I can’t believe in three days we’re about to bid goodbye to September. This month went by so fast it felt like September is just a week long! Grabe, it’s not even Halloween but why am I feeling the BER months rush already?! 😜
Despite September being in a hurry, this month has given me a lot of opportunity to try new products. While some I’ve been using for the past months, others I just recently discovered yet have become easily a fave.
I’ve read a lot of good reviews about Trilogy products. This New Zealand brand has won numerous international awards since 2009! So I was happy to know it’s available here via @trilogyproducts.ph
I tried Trilogy Sensitive skincare range that’s dedicated for fragile, intolerant and easily irritated skin. This range worked well on my sensitive skin that’s currently experiencing breakouts due to hormonal imbalance. The set comes in travel size perfect if you want to try it out first or if it’s something you want to bring to your travels.
TRILOGY ROSEHIP OIL
Another product I got from @trilogyproducts.ph is the HG of Kate Middleton herself, Trilogy Rosehip Oil. Ever since I added this to my skin care routine, I’ve noticed my skin is less dry and gives that firmness I desperately need (because I’m not getting any younger). Despite my breakouts (curse you cystic acne!) my skin loves this! If you’re planning on adding Rosehip Oil to your skincare arsenal, get this Trilogy one from trilogyproducts.ph it’s certified organic. Choose between the regular one and the one with Antioxidant +.

ZENUTRIENTS PAPAYA SUNSCREEN SPF 50
Ever since I first encountered Zenutrients back in 2015 I’ve become a fan! This homegrown organic brand has a whole range of skin care and beauty products. You can check out some of them on my Don’t Panic It’s Organic post.
My current favorite sunscreen is from Zenutrients. It’s lightweight & non-sticky which is perfect for Manila’s hot & humid weather. Plus it doesn’t leave a white cast so I can apply foundation or powder right away. Best part aside from all the things I mentioned? For SPF 50, this 100ml bottle retails for Php 499, value for money!
Half a pump covers my entire face but on days when I needed that extra protection, I go full pump and apply the rest on my décolletage.
CLARINS WATER LIP STAIN
I’m all for makeup that gives me that natural look and Clarins Water Lip Stain gives me exactly this. This particular shade of red orange compliments my skin so well, it looks so natural on me. It’s made up of 70% water making it non-drying. One swipe is all I used on my lips and a dot each on my cheek instantly gave me that flushed look. Barely feels like I’m wearing anything so this is great for those who want a no fuss, daily makeup.
Sobrang fave ko na syaaaaa! Clarins Water Lip Stain is available at Clarins counter in Rustans Beauty Source.
HUMAN NATURE LIP SCRUB
My lips are often chapped and dry (partly blame my lack of water and my fondness for lipstick. I know lip scrubs can really help alleviate chapped lips but I haven’t found one I particularly like until I started using Human Nature Lip Scrub.
This natural exfoliant is sustainably sourced with fair trade Philippine raw sugar from Negros. A pea-size amount is all I need to get soft lips! I use it at least once a week and my lips has thanked me ever since. A tub retails for Php 175 and is available at beautymnl.com and at humanheartnature.com
BENEFIT BROW CONTOUR PRO
If you love having your brows on fleek, this newest product from Benefit is for you. This 4-in-1 product defines & highlights the brows. Conveniently in pencil form, it’s easy to switch from one product to another.

This was me during the launch of Brow Contour Pro. My brows were done by no other than National Brow Artist, Celina Fernandez using Benefit Brow Contour Pro in Medium Brown. Benefit Brow Contour Pro is available at all Benefit Cosmetic stores and online through www.sephora.ph
That’s it! Excited to discover more products this coming October. ☺️
