UPDATE: Interested in purchasing Skin Food products in Korea? Visit Korean Cosmetics Shopper.
Skin Food is another popular cosmetics (화장품 – hwajangpum) shop in Korea. It’s a little bit pricier than The Face Shop but they do have better products, IMO. The company is endorsed by actress and former Fin KL member Sung Yu Ri. You may remember her from the drama “Snow Queen” where she played the role of Bora, Hyun Bin’s character’s love interest.
I prefer Skin Food’s Mushroom BB Cream ($12) better than The Face Shop’s Quick n Clean Oil Free BB Cream. I love its scent and it has SPF 20. I also like their White Grape powder pact ($12) in 23. When I last visited the store, I also bought their Grain cleansing foam (around $6), brown eyeliner and peach pink lipliner.
I really prefer The Face Shop’s freebies. They don’t give as much freebie in Skin Food but it’s okay. I get to experiment with their make-ups (but Laneige still wins with their trial make-up counter). I just love that these two stores sell not-so-pricey items. I need not worry even if our cabinet knobs are broken and my son constantly play with my things. Nope, he doesn’t put on my make-up but he likes to open and close my compact.
