Where did I bought this, how much, and availability? I didn’t buy this. I got this as a freebie when I bought a COSRX product on Amazon. I looked up on their site and saw that it costs $6.00. It is widely available on the net but I am not sure if there are fakes so be very careful on buying. Buy only on trusted sites/stores.
How is the packaging? It is cute. The illustrations are very informative. It shows the step by step procedure and the effects of it.
