Back in Oct 2018 , i actually did a LIVE instagram video on the products i bought. Quite a shortone..about 10 mins i think. I find updating reviews on my instastory faster and convenient..so i probably reviewed on these 3 sleeping packs 1-2 months ago….
But here it is in black and white !
Here’s the sleeping packs i bought in Oct from Korea
Left to right : Dr Jart Firming Sleeping Pack , Vely Vely Sweet Rice Cake Sleeping Cream , Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Pack
Dr Jart Dermask Intrajet Firming Sleeping Pack
To be honest , i don’t really have much review on this though. I alternate my sleeping pack among these 3 but this is the last one i reach out for. I do not see much firming or vibrancy effect from this. But what i like is that it is moisturising.
I use sleeping pack daily. I have been putting sleeping pack to sleep DAILY since 2012. If i don’t put , i will feel very awkward and like missing something.
So these 3 are within my reach just right beside my bed at eye level when i lie down lol. So all i have to do is to stretch out my hand and take it.
I bought it during 50% event at Olive Young for KRW 16,000 .
Vely Vely Sweet Rice Cake Sleeping Cream
Ehh this smells damn good. Like kuey..sweet rice cake smell. Makes me hungry the first night i used it. Suddenly i have cravings for rice cake and asked my neighbour who is in Jakarta if she can help to dabao back from a Korean mart there. It is hard to find nice and auethentic homemade Korean rice cake in SG. The only one i know already closed down in Novena Square 2.
It is very moisturising and non sticky. It also keeps my face moisturised throughout the night ( i sleep in air conditioned room everyday ). This one is quite pricey. About KRW 32,000. It does not leave a greasy or oily layer after that.
This is one sleeping cream you definitely need to try !
You can only buy from Vely Vely stores or from airport duty free in Incheon. Gimhae airport don’t carry velyvely so you need to buy from the lotte duty free app and collect at the airport after that.
Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Pack
I bought this on the first day of launch ! The last box available and i got at member price because i am an aritaum member. You can buy Hanyul from Aritaum stores.
Wah this one also smells like Yuja. Just like the bottled Yuja mixture i have in the fridge. Very citrusy and refreshing scent. Hubs asked how come the sleeping pack i buy these days smell like food lol . Cos at night he can smell Yuja or rice cake. So it either made him hungry or thirsty lor.
Oh this one close fight with the rice cake mask. This gives a brightening effect. It is gel texture so easily absorbed without leaving a greasy film on your skin.It is also moisturising. This one very expensive. I think more ex than Velyvely rice cake mask. I forgot how much is this but i bought for KRW 30,000 after discount.
If you want to look for something light and easily absorbed , Hanyul Yuja Sleeping Mask will be better for you . If you prefer something heavy and more creamy , Velyvely Sweet Rice Cake will good for you !
Used up my Pyungkang Yul set in June and got my housemate to help me buy this set when she went back in June.
I started to love this series after i bought and used the moisturier last year when i went to Korea in Oct.
I bought the Toner and Fluid which i apply after my serum.
So my steps are Cleansing -> Toner -> Essence -> Serum -> Fluid -> Moisturiser.
Ehh..when i first used the moisturiser , i am not used to the scent. Because all the while i have been using Hera and other brands which gives a more derma or perfumed scent. Whereas for this Hanyul artemisia series, it smells abit like freshly cut grass lol. But it is very mild and i find it quite pleasant actually ! Smells very light and refreshing. The texture of the toner and fluid is also smooth and does not leave sticky feeling so it is easy to apply make up after that. It is very moisturising and i really like it. So this coming Sept when i go to Korea to fulfil my daughter-in-law duties during Chuseok , im going to stock up this and another series (Rice series which is pink bottle).
I love how this moisturiser and calm my skin without feeling sticky. It is also refreshing. Packaging also looks atas and the bottle is actually quite heavy. It absorbs into my skin quite fast too. I really love this!!! Suitable for Sg weather.
If you prefer something not so creamy and light in texture , the artemesia series from Hanyul will suit you ! You can get from any Aritaum stores in Korea. If i remember correct (how much i paid back to my housemate) , the toner + fluid set costs less than SGD 40.
Yayy im coming back to this place weekly 🙂 Hopefully it will continue haha…because sometimes when i was blogging , i received some messages or emails from clients and i have to stop and attend to them instead.
Last 2 weeks were busy week clearing some work and claims. It is also the year end where many clients will be reviewing their financial goals and directions and to prepare for 2018. And some bad news also…2 young clients were diagnosed with cancer. 1 of them is only 29 and the other is 35. 1 of them asked me to share his/her experience here. Actually i had done a #smartlady post but i have issues publishing it. The HTML seems messed up and whenever i try to publish it, there is always and error. I have to redo it again lol. It is a long story of me trying for a baby , some health issues etc which i actually blogged before my KR trip in October. I guess i will redo it together with my client’s story and share with everyone.
But before that , haha i want you guys to join me in the fandom for some Kbeauty products and IDOLS hahahaha !
Leaders Multi-Vita Cream
I use this as a night cream and i love this cream ! I can see that my skin looks clearer and more radiant after using this !
I have the serum too and my MIL bought for me the night cream. If you don’t know yet , Leaders is a derma brand developed by a group of dermatalogists from renowned Seoul University. So it is kind of like an aesthetic derma brand ! They even have their own aesthetic clinics in Korea ! So if you are looking for aesthetic procedures in Korea, you can try Leaders or CNP Laboratory since they are more commercialized and bigger and well known. Leaders masks are sold in Changi Airport but they are soooo expensive. You should just get from Olive Young in Korea or best if you know any one in Korea, just ask them to order for you from home shopping sites or apps. It will be much cheaper.
Texture wise , it is not oily and not very oily. It gets absorbed into your skin quite easily actually.
What i do is that after cleansing , i will go through my usual skincare routine but i skip moisturiser and just apply this night cream directly instead.
Hanyul is a brand inspired by the traditional folk remedies and medicinal practices carried on for centuries by women in their homes.
They smell quite organic actually. It does not smell very strong and abit like grassy smell.
I really like this moisturizer. It is slightly gel cream and does keep my face moisturized quite well ! wah i love this ! it is not oily and i do not need to wait for it to absorb into my skin for a long time before i apply my make up .
One thing i don’t like about it is that it smells abit like grass.
This was recommended by the counter staff and i decided to get this instead of Iope one. Frankly speaking , i don’t really like Iope moisturizers because they are quite oily and texture is to rich. Ehhh i cannot remember how much does this cost because i redeemed it with my Arituam VIP points. It think about KRW 32,000.
Hanyul has pretty good skincare products which you can try ! They are available in Arituam stores ! If you prefer something more natural , Hanyul is a good brand to go for. I really like their products.
Pricing wise abit more exp than Laneige lah.
Now is #Kpop time !
Haha i am officially a Kang Daniel fan leh ! If you don’t know who is he , you need to google.
He is the winner of Produce 101 and ranked no 1. He is a member of Wanna One which is now the MOST popular boy band in Korea.
He attracted alot of noona fans and haha im one of the noona fans. Incase you don’t know what is “Noona” , it means “older sister” . Reason why he attracted alot of noona fans is because of his
1) Appearance..looks like a puppy sometimes when he is off-stage but he became very charismatic when he was onstage..
2) his “physical”. Koreans use the word “physical” to refer to someone’s body line , height and proportion. Unlike other idols at his age where mostly are very slender , he has broad shoulders , 6 packs , big boned , long legs and masculine bodyline which i think was because of his b-boying (breakdancing). His mum made him do 100 push ups daily since he was young.
3) He is from Busan and he speaks satoori (busan dialect). Idols will avoid that on TV and speak the Seoul dialect which is the standard Korean on TV to cater to everyone but sometimes he will let slip and speaks in Busan satoori instead esp when he is nervous. He still has the Busan accent even when he speaks standard Korean which makes it really cute and manly sometimes and hence he attracted alot of noona fans plus he declared on TV he preferred older woman as a partner.
4) He is from Busan’s break dancing scene and is really good at dancing which makes it even more charismatic.
5) Mummy’s boy…he is very close to his mum
6) Humble and kind personality on and off screen. Which makes it very endearing. Sometimes he is also very blur. If you go watch the variety show “Dangeous beyond the Blanket” ..you can see liao.
All the above are some of the attributes which made him now the MOST popular idol in Korea. He was EVERYWHERE when i went to Korea 2 months ago in October. His popularity shots above BTS (Bangtan Boys idol group which i will blog about later haha). Since Produce 101 ended , i can see Kang Daniel everywhere in variety shows.
Btw , he is a Korean. His mum and dad are Korean but his original Korean name was Kang Eui Geon which is abit hard to pronounce in Korean even to Koreans . Even his dad has problems trying to pronounce it correctly. Strange lor hahah then why his dad gave that name ah ? So he changed his name to Kang Daniel.
Here are some clips of his dancing , speaking Busan dialact etc. Some of my friends are also his fans lo..If you are also his fan or becoming his fan , you can watch the variety show Master Key , Dangerous Beyond the Blankets and Wanna One Go Season 2.
Videos of him speaking Busan dialect (he is the guy one the right).
Videos of him dancing. He is a professional dancer and break dancer. He was a back up dancer for some singers before he became a trainee under MMO entertainment.
These videos focus only on Kang Daniel. You can see he is slightly bigger in bodyline and structure compared to other contestants in the Produce 101 survival show.
Haha that’s the end of Kang Daniel from Wanna One fandom !
This weekend is so pack…alot of Christmas parties and very honoured and happy that my clients are inviting me to their home for Christmas party. This year has been a very fulfilling year for me. I meet alot of people , learnt alot from my clients and also alot of new friendships made. My clients sometimes will tell me that they are lucky to have me as their financial adviser but im feeling luckier to have them as clients. They are very nice..i have no nasty clients..and we all can relate well with each other and most importantly , there is TRUST. It is not just about being someone’s adviser…but a financial adviser whom they trust. When i was sick (i fall sick quite often) , they even buy liang cha for me and cooked my dinner share (even though i politely declined cos i paiseh) when i meet them at their house for appointments late at night. Really blessed to meet all of them and they even referred their friends , family members and partners to me. I feel very touched by their heartfelt gestures.
