Was staying in a pod for more than hour *really* relaxing?
When I was offered a chance to try a saltwater float at Float Manila, I immediately said yes-even if I only had a vague idea of what the treatment was. The words "saltwater float" conjured up an image of myself lying
Spoiler: I'm no angel, but this face powder got my skin to look like one.
Loose face powder is something that never appealed to me because I found it messy to use. Why opt for a powder that can easily spill when there's a compact, pressed version, right? But when SkinPotions came out with Glowdust,
We wore the products during an exercise class to find out!
Kathryn Bernardo's first collaboration with local beauty brand Happy Skin was a huge success. The Generation Happy Skin line was always sold out, and fans and beauty enthusiasts couldn't seem to get enough of it. This is why
These eyeshadow palettes are all WORTH IT!
Eyeshadow is one of those makeup products we don't use on a daily basis. Why would we need an extra product when our lip tints, blushes, and lipsticks can double as lid colors, right? But when we're ~*in
Would we recreate these IRL?
These days, we're constantly on Instagram to get inspiration for almost everything, including hairstyles. This past year in hair trends, we noticed three looks that reigned supreme: sparkly hair clips and barrettes, pretty statement headbands, and sleek glass hair. We decided
I don't regret the pain of the needles and laser at all.
I've battled with acne in college, and I still have scars from my distant youth, LOL. I've religiously tried exfoliating acids to control my pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads, and to improve my skin texture. So far, my complexion
I’m already thinking about my next visit to the salon!
Let's face it, there are days when putting on makeup requires more effort than usual. In my honest opinion, it takes up a good amount of your time and every so often, there are just so many products involved. That's
P1,000 can go a long way.
I consider myself a laid-back makeup lover. I have my staples but I can also get by with just three makeup products if needed. I'm also kind of a cheapskate (at least compared to my friends, a lot of
Spoiler alert: These liquid lippies won't dry out your lips!
It seems like celebs are coming out with beauty brands left and right, and the latest is Kris Bernal's SHE Cosmetics! The actress launched her makeup line in February 2019, and its initial offering is a collection of five liquid
Is it just a gimmick or something else?
With all the sheet masks that have come out over the last few years-for the face, hands, feet, and the neck-I'm not really surprised a vagina sheet mask now exists. I am glad it's locally available,
So much LOL!
Lip balm is a staple in every girl's makeup kit. It gives instant relief to dry, chapped lips, and acts as a smoothing base for lipsticks. Also, a flavored lip balm scores plus points because it satisfies our cravings sans
Cheers to seven days of having cool ink!
If you've always fantasized about having a tattoo but you're scared of the commitment that comes with it, we've found the perfect product for you! We road-tested Penshoppe's Temporary Tattoo Pen, one of
It was a week full of rediscovery.
As the Assistant Beauty Editor of Cosmopolitan Philippines, I get sent and try a ton of beauty products. This results in my kikay kit always being a combination of various brands, never from just one-in fact, I actually get excited/kilig
Is that you, Bok Joo?
It's no secret that we love anything Korean- and Korean beauty-related here at Cosmo HQ. So when we asked the team if anyone wanted to get a ~*Korean hair makeover*~, our Associate Art Director, Mixi Ignacio, quickly said yes!
Did it live up to the hype?
Of all the beauty ingredients I've come across in my job, snail mucus is the one that has intrigued me the most. From snail sheet masks, to essences, to serums, and to moisturizers, it's clear that people all
Our evening skincare routines have evolved!
There will never be ~*one*~ skincare routine that will suit everyone because honestly, it takes a lot of trial and error to find the products that will perfectly work for you. And since your skin will evolve (i.e. age, hormones, etc.),
Because we're all about that sweaty glow this summer.
No matter where we go, whether it's hot or cold, there's always one makeup product we never fail to apply on our faces: highlighter. We're obsessed with bathing our cheekbones, browbones, nose bridges, and cupids'
See our ~in-depth~ review here!
As we were doing our usual ~market research~ (stalking beauty aisles in the department store), one product caught our eye: The Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint! We knew we had to try it because 1) We are obsessed with lip tints 2)
We don't want to spoil anything, but the results were ~interesting~.
When the ~*Infuse My. Colour*~ shampoos landed on our desks at the Cosmo HQ, we were intrigued by them-each vegan, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and silicone-free bottle claimed to revive, enhance, and maintain the tone of colored tresses! Aside from
Beauty content creator Anna Cay just launched two makeup sponges, with each one retailing at P288.
When Anna Cay released her first batch of Airblender Sponges online on February 14, 2019, everything sold out in just 13 minutes. There were two sponges in the collection: a baby pink teardrop-shaped sponge and a black beveled sponge. Fortunately, a
A molecular biologist and medical doctor are behind the brand!
Most skincare products are formulated by dermatologists so when I came across Apotheke Science, I was intrigued by the fact that it was created by a molecular biologist and a medical doctor. Apotheke Science is a handcrafted skincare line that claims to
