Haul from Seoul: Etude House

27 Mar

This is FINALLY my last “Haul from Seoul” entry. Whew! Although, this collective haul is the first among my many purchases in Seoul, I post this the last since I bought a lot from Etude House. You see, Etude House is a fairly inexpensive brand in South Korea targeted to the young (but there are also products for the not-so-young anymore ;)) and I’ve been dying to get my hands on their well-received and cutely packaged products.

I bought my Etude House products in Everland Resort (yes, they there is an Etude House in Everland) and Hongdae.

Here are my Etude House goodies:

Bebe Foot Mask, AC Clinic Mask Sheet, Princess 3D Mask, Essence Masks

Quick Review: AC Clinic Mask Sheet

I tried it at the height of the breakouts on my chin. It did not tingle but I did not notice any immediate effects since I only used it once.

Petit Darling Nails Matte

To compare with the price here in Thailand, I got similar matte pink nail polish at THB200 (approximately US$7/ KRW7,000) and I got each of the matte nail polishes at KRW2,000 each (approximately THB62/ US$2). It is a little streaky when applied but it got smoother and cleaner when I put a matte top coat (Skinfood Gunnpang).

Total Age Repair Royal Cream, Missing You Bee Hand Cream in Rose and Acacia

Happy Teatime Waterproof Lip & Eye Remover Tissue

Happy Teatime Green Tea Cleansing Tissue

Quick Review: The green tea cleansing tissues smell so good and refreshing. It doesn’t sting and dry my face. Although, it easily removes traces of makeup and BB cream, this is not the only cleansing regimen I follow.

Petit Bijou Allover Spray in Baby Bubble

Quick Review: This is an allover spray, meaning it can be sprayed not only on your body but also on your clothes, pillows and room. I tested it in the shop and it smelled so clean and pure and I really regretted not getting one for myself.

Proof 10 Eye Primer

Quick Review: I love this! It does keep my eye shadow the whole day albeit my really oily face and super humid weather in Bangkok. This is really worth it. I should have gotten a back up.

Dear Darling Tint

Apricot Sticks

Look at My Lips Lipsticks

And the freebies from Etude House…

Goodbye Pore Ever & Be Clear Moisturizer Samples

More Freebies and Samples

two mugs (yes, I brought them all the way from Seoul hehe), cotton pads, pear extract mask, stickers, baking powder pore cleansing tissue, Silk Scarf shampoo, Dressing Room lotion, Moistful toner and emulsion

Like all the other goodies I got from Seoul, most of what you can see here are for family and friends. I can do more comprehensive reviews, though, of the products which I quickly reviewed (except for the Petit Bijou spray) since they are mine.

Do you use Etude House products? Which products are your favourites? Care to share?

Cheers πŸ™‚
