Because my skincare addiction continues on into 2017.
You know I said “hell yes” when Seoul Apothecary reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try some stuff from their online store. K beauty is all the rage at the moment, and I honestly haven’t tried that much. The two K beauty brands that I have tried are Belif and Pur~Lisse, which I’m a fan of, so I’m excited to try out some more and report back.
A Seoul Apothecary Haul
I picked up the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, which is supposed to purify, fight acne, soothe, and it’s antibacterial so it’s great for blemish prone skin. I also picked up the COSRx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid. It’s supposed to treat congested, acne prone skin, and exfoliate without leaving the skin irritated or dry.
I’d never heard of an ampoule before so I was really interested in that when I saw it on their website. Basically, it’s a super charged serum with a higher concentration of active ingredients. Keen on trying one of these out for myself, I chose the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule. That’s a long ass name so I have high expectations. It’s supposed to protect against early signs of aging since it contains ingredients like retinol and niacinamide. You know I get along with those ingredients swimmingly, and I just talked about them in my “skincare ingredients to start using in your twenties” post. I also opted to try the Tosowoong Propolis Sparkle Ampoule. It contains 80% propolis, a natural resin prized for its antibacterial and healing properties. Plus, it’s supposed to give your skin a glow. Of course I had to try this one because you know I’m all about the dew.
I love a good facial mist so I picked up the Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence Mist. It’s supposed to condition, soften, and hydrate your skin before serums and creams. You can also use it throughout the day as a skin refresher. What sold me on this were the ingredients. Saccharomyces ferment, a naturally derived enzyme from yeast that softens, brightens, and gives the skin a dew; licorice root, which reduces hyperpigmentation; niacinamide, a form of vitamin B that protects the skin against free radicals; camomile, which is anti-inflammatory, and inhibits the spread of acne causing bacteria.
