A while ago, my sister and I went to the mall. I was surprised to see that in the clothing section in the department store that there are few shoppers/window shoppers around, knowing that Filipinos are fond of buying clothes and stuff. So I thought that it might be because people nowadays tend to save more money. But, when we went on the beauty section in the department store, we were shocked to see that many people are there. Every beauty line/stall there was fully packed. That’s why I came to a conclusion that Filipinos or maybe other races are investing more in a beauty product rather than clothes/fashion. People became more vain in terms of caring for their skin and looking good.
As for my experience, I think it’s really true. Before, I do not really care about make-up or cosmetics, but now I’m totally addicted for caring about my skin and how do I look. I became fond of buying skin care products especially from a korean cosmetics store, which I say is very effective and affordable.
People, especially the conservative ones, say that investing in such things or spending on with such things is not worth it. But for me, I think it’s really worth spending with such things. Just don’t overspend and see what benefit you can get from such product.
