There’s nothing better than an honest opinion. And when it comes to the products you put on your face, you need reviews you can trust. That’s why we’ve rounded up five reviews, each coming from members of the Belo HQ, to tell you guys about the Belo Shop products that have earned a special place in their heart (and skincare routine).

“My favorite product ever is the ZO® Oil Control Pads. It was recommended to me before by my Belo doctor, and I still use it up to now. This product helped me control my mask-related breakouts throughout the quarantine period!
“But the latest self-care treat I got from the Belo Shop was the Belo Illuminating System. I personally got so interested because of Dr. Belo…she personally uses it and loves it, [and] she even told us her skin remained fair all over, even after a trip to Amanpulo. It’s definitely a plus factor when you hear THE Dr. Belo rave about a specific product or treatment. It’s a two-part system, and I love the instant whitening effect of the cream. It smells nice too. But I mixed my favorite body oil with the cream to add a more relaxing scent to it.
“I want to even out my skin tone, especially now that I’m indoors most of the time and I don’t get too much sunlight exposure. I’m only into my first week of using the products, but I noticed that my skin’s started micro-peeling, which is a good sign. My skin looks better and healthier in general, too.”
“I developed freckles and melasma from years of extensive exposure to the sun due to surfing, plus my overall skin quality changed a lot postpartum. Since I was young, my mom’s always taught me the importance of skincare, but it wasn’t until my 30s that I started to listen and decide to invest in a solid skincare regimen (she’s a major fan of ZO®, and we know moms know best!).
“I’m trying to make up for all those years of neglect, and I’m so happy to find these easy-to-use products, especially for a low-maintenance girl like me (I can’t do a 10-step skincare regimen to save my life). I use ZO® Daily Power Defense, ZO® Brightalive, and ZO® Calming Toner, plus the Belo Prescriptives Kojic Acid Facial Wash. I started using these products just a few months ago, but I could see my skin glow and become flawless within days. I swear, ZO® works like magic! Go talk to a Belo doctor (Dr. Guada is my doctor, and one of the OGs) to find out which ones will work best for you.”

“I first came to Belo when I was 13 years old. My mom took me to the Alabang branch because I was having the worst breakouts at such a young age. Back then (the year was 2010), my doctor prescribed me with the basics: the Belo Prescriptives Glycolic Soap 5% and the Belo Prescriptives Pore Minimizer. Glycolic acid is a great chemical exfoliant that Dr. Belo’s known to be a fan of, and the pore minimizer is a quintessential part of most Belo anti-acne routines. I’m now 24 years old, and these products are still in my routine! As they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If something’s proven to work for you, your best bet is to stick to it.”

“I love the ZO® Exfoliating Cleanser. Doc Hayden recommended it [to me]. Before quarantine began, I used to walk and bike to work as my daily exercise. But due to Manila’s pollution, my skin became oily, so much so that I thought I had the ‘glass skin glow.’ When I started using this cleanser, though, my skin reverted from oily to its natural, normal state. My skin feels refreshed every time I use it. Unlike other facial scrubs, it feels soft and gentle when applied to the face. I find that it pairs well with the ZO® Oil Control Pads for the best results, since the pads remove excess oil and dirt. What I learned this year is no matter how much makeup you slather on, it can’t cover up unhealthy skin. You have to take care of what’s underneath, so that makeup enhances, rather than conceals, your natural beauty.”

“The Belo Illuminating Cream is one of my earliest product discoveries as a fairly new employee. What made it stand out among other products that were introduced to me was the promise of lightening darker areas of the body. I suffer from contact dermatitis, so I have random dark spots all over my body from scratch wounds. I love how the product is able to effectively even out my skin tone! I’m not planning on wearing a bikini anytime soon, but it gives me peace of mind and an extra boost of confidence that I’m able to fix my skin problems!”
