Etude House Skin Care Products

When it comes to skin care, I tend to spend more than what I’d normally spend on makeup.  And I love Korean skin care products, more so when they’re super affordable.  So it’s no secret that I often visit Etude House at Abreeza Mall because the store always carry something that catches my fancy.

A few weeks ago, I treated myself to number of Etude House skin care items:

  • Moistfull Massage Mask, P398
  • Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam, P148
  • Moistfull Collagen Mask Sheet, P98
  • Essence Mask Collagen, P58
  • Essence Mask Vitamin C, P58
  • I Need You, Green Tea Mask Sheet, P58
  • I Need You Aloe Mask Sheet, P58
  • Happy Tea Time Cleansing Cream (Lemon Tea), P198

Vitacreme B12 Regenerating Cream

Hey, guys! I’m back.  After months of blogging hiatus, here I am trying to revive my blogs.

Well, anyway, even if I wasn’t blogging much, I still continued to try out a number of skin care products.  In fact, there were times when I tried to come up with a short review of those products but I just didn’t know where to start.  Finally, I have decided to pick one product to review before the month ends and I chose Vitacreme B12.

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)
