My Korea Shopping Haul

I went Korea last month during Chinese New Year with my boy, well we went there 2 big luggage bags and put the smaller one inside the big one to check in at the airport. Came back all the bags are packed! Not with shopping haul but with our winter wear clothing, the Down jacket which I wore in the picture, I bought it in Korea for RM270 and it took at least half of the luggage space which leave me very little place for me to do my shopping :p

So what have I bought ?

It's -6 degree. I wore 4-5 layers of clothing and am still shivering!

I tried my best to resist and to buy products that are made from Korea and that are not available in Malaysia. But you know how highly price are marked up for these Korean Skincare in Malaysia !

Let me show you the difference!

My best purchase from this trip! - TELL ME IT'S PRETTY!!

The 2 boots from the left for 10,000 won (RM27) - surprisingly they are quite comfortable despite the cheap price!

The right hand black leather boots, my sweet darling bought for me.. around RM120, after seeing me complaint about my feet being too cold from wearing my Nike sport shoes. This boots are super comfy!!

Apart from shoes, I bought some clothes. But its winter season, so not much choice of what I can buy and wear it here in Malaysia!

Holika Holika Egg Soap Cleanser to Reduce Blackheads and Brighten Skins - 4,000 each. I bought 2 !

The others are the free gift that the store will automatically put in the paper bag when I paid.

Note : This brand not available in Malaysia.

Its Skin Power 10 Formula Serum.

There are11 types of serum targeting different needs.

I got myself 3 bottles only

- YE Effector (contains yeast extract to promote cell growth and restore skin cell)
-VC Effector (brightening serum containing Vit C and helps to tighten pores too)
-Co Collagen ( vegetable collagen extracts hydrates the skin from the inside)

Price at 9800 won each for 30ml (RM26+) - Regretted, should have buy all and try it !

Note : This brand not available in Malaysia.

Tony Moly Latte Cappuccino Cream in Scrub - smell so good and looks so cute. My boy asked me why do you want to buy a cup ?

Price at 9800 won for 80ml (RM26+)

Note : This brand not available in Malaysia.

Skin79 surprisingly is not widely available in Korea. Believe it or not, I only saw one small counter back there in Myeongdong and that's also inside a mall.

SKin79 Diamond All Day Sun Powder SPF 30 PA++ - got this for a friend at 24,000 won (
Skin79 The Oriental Smooth Sun BB Pact SPH 25PA++ l 25,000 won
Skin79 Super BB Gold Label - don't remember how much is this, need to look at my bills again

. Well I don't have major problem there. But you see this is an impulse buy, feeling curious and wanted to try this Armpit Kit that comes with a scrub and lotion.

Price at 9900 won ( roughly RM26+)

I got this too !

Skinfood Ginseng Mask - 12,900 won (RM35)
Salmon Dark Circle Concealer - 8,000 won (RM22)

Got this Etude House Missing U Hand cream in peach for 4,500 won each (RM12+) as gift to my close friend.

Just last year Baviphat entered into Malaysia market. And this is something I wanted to try. Smell too good to resist for such a price.

Honestly I never used Faceshop before, and when my friend asked me for my help Sleeping Mask in Raspberry, I got one for him and came back he scolded me just getting him one ONLY.

Because this is selling in Malaysia for RM99 and I got this for only 9900 won ( about RM26++)

Now I realized why the SA in Faceshop told me , are you sure you just want one only, tourist from Malaysia usually get a dozen or minimum 5 bottles.

Anyway, at the last day just before I fly back, with the extra money I have, I got this too. Too curious too see how different this would be from Laneige Sleeping Mask .

Some sheets mask in different flavor I got for myself and my friends.

Roughly Rm0.70/piece !

That's all I have bought .

I wish to buy more, but my pockets are burning, need to save for my next coming trip !

So people , what do you like from my haul ?
