I’ve seen Taste Central going around Facebook being liked or shared for some time now and while (I still think) my self-control in the spending department is pretty good, I could no longer ignore the flashing 75% discount alert on some Shu Uemura products. Taste Central, by the way, is a Philippine online shopping store which carries a lot of interesting brands one doesn’t easily find in the malls. From apparel and cosmetics to home decors, one can find an array of irresistibly unique finds. I didn’t just sound “endorse-y”, did I?
So I browsed through Taste Central’s very tempting discounted items but decided to just settle for what seemed to be the travel size of Shu Uemura’s Skin Radiance Set and 2 bottles of Dry Shampoo from Made by David Organics. Note that Taste Central ships only to Metro Manila addresses for a fixed delivery charge of P100 so I had to have it delivered to my friend’s house in the city. Processing and delivery took 4 days. Now a funny thing happened. Since my order was delivered to my friend’s address, I didn’t think to check if they got my orders right. So when Taste Central sent another box in my name to my friend’s house after 3 days of the 1st delivery, it left me wondering if they sent my orders separately. I couldn’t check out the contents of my Taste Central box so I had to wait until the weekend for my friend to bring with her my orders when we meet for coffee. It turned out Taste Central made the mistake of sending me the Perfect Poreless Set instead of the Skin Radiance Set in the 1st box with the dry shampoos. So the next box contained the Skin Radiance Set. In the end, I got two Shu Uemura travel sets.
Shu Uemura Skin Radiance Set-The set includes a 50mL Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil, a 30g UV Underbase Brightening Mousse with SPF 30 PA ++ and a 7mL TSUYA Skin Youthful Radiance Generator (which honestly, looks more like a sample). I’ve tried the cleanser and the rave reviews say it all. I’m very happy with it! I’ll be coming up with a more detailed review soon. In fact, I’ll try to review all the Shu Uemura products.
