One of the things I’m grateful for in my beauty writing work is discovering local makeup brands that have really competitive products. Among these brands is Ellana Cosmetics.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn about their skin-friendly mineral makeup as well as their environment-friendly packaging. I went through a capsule makeup phase and instantly thought of the Ellana Gaia Refillable Magnetic Makeup Palette (P249). With this I can create a base palette with a foundation and a blush refill, or a color palette with the Ellana Multipurpose Color Cream Refill For Eyes, Lips, And Cheeks (P249-299).
Other popular makeup products from the brand include the Ellana DDCC Daily Defense Color Correcting Moisturizing Primer With SPF30 (P149 – ON SALE) and the Ellana Skin Smoothing Blur Primer (P149 – ON SALE). I haven’t tried these two but have heard a lot of good reviews about them. I’m definitely adding these to cart this Shopee Beauty Sale!
Also this year, Ellana released full skincare lines for dry skin and oily skin. I got to try both the Stay Fresh Gift Set (P1,595) and the Flower Power Gift Set (P1,595) with great results. While I prefer the Flower Power line, the Stay Fresh line also works on my dry skin since both moisturizers contain Pentavitin™ that offers “72-hour hydration”. I just need to add a bit of serum for more hydration when using Stay Fresh. I also love how chic the packaging looks and these lines have been my go-tos whenever I want a good basic skincare routine.
From their other skincare products, what I’m also interested in trying out is the Ellana Glass Skin Glow Cooling 3-In-1 Facial Mist (P449). It is said to help achieve “an instant glass skin glow”. I use up Ellana’s mists quite quickly so this Glass Skin Glow one going on sale is good news for my pocket.
Other skincare products include oil cleansers, serums, and mists. If you want to know what Ellana skincare products are recommended for your skin types, they have a free Skin Analyzer on their website.
