Korean /Asian Beauty and Skincare Talk!

Recommended Posts

Very interested in Korean skincare. I see it brought up on beauty sites and forums a lot. Any links to guides or lists of Korean brands/products to try?

What started the whole K-beauty frenzy a few years ago was Memebox because they were the first ones to bring k-beauty skin care boxes to market. They had some outstanding boxes at a very great value that they were releasing continuously and people bought them like crazy (myself included :D ). They changed their business model since then and no longer to boxes primarily but they still have some. They have cosmetics now too but they do do occasional skin care boxes that are worth checking out as a kind of a starter kit for K-beauty. Sokoglam is a great website too. Once you get more familiar with K-beauty products, Korean Beauty Dep is a great website to order from because the products ship out directly from Korea at a great price. There are other websites too. Target now carries great K-beauty brands. Missha is really good, Mizon and Laneige are good too. Cosrx and Benton are great brands too.

 

Here are some sites to check out

I'll add a few others resources.

 

www.cosdna.com is a great reference to use to see if certain ingredients have been shown to be a known irritant or has an effect on acne prone skin etc.

 

Amazon and ebay have a ton of Kbeauty sellers, but do your research as far as fakes or expired products. Do your research.

 

Memebox run great sales.

 

Hallyu Cosmetics has the best and quickest shipping prices and times.

 

If you can wait, getting it directly from the Korean Company is the cheapest and will generally offer free shipping.

What are your current favorite K-beauty products?

 

I've really enjoyed the Skinfood black sugar mask lately. It leaves my skin so smooth. I've also been using the Pig collagen jelly cream and when left overnight, I wake up with so much more smoother skin in the morning.

I just read about these cleansing balls by May Island. The balls look like Guerlain meterorites but bigger. Has anyone tried these?

 

I found them being sold on this site and looks like the reviews are good. If I wasn't drowning in Korean skin care, I would order them right away. I'm a real sucker for the packaging. lol http://www.glowrecipe.com/products/mayisland-multi-bean-clean-care-cleansers

Has anyone tried the gold sheet masks? I saw Beauteque has some. How are they compared to other sheet masks?

 

Here is a picture of Intracell mask that I found on Beauteque

Does anyone have any suggestions for a night emulsion and night mask? I use Etude House, Moistfull Collagen Emulsion, but not a big fan. I'm 25 and wanting more anti wrinkle and help fight dry skin up in cold Maine.

I read an interesting article by the K-beauty store owner of Peach & Lily. She said in the article that many times she uses 2 sheet masks back to back in lieu of different serums. She says to use caution though and make sure not to use two vitamin C masks back to back because of the acids in them. I just wanted to pass on the info. I think 2 sheet masks sounds interesting and I might have to try that. Has anyone tried doing that?

Has anyone used the Enature Birch juice essence? I saw it being sold at SokoGlam and it looks interesting.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
