This is why we’ve dug deep in search of products that are worth your time and money. We’ve narrowed it down to five skincare and beauty products perfect for your everyday use.
“I don’t mean to brag but I be like ‘Put it in the bag.'”
Ariana Grande said it and we’re doing it.

Ellana Cosmetics Daily Defense and Color Correcting Primer contains SPF 30 and Japanese Tsubaki Oil for that dewy finish you’ve been dreaming of.

Sundays Modern Beauty
Highlighters are gracing our feed and we’re not even complaining. Of the ones recently released by local brands, Sundays Modern Beauty’s Sparklight Series is our pick! Glowing from within isn’t enough for gals who are constantly in the trend. These come in three shades: Portia (champagne), Phoebe (rose gold), and Elara (gold).
Sage and Tera The Aftermask
Raise your hand if you can’t even with the heat right now. Right? A great way to refresh yourself is by spraying a facial mist on those doggone dog days. Sage and Tera is a local brand that specializes in natural formulations that release your inner glow. One of its bestsellers, The Aftermask, is a facial mist that can be a dupe to a popular Western brand. Sshhh. You didn’t hear it from us.
Savon Essentials Brow Soap
Full brows are in! Achieve thick feathered brows by adding volume to your eyebrows. Savon Essentials Brow Soap is an old Hollywood trick with a modern spike. Take a damp spoolie, glide it on the product, and apply it on your brows, brushing upwards.
