Must-Buy Korea Skin / Hair Care Products!

As we all know Korea is famous of their Skin Care & Cosmetics products.
In the street of Myeongdong, you can see whole stretch of "The Face Shop", "Etude House", "Tony Moly", " Innisfree", "Nature Republic" Etc.. No matter how many times you go into the shop, everytime you will buy something out!

This trip to Seoul, I bought mainly skin care products compared to cosmetics.
I'm going to introduce some of the products I've bought from Seoul, I've tried it and works well on my skin!
All these Korean products are very affordable, the price in Korea is about 40% to 50% cheaper than Singapore! I can't remember all the prices of individual products. If you all interested can google it.

1. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask
Innisfree does not have an outlet in Singapore yet. This clay mask was introduced to me by 1 of their staff.
This is recommend for oily skin user. It helps to clean the pores without making your pore bigger.
Use once or twice per week. Apply it on your skin leave it for 15 mins and wash it off. While washing it off, blackheads, whiteheads will clean off together with the water!

2. Tony Moly Latte Art Cappuccino Cream-In Scrub
Tony Moly has a few outlets in Singapore.. I really love their coffee face scrub! The coffee smell really delicious when you scrub it on your face.. Slowly you scrub it you will feel your face getting warmer and coffee smell getting stronger! Its very gentle to your skin so don't have to worry it will hurt your skin :)
Super cute packaging just like a full size coffee mug! 
Use it once or twice a week. 

3. All time favorite product! Laneige Firming Sleeping Pack
Laneige Sleeping Pack I guess you guys are very familiar about it, most popular brand & product in Korea.
Now they have introduced a new product firming effect included into the sleeping pack!
Firming is more for people who are mid 20s onwards, so if you are young teenagers normal sleeping pack is good enough for you. Use it once or twice per week, before you sleep apply on your face after toner & moisturizer, don't have to wash it off until the next morning!

4. Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel
I not sure does Singapore NR has this products. When I went into NR, I saw a lady purchased whole basket of this Soothing Gel. It cost only 3000won (app. 4SGD) very very cheap for 1 tub! Soothing gel can apply on your face, hair, body! Everywhere!! 92% of the ingredients are extracted from real Aloe Vera! Super moisturize for your skin! You can use it twice per week for your face.. Apply it after toner and moisturizer and wash it off the next morning! 

5. Various Face Masks from Innisfree & The Face Shop
Face masks from Innisfree & The Face Shop are quite suitable me, besides Taiwan Diary Series Face Masks. I won't have stinging feeling when I put it on. But for Missha face mask I do have stinging feeling, maybe the ingredients doesn't suit me. Face mask can use alternate days if you are generous. If not, once or twice per week is good enough.  

6. Etude House Rich Butter Foot Mask
Beside taking care of our face don't forget our feet as well! Rich Butter Foot mask is more of moisturize your foot. Etude house do have another peeling foot mask, put the mask on your feet and your dead skin will peel off day by day to renew your skin. I wanted to buy it! In the end when I back to SG, I realised I didn't buy it! Sigh~ It works well together with Rich Butter Foot Mask.
I'm more of stingy type so I will use this foot mask once a month!

7. Self-Steam Hair Pack from The Face Shop
This is their latest product, DIY steam your hair at home! Due to the dry & cold weather in Korea, my hair was terribly dry & frizzy! When I'm back to SG, I straight away used 1 pack! It really helps me to recover from dry & frizzy hair to normal! The pack included a hair cap for you to wrap it! After shampoo, push the cream up to the hot essence it will warm up the cream apply it on your hair, put on the cap and massage it! Leave it for 15 mins and wash it off :)

Places of attractions in Seoul will be my next post! :D
