4. Or if, for some reason, walang Chin Chun Su sa tindahan, Mena was there to step up.

5. Your nanay or tita had one of these "magic" lipsticks and you had to swipe REALLY fast before they catch you going through their kikay kits.

6. You bathed yourself with (knockoff) Victoria's Secret body mists.

7. Pero 'pag tipid, t'yaga ka muna sa Lewis & Pearl cologne.

8. If you're a guy and pinagpala ka sa buhay, your signature scent is probably CK One.

9. But if not, Bench/ Atlantis body spray does the job din naman.

10. Pair it up with a clear styling hair gel and ready ka na to make tusok the butiki na malalaglag from the kisame.

13. But your actual favorite was Jergen's Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific not only because of its quirky name but because it made your hair, well, smell terrific.

14. Hair Doctor combs were the shit because it's not only a comb, pwede ring pangaroling 'yung tunog n'ya CHAROT.

15. You didn't need for your hair to be naturally bouncy because the butterfly clips will do the bouncing for you!

16. You were a broke teenager and you wanted french tips so naturally, you used your correction fluid to do the trick.
