I am off for some errands this afternoon and I hope that finally this time, I will be able to find this face powder that my best friend from the US is looking for to cure her pimples. I've asked a few friends about where to find this and some of them said it can be found in one of those Maranao stores in Aldevinco or it can either be found in Bankerohan or some stalls along San Pedro St.. This looks like a one great task since I haven't been to those places for years now. The face powder we are talking about here is meimei powder, one that I have never heard of.
My research told me meimei powder is actually made of borax powder, a friend said it's this powder some women use to make their faces smoother and lighter. The sound of borax somewhat bothers me so I looked it up in Wikipedia and found out that one of its common uses is really for cosmetics, detergents or teeth bleaching to name a few. Knowing what it is I'm looking for I guess makes the task half done.
Now this idea amuses me since I also have sisters and friends who have been suffering from acne at some point in their lives and they say proactiv has been the only thing that answered their problems with acne. I remember before that proactiv is not yet available here in the Philippines so my aunt would ask my lola to buy her proactiv in the US for her pimples. Now, my friend in the US says she'd want me to send her meimei powder because it's the tried and tested most effective cure for her pimples and can only be found here in Mindanao. Different strokes for different folks. Now, I'm gonna close this post and off to do the errand.
