This list includes the uber viral essence and hybrid cushion
How many of you have been victimized by the “budol” culture and how many of the products did you regret buying? We know, scrolling on social media and seeing these testimonies about better skin are really tempting. Trust us, we’ve been there.
On this list, we’ve rounded up several products that went viral on social media, tested them for ourselves, and essentially got our seal of approval. These few ones really stood out as they came through with the promise they make. From skincare to makeup hybrids, here’s a roster of products that we think really deserved the hype.
Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, Cosrx, P683
A couple of months ago, I remember sitting down at a dinner with other media friends and they started complimenting my skin. All I can remember that’s a new addition to my routine is this snail mucin from Cosrx.
This essence is enriched with 96 percent snail secretion filtrate and 1000pm sodium hyaluronate that smoothes out and plumps the skin. This is said to target dark spots, skin texture, and dry skin also which it actually did.
Lip Sleeping Mask Ex, Laneige, P1,055
If you’re looking to condition and prime your chapped and dry lips before kissing someone under the mistletoe, this lip sleeping mask gives more than just supple and kiss-worthy lips. This product also works if you want a lip primer before putting on any lip products for a more even application.
The formula boasts berry fruit complex, vitamin C, and coconut oil leaving them puckers soft and visibly smooth.
T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum, Drunk Elephant, P5650
Suffering from congested pores and a dull complexion? This formulation from Drunk Elephant boasts glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids to remove flaky and dead skin cells on the surface for better skin texture overnight!
What we love about this brand is all Drunk Elephant products are biocompatible. This means the products have been formulated promising no irritations, or allergic reactions, and would not induce congestion and irritation.
Holy Grail Brow Gel Laminator, Happy Skin, P599
Want to perfect the “brow on fleek” look? This eyebrow laminator from Happy Skin is our best bet! The two-ended applicator features a soft wax-gel on one side and two types of brush on the other for lifting and shaping. This formula has peptides to nourish the hair, niacinamide to soothe and moisturize the skin beneath, and caffeine to stimulate lusher, full-grown brows.
True Beauty Inside Cushion, BareNBliss, P899
Want that flawless and glowing complexion like your K idols? This hybrid of skincare and foundation won the hearts of many makeup and skincare enthusiasts on Tiktok making it one of the most viral products in the app.
What we like about this product is its buildable coverage yet skin-like finish. The Korean brand also infuses this formulation with five Korean flowers (hibiscus, magnolia, chamomile, camellia, and calendula) for their superb antioxidant skin nourishing effect and UV protection of SPF 45 PA+++ to protect the skin from UV damage.
Fine to Refine Compact Powder, BareNBliss, P599
Say goodbye to shine! This last product could somehow be tied up to the cushion. If you’re looking to blur out pores and basically have a face filter in real life, don’t sleep on this one. Just like the cushion, this ultra-light powder also features SPF 25 PA++ and will give you that airbrushed matte finish.
