Here are some of the products i bought from Korea besides the Missha masks.
Many requested for a blogpost on it so here you go !
The Aquabolic range from Hera. I have 2 types of cleansing foam – White Program and the one below. So , i piled on these products on my face everyday !
1) Cleansing foam
2) Moisturizing water (Toner)
4) Eye Waterin Roller
6) Radiance serum
Sounds alot but it is neccessary.
I fell in love with it after using the testers for a week before i buy the full set. Hera is very generous with the testers. Ive got ALOT of tester and even gave me 5 White Program masks. Of cos , the first time i asked for testers, they gave me a set which last me almost one week. But when i bought the entire set , they gave even more. Mr Park’s omma helped me get one set from her friend who works at HERA. And her friend gave me 100 sachet of the radiant serum samples and 100 sachets of the White Program Bioeffector samples so that i can save up to SGD 200 ! It is almost $100 per bottle. OH YEAH !
My review on this product :
I like how it feels less “Greasy” or “Oily” compared to the laneige one. Plus it smells really nice. Pricing wise is almost similar to that of Laneige. The products are easily absorbed by my skin so i do not need to wait for 5-10 minutes before putting on my make up. My complexion indeed looks clearer and more radiant after using it for 1 month. The products are moisturizing and at the same time the ingredients help to give you clear and radiant skin. Oh i love the CC cream too. Makes my skin looks pinkish instead of whitish . I bought the one in Pink Beige tone. The entire set below minus the sachets cause about $250 and given that they are 120ml – 200ml , it will probably last me 3.5 months.
So , i use ONE sachet a day .
I love this shampoo brand too because it smells good and i like the one in gold/yellow bottle ! Mr Park’s sister bought for me this hair essence as a farewell gift and a set of nail polishes. You can buy this brand of shampoo or serum and essences at any supermarket in Korea. It cost about SGD $11-$12.
I saw a shop in Bishan North Shopping Mall which is opposite my house selling the shampoo at $36 and the sales girl / boss told me it is a “Salon brand” and “expensive brand and very expensive in Korea”. You want to sell something to people but dont exaggerate so much. Just say that it is a very good shampoo is enough.
But well , you can buy a tall 400ML bottle at 3 for SGD$16 at Emart in Korea during their sales. During non sales period , it costs SGD$10 per 400ml bottle !
I bought this mask from Emart too It is from Mamonde. Finally found this brand because i dont see its boutiques. It is about SGD$23. It is in a capsule form and it helps to moisturize your skin and also for slight whitening. I will say that it doesnt whiten my face at all but it helps to moisturize and can see that the face looks clear in the morning.
I kinda like it because it is less “greasy”. I am still using the Water Sleeping Pack from Laneige as well as this one from Mamonde.
It is in capsule form so it is really hygienic instead of dipping your fingers into the bottle and apply onto your face. Some people may not like the texture because it feels like “glue” but haha dont worry , it doesnt smell like one. There is a white and pink bottle. I bought the pink one to keep in SG and kept the white one in Korea so that i do not need to carry SOOOO many things over for my next trip. Almost 1/3 of my luggage are beauty products which i cant leave without for any trip !
And yes , Missha was having sales and one mask cost $1
Of cos i brought some for myself. I still have not used finished the 100 packs that he got for me previously.
I cant wait for my next trip.
I felt very empty here. I tried to catch up with my friends whom i have not met for very long time and try to hang out. But everyone was soo busy with work ( my work time is flexible ) . So most of the time , i woke up and have my brunch at 10am .Then i go to work or events/food tastings/meetings/photoshoots and back home for dinner before i go for a jog/walk downstairs near Bishan Active. Go back home , have a good bathe before i skype with Ah Park and then go to bed. That was what i have been doing for the past 4 days though. Very mundane and im cant wait for my next trip to Korea. Going to Korea often means that i have to control my budget and spending. So now , i just concentrate on my work and try to stay home and eat at home. Heng ah….nothing to buy in Autumn and Winter so i get less tempted even though they are selling cheap autumn and winter clothes. Im like becoming a personal shopper for my friends. But this Autumn and Winter trip , i just wanna spend good quality time because it will only be 2 weeks stay. But still , i have to work. Usually when i wake up before going out for lunch and after i come back home at night till the wee hours. Very tiring but im always looking forward to weekend for a good sleep and rest.
Just finished a long shoot yesterday and one more tomorrow.
Back to my weekly routine !
