If you’re anything like me, I usually treat myself to a pamper day whenever I get too stressed out. And with everything that’s happening around us, it’s almost impossible to find peace of mind. While some of our favorite salons and spas are probably going to stay closed for most of what’s left of 2020, it doesn’t mean that we can’t pamper ourselves. Here’s a list of online shops that still deliver all your beauty and wellness needs during the ECQ:
If you’re looking for more than just beauty essentials, BeautyMNL offers health and wellness products such as food and food supplements that help keep you healthy. Among the products under this category are chia seeds, granola and protein bars. They also offer some salt lamps, crystal tools and essential oils. A good number of their products are actually on sale right now.
If you’re familiar with the brand, it’s probably because you can smell the store from the other side of the mall. Kidding aside, Lush is famous for their bath bombs (as seen on some of our favorite YouTubers’ videos). They also specialize in vegan and cruelty-free skincare products from shampoo bars to body lotions. For the insomniacs out there, their sleepy lotion is something a lot swear by for its ability to relax you into a good night’s sleep.
What I like about Beauty Bar is that aside from the usual makeup and skincare products, they provide beauty tools such as hair removal and styling tools. They even have home spa essentials like massagers and bath salts. Some of the brands they carry are Canmake Tokyo, Smashbox, K-Palette and Burt’s Bees.
If you’re looking for a local eco-friendly brand, Human Nature might just be the one for you. This social enterprise offers different products for different grooming concerns, both for men and women. Personally, I’m a big fan of their day and night moisturizers because they don’t leave you feeling sticky. They also have great deals that won’t leave a dent in your wallet.
Although Watsons and other major drugstore chains carry a lot of makeup and skincare brands, there are some brands considered “drugstore makeup” but aren’t easily accessible to Filipinos. Beauty Beat offers a wide range of international “drugstore brands” such as Physician’s Formula (known for their bronzers), Colourpop, Rimmel London and more. Unfortunately due to the ECQ, they can only deliver to Metro Manila.
