Seoul White Korea: Korean Skincare for Filipino Skin

If you’re looking for new and familiar brands for skincare and cosmetics, Shopee Beauty is definitely a budol haven! In there, you can score newly-launched products, exciting offers, or items at a discounted price, sometimes up to 90% OFF! 

One of the budol brands present there is Seoul White Korea. Their products live up to the high Korean beauty standards but are tailor-made for Filipino skin. They use powerful yet gentle ingredients to address your skincare needs. Throwback to maybe around 4 years ago, I remember hosting for one of their launches here in the Philippines! Good times!

Here are some items that you can try from Seoul White Korea:

Seoul White Korea Glow Serum AHA BHA Double Essence Toner | Get it for only ₱299

Double essence, dual layer toner that soothes, conditions, and calms skin. Has a powerful combination of AHA & BHA to purify skin, white strawberry milk to deliver glow-getting moisture, ceramides to fortify the skin barrier against external pollutants, and niacinamide to brighten and even out dark spots.

Seoul White Korea Your Starter Acne Kit | Get the complete skincare set for only ₱499 (Originally ₱577)

The brand’s breakthrough range designed to treat acne fast while keeping you protected from future breakouts. It features a powerhouse blend of cica extract, tea tree oil, and salicylic acid to gently soothe, nourish, and refresh oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin. 

These are clinically-proven, technology-driven and designed to nurture (not strip) your skin!

Seoul White Korea Bye Bye Acne AHA-BHA-PHA Serum Toner | Get it for only ₱299

Gently exfoliates, minimizes pores, controls oil, and lightens blemishes for a bright and clear glow. AHA + BHA+PHA sweep away dead skin cells and debris, while salicylic acid, tea trea, and cica extract soothe skin and prevent breakouts. Moisturizers and niacinamide work their magic to leave a nourished and glowing finish.

Ready for the Outdoors with MetroSunnies™

Sunglasses remind me of so much fun outdoor moments and travels! Longing for that day when we can go back to the beach freely, or just walk around the park without worrying about health and safety. But for now, keeping my MetroSunnies™ stash until that day comes!

Make sure to have yours ready, too! MetroSunnies™ will be joining the 8.8 Mega Flash Sale on Shopee and they’ve got so many nice offers! MetroSunnies™ is one of my trusted brands because of product quality and great styles!

This is called the Gianni (Rose Gold) which has Con-Strain™ PRO Photochromic lens that adapts well to your environment. It darkens when exposed under the sun, giving you UV400 protection, and will turn back to its clear / primrose color when you’re indoors. Best part? It also has blue light protection!

Also so funny that they have this Comb slash meme-like sunnies as a limited edition novelty item. It’s something you could wear during your online calls as an icebreaker or keep it ’til halloween to add in your costume. Haha!

Antiradiation Glasses from Peculiar Eyewear

Spending too much time on electronic devices like mobile phone and laptops can lead to problems like eyestrain, dry eyes, blurry vision, and more. But as we know, it's so hard to stay away from these gadgets for work, communication, and entertainment. With that, we just have to make sure we’ll be able to have a nice layer of protection for our eyes.

Got introduced to Peculiar Eyewear around 2 years ago at an event, and I got really impressed with the benefits that you can get from wearing their glasses. Aside from great styles and frames, Peculiar Eyewear has a certification for UV400 and has a BlueLight blocking technology.

Just recently, I got my hands on the Peculiar x Ces.Style Classy Baby SILVER TransitionPRO Antiradiation which promises the SafeShield and BlueShield protections. It also has Photochromic Lens which means you can enjoy the clear lens indoors, while getting optimum protection as sunnies outdoors.

The box comes with a protective case, microfiber wiper, and harmful light tester so you can check the quality on your own! Tried it myself! Pointed the blue light onto the card/checker, one side with the glasses and the other without. My golly, the difference!

You can order yours from Shopee, especially this August 8, as Peculiar Eyewear goes up to 85% OFF on the 8.8 Mega Flash Sale! Don't miss this!
