THE HIT LIST: Best Beauty Products for 2013 (Part 1, Face)


Alright, folks. Here's the blog post that you have been waiting for. I realized, I have a lot of very good finds last 2013 so I had to divide the posts into 4. Starting off with my best face products for 2013! :)

BEST MAKEUP REMOVER

1. NUTOX OXYFUSION SOFTENING PRE-CLEANSER

Why I Love It: Light, refreshing, smells nice, and removes makeup really well


Why I Love It: Light, truly gentle, and removes any kind of waterproof makeup, and doesn't leave any residue in the eyes.


Why I Love It: Perfect for tropical weather, super light, non- greasy, has versatile uses, and affordable


Why I Love It: Affordable but removes any kind of makeup; doubles as a milky wash- off cleanser


Why I Love It- Luxurious, delicate, highly moisturizing, and a dollop does a lot of removal.


Why I Love It- Extremely gentle, non-oily, doubles as an eye makeup remover as well


Why I Love It- removes lipstick and long- wearing lip products yet without leaving a nasty taste.

The rest of my best finds for the face after the jump!


BEST FACIAL CLEANSER

8. NIVEA DEEP CLEANSING MUD FOAM

Why I Love It- a very affordable cleansing foam that takes away excess oil


Why I Love It- a super soft cleansing foam that pretty much suits all skin types, cleans skin thoroughly but doesn't leave it dry.


Why I Love It- a unique, caring facial foam that feels like cloud on skin, removes makeup really well and leaves skin feeling moisturized.

11. PHILOSOPHY PURITY MADE SIMPLE 3-IN-1 CLEANSER FOR FACE AND EYES

Why I Love It- this relaxing, facial cleanser is gentle, soothing, and works both ways: as a makeup remover and facial wash.


Why I Love It- non- clogging, refreshes skin, has superior cleansing power, and leaves a long- lasting cool sensation that helps shut enlarged pores. Very effective in minimizing pore appearance.

BEST FACIAL SCRUB


Why I Love It- this super mild cleanser really makes you feel that your face is free of dead skin cells. It's still my favorite facial scrub!


Why I Love It- a versatile scrubber that you can add to regular facial foams, use alone, or with body products. Best for those who don't want to turn a shade lighter due to scrubbing because it is devoid of whitening/brightening ingredients.

15. SNOE AWESOME PORESOME MICRODERMABRASION RETEXTURIZING POLISH

Why I Love It- it's microdermabrasion at home. This nice, extra gritty scrub is perfect for super rough skin, and has a very pretty tropical-floral scent to boot.

16. GARNIER PURE ACTIVE MULTI-ACTION SCRUB

Why I Love It- a budget facial scrub that helps clear skin of zits.

BEST FACIAL MASK


Why I Love It- never used anything as effective as this!


Why I Love It- At last, an effective strip that gets rid of gritty skin on the chin area.


Why I Love It- an ultra hydrating overnight mask that gives you super bright and fresh- looking skin overtime.

20. CAMARU NATURALS AMAZONIAN CLAY MASK

Why I Love It- Combines two of the things I love: Moisture and Clay. It absorbs oil effectively, but doesn't dry out skin. It's a sweet, sweet product for people with oily-combination skin.


Why I Love It- a multipurpose clay that visibly dries out acne and keeps skin matte for a long, long time.


Why I Love It- super moisturizing, affordable, comes in cute packaging, and has a wide variety.

BEST TONER


Why I Love It- Cools skin, removes excess oil, helps close pores, effective in minimizing pore appearance.


Why I Love It- hydrating, refreshing, and really softens skin!

BEST MOISTURIZER

25. OLAY AQUACTION MOISTURIZER

Why I Love It- extremely hydrating, watery, has a lovely floral scent, ultra light, and really keeps skin soft all day

26. MAC STROBE CREAM

Why I Love It- a moisturizer with makeup properties. Gives your skin that much- needed radiance on a dull day, and does not interfere with liquid base products.

BEST EYE CREAM


Why I Love It- De-puffs eyes effectively with its cooling effect


Why I Love It- Diminishes wrinkles-for realz.

BEST TREATMENTS/SERUM


Why I Love It- has high concentration of Salicylic Acid, dries up pimples in 1-2 days


Why I Love It- helps stall breakouts, can be used on the body to control back, chest, and arms acne


Why I Love It- Pure, unscented, and has helped alleviate rashes on my face.


Why I Love It- A light, nice- smelling serum that can be used day or night, has great cooling properties and does not aggravate oily skin, effective in minimizing pore appearance.


Why I Love It- Acts super fast on facial discolorations, produces effects in as little as 7 days.


Why I Love It- very light, absorbs well, moisturizing but never heavy, and really makes skin look healthier and brighter.

15 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Wow so many facial products! So far the only product that I'm using in your list is the Cure Aqua Gel and I gotta agree with you, it's one of the most effective products I used. Some of the face products that rocked my 2013 are the Shiseido Bioperformance eye cream (samples I got), Neutrogena water-based toner, Shiseido night cream, and Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin serum. They make my skin super supple when I wake up in the morning!

  2. Happy to see the Beauty Buffet masks on here! I bought a few, then forgot about them and was super surprised when I tried one out and it turned out to be great!

  3. There are too much :) I have tried some of them already and I must say they are really great.. Currently using the sisheido facial cleanser.
    This year, I am setting my eyes on Snoe and Absynthe Products as well.
    I need to go back to that New Peptin Eye Contour Cream Review..I think I missed that.. I need something for my eyes..too much crow feet I think and I had a fan like (or fishtail like) dent on the outer corners of my eyes which makes eyelining a tad more difficult.

  6. I have tried some of the products also..Cure has been the mildest scrub I've tried. It gives me soft skin after using it, but Garnier scrub makes my skin feeling dry although it really dries up pimples. Watsons nose strips are good also, but it's kinda pricey compared to iWhite. :) Kiehl has a great moisturizer too..it really makes my face soft like baby. haha! plus it's not oily when applied. :) I use St. Ives Clay Mask before, but now I can't find it anywhere anymore. I think it's phased out already. :( It's good too on my face. Now I'm looking for a clay mask for some time already, can you recommend me one that's affordable atleast but has the quality to deliver best result. :) thanks in advance. :)

  9. Hi Ms. Martha! I'm just curious, don't you get skin irritation or breakouts from using several face products? coz that seems to be the case with me. and as much as I wanna try most of these top picks, I'm still quite unsure about purchasing! :/

  15. I got the Bifesta make up remover and it is the bomb! And it's true that it's non greasy, I love it.
    I badly wanted to try the snoe pore skin care but I'm still thinking about it. Thank you for including it in your list.
