What are 3 beauty products that you can't live without?

Hola! It's a very rainy Thursday afternoon and before I go on my so-called "siesta" and spend time with my little ones (aka P-nut the Chihuahua and Micki the Shih Tzu), I'd like to share with you some of the things that I cannot live without.

First of all, it was hard to narrow it down to just three items. We all know that to prettify ourselves we definitely need more than 3 products. If you can, however, get away with just 3 then I assume you are one of the lucky few who possess flawless skin. And for that fact, I am totally envious!

1. Avon Moisture Therapy Oatmeal Lotion - Php 330

old packaging vs the new sleek packaging
This has been my HG body lotion for the past 6 years or so. It's very light and easy to spread and you can easily wear your jeans or clothes immediately after application. Don't you just hate lotions that make you feel "coated"? In our schizo weather, I prefer water-based lotions that are easily absorbed by the skin, and this baby is a sure winner. I hoard this whenever I can and I am happy to have an Avon Lady who alerts me when this goes on sale so I can get it for only Php 189 each.

2. Mediherbs Soap Facial Skin Antiseptic - Php 29.75

Typical tomato soaps break me out, but this affordable drugstore find doesn't. It contains Tomato, Papaya and Cucumber extracts to tone, soften, whiten and hydrate skin. It is also enriched with Vitamin A & C to control oiliness. I've been religiously using this for both my face and body for almost 2 years. This is available in the beauty section (not grocery) of Landmark Trinoma only.

3. Oil control sheets

This is something I've always had in my purse or bag. Since high school I've relied on oil control sheets to freshen up in between classes or meetings. Any brand does the trick, but I've been using my TBS Nature's Minerals Blotting Tissues as of late.

  2. Hi Tracy! Yeah, I don't see it in groceries in other malls e. Let me know how if you happen to grab a couple, I want to know if it'll work for you too. The ingredients are quite impressive too, no SLS, parabens or any other chemicals :)
