    Since Laneige and Missha is from Korea, these lines of products would be cheaper right? Heard Laneige WSP & Strawberry Yogurt Pack is selling at SGD20 in Hongkong. Are we ripped off in Singapore?

                  TFS, Etude would be good buy.
                  Korea has so many different skincare brands. There are also more expensive brands that can only be found in departmental store like O Hui and coreana.

                  Laniege was very cheap in korea. I got Laniege from the Aritaum (a store opened by amore pacific), and their flagship store (myun deong). Aritaum carrys other lines that we do not have in Singapore all from Amore pacific. Its worth to check them out. (e.g IOPE, Mamonde)

                  My best buy from the trip was the Laniege autumn make up set (1 pressed powder, 1 Eyeshadow and 1 Highlight and blusher set) for approx 50000won, that's around SGD50.

                          TFS I would say their mask is good, their whitening series that is not bad (tried their whitening essence), bodycare! I found my HG breasts gel! Cheap and effective

                            ON the average, Laneige is 30% cheaper in korea. Tax free at the airports. The water bank essence and essential skincare range is about 50% cheaper than Singapore.
                            Essential refiners are abt SGD 18.
                            Sunblock SGD19,
                            Water Bank Essence SGD 23,
                            Sleeping Pack SGD 23.

                            TFS and Missah aside.Check out the Pond's collection in Korea. it's different and more refined than the USA range. Laneige's sister brand IOPE is also a popular product amongst Korean women. I read that IOPE is very secretive abt their ingredients, some blogs speculate that they use synthetic ingredients and only traces of natural stuff. But IOPE works wonders! Korean women incorporate IOPE essence into their Laneige routine. This is on my shoppping list for 2010. Meanwhile, i am trying to get my hands on samples.
                            Did you get your product there?
