Korean /Asian Beauty and Skincare Talk!

Recommended Posts

@@MissJexie not sure if you have received the cotterng Bubble Peeling pads (one use) from either the dermo2 memebox or jackpotbox, but they work. Those has AHA and fermentation extracts. I have also tried the Mizon Cherry Blossom Peeling gel and it smells so good! I don't know of any non-washing types, but after peeling there are usually globs of dead skin and I wouldn't want it to stay on my face lol  :P

 

Legendary ones are from Japan (Cure), and I do wish to see subs offering Japanese products soon. Or if Japan could start their global sub lol. Sometimes I feel like moving there, learning the language and starting one.

 

I would use my Clarisonic twice a week, and wedge a peeling gel in between those routine. My skin looks never better and the skincare prducts just absorbs right in!

 

Hmm I didn't get that box but I will definitely look into th eproduct!

I exfoliate every single day with my Paula's Choice AHA / BHA gels (depending on how my skin is acting and I never need to rinse after using it, which is why I was hoping I'd find something that I didn't have to rinse off. When I do use peeling gels etc, they don't seem to work that well for me since I regularly exfoliate, so I feel like the whole process is too tedious for not amazing results. My room is on the other side of my house from the bathroom, so I don't want to be rinsing anything else off once I'm done cleansing! :)

Ahhh I see. Yeah I hate leaving my room to the washroom too lol~ Risk getting seen with peels on face haha. Well, I don't know about exfoliating everyday...it seems a tad too harsh for my skin to handle, and it strips off the moisture, so the skin will react by producing more sebum. If anyone is having a breakout, it could be hormonal, from overexfoliating, undermoisturizing or unhygienic enviroment (towels, pillow covers). I speak from my experience because I had acne problems until a few years ago.  :(

 

Maybe a subtle facial wash with AHA/BHA is indeed a smart choice. I used Hada Labo Cleansers before and they work like a charm. They were not expensive either ($10?). It does not make the skin feel overly squeaky clean but just fresh enough.  :wub: And yeah, my clarisonic + pore gels + BB creams saved my skin.  ;) I wish I could recommend a no-rinse product but I haven't come across any..

 

edit: I found the Hada Labo (and mentholatum) US store! Free shipping for $35 & above.

Hello. My name is Angela and I have a mask problem. Went to Honestskin to check out their sale and somehow ended up order 20 sheet masks, 1 wash off face mask, and 2 hair masks. This is in addition to the masks I already have and have coming. In my defense, I'm going to share some and the prices were really good. Plus, I need to maximize the shipping costs right?

about beautique - they forgot to add my free samples and I sent them an email.  They are going to send me my free samples PLUS a 10% coupon to their store - which is great, because my mom REALLY LOVED the MBD Red Wine Masks and the Baby Foot Masks (not the peeling ones, but the moisturizing ones).  She also loved leaders Tomato coconut-bio masks and I picked up some off eBay. 

 

My mom had so much fun with her masks when I was out there!  lol.

OOOH nice! I'll definitely look more into those! You guys rock at giving suggestions! <3

I actually just asked them on instagram because I have to save my pennies before I can make a purchase. They said it's going on until the end of the month, so yay!

 

I also just saw on facebook that if you spend $35 on Lioele products, not only do you get the free shipping, but they're including a free hand cream as well...so they're just making it more and more obvious that I need to spend money LOL

prettyandcute.com has it for $25 and they ship worldwide, although I have no idea how much they charge. It's worth a shot, though! http://www.prettyandcute.com/Lioele-Active-Therapy-Ampoule-Whitening-p43.html

Omgosh don't wait!! The last sale they did on acne products, I had a cart full of the discounted My Beauty Diary boxes of sheet masks and they sold out the day before I was going to buy them! :(

 

I have a cart waiting to check out too, but I HAVE to hold off until Friday when my hubs get his paycheck so I can see if I can splurge or not. I reaaallly want to get backups of my favorites so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Shiseido has been widely available overseas since the mid 80s. I remember it from my teenage days. Ah, I feel so old now.

But sadly, their global products are very westernized and made for non-asian skin.

Oddly enough, these days domestic Shiseido is considered "poor quality" by young Japanese women.

And I kind of agree. Too many silicone fillers, too much alcohol, mediocre formulations, poor cost performance. Of course there are exceptions, but overall, it's quite average. Or less than average.

 

And after trying the hugely hyped Ultimune, I'm so utterly disappointed. 80 bucks for a bottle of alcohol and silicone with some fragrance and botanicals at the very end of the ingredient list is a bit much.

Ooohh... sorry I was living in Asia during my childhood says, so I don't know how it was like. But the Czech friends told me they have not heard anything about Shiseido before these past few years. Maybe in UK/US yeah. 

I do see alot of other sub brands being super famous instead of the higher end ones. Like Sana, Hada Labo, Koji, Dolly Wink (some from the same head company?).

I'm currently browsing around on RoseRoseShop, contemplating a haul now that some items on my wishlist have gone on sale. The shipping is way more reasonable than I was expecting, and the price on the Etude House Princess Makeup Table is so crazy good right now that I'm actually concerned that some of my settings are wrong: http://www.roseroseshop.com/en/20-sale/121369--etude-house-princess-make-up-table-1ea.html

 

Unfortunately, no matter how badly I want it, I just do. not. have. any available surfaces on which to put it... sigh. But maybe someone here does! ^_^

 

Their Elizavecca prices are really good right now too; I'm thinking of trying the Milky Piggy Water Lock Hydrogel Melting Mask (say it 5 times fast) - does anyone know what "melting" is supposed to mean in Korean skincare? I've been seeing it a lot.

@@flushblush Well, I'm not sure what is meant by melting in other products, but from the description on the page on RRS, the melting comes from products in/on the mask melting from the temperature of your face so it can absorb into your skin. In comparison, I got the Oseque Melting Cleanser from Memebox and it's more of the melt gunk off your face thing (I guess). So I guess it just depends on the product.

Thanks! I actually ended up going to the Elizabecca brand page in hopes of further clarification, and it seems like the mask is dry out of the package, but becomes "melty" when it comes in contact with your skin. You're right; it does seem to mean different things for different products, but it's never always clear to me regardless, if that makes any sense. Aaaand in an effort to reduce my shipping costs I decided not to get it anyway. :blush2:  It's a great deal and seems really neat, but I needed to make a choice and I have a lot of masks right now. And I've got a bunch of other neat treats in my cart - did you know RoseRose carries Jetoy?! I can easily justify a new kitty cat pouch; it can hold all the other goodies I'm ordering! :wizard:

    • I’m afraid that this resource does not become a “breeding ground” for viruses that will then spread at the speed of light. Therefore, I advise all visitors to read the https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-antimalware/ blog, which clearly states why this or that antivirus and its characteristics are used. Just do not be indifferent to these problems and selfish.
    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
