We all know that when we go for a trip overseas, money will be spent even before you board the plane. More so if you're heading to a country where it is snowing. So here are the few things that kept my body intact when I went to Korea.
Guan Yu had previously mentioned that a friend of hers swears by Uniqlo's heat-tech products, so I decided to give them a go.
Stuff from Uniqlo:
Uniqlo fleece turtleneck:
Heat-Tech Knitted Leggings:
Heat Tech Thermal Top:
Put it this way... I will never EVER buy thermals from anywhere else apart from Uniqlo. Yes, they were that good.
Got an amazing sweater from H&M for SGD39.90:
Doesn't look very attractive there (points upwards) but the cut of the sweater's actually really nice. You'll see when I (eventually) do my outfit post for Korea.
SGD2 stuff from Daiso including earmuffs:
When you go to places where temperatures drop to -20 degrees Celsius, these are effing amazing. It kept my ears attached to my head, for one, and for 2 dollars, these babies were definitely worth every dollar.
Won't say much about these, but if your coat doesn't quite cover your wrist then this would do the trick.
Some additional sweaters bought online:
Eventually gave this to my sister cause it was a bit baggy for me but fit her quite okay.
Surprisingly thick and comfortable.
You know how winter coats (good ones, at least) cost typically from SGD100 onwards? Well, I got this amazing looking red one for...
HAHAHAHA! Yes, I'm a cheapo. I took a gamble on this one... I mean, come on, SGD35 for a bloody WINTER COAT??
AND it kept me warm up until the temperature decreased to less than -5 degrees Celsius, so that is pretty awesome.
Some TheFaceShop essentials:
Herb Day Cotton Face Wipes:
Aqua Tinted BB Cream:
This is the 2nd tube I've bought. I swear by this product cause it gives decent coverage, matches my skin tone well AND is very VERY VERY moisturizing.
I always apply a layer of this before I put BB cream on. Absolutely love this product too.
The last beauty product I spent on were Burt's Bees' Lip Shimmers:
Guan Yu got her hands on them first, and highly recommended them, so I decided to give them a go.
This shade is the darkest of the lot, and when I applied this, my sister said I looked as if I had just had some blood for a snack. Lol!
My favorite of the lot, because the color is not too intense and will go well with anything you choose to wear.
This just gives a nice shimmery effect, but if you have naturally pale lips, I suggest layering a lip tint underneath this lip shimmer.
That's all from me, on the must-have products when visiting a cold country!
