Awesome Presents!

My friends just returned from a trip to Japan and Korea, with the bulk of their time spent in Korea. They had asked me what I wanted them to bring back and I asked them to bring back samples of BB Creams.

First of all, from Japan they brought back a magazine, several different sakura treats (I love sakura), and Tokyo Banana. Tokyo Banana is this spongey cake that has a banana flavored cream in the center. Each cake is shaped like a banana. My whole family really loves this snack.

Next are the items from Korea and all that I can say is WOW! They brought back so many wonderful things for me. I am really blessed to have such good friends. From Etude House: there is a Hello Kitty cosmetic case (I love Hello Kitty!), Yogurt Wash Off Pack (not sure what this is--perhaps masks), Hand Cream with Shea Butter, and 2 BB Creams! One is a Dr. Oil Solution Anti-Shine BB Lotion and the other is BB Magic Cream. From Skin Food: Fresh Lime Salt Body Wash, Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF 20 PA+, Carrot Serum sample, Carrot Cream sample and Black Sesame Hot Mask sample, I think. From Tony Moly: Cherry Blossom Essential Flower Mask, Tokyo Cherry Blossom Foam Cleanser and Peach Hand Cream (I believe that this is the hand cream--I was going to order one from Sasa). From Nature Republic: Stem Cell Serum samples and Foundation samples.

Lastly, I also received several rolls of toilet paper. Okay, I know that this sounds really strange but it's special toilet paper. My friend called me from Korea and he said that his GF bought this huge pack of toilet paper and he had to lug it all around while shopping! He said that it got really heavy. LOL! So, what is so special about this toilet paper? It's Hello Kitty toilet paper!

It's so cute! I don't know if I can use it. It really does seem like such a waste to use it.

These are my awesome presents that my wonderful friends brought back for me. I'm looking forward to trying out all of the different products. I'm debating whether or not to review them since I know that many bloggers have already written reviews.

Wow what a super fantastic friend and what fantastic gifts!!

Skin Food is very hard to buy on Gmarket (near impossible I think) so that peach sake BB cream sounds very very intriguing...

I love Hello Kitty too and yes, I think it would be a waste to use it! Hehehehe. She's so darn cute.

Thanks for sharing this!!!!!!!!!!

PS I love Non-No as well! I still get this sometimes at Kinokuniya here in Sydney! Heh.

Awesome gifts! You have an amazing friend. You've got to let us know what you think about all these BB cream. I would love to find a good one!

Hello Kitty toilet paper is not that surprising, because I've seen Hello Kitty tampons when I was 11 LOL.

I though I would see some Majolica stuff for some reason lol. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

@BV - Yes, my friends are wonderful! I always bunnysit for them when they travel so they always bring me back lots of wonderful things. BTW, I LOVE your Hello Kitty television! It's so cute!

@Rica - LOL! I told them to surprise me with what they brought back. I actually asked for them to bring back samples but they bought actual product instead. Yeah, my friend had called me and asked me if I wanted Hello Kitty sanitary pads. (this friend is a guy!) I asked him if Hello Kitty was actually printed on it and he didn't know.

@Yumeko - Thank you so much for commenting. I will do a review soon. I really enjoy your blog.

@Nic Nic - I've got 3 rolls of the toilet paper. Can't bring myself to use it yet. Tokyo Banana is so good. I've got one more box left. They also usually bring back this Ichigo Choco Daifuku, which I really love but they couldn't find the brand that I like.

@Blair - Thank you so much for commenting. I'll be doing a review soon.
