Where I bought it: Nature Republic, 4th floor, Atrium, SM Megamall
History: When I went to Nature Republic and bought the Acai Berry essence and the Fresh Green Tea toner and emulsion, I got a few samples and one of which was a little sachet of this cream. I brought it with me during a trip to Tagaytay. During my stay there, it was so cold because it was raining about 90% of the time and the winds were so strong. I liked how this cream made my skin feel so I decided to purchase the whole tub! Samples are a good marketing strategy, you see. All the makeup shops I've been to in Korea were extremely generous in giving out samples. I hope the Korean cosmetic shops here in the Philippines follow suit and not just give GWPs (gifts with purchase) once you've spent at least PhP 500.00. :)
I've been using this cream twice a day for over a month now and as I've stated in my instagram post, it's my current favorite!
History: I got to know about the brand Leaders Insolution through the BeautyMNL website. I didn't know anything about the brand before that. Their sheet masks were being sold at a higher price than most sheet masks available locally so I got curious and googled about them. I saw tons of good reviews on their sheet masks so I put them on my wishlist. Upon waking up one fine day back in August, I received the usual daily e-mail from BeautyMNL and there they said that the Leaders Insolution masks were at a Buy 1 Get 1 promo! Ah, it was the perfect time to buy them so I did! :D

Product Origin: Korea
Where I bought it: SM Megamall Department Store
History: I got this about two weeks ago. I dropped by the department store to go look at another brand's lip tint but it was out of stock so I went to Holika Holika and swatched some of their stuff on my hand. Lip products are my weakness so, yeah, I ended up getting this. :))
