When I was little, my mom has instilled in me the importance of skin care. I didn’t understand it then. I remember how much I hated applying lotion after bathing, it was such a drag! But then I reaped the benefits of it as I grew older, with people admiring my smooth and young-looking skin and mistaking me for a fresh grad (when I’m really in my early 30’s).
What happens when a travel-loving dermatologist brings in her favorite premium skincare products from Korea? About Face happens, that's what! This Philippine-based online store is carrying a few amazing things, and I'm here to talk to you about five of their best-selling products that you are not likely to find anywhere else. I've tried them and yes, color me impressed. That's why I asked for a 20% discount code (it's projectvanity, use it) which you guys can key in your shopping cart to get a straight up discount site-wide. The code is valid until May 31 only so...you know the drill.
The access we have to all kinds of beauty brands and products gets better and better every day, though we admittedly still have a few on our wishlist. While waiting for these brands to make their way to our shores, you can get your dose of international beauty through these online shops!
In the Philippines, we're more used to seeing and patronizing affordable Korean brands. I think that's great because you get such nice quality at a price that your wallet won't bite you for! Korea is a beauty manufacturing powerhouse. So imagine this: if the products are already so good even when they're inexpensive, how much better can they be when they're on the premium end of the spectrum?
It's been awhile since I've used a BB cream. As of late, I've been trying to skip foundation or BB cream and stick with moisturiser [not even a tinted moisturiser]. Also, there's a lot of BB creams out there that I could no longer keep up with the brands. But my favourite BB creams are those from Korean makeup brands.
I got them before Christmas but started using them after the holidays because I was still testing out different products. I tell you though, it was quite difficult to resist because I wanted to swatch the lip crayons the moment I saw them!
