I used the Elishacoy cacao brown sugar scrub on my face this morning and really like it. It felt almost like a microdermabrasion scrub once I was done. I couldn't believe how smooth my skin looked after. Does anyone else use this scrub? I wish I remembered which box/company I got the scrub from. It had been sitting in my drawer for a while and I decided to get it out and try it. I'm trying to use up my products more now instead of buying new but it's slow going. :lol:

Wow! I just got my first order from Bisou Beauty Bar and I am super impressed! The pricing isn't the cheapest but it is in Canadian funds (which means a lot with our dollar at the moment) and they offer free shipping on orders over $65.  They have lots of sales too.

 

But the most impressive thing is what came in the box besides my order:  a handwritten note with a 10% coupon code for my next purchase and the most free samples I have ever received!  Check it out:

I came to Busan for a while and still looking around for OHUI shop. Seems to be difficult to find a big store of OHUI in Busan. Is there anyone know where is the best place? Thanks

Does anyone or has anyone used this lip mask by Laneige? It's called lip sleeping mask. It sounds interesting. I'm on a no buy right now so won't be buying it but will consider it in the future http://peachandlily.com/products/lip-sleeping-mask

Tracy at Fanserviced-b did a quick review of this, basically saying that the Pure Smile lip treatment is way better at a fraction of the cost. I love the Pure Smile, it's heaven in a tube but you have to be okay with snail products on your lips, lol!

Thanks for the info! Good to know. I'll look into the pure smile once my no buy is over. :)

I was wondering if anyone knows of any Korean BB creams that work well that don't have dimethicone, parabens, or mineral oil in them? Or are those ingredients integral to BB cream? My favorites so far for results and color are Skin79 Super Plush Beblesh Balm Triple Funtions Hot Pink and Missha M Perfect Cover #21. I'm not obsessive about avoiding those ingredients, but it would be nice.

@@sleepykat, i have no exact name in my mind for now but as i believe Innisfree products are quite natural and free from such additives like paraben, mineral oil and so on. One i recommend here: Have a look there you might find something quite suitable for you. Good luck buddy!

Hey guys! So I'm at a nu skin convention (anyone heard of it? How's their products? I don't know much about the brand) and they have this product that is supplements that you take daily that has anti-oxidants and stuff that's supposed to help with anti aging from the inside out rather than just topical stuff. That got me curious cuz I'm currently trying to take care ofy skin topically but would love to learn more about what I can take to help on the inside. Anyone take any supplements that they like or recommend??

Never heard of the brand before so I checked out their website. Looks similar to other supplement/skin care type companies. Their essential oils remind me of doTerra. Looks like it's a newer company too. Do they offer samples? I would try samples first to see how your skin/body reacts.

I had forgotten about the Missha oxygen mask I had so I used it last night and loved the results. It just make my skin tone so much more even and my skin felt so smooth. I need to leave this on the counter or somewhere near by so I remember to use it more often. Anyone else use this mask? Have you found similar ones from other K-beauty brands? I like the mask as an alternative to the sheets masks which I find are a pain to apply. The sheet masks work so well once on but I'm more of old fashion when it comes to masks and like to just apply it straight from the jar vs using the sheets. This oxygen ones works in 2-5 minutes which is also a huge plus when I don't have 20+ minutes for wait for a sheet mask.

Ello!

 

I am looking for suggestions, I use OLAY Facial Moisturizer, but I am looking for a Korean Facial Moisturizer that like that? Any suggestion? SPF most deft! Thanks!

 

 

Hi!

 

Usually the Korean moisturizers don't come with a SPF built in so you would want to buy the moisturizer and the SPF cream separately. I love the Korean BB creams because they are moisturizer and SPF in one while also acting like a tinted moisturizer or light foundation. Dr. Jart sold at Sephora is an excellent brand. Missha is also great. Here is a link to their BB cream http://www.misshaus.com/makeup/face/bb-cream/m-perfect-cover-bb-cream-spf-42-pa.html

 

Memebox has one cream that has SPF and moisturizing in one so that might be more like the Olay moisturizer you've been using https://us.memebox.com/skincare/sunscreen/aloe-soothing-sun-cream-spf-50?pdref=category#product-tabs

 

Also here are some moisturizer suggestions (without SPF):

http://sokoglam.com/products/super-aqua-cell-renew-snail-cream (I currently use this and love it)

 

Hope this helps and hope others have suggestions for your too. :)
