Hey everyone! I’ve been wanting to try out Korean beauty products for a while now, as i’ve heard amazing things. Obviously, living in the UK, it’s hard to get your hands on them and shipping can be really pricey. I recently found a website, Korean Kosmetics, that supplies Korean beauty products to the UK and Europe. I checked a few reviews and everyone said how quickly shipping was and how great the products were, so decided to give it a try!
I didn’t want to order very much as I have never used the site before and am always cautious when ordering online, so I chose to purchase two face masks and a concealer to start with, as I wanted a mix of makeup and skincare. The three products only came to £13.50 and an extra £3.20 for First Class postage, and I received the products in two days!
The face masks I ordered were the Missha Pure Source Mask Sheets, which were £2.50 each. They have loads of options on the site with different benefits, so I decided to try the Green Tea mask, which claims to be brightening, and the Pearl mask, which claims to brighten and vitalise. I tried the Green Tea mask today and I am so impressed! The mask was filled with lots of serum and I left it on for 20 minutes. Afterwards, I noticed my pores looked minimised and my skin looked brighter and healthier! There was even some serum left over in the packet, which I applied afterwards to my face and neck, and gently pressed it in. I now have high hopes for the Pearl mask and wish I had ordered more!
I also bought the Etude House Surprise Concealer Kit, in the “Dark Circle Brightening” shade. I have wanted to try a peach corrector for some time now as I have heard they are great for brightening the under eye area, and at only £8.50 I felt I had nothing to lose! The packaging is a really cute pale pink and the kit comes with a peach corrector (on the left, below) and a concealer (on the right).
I really like the concealer so far, particularly the peach side. I have been applying it in an upside-down triangle shape underneath my eyes and it definitely brightens up the area. The concealers are also light and don’t crease underneath my eyes, which I do tend to find with many concealers. So far I am yet to find an under eye setting powder that I love, so need to find something amazing to set it with! For £8.50 it is definitely worth the money and I will continue trying it out!
Overall, I’m really pleased with the products I purchased from Korean Kosmetics and would highly recommend the company! Let me know if there are any Korean beauty products that you would recommend, I’d love to try some others!
