Best Korean Products You've Tried
« on: April 09, 2018, 10:45:26 am »
Hi Ladies,

The Korean Invasion is stronger than ever, especially in terms of beauty!

With the number of K-products out there, what are the best ones you have tried?

Some articles will be shared in an article.

Thanks for sharing!

^i liked CosRx Snail Mucin Essence too, just has no room in my current skin care routine

I will also add CosRx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid for my specific needs. These two are my favorite CosRx and K-beauty products in general. Just have no room for them in my current routine.

Klairs Supple Preparation Toner and Vitamin E Mask are so good.
I don't need easy. I just need possible.

Current Faves:
Heimish All Clean Balm
Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
Klairs Supple Prep Toner
Cosrx Snail Mucin Essence
Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream
Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask
Innisfree Volcanic Clay Mask - best mask to reduce the appearance of visible pores + brighter skin!!


SK-ii deserves a special mention lol I got a 10ml sample and with less than a week of use my skin was brighter and glowing.  But because it is so friggin expensive, I ordered other stuff (Acwell toner and Neogen Essence) hoping I could get the same result. Will update in a few weeks!


Just thought I'd include 'highly raved' products I have tried but did not work for me:
Son & Park Beauty Water - i get little bumps when using this. Too many plant extract and essential oils I think that my sensitive skin doesn't seem to like.

Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner - i am not sure if the silicone in this one is making me break out. Either way, did not work for me.

TFS The Therapy First Serum - got little bumps with this one as well.

Benton Fermentation Eye Cream - the ingredients are wow but the result is disappointing.  My fine lines under eyes seem to be more visible after using this for a month, ugh.  The tube is huge (30g) and a little goes a long way - this will probably last you a year or so lol.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream - for some reason, I get some sort of hot flushes when using this one! Like my face would feel hot and sweat like there's no tomorrow! Stopped using this obvs, feels greasy too and not moisturizing enough.

I do not have a lot of k beauty products, I'm loving Laneige water sleeping mask and Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore clay mask, I will repurchase them.
 Thinking twice pa on Son & Park beauty water,  i love the feeling on my skin but I'm curious with other toners din.

Iope Bio retinol cream - (sample size) I?ve been stressed lately kasi ang dull ng face ko. Yung oily sya pero dry looking walang glow at all. Staple sa routine ko yung pixi glow tonic pero dry patches lang nabibigay saken. So last night ginamit ko yung pixi glow then after ilang minutes nilagyan ko nitong iope bio retinol. At first oily sya and medyo tacky sa feel. Pero after a while nawala na yug lagkit. Pag gising ko kanina bes ang glow ng skin hydrated to the max. And the best part? Nasa office ako ngayon and i can?t stop looking at my face hahaha glowing na parang naka highlighter. Namiss ko yung ganitong feels.

So far, ang mga na-try ko na made in Korea na mga sheet masks nila ay super duper OK.  So love it kasi hindi ako nagbre-break out.

I LOOOOVEEEEE Korean Skincare but if I really had to choose the stellar ones it would be:

CosRX All In One Snail Cream
Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Borabit Ampoule (dupe for SK-II for me)
Dr. Jart Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment - I use this, fill in my brows, light blush on my cheeks and I'm out the door!
April Skin Magic Stone - got rid of my backne and acne!
Son & Park Beauty Gel - I use it as my daytime moisturizer
J. One Jelly Pack - handsdown best primer I've ever used!

Yung SK-II ano po ba yan? Is it really good? I mean, for it to be your standard dun sa substitute mong Missha?

My Korean HG items now are:

Cosrx Snail Mucin Essence
Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Cleanser
Cosrx Oil Free Moisturizer with Birch Sap
Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Pore Cover BB Cream (discontinued)

Will not repurchase:

Cosrx Salicylic Acid Daily Cleanser is ok, but I have The Ordinary Salicylic Acid Solution na, so over kill nako sa SA. Too light to have an impact on my skin, sayang pera lang.

Cosrx AHA/BHA Toner I still don't know what it does haha, PH balancing daw so sige na nga. 

M Magic Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ - andaming oil sa ingredients! Moisturizing pero lakas maka oily.

----------------------------
I ordered Dear Klair's Supple Preparation Toner, I hope my skin likes it, I plan to use it sa morning.

Sisses, I'm going to try Dear Klair's Vit C serum (thanks sis Rory for telling me about this). I love my Drunk Elephant but i'm always up for trying new products anyway, especially if it means financial savings! I think that now that i've reaped positive results from Drunk Elephant, I can used Dear Klair's to maintain it.. they both use pure ascorbic acid so that's good.

Also, planning to add CosRx Snail Mucin Essence to my routine again. It's been 2 years since i last used this but i used to love it. Any recommendations how to use it, or where in your routines do you guys use this?

^Hi Sis lalee888, wow glad to hear you're finally doing it, I just received my Dear Klair's Toner, so far I'm loving it, and I've also decided to give their Vitamin C a try real soon. Medyo hinga hinga lang ako since I'm still working my way through my The Ordinary products. Update mo kami sa result!  :)

I use my Cosrx Snail Mucin Essence at night, after my acids, before my moisturizer. Does that mean you will be ditching your SK II na?  :)

^Sis Rory! Haha no way -- would never give up my SK II that's like my Holy Grail... i sometimes get lazy and skip some products in my routine, but i never ever skip on my SK II. I think i will just add the Snail Mucin essence and use it as a carrier. I might mix the Hyaluronic Acid with it and use it as carrier, will use it after SK II. I hope this add-on works! I don't know why na-miss ko sya eh haha

I will try the Dear Klair's Ascorbic Acid once i've used up my DE and will def keep you posted if i was able to retain the brightness i achieved from DE. : )

Hoarder ako kaya minsan not sure na which is working or not..MUZ snail + collagen sa mercury drug is great but pricey for a small tube. Lakas makablooming the next day.

^ same, ayoko na mag hoard! or ayoko na sabay sabay gamitin kasi d ko alam kung alin ang effective  :o

For me, the best Korean products that I've tried is Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence. Dupe daw ng SK-II. I've never tried SK-II though, Missha lang, so I can't attest if it's true

Cosrx Bha blackhead power liquid- brightens my skin without irritating it. My skin is oily and sensitive but I can use this product everyday without any negative reaction at all!

Leejiham tea tree essence- It doesn?t clog my pores and it hydrates my skin really well.
