New Obsession – Korean Skincare and Cosmetics

23 Jan

I have a growing obsession with Korean skincare and cosmetics.  After all, that is the birthplace of the BB and CC creams we’re currently rocking.

Their websites are  pink and girlie, I can’t stay away.

I have my eyes on these  from Missha

Missha Eye Stick Cream

Sometimes my skin around the eyes gets dry mid work day.  I love this idea of  stick eye cream, GEUMSUL VITALIZING STICK EYE CREAM $30.00

Here is what it says:  “Herbal eye care for healthy, luminous eyes.
Mild formula hydrates and protects delicate skin around eyes.
Stick type eye cream can be applied liberally and easily over and or under makeup.

Contains herbal ingredients to strengthen sensitive skin. Panax Ginseng Seed Oil protects, Safflower Oil moisturizes, and Evening Primrose Oil brightens skin.”

COMPLEXION COORDINATING BB

COMPLEXION COORDINATING BB SPF43/PA+++ NO.2 FLAWLESS COMPLEXION $34.00

From Missha – “Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF43/PA+++ gives you a clean, even more natural look! No.2 Flawless Complexion is a flaw correcting beige cream for clear and smooth skin.

CC BB Cream features the Inner and Outer Complexion Coordinating Systems to provide skin care benefits for smooth, flawless skin.

Inner Complexion Coordinating System:
1. Brightening – Giga White, Pomegranate Extract, Arbutin
2. Firming – Peptide, Adenosine
3. Moisturizing – Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Water
4. Soothing – Phytoncide, Cactus Extract

Outer Complexion Coordinating System:
1. Improve skin tone – Tripled Layered Color Capsules
2. Correct flaws – Skin Wrapping Powder
3. Even skin texture – Light Scattering Powder

Shade is comparable to M Perfect Cover #21 Light Beige – #23 Natural Beige.”

SUPER AQUA OXYGEN MICRO ESSENCE PEELING

SUPER AQUA OXYGEN MICRO ESSENCE PEELING $23.00

“The gel-type peeling essence is gentle and gives an intensive care to clean and hydrate skin.
Watch as it bubbles to remove dead skin cells, impurities, and oil.
The Oxygen Micro Peeling System has the benefits of peeling + nourishing + soothing + turn-over.”

Have you used a cosmetic from an Asian brand before?  What did you think?

    I personally love Asian branded BB creams because they’re actually the real deal and not like tinted moisturizers you see over here. I’ve used the Missha Perfect Cover BB as well as Skin79 and currently I’m using Etude House’s Precious Mineral BB, I love it! If you’re new into Korean skincare and beauty you should definitely check out brands like Etude House, Mizon, Skin Food, and Skin79! 😀

    I have found that Korean and Japanese products are some of the best skincare products ever! There is place that we like to shop at in Koreatown here in L.A called The Face Shop. http://international.thefaceshop.com/english/product/productIndex.jsp
    We love their products especially their face masks 🙂
