Welcome into the wonderful world of traditional Korean luxury cosmetics (= Hanbang), which is almost like magic with its ancestral medicinal ingredients that are not well known (especially in the West). Yet, trust me, it's very far from folklore. And even if these ingredients have been popular for several centuries in Asia, they can now be combined with modern high technology like it's the case with the famous Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream. Let me introduce it to you!
I only mentioned it as a passing comment in my article about the Sulwhasoo flagship store last spring. Yes I definitely took my time to do a review of the famous Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX.
During my trip to Seoul last September, I was lucky enough to visit this architectural gem that is the sublime flagship store of the very prestigious Korean skincare brand Sulwhasoo. Today, let me introduce you to Sulwhasoo, a true flagship of the Korean cosmetic industry. I will also tell you more about the wonderful "shopping experience" I tried out in this beautiful place.
Now that you've all seen my "small " collection of cushion foundations, I have no choice but to tell you a little more about them! What are my favorites, why do I like them and what do they look like in action on my skin. So here's my best-of of Korean cushion foundations, 2021 edition!
Cushion foundations... Still not very well known outside Asia, but I definitely believe they really deserve more attention! So today, let's take a closer look at what exactly a cushion foundation is, why (in all objectivity) the best of them are the Korean ones, who can use them (not only Korean peoples!), how to choose them and the best way to use them! I will tell you everything and I will also show you my small (lol) collection in today's post!
This review is long overdue, I know! I tried this essence for the first time almost 4 years ago, so it's not really a genuine discovery anymore. I've even repurchased it several times since then. It's quite a unique product, with its own unique story and I think I owed it a dedicated article. So here is my review of the Vintage Single Extract Essence from the Korean premium skincare brand Amorepacific!
I've been wanting to tell you more about Belif, the most European Korean skincare brand, for quite some time now! And I'm going to start with one of their most popular products for years, the Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream.
I introduced you to my morning routine last week, so I thought we'd keep the fun rolling with my evening routine! In this week's article, I describe its goals, the ingredients and which products I prefer to use at night, with the steps' order of my anti-ageing layering skincare routine.
It's undoubtedly the most luxurious foundation in my collection! Today, let me introduce the Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation by Pat McGrath Labs, and I'll also answer the question that everyone is asking: does this $68 foundation give you a top model skin? ;)
This is a story about a Korean cosmetic product… Known to be a dupe of Estée Lauder ANR serum at first (yes, another one!), it gradually became a cult K-Beauty product. Today, I’m introducing you to the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule serum (which has changed quite a bit over the years!).
Bacteria in skincare products… This idea is a bit scary! However, at the moment, probiotic-based cosmetics are literally proliferating in the beauty industry. Today, let's talk about this trend, which is only just starting but is already very promising!
I'm sometimes a little bit hesitant to talk about certain 'cosmetic discoveries' here. Especially when I find a product that ticks all the boxes of the cosmetic hidden gem but that can be quite complicated to purchase (yes, even online). This is actually what happened to me with the ma:nyo Bifida Complex Ampoule...
