No, this is not another sheet-mask-toner-BB-cream post. Korean cosmetics are a lot more varied than that, as you will find out. What is so great about Korean cosmetics, you ask? For starters, most products really do what they say. Secondly, their multi-step skin care regimen is responsible for their baby-soft, dewy skin - do they even age? And, this I quote from Marie Claire: "The R&D is 12 years ahead the rest of the world" and they know what to do with many ingredients the rest of the world has not even considered for skincare. Having used Korean skincare products for more than a year now, I agree with all three.
One of my favourite websites to shop for Korean cosmetics is Jolse.com - they ship worldwide for free (just $2.50 extra worldwide if tracked) and will deliver expedited during the Holiday season, so if you are looking for last-minute treats, you are in the right place. There are little extra GWPs with every purchase PLUS there is a discount running on most products right until Christmas Day!
Korean cosmetics. The phrase generally screams BB cream, lip tint, skin essence and sheet mask. Problems with those choices are, shade matching for BB creams, skin type matching for essence and, well, a sheet mask as a Crimbo prezzie? For the beauty bargain/gift-hunter, the Korean cosmetics industry boasts of a dazzling array of nail, hair and foot care products of equally good quality. Which is why this posts focuses on some of them.
