I then moved on to the skin care….Korean brands make such interesting products and what unique ideas! I picked a Blending Sleeping Cream from their Moonlight in Spoon line. Yes it is a cream….in a spoon 😀 There are supposed to be two different products in it which I need to blend in the spoon area before use. Excited to see how it works out. I then spotted this Scrub Massage Bubble from their Sunshine in Spoon. This does not come in the spoon format. They had 4-5 variants in it and I got myself the rice one.
I was so glad that they had the Wonder Pore Modeling Clay. I really wanted to try this! You make a paste with the given powder, put it on your pores and let it dry. It dries and acquires a putty like texture. When you peel it the blackheads and muck is supposed to come out from your pores. It provides 7 in 1 pore solution. One box is usually meant for one use and to be applied all over the face but I will just use it for my nose and nearby area. Would have to transfer the contents to a separate container for storage.
They have introduced a new range of mask sheets from A to Z….ie they have 26 different sheets with different key ingredients. I picked J which is made off Job’s Tears and is for Revitalizing & Smoothing. You should check out some of the other interesting ingredients in this range. Since these are a fairly new launch they haven’t turned up online yet. My mom wanted to try a snail range. The only thing Etude had in snail was this mask sheet which is called Darling Sheet Mask.
Another new introduction was this Argan Seed hair mask which is part of their famous Silk Scarf range. They have launched 4 different variants and the one I picked is meant for damaged hair. There are 2 parts to it. One is the hair pack which you apply like conditioner after shampoo and the other is a leave in serum of sorts. The variants are categorized based on the level of damage and TLC the hair needs. Level 1 is Camellia, 2 is Jojoba, 3 is Argan and 4 is Avocado.
They are so so freaking generous when it comes to samples. I didnt say one word to the SA and she kept stuffing them in my bag! I actually ended up saying – “You are giving me more…. O_o” Imagine that! On top of that I was given lucky draw coupons for additional gifts and I got a super cute desk calender. Each month had a special coupon in it but which could only be redeemed in the Singapore store in that particular month. I was given a Go Back kit containing 4 products, 2 tubes of AC Clinic Pink Daily Spot, 4 sachets of Wonder Pore Corrector, 2 sachets of CC cream in Glow, 2 sachets of CC Cream in Silky, 2 sachets of Magic Bubble, 2 sachets of Fresh Cherry Tint in PK001 and another 2 in RD301. Phew! I gave half of everything to my sis to use.
In the end I’m just going to repeat myself….I freakin LOVE Etude 😀 And one day I’m going to see their proper store….and it just might be the one in Korea! Who knows 🙂 Bitten by the travel bug and now my floodgates have opened up! Going to work my a$$ off…save me some moolah and go off wandering some other place. For now, I hoped you liked my haul. Full reviews will be coming up subsequently and I will mention the priced in each individual post. Well that it for now – Todahloo!
