Hi everyone! I have missed you all so much! Where did the last three weeks go?! They just flew by, without leaving me a moment to blog. Aside from my makeup artistry class, I also started a new side job which has been taking up most of my free time. I'm really sorry I just disappeared but I simply didn't have the time. Please forgive me? I will try to make time for blogging. *fingers crossed*
Moving on...as you may already know, SkinFood is one of the most popular affordable skin care brands in Korea. Aside from being very affordable (as in drugstore prices; each item below cost less than $20 USD), they have really cute packaging for all their many skin care lines, the most popular of which is probably the Peach Sake line. I have tried some of their products, which have varied between hit-or-miss for me, but I just couldn't resist the attractive pricing and packaging while I was in Korea.
Without further ado, I present to you my SkinFood haul!
As you can see, they gave me tons of samples! In my experience, SkinFood definitely has the best "service" (the samples are referred to as free "service" in Korea).
Samples samples samples!! or Service service service!!
I went specifically searching for the SkinFood Royal Honey Hydro Cream, since my skin type is dry, especially during the winter.
Doesn't the packaging look so nice? I also got the SkinFood Royal Honey Hydro Essence.
So far, the weather here has been moodily shifting between cool and very warm, which has made my skin dry-combination. Therefore using both the essence and cream on some days leaves my face rather oily, so I have to adjust each day between using only the essence, or essence with light dabs of cream (avoiding my t-zone). I definitely don't recommend the cream for oily skin types.
I've been concerned about the appearance of my eyes (ugh, dark circles, bags, fine lines, you name it) so I opted for the SkinFood Royal Honey Eye Cream, which claims to have anti-wrinkle effect. I haven't used this yet though.
This SkinFood Royal Honey Nutrition Cream also claims to have anti-wrinkle effect. Can you tell I don't want to look old?! I plan on using this after I've finished the Honey Hydro Cream.
So now you know...I have enough skin care to last me for quite a while, hehe. Skin care is really important to me though, especially since my skin is dry so I'm always trying to make sure it stays hydrated. I was not blessed with perfect skin so I put a lot of effort into just making it at least look and feel normal.
I also picked up the SkinFood Milk Smooth Hand Cream, SkinFood Shea Butter Hand Lotion, and SkinFood Sugar Hand Cream. I use hand cream every time I wash my hands, so I know I can go through them somewhat quickly. The Milk Smooth Hand Cream was not what I'd expected. The texture reminded me of petrolatum and it didn't smell like milk, but reminded me more of rice water. The Sugar Hand Cream is rather sticky and also resembles petrolatum, but perhaps a thicker version. Of the three, I prefer the Shea Butter Hand Lotion the most.
Of course, I had to pick up some boxes of sheet masks. I got the SkinFood Hydro Fitting Yeast Masks (pore care), SkinFood Hydro Fitting Seaweed Masks (soothing), and SkinFood Hydro Fitting Snail Masks (hydration). Yes, I am now well stocked on masks.
I also got the SkinFood Black Sugar Mask (wash off type). I've used this before and I think it not only smells good, but it makes my skin look more fresh and radiant, as well as softens it.
Lastly, I picked up the SkinFood Coffee Body Scrub. I really love this! It's nice and gritty, but neither too fine nor too coarse. It smells good, although truthfully it smells a bit like bananas to me (maybe I'm just weird). It feels similar to the Black Sugar Mask in that it is moisturizing and non-drying. Best of all, this only cost about $8 USD!
That's it for my SkinFood haul! I will try to blog at least once a week from now on. I have so, so much that I want to blog about! It does make me a little sad that I haven't been able to, and I know from now until the holidays I will only be more and more busy. I hope you can be patient with me as I will try my best, but of course, priorities come first and take up the majority, if not all, of my time.
I hope you have a great weekend and early Happy Halloween!!
