[ ♡ ] Goodies from Korea – Etude, Holika Holika, Missha, SkinfoodPosted: January 12, 2011
My friends arrived from their Korea trip a few days ago bringing back a goodie bag for me. Before they left, I gave them a thorough list of what I wanted complete with brand, name, description, Korean price, US price, where they can find it and a picture of the products (LOL, I know.) Choua did a very good job of finding everything for me. Here are some shots of what I got:
The goods arrived in a Holika Holika Bag but I transferred them to this aerie bag after giving some of the stuff to my sisters.
The receipts. I love the smell of a fresh Korean cosmetic receipt 🙂
2 packs of face masks from Holika Holika. There’s 5 in each pack so I have 10 total. Each set was only 5000 won which is about $4. I’m excited to try these out.
Some stickers with a funny little note 🙂
My most anticipated item: Etudes O2 white toners. I actually got 3 but gave one to my sister. I bought this when I went to Korea two years ago and really fell in love with it but didn’t want to pay the US price for it. It’s about $20 not including shipping and handling if you order it online but it was only 13000 Won in Korea which is like $10.50 US dollars so I just saved over $30 on three.
I also got a gel liner from Skinfood in brown. I got this in brown because a regular brown color like this wasn’t included in the smudge pot stila set.
The other item I was really excited to get, Missha Oil wipes. I got these because they’re super cheap compared to the clean & clear ones. The Clean&Clear oil wipes are about $5 for a pack of 50 wipes. Each of these are 2200 won and I got 10 packs. That’s about $1.75 a piece which is a great deal! They’re more expensive than they were before though. When I bought them two years ago, they were only 500 won (40 cents.) It’s ok though because overall it’s still a better deal.
I also got two cute planners!
And finally some samples. Some are not pictured because I gave them away. Samples are my favorite part of Korean shopping.
Getting all these things just make me want to shop in Korea! I’m so excited to start planning my trip!
