Easy Banila Co. Skincare routine for Busy Bees + Holiday gift suggestions!♥

by - December 16, 2017

Annyeong-haseyo! ^_^ I recently just got back from my trip to South Korea and my gosh! It's one for the books and I can't wait to share with you all the fun things we did there and the overall experience. But that's for another post! :) Right now, I'm trying to settle back into my old routine, but I honestly still have a hangover from the trip cos I feel like I left my heart in Korea! Huhu, so I've been dwelling on all-things Korean lately, like food, Kdrama and skincare! :)

Speaking of skincare, I recently dropped by Banila Co. at Glorietta 4 and went a little gaga over their new look and packaging - pastel + minimalist - SOLD! ^_^

Banila Co. isn't new anymore to us here in the Philippines since it is one of the most go-to Korean brands when it comes to makeup and skincare, but they've recently done a brand overhaul and the all-new Banila Co. now comes in a sleeker, more modern packaging with a wider range of skincare collection - acne, anti-aging, brightening. But that's not the best part! The collection is not just for skincare purposes, but also serve as make-up booster. The newest skincare items are also now more affordable but still prestige in quality. ;)

Some of the Banila Co Collection...


The Dear Hydration product line is recommended to all skin types, but is especially formulated to cater to those with dry and rough skin. Its Urban Water Guard System consists of mint, basil and neem leaf extracts protect the skin from pollution, reduces stress and keeps it moisturized and free from acne-inducing dirt.


Hi Bye Clean Up is a product line formulated for those struggling with oily skin. It has a Pore Vacuum System and Clean Balance Complex which ensures that your pores are deeply cleansed off of pores and other impurities


The Hi Bye Vita-Peel is a daily vitamin peeling skincare product line meant to exfoliate the skin through 14 types of vitamins and AHA (Alpha Hydroxic Acid) ingredients. AHAs are derived from plant sources and milk. These ingredients chemically but safely break down dead skin cells, resulting to smoother and more youthful skin


The Hi Bye Soothing skincare line is made especially for those with sensitive and acne prone-skin caused by harsh external factors. It has Natural Protector Ingredients such as cinnamon, green beans and oregano which are known to have antibacterial, soothing and moisturizing functions.


The VV Vitalizing line consists of products which contain V-Collagen that firms, volumizes and lifts the skin to help you achieve the perfect V-line face shape. It also has brightening and anti-wrinkling effects to give you more youthful skin


The It Radiant CC Color collection includes different types of color correcting items such as spot concealers, color bases and color correcting palettes. These products offer solution to various skin tone concerns such as redness and dark circles


I almost never wear any makeup on a daily, so I try to make sure that my skin looks healthy and bright even without anything on. ;) It pays to start your skincare routine early. I'm actually a late bloomer, so I have a lot of catching up to do! haha! I'm also often busy, so being able to have a skincare that does all the work for me is heaven sent! Where better to start than K-beauty? ;)

My personal pick from the collection is the V-V Vitalizing and I got the Vitalizing Bio-cellulose Mask to give me that firm and silky complexion,  the Vitalizing Essence for moisturized and youthful skin, and last but not the least is the best-seller Clean it Zero - Purity for sensitive skin. :)

I only have time to work on my skincare at night, so that's when I normally do it. :)

By now, you can already count the days before Christmas with your fingers (9days) and that only means, you might be panicking if you still don't have a gift for your friends, family or special someone. But don't fret! Sharing with you some holiday promos from Banila Co!

Grab these limited edition holiday sets before they're gone! You get awesome products at discounted prices too! :) I want the Skin Brightener Set or Youthful Skin Set! More dewy dewy lang! Haha! >_<

Banila Co also offers samples if you're still unsure what products suit you best. :)

In any case that you really can't find time to pop into physical stores cos you're too busy or traffic is such a hassle, you can always go online, like Beauty MNL, Zalora, Lazada and Shopee to do your holiday shopping! Convenient, right? ^_^

Super happy with my hauls! Hope you can share yours too! :) Would love to see them!
