I rarely have “me time” these days, so when Saladbox invited me to an exclusive Skin Food SPA-rty a few weekends ago, I immediately said yes! It was held at Nail Cocktales, a posh nail salon along Tomas Morato.
Nail Cocktales pampered us with foot spa, mani and pedi session. Of course, the products they used were all Skin Food! I had a hard time choosing colors and these aren’t their complete shades yet! They only brought mostly shades of blue for some reason…
I ended up with this pastel blue for my toes…
And this electric blue for my hands…
Although I have to say that my mani didn’t last long, actually only a day long and then it started chipping off already which really sucks! I hate seeing chipped off polish cos I’m too lazy to remove it. I think the ate who did my nails forgot to put top coat, that or the quality of the polish isn’t good, I don’t know. But my pedi lasted long naman, thank goodness!
With my fellow blogger Ana. Great catching up with you! :)
Me after getting a foot spa! Ahhh super relaxing!
It was also great seeing fellow bloggers Bing and Jen again! :)
Anyway, after that foot-spa-mani-pedi session, there was a makeup demo.
Spot Ana Victorino in the picture above, lols! Hi Ana!!!
Here’s the after photo of the model. Nice everyday makeup look!
We also got to see some of Skin Food’s wide array of beauty products during the event. If you didn’t know yet, Skin Food originated from South Korea and its been in the industry since 1957.
They have eyeshadow, blush, foundation, powder, facial mask, lipstick, body oil, etc.
During the makeup demo I discovered Skin Food’s Queens Baking Choco Smoky Dual Brow — which I am so totally buying once I’m done with my Majolica Majolica eyebrow mascara! I like two-in-one products cos it saves space in my kikay kit. Btw, it’s only around Php700 plus if you’re also interested.
They also shared with us more about their newest product lines, one of which is the Black Pomegranate. It’s a skin-voluming line that contains black pomegranate to actively prolong skin aging and inhibit hyperpigmentation for smooth, supple skin. Another key ingredient is hyaluronic acid which instantly replenish skin’s moisture and fill lines and creases caused by skin aging. This line includes Toner (Php1450), Emulsion (Php1450), Voluming Serum (Php1835), Cream (Php1675), and Filler (Php1600).
Another latest line is this Black Sugar Perfect Fist Serum (Gold Edition). The mention of gold in its name explains the hefty price tag of Php1600! It’s a dual-functioning luxurious first serum that contains black sugar extract to soften and smooth dry, rough skin. The precious gold is added to promote a luxurious glow. It comes with a special cotton pad which I’m quite intrigued with cos it has a different texture. The SA said to use the cleaning side of the pad to wipe off dead skin cells and impurities, and then use the absorbing side to absorb surplus serum in gentle patting motions.
I got to take home this HUGE Saladbox containing, of course, all Skin Food products! I’m excited to use the Black Sugar Serum! I’ll update you once I see a result or something.
I’m not sure if Saladbox still has limited edition Skin Food boxes left but if they do, better grab one already! It’s only Php333!
Thank you Saladbox, Skin Food and Nail Cocktales for an afternoon of pampering! <3
