New In: the Jojoba Company @Urban Space (bloggers meeting)

I had a first bloggers meeting in Korea
and it was held at Urban Space
(you can follow the twitter @urban_space
and on fb at beauty.urbanspace)
Urban Space has a shop on the first floor
which sells 20 different cosmetic brands (that I know of) from
all around the world from like the U.S., Australia, France and etc.

second floor is the spa
the price is at about $80-$110 using
Sundari, June Jacobs, Sodashi, or Aromatherapy Associates
depending on your personal consultations regarding your health/conditions

this perfect beauty place is right across Galleria department stores
few minutes walk down from Caffe Bene
(if you live in Korea or if you ever decide to visit,
I recommend you visit the place)
this is where they sell EviDens de Beaute
(the only place that sells the brand's products in Korea as of moment)

I see the theme of this place as natural, trendy yet so pure
I can trust that these products will suit my facial and body cares
because they are organic brands :)

I met along with 6 more bloggers from Korea
we were met with pretty smile from online marketing assistant manager Tara Kim and already set snacks of carbonated water, iced Americano from Coffee Bean, macarons, pies, and other sweet desserts and fruits!






take a look at some of the products I so wanted to get!!!
(I bought body soap from MISTRAL for my aunt after the event)
I loved the hand cream from MISTRAL (at around 12 bucks),
travel kits from Malin + Goetz,
and all the serums from each brand
greedy much?





let's talk about the gifts we bloggers received
we were met with two pouches, (that blingbling covered one- it has a little bow and it's perfect to carry around your accessories inside, and the plain rosy pink pouch) intense overnight renewal cream (50mL 77,000 Korean won), hydrating day cream (85mL 68,000 won), and pure golden jojoba oil (30mL 27,000 won but if you want 85mL it sells for 34,000 won unbelievable price!)

*if you reside in other countries, I've linked each product back to official pages so follow them for the price and to check with where to buy

i loved the petal covers of these jojoba company's products
that's why I took the products out from the bottom of the package
so I don't have to ruin the perfect tops

top two photos are my attempts in testing the oil and day cream firsthand when I got to the store

let's talk about the creams first

for day cream: it smells cinnamon-y to me...
i usually thought the cream products would be sticky
and I thought I don't need to apply them since I already have oils on my face
but this day cream was so light like a moisturizer
It has rose oil for balancing your skin and perfectly revitalizes your skin with collagens and lifting/firming ingredients

for night cream: i loved using it with the oil together
it works as a sleeping pack then
i like putting lots of hydrating cream overnight
because i know that no matter how much I put them on
in the morning they are perfectly absorbed
i could feel more hydration in this lemony colored night cream more than from the day cream of course
I especially recommend it to those especially having dry skins
and or having those days of really exhausted and tired days off from your works and all the dusts you are covered up with from outside activities

last but not least with the pure golden jojoba oil:
this is a smart buy for any one of you
even those who had doubts in oil products like I originally was

this can be used from head to toe everywhere
men to women, girls to boys, even babies
this is 100% pure product
(the ingredient looked like a coffee bean but it was used only when it was naturally fallen to the ground, so this is even natural friendly environment work conditions isn't it?)

it can be used as a makeup cleanser (and then use foam cleanser if you'd like), used on cuticles after doing nail cares, hair essence and protection, foot moisturizer, for stretch marks, acne problems and those little marks and scars you have afterwards, pore refining, wrinkle filling, anti-aging etc. etc. etc. all!

such a smart product I didn't lie!
I make my brother mix two-three drops of oil with body cream every night to be applied all over his arms and legs before he goes to sleep

I liked the smell of this oil because it smells kind of earthy
I meant like the ground you reach first step into
in the fresh morning, if that makes sense to you in any ways
just picture it beautifully :)
I could trust that this product was natural and pure right off from the first meeting

hoped you like the products urban space recommended to us
and now I'm recommending them all to you back!
(by the way for conversion, just make 1 dollar into 1,000 Korean won.)

now you'll know that these products
are budget and natural friendly both!!!
if you are interested in browsing the products
go visit
(to see what other brands they provide with)

I tend to buy more beauty products than clothes, but as for Korean products I'd fall weak to my knees.

I'm now searching frantically for Hanskin BB cream, it's the only brand that works on my skin. I believe the company went into administration? :S

Thanks for sharing Michelle, I'll be visiting Seoul in Nov :D
