Haul // Korea Trip 2016

If you follow me on Instagram you might know that I've travelled to Korea last year in Summer! Of course I went crazy and bought lots and lots of stuff. I didn't only spend money on beauty items but also clothes and stationary, so if you want to see that stuff as well just tell me! I didn't really have a wishlist nor a plan on what to buy/what I want so I went for the stuff that looked promising/appealing or was on sale. A few things I bought have been on my mind for a while so I picked that stuff as well, just to have it. And of course I stocked up on a loooot of sheetmasks which you can see later in the post! To be honest, when I wnet into the stores of all the brands I kinda was overwhelmed with all the stuff and the sales assistants were sometimes a little too intimidating and annoying so I didn't like spending too much time in one specific store. That's why I haven't picked up as much as I wished I had in retrospect.
First of are my COSRX, Skinfood and The Face Shop products. I was super happy when I found the COSRX products as I've been wanting to try the Advanced Snail Mucin 96 Power Essence and the Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser for a long time. Both of the items got a fix spot in my am/pm routine now! What's not included in the picture: I got the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patches as well but I've used up all of them while I was in Korea. I found the COSRX products at the ALand store at the COEX Mall. They sadly don't have a physical shop so you have to check the internet where you can get the products in Korea.
Next up is only one item from Skinfood: the Rice Mask Wash Off. I've heard good things about their masks especially so I picked this one as it was the most appealing to me. I regret not getting more stuff at the Skinfood store. The sales assistants were really nice btw!
My friend and I also ended up at a The Face Shop store. I initially wanted to check out the Kakao Friends edition but they didn't have the stuff I wanted nor the right shade for me of the cushions so I didn't want to get anything until my friend saw that the Jeju Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel and Damyang Bamboo 99% Fresh Soothing Gel were on a BOGO sale! Of course we picked them up and split the money! Great deal as you can never have enough of these gels.
Next up on the list: Etude House, Tony Moly and Urban Dollkiss!
Can you just take a moment and appreciate this adorable packaging? I love Tony Moly because of that!
While I was in Korea I ran out of foam cleanser so I picked up the Baking Powder Foam Cleanser from Etude House. The AC Clean Up Pink Spot Powder also got into my basket as I've been interested about this type of acne treatment for a while. Both of these will get their own review soon btw!
The Gold Black Sugar Mask from Tony Moly is actually a back up as I've been enjoying it quite a lot. I also got the Tomatox Magic Massage Pack which was really popular (porbably because of the packaging) and two of the Petite Bunny Gloss Bars as I want to get them all! They're just too cute to pass up, just like the Peach Lip Balm which smells really good!
At Urban Dollkiss I tried out different things on the back of my hand and smelled them as well and immediately liked the Peach All In One Peeling Gel! I love peaches and their smell!
I've actually got quite a lot at the Missha store, especially because a lot of their products had a huge discount! At least 50% or more! I couldn't say no! I got the hand creams only because of the cute packaging and a BOGO deal. The big colorful tubes are actually clay masks! They were 50% off as well and I've been enjoying the green version quite a lot so decided it was about time to get all the other types as well. I generally like their sunscreens so I picked up the all around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk as well as the Super Aqua Oxygen Peeling Gel.
These are the last items before we get to the sheetmask part! Random drugstore products, Skin79 and Elizavecca.
In Myeongdong was a really nice Skin79 store which also carried Elizavecca products so I decided to pick up the Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask as I've been seeing many good reviews of it on Instagram. It was a BOGO deal so I decided to get the Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack as well. Actually I do regret this purchase. I paid 20.000 WON for both products but could have gotten them cheaper on the internet. And I don't really use these masks, so please learn from my mistake: no random impulse buys! No matter how excited you are.
I was drawn to the sale section of Skin79 and picked up three items: Egg White Bright Up Cream, Snail Nutrition Cream which looks super luxurious and a Centellasca Ointment (Centellaaaa one of my fav acne soothing ingredients!).
At a drugstore I got the Nexcare Pimple Patches which are kind of similar to the COSRX ones, just a little cheaper. To be honest I prefer the COSRX patches over these as they stick to my face better. Both do magic work on your pimples though.
I also got a blackhead peel off mask. My friend and I were like: Ooohh Suzy is on there so it has to be good! Yeah, biggest lie ever. This doesn't work at all.
Now onto my favorite part: Sheetmasks!
These Leaders mask were on sale for 1.000 - 1.500 WON each so I got every falvor the drugstore offered. I'm still super happy about this as I've been really enjoying these masks. Not included in the picture: Coconut Water Gel AC & Pore Care Mask.
These were random finds at a Lotte Mall. They were super cheap - 500 - 1.000 WON each so I was curious if super cheap masks do the moisturzing job as well as more expensive masks. The brand is called Olive Farm.
All of these sheetmasks I found at a drugstore, I think it was LOHBS or Olive Young, I could be wrong tho. I picked them up because they all were on sale/BOGO! I picked up the T.P.O feat Line Friends mask, two packs of the ACWell sheetmasks and a brand I don't know because it's nowhere written on the package?? But I like the sheetmasks! The green one on the upper right is a 3-step mask from Daiso and the one on the far left beside the ACwell masks was a freebie from Urban Dollkiss.
All the Innisfree sheetmasks! I got a few for a friend of mine and the rest for myself, I found them super cheap at a random shady store, and the rest is from official innisfree stores! I tried to pick up all "flavours" of the it's real squeeze masks and sadly only two versions of the skin clinic masks. I should have picked up more! I want to try them all.
Now the last batch of the stuff I got. The top row are all Tony Moly sheetmasks. The Goat Milk ones were freebies and the Pureness 100 Hyaluronic Acid and Snail masks were on sale for buy 20 get 10. They make great moisturizing daily masks.
In the second row on the left are Secret Key Snail masks that I split up with my friend because 10 were just 6.000 WON and the other are from Missha! I got a 10 pack of the Lemon and Tea Tree and a 5 pack of the Cherry Blossom ones. So far I've only tried the Cherry Blossom and Tea Tree masks and they were okay, nothing special. I wouldn't buy them again probably. I did have good and bad experiences with Missha sheetmasks so we'll see how the lemon works out.

So this sums up my Korea haul from last Summer! Have you ever been to Korea and went crazy just like me? xD
If you're curious about any of the products, let me know and I'll try to review it as soon as I can!
