[Snack Attack - Korea] DailyTalk Mango Aloe Juice

This Daily Talk Mango/Aloe juice is new. It showed up in convenience stores (GS25 and CU) about two weeks ago.

I decided to try it as a breakfast drink, instead of my usual milk, like this Snoopy coffee milk from GS25.

Since it's new, the convenience stores are all running sales promotions on it. I got mine 1+1 (buy one, get one free) at CU.

I was really excited because I really like having the chewy texture in my juice. I think it's weird when I describe it this way.

I also am kind of obsessed with mangoes right now, so I was kind of excited for that reason, too.

I so wish I loved this drink, but it was just alright.

It was very sugary! I really need to get in the habit of checking the sugar content (당류) before I purchase drinks here. I always remember right after I open it. Koreans really like sugar in everything!
As you might recall, it happened to me in my Bad Farmers juice purchase, too.

A bit off topic:
This is also important to note if you have diabetes! Even juice like tomato juice has an insane amount of sugar in it here! I am lucky that my failure to check the sugar content doesn't have immediate consequences on me.

Anyway, this juice was good enough to buy again if it is on sale/continues to be on sale.

I got 1+1, so 2 for 1800 KRW.
So, it's kind of a little expensive for just one juice.

It was good enough though to be a meal replacement in the morning because my office has lunch at 11:30, so anything else is kind of too heavy in the morning.

[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.
