I'm currently using Skinfood products. Compatible naman cya sa skin ko  :)

While in Seoul, hinanap ko talaga Skinfood stores dun. I was so shocked to discover na ang laki ng price mark-up nila dito sa Pinas. Grabe !  :o

yehey magkakaroon na ng missha sa megamall.. sana hindi OA mag markup ng price tulad ng skinfood! LOL

:p

Sis, true ba toh??? and when will they open missha daw here??? ^_^ excited. I love their bb cream.

And about etude, i am somewhat sure na mahal sha. Because in bangkok, super mahal ng etude. I went there thinking na the price is pretty much the same as their price in korea, but I was disappointed. I ended up buying just one product (pore erasing peach) instead of the whole set. grrrr

^ There's a lot to choose from sis.

For midlevel brands (mga 500-700 pesos price per item) there's Skinfood, Etude, Innisfree and my current fave it's skin (I love it's skin kasi derma tested and formulated but ang price range nya is still same as skinfood).

If you want naman talagang derma or highend, Laneige, BRTC, Gwowoonsesang are the most popular.

In between yung price range ng highend and midlevel brands are the brands meant talaga for young (i.e.) twenties na working women: Mamonde, Missha, SKCara.

In my opinion, best for whitening: Laneige
                    best for sensitive skin: It's skin and BRTC
                    best for hydrating and lifting: Missha, SKCara
                    Eye Care: Skinfood Salmon and BRTC (but mahal)
                    Oily skin: tie between innisfree, brtc

DHC is from Japan sis, RMK is a US Brand (and may I say, ang mahal nya ha!) but the owner of that brand , RMK, is a Japanese woman.

^ Hi Gale! Surprisingly haha ang eye cream na gamit ko lang is yung Skinfood Potiron Au Lait Eye Cream and it works for me. (Actually yung eye cream ko ginamit ko rin na face cream ning winter haha nagtipid eh). Wala pa rin lines and dark circles around my eyes considering 30 na ako and the past few months since starting TLC eh lagi akong puyat kahit ang Korean friend ko na-notice hahaha. But nagsasawa na rin ako sa Potiron haha, in all honesty gusto kong i-try yung BRTC Eye Vitalizer (mahal!) or Skinfood Salmon Brightening Serum pag naubos ang eye cream ko in a few months' time siguro. I heard good reviews for the BRTC eye vitalizer two kasi and I tested the Skinfood Eye Serum with samplers na, mukhang promising. Nga lang parehas silang mahal :( Samantalang yung Potiron ko 500 pesos lang .

babyjapnurse! super naman yun! tatlong 50 ml na Missha PC na yun ah!

Thanx Joeanne! If you will choose, which one from skinfood is better? the salmon or the potiron? My derma is suggesting I use Neostrata eye cream but it is so expensive (P1600!) so I want to try something below P1k first hehe :)

^^ Hi Gale! Hmm kasi nagsasawa na ako sa Potiron eh haha. But it really works for me and wala rin kasi akong dark circles pa (which is good kasi sa liit ng mata ko pag nagka-dark circles pa pano na lang? haha) but I am tempted to get a full jar of Salmon brightening as my next jar. Unless mag-sale ang BRTC nung vitalizer! Haha which is malabo kasi medyo rave sya ever sa K, so di nila kelangan ang hype sa product na yun. Pansin ko kasi sa BRTC, pag new product, talagang all-out sila sa pagpromo but once ma-establish na :( di na nila sinasama sa promo sets :( Sad, kasi di ko afford ang BRTC Vitalizer Eye Cream nila .
