HanSkin Moolbalm (Pink) #Kbeauty


Wanted to review this quite a while back after i loaded onto my instastory and dayre but did not have a chance to because i was caught up with work and trying out new cooking recipes! Not really recipes i think..more like hmmm experiencing new dishes and cooking styles.

This is my favourite tone up balm (colour correcting) which i bought it when i was in Korea in Oct 2017.

It is supposed to help to brighten and even out your skin tone before you apply your Bb cushion or foundations. Some people use this alone like a bb balm but i use it as a primer before i pat on my bb cushion. It is abit matt so i don’t use it alone and coverage is not there. I apply this and then my DPC cushion.

HanSkin Moolbalm (Pink).

Hanskin is the first brand to develop BB cream and their BB cream really sold out.

Their concealer is very good too! It is called the Blemish Cover Concealer which comes in 3 tones. I reviewed before 1 or 2 yrs back. Now they changed packaging and came with free concealer brush at ₩7,900. The concealer was sold out in the colour “Bright” after some famous Korean make up youtubers raved about it. This colour is damn hard to get. Everytime i want to buy but cannot find because out of stock.

You can buy HanSkin products in Korea’s Olive Young stores.

I like how it brightens and tone up my skin before i apply my Bb cushion.

Because the tone is pinkish, not many people will suit this balm. Some people will end up with greyish skin tone. Just like how i cannot use Sulwhasoo’s cushion cos the cushion makes my skin looks yellow lol.

This balm comes in 2 tone – Shimmer and Pink. The one im using is Pink. Shimmer one is in cushion form and works more like a whole face high lighter.

I cannot remember how much i bought it but it should be around ₩15,000 .

If you are looking for a tone up balm, you can give this a shot but before you buy, try the sample first. You can buy from Olive Young in Korea.

If you are keen to get online, GlobalHmall in Gmarket does sell this. I blogged about the list of shops and departmental stores that ship to Sg few posts back. GlobalHmall is where i get my stuff too. Sometimes the deal there is cheaper than i get from store because there sre discount coupons. So i even get from there and ship it to my Mil house in Korea. Just that if i ship to her house i get free shipping lo. And i bring back home everything when i go Korea.

Cannot wait for next trip leh. I need stock up my skincare. 3 more mths to the trip and i already finished up my stock ups which i bought last year. Heng ah..Guardian got 30% off skincare products from 28th June to 1st July. I went to grab some from CNP Laboratory brand first to last me till end Sept.

Very happy cos i managed to dig out this from my stock piles of skincare at home. I was clearing and tidying them up and managed to find the last tube ! I finished 5 tubs in 1yr and gave 1 to a client last year. This is so far my favourite sleeping pack which i apply every night so i can wake up with radiant skin and my face will not feel dry when i wake up since i sleep in air-con room daily. Hubs cannot take the heat and our house must feel like it is spring..aircon wherever he goes lol. That is why our electricity bill so high lor.

Apply everynight before i sleep using my CNP silicon brush. The brush was for the milk peeling set but since i finished the set alr..i just use it to apply ampoules and sleeping mask pack.

My eye rings very bad from all the late nights these days. Not because of outing but because of work and Fifa World Cup.

My previous tenant recommended me this product because she said it was good and she had like sooo many tubes n tubs in her room which she uses daily.

Fifa World Cup 대한민국

It is the World Cup season and of cos Hubs is very enthu to support home country.

Days before the match, he asked me to get ready the flag which we kept in our wardrobe and also his uniforms and caps. He even got me a set for our pre wedding shoot 2 yrs ago so i also have to wear lol.

Though they lost to Sweden and Mexico, they played very well. Esp Son Heung Min who won a goal against Mexico.

수고했어요 대한민국 팀 !

Last match against Germany this week.

This Fifa, they have to play against the strong teams like Sweden, Mexico and Germany. Really not easy.

Korean Bbq (pork and beef intestines)

After watching “I Live Alone” episode on Mamamoo’s singer Hwasa, i had sudden cravings for Pig and Cow intestines bbq ! Apparently this episode created the “Hwasa effect” and bbq shops serving these dishes were sold out before end of day and many restaurants have long queue.

Watch the video and you know why liao. It looks so yumms. Even i was tempted

So i jio my KR+SG couple neighbours for dinner last week at Running Man Restaurant. The only place so far i know serves decent quality for this dish. Haha but quantity hor….veryyyyy little for the price we may lah. Not enough lor. Dont know is it too yummy until not enough cos we want more or really not enough leh. Lol

Still hungry after this serving. $79 for this and to be shared among 6 is too little lol.

So we ordered the fried chicken wings and spicy octopus+pig intestines dish.

The chicken wing hmmm not nice. So i suggest that you order the bbq better.

The intestines are really damn shiokkk. Not those you eat at Kway Chap store. But it is soooo fatty and sooooo chewy. So yummy. The 口感 is there. The cow intestines are the best. But of cos it lose out to the one i had in Korea. The one i had in Korea was sooo fatty and chewy , shiok and cheap !

I am now craving for pork skin 껍대기 bbq also . Maybe i go K&J butchery see they got sell pork skin not haha then i marinate at home and do our own bbq. Maybe if i can find the intestines too.

Hungry liao.

Attended Mr Shin’s colleague’s wedding last weekend at Empress Place. It was a very nice place and food was really good !

Reallt enjoyed ourselves. Wish the newly wed a blissful marriage !

Hehe our 2nd yr wedding anni is coming soon. To be honest, i forgot ermm date of our wedding. I got it all mixed up cos we have 2wedding dates ( one in Korea and one in Sg ) 😅😅.

Hmmm thinking of going for a good dinner. Last year we had buffet at Ritz Carlton. This year maybe same place if we cannot think of anywhere. Lol we both love the seafood section !

K-Shopping Online – Gmarket

Finally my toiletries arrived !

Now they are all stacked up in boxes on top of my front load washing machine!

1 year supply of toiletries. Buying in bulk is cheaper and easier for us to manage our yearly expenses on household cleaning agents and toiletries etc. So we wont be going for such buying spree every month and all the small small things add up tog can cost alot leh. So i usually stock up every June and Dec since June and Dec are usually the SALES period and have discounts.

This time it came in a huge box !

This time i shipped it by CJ logistics since there is discount. But they screwed up my first delivery…it was delivered to wrong unit ! Somemore left it outside gate.

Also funny leh. Usually Ems or Singpost will call me to cfm if i am ok to leave it outside my unit or shoe rack. But CJ one never call or text me. I just came home and got 1 huge box. Somemore my level have a common garden so many pple have to walk past my unit. What if it got stolen. *face palm* .

Saw very good reviews and raves on the Baobab treatment so i want to get it. It was on 1+1 sale ! About 1.2L. Damn huge. I think can last me damn long. I may give away the white one. Cos i think too much liao.

My favourite Happy Bath 축축 Natural Body Wash. Moisturising and smells good! Got freebies also leh. A body sponge and travelling facial care set. It was on sale. 8 bottles of body wash for ₩30,000 before using discount coupon.

Love this lotion ! Tried the sample before and indeed it is moisturising! Esp if u apply right after shower. No milky smell. But it smells like this particular wet tissue brand which i cannot remember. I cant remember how much is it in total but per bottle is about $9-$10 after shipping fees. Each bottle is about 1L to 1.2L .

I think i got blog about the discount coupons here few posts back or dayre. Cannot remember where lol.

All bought direct from the brands.

Korean restaurant 맛집 – Myung Ga

Hubs finally brought me to the place he frequent often with his Korean baseball mates after baseball practices every Sunday.

We have not been to Korean restaurants since we lived together cos i cook most of the time. This was one of the rare times we decided to eat out because i still dont know how to cook dishes like Jjampong yet.

This place called Myung Ga serves delicious home cooked taste Korean food. I love their kimchi !

They are more well-known for the Gimbab , Naengmyeon (cold noodles), Tonkatsu and Jjampong. So we ordered these dishes.

So yummmy. Price also affordable and portion is really generous.

Side dishes are refillable for free except the egg rolls. You only get served once.

I love the Gimbabs! It was served hot and so yumms. Reminded me of the famous one i had in Gyeongju – 교리김밥 Gyori Gimbab which was very popular and the queue wad superrrr long. I miss the food in Korea suddenly!

Hubs ordered Tonkatsu and he wants to show how generous is the portion so he put his giantic palm on top lol .

I ordered Naengmyeon (cold noodles). Omg it is so yums okay! I have craving for it since that day! The noodles are so chewy and broth is very shiok.

We jio-ed my gf along since she was alone at home. So she ordered Jjampong. Portion is really generous. This portion can share 2 pax.

Everytime we go to Bukit Timah, we have to stop by our favourite butchery – K&J butchery. We go there often to buy meat for our home korean bbq. Owner of this shop is Korean.

I have craving for this since the last time i had it in Korea and in Sg during cny. So…hubs decided to be nice and buy me marbled beef 갈비살 Galbisal !

We bought 600g which is just nice for 3 pax actually but Mr Shin is a big eater so both of us eat 600g. It cost about $45. Cheaper and portion is more than what you have in restaurants. So our bbq pan is a good investment !

We got 2 bbq pans. The big from Korea which we handcarried back and the small one can be used for steamboat or grill bbq by changing the pot and pan.

You need to volume up to hear sizzling sound of the beef.

We bought kimchi from there too because it was homemade by ladyboss and some onions and lettuce. Hubs was quite happy because we spent $50 for quality meat, lettuce and kimchi ! Hahaha eat until very full !

Mix salt + pepper and dip the cooked beef in. It is so shiok!

K&J is moving to somewhere near Tanglin. I think they are moving mid or end June. Ao if you are going, do call to check first.
