I stumbled upon Village 11 Factory (빌라쥬11팩토리) store last fall on one of my hangouts with @dianahenry08 when she was visiting Seoul. We were walking around Garosu-gil (가로수길) and decided to walked into this store because of their body wash vending machine and their store displays, which we noticed when passing by the entrance. Talk about don't judge a book by its cover, it certainly applies to this place because from the outside, I would never imagined how fun the interior of the store would be. I mean, there are 2 floors, divided into different sections, and each sections have their own themed decorations. And all of them are pretty well designed and executed.
To be honest, I walked into the store because I was curious. That's about it. Never imagined that I would be walking out of the store purchasing something—which I did ended up doing by the way, thanks to a certain friendly staff that gave me an explanation of their Body Oil Wash and asked me to try washing my hands with their samples. After that, I'm sold. Their Body Oil Wash (which probably is the majority of product displayed all over the store) is probably one of the nicest body wash that I've ever used. It moisturizes my skin without leaving that oily residue plus the scent is really nice. I'm not an expert at product review and describing this kind of things nor somebody who has been using and testing different kinds of body wash (which I'm sure there are better ones out there), but I'm telling you, if you are in the store, at least give it a try. This is probably one of a few products that I got really excited telling my friends about (other than camera equipments, electronics and food stuff). And I actually brought some of my friends to this store on separate occasions, asked them to try it out, and they too liked the product and ended up buying the Body Oil Wash. So at least I'm not that bias ;)
And oh by the way, if you are wondering, this is NOT a sponsored post. I just like it that much.
