K returned home from Korea a little over a week ago. It’s always weird when he leaves and the adjustment period for when he comes back is a bit strange and uncomfortable. I was kind of nervous about him coming back and seeing him again. Even though we’ve been together so long and see each other nearly every day when he’s here, it’s still a strange thing to experience.
The one thing I always try to look forward to because I want to remain positive and not nervous about the change is him bringing me gifts. We kind of have our own little tradition of opening Christmas gifts the night he comes back. It gives us something comfortable to discuss and be excited about. This year, I got him a Jack Spade wallet, which he had been wanting. It’s gorgeous and he loves it. I got him a couple of other random things, like detailing clay for his car and a pore brush for his nose. He brought me back all the stuff you see below, plus a White Musk hand & nail cream from the Body Shop, which smells so wonderful. I forgot to take a picture of the White Musk lotion.
Here is what he brought me:
Everything is so pretty and special! Everything except the coin pouch is from Etude House, a very feminine, cute Korean brand. I love everything they make and that I’ve tried. I will describe everything below the pictures to try to explain what you are seeing.
I use all of these things daily. I am really loving the mask sheets because they are kind of special in the mask sheet arena. These Dr. Ampoule mask sheets are a two-step process. You first have to put the syrup from the first pouch all over your face. Then, you take the mask sheet out and wear it for about 15 to 20 minutes. My face is so glowing and plump after I use it. The Total Age Repair BB cream is new to me and I have yet to use it often because I still have some of my other BB cream left. The coverage, consistency, and color are spot on for me though. Plus, it has immortelle and royal jelly as ingredients. How cool is that?
You can actually buy Etude House directly from the company now by visiting the global site if you are not in Korea. Just go to http://www.etudehouse.com/index.php/
I am totally in love with this brand and would love to hear if anyone else has tried Etude House products. Of course, you can find Etude House products on Amazon and Ebay if that’s more convenient for you. If you are interested, I’d love to write a post on an introduction to Korean beauty products/makeup brands. This is one of my many passions in life 🙂
