🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

As part of my New Year's resolution, I promised myself I would explore the world of Korean beauty a lot more than I have. I would love this to be a place to discuss and share your experience!

 

I am currently practicing the "7 Skin Method" every morning. This will help hydrate dry skin as well as balance sebum production is oily skin. I was a grease factory and am now very normal. This method is simply applying a hydrating toner 7 times in a row. You can use a cotton round, but I prefer to apply 5/6 drops to the palm of my hand and press it into my skin. I am currently using:

 

  • Missha First Treatment Essence 2X ($49)
  • Amore Pacific Single Extract Vintage Essence 1X ($145)
  • ElishaCoy Moist Up Hyalurone Ampoule Essence 4X ($10)

Results are immediate! My skin is plump and glowing. Now, I could NEVER give up my Good Genes and Luna, but this will definitely take the place of some very expensive skincare products I use like my Vintner's Daughter. I would love to hear about Korean Beauty products you have discovered. I'm all for spending in the name of great skin! ❀️❀️❀️

Pyunkang Yul and I are shopping for apartments together. It's true love πŸ’•

I love Pyunkang Yul! I've tried a few other items from the brand and they're good, but the essence toner is still my favorite PY product. I also like the ampoule - it is very thick! I use it like a sleeping mask in the evening or as the last step in my skincare routine, like an occlusive to really seal in all the moisture from my other products.

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@itsfi I plan on switching exclusively to Korean skincare. It gives me the results I want! 

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@darlyndar

Oooh!  All Korean skincare products? That sounds amazing. <3  What skincare products do you use? 

 

I have to be careful with products that are heavily fragranced, but so far, I have had good results with the Asian skincare products, K-beauty skincare in particular, that I have tried. Most, but not all, of my skincare routine is made up of Asian skincare products; I'd say, maybe 80%.  I have several masks, actives and treatments that are non K-beauty that I'll keep in my routine because they perform really well for me and I have not found a comparable Asian skincare product for it. 

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

I know right!! I'm already looking into what other products from the range I want to try. @fieldsofclover

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@fieldsofclover you're definitely getting me on board this train. Where did you order it from?

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

I grabbed one of the essences off Amazon, but I'll be ordering from OhLolly after this... I want to try more of the line and don't want to keep sweating about ending up with counterfeit product.

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@fieldsofclover I ended up getting way too excited and ordering from YESSTYLE before you even had a chance to reply lol. Anybody have experience with them? I also ordered the Secret Key essence and a few other odds and ends that they had on sale.

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

I do and really happy with everything I have received. They send it the next day but delivery can take some time depending on how long it takes to get through customs. I've specifically ordered my first Pyunkang Yul, hope you LOVE it as much as I do! @makeitup305

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@Aaliaa Thanks for letting me know. I don't mind it too much if it takes a bit, I’ve still got plenty of skincare to get through. I'm really excited to try it now that I've heard all you guys raving about it.

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

Ohlolly is where I purchased my Pyungkang Yul. I stumbled upon it on Amazon so I thought it would be an easy buy but didn’t realize all the counterfeit stuff on there. Let me know how the other products treat you @fieldsofclover!

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@darlyndar I'm going to be responsible and use up other stuff in my stash for a while, but an astragalus-based line is so "me" that I know I'll be getting the rest of it as a permanent thing. Literally the only thing that could get me away from it now is if there were any essence with ashwagandha in it!

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

Ok @fieldsofclover @Aaliaa @myinsidevoice @GG84 I have been doing my research and heard that layering lightweight eye creams is a good thing. So, I purchased Whamisa Chai Eye Cream. The reviews are good, the ingredients are better and the price is amazing. I’m asking for advice and opinions! @fieldsofclover Has me looking at the Korres Black Pine and I’m ready to get that too. My skincare game is on point....except my eyes. I’m tired of having high hopes only to be disappointed. K Beauty has been good to me. I reallllllly need something to work! The fine lines are back and I don’t feel like spending to get fillers again, but I will if I don’t find something soon

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

Ok, so for anyone interested in eye creams... the Korres black pine has done **measurable** lifting on my upper lid/socket area. Enough to where I, a person with hooded eyes who has always organized my makeup looks around having very little visible lid, am a little thrown off my game by it lol.

 

It does not seem to be an undereye fine line miracle cream thus far, but I'm not even finished with my little DS tube yet. Ymmv but I am all in on buying the full-size tube, and probably the sleeping oil after I finish up my Ren. Wowza.

subscribing to this BC sometimes I really do believe that...

subscribing to this BC sometimes I really do believe that if I can fill the hollows under my eyes it will fill the hollows in my heart lmao BUT, on a serious note, I (sadly) haven't heard anything groundbreaking from the k-beauty realm regarding eye care Smiley Sad Good luck!!

@darlyndar STOPPPPPPP I'm on a no buy. What u buy, I buy....

@darlyndar STOPPPPPPP I'm on a no buy. What u buy, I buy. So u buy nothing in Feb...got it? πŸ˜ƒ

Re: @darlyndar STOPPPPPPP I'm on a no buy. What u buy, I buy....

Lol! @GG84! I’m giving it my all and putting myself on a no-buy for the rest of February. I picked up 2 Butter Bronzers since they have a deep shade now and the new Makeup Revolution concealers since they’re supposed to be dupes for Shape Tape...and I need to restock. They come Friday. I just need to repurchase my Take The Day Off Balm and I’m dunzo til March. I hope. I have too much makeup and I want a new mattress. Lol

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@darlyndar Looking forward to hearing how this goes! The Black Pine is definitely lifting things... jury is still out on whether it's filling anything. But I'm not even finished with the 4mL sample so it definitely has some punch.

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@fieldsofclover I randomly put The Ordinary Caffeine Solution in my cart the other day and bought it. It comes today. I need your investigative skills on how it works. Lol. 

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

@darlyndar Maybe we can do a YouTube video about it πŸ˜œπŸ˜‰

Re: 🌱 Korean Beauty: East Meets West-Skincare Edition 🌱

Omg @fieldsofclover You would be the Alton Brown of skincare and makeup!!!!! Can we start yesterday????
