Whether the sun shines or the rain pours, our skin still needs love and care to look its best. 

Now that it’s the start of -Ber months, gatherings and parties are just around the corner. Not only should we prioritize hydrating our skin, but also start gathering tools to create the best holiday looks.

Check out these latest releases because it’s time to step up your kikay kit game before the year ends!

AVON’s Anew Renewal Power Eye Cream


The Anew Renewal Power Eye Cream claims to instantly brighten and blur the eye area and reduce puffiness and wrinkles over time. With its main ingredient, Protinol, continuous usage of the eye cream for seven days will stimulate a better quality of collagen to restore years of collagen loss. Pair this with Avon’s Anew Renewal Power Serum with Protinol and Niacinamide that help renew skin at the surface. These two are the power duo that helps achieve firmer and smoother skin, intense hydration, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 

Get the New Anew Renewal Power Eye Cream for P699 and the Anew Renewal Power Serum for P1,099.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and Water Gel 


With the Philippines’ ever-changing weather, the skin can get dehydrated, and with the sweat from the humidity, the skin barrier will dry out and weaken. But with Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Serum (P1,299) and Hydro Boost Water Gel (P1,103), you can hydrate and moisturize the skin with only two steps! The serum and water gel contain hyaluronic acid, the main ingredient of both skincare that helps increase the moisture content in the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and dullness.

QUICKFX Pimple Eraser products 


Sweat and pollution are reasons for pimples to show up, but with QUICKFX’ Pimple Eraser products, reducing spots and marks can be easy.

Check out Donny Pangilinan’s Limited Edition Pimple Eraser kit that retails for P899. The kit includes OG Pimple Eraser Cream, which has been loved and a go-to for many; The Newer Recovery Concentrate that targets to fade pimple marks and dark marks; Spot Patches that have microneedle technology, which flattens bigger acnes; and the newest Body Spray formulated to clear acne for chests and back areas. The limited edition kit will include these products in their full size.

You may have heard of the international brand Y.O.U all around TikTok. Their TikTok famous 2-in-1 Moisturizing Cream has skin-loving benefits that will repair your skin barrier and brighten the skin.
