Well, well, well! LOOK who just turned 1! LOOK, the online destination for premium beauty finds, is officially a year old. This month of October, they have a lot of promotions for those who’ll be part of their birthday celebrations! There will be free samples for every purchase made in October 2021, as well as free shipping with no minimum purchase required.
To those who may not be familiar, LOOK is essentially the premium sister brand of Watsons. LOOK is also owned by Watsons Holdings, but unlike Watsons, LOOK has an extensive roster of premium and rare beauty finds. There is less of a drugstore feel, but more of a fancy department store shopping experience when it comes to LOOK. The PR kit they sent did not include the brands I’m going to mention but LOOK houses SK-II, YSL Beauty, Fenty Beauty, Hourglass Cosmetics, Glow Recipe, Shiseido, Cerave, NARS, and Anastasia Beverly Hills. It’s really like flying to the US or doing Duty-Free shopping at the beauty section of an airport! Watsons already has a lot of our K-beauty faves, so what makes LOOK unique from its sister is that it has a lot of Western premium brands as well as Japanese premium brands.
Let’s check out some of the items you might want to add to cart at their website: https://lookatme.com.ph/
For those who have been suffering from dry lips due to wearing face mass all day, it might be a good idea to soften those lips at night with a lip mask. LOOK has Kocostar’s range of masks, and for those with really, really dry lips, you might want this pack of 20 Kocostar Mint Refreshing + Clean Lip Masks (Php1200 per pack) to really soften all those dry patches. I almost don’t go out at all, but in the rare instances I go out and use a face mask, my lips get dry immediately, so I think it might even be worse for those who use face masks often.
For those who are looking for a new acne solution, maybe it’s time to try Jumiso AC Cure Spot Cream (Php1280 for 15g). This has Phytosilica (to penetrate the skin deeply), Tea Tree (for its anti-microbial properties), Centella (to calm down skin), and Niacinamide (to fade out dark spots). This has a “no pain no gain” slogan n the packaging as the Phytolisica is known to give a stinging sensation for a short amount of time while the product is being absorbed.
Another Jumiso release you can get from LOOK is Jumiso’s All Day Vitamin Brightening and Balancing Facial Serum (Php1480 for 30mL), which has 86.14% Sea Buckthorn Extract for cell regeneration and 20,000ppm of niacinamide for dark spot lightening. This also has Hyaluronic Acid for deep hydration, Cica for calming the skin, and Chamomilla Flower Extract for bringing water to the skin.
Another skincare find from LOOK is Nuxe Crème Prodigieuse Boost Multi-Correction Cream (Php2450 for 40mL), which is designed to be a morning skin booster. This contains jasmine flower antioxidant complex to make skin more resilient against pollution, fatigue, and stress. This is targeted to make the skin more refreshed and to help diminish signs of aging. This might be the perfect pandemic find because everyone is so stressed these days. I actually just thank the entire science of skincare as to why I still haven’t prematurely aged in this very stressful and miserable era of our lives.
While Fresh products are easy to find at every Watsons outlet, you can always find your faves at LOOK. Fresh is known for their Jeju Aloe Ice range of products, and with the hot weather still persisting even now in October, cooling body products like their soothing lotion still make sense to buy and use. This can also be a good addition to the Christmas gifts you’re planning to organize! Fresh Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Booster Serum (Php399 for 30mL) might also be a good gift to those who are expanding their Fresh Skinlab colleciton. This serum helps to tighten the pores, to improve dullness, and to brighten the skin.
In case you needed more masks in your life, Kocostar has Princess Eye Patch Silver (Php476 for 4 pairs) which has caffeine and pearl extracts that work to tighten and the under-eye area as well as to brighten the skin. These patches also have hyaluronic acid for maximum hydration potential.
And for those who are into sweet things, you might also want to consider Kocostar’s Honey Waffle Mask Sheets (Php516 for 4 sheets). These mask sheets have waffle grids on them, which the brand believes can help in better distribution and absorption of the serum in the sheet. This honey variant is designed to make pores tighter and to contribute anti-bacterial properties to the skin.
Lastly, you may have heard of VT Cosmetics because of their perfume and toothpaste collaborations with BTS. But the brand actually has an extensive skincare range, and there is also VT’s Cica Care Spot Patch Acne Patches (Php380 for 30 patches) in the market! I’m glad that pimple patches have been popping out here and there in the market because they used to be so rare and so expensive. It’s now easier to get a pimple to heal and give up on me with the existence of all these pimple patches in the market…
Once again, a happy, happy first birthday to LOOK! Don’t forget to drop by https://lookatme.com.ph/ this month to make the most of their birthday promotions!
