[Snack Attack - Korea] Makgeolli Soda - Icing and me 3%

My friend and I often ordered chicken and had either soju soda (see my other posts about soju soda) or makgeolli soda depending on our mood.

My personal favorite is Icing, which I think is the original makgeolli soda brand. That night we also got the me 3% brand, too.

It may be nostalgia or else it's just because this is grapefruit flavored, but this is still my favorite option. However, I think I'd go for a soju soda over a makgeolli soda any day. I'd also go for a regular makgeolli over makgeolli soda any day.

However, if you're not a fan of grapefruit, definitely avoid this one! You can definitely taste the grapefruit.

The me 3% is yuja (citron) flavor. That's not my #1 choice of a citrus fruit, so maybe that's why it wasn't my #1 choice in makgeolli sodas. However, if you like a sweeter flavor, this is the one you should grab if you're in the mood for makgeolli soda. It has a slightly sweeter flavor than the Icing grapefruit flavor.

This is important to see. So, since it's makgeolli, you do need to mix up the contents a bit since it's unfiltered and it kind of settles a bit.

But, since it's a soda, it is under a lot of pressure, so it'll explode if you're too excited in your mixing.

It recommends using just your wrist to rock it 4-5 times. Then, since the carbonation will have increased, you have to open it slowly and carefully.

[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.
