Travel and skincare

The one annoying thing with my skincare routine is when I have to travel.
I cannot bring it all. So I have to skip a few and also take in consideration that if I don't check in my bag I want smaller sizes.
When travelling I do not use as many items as I do at home because well.. too much space and busy.
So I tried to look into my vanity/closet to see what I can do to reduce the amount but still not loose all goodies.



1. Samples
If you go to Korea or shop through Korean websites they usually give you samples.
These are perfect for travelling. Maybe not the usual product you use but will work fine for travels as long as they are to fit your skin.

2. One time use products
Okay so the bag might be a bit heavier going there but as you use them you don't have to worry about bringing them back. e.g. make up removal tissues.
The CosRX pads are great, last Christmas I picked up the travel packs, I got a small container for free, it's perfect for travelling!! It fits many pads.

3. Multiple use products
Believe it or not but there are products that can be used for various use. Not only one type.
e.g. toner+essence
an example is this one which can be used as a serum, priming moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream, and sleeping mask

4. Travel sized kits
If you have larger bottles, pour some of the products into smaller travel size bottles/containers.
These kits you can pick up at a cheap price and save you a lot of space.

5. Mask packs
I usually bring a few masks if I stay overnight. The airplane ride sure make my already dry skin even dryer, so it's good to moist back at the hotel. For long haul flights I like to have a facial mask on during a part of the flight. And an eye heating mask. The eye heating is perfect for sleeping as it's so relaxing!!

I love these 3 step masks as they come with cleansing, essence and the mask :)
Perfect for travelling!!!

[KLAIRS] Freshly Juiced Brightening Package

Like I didn't buy enough already you ask?
Funny thing, I have not even reviewed a quater of what I have already purchased during my holidays in Seoul.
So why did I buy more you think?
Well... as I came home I realized I was missing some items. So after searching I found this value pack on Wishtrend and I felt, why not? It was also free shipping making it worth the money!
Several Kbeauty people I follow has raved about the vitamin drop and the Vitamin E mask, those were the ones I wanted. But looking the the price and shipping for the individual, I decided to get the pack.
I already bought the toner, 2 ea in Korea. But a 3rd cannot harm a soul. Or I can also gift it to someone...unless I fall in love with it, I will use it all.

From all items and packages I decided on the #7 Brand package by Wishtrend X KLAIRS!
The Freshly Juiced Brightening Package is specially designed to bring liveliness back to your exhausted skin.

Brand : KLAIRS
Package includes:
Foaming Cleanser 1EA
Sugar Polish 1EA

モッズコート


I found this one by change on my final day in Osaka.
This was discounted to almost 70%.
I first tried L but it was huge. So I asked for M. It's kinda funny looking at the details below because those two felt like there was a bigger difference.
I got it in khaki, my fave colour for these kinds of jackets! I'm so happy, I really needed a new one!
I cannot wait to wear it this spring!!

Jeju orchid enriched cream



This line was one of the most highly anticipated lines I wanted to try.
As said I used a lot of other brands before but recently heard a lot of good for this Orchid line. Especially for dry skin.
When we were in Korea I could not find it at first, I went to several stores and finally asked.. is it discontinuated?
Reply was no, but they are renewing it and therefore not in store until Jan 1.
And so I waited.. for 3 days.
On Jan 1 they released it and posters all over. I got lots of messages. And they had the Lucky box promotion too as I stated in another post.

This cream was the basic in the pack and honestly I have now picked up so many creams I donno what to do. However after using another for a month, which seems to work but I cannot really see that much of a difference. I opened this. It's so rich and once applied on the skin, it feels thick. Not in a bad way, just like it coats the skin and protect it from the cold. It has a scent to it, but to me it's a fresh scent so I'm fine with it. I will review this upcoming month and let you know my thoughts.
So far so good!

IC BASE CAMP DUFFEL

I found this out because of the ongoing Olympics, at least I think there is a Korean because of that.
It was kinda hard to get but I managed to get it!
This bag is really unique and good for travel.
I'll bring it for my upcoming travel as it fits in the luggage as it can be folded. I miss a cover bag to put it in making it easier, but I can probably find another that would fit.
It's a medium size so it can also be used for a weekend trip.

What do you think?
Pretty no? :)

Postnord vilket skämt!!


Det var på tal för någon månad sedan och nu är det klart!
Alla paket som kommer från ett land utanför EU ska de ta betalt för.
Den summan är så stor att det betyder att svenska medborgare får betala Postnords anställdas lön.
Det är ju inte vårt fel att Postnord inte kan anställa fler som kan sortera. Heller inte att Sverige tar så mycket moms för allt som gör att vi beställer från andra länder! Kolla bara på Drottninggatan, 3 H&M butiker! Jag älskar H&M men tre på en gata?

Postnord är den service som vi får dras med oavsett vi vill eller inte?
Kan vi byta till en annan postservice?
Andra länder verkar inte klaga... ni har dessutom en månad för att sortera!

Ursch ursch... Postnord har ALDRIG varit bra och blir bara sämre!!

Svindyra porton, Dålig service - skicka/leverans, borttappade paket, okunnig personal på deras företagscenter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

シャギーコート


I found this on sale, I got it for 6 500 yen, cheaper than what it's online.
But this colour doesn't seem to be available anymore.
I got it in "Off"..gray white. in M.
I love it, it's long, "fluffy" and warm.
I wasn't supposed to buy it but both me and my hubby loved it and I could never get this kind of coat for that price in Sweden.
As we live in a cold country it's perfect to have a coat that is long!
Only downside is that it ONLY has one button. I wished it had one more.

Egg Mellow Cream


Too cool for school is a Korean brand that you can find at Sephora. Expensive but good, I however do miss their make ups. e.g. highlighter and contour would be great buy. I bought this in a small version before Christmas and I liked it a lot. I was thinking this item would be PERFECT for travelling as it's a 5-in-1 cream. This moisturizer works as a serum, priming moisturizer, eye cream, neck cream, and sleeping mask in one. I mean, this saves so much space in my suitcase still I can keep my face fresh.
I picked a full size up in Korea, so much cheaper too! And I brought it with me for work travels. However the day after I applied before bed and woke up I saw a few "bumps" around my eye area and freaked out. This did not look good, only a few and not too visible but big enough for me to decide I will not use this around my eyes. For the rest of my face I think it works as it should. And I'm not sure if it's the cream that cause the small bumps but I have never seen them before with other creams. Therefore I will take precaution and see what happens, I will use again to try.

In all a great moisturizer, it's lightweight and you only need a small amount, a little goes a long way.
It has a scent to it, cannot really tell what it is, a mix of egg and something else. But for you who are sensitive, pick up a small sample first and try.

Score

A highly enriched, five-in-one firming moisturizer infused with collagen for younger-looking skin.

Solutions for:

Orchid Lucky Box


I think this ONLY comes out once per year around New years. But correct me if I'm wrong.
I went to Innisfree on Jan 1 and outside each innisfree (as I passed by quite many) they all shouted for the customers to buy one of these boxes.
One light and one dark purple.

The light one was priced at 25 000won and the dark 28 000 won.
In each box you received the basic enriched cream + one additional item.
As well as cotton pads and the box it self.
One of the additional items could be eye cream, gel cream, essence, sleeping mask or fluid.
it was kinda like a game to buy them as each weighted slightly differently. I really wanted the eye cream to be honest so I tried to find light ones. 

The reason I bought one of each is because the dark one is better for super dry skin, aka my husband!
And I also liked the colour of the box. I needed a new make up bag so it's more fun to have two different ones.
Sadly I didn't get the eye cream in any of my boxes. What I got I will be sharing with you at a later stage once I have started to try them out.

Still good value for Money as the additional item cost around 25 000 won (aprox 25USD) each.
And because my mother-in-law became a member for me, so I can get discounts I got a card to use to get further discount during our stay.

Anyway if you go to Korea and have dry skin, I can recommend you to purchase one of these!!

サカリバSETUP


As soon as I saw this outfit I wanted it.
So simple yet so nice. I had a hard time to decide on size but went for M.
For some reason L looked huge, it was comfy but well.. too big for Europe. Although the measurements doesn't look that far from each other.
Many styles in Japan are over-sized, but not as much over here.

I love the colour of it! The dark green looks so good.

And best part, I got it on sale!

내가 돌아



Queen of Kpop is back.
It was released a week ago or so but I didn't have time to share.
I listened and well it's good. I wasn't that impressed by the comeback stage. But the lyrics are fun and I enjoy the song!

The title is 내가 돌아 and can be translated to "I'm going crazy / Insane"

Lyrics
내가 내가 돌아

Yeah Yeah Yeah
딴 데 알아봐 good luck
알아 들었니? got it?
지루하잖아 흔하게 널린 뻔한 말들과 눈빛

내겐 어림도 없지
다시 기회는 없어 No
귀찮아 딱 거기까지
내가 내가 돌아 (ha ha bruh!)

또 blah blah 말을 던져
내 마음엔 하찮은 말들
네 혀끝에 또 가벼운 말 love, love

너 그저 그래 너무 뻔해
더 솔직히 말하면 별로
뭐 다른 얘길 또 기대했니

Yeah yeah 너 혼자만 아찔해
좀 숨겨봐 아직 아마추어
뻔히 보이는데 아무것도 아닌 척
눈 감아주긴 난 이제 지겨워

반가웠어 잠깐
알겠으니깐 됐어
또 보진 말자 good bye

딴 데 알아봐 good luck
알아 들었니? got it?
지루하잖아 흔하게 널린 뻔한 말들과 눈빛

내겐 어림도 없지
다시 기회는 없어 No
귀찮아 딱 거기까지
내가 내가 돌아

너 같은 애들 너무 많아
한 시간에 하나씩 만나도 남아
아무런 의미도 없는 관계
너 역시 똑같아 착각 말아
Oh boy
호기심을 자극했지
그 이상은 아니야 넌

더 아무 말 하지마
좀 치워봐 그런 표정도
보고 있기조차 이젠 너무 따분해
너 기다려도 내 맘은 안 변해

반가웠어 잠깐
알겠으니까 됐어
쿨하게 이제 good bye

딴 데 알아봐 good luck
알아 들었니? got it?
지루하잖아 흔하게 널린 뻔한 말들과 눈빛

내겐 어림도 없지
다시 기회는 없어 No
귀찮아 딱 거기까지
내가 내가 돌아

어린애도 아닌데 왜 날 보채
사탕이라도 물려주길 원해?
남자답지도 않은 널 굳이 왜
시간 아깝게 돌봐야 될까?
yeah yeah yeah

딴 데 알아봐 good luck
알아 들었니? got it?
기가 막혀서 웃음도 안 나와 이제 그만 좀 꺼져

내겐 어림도 없지
다시 기회는 없어 No
귀찮아 딱 거기까지
내가 내가 돌아

내가 내가 돌아
내가 내가 돌아

フェルトキャスケット


I picked up this hat on sale.
When my hubby saw it he said.. You look like Super Mario. But cute.
So I guess that was an OK from him..
I got it in a dark beige colour. I love the hat to be honest :)
It comes in various colours but this one fit me the best. It's not something I'd find in Sweden therefore I love it. 

Can't wait to wear it!
