1. Korres Natural Products
I've been wanting to try Korres since forever. This Greek brand has been around since 1992 and is known for their homeopathic philosophy and using only natural formulations in all their products.
I would love to try their best-selling Guava Lipstick, Raspberry Twist Lipstick, and Pomegranate Moisturizing Cream-Gel.
A skin-friendly makeup line that is free from parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, SLS, and gluten? I'm in! I've always been intrigued with Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush, Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse.
This is a fairly obvious choice since I declared so many times that I am in love with their certified organic Rose Hip Oil. I purchased my Kosmea RHO from Glamourbox but I would really like the brand to set up shop in Manila and bring in the whole line --- cleansers, hand cream, moisturizers, the works. I would immediately switch to Kosmea products in a heartbeat. I also started using the Hydrating Rosewater Mist (which I got from my Holiday Glow Glamourbox), and so far so good!
4. Soap & Glory
Known for their uber fragrant bath & body products, witty labels, and fun packaging, Soap & Glory is a clean freak's dream come true (that's me!). I was so lucky I won a large tube of their Pulp Friction body scrub (thanks, Julia!), and was able to score some products from my Sephora visit last year.
I would love to try their 3-in-1 Daily Detox Vitamin Facial Wash, Sit Tight Saddlebags+, and Glad Hair Day Conditioner.
One of the reasons I really wanted to visit Korea was to finally step into an Innisfree Boutique. The moment I spotted the sign, I pranced right in and visited everyday! Talk about obsession! There definitely were a lot of makeup products there but the next time I go back, I will most definitely hoard their Camellia Cream Rinse. I have yet to review it on this blog but it's one of the most moisturizing conditioners I've encountered so far. If not for its hefty price tag, I would choose it over my Pure Beauty Treatment Conditioner. Both have the Camellia Oil ingredient which is known to soften hair and tame frizz.
- Badger Balms -- just because I really miss my Badger Balm in Highland Mint. I used to hoard it in Rustan's back in the day.
- Josie Maran Cosmetics - skin care products and cosmetics infused with Argan Oil. Saw these in Sephora but the selection was incomplete so I didn't end up getting anything.
- Yes to Carrots - a super natural line made of fruits and veggies! 100% guilt-free and free of harsh chemicals.
What about you, any brands you wish would come to Philippines soon? :)
