Contest Update + Haulage!!

OMFG!! I didn't realize that I wrote July 19 for the HG contest instead of JUNE 19!!!!!! I'm gonna extend it till June 20 midnight Seoul time! @___@ Please enter!!! =D=D Thanks to AngelicBB for noticing this!!! haha.
On to my super picture post....
I went to Myeong Dong yesterday...on a weekday to meet up with Tim and a friend. I got there earlier so I decided to drop by Hanskin to get a conditioner. My hair has been breaking very easily and I loose a few too many when I blow dry my hair.
According to the Hanskin website, the "Bring Back Conditioner" is supposed to help moisturize, detox, add nutrients, help hair growth and prevent hair loss. That's according to the pictures haha.

When I purchase a conditioner, I expect it to make my hair silky without weighing it down (I have fine hair). I want to be able to run my comb through while my hair is wet without any knots and it also must make my hair silky after blow drying. So... with that said, I don't think the Hanskin conditioner lives up to these expectations after using it twice. The Herbal Essence one I was using did a better job. As for the hair growth part, I have yet to see that happen since I just started using it.
I will probably continue buying this conditioner and use it in the morning because it doesn't weigh my hair down (that's the only plus about this).
You know how most conditioners leave a silky feeling when you're hair is still wet? This one doesn't..the conditioner rinses out completely and there's no "conditioned" feeling.

I only intended to get the conditioner during the visit to Myeong Dong, but of course being a girl...I ended up with more junk.
From Hanskin, I got their Moisture Waterdrop Hand Cream 40g for 5000won. A lot cheaper than the fruit shaped hand creams (30g for 12,000won).
I asked for some BB cream samples and I'm gonna throw this into the contest.

The hand cream is very funny. Have you heard of the Skinfood Lettuce Cucumber serum? Well it's similar to that...in the way that when you apply the hand cream, it kinda forms water beads then immediately gets absorbed into the skin. It looks kinda like you're sweating on your hands as you rub it in, it's so cool!! The hand cream has a light fragrance and doesn't feel sticky at all. As for moisturizing-ness, I think it's ok. It's not like Aveeno where it moisturizes my hands for a long time, but this is good for the price.

I went to Etude House because I was convinced by Old Cow that the dual fiber brush is comparable to MAC. I haven't felt the MAC one before, but this is quite a good brush for the price (8000won). It's really soft and dense, but it's so small!!!!

Trying to pull off a puppy eyes FOTD hahaha...I kept taking pictures of myself while all the teachers were teaching. There was a cleaner lady in the office who probably thought I was so vain.
I'm using the Lunasol Soft Silver Lighting EX04 with MM pink cream shadow as a base.

I finally tried Samgeitang!! (chicken ginseng soup). This was at Myeong Dong, supposedly famous restaurant, there's like 4 in MD. This was 10,000won and really filling and tasty! No bitter taste at all.

I was walking around and saw this BB cream walking around...

I haven't eaten cantaloupes since Canada and I was so excited to see them here! But to my surprise, these aren't orange! They don't even taste like cantaloupes, but it's got the same skin.

Oh gosh..I'm so bad at comments lately... I'm sorry!!!!! But I still read your blogs =D

Beauty Snap said...

Haha! The walking BB Cream~
I love how you post so many cool pics.. Too bad that the conditioner didn't work! Are Korean shampoos good in general? I have no idea what brands they sell in the local drugstore... For me I really like the DHC shampoo(will do review soon) and I have an ionic dryer which makes my hair smooth.
Anyway I think you look so cute in the puppy dog pic.

OMG! I've that walking around BB cream! hehe! so cute!

awe! and you got such a great stuff! That Etude brush looks good!

mint said...

hi miumiu,
you should probably try a leave in conditioner spray. i've tried one before and it left my hair smelling really nice and soft. at the moment i'm using one from missha and it's pretty good. my hair never get knots anymore, wet or dry. my friend actually told me my hair looks shiny, black and healthy after i started using one.

mint <3

LOL at the walking BB cream! I guess that'd make it impossible not to know what bb cream is if you're in Seoul. =P

The Etude House brush looks nice! Sorry to hear the conditioner didn't work for you...it's always sort of hit or miss when it comes to hair products. But the water drop hand cream looks cool...and I didn't know the Skin Food Letter Cucumber serum has that effect too, awesome!

I hope you have fun this weekend meeting up with and shopping with Kay!

Jess said...

Oh, how I miss yummy self cooked Asian food lately. I have been so lazy at cooking, so only eating breadis every day, hehe... simple & quick! :p

ning * star said...

aichaku-愛着 said...

omg that walking bb cream so funny. i found the other handcream (same packaging as the water drop) fr hanskin better - more moisturising. omg i wish you'd do a CP service. ahahaha i could even pay u "commission"! i want some more hanskin stuff so bad.

Lulu said...

haha fake cantolope! does it at least taste good?

haha walking bb cream! how funny!

Syn@3sTh3sI@ said...

Miu, I think I went to the exactly same chicken ginseng soup shop.. hahaha.. i also bought the duo fiber brush from Etude House when I was in Korea... but regret din get more Sleeping Mask n moisturizer... the brush is good on the white color area but black area is coarse in my opinion... although we don't touch the black area during application but it does fall out sometimes n stick on my skin..

Hana aka acutelife said...

I think that's melon, a sister of cantaloupes :D and lolz to the adorable walking BB cream, i would take pic with it if I were there hahaha...I like your puppy eyes pic, you look cute XD

ekimura said...

fuzkittie said...
