10 New Picks for Your Shopping List This August
All the stuff to add to cart!
(SPOT.ph) It’s already August and—surprise—we’re still under what seems like a never-ending quarantine. If you’re a lot like us, your coping mechanism is probably spending a lot of time adding things to your virtual cart and thinking of what to buy next. In case you’re looking for fresh finds to shop, then you’ve come to the right place.
Check out some of our favorite finds for the month of August:
Instax Mini 11 (P4,299) from Fujifilm
The Instax Mini 11 Series is the successor of Fujifilm’s best-selling Mini 9 instant film cameras. The latest model is a less chunky, more compact version of its predecessor and has new features that make taking photos easier. For one, the shutter speed now adjusts automatically depending on the lighting conditions, so you can be sure all the photos you take are properly exposed. That also means less film will be wasted. The best part is that it comes in soft pastel hues that'll instantly make you want to hit "Add to Cart!"
Top of The Morning Daytime Skincare Kit (P1,299) from Bloom & Topiary
These stressful times can really take a toll on your skin. If you’ve been searching for products that can help rejuvenate your skin, local skincare brand Bloom & Topiary has a four-step daytime skincare kit that’s full of only the good stuff. The travel-sized kit includes a cleanser, serum, eye cream, and moisturizer all made with natural ingredients. The cleanser, for example, is made with oat, almond, fruit vitamin AHA, aloe vera, and rosemary which all work together to reveal a smoother, brighter, and blemish-free complexion. We love how the bottles come with labels that list all the ingredients, so you know exactly what’s going on your skin. Plus points for the detailed instructions on how to use each product!
Birth of Venus Soy Candles (P880) from Good Design Co.
Looking for accent pieces for your space? Good Design Co. has a candle design inspired by the famous painting "The Birth of Venus" by Sandro Botticelli, one of the most famous paintings at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Each handmade candle is made with 100% soy wax and comes in a selection of soft pastel colors. They have a mild vanilla scent, but you can also get it unscented. The candles feature a unique slanted top, which is a design that's exclusive to the brand, meaning you won't be able to find the exact candle design anywhere else. Each candle is priced at P880. The candles make for a great addition to your space or a cool gift idea!
Love Beauty and Planet, Clean Oceans Edition body wash (P290/400ml)
For this year’s World Oceans Day, Love Beauty and Planet created a limited-edition line that’ll remind you of the sea. Infused with sea salt and bergamot, the Clean Oceans Edition uses 100% recycled ocean-bound plastic. Love Beauty and Planet also partnered with the Surfrider Foundation to sponsor beach clean-ups and raise U.S. $250,000 for protecting Earth’s oceans.
Confetti Cold Cup (P195) from Starbucks
In case you missed it, Starbucks came out with a brand-new reusable cup: the Confetti Cold Cup! It looks like a party in cup form—it's speckled with tiny, confetti-shaped sprinkles and an eye-catching multi-colored straw that'll add some life to any beverage. Plus, the confetti around the cup changes colors when a cold drink is poured into the cup! Cool, right? (No pun intended.) The Confetti Cold Cup is priced at P195, so you can buy one for your friends and family without breaking the bank.
Available at Starbucks stores.
Boobie Pots (P600) from Plant Porn
Obsessed with bold home accents? Plant Porn is home to a wide selection of boobie pots (yup, as in, pots with boobs) that’ll add some character to your space. They come in a variety of skin tones and some even have tan lines! They also have butt pots that are too cute for words.

Foldable Tote Large (P1,395) from Shupatto
Japanese brand Shupatto creates totes and bags in various sizes made from water-resistant fabric so you won't have to worry about getting it wet. When not in use, the bags can be collapsed into a strap that you can roll for easy storage. They’re perfect for running errands!
MASQ Magic Color-Changing Face Masks (P650/each) from The MASQ Collection
The MASQ Collection just released color-changing face masks that reveal your favorite Disney villains when you breathe! Take your pick from four Disney villains: Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Evil Queen from Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, Chesire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, and Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians. The masks passed four crucial safety tests like the particle suction test, light transmission test, rapid blow test, and water-resistant test. Each mask features a quad-layer construction, an adjustable nose bridge and chin cup for a snug fit, and adjustable soft-flex straps for comfortable wear. Because of the structure of the masks, the inner fabric won't stick and rub against your skin, giving you more breathing space. This means lower chances of getting maskne, too! Each mask comes with a pouch and 10 PureMasq Water-Repellent filters which you can insert inside the filter pocket for added protection.

You can even do quick five-minute workouts using the watch! The smartwatch also has an always-on heart-rate monitoring so you can keep track of your heart rate even when you're resting.
