[K-Beauty] Best deals on kbeauty (Part 2) Myeongdong Lotte Duty Free Tips (Shared via @youniqbeauty)

Here's a link to Part 1: Sales and tips for shopping at road shops

As I have kinda sorta mentioned on my post about Dr. Jart and StyleNanda, and as savvy shoppers know, you have to shop at the Duty Free store for better prices on CERTAIN BRANDS.

For example, Belif is more expensive if you go to a store outside of the Duty Free. Even though it's a Korean brand, it's cheaper to buy it at Sephora or on Amazon. (Sorry, for the American perspective, but if you want to buy this great moisturizer and aren't from the US, I recommend you check the prices in your home country before coming to Korea, just to make sure!)

The other great thing about shopping Duty Free is that at Lotte Duty Free Stores, you get at least an additional 10% off for using a Visa card! (As you see below she mentions a specific type of Visa card, but it's actually for any credit/debit card with a Visa logo on it). Depending on the status level of your credit card and how much you're purchasing, you might also be able to save an even larger percentage!

However, my tip, which differs from hers (just because I live here and have seen the sale cycles), is if you are going to buy products from the typical "road shop" brands like Etude House, Innisfree, Missha, The Face Shop, Skin Food, etc., make sure you look out for their sale days and see if they correspond with your travel dates. Part 1: Sales and tips for shopping at road shops

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
