The skincare items so far, are awesome. They're a lot cheaper than Laneige. The Laneige emulsion hasn't been very good at moisturizing and the Pore Cleanser is making my face feel irritated, so I'm probably switching everything to Skinfood once I'm through with my Laneige stuff.
My latest Skinfood items included the usual masks and a new one called Bordeux (antioxidant mask) a Black Raspberry Eye Cream (wrinkle care), Milk Mania Foaming Cleanser and Apple Mango Volume Essence spray.
The SA went nuts on the samples. It includes samples from the Caviar Gold line and its foundation, Black Raspberry cream, toner and emulsion and Avocado Rich toner and emulsion. I'm starting to get a huge collection of samples. I haven't even finished using all my Hanskin samples either! So many reviews to be done XD
Insadong is a small street that's geared towards tourists. It's got an interesting old town look to it, cobble stones and brick buildings. They sell a variety of Korean items, things that you would find in a tourist shop. There are also cafes and stores that sell cute stationary and unique jewellery.
Of course, they had to have a Starbucks, which I couldn't resist going to. I got a tall Dark Cherry Mocha for 5000won, it tastes like a black forest cake, but I think the baristas added too much syrup because it masked the espresso taste.
Look near the top of the pastry bag, the 3rd picture to the right. It's a picture of a bum! It tells a little story of how these pastries came to be.
It's shaped like poo! Who doesn't want to eat shit shaped things?!? 1000won for 2 and they were quite tasty. If you've ever had the Hong Kong style mini egg circle waffle things, it's similar to that, except these pastries had sweet red bean inside.
Can't get any more touristy than this. I had to get a hug from her and a picture XD I don't understand the free hugs though. Does anyone know?
Thanks to Fei for leading me to my answer to why the free hugs! Check out this site.
