My Korean Trip Haul~ Part 2: Beauty and Cosmetics

안녕 Annyeong~ 

Are you still with me? I have posted previously on my haul from Korea for snacks~ Did you enjoy it? :D

But what does Korea really famous for? It's the huge range of Korean cosmetics and skincare products!!! And when talking about beauty supplies, a must-go place is Myeong-dong!! Every corner, every turn, is filled with at least one or two, even side-by-side cosmetics shops...and you know what? In the same street, same brand can operate more than one shop :o Common brands found here including The Face Shop, Tonymoly, Etude House, Beyond, Skin Food, Innisfree, Nature Republic and other Korean cosmetic brands.

Being a girl *ahem*, how can I forgo to opportunity to stock up some beauty products too? Presenting you Part 2: Beauty and Cosmetics :D :D :D

1) Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel

When I saw the price of this aloe vera gel in Korea, I KNEW I HAVE TO BUY THIS!!!! One 300ml tub of the aloe vera gel is retailed at RM32.90 in Malaysia, or sometimes there is promotion buy 4 for RM100 or buy 2 free 1. Guess how much is selling in Korea? 4,400won!!!! That is about RM15, less than 50% of the price in Malaysia :D

Since I have been an avid user of Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel, I bought 3 tubs from the shop at the Hongik Station...and was given a free mask :D I think it was a very good deal!! If not because I have very limited luggage space, I would have bought a dozen back :D

My Korean Trip Haul~ Part 1: Food, Snacks and Beverages

안녕 Annyeong~

I'm just back from trip to Seoul + Jeju recently, and there are so many interesting things I wanna share with you all :D :D

Yeah, food are expensive (one simple meal cost at least 7,000won per person, which is about RM24~), thus most of my exchanged Won goes to food T_T Luckily almost all restaurants provide free drinking water, thus can save from there *happy*

Food aside....let's see what have I bought from Korea and brought back to Malaysia :D Hopefully can give you an overview on what to include in your shopping list when you visit Korea? hehe ^_^

As I drafted this post, I found it becomes too long, so I shall split the post into 2, or maybe 3 parts :D

Presenting you the Part 1: Food, Snacks and Beverage (yum yum!!)

1) Binggrae Banana Milk

If you like milk, then this is a 'must try' milk in Korea. It tastes sweet and creamy, with a mild banana flavor. The Binggrae Banana Milk is very popular in Korea and you can easily get it at any mini mart like GS-25, 7- Eleven etc, at 1,300won per bottle...if you want more, can buy at Lotte Mart Seoul  Station for only 4,120won (if not mistaken), per carton of 4 bottles :D I like the milk so much I wish I could bring back many many cartons back home! But because it's liquid and it's milk, checking in with checked-in luggage may cause the milk spoilt :(
