My New Favourite Packaging! Dr Lewinn’s, Code Glokolor


I’ve recently tried two products that have the most handy packaging I’ve ever used. I’m hoping this will be the next big thing, because:

1. It’s handy

2. It’s budget-friendly

It comes in very similar packaging, except that there are multiple holes (in a very cute star shape), and you press the lever in the front to get the product to emerge. (Interestingly, Code Glokolor comes from LG, which is better known for their electronics in Australia but in Korea they make everything.)

If you can’t remember, this post …

The most famous is probably the Shu Uemura range, which has kick started a whole new category of cleansing oils, which go on and melt make-up like oils, but wash off cleanly with …
