What’s In Stores : What We Love From Dara Beauty Market + Exciting Giveaway!
May 7, 2017
For our second installment of our “What’s in Stores “ series, we feature Dara Beauty Market, one of our favorite and go-to place to find Korean beauty products in Cebu. We’ve already featured some of our favorite Asian beauty products in a past post and a lot of them actually came from Dara! Also, this post is even more exciting than usual because we are giving away EVERY SINGLE ITEM we feature here to one lucky reader! Read on the post to find out more. Follow us on Instagram as well to get updates!
Dara is tucked away in a little street right by Salinas drive and it may be hard to miss but once you find it, you won’t regret going to all the trouble. They have products from a lot of the top Korean brands, as well as some names that aren’t even available in regular stores here. Their products are also priced way less than mall stores as they go directly to distributors in Korea. Here are 7 of the products we found and can't get enough of lately!
1. 3W Clinic Natural Make-up Powder
This powder was recommended by our friend, The Beauty Enthusiast, and she has mentioned that it’s very comparable to many expensive brands. We couldn’t agree more on that! They even say even Miss Korea uses this herself! It really is the perfect finishing powder. Use it to dust all over your face to set your makeup and also to take the shine away. It is super affordable too.
2. Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask (Lime and Manuka Honey)
There are so, so many different types from this range of masks we had a hard time choosing which ones would best suit our skin. We found that the Lime (which promises clear and bright skin) and the Manuka Hone (which gives moisture to your skin) works out really well!
3. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
This one is a Korean cult favorite and it's no surprise why. It's a lightweight overnight mask that deeply hydrates fatigued and dry skin that will give you a lively well-rested appearance the next day. We always keep a travel size one (like the one included in the giveaway!) in handy for those red eye or long haul flights so you still look fresh the next day.
4. Aritaum Tightening Essence
In a handy pouch pack, this is also great to take on trips to tighten those pores and firm skin. This little pouch can actually give you 3-5 uses depending on the amount you use. We like applying this after toner or serum and before applying a sleeping mask.
5. Pig Nose Clear Black Head 3 Step Kit
We love how this isn't your ordinary nose pore strip and is like a mini facial for your nose. Step 1 opens your pores which allow for removing blackheads easily, Step 2 removes blackheads, and Step 3 minimizes/closes your pores. Perfect pore control in 3 easy steps!
6. Holika Holika Aloe Soothing Gel
This is the perfect time to arm yourselves with this product. With the sizzling hot temperatures every single day, your skin will need to be cooling down a lot. Apply some of these Holika Holika Aloe soothing gel. It also comes in the cutest packaging too (yes we are suckers for that!) Its travel size also fits perfectly into any bag for the many beach trips you will no doubt take this summer
7. Etude House Dear Darling Tint
This doubles as a cheek and lip tint and we are absolutely loving the color! We love that it’s so easy to apply and smooth all over your cheeks. Perfect for that rosy natural glow!
These 7 items are a great addition to your skin care and beauty arsenal and like we said, we're giving away ALL OF THESE to one lucky reader! Here are the GIVEAWAY MECHANICS:
