Top 6 classic beauty products you don’t know still exist

by

Before Maybelline, Olay, Ponds, and Garnier hit the Philippines by storm, there were our mothers’ favorite beauty products that made us believe that aging could be delayed.
We grew up receiving reprimands from our mothers while they were applying creams and toner, facing a mirror on a “tokador” (dressing table) full of makeups, lotions, and facial solutions.
The Filipino Times made a list old beauty products that inarguably paved ways for the beauty and wellness industry in the country.

1. Chin Chun Su
This product turned our mother into a scary white lady, literally. Chin Chun Su is a facial cream used as an all-around, non-irritant clearing and lightening facial cream. This is usually applied at nighttime to as age defying cream that can prevent acne outbreaks, age spots, pimples, and wrinkle spots.
This 50-peso must-have is still available in the market. It can be usually purchased from Chinese drugstores.

2. Lyna Medicated Cream/ Lyna Pearl Face Cream
This concealer-type cream is used as a day solution to hide blackheads, pimples, ephelis and wrinkles. Beauty bloggers adore Lyna products for delivering fast results, but some also lament its mercury content. Reviews said the use of mercury can provide permanent neurological damage to skins.
The mercury issue did not stop this product from making names. It is still available in some Asian herbal stores for less than P200.

3. Mena
You probably remember its commercial jingle “Mena-na-na-na.” But despite its catchy commercial, this product is also a culprit behind the fear of seeing our mothers turn into a white lady at night. Mena cream is used both for nighttime and daytime. It hides pimples and blemishes in the morning and acts as an anti-aging solution when used before bedtime. According to users, Mena triggers oiliness since it is a dry cream.
Mena facial products are still popular enough to be available through online shopping sites. Some sellers offer a package of four creams for P250.

4. San-ing
A review posted on Reviewstream.com described San-ing as the second best Chinese facial cream, next to Lyna products. It is known for keeping wrinkles away and preventing acne outbreaks. It also uses Sulfur, which is regarded as the best anti-pimple solution. Former users also found this product as effective in hiding eye bags and pimple marks.
This product sounds effective, but little is known about the availability of San-ing the country. However, this may still be purchased through Amazon.

5. Kokuryu Cream Cake
This foundation is still being marketed as a waterproof foundation. Some say it is a good catch for beauty enthusiasts who want to maintain glam while swimming. However, it does not contain a sun protection formula, which is why experts recommend avoiding using Kokuryu under the sun.
Kokuryu products are still available in department stores. The Cream Cake has light, medium, and dark shades and available at less than P150.
ng drugstores and department stores. It is also available at various online shopping sites at P185.
