To say I am obsessed with Korean cosmetics would be a vast understatement. Every month I spend a large amount of hard-earned cash on them and my fridge is stuck ceiling high with face creams, serums and essences. There’s no room for food but who cares! My skin is more important than my stomach!
Korean cosmetics are joy to the eye and pleasure to the skin. I know it might be silly to buy a product just because its packaging is sweet or funny. But can you honestly remain indifferent when you see something like this:
I’ve been using Korean lotions and potions for the last six years and I haven’t been disappointed so far. When the company promises something, it’s sure to deliver. And that’s why Korean cosmetics are so popular – they do really work!
Missha, Mizon, It’s Skin, Holika Holika, Etude House, Tony Moly, Nature Republic – these are just a few Korean brands in a vast ocean of beauty business. A growing demand for high quality products impel companies to improve their cosmetics’ compositions and look for new and natural ingredients. Snail slime, bee and viper venom, salmon eggs, donkey milk, bird’s nest, horse oil might sound exotic to most of Europeans but to Koreans it’s a daily bread.
Each company has got a wide range of products on the market, therefore it is next to impossible to decide what to buy in a short time. It usually takes me hours to plough through all the offers of my favourite on-line shops and choose a product I want to buy. Needless to say, I always end up with at least 3 items in a basket. But I never scrimp on face creams. After all, my face is my showcase! Thanks to Korean cosmetics I can lie about my age. I look 15 years younger than I really am, and that’s a huge achievement for a woman. 😉
