mga sis, i think somang is the same as beauty credit. iniba lang ng kaunti ang packaging. when i was in HK kasi i went to sasa mga twice a day! (obsessed) so i played around with a lot of the products and i'm convinced.

Saw this korean moisturizer a week ago sa sm dept store.. IWhite yung name. Decided to buy the trial pack nung Aqua Moisturizing Cream and Facial Cream with SPF 15.. Super loved them.. Lalo na yung Aqua moisturizing cream.. water based siya and may cooling effect so sarap ipahid sa face lalo na ngayong mainit panahon.. so kanina when i passed by sm makati, i decided to replenish my stock.. But instead of buying the full size, I bought their gold gift pack worth Php499.. Here are the contents:

IWhite Gold Gift Pack:
 - Aqua Moisturizing Cream (4)
 - Facial Cream with SPF 15 (3)
 - Mandarin Extreme Cleansing Balm (1)
 - Pore Refining Coffee Sugar Polish (1)
 - Heating Pumpkin Enzyme Mask (2)
 - Ice Wine Rose Petal Mask (2)
 - Fresh Seaweed Skin Renewal Gel (3)
 - Moisturizing Facial Wash (2)
 - Whitening Pack (2)
 - Nose Pack (2)
 - Free Missha Moist Foundation in Warm 5 and Missha Light lipgloss..

Super happy pa ko sa free foundie ko kasi tama siya sa complexion ko.. :)

Yesterday, I bought Lemon Facial Wash and Dewy Flower Emulsion at The Face Shop (eto yung ni-reccomend ng SA sa akin for my combination skin). Ok naman sila so far. Day and night pwede gamitin yung emulsion and so far I like it. I roadtested it today and hindi nag oily ang skin ko.

Regarding Beauty Credit, meron na rin silang stall sa Watsons sa SM The Block. Aside from their Watsons MOA brand. What I like about Beauty Credit is the Charcoal Nose Patch, sobrang effective yet cheap. I reviewed it on my site: Charcoal Nose Patch.

I bought their powder foundation, Mousse Pack and got samples of Coenzyme Q10 too. View it here: Beauty Credit

Ngayon naman, BB creams ang tinatry ko, sana may mahanap ako na match sa kulay ko. :)

Good news sisses! I emailed Etude House yesterday about the possibilities of Philippine branches, and they replied that they'd be coming to the Philippines this year! They didn't specify the exact month though, so sana very soon.  ;D

That's what like about The Face Shop, aside from affordable prices they offer, reasonable na din. I haven't visit SkinFood, sa mga nababasa ko dito kadalasan, iisang word lang ang ginamit ng mga GT sissies natin.. MAHAL!!! lol... never mind nalang kahit may cc pa ako...

The Beauty Credit located in SM MOA Watsons, mukhang ok naman ang prods nila, reasonable din. But I am really after TFS..

i've tried the VOV 2-way foundation 3 years ago pa.  ang ganda sana kaya lang  allergic ako sa kanya.  after a few days lang, isang katutak na butlig ang tumubog sa cheeks ko.  >:(  i gave it to my mom, ayun super like nya. until now yun pa rin binibili nya.  ;D

ano pang ok na 2-way foundie nila aside from VOV?
Betting on both ends when the odds are close.

I've tried skinfood before and the the face shop, ok naman... fave ko yung lemon mask sheet saka pearl mask sheet ng TFS. i'm beginning to like korean beauty products kasi hiyang ako at saka mas mura ng di hamak sa japanese brands. I'm also going to Korea for a short vacation a few months from now so maghanap talaga ko dun ng beauty products.... hehe!

Mr. Ben Chan was the one who franchised and brought THE FACE SHOP, i do hope sya din ang magdadala dito considering reasonable ang mga prices ng TFS prods.. weeee...
