To be honest, I’ve been sitting on making this post for over a month -_-;;;; But here it is!
For most of my skincare needs I can get them here in Seattle, either with American brands or at my local Amore Pacific storefront or LG Storefront (I might to an explanatory post later if anyone’s curious). But, certain brands are either not sold in WA state and I have to order them straight from Korea!
I really love to try new products, so I did get an ipsy and Birchbox subscription, but I still find myself going back to what I grew up with, which are Korean skincare/lotion sets. Admittedly in College I had to give them up since I was broke, but once I graduated and got a job, I could finally buy fancier lotions than the aveeno I had used all through college. I still have a bit of Post Bacc classes I’m working through so last quarter for finishing both of my classes wtih 4.0’s I decided to get one line and TWO extra products I’ve been watching for awhile 😛
I ordered from RubyRuby76, which is the eBay storefront for RoseRose Shop (http://www.roseroseshop.com/en/) I’ve ordered in the past, because they do have frequent sales, and even though their shipping is a little slower, 2-3weeks and they do charge per weight, the prices tend to be cheaper and I like to do bulk orders. The other reason why I love ordering from Korea is that most sellers give generous samples with their orders, this practice is referred to as “service” (서비스) in Korea which is whenever you get a little something extra for free! It helps build a stronger
Now they’re advertising their sample giving, which is 5 samples for orders 100 and under and 10 samples for 101-200 and over 10 samples for 201~. Sadly I guess the packing department didn’t read my invoice 🙁 But that’s okay because I’m still excited about these products and I’ve been using them for a few weeks now!
