Hi. Sasa provides many brands such as lancome, Shiseido, Anna Sui, etc.

I personally like Ren Guang Do. I tried their Camellia Cleansing Oil, and liked it. Their Camellia oil is my HG. I bought a bunch of O'slee's products, but they're originally from Paris.

I'll say go for brands already well-established (i.e. usually with a website :P) or brands made in Japan and Korea (I find that even if the brands are local japanese brands that one usually does not hear of, the quality is still there). Alternatively there's 2 south-east asian brands I've tried that are not too bad:

Vitasense from Singapore
www.vitasence.com

Nardia from Singapore/Malaysia

Sasa doesn't sells only Asian brands alone. They sell alot of European brands, and a few Austrailian brands too.


Here's a list of what I like for skincare:
NATIO (AUSTRAILIA)
CATENA (JAPAN)
-their masks really deliver what it said to do
REN GUANG DO (HK)
O'SLEE (FRANCE)
SILK WHITIA (JAPAN)
-their cloth is excellent if you like to use a cloth to cleanse your skin.
BSC (HK)
MENTHOLATUM (JAPAN)
-drugstore brand, this is from the same company that creates OXY
BIOSCREEN (VARIES)




For cosmetics, I like:
SHU UEMURA (JAPAN)
PALGANTONG (KOREA)
MAMONDE(KOREA)
COLOR ZONE (HK)
FANCL (JAPAN)
-this is great for sensitive skin!

I've seen Palgantong powder featured in lots of Japanese mags, and the girls have such flawless radiant skin. I was wondering if you've tried it. Very tempted to order.

All the asian brands i've tried, i like Shu Uemura the most. Unfortunately, i dont' like Shiseido that much. Always had some problem with their product. Oh except, the cream blush stick. Very Happy Very Happy

Yea, I've tried it. It does give you superstar looking skin. You know...the kind that glow and look so flawless in pictures? Laughing . There's talc in there though, so if you don't use talc, it's not a good buy. I find it's not drying and actually is very comfortable on skin throughout the day.

The Theatrical one is the sheer matte loose powder. It's very sheer. This powder gives you the illusion of clean, bright, and smooth skin. It doesn't cover anything like blemish. You'll need to moisturize well for it if you have dry skin. The Pearl is for the radiant look. I HTH!

Do you still need to use foundation or other powder under Palgantong powder?

Palgantong is a loose powder. It's not a foundation powder so if you need more coverage, you might want to use foundation or concealer. If you have oily skin, you can try silk powder underneath or mix it with Palgantong powder to make it last longer. I like to use Palgantong alone, especially when I have almost perfect looking skin to emphasis the goodness Laughing .

Poohlisey, have you tried the Palgantong Pearl Powder? If you have, how does it compare to the loose powder? Is it more "glowy"?

Yea, it's more glowy than the loose powder. If you have really dull skin, you can use that alone. If you have normal skin, I think it's best to use it as a shimmer powder to accentuate your features like the nose, eyes, jawline, etc.... I HTH! Smile

Fancl is a pretty good brand. their mild cleansing oil is rave about by many ladies. price wise, its not too pricey at all. worth trying out.

Shiseido & Ipsa skincare are pretty good as well but they tends to cost more.

They don't seem to have the Palgantong Theatrical powder Sad They only got the pink pearl powder and the SPF 19 powder. Did anyone try either one? What exactly does the pink pearl powder do? It gives u a glow? And what about the SPF 19 one? What's the effect of it? I know I asked too much but if anyone knows, pls let me know, thanks! Very Happy
