[Snack Attack - Korea] Maeil Sunup Vplan - Grapefruit and Herb

I decided to try this Maeil Sunup Vplan (Grapefruit and Herb) when I saw it in the convenience store.
All I can say is, you're welcome in advance that I tried it so you don't have to!

I mean, it's not bad. It's no GS 25 banana latte (this wasn't available on my last trip, so it must have been a flop, not just a my American tastes vs Korean tastes thing).

The Vplan drink was not what I thought it would be at all. I think if I drank it again now knowing what I know I would not be as disappointed.

The grapefruit flavor was not very good. It was quite artificial tasting to me, even though I thought I checked to see that it was made with real grapefruit. Maybe it was a fake sugar or something (I really can't stand Splenda), but there was a weird aftertaste.

The herb picture made it look like rosemary and chamomile. The herb portion of the flavor was kind of cooling, kind of like you'd get from a mint, but it doesn't leave you with a minty flavor.

I'm still not entirely sure what the herb flavor is because after I finished it, I threw it away without thinking about my eventual post.

Have you tried this flavor or any of the other flavors? What did you think?

[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.
