TRAVEL DIARY: Beauty souvenirs in my suitcase

March 11, 2015 Charlotte Cho

Hello, USA! I'm back from my adventures in Seoul. One of the hardest things about travel (besides jet-lag, which is getting to me right now -- it's breakfast time and I feel like I need to eat dinner) is packing. Take one look at this:

One personal item and one carry-on? You gotta be kidding me. Actually for international travel, you get two checked bags. But still.

It's a miracle everything fit, right? And this is only a fraction of what I got. I'm happy to say the struggle was worth it, because now I get to give you guys a first-hand peak into my personal haul, as requested by @kterryweiss and @solstice106 on Instagram.

In addition to getting feedback from you, meeting with industry experts, and doing vigorous research across Seoul, my curation process often requires some serious testing (read: playing :) with products.

These are just a few of the ones that have made the cut for me to try. The best, of course, will end up on Soko Glam so you guys can give them a go yourself and play too!



P.S. I try my hardest to listen to what you guys have to say! Some of these items were inspired by your suggestions from the Back to Seoul Giveaway
