Red Dimaandal, Managing Editor
Red’s Pick: Oxecure Blackhead Clearing BHA PHA Toner (originally P499, now P265.67)
“I’ve tried a handful of top-rated toners spanning a range of budgets and skin concerns, but this affordably-priced toner is one of the best there is. This alcohol-free product gets the job done with exfoliating—and hydrating—salicylic acid that banishes dead skin cells and minimizes the appearance of pores.”
Grace Libero-Cruz, People Editor
Grace’s Pick: Korean Chic Elegant Lapel Tweed Small Suit Jacket + High Waist Chic Button Skirt Suit (originally P589, now P565.44)
“This is my current vibe in fashion: Korean minimalism and coordinates. I love how cool and chic this ensemble looks. The textured look of the fabric adds to the visual depth to contrast its streamlined silhouette. This is perfect for women on-the-go who don't want to overthink their outfits yet are still able to step out in style. I can't wait to shop for this and wear it to one of the holiday parties I plan to attend.”
Kate Paras, Beauty & Wellness Editor
Kate’s Pick: Sunnies Face Fluffmatte Lipstick (originally P445, now P294)
"Sunnies Face Fluffmatte, in my opinion, is a must in every woman's makeup kit. It's not multi-awarded here and abroad for nothing. At such a pocket-friendly price, you get to enjoy a wide array of shades in a finish that's unbeatable. Lightweight, matte minus the drying effect, and highly pigmented with every swipe—what's not to love?"
Justin Convento, Culture Editor
Justin’s Pick: Issy & Co. Solar Balm SPF 30 PA+++ in Playdate - Glow Finish (originally P349, now P244)
“Ever since the launch of Issy’s solar balms, I’ve been obsessed! It might just be my favorite Issy product, next to the Active Skin Tint. I tend to have dry lips and I always need a bit of color to feel confident in my beauty look, even when I’m going for the no-makeup effect. The solar balms, in both Glow and Natural finishes, are just the perfect thing for a pretty pout any time of the day. I have all the colors but I particularly love Playdate right now—which is pink—and feels so lightweight and comfortable on my lips.”
Anna Rosete, Living Editor
Anna’s Pick: Sunya 1 Summer Folds Issey Miyake Top in Pink (originally P1604, now P1509.74)
“For those on a budget, this homage to Issey Miyake will make a pretty addition to their holiday wardrobe. In faint petal pink, it looks fresh and easy on the eyes. The pretty silhouette is quite unique, reminiscent of the Filipino terno.”
Raff Colmenar, Art Director
Raff’s Pick: Under Armour Unisex Shoes/Noco/Nodim Utility Bag (originally P1195, now P837)
“I’ve been eyeing this shoe bag from Under Armour for quite a while now. I’m traveling in a few weeks and this is perfect to store my shoes in!”
Carla Buyo, Fashion Assistant
Carla’s Pick: Cider Satin Ruched Cut Slit Midi Dress (originally P1800, now P1350)
“No matter the occasion or season, there are always plenty of opportunities to wear a dress. This satin ruched midi dress from Cider ticks all our boxes for the perfect party dress, from the length, the cut-out detail, to the muted sage green color! Think brunches or sunset parties accompanied by cocktails!”
