Last night I used the last of my Skin Food Black Sugar Scrub and it was like the end of an era 🙁
But let me give you some background information first so you can understand the significance of this trivial but momentous event for me. I grew up a tomboy – I loved sports and the outdoors. In fact, I still do love playing and watching sports, camping, canoeing, hiking and generally being active. But I was an odd tomboy in that I always loved makeup, nail polish and fashion. I own – and always have – way more makeup, skin care and nail polish than I truly need but it’s so much fun to shop for and use. In this area, I am a girly-girl 🙂
So when I moved to Korea, I was in heaven after I discovered Skin Food, Face Shop, Banila and the many makeup/skin care shops. They were everywhere! And they made good quality products at fantastic prices. I had only brought a bit of stuff to Korea but my collection soon grew bigger and bigger. I found new favourites and grew to love Korean cosmetics. When I returned to Canada, I shipped myself multiples of many of the products I had grown to love – including Skin Food’s Black Sugar Scrub. Unfortunately, I’ve been back home for almost three years and I’ve run out of my supply of wonderful Korean products 🙁
But I’m a glass half full kind of gal so I realized is this could be an opportunity for me. How, you ask? It gives me an added reason to explore as many stores in Koreatown (both of them) in Toronto as I can to look for some of my favourite products. If you know of any stores that carry Skin Food, Face Shop or Banila products in Toronto; please let me know!
Just before I was about to schedule this post (I usually write the posts the night before and schedule them for 10:00 am or 3:00 pm – my peak readership times) I found a website that sells Korean cosmetics called Momomango. And as I read about them on the site, I got more and more excited. Not only do they have my favourite Black Sugar Scrub but they’re a Canadian company/website located in Toronto! Super exciting. Unfortunately, the prices are Canadian not Korean but I guess that’s to be expected. They have several great Skin Food and Face Shop products – and they ask people to suggest new products they should carry. I’m totally ordering the Skin Food Black Sugar Scrub and the Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Cloths soon – after I see what else they have. I hope they also have Face Shop’s spot correcter sticker thingys (can’t remember what they are called – I ran out almost a year ago).
Stay tuned for new reviews soon as I explore this website and look for stores in Toronto that might carry Korean cosmetics and skin care.
P.S. Dear Momomango: If you are looking for someone to help you advertise or promote your site, my name is Cindy 🙂
