SHOPPING LIST: Reliable beauty and personal care picks | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

What makes for a reliable product? I observe that there are three factors. The first one is, of course, effectivity. If it works, the word-of-mouth recommendations outpace a social media campaign. Effectivity leads to the second factor: Longevity.

There are many popular items but not all of them last. With longevity, you see how a product maintains a loyal following despite new trends. In beauty and personal care, people will still go back to what they’ve tried previously, no matter if there are new things. Sure, they perhaps give the latest item a try. But the moment that it doesn’t work or runs out, people will go back to what they’re used to.

Longevity connects to the third factor: Adaptability. A product can work well for a long time, but it also needs to be able to change for its clients. It’s about improving the product without compromising the quality that made it a hit in the first place.

Reliable personal care and beauty products are especially important now that we have the time to evaluate what truly serves us.

Nutrabliss by Watsons Collagen + Vitamin C

Taking collagen supplements can help maintain youthful skin. Some would even say you should start taking it as early as possible every day so you can age gracefully. We’ve also long known the need for extra Vit. C in our system. So what does Nutrabliss by Watsons do? They combined these two in a chewable tablet with a yummy passion fruit flavor. Nutrabliss also carries other vitamins and supplements like Lutein + Bilberry Capsules and Iron + Folic Acid Chewables, formulated for different needs.

Whisper #TheNewBrave

When it comes to “red days,” I’m an advocate of letting women choose the right product for their needs and comfort. There are many different feminine care options in the market, and that’s a good thing! Women who prefer Whisper are those who appreciate how it has 12-hour leakage protection, dermacare lotion, and a curved design. It suits different lifestyles and situations. Check out their latest campaign called #TheNewBrave.

Apollo Castro Oil

There was a time when I’d buy an amber bottle of Apollo Caster Oil and use it with a disposable mascara wand so I could comb the oil through my lashes and brows. I don’t have to do that anymore as Apollo Castor Oil now comes in a mascara tube! Castor oil provides moisture so your brows and lashes can grow with less breakage. The act of combing your brows and lashes regularly encourages them to grow in the direction you wish.

L’Oreal Paris Rouge Signature Baked Nudes

When you’ve got an excellent lipstick formula, all you need to do is find the right shade. L’Oreal continues to build on their Rouge Signature with Baked Nudes. These shades are made with different skin tones in mind. There’s “I Liberate,” “I Enlight,” and “I Believe” for fair skin tones; “I Conquer,” “I Hunt,” and “I Enchant” for medium skin tones; while “I Convince,” “I Dominate,” and “I Insist” are recommended for deeper morena skin tones.  These colors have a featherlight, non-sticky, and non-drying formula that helps redefine our understanding of what a liquid lipstick should be.

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Age Spot Erasing Serum

Apart from collagen and hyaluronic acid, retinol is a beauty ingredient that should be a permanent fixture on your vanity. Retinol prevents wrinkles and fine lines. It helps lighten dark spots and other blemishes. It’s a powerful ingredient that your dermatologist often prescribes in different forms. Beauty gurus, on the other hand, will tell you starting on a small amount is always advisable. It’s why Celeteque’s newest product is just the thing when you need a serum that quickly helps the skin.
