Nature Republic Skin Care Products

One of the Korean skin care brands I really like is Nature Republic. I have the Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream, Fresh Farm Foam Cleanser (Rice), and Omega Wrinkle Filler Mask Sheets.

 

Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream (P485)

 

I’m currently using the Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream (01/pink beige) and I find it a little too pink for my skin tone.  I know, it was silly of me but I have oily skin that’s very acidic so I had to go for the lighter shade.  The BB cream provides medium coverage and I find it easy to blend.  It also has a built-in SPF 35 PA++ sunscreen.

Last Skin Care and Hair Care Purchases for 2010

The year’s almost over and  I already made my last batch of skin care and hair care purchases for 2010.  I had the items custom purchased from Seoul through  Davao TLC Shop.

Included in this batch are the following:

Somang Keratin SilkProtein Hair Pack (PhP900) and Somang Keratin SilkProtein Hair Aqua Essence (PhP265)–   I just love Somang products! And I’m so happy Somang has the hair pack and hair aqua essence in big bottles because both products are excellent for my frizzy hair.  I apply the hair pack after every shampoo, leave it on for 5 minutes, and then rinse it off.  It leaves my hair soft and manageable sans the greasy feel.

Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream

Thanks to Joeanne and Brad of Davao TLCshop Fab Finds, my favorite one-stop shop for Korean skin care and makeup items, I now have a tube of Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream. 🙂

I got the  smaller (20g) tube of M Perfect Cover BB Cream because the size is just perfect for travel and I know that even with its size, the tube is good for a couple of months.  Also, I chose No. 21 (lightest shade) even if I’m not fair-skinned.  I have oily skin that’s very acidic so I had to choose a lighter shade because most powders and bases leave a dark cast on my face a few minutes after application. The bright beige shade is a good match for my skin tone (update:  turns ashy in an hour or two, especially when the weather’s humid)

Skin Talk Light Peel Duo

More than a month ago, I added a new product to my nighttime skin care regimen– the Skin Talk Light Peel Duo.

I decided to try the Skin Talk Light Peel Duo because the 2-step skin care system is specially formulated to prevent acne and lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  I have very oily and blemish-prone skin so I’m always on the hunt for affordable anti-acne products.  Plus, I’m already in my 30’s so the Light Peel Duo’s anti-aging properties is a major plus for me.

Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On

Garnier Brightening Eye Roller for Dark Circles and Eye Bags

I have  dark under-eye circles (due to lack of sleep and err, aging) so I purchased the Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On when they repriced it at Php199.  I decided to try Garnier’s Eye Roller  in the hopes of lightening my dark circles and lessen the appearance of  fine lines under my eyes.

I use the Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On twice a day and with a very light hand, massage my under-eye area to promote circulation.  The gel leaves a temporary cooling effect to the skin and I store the roller in the fridge for optimum results. Continue reading Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On
