The holidays are coming. While it’s still November, now is the time to get that shopping list and look for that perfect gift for your friends. The stores at this time are still not crowded so you can waltz your way as you scour the aisle for presents and singing , “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” in your best Alvin and the Chipmunks voice. I am just kidding.
Most of the products listed here are available in the Philippines. These are merely suggestions, and it’s up to you to choose what to give your friends. Of course, you have to know what your friends preferences and likes are before choosing any gift to give to them.
I like receiving shower gels, lotions, perfume, and of course, makeup.
Here are some cool gifts that you can get for your beauty savvy friends in no particular order:
Pink Sugar is a brand here in the Philippines that caters to makeup. Yes, these products are getting good reviews from beauty bloggers here. So far, I like their Sugar Tint Lip and Cheek Tint. I am trying out other colors aside from the nude liquid lippie I have in the Honey Bunny Shade shown below. You may visit their website here. Yes, Pink Sugar is a cruelty- free as well.
SHEET MASKS FROM WATSONS
Watsons is a beauty and drug store here in the Philippines. Yes, they sell sheet masks of all brands, and variants. You’ll find affordable masks ranging from the least amount of 60 Philippines Pesos to more expensive ones. I can stay inside this store all day, and just look around at the different products that they’re selling.
SPANISH COLOGNE NENUCO
Your friends who love Nenuco will surely love this. When you put this on you, the smell stays all day long, even on your clothes.
BURT’S BEES PRODUCTS
I love Burt’s Bees products especially the Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream. They smell good and they’re handy too. The products are perfect to bring when you go to work, or travel and you don’t want a makeup bag that’s bulky.
HAND SOAP FROM WATSONS
These are affordable liquid hand soap from Watson’s. These are available on a buy one take one basis. The Green Tea scent is what I like the best. Aside from these, their shower gels are also awesome. You may visit their official website in this link
BOXES OF TWININGS TEA
Personally, I prefer the Earl Grey tea flavor (Aside from the fact that it’s the name of my bunny too). I love the aromatic smell it produces when I pour hot water over the tea bag. Aside from that, I can add milk and it becomes milk tea. I got this Pure Darjeeling variant when I attended a wedding reception at Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant here in the Philippines.
