Korean /Asian Beauty and Skincare Talk!

Recommended Posts

I want to say that the CosRx AHA/BHA Toner and the Snail 90 Treatment Essence might be my new favorite product combination. My skin was so soft all day until the next morning, too! Like soft. VERY soft. I kept touching my cheeks because I couldn't believe it.

And that was with putting nothing else on. No moisturizer, nothing.

isn't that stuff great?  I love it too -  are these the first CosRX products for you, saffyra?

I think I have one spot treatment from them that came in a Memebox but these were the most "important" products I've used. I've been wanting the toner for awhile but I didn't know a thing about the Snail 90 essence. It might take over the spot that the Benton SnailBee essence has in my life. :D

YesStyle Basics+ Beauty Set - Round 2

 

Imgur Album with lots of pictures: http://imgur.com/a/e49BP

 

Ordered 6/11

Shipped 6/19 (another item was back-ordered)

Arrived 7/1

Cost: $29.90 (no coupon this time)

Value: $87-95

 

Mini-Review: While the value of this set is slightly lower than the first one, I'm still pleased. There is still a consistent mix of Korean, other Asian and European brands. There is still a mix of skincare and makeup. The packaging still leaves something to be desired, but the overall value for money paid is great. I enjoy the surprise of this set, and I'll probably order others in the future. I'm happy to see another Cure Water Treatment (impossible to find). The SK-II mask will be used quickly. A few of the items are scented, so they will likely become gifts. For me, personally, this 2nd set confirms that this is a better buy than a lot of other mystery boxes, and it is a nice replacement for the Memeboxes of old that I miss so much. That's certainly related to my personal preference; I don't begrudge differing perspectives. For comparison, my other review is Post #2312 earlier in this thread.

 

Items: 

  1. Ahava Gold Edition Mineral Hand Cream (Full Size - 100mL) $12
  2. SK-II Facial Treatment Mask (Full Size - 1 mask) $9
  3. Etude House Mugwort Sheet Mask (Full Size - 1 mask) $2
  4. Sofina Enriched Foam Cleanser Set (Full Size - 1 cushion/puff + 1 tube wash) $30
  5. Ladykin One Touch Bling Glow Lipstick in 08 Fall Rose (Full Size) $9

  7. Holika Holika Perfume Dress Midnight Glam Body Cleanser (Deluxe Sample) $4
  8. Avene Antirougeurs Anti-redness Dermo-cleansing milky fluid (Deluxe sample) $4
  9. Shiseido Luminixing Satin Face Color RD103 Petal (Deluxe Sample) $10
  10. Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF 100 (Regular Sample) $2

very nice! I have the fall rose lipstick and I love it :)

 

Great to hear! It looks like a really wearable color. I'm considering putting it into a makeup themed gift box I'm putting together for a family member.

I'm really liking the Klairs brown sugar scrub. It really makes my skin so smooth and my pores looks so much better. I used it again this morning and putting makeup on after (after using skin care) was a dream. My skin looked and felt so much better. I need to remember to use this on a consistent basis.

I just used a sheet mask last night and every time I use them I wonder why I don't use them more often. After 15 minutes my skin looked totally lifted and smooth. I looked like I had had a face lift. The results are really amazing for me every time I use Korean sheet masks. I've yet to try a sheet mask that didn't provide results. What makes them so much more effective than the main stream counterparts? Is it the ingredients? I'm just wondering how they can perform so much better and I hope some of you who are more experienced in Korean skin care might know. :)

Hi!! I'm new to this side of the forum, so I apologize in advance if I am posting in the wrong area!

I'm new to Korean skin care products. Any suggestions on where to buy products that ship from the U.S.? I just don't have the patience to wait for long shipping times! I don't mind paying more....that's the price I pay for my immediate gratification problems!!

Thanks!!

I got my deluxe sample of belif aqua bomb from sephora (use promo  code aquabomb with a $25.00 or more purchase) and OMG - this gel cream is perfect for oily and normal to combo skin types.  It is so hydrating and I love it.  I purchased the full size version.  I might have found my cream for the summer..

 

they also make a moisturizing bomb that is for drier skin types and they have more skin care at sephora.

I just placed an order (sephora) to get a sample of the belif true cream moisturizing bomb. I used code TRUTHBOMB. It says it's for normal to dry skin and mine is combo but I'm looking for a new night cream and I like to use heavier creams for night time. The aqua sounds good for day time.

for those who love those toners, they have them as a 1+1 for $9.99 - those toners ARE HUGE.  I know that  many readers loved them - especially the milk toner.

love the brightening milk toner! I use it daily and there are no breakouts and no irritation. Works way better than any mainstream toners. I have used/tried so many. The bottle is huge and lasts a long time. That's a great price on their site.

the hair products are good too - and those are so heavy and HUGE.  I can see my bank account breaking over there - that free shipping on 50+ is fantastic - cause I will be getting those heavy heavy items.

Not gonna shock anyone here that has known me for a while but I love my dairy beauty and gotta say that I love the Tonymoly bananas (lip balm, sleeping mask and hand cream are fab), secret key milk toner (not gonna shock you there) and the bounce cheese cream by dear by enprani. I think most I have used with dairy has been good though except that Xaivita (I think that was the name) goat milk cream. That junk ended up on my feet and even then it was too greasy.

 

Btw I went to do an order on secret key int website but there's a weight limit on free postage (I won't pay postage) and won't deliver orders over 2k so didn't order as only wanted toners. No intense ice sleeping pack on there that I could see either

    • My personal recommendation would be the beauty products from Spa Ceylon, a Sri Lankan brand that combine Ayurvedic ingredients to form natural beauty products. A favourite would be the Neem & Tea Tree Purifying Mineral Masque as it worked wonders on my sensitive blemished skin.
