Ecobeau Blemish Balm BB Cream Natural Korean skincare from

If you like Korean skincare and makeup products, or you like using BB cream, then this shop feature on is definitely going to interest you. The company offers some of these popular Korean skincare and beauty products but the chief reason why I’m covering them is because the company is the exclusive distributor for Ecobeau Specialist Skincare – a natural series from Korea that is said to be made from botanical extract and contains no alcohol, no preservatives and no parabens. While I haven’t tried the range as yet, but I thought the products deserve some highlight here. Plus, TheOrangeCo is generously giving away some of the products to three lucky Viva Woman readers.

SuperNature: one-stop organic lifestyle store

SuperNature Organic Store SuperNature: one stop organic lifestyle store

It was quite a hot afternoon when I visited SuperNature, a store located at Park House, a condominium in Orchard Boulevard. I had great difficulty locating the place and finally arrived like half an hour later than scheduled perspiring from the heat and as you’ve guessed it, feeling quite flustered. In fact, I almost wanted to give up half way but good thing I didn’t, because my moods were lifted as soon as I saw the many rows of natural and organic skin care products in the 4,500 square feet store. Honestly, I was only expecting a small selection of beauty products in the organic store especially since the website wasn’t that telling and the focus seems to be on food and groceries…so boy was I surprised!

Kiehl’s: The apothecary with an eco heart

Kiehls Kiehls: The apothecary with an eco heart

I wouldn’t consider Kiehl’s to be a natural and organic company, although they have recently launched the Acai Berry Damage-Repairing Organic Skincare range. However, I like the company because they strike me as one that provides eco-effective quality products focused on efficacy without the embellishments. On top of that, they are probably one of the few who truly incorporate socially responsible manufacturing practices in their business operations.

Natural & organic nook at Chinatown

It may have been two years since I last stepped foot in Dragon Dors Cosmetics at People’s Park Complex in Chinatown. This is the store I first got hold of Burt’s Bees products and perhaps the one that got me more interested in natural and organic skin care products. The store is like your neighborhood shop and is owned by a mother and son team, Anna and Sunny, the latter who reminded me so much of one of the members of Mayday (五月天), Taiwan’s no. 1 rock group with his long tresses and tatoos.
