Smudge Sticks

Founded by broadcast journalist Ces Drilon, Provenciana Naturals offers smudge sticks and artisanal soap to release stress “the natural way.” Smudge sticks are similar to aromatherapy, but instead of diffusing essential oils, the actual sources of dried herbs and flowers are burned. The benefits include a possible boost in mood, dissipating negative energy, and better sleep—all while promoting relaxation.

Cleansing Foam

Shiseido’s high-end product line’s mission is to “prolong beauty with the mystical powers of Japan’s legendary ingredients.” In Japan, the Enmei herb is known for its healing characteristics. The Future Solution Cleansing Foam utilizes Enmei in a formula to remove impurities while retaining skin’s essential moisture, leaving a fresh, smooth look and feel.

Shiseido locations include Alabang Town Center, Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 5, Power Plant Mall, Robinsons Place Magnolia, Shangri-La Plaza, and SM Aura Look.

Anti-Aging and Wrinkle Treatments

For over 60 years, the Clarins has been developing plant-based formulas to help all skin types age gracefully. Part of the wide range is the famous Double Serum (which uses 21 plant extracts to address signs of aging) and the Super Restorative Day Cream (powered by Organic Harungana to target wrinkles and visibly improve slackening).
