A K Beauty haul from Seoul Apothecary

A K Beauty haul from Seoul Apothecary

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 LiquidIt’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 AmpouleThat’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 MistIt’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.

  • You got a brilliant selection here, Nida! I am planning to explore Shiseido this year mainly because of my employee discount but I plan to make 2017 a skincare year so I can grow old as ‘gracefully’ as I could.

  • My favourite KBeauty products are definitely sheet masks! My absolute favourite at the moment is the Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Mask, however some other good ones are TonyMoly I’m Real Tea Tree and Benton Snail Bee Mask. I’ve wanted to try that Innisfree mask for a while – sounds perfect for my oily, acne-prone skin!


    • Thanks so much for the recommendations babe! I’m new to Kbeauty so I need all the recommendations I can get lol!

  • I must admit I adore Korean sheet masks too, even from Western brands as long as they are made in Korea. They’re really amazing! This haul makes me want to travel to Korea so badly, I bet they have so many unique products in Asia!


    • Girl yes! I bet Asia has some amazing skincare products. I would love to go there too.
