Recently went to 1Utama while hubby drop by homefix to get some tools....I hopped across into Skinfood. Yey!!
I've been looking for BB creams. And knowing that Skinfood is among the brands that does have BBcream in its collection, i went to check it out.
Frankly, i never step foot into Skinfood shop before. I always thought that the price was unaffordable, and the shop never appealed to me.
Somehow, my perspective changed as i walked into the shop. The price tag was erm.....ok.....more or less like TheBodyShop. Plus, the concept is similar too....using natural ingredients in their products. Skinfood hails from Korea. And the reason why BBcream became the craze now in Asia is because of the Koreans!! They started using BBcream when one of the famous actress started using it to cover some scars. I've been reading and hearing about the rave of BBcreams...how it is a little short of a miracle to cover up scars. I thought to myself, i must try one of those!!!
So, without hesitating, i took a tube of BBcream. There were 2 shades to choose from and i took the darker one. I'm not exactly fair, but the darker tone still seem a little light on me. I guess koreans are really fair. To my surprise it only cost RM54.90. Kinda cheap for a BBcream. I was told that this BB cream is actually a combi of moisturizer, foundation and sunscreen SPF20.
I love the concept as with this, i need not slab on layers and layers of stuffs on my face. Only 1 will do.
I also saw the foundation and was rather attracted to buy that too but in the end decided to leave that for another day.
I also bought the Shea butter Lip care Bar. I took raspberry for a tint of color. I love this one.
On my way at the cashier, I took the nail color in lilac. As it was only RM8.80! i took that to make my bill cross RM80. :) Every RM20 entitles me for a chop and i'd get a free gift after 5 chops. 1 more to go!
oh...and notice the little sachet? its a tomato whitening toner. The sales lady threw that in as a free sample.
