The Skin Food Cacao Hand Balm was recently included in my Memebox Special #45 Chocolate Mania Box and I was actually quite delighted by it. I was just reviewing the Body Shop’s Chocomania EDT and saying how much I disliked chocolate but I should tell you that The Skin Food Cacao Hand Balm not only smells like chocolate but oranges too.
Can I tell you how much I HATE chocolate oranges? OMG they are almost as bad as marshmallow peeps! But I do like the way they smell and The Skin Food Cacao Hand Balm smells quite like a chocolate orange!
I think the Memebox Special #45 Chocolate Mania was my first Memebox purchase and I JUST GOT it this week! I only paid $23 plus shipping ($6.99) and this one was a great box because it’s filled with 8 full size products.
All the items inside are chocolate themed as you may have guessed from the name and much of it was skincare in nature. A lot of my Memeboxes have one too many skincare products inside but I didn’t much so much with this box since everything smelled so yummy.
Funny thing, I dislike chocolate scented fragrances and such but I like chocolate scented skincare so I was kinda hyped about the contents of this box!
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!
Heads up Korean beauty and makeup fans as good news Skin Food and Tony Moly are now sold online (not in store) on Urban Outfitters online store!
I saw products like Tony Moly Bunny Mist, Tony Moly Bunny Gloss Bar, Skin Food Royal Honey Mist, and Skinfood Peach Sake Pore BB Cream.
I thought this was very exciting but wish it was in store too! The selection is small but maybe they’ll extend if things start selling well!
You can shop it at www.urbanoutfitters.com.
Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder is a loose sheer powder available in four shades that launched quite sometime ago and has been part of the permanent Skinfood Collection for a while now.
Originally I purchased the #23 shade to replace my Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder because I wanted something to set my concealer. Later on I discovered the awesomeness of Ben Nye Banana Powder but Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder had already become apart of my daily makeup regime.
