I am a big fan of Asian beauty products, which I suppose isn’t that surprising given that I’m Asian. Asian beauty products tend to be cute, suited to my colouring and great value. Here are my all-time faves – I’m always on the lookout for more products to try, so if you have any recs please let me know!
The Face Shop White Jewel Peeling Gel – Peeling gels are my favourite way to physically exfoliate (they’re physical exfoliants, not chemical!). This one is my favourite so far – it’s not too scrubby, but not too weak, so it gives a gentle, thorough exodus of the dry peelies.
Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash-Off – I bought this thanks to Kerry’s (Skin & Tonics) review. While I’m not a fan of the huge scrubbing particles (they feel like they’re just scratching my face without actually removing dead skin), this mask’s base leaves my skin beautifully soft and hydrated. It also smells like strawberry jam.
Tony Moly Peach Lip Balm – To be honest the lip balm is really just average in performance. But the packaging is so cute, and the scent is so deliciously fruity, that I use it to death anyway!
Biore Aqua Base Watery Essence Sunscreen (reviewed here) – My favourite sunscreen. It’s high SPF, non-greasy, and rubs in like a dream. There are rumours that it’ll be released in PA++++ (higher than UVAPF 16) soon – I hope the texture stays the same!
Skin79 Hot Pink Super Plus BB Cream – This is my go-to foundation product. It hides uneven texture really well, and applies nicely with brushes, fingers or sponges.
Etude House Proof 10 Eyeshadow Primer – This eyeshadow primer is really good – better than Urban Decay Primer Potion in my opinion. It isn’t amazing for chunky loose glitters, but for mattes and standard shimmers it lasts all day. Holy grail product!
The Face Shop Lovely me:ex Design My Eyebrow (Auto) in #1 Grey Brown – This shade is fantastic – almost every brown eyebrow pencil I’ve had in the past has been way too red to look natural on me. It’s also got a spoolie on the end for rubbing out mistakes and blending in stray marks, which is sadly a must for me.
I’m actually in the middle of trying out a stupid number of Asian beauty samples – I’m hoping to find a few new favourites in there. There’ll be a mega-review post soon!
