Korea’s Best in Beauty

A lot of you guys have been asking me about Korean beauty products. It’s something I haven’t really covered before but I wanted to share with you some of my top picks. Amazon actually has a lot really great authentic Korean beauty products and since you’ve asked most about skin care, makeup and hair care, we’ll cover my top picks here:

1) Skin Care

skin-care

TONYMOLY I’m Real Mask Sheets: These masks are made of 100% natural pulp and each one is different. They come in a 5 pack, which I suggest so you can try different ones and see which ones you like best. The Lemon brightens, the Tea Tree is more soothing, Avocado is for moisture, and so on. It’s nice having variety to play around with.

detox-mask

LG Su:m 37 White Award Detox Mask: This serum mask has vitamin E, omega 6, omega 9. IT’s shipped from South Korea, so depending on where you are may take some time to get to you but it’s worth it.

 

Makeup

I think eyes are really important so both of my picks for makeup (not surprisingly) are for eyes…

pandas-dream

The TONYMOLY Pandas Dream So Cool Eye Stick is great for tired or puffy eyes. It’s cooling and moisturizing, helping to brighten the delicate skin around yours eyes.

 

eye-makeup

VDL Expert Color Eye Book 6.4 No.1: I love the colors on this. The Marsala is amazing and the mirror is nice and big.

Hair Care

atomy-herbal

Atomy Herbal Hair Conditioner: If you have damaged hair from coloring then this conditioner is amazing. It’s really moisturizing and enriching so even if you don’t color your hair it will make it shinier and healthier.

argan-oil

Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Hair Pack: Another deep moisturizer for hair that will bring out the shine. This has enriched argan oil, which is great for getting thicker healthier hair.

Korean Beauty Box Review – Memebox, Yesstyle Subscriptions US, UK, Canada + Coupon

Want to try out some Korean beauty products? A beauty box is a great place to start! There are several places you can get them online, but today we’ll be reviewing the 2 most popular ones: MEMEBox and Yesstyle.

MEMEBOX

MEMEBox is the leader in korean beauty boxes and has three main boxes. Two of them are for skin and one is for hair. Lets take a look at both. (Get the coupon here)

1) Mask and Study Box – $25

korean-beauty-box-mask-and

This box is designed for the diligent Korean student who spends a night in studying. But, if you’re going to be in and all alone, you might as well pamper your skin. Here’s what it includes:

box-contentsCream Mask Sheets: It comes with 3 of these by It’s Skin. They are a nutrition mask, a moisturizing mask, and a glow cream mask for radiant, dewey skin.

Skingel Masks: There are 3 Jeju skingel masks in Hanrabong, cactus, and green tea.

Moisturizer – Elensilia-INTRACELL moisturizer has escargot and hyaluronic acid and gives you deep moisturization. Great for dry skin.

Firming Gel – Also by Elensilia-INTRACELL made with escargot and placenta.

Revitalizing Gel – made from escargot and propolis.

Repairing Gel – for deeper noursishment, made from escargot and caviar

Bonvivant That Day Mask Pack – There’s three, one for blemish care, one is hydrating and ones is for brightening.

Stationary – Per it’s theme, it comes with some stationery! There’s a black notebook, a pink lego-style  pencil case, a memebox pen that looks like a pencil, and a notepad with a cute little kitty in a MEMEbox box.

Unboxing

I was thinking of doing an unboxing video, but Coffeatmyhouse already made one and I really like hers. So, I’m just going to put hers on here since she did such a great job.

Conclusion

They have a generous 101 day guarantee, but I’ve never returned anything and I doubt you will want to return it either. The stuff you get really is top-of-the-line, and you can check the reviews for yourself. I found a coupon code for you that will let you get 10% off your first beauty box. The code is: 101smiles.

 

YESSTYLE BOXES – Most around $20

There are 2 types of Korean beauty boxes at YestStyle.

  1. Korean Beauty Boxes
  2. Brand-Specific Korean Beauty Boxes

Korean Beauty Box

yesstyle-korean-beauty-boxThe Korean Beauty YesStyle Boxes are a little harder to talk about because they don’t send you the same thing every time. What they do is they randomly pick 10 things including: skin care, makeup, body care, hair care, etc. The brands include:

  • Skinfood
  • Innisfree
  • Laneige
  • Etude House
  • Tony Moly
  • Missha
  • Skin79
  • The Face Shop

But, despite the randomness, they are VERY well reviewed.

Brand-Specific Korean Beauty Box

If you want to get more specific and make sure they send you stuff from one particular brand, you can currently pick from Etude House or Laneige, and they will only send you stuff by that brand.

For both the Laneige beauty box and Etude House beauty box, they still send you random stuff, but they keep it specific to that brand. Again, you can expect to get products for skin care products.

Etude House Examples:

etude-house-beauty-box-1 etude-house-box-3 korean-beauty-box-by-etude-house-4 korean-etude-house-beauty-box-2

Laneige Box Examples:

asian-beauty-box-by-laneige laneige-beauty-box laneige-korean-beauty-box

By the way, you can buy any of these in the US, UK, or Canada because you purchase it online.

Coupon

Memebox Coupon

Hi all! A lot of people have been asking me about Memembox and the membox Coupon ever since my post Korean Beauty Box Subscriptions – Memebox Review.

This is it here:

101smiles

Copy the code and click here to go to Memebox to use it.

Memebox Has More than Beauty Boxes

I also wanted to add the Memebox does have more than beauty boxes. They also have Korean make up and beauty accessories that are really top quality like you would buy in Seoul. The 10% off coupon I listed above also applies to those items as well, not just Korean beauty boxes.

Joseon Beauty Cream

They have a lot of other Korean beauty products like the new Joseon Beauty Cream. It was featured on Woman’s Talk on their site. First of all the jar itself is really cute and Josean-Dynasty-Era-style. It’s the traditional jar style and the top is Korean paper handmade from mulberry tree. Don’t worry, though. Underneath the mulberry paper is a regular screw-on top to keep it fresh. By the way, if you like traditional Korean style, check out my post on where to buy your own tradition Korean hanbok online.

memebox-joseon-dynasty-cream

As you can see in the video, the cream itself is very thick and kind of sticky. You put it on at night before bed and you’ll wake up with your face feeling moist and hydrated.

This video is in Korean, but they have subtitles. (want to learn Korean?)

This video, however has no subtitles. It’s a show showcasing the cream. It’s called Korea Depart and it’s like a Home Shopping Network in Korea.

So, head over to Memebox and check out what they have in the Korean section. That have a lot of great products. Also, fair warning, if you happen to go to the site and the beauty box you want is available, go ahead and buy it ASAP. They sell out really fast as they are very popular. As of this writing, the Korean Study beauty box is sold out. So, if you happen to find it in stock, get it before they sell out again!

Etude House Korean Sunscreen

etude-houseAnother one of my favorite Korean brands for beauty is Etude House. They have a powerful SPF 50 suncreen that is not sticky and is 100% mineral based. (You generally don’t want to go higher than 50 SPF) It’s made of dwarf ground sedge extract and aloe vera.

Etude House is one of those brands that you see all over Seoul. Their spokesmodels are I.O.I., Sulli and Krystal from f(x) and who wouldn’t want to sport their style?

Coupon For Everything

So, that memebox coupon applies to everything in the store so go ahead and copy it and get 10% off whatever you want!

By the way, if for any reason that coupon doesn’t work leave a comment below and I will update it. The coupon has been working fine for a while now on Memebox and as I’m writing this I just checked it on the site and it still takes 10% off.

Korean BB Cream

Sulli’s BB Cream from Korea

BB Cream is a must for Kpop stars. As I’m sure you’ve seen, everyone from musicians to the hottest Korean actors use it to give them a natural look that blends in with their skin.

On top of that, BB cream also provides SPF protection and moisturizes. Most Korean makeup artists typically use it as a light foundation for both their female and male clients. There are some BB creams available in the US, by why not get the real deal? Below, you can buy real Korean BB Cream on Amazon for only $17!
