I had to see what all the rave was about with this Mandom Express makeup remover. It is Express right? I'm too lazy to grab my bottle to read it. I thought it was 12000won, but it came up to 8000won at the counter. I got it from a Watsons (a rarity in Seoul) and I think it was a newly opened one so that's why I got a discount, plus a free box of cotton. I purchased the sebum formula for oily skin which works great for me. There's no need to really get into the review as this baby does its job. No oily residue here! My face feels mighty fresh after using it. I might even love it more than my Neutrogena Oil Free makeup remover.
Oh, I made an amazing discovery at this Watsons, they sell those infamous Shisem lashes that Pink raves about, buuttt, I'm too scared that I'll rip my own lashes which is why I didn't purchase them. They were 2000-3000owon a pair if I'm not mistaken. That's cheap right??
I made a possibly retarded or unnecessary purchase. I'm a sucker for products that claim to do wonders, like the Sana Esteny Detocrush Gel and this Pin Bon Buste cream.
Pin Bon Buste is a new product from Japan and it's supposed to be a boob enlarger/enhancer cream. I really don't think it'll do much, it's probably more like a firming moisturizing cream or something of the like. I purchased this at Kosney (super cute Korean store, think of Urban Outfitters but cuter and better) for 36000won for 150g. I knew if I didn't buy it I would regret it later. Someone's got to try it right?
Even though it's probably just a regular ol' firming cream, I still like to have the hope of enhancing my boobs. I'm Asian, I lack in that department...36B just doesn't quite cut it for me...TMI?? Haha..I'm 5'3 and at least 128lbs by now since coming to Korea so that explains a bit XD (and I only speak for myself)
I dunno if I really like it. It doesn't absorb like regular lotion, there's a slightly umm.. dry-ish residue, sorta like dried out glue??? Haha it sounds gross, but that's the best I can explain it. I can't over apply the cream or my boobs will end up looking like I just dripped white glue all over and it dried. There's a light fragrance to it and I can't quite put my finger on what it smells like. Kind of like cotton candy but not really.
For 36000won, if it's good at keeping my boobs nicely moisturized and smelling good, I will consider purchasing it again.
I just purchased the Sana Detocrush Gel today which is why I don't have a picture. It's basically just a thick brown gel with smooth round exfoliating beads. It's supposed to help break down fats in your belly, but I think it's just an expensive scrub haha. (23000won compared to 98HKD) See, I told you I'm a sucker for these products.
I went to Ewha Women's University station and there's some great shopping there, from cheap clothes to independent designers. There are makeup stores and cafes up the ass. Marion Crepes (from Harajuku according to the sign, also available in HK) is the BOMBBB!!! But I didn't feel pig enough to have it this weekend. Instead, I opted for fruit on a stick! These little skewers are candied fruit, like candied apples. They cost 1000won each and the fruit are super sweet and the coating is crunchy. The candy coating is strawberry and grape.
Here are a few pictures of my miniature food colletion. I have the Rement ice cream set, Japanese night food and bakery set. The rest are random pieces that I've picked up. They're very horrible pictures and I've added more to my collection since taking these. The mini fridge has a light inside that actually works...oooooooooooooh. I gotta take some more pictures when I get home. I'm planning to buy at least 2 more sets of food and some sets of miniature animals when I go to Hong Kong.
Every morning, I have to stare at them before stepping out of my room XD
