Word on the street is that Korean beauty products are where it’s at. They are affordable and the Koreans don’t compromise on the quality of ingredients going into them. Being of Korean decent and being an avid tester I can second that statement. Here’s the skinny. So before you go running to the nearest K-Town or shop online, let me give you some insight. Don’t be afraid of things called Peel Face, or Smile Foot Peeling. Ok, ok it’s really bad grammar, but just think of it as part of their charm. It makes it more real, and other worldly. I mean, who doesn’t want a face shampoo? I know I do.
So here are a few things that I can’t live without in the winter. When the cold wind hits, my lips call for Bee Bee Lip Mask. It’s really as simple as peeling the nutrient filled lip masks off the plastic and applying it to the upper and lower lips. It feels so crazy. It is wet and flimsy when you first adhere it then it starts to soak in and form to your lips. Peel off and voila, baby soft lips!
My next item on the agenda has to be The Face Shop’s Collagen Mask
This mask only cost $1.50 and I feel like I robbed the store. It is the best 15 minutes I have ever spent. When you take the Michael Meyer like mask out of the packet it will be very cold and wet. So make sure you are prepared for that, not to mention how scary you will look with it on. But! After 15 minutes this collagen filled cloth will make your face so happy. My skin felt instantly smoother, glowier (is this a word)? and plump. These are all good things, and your face will thank you for it.
My last go-to item would be a light everyday eye cream. I’m really enjoying the Chia Seed Eye And Spot Essence. If you are wondering what Chia seeds are, just think of it as a super food found in South America. Tribes have used it for strength and endurance for hundreds of years. These tiny seeds are power packed and really good for the body.
I like the fact that they use 100% Chia seed extract instead of water. Chia seeds absorb moisture 10x it’s own weight, holy moly! This is made from organic seeds, and without the synthetic additives that most beauty products contain. This also keeps my dry skin under my eyes moisturized and I have noticed less darkening. This is a winner!
These are my must haves for now. I have a whole bag of goodies left to test, I’ll let you know when I find more gems.
