Im back and i miss this space lol. Last 1 month was quite hectic at work. Claims , meeting new people , going for my medical check ups and accompany clients for medical check ups etc. Started my day at 930am and ended almost 9pm daily and on weekends.
And finally i get to pamper myself with new products ! So it is review time !
Toners , body scubs and new BB cushion ! yay! Always looking of forward to relax and pamper my skin.
I was shopping for sauces and groceries at Sengkang’s Koryo mart when i saw this from PLU.
It was in my must-buy list when i go Korea for 2 weeks this coming October. I already added into my cart and was thinking of asking MIL to order 10 tubes from Lotte Home Shopping mobile app because it is cheaper but i paiseh to trouble her so decided to order from Gmarket myself and send to my MIL’s place and bring back when i go over in Oct. There is a discount (1+1 for KRW 14,000) on Gmarket. The one in Sengkang’s Koryo mart cost $14.90 per tube. Quite expensive but bo bian. I decided to buy 1 tube from Koryo mart first because i need a good scrub badly. I can feel my skin quite dry these days and i finished my old tube of scrub already. Going without scrubs for 1 month is quite xin ku for me because felt like got alot of dead skin and no matter how much moisturiser you apply , the skin still feel very dry.
Anyway this is a popular body scrub. It is also my MIL’s favourite brand. She introduced it to me 3 years ago. Previously was a brown tube. This purple one is the new version and more moisturizing.
The beads are pretty gentle and not very coarse or harsh on the skin. Skin felt very smooth and clean after the scrub !
Im running out of my HERA skincare soon and luckily, my Korean teacher went back to Korea for 2 weeks and she helped me to buy my new set of skincare products and BB cushion ! I didn’t go back to Korea in March so i couldn’t stock up my supply 😦
This October trip will have alot of shopping to do liao. I carting out from the duty free online and collect at the airport when i go back to SG. I go so much to buy and i think if i were to pack all in my luggage sure overweight cos most of them are in glass bottles.
I switch and change my skincare brand once in a while. This time i am using the brand SU:M37.
SUM37 is a reputable brand just like HERA. Maybe not as popular or well known as HERA , Laneige or Sulwhasoo.
Got myself a new cleanser. Need a whitening and brightening cleanser badly. I like this texture. Very foamy and rich.
Smell also abit citrusy but hubs say smells like Mama Lemon. Lol
It does really brigthen my skin and my skin looks more clear after washing up. Definitely will buy this again ! My skin felt very clean after that and doesn’t dry up the skin like other whitening/brightening facial foam ! If you are looking for a new facial foam or looking to try out new ones , i will recommend this one.
Price : KRW 27,000 from airport duty free.
I always wanted to use this after trying out a refill pack. When i saw this travel exclusive…of cos must buy lah !
2 main case cushion + 4 refills for only KRW 71,000 ! That is about SGD $80 !!
SUM37 is available at Tangs Orchard and Vivocity but it is very expensive in SG. 1 main case cushion + 1 refill cost SGD $67 in Tangs. Very expensive compared to Korea.
I like this cushion alot. It is very moisturising just like its name “Waterfull” and quite lasting too ! If you were to compare with the HERA black cushion , it is not as long lasting as the black cushion because black cushion is more matt and matt cushion are more long lasting.
If you are looking for new cushion , this is one cushion you can try. I will definitely stock up on this again. Not only because of the price but it is very good and suits my skin type.
Though it is called Waterfull cushion , it is does not give that super dewy and glowy look compared to the HERA UV mist cushion. This is semi-matt with slight dewy effect. Lasting power also not bad. This cushion was made to be long lasting in summer weather. So it suits our SG weather. Hehe it is also in my next must-buy list and already in my cart. Shall cart out when im in KR and collect it at airport when i depart from KR.
I also got the Hydrating Glow set but i have not try it yet. Going to start using it this week and shall review it maybe this or next week !
Hi Pei Ling! What base/primer would you suggest that gives a dewy look but also not too oily? 🙂 I’ve read your older posts back in 2014 where you were using the Hera Magic Starter, are you still using it?
Im using Hera Magic Starter but recently changed to VDL Luminizer.
