Beauty Related Goodies From Asia
Thursday, May 28, 2015
Hey! This is a "haul" post of sorts. While I'll do individual posts for the color cosmetics that I bought, I thought I'd combine some of these beauty products that I can't write a full post about into one giant post.
I love, love trying out new products and I found that I loved many of the goodies that I brought home.
TATCHA Luminous mask (review here), alas it was a bit costly for frequent use. The For Beloved One Mask is a very suitable alternative (about $13 per sheet on eBay) and according to the blurb on the Sephora Singapore website, it was the first biocellulose mask. My dehydrated skin also loved the Eight Cups of Water Mask, it was delightful skin quencher.
My friend Yoyo showed me this app called ZaZhiMi that contains Japanese beauty and fashion magazines for iPads! I've spent many hours poured over the pages of ViVi and Baila, I love looking at different brands of makeup and different techniques.
Do I look ridiculous?
Morgan: Yeah you do.
I wanted to try a different shampoo so I picked up a trio of haircare from the Korean brand Ryeo (stylized as Ryo on the bottle but 'Ryeo' by AmorePacific, the parent company). You can find this trio on Amazon or eBay, shipped for around $50. It's from the Anti-Hair Loss line, but specifically I bought the version for oily scalp. So far I'm really loving Ryeo products, not that I've noticed less hair loss off the bat, but because they give wonderful volume and my scalp feels really clean. It only takes a very little bit of shampoo (less than one pump) but the downside is that the shampoo smells more herbal/incense/smokey than any other shampoo I've tried. Husband says the smell is a little like stale cigarettes but it dissipates once the hair is fully dry. This set is the shampoo, conditioner and the treatment.
I'm pretty happy that I liked all the products that I brought home this time but it was entirely because I heeded the recommendations of my friends and family.
What are some of your favorite products that you can't get at home?
