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.

Skin Food Grape Seed Oil Dual Body Oil

I used up the last of the sample size bottles of Neutrogena Body Oil Ria Jose gave me so I decided to purchase a bottle of Skin Food Grape Seed Oil Dual Body Oil.

Not that I don’t like Neutrogena Body Oil.  In fact,  I love it’s light sesame formula that leaves my skin moisturized all day long.  But I also wanted to try a body oil with a fruity scent as opposed to Neutrogena’s lingering sensual scent.

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)

Davao TLCshop Fab Finds

I’m a fan of Korean and skin care makeup brands so I was super delighted when Joeanne, the owner of Davao TLCshop Fab Finds, contacted Ria and invited us to visit her store.

The store, located at Nova Tierra Village in Lanang, Davao City, is very near my place.  But even if you’re from the opposite side of the city, I say the trip is really worth it because Davao TLCshop Fab Finds carries lots of items from popular Korean skin care and makeup brands like Missha, Skin Food, Lioele, VOV, Tony Moly, Innisfree, and Nature Republic.  They also have collectibles  for Korean drama and kpop  fanatics.
