Whenever I see Koreanovelas on TV I can't help but admire these Korean actresses who seem to have porcelain like skin, wow just flawless! What could be their beauty secret or are they born with it? These are just some of the questions I have in mind. Fortunately I was one of the invited bloggers to spend "Me Time" with Farmstay, to celebrate beauty and relaxation as they launch their products here in the Philippines.
The event was held at Blue Water Day Spa Ortigas last October 28, 2015.
Indeed a perfect place to celebrate beauty and relaxation.
Finally, Filipinas too, can now have a chance to look like Korean ulzzangs (literally "best face") with the arrival of a new Korean beauty wonder in the country.
From BB creams, CC creams, hydrating sheet masks, cushion makeup, now they've come up with something even more exotic yet organic - snail slime.
Studies show that snail lime contains a perfect balance of proteins, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants which offer various benefits like stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. Elastin is the "rubber band" of skin- it makes the skin "snap back" to it's original shape after being stretched or contracted. Collagen, on the other hand, is a protein that supports skin, keeping it strong and firm.
Snail lime had its beginnings in Chile, when Chilean farmers who were exporting snail to restaurants in Europe noticed that the skin on their hands became extremely soft and injuries and cuts also healed quickly without becoming infected.
In the past years, cosmetic products from Korea have risen to the forefront of the international beauty scene making it as the Asian mecca for beauty innovation. This is justified by the majority of Koreans known for their flawless complexions that defy aging.
Did you know? Koreans have their very own-10-step beauty regimen which involves makeup removal, cleansing, exfoliating, toning, essence, ampoule, sheet mask, eye cream, emulsion, and night cream; to which they owe their youthful and fair complexion to!
Some of Farmstay's snail products are Snail Repair Cream, Snail Pure Cleansing
Foam, Visible Difference Snail Eye Cream, Moisture Soothing Gel Snail, All-in-One Snail BB Cream, and Snail Hand Cream. Farmstay is exclusively imported from Korea and distributed in the Philippines by McDell Healthcare Products, Inc.
McDell Healthcare Products, Inc. a Filipino-owned company engaged in the manufacture, import, marketing, and distribution of beauty, health and wellness products, encourages every Filipina to be beautiful as it offers unique, innovative, and organic beauty products that will surely bring out the best in her.
According to McDell Healthcare Products, Inc. Marketing Manager Nancy Pereyras:
"It is McDell's goal to bring Korea's technical advances in skincare to be more accessible and affordable to Filipinos as we bring Farmstay products here in the Philippines.
Unlike other brands in the market which are marked with strong scents, Farmstay products have a light smell as they are made with natural ingredients."
At the event, Farmstay's brand ambassador was also revealed, Ms. Lisette Lim Benedicion,a true epitome of beauty and passion. Lisette represents many young professional Filipinas who are career driven but still puts a premium on taking care of themselves.
"I chose to partner with Farmstay because I wanted more Filipinas to benefit from this beauty secret. I believe that these products that help bring out the best version of ourselves can help up in the pursuit of our passion." - Lisette
She is currently pursuing Bachelor of Science in Dentistry at the University of the East in Manila. She has appeared in various fashion and lifestyle magazines promoting awareness on the true essence of beauty with a purpose.

Now, Filipinas don't have to go to various stores for their skin care essentials because Farmstay, a unique line of organic Korean beauty products, will be their next one-stop to get that Korean ulzzang look!
The product launch was definitely a huge success, Congratulations Farmstay and Mcdell Team! I surely enjoyed that much needed "Me time" thanks for having me :)

I got to try some of their products. I started with the Snail Pure Cleansing Foam, Grape Stem Cell Anti-Aging Toner, Snail Repair Cream and Visible Difference Snail BB Cream. With just one use I immediately fell in love with the Cleansing Foam and the BB Cream.
It was very nice meeting some of my fellow bloggers at the event too.
