Affordable K-Beauty to Try: Rucy’s Vanity [Review]
I had ever since become a fan of K-beauty when I learned about the 10-step Korean skin care, and how effective it is in making your skin flawless, and dewy— what Koreans are known for.
Since then, I tried to invest and use all the most raved about Korean beauty products. Most, if not, all K-beauty cosmetics and skin care are exported to the Philippines from South Korea, that’s why prices get much higher and less affordable once sold in the market. In fact, I have never seen any powder from a well-known Korean brand that’s less than Php 300. Have you?
Well, not until I discovered Rucy’s Vanity. Does the brand sound new to you? Here’s a little background on them:
Rucy’s Vanity was founded in 2007 (yup, they’ve been around for a long time already). They offer a wide range of high-quality Korean skincare and cosmetic products for both men and women, and budget-conscious Filipino consumers.
By that, I know you’re probably expecting their products to be affordable. Well, wait ’til you learn how affordable and good-quality their products really are!
