oil cleanser: heimish all clean balm - works well and has a pretty design on the lid
lip tints: peripera airy ink velvet(my fav), chateau labiotte wine lip tint, etude house water gel tint(popsicle packaging)
sleeping pack: laniege one is my fav but it doesnt have cute/pretty packaging

Re: K-beauty product reccomendations (with cute or pretty packaging) reccomendations for dry, sensitive skin

Here are a few that I love, and I also have dry skin!

Banila Co.

- the original primer, keeps your makeup put so well and hydrating at the same time, also very lightweight and doesn't make your face feel sticky

- their CC cushion, I feel like this one is MADE for dry skin people, really does a good job at moisturizing. But it's really sheer coverage and it's not meant for long lasting, it's more for one of those school or work days when you don't feel like putting on a full face of makeup. 

 

Laneige water sleeping mask - does a good job at hydrating and is very easy to find

Nature Republic

- Aloe vera, i sometimes just put this on when I'm in the shower, it feels really refreshing and hydrating especially in the summer... great for after sun exposure 

- moisturizer, good for hydrating and doesn't become greasy. And it only costed me $10! 

- their cream blush, I didn't expect i'd like this one but damnnn it worked out great, Asian blushes tend to be more vibrant since in Asian makeup blush is more for brightening the colors on your face whereas Western makeup blush tends to also serve a contouring purpose. But anyway! The color is really cute and the texture is sooooo creamy and easy to blend out. 

 

And then lastly holyshit you *MUST* try this one if you have dry skin is Cosrx ultimate nourishing rice sleeping mask, it's SO hydrating, for the first time in a long time I feel like the hydration is not just staying on the surface level. And it also smoothes out your face if you're feeling a lot of rough textures.

Head to CVS for sheet masks.  They have several options under 3 bucks since they brought in a K-Beauty section from Peach & Lily. If you have an H-Mart near you they also have very reasonable sheet masks in the store and many of them have an Aritaum/Amore store which carry their own store brand of masks that are very good and inexpensive.

Hey @bratknits!  I just went to our local H-mart for the first time this past week!  It was interesting. The cosmetics were interesting but it was tough to look at them while the whole place smelled like fish. 

Re: K-beauty product reccomendations (with cute or pretty packaging) reccomendations for dry, sensitive skin

The fish counter is super busy on the weekends, it's huge, did you check it out? The bring in whole fish and do a lot of the processing right there, it's fun to watch but yeah can smell like a fishmonger. They have everything you can imagine, even had live crawfish this summer. The fish counter and the Aritaum are pretty much the reasons we go so I tend to ignore the downside. LOL

I did do a walk through just to see what they had. I was intrigued by the Korean barbecue!  And the snacks of course. I saw a bag of shrimp flavored chips @bratknits

Re: K-beauty product reccomendations (with cute or pretty packaging) reccomendations for dry, sensitive skin

@jozkid I love love love Korean BBQ - when we lived in Jersey we used to go to an all you can eat BBQ and it was so delicious, We shopped at H Mart and I was surprised they were here in Atlanta. However we found other Asian markets we like better.

Tony moly does have really nice sheet masks and you can get a like 12 pack for $10 on Amazon. It's not Korean but I love the Sephora brand sheet masks! They have the perfect amount of serum, they are not over saturated and they are reasonably priced. Plus they have a nice holiday set now where it can try a bunch of their masks

Re: K-beauty product reccomendations (with cute or pretty packaging) reccomendations for dry, sensitive skin

Two more Korean brands I would recommend are Missha and Too Cool For School. Sephora carries some TCFS products but not the majority of their skincare line. One of Missha's staple products is Time Revolution essence, ideal for dry skin. Missha is available at some Target locations however I've seen it on Ebay for cheaper. You'll find most Korean brands on Ebay. In Korea the shops hand out huge quantities of samples with purchases so look for mixed bags of these on Ebay as well since it's a great way to try a variety of product before you buy a large size. Just watch out for overinflated prices.

Look into Etude House or Tony Moly, they have it all and their products tend to be really cute and fun (and also affordable)! Essence is great to use after cleansing and toning your skin, it’s like the first step to putting nutrients back into your skin to help brighten and smooth it. I think oil cleansers are good for dry skin or to double cleanse, so that you won’t strip your skin of oils that protect it and cause overdrying!
