Seoul Skin Care and Make-Up Haul

One of the things that got me very excited for Seoul was the shopping. I've been an avid user of Korean skin care and cosmetics for years, especially after switching from the products my dermatologist prescribed. During my prior trip I hauled mainly Laneige products after the recommendation of my Korean foster sister when I was still in high school. Given it is one of the more expensive skin care brands, but anything that goes on my skin (and clears it) is worth it.

This time I wanted to stock up and try Innisfree, as well as new cleansers from Skin Food (as their Tea Tree Cleansing Foam helped clear up my skin a lot). I was also lucky enough to be there during Etude House's 30% sale, so I decided to try out some products that I never bothered to try back home. 

Reviews for the products shown will be up soon!

From top to bottom, L-R 

1. Innisfree Green Tea Moisture Essence | 2. Innisfree Canola Honey Serum | 3. Laneige Sunblock Aqua SPF 35 PA++ | 4. Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener | 5. Skin Food Egg White Pore Foam | 6. Skin Food Black Sugar Scrub Foam | 7. Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel | 8. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX | 9. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

In comparison, my make-up mini-haul is much more modest. I didn't wear makeup for about 2 years since I was so busy coping with requirements at uni and by this time, my makeup had all expired and so many new products have emerged. I was going to get more from Lioele after reading reviews, but it disappointed me to know that they didn't have a store in Seoul yet. :(

From L-R

1. Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pastel Upper Liner in No. 3 Mintade | 2. It's Skin Babyface Jelly Tint in Red | 3. Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Pore Primer Essence | 4. 3 Concept Eyes Lip Lacquer in Bonbon | 5. Missha Gel Liner Brush

These products were mostly purchased on a whim, save for Goodbye Pore-Ever and 3CE's Lip Lacquer. Reviews will also be up soon!
