There’s nothing I love more than homegrown, organic beauty brands, so you could imagine my delight when I stumbled upon the Instagram page of Rraw PH. They’re an Iloilo-based brand that handcrafts their own products, making sure to use fresh, organic, chemical-free, and safe ingredients. Their colorful soaps and super cute packaging pretty much caught my attention immediately, and I was pleased to see that their products aren’t just wholesomely crafted, they’re also super affordable. Of course, I decided to order a whole bunch of their stuff, and in this post, I’ll be sharing with you my haul.
I’ve been wanting to try a new facial cleanser, so seeing the Sun and Moon Crystal Cleansers on offer at Php199 for the both of them seemed to good to be true. The Sun Crystal Bar is a morning facial cleanser formulated with glycerin, honey, lavender and jasmine, while the Moon Crystal Bar is an evening facial cleanser that rids the face of pollution and impurities, formulated with glycerin, rosebuds and chamomile.
I’ve run out of my Milkypiggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask, so I decided to get the Moroccan Clay Mask. According to Rraw, it’s great for ridding the complexion of blackheads, re-balancing and toning the skin, and improving skin clarity. It comes in powder form and you’re supposed to mix it with water, honey, or yogurt. I’m not a huge fan of masks you have to mix yourself, but I wanted to try this one out anyway.
The Tea Butter is an oil/butter-based eye cream. Look at the tin! It’s huge! I doubt I need that much eye cream, but the green tea and Shea butter formulation got me. It promises to lift eye bags and lighten dark circles. My alarm goes off at 4:45am every weekday, so it’s a given that I need something heavy duty for my eyes.
A regular yoga practice not only increases your strength and focus, it also makes for dry elbows and knees. I got the Melatonin Neuraw Scrub to help with this. It’s full of antioxidants, and it’s supposed to exfoliate your skin until it’s fresh and luscious. It’s supposed to be a calming scrub (hence, melatonin), and it’s also safe enough to use for the face.
I’ve always wanted a rosewater facial mist, so I had to get the Fresh Face Mist Rose. According to Rraw, the Fresh Face Mist is part lightweight day toner, part make up primer and part on-the-go facial mist. It’s supposed to help hydrate the face and control oil, keeping the face energized and refreshed.
I’m running out of lip balm at the moment, so I decided to include the Mint Coconut Lip Balm in my shopping cart. It only has four ingredients: Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, and Peppermint. I don’t have any major lip problems, so this seems like it would be a good everyday lip balm.
The Rraw Facial Moisturizer promises to hydrate the skin with its plant-powered ingredients. It’s supposed to be good for both dry and oily skin types as it works to control oil gland secretions. It has Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, which are great for the skin as they help to moisturize and reduce skin irritation.
Lastly, I got the Pink Salt Under Armpit Cleanser. An unusual purchase, I know, but I hate it when I can still feel the antiperspirant on my armpits even after I’ve scrubbed and showered. I’m hoping this cleanser helps to remove deodorant residue. Formulated with Kaolin Clay, Lemongrass, and Pink Himalayan Salt, the cleanser is supposed to help lighten, soften, and exfoliate your underarms.
And that’s it for my haul! If you can believe it, I was able to get these 9 products all for around Php1600. What a steal! I can’t wait to try them all out. I love patronizing Filipino brands, so I have high hopes for Rraw PH.
