Korean Makeup and Skincare Goodies! ♡


Recently, my friends have been raving non-stop about Korean makeup and skincare products and although I am not usually a huge Korean beauty fan, I decided that I have to try out some products myself since everyone seem to be loving them! ♡


The first thing that I picked up was the IOPE Air Cushion XP with SPF 50+/PA+++. For those of you out there who have never came across a BB Cushion/ Air Cushion before, it is basically a BB cream in a compact or 'cushion' form, where the BB cream is soaked in the compact sponge. I originally went in the Korean beauty store wanting to get the Innisfree BB Cushion that my friend recommended but it was sadly out of stock. I decided to get the IOPE Air Cushion instead because I have also heard really good things about it before and when I got home and did a little more research on this product, I found out that the IOPE Air cushion is actually the first BB/ Air cushion that was ever created in Korea! ♡ 


There are 2 finishes for this product to choose from - the N (natural) finish and the the C (coverage) finish. I decided to pick this product up in C21, which I believe is the lightest shade available and is meant to provide coverage for imperfections on your face. ♡ 


This product also comes with a refill, meaning that you actually get 2 15g compacts when you are purchasing this product! When you have finished the first compact, you can simply pop it out and pop the refill in. ♡ I feel that the refill does justify the price of this product a little bit as IOPE is a high-end Korean cosmetic brand and this compact is not the cheapest option you can get.


The next product I picked up was the First Aid Anti-hangover Soothing Mask from Belif. The reason why I was attracted to this particular skincare brand was that it uses herbal ingredients in all of its products and is mineral oil free and synthetic fragrance/ dyes free as well. 


This First Aid Anti-hangover Soothing Mask contains chamomile extract and is meant to provide a calming effect for your skin after a night out/ a long day. This product also smells really good and fresh in a non-artificial way and can be used by those with sensitive skin. 

I was given some Skinfood samples by the store after my purchases and I will be trying them out as well! 

I purchased these products in a Korean beauty store in Hong Kong called KC Beauty but you can also get the IOPE Air Cushion in Sasa and I believe the Belif skincare products are also available in Lane Crawford. ♡ If you are not from Hong Kong or other Asian countries, these products should also be available online on Amazon or other Korean/ Asian beauty websites! ♡
