I'm a bit worried I'll be lagging with the posts when I go home since I don't have such an easy access to Asian skincare/makeup items.
I have one little item that I want to show you before I continue babbling nonsense.
About a month ago I was on the hunt for an eyecream. I didn't want to splurge on anything yet so I went to Skinfood to see what they had.
I can't remember all the formulas that were available so you'd have to check it out on the Skinfood website.
I noticed I've had itty bitty wrinkles under my eyes for a while now so I got the Black Raspberry Eye Cream for wrinkles. I'm not too sure what the Korean blurb on the jar says because it didn't come with an English translation.
This cream comes in a heavy glass jar with 25g of product and I purchased this for about 15000won. Not too shabby for an eyecream.
I don't think it's really anything that special. The BR eyecream has a strange scent to it. It's not fruity or floraly. It's almost like what the plants outside smell like after a heavy rainstorm.
The cream has a light pink color to it and it's kinda thick. It takes a while for my eye area to fully absorb the cream. Sometimes it's a pain in the ass because I usually wash my face and hair and then put on my contacts. If the cream hasn't fully absorbed, it makes it very difficult to open my eyes up with my fingers to pop in the contact lens.
With this wrinkle cream, I don't really see much of a difference. I've been using it for at least a month and still nothing. I'm not too sure how long it's supposed to take to show some sort of results though. But I'm fine with using this cream for now since I need to moisturize the eye area until I find something else later.
If there's something I love about Korea, other than the makeup, it's the cafes! They're so popular here that on a street near me (that's right next to a university) there's at least 5 cafes lined up. Dunkin Donuts is one of them and the drinks aren't cheap. They don't taste that good either. Another one is called Angel In Us Coffee (haha....angel anus coffee). It's one of my favourites, but the drinks are so expensive. About 4000won for a Starbucks tall size @__@ The cafe near has an angel theme to it so the lights have feathers on them, the couches and pillows have the angel logos on them.
If you decide to sit in to drink your coffee, depending on the barista's skill level, they make you a pretty yummy and beautiful drink.
I can't rememeber the exact name of the drink on the left, it's something caramel crunch and my drink on the right is called a Pink Angela Macchiato. It just tastes like..pink. Actually the bottom has a bit of condensed milk so there's a bit of that yummy flavour in it.
There's also a blue and yellow macchiato. When I went to try those, they totally screwed up the beautiful layers, you wouldn't even know it was yellow or blue. The blue one was mocha flavoured and I think the yellow one was caramel.
I apologize if this post kinda sucked XD I'll try to bring in some more posts this week. BTW..is it me or is Blogger slow at showing updated posts? I've noticed that some people may have updated, yet it doesn't show on my blogroll or followers that it updated until a few days later.
There's only 1 more month till I'm in Hong Kong and I feel a crazed itch up my ass when I think of the things I want to purchase. Best of all, I'll be in HK during my birthday! WhoooWhheeee!! Itamae Sushi here I come!!!!!!! Plus in March there's a chance I'll get to meet Miss Yumeko in person =D
