It is raining this morning – which has put a dampener on my plans to explore. However, gives me time to another post!
As mentioned in my previous post, the Innisfree Jeju House is located right next door to OSULLOC Tea Museum. Two birds with one simple taxi ride! I’m a fan of OSULLOC and a bigger fan of Innisfree, so it was a no brainer – this had to be one of the places that was on my visit list.
Here, they not only sell their skin care line (no make up, unfortunately), including some items that can only be found at Jeju House, but they also have a section where you can “Make Your Own Soap”, and the Innisfree Organic Green Cafe.
In order to make your own soap, you first need to purchase one of three sets – I picked up the Tangerine version to work with, and the Volcanic Pore one to try at home. There’s also a Green Tea version if you prefer. You can sit down at one of the tables, and there are instructions on the tablets at each seat, in Korean, English, Japanese and Chinese.
Here is what is inside each pack:
This is how each station is set up. Tablet in front, with some stamps, beauty pearl powder and texturised rubber work surface. Eventually, after following each step, you end up with this:
But I’m sure you’ll do much better! You can personalise your soap however you wish – and then wrap them in the wax paper:
Repeat as you wish, and then you’re done! Keep in mind, you need to allow a week for the soaps to harden first before using them. I’ll probably start using them once I get back to Australia.
At the cafe, I had a quick lunch from the Organic Green Cafe – Pink Lemonade & Fish Cake Soup with Rice Balls – 어묵탕 & 주먹밥
It was pretty good! The soup really tasted like fresh seaweed – this can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your position on seaweed. I personally like it a lot, and I also enjoyed the rice balls. The lemonade was slightly too sweet for my liking, but still refreshing, and the bottle is just too cute!
I managed to pick up a few more items from the Innisfree skin care line, but they’ll be in an upcoming haul post once I get back to Seoul.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Innisfree Jeju House. Its a lovely place to spend an hour or so, personalise your own soap and enjoy a beverage. If you’re going to visit OSULLOC Tea Museum, do check out the Innisfree Jeju House as well. Food, skin care and fun – what more could you ask for?
