This is the second part of the K-Beauty Trip event that occurred on November 18th, the other post was a recap of what happened and this will be a Haul from the goodie bags and what I bought.
There were quite a lot of brands that were present the day of the event, however some were not selling their products. It was kind of a way for them to get their products known while they scout for retailers or retail space I believe.
I’ll have to admit, I didn’t know about most of these brands save for a few (The Face Shop, Missha, Belif, A’Pieu) so I wasn’t sure what these other brands would offer however I was curious.
After a while and a short consultation with my mom on what to buy, I ended up getting two peel off face masks from Papa Recipe as well as a sample for the same mask but in eggplant. They had a good variety to choose from and were honey based, I believe, to reduce pain. This later lived up to the test when I tried it, it also picked up a good amount of blackheads without ripping a lot of peach fuzz. Even though I didn’t go on a full out shopping spree that day, I still left the hotel with a bag full of samples and etc.
When we were entering the ballroom, we were given a fairly sized bag that was filled with goodies in the form of samples, travel brochures, and coupons. The first things I spotted was the Disney Watery lip tint from the face shop in #1, and a small jar of Belif’s aqua bomb. There was also a sealed clear bag with samples from Dongnibi and a green tea face mask from The Face Shop, and a box that contained a makeup bag. When we opened up the makeup bag, there were 5 more face masks.
While passing by the Agatha table, I was able to get two serum samples, one in wine and the other in rose.
At the end of the event, I wished I had been able to persuade my mom into letting me get the eye cream set for her as the brand has yet to set up a retail location in Canada. However, I don’t regret going to the event because of many things.
- My friends and I got to see Morgan in action
- We were exposed to more brands that we might have interest in
- We had a good time
