KOREAN BEAUTY Chosungah 22 – Bounce Up Pact Ultra

KOREAN BEAUTY Chosungah 22 – Bounce Up Pact Ultra

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about 3CE Duo Cover Crayon. This is the Bounce Up Pact Ultra* from Chosungah 22 which is a Korean brand I’d never heard of before I was sent this product to try out. Chosungah is the name of the first professional make-up artist in Korea and her brand of make-up offers products ‘with a twist, allowing women all over the world to enjoy make-up as a form of play’. This is basically a thick powder foundation product but it gets its name from the fact that it’s made of a mixture of oil...

KOREAN BEAUTY 3CE – Stylenanda Duo Cover Crayon

KOREAN BEAUTY 3CE – Stylenanda Duo Cover Crayon

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about Vely Vely Lipstick in Red Rouge. This is the Stylenanda Duo Cover Crayon* from 3CE, this one is shade #04 which has been created to highlight and contour. I have to admit I find something comforting and satisfying about a crayon I think it’s because they’re chunkier than a pencil and feel sturdy in the hand. This crayon is dual-purpose and has a product at either end. One is a dark beige concealer ideal for covering small blemishes or the under-eye area, or for contouring small areas, as you can apply it straight...

KOREAN BEAUTY It’s not for dogs…

KOREAN BEAUTY It’s not for dogs…

“Is it for dogs?” was my husband’s first question when I showed him this Homme Terrior* All In One product from Korea! Obviously the name shows more than a slight resemblance to a type of dog here in the UK, but it’s definitely a product for men! I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about 3CE Long Wear Eye Crayon. This Homme Terrior All In One reminds me a bit of an aftershave from the 1970s with its strong black bottle and golden lion on the lid. I was actually a bit surprised when I received it from...

KOREAN BEAUTY Vely Vely – Lipstick in Red Rouge

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about Magic Capsule Silky Make Up Base from i-MIIX. This is a Vely Vely Lipstick from Korean make-up brand Imvely, I don’t know too much about the brand really but I’m really impressed with the packaging – the sleek black bullet tube is sturdy and well made and would rival anything from MAC. The shade is No 19 Red Rouge, it’s a bright crimson red – very vibrant. I’m a big believer that every girl should own a red lipstick, although I have to admit I don’t wear red very often...

KOREAN BEAUTY Thelavicos – Whitening Vitamin C Ampoule

KOREAN BEAUTY Thelavicos – Whitening Vitamin C Ampoule

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about Daeng Gi Meo Ri Oriental Special Shampoo. Whitening Vitamin C Ampoule* is a new product from Korean brand Thelavicos. The products come packaged in the silver box pictured above, it really looks luxurious and special. The box contains 4 small bottles or ampoules – ‘ampoule’ is described in the dictionary as ‘a small sealed glass capsule containing a liquid’. Inside each ampoule is a clear gel, and suspended above it is a chamber of tiny orange beads – these are Vitamin C powder. You can see the contents a bit...

KOREAN BEAUTY Isiloe Premium – Absolute Whitening Effect

KOREAN BEAUTY Isiloe Premium – Absolute Whitening Effect

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream from Nature Republic. Today I am reviewing Isiloe Premium Absolute Whitening Effect system, a system of three skincare products that promise to whiten and brighten the skin. I’ve said before in my Korean skincare reviews that ‘whitening’ the skin is a very Asian thing, over here in the UK everyone wants more tanned skin – not whiter skin! But I think that ‘whitening’ is possibly the wrong term for a lot of these products and could put people off over here – they don’t necessarily fade the...

You may have already seen some of my previous Korean beauty reviews, such as this post about Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream that I published last week. Today I’m reviewing a duo of skincare products from BRTC – this is a premium Korean skincare brand that I’d not heard of before receiving these products. Both packaged in purple boxes the products are from BRTC’s Jasmine Moist System collection. Jasmine Waterful Sleeping Pack* – this is an overnight face mask that you apply before bed then wash off in the morning. Overnight masks are a relatively new phenomenon here in the UK but over in Asia they’re a...

KOREAN BEAUTY Daeng Gi Meo Ri – Oriental Special Shampoo

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. Today I am reviewing another haircare product from Korean beauty brand Daeng Gi Meo Ri, a couple of months ago I reviewed their Ja Dam Hwa Scalp & Hair Cleansing Treatment. Daeng Gi Meo Ri specialise in herbal shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments and this is their Oriental Special Shampoo* gift pack. The box is really large and contains two bottles of the shampoo – a large 500ml pump bottle and a smaller travel sized 145ml bottle. I think this would make a really nice gift, given that it comes gift boxed. The shampoo itself is quite thick and brown. All of the ingredients and directions on the back of...
