Moistfull Collagen Essence is from Etude House, with Krystal and Sulli of F(x) as models. It is one of Etude’s most popular products. Its main function is protecting moisture and elasticity of skin. So, It has elements from uniting extracts of baobab and collagen, for strengthening moisture and increasing elasticity. It isn’t recommended for oily skin. If they use it, they can look too oily. These day, one main pet-peeve about this product is its size. The bottle has become smaller, compared with the past. 

Etude House is a South Korean Cosmetic company, that has been endorsed by many K-pop and K-drama stars, including Lee Minho, Park Shin-Hye, and 2NE1. Etude means “study” in French. Their latest campaign features the rapper Beenzino and Krystal.

Do you know the woman in the picture? Yes, she is Yoona of SNSD. Innisfree, which Yoona model’s for , actually used to be just a normal brand before uniting with Amore Pacific, which has luxury brands in Korea like LANEIGE, and Sulwhasoo. After uniting with Amore Pacific, the quality improved a lot.

This product, Jeju Sparkling Mineral Essence, is Innisfree’s new product released a few weeks ago. The product’s case is a canister. because it  contains carbonated water. When you press a button at the top of it, the contents come out like bubbles. It smells sweet like soda pop, but it isn’t sticky. It is also not recommended for oily skin.

One missing thing in this product, is the control of its content. Because of its structure, it’s hard to control the amount of content you get when you push the button. If you push it a little bit too long, too much of the contents comes out.


3. BlanClouding White Moisture Cream

​ This product is a recently-released item in The Face Shop. The exact name of it is ‘BlanClouding White Moisture Cream’, so it has both functions for moisture and brightening. The way it feels is quite impressive. When I first tried it, it felt like a little bit solid. But when it touched my skin, it became watery. The scent is also nice. It is recommended for every type of skin. The BlanClouding White Moisture Cream was evaluated as the best moisture cream in The Face Shop.


4. Perfect Waterproof Sunblock SPF50+ PA+++

 This is one of the best sellers from Innisfree. Usually when I use sun block products, they are always slippery and feels stuffy. But for this item, there are nothing like that phenomenon! And, this is one of the great things about this product. Also, there aren’t any white cloudy phenomenon, and it combines function as make-up base. So, it’ll take care of blemishes on the skin, too.
Because of the sunflower oil, which is the main element in this product, there aren’t feelings like fulling. It lasts for a long time, so I think this is a pretty great product for using daily. Although rarely, there are some people who don’t like its scent.


5. It Radiant CC Cream SPF 30 PA++

Banila co, which is modeled by Song Ji Hyo who is famous for ‘Running Man’, was originally famous for CC cream. Since 2013, the company always gets the first prize for the CC Cream sectors in the beauty awards. It matches well with every type of skin. It keeps natural skin tone and corrects skin texture, so it makes people’s skin more bright. Also, it isn’t heavy and covers blemishes well! One of the great things about this product is, after using this item the skin looks like your natural skin. Taking it after Innisfree’s sunblock is okay, too. But, don’t use them as together too much!


6. Senka Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam

​Great for skin, as caring for your skin with great base products are important, because cleansing products are important, too! This product is one of my favorite products. Many people who use it say “I’ve seen people who don’t use it, but I’ve never seen people who use it just once.” So, it is really great! But in Korea, its price is almost twice or four times higher than in Japan, so many people stock it when they travel to Japan.
Its using method is unique, a little bit. You have to scrub with it. The amount used is enough as a joint of finger, and a bit of water. If you scrub more and more, it’ll be great as there’ll be lots of bubbles! Its particle is so small, so its stimulation is very low, and it can erase heavy make up easily! Before you use it, if you use cleansing oil first, the cleansing will be even more perfect.


7. Geomar Body Scrub


Korea has their own bath culture. But these day, some people have started looking for other ways for cleaning their body. Because, sometimes our traditional way hurts too much for people who have weak skin. Yeah, and this product will be the answer for that! Geomar’s body scrub is a combination of salt from the Dead Sea and different styles of oil.  Together, these have great synergy. After using the product, it makes you feel cool and sweet, because of the scent of the oil. For more great effect, and protecting your skin, you have to wet enough of it before starting to scrub. If you don’t wet enough, you can be hurt because of thick salt grain.
