Here are my current Korean beauty Spring favourites! For Spring I like to focus on keeping my skin well moisturised and oil free. I usually start to go for lighter coverage makeup as the days get hotter and go from heavy smokey winter eyes to classic winged liner and nude lips, and these products cover all that!

Everyone is so obsessed with Korean Beauty products! And I can easily see why! It’s not that they are new on the scene, in fact Korean beauty brands have been creating break through products and starting trends for years. However, products which were originally created for Asian markets are now more accessible and in huge demand all over the world. I’ve been dabbling myself in Korean beauty products and trends for a little while now after seeing them pop up online, discovering a few great K-beauty online stores and also shopping up a storm during my Asia holidays. So, if you aren’t quite sure what all the hype is about I’m about to fill you in faster than you can fill up a shopping cart of Tony Moly. Continue reading
I’m having makeup cravings. There’s really no rhyme or reason, and I didn’t just win the lottery either. I just want all the makeup. Two nights this week I have sat on the couch filling up online shopping carts and then having a little laugh to myself when either I see the total cost in USD, or I see the shipping price to get the goods to NZ.

The Baby Silky Foot One Shot Peeling by Holika Holika (a popular Korean beauty brand) is described as a “seven day miracle”. The idea is that this product will help remove all the dead skin from your feet and leave baby silky feet behind. I love Korean beauty products and this is so out of the box compared to other treatments I’ve seen for removing dead skin that I had to give it a try!
Once you start buying make up and beauty products online, you realise how insanely expensive products can be in stores here in NZ – the price difference can be heartbreaking. Now it is a hugely rare occasion for me to actually purchase a product in store. Of course there are pro’s and con’s to online shopping – con: online shop could just be a creepy man in his basement collecting money from unsuspecting beauty lovers, you have to wait for your package to arrive – BUT I really think that 99% of the time buying online totally pays off! So if you come armed with a debit card, credit card or PayPal account, are sitting at your computer ready to go and have a little patience to wait for the shipping THEN READ ON MY SHOPPING FRIEND and have a look at my top online beauty shops!

Ever since the outburst of BB creams into the western world I have kept my eye on Korean beauty products and brands, and my love for them has grown bigger and bigger. It seems that Asian beauty brands, especially in Korea, are always on the cusp of new breakthrough ingredients and they also have the most cutest packaging I’ve ever seen! Continue reading
