I just found out about this service! This is one of the cheapest and most secure ways to transfer money between Korean and American bank accounts. It's perfect for foreign workers and international/exchange students living in Korea.

I have been sick and tired of losing so much money transferring money between my Korean and American bank accounts and also suffering the loss because my Korean bank account has terrible rates (I do not recommend Woori Bank for your Korean banking needs as a foreigner).

Right now, the service only works between the USA and Korea (and vice versa).

It's quite easy and the customer service is super responsive and helpful/accommodating.

For example, my Korean bank account is registered in my Korean name, but my American name is my legal name everywhere else in the world (yet another Korea problem) and is the only one that appears on my passport/bank account details, etc.

They were quick to offer a solution.

Then, the problem didn't stop there. Woori capped my account at 1 million KRW transfer per day and they were willing to wait for me to send money over the course of three days and honored the first day's rate.

The one downside, you are capped at $20,000 per year and also 3 million KRW per transfer.
It also makes math confusing...because I think they did the whole 1000 KRW = 1 USD in determining the cap.

Anyway, try it out! Sodatransfer waived transfer fees (save up to $45)

[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.
