A Local Skin and Personal Care Brand I'm Sure You'll Love!

June 21, 2019

Local brands have recently been stepping up their game in bringing us natural and quality products. It always excites me whenever I get to try proudly Philippine made stuff for I don't have to look for international brands that can cater to my needs because they're all available here. 
Essentials by KD is a Filipino brand that was initially a passion project that turned into something that was always meant to be. After travelling and seeing beyond what is of norm, the creator/owner has turned the brand into something that others could experience as well. This FDA approved local brand is fully devoted into creating self-care products from premium and fruitful raw materials that can inspire all kinds of people, feelings and expressions. 

I've recently been stressed with work so when they asked me which scents I would like to try, I immediately picked fruity and soothing bunch to help me relax and calm my nerves. 

The stuff came in a cardboard box filled with simple and natural products - everything was so easy on the eye and packaging was cute and minimalist that I can't wait to try them all out! 

Let me take you to a tour with the essentials that my boxed contained with quick reviews about them. 
Mermaid Hair Mist
Selling Price: 200 php (120 ml)
Ingredients: Purified Water, Magnesium Sulfate, Salt and Coconut Oil


This product has absolutely done wonders for me especially when I had long hair. Since I was always on the go, I didn't have any time to fix my hair so this has helped me achieved my "mermaid waves"

All I had to do was put my hair on a bun, spray it with some of product, leave it for about an hour and once I remove my hair tie - I get my instant natural looking waves with zero effort!

Note: I am yet to try it on my short hair! I'll update this once done. <3

Hush Hand Sanitizer
Selling Price: 100 php
Ingredients: Ethyl Alcohol, Water, Fragrance Oils, Phenoxyethanol, PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil and Glycerin.

Who knew that sanitizing can smell this calming? I am always used to a strong alcohol scent whenever I sanitize with store brought sprays but with this, I never had to worry about that. Aside from it doing it's job in cleansing, it also can be used as a deodorizer which is even better because it makes everything smell like lavender too.

Rebel Sun Body Cream
Selling Price: 350 php (200 ml)
Ingredients: Unscented Base Lotion, Citrus Reticulata, Aroma Oil, Zingibe Officinate Aroma Oil and Musk Aroma Oil. 

I have always expressed that I am not a fan of putting on lotion but whenever the weather is not too humid, I try to put on as much as I can. This Rebel Sun variant from their Body Cream line has been quite a surprise! It is especially made to re-energize the skin and is designed to uplift the mood which really did work well for me. 

The rich and creamy formula of the product has rather a "ginger-orange-scent" to it which I love so much that if the humid weather is not letting put on lotion to my whole body, I'd put more on my hands instead so that I can keep on smelling it's perfect scent.

Stardust Body Mist
Selling Price: 450 php (110 ml)
Ingredients: Sugracane Extract, Purified Water, Lavandula Aroma Oil, Musk Aroma Oil

This soothing mist has been a key element whenever I start my rest days off from work. A thing that I learned from my mom is that a good smelling mist after a cold shower might just do the trick in making yourself feel good whether you opt to stay at home or have a whole day full of errands. A calming scent will definitely will set your day's mood, I can tell you that!

Since the scent doesn't last as long as I hoped it would, this has been my designated mist whenever I'm at home due to its aromatic blend that has been keeping me from smelling fresh and feeling zen all at the same time. 

Vanilla Mend Lip Balm
Selling Price: 120 pesos (4g)
Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Theobroma Cacoa Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Cera, Alba Wax, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil Flavor and Tocopherol Acetate. 


My lips have been been very chapped recently due to trying on different lipsticks that's why this lip balm has been my savior! I am not really a fan on putting on lip balm but I decided to use this to fix the problem. <3

Due to it's buttery consistency and vanilla scent,  I make sure that I put just enough on my lips. A good tip would be to slightly dab it on the lips and evenly spread the product with your fingers to make sure that the balm won't go to waste. I put this on my lips before bed to make sure that they will be having their treatment with absolutely no distractions.



Essentials By KD can absolutely curate a box that will suit your needs. They'll also been launching more products soon that I'm sure all of us will enjoy. Go and try what they have to offer and I'm sure that you won't regret it one bit. <3
