Innisfree, my first timer!


When you're in Hong Kong you got to shop and buy something of course. By something like, Asian beauty brands that are not available in my country (The Netherlands) and yes I know you can order Asian beauty brands online nowadays but when you got the chance to enter a real flagship store, its so much more fun! And you might get great deals too. Like that day when I enter Innisfree shop for the very first time.


Wanneer je in Hong Kong ben, mag het shoppen natuurlijk niet ontbreken. Vooral het shoppen van Aziatische verzorgingsproducten want deze zijn haast onvindbaar in NL en ja, ja je kan ze online bestellen - I know - maar een echte winkelketen binnenstappen is veel leuker! En er zijn fijne acties. Net als die dag toen ik voor het eerst een Innisfree winkel binnenstapt.

Then there was a membership card

Because I have purchased at Innisfree for over X-amount of money, I was legally ok to sign up for their member club! I told the nice saleslady that I`m from EU and therefor perhaps not possible for me to sign up for the HK member club, but it was fine! I then received a present of a member starter kit of facial washes which I gave to my niece.
Innisfree Aloe revital
From the Innisfree Aloe revital line I got the: soothing gel 300ml and the sleeping pack 100ml.

That`s right a free gift on Innisfree Aloe revital line when purchasing 2 items! Thanks for this miniature special kit version!
Lets try it out!
a little review

I have learned something about my skin today thanks to a Holika Holika salesman but this story-haul is for the next time since this post is all about Innisfree. Anyway. I`ve been told that my skin is dry! Or at least not hydrated enough. Aloe vera is the key to diminish dry skin apparently and so I`ve been using the Innisfree Aloe Vera revital for 2 days now, and I have news.

Soothing Gel

I apply the soothing gel after I washed my face/body and I must say, my skin feels softer than usual in the next morning. Which is good! I also applied this gel on my face and not only it feels soft too but my pores seems to be smaller as well. I can`t wait to see what this gel will bring me in the future because I am liking what I see so far.

Sleeping pack

I have always wanted to try out a sleeping pack because I remembered everyone raved about Laneige `Water Sleeping Pack` product but I find it a bit pricey. The Innisfree Aloe Vera revital sleeping pack suits better to my budget. The result so far is minimum. Nothing spectacle happend nor no break outs/allergy reactions either which is good.

I am not really that fan-girling over this Lee Min-Ho dude trust me.

My life in HK so far


I thought I could handle it but I'm obviously slacking and delaying posting blogposts! Sorry! I've been making quite long days, full of family meeting duties, buyings and of course eating and therefor leaving no time at all to blog. Pretty a good excuse if you ask me and that's why a quick sneak peek of my recent HK life in todays blogpost.


Het wordt een eitje dacht ik, maar niet heus, want ik ben overduidelijk het bloggen links laten liggen. Excuses! Ik ben best lange dagen aan het maken met veel familie bijeenkomsten, inkopen doen en natuurlijk eten. Tevens ook mijn excuus voor het late blogposten. Daarom een snelle preview van mijn HK leven dusver in de blogpost van vandaag.

Hiking in a dress at my first visit at Lamma-Island is perhaps not the best choice, but who cares if you got the chance to see this view!
Fresh Turkish coffee (or milktea) just a few blocks away from my apartment. @Coffee On The Sand

It never gets bored.
One accurate thing: today I went to a cat café.
HK food makes my HK life quite good, thank you! Of course there will be a detox foodplan after I return home...

4 Hour tea time


Lets face it, when you see a huge line in front of a restaurant here in HK, you know that this place is good, or good and cheap. Australia Dairy Company (澳洲牛奶公司) is a case of a good and cheap restaurant. Don't expect great service or hygiene, people come here mainly for the food and the authentic HK 'tea eatery' feeling and atmosphere. Lets see what me and my family ate here!


Eerlijk is eerlijk, wanneer je een lange rij ziet bij een restaurant hier in HK, dan weet je dat dit restaurant goed is. Of goed en goedkoop. Australia Dairy Company (澳洲牛奶公司) is zo,n eentje. Verwacht geen top service of hygiëne, mensen komen hier hoofdzakelijk voor het eten en voor de authentieke HK 'thee huis' sfeer. Laten we hier beneden kijken wat ik en mijn familie gegeten hebben!

We ordered
1 ovaltine
1 hot milk tea
1 lemon ice tea
2 steamed Chinese egg pudding
2 toast

I must say that I cringed a bit because of the lack of hygiene and how small the space were. My aunt who has been eating at 澳洲牛奶公司 since she was in middle school, told me that the taste remained the same, which is very nice! Only the price has increased over the years.
