Beauty sightings at Hong Kong International Airport, ManningsSaturday, March 23, 2013
Hi lovelies, I don't know about you but I absolutely love checking out every drugstore/convenience store possible during my trips abroad.
Imagine my delight when I saw that Mannings (the equivalent of Guardian in Singapore) over at Hong Kong International Airport wasn't closed for the day yet when I arrived in Hong Kong at about 1020pm. Being a beauty enthusiast and avid beauty blogger, I went to check out if they have got any new or interesting beauty brands or products.
You know they say sharing is caring and I never forget about you, my lovely readers so let me take you on a virtual tour in Mannings store, Hong Kong International Airport.
The first product that caught my eye was - Kao Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask. I have seen these lovelies on a Japanese beauty website before and I was like, "Why don't they have it in Singapore?" Without putting much thoughts into it, I grabbed two boxes.

|Olay Pro X and Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Ageing Skin Care|
Did I mentioned that my Mom's like the biggest fan of Olay? She said she has been using Olay since her early twenties!
Next, I spotted My Beauty Diary 2 step mask as well as Barrier Repair mask. I also spotted some Korean masks below. If you look below, you will see Mask House Celebrity masks which was included in my Glamabox January 2013.
I didn't get any of them because I got 2 boxes of My Beauty Diary 2 step mask during my Taiwan trip last year. They are really awesome! Will review them soon. I quite like Barrier Repair mask, you can read my review on them here, http://sweetestsins.blogspot.sg/2011/05/mandom-barrier-repair-facial-mask.html.
I saw masks and more masks! Hong Kong's like a mask heaven! You will see what I mean if you check out the photos below. They have got 3D lifting mask, eye masks and even limited edition masks from My Beauty Diary. I always like to compare My Beauty Diary masks to Korea's The Face Shop. Apparently, they are both quite popular and most ladies would have tried them before if not the very least, heard of them before.

I also saw Dr Morita face masks there. I always see Dr Morita's products in Taiwan magazines.
Just a bit of background information for you on Dr Morita. Dr Morita's masks are manufactured in Taiwan but the technology is provided by JAPAN (TOKYO)-based company and its manufacturing process is supervised under the company in Japan.

I almost wanted to get the Cow Mu Tenka foaming wash to try but the thought that I still have got plenty of facial wash at home stopped me from doing so.
Other interesting products that I spotted.
|O'slee Aqua Medi Refreshing Hydro-Cream, ZINO Bubble Mask, ZINO Eyelash Enhancing Serum etc|
I also spotted this brand, skinBIOTICS Swiss which reminded me of Skinbiotics Anti-Aging Nutricosmetics.
Although I am going to be in my mid-twenties very soon (or a quarter century old as I like to call it), I am still very much of a kid at heart. Cutesy stuffs still very much appeal to me.
Check out the very kawaii (cute in Japanese) pouches below. They either contain gummies, sweets or chocolates. I was so tempted to get the Snoopy airmail and Little Twin Stars ones.
I think I picked up these lovelies in less than 10 minutes?!
|My beauty haul from Mannings Hong Kong International Airport|
I bought quite a few Mannings Lip Hop Hello Kitty and My Melody hand cream as gifts for family and friends. I also picked up Kao Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask and Dr Morita Moisture Essence Facial Mask.
After that, we were making our way to our designated gate to catch our connecting flight to Korea when I spotted this very cute signage.
I hope you like this post! Thanks for reading.
P.S: I haven't really been updating SweetestSins because I was really busy with preparations for my company's DND held yesterday. But make sure you stay tuned because there will be exciting posts coming your way!
