It was while looking for some way of buying dry shampoo in Hong Kong that I came across elusive mentions of Fanda Pharmacy on expat forums. A pharmacy where you could buy not only Batiste dry shampoo, but shampoo of all kinds, makeup, and skincare brands you couldn't find anywhere else. Posts also promised a great pharmacy with well-trained staff who could speak both English and Mandarin.
If you're as familiar with drugstore shopping in Hong Kong as I am by now? You'll think it's valhalla.
I found out there were (likely) two outlets. One, right near my office in Central and the other in Tsim Tsa Tsui.
Read on for my mini-haul:
Another brand I picked up was cheap and cheerful Freeman's. Both the clay mask with mint & lemon and the Grapefruit scrub have great reviews online and only cost HKD30 apiece. I've already tried the clay mask and think it'll be great for days when I don't want all the hassle of Himalay Herbal's Neem Face Mask, but could use a little help with congestion.
I haven't made a thorough comparison myself, but I've heard that prices at Fanda can be lower than anywhere else too. ^_^
To look at, Fanda looks like an old-school pharmacy I'd never walk into. Thank God for Google, huh?
