 “After a long day of work, I look forward to a little pampering before I call it a night. I’m currently into LAURA MERCIER’s Luxe Indulgence Almond Coconut Triplet (P5250). It’s a kit that consists of a body wash, body cream, and fragrance. The unique blend of milk, coconut, almond, vanilla, and musk gives the products a warm, seductive, and comforting scent that reminds you that you deserve some me time.”

– Peewee Reyes-Isidro, Editor-in-Chief


“A gentle, thorough cleansing after a long day is so soothing. I love using LA PRAIRIE Supreme Balm Cleanser (P10,000) with its velvety texture that makes it easy to glide on the skin and gently remove all traces of makeup, sunscreen, and dirt. I give my face a little massage, then with some lukewarm water, I softly rinse it out. There’s no oily or heavy residue, just soft, cleansed skin that feels so smooth and nourished even.”

– Trina Epilepsia Boutain, Managing Editor


“Every Friday night I use the FAACE Tired Mask (P1850) that’s available at The Collective as an overnight cream just to relieve my skin from the stresses of weekdays. Uncomplicated and versatile it reboots the skin with a surge of hydration with ingredients such as caffeine that also soothes irritation, aloe vera to retain the moisture, and vitamin C for a boost of radiance. No fail, when I wake up the next morning my face feels and looks like new!” 

– Jeb Fronda, Fashion Director


“LUSH Sleepy Body Lotion (P1125) has been my go-to when I need a self-caring moment. I was skeptical at first, but the lavender smell is enough to knock me out especially after taking a bath, while the added ingredients of almond oil and oat milk work overnight to moisturize the skin. It also leaves a warm, dreamy aroma inside the room, pretty much like a body lotion and an aromatherapy quick fix in one.”

– Lyn Alumno, Fashion Editor


“When Christmas break comes around, I start to take advantage of sleeping as late as I please, This might sound like bliss but only until the dark circles and wrinkles appear. To combat it, I’ve been loving the Black Diamond Eye Mask by 111SKIN (P4995 x 8 pcs.) which is a potent undereye mask. It has hyaluronic acid that plumps the skin and a small amount of retinol to tighten the area. Not to mention, its pitch-black but iridescent patches look great when taking that vacation selfie.”
