Happy Skin Festival of Colors

What comes first to mind when you suddenly have the need to buy or restock on your skin care and makeup? We Filipinos have this colonial mentality, guilty, and want all things foreign. It may seem that foreign brands are more trusted than those products made locally. Well, we think it's time to change our habits and support homegrown brands. 

Which brand are we talking about? It's the cute-and-happy-looking one you see and you just feel in such a positive mood — Happy Skin Cosmetics! With their cute packaging, affordable pricing, and skin-friendly products, what more could one ask for? Happy Skin just recently launched two collections: (1) Festival of Colors summer collection and (2) Catch the Sun suncare line. Here are some of their new products we tested for you guys!
