Epic Skincare Haul

Lately, after noticing that my use of Sooper Skeen’s organic Shine Bright Like a Diamond skincare set has so dramatically improved my skin texture, I’ve been on an organic skincare kick. Last week, I was at the the Great All-Out Sale at Metro Tent in Metro Walk (along Meralco Ave. in Ortigas) to catch Sooper Skeen’s booth and get to try out so many goodies I’ve been meaning to get. I’m not going to be using all of what I purchased – many of the soaps are planned for gift-giving this Christmas, but I’m definitely going to use the other sets I got, and more!
