mineral powders absorb excess oil without drying the skin.

The case has a built-in mirror, too!
Sunflower Beauty Oil (P149.75) from Human Nature
So Human Nature isn't exactly just a makeup brand, but their "cult classic," the Sunflower Beauty Oil, is a definite must-have. It's rich in moisturizing agents and vitamins A, D, and E which help keep your skin as healthy as possible. It's considered a top-to-toe beauty solution because it promises to lighten the undereye area, pimple marks, stretch marks, underarms, fine lines, and scars while acting as an overall body moisturizer that also nourishes the scalp and softens soles, knees, and elbows.
