Since my blog is usually dominated with beauty or skin care posts for girls, I was quite relieved to share some news for my fellow fan boys out there. Limited stocks of the Laneige Homme Acqua Active Essence value set are available for only P1,800 this November. That’s down from its original price of P2,630 so that means you’ll get a discount of P830 (Wow!) Just visit the Laneige branches in Shangri-La, TriNoma, and Robinsons Place MidTown Mall.

As you can see from the CF I posted above, the Laneige Homme Acqua Active Essence line is endorsed by no less than Hyun Bin. For those who are wondering: yes he’s the guy from “Secret Garden” and yes, he’s the guy from “My Name Is Kim Sam Soon”. Hyun Bin has arguably one of the freshest and brightest faces in the Korean entertainment industry so it’s no surprise to know that he’s been using Laneige Homme for some time now. Just an interesting trivia, the women’s line of Laneige is endorsed by Song Hye-Kyo, who happens to be Hyun Bin’s ex-girlfriend.

The Laneige Homme Acqua Active Essence line has Kau Pe flowers that clarifies and purifies the skin from dirt and pollutants (we all know how smoggy Manila can be). It also contains Blue Argentinian Fairy extract that calms troubled skin to prevent breakouts. And because it’s made with vitamin and mineral-infused Blue Lagoon water, it really hydrates the skin. What’s more, the product line has this fresh and crisp citrus and green woody scent that de-stresses you when you use it.

This might seem too much for a guy but honestly, I think we guys should really take care of our skin more compared to girls. And that’s not just because our skin is naturally oilier than girls. We actually do more things that can damage our skin – we drink a lot (which I do), we smoke (which I don’t), we shave (which apparently can dry up and irritate the skin), we exercise (which also stretches and dries the skin), and we like the outdoors (which expose us to pollution and to the sun).

So call me vain if you want. But I have no intention of looking like an old man with wrinkled skin any time soon. (^~^)


Thanks to for the video.

  1. I bought Laneige Homme facial wash 180ml for 950 pesos. It’s great. I’m planning to buy the promo set next weekend to complete the set. Might get things even greater! Vain talk! Lol but I want to have the skin like Hyun Bin to get a Song Hye-Kyo look alike gf. :))

      Ha ha ha! I love the motivation! I actually think Laneige is better than some of the other high end products because it’s made for Asian skin. So here’s to hoping you get your own Song Hye-Kyo soon! ^^

    value set includes toner and skin?!
    tried their Snow BB Essence Balm and Snow Crystal Lip Gloss,.
    BB Balm really makes my face looks flawless!^^
    perfect for the “no-make up look”,.
    i think Laneige products are worth the price~

      Yes, Laneige is the best. I ran out of it recently and have been settling for the mean time with L’Oreal. It’s just not the same. I’ve had skin breakouts because of this. (T_T)
