Skin-care: What’s available?

I moved here pretty prepared, bringing along lots of ‘spares’ for many items just in case i can’t get them here. But there’s one thing that i left out, realised it only when i ran out of facial essence and emulsion one fine day. Thinking it would be available just about anywhere since i’m so used to seeing many brands in almost every mall in cities like KL and Singapore. Went around but i don’t see many brands available, so i did some findings and here’s the list of brands i’ve compiled so far.

These are the few brands available only at Hua Ho Yayasan.

Elizabeth Arden
Estee Lauder

My fav. item from FaceShop: The rice mask.
My face has been extremely dry since i moved here. So i’m badly in need of hydration mask. Tried many and this is the only one so far that has got some instant visible results. With just one application, my skin is more hydrated and supple (But the result is still not as good as the Adbo ginseng mask below).

Another mask that i swear by is The Adbo ginseng mask. Adbo is also under FaceShop, however, they only have it in Korea. I was introduced to this brand when my mom bought some back from Korea on a holiday trip. I used this daily for a week before my wedding, really helps on brightening up my skin and keeping it hydrated. Thumbs up for this product!
