The Skin Food Arrives at the Palisades Mall

Skin Food Store

Every year I head to see an interactive showing of Rocky Horror Show with friends. This year we went Saturday night and Jai, my best friend, needed a few things for his costume so we decided we’d meet up at the Palisades Mall really early to grab what he needed.

Needless to say I was very excited to see a section of boarded off at the Mall which stated a “Skin Food Store” would be arriving soon. Seriously we have two stores in New York for the Skin Food, one on Northern Blvd (my friend Angel has a game store in the area and whenever I visit him I make sure I go to the Skin Food Store) and one in Roosevelt Ave but both locations (if you drive) are very, very busy and high traffic. It’s a chore to go to Flushing even though I head down as often as I can for the good eats (the best bowls of ramen can be found in Queens).

I think it’s way easier to head to Rockland! Less traffic, plenty more traffic, etc…!

It’s quite exciting news and I thought I’d share it with my fellow Korean skincare lovers and New Yorkers.

I have no idea the exact date it’ll be opening but I hope it’ll be November or at least by December!

Happy Shopping Skin Food Lovers!

Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Brightening Eye Base Review & Swatches

Tony Moly Panda Dream Eye Base

Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Brightening Eye Base is a brightening cream stick that became available back in April from Korean brand, Tony Moly. It’s suppose to contain pearl which brightens up the eye area and creates a luminosity under eyes.

Yeah, the packaging is darling to say the least as it comes in a cute little chubby tube shaped like a panda! Since Panda’s are known for having the worst dark circles in the beauty world they are used and abused a lot in Asian marketing to advertise brightening eye treatments, eye creams, concealers, etc….:)

Peripera Disney Frozen Makeup

Peripera Disney Frozen Watery Face Pride Up is a BB Cushion Foundation that launched with the Peripera Disney Frozen Makeup Collection in Korean a few months ago. I even forgot I had purchased the Peripera Disney Frozen Makeup Collection! I recently was digging in my review bin and at the bottom was this collection. Well duh!

Peripera Disney Frozen

Anyway….

I admit the sole purpose of my purchase of the Peripera Disney Frozen Watery Face Pride Up was the packaging.

Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub Review

Shara Shara Sugar Lip Scrub

I got this Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub in recent Memebox My Cute Wish List 3 Beauty Box. I’m almost as addicted to lip scrubs as I am to lip balms so I was happy to get this in my box! Memebox doesn’t actually sell it but I’m sure at some point they will. But a quick search and you can find it easy enough on E-bay for $5-$6 if you’d like to buy it after this review.

Shara Shara is a Korean brand I’ve featured in the past with quite cute doll packaging. As you can see the little tin the scrub comes in features a sweet little doll-like image!

Let’s take a peek!
