It's been nearly two months now since I embarked on my one week skincare shopping spree in Seoul! As many of you would have guessed I had a fantastic time shopping over there, buying new skincare and beauty products everyday in different stores and areas of Seoul. It was such a fun and exciting experience and I thoroughly enjoyed exploring each and every beauty haunt I could find!
