Korean Grocery Finds

Hello there!

Been so busy with work that I rarely find time to raid Watson's (I KNOOOOOOOW) and even have a pedicure regularly. I am so filing for a vacation leave this November as a birthday treat to myself.

After my September 29 shift, for some reason, instead of going to Army Navy with the boyfriend I finally gave in to my curiosity and checked out Sonamoo in Ortigas. To those wondering, it is a Korean grocery. It's basically a convenience store, but, it has a meat section and a shelf (not an aisle, just a shelf) that's full of curious finds.

There was a BB Cream that was less than Php200. But since I still have Olay at home, I decided against it. Was tempted to get a bottle of nail polish in candy colors since it's only Php80 per bottle, but I was able to restrain myself. I bought two Dermal Collagen Essence facial masks for only Php25 each and a bottle of nail polish remover for Php60.




I used the Vitamin C mask that same night and I must say, just like Etude House's Moistfull Collagen Mask, it is DRENCHED in collagen goodness. The instructions on the pack says that it is highly recommended that you chill the product during the summer or heat it during the winter. But since it was a balmy night (with typhoon Quiel brewing on the horizon), I opted for the cold version.

LOVE. IT.

It was also suggested not to wash off the product after use. Hence the reason why you need to thoroughly clean your face.

Perhaps it was just me or the fact that I just finished a 14-hour workday, but I woke up the next morning with glowing skin. So, I guess for Php25 it does revitalize tired and dull skin.
