I’m having a relationship with Korea. Yes, it’s been sealed. Other than the fact that I’ve been seeing Korean hairstylists every chance I had in the past two years, my respect for Korean beauty products has turned to love and devotion. My beauty regimen had always been monotonous. My vanity kit can actually be narrowed down to just face powder which already contains sunscreen, concealer, blusher, brow powder, brown eyeshadow and warm pink/peachy pink lipsticks. Three Korean beauty products that I’d buy again and again are TonyMoly Timeless Ferment Snail BB Cream, Etude House Play 101 pencil in brown and Etude House My Lovely Cookie Blusher in #7 Rose Macaron. It’s not the manic kind of love, hahah, I’m not even close to cushion compacts.
I haven’t reviewed TonyMoly Timeless Ferment Snail BB Cream. It sounds freakish, but I got it because among the various brands and formulations I tested, it didn’t make me too white nor grayish. It comes only in one shade and self adjusts which is just perfect for my coloring. It has a high SPF of 45. It contains snail slime, touted to be regenerating, well, we all know how Koreans are so radical when it comes to beauty and skincare. It’s not too thick, but evens out and literally brightens my complexion. BB creams or blemish balms contain moisturizers, so expect some midday shine. On hectic days, I just dust a thin layer of my trusty Ben Nye Banana powder over it, smudge brown Etude Play 101 pencil and dab Rose Macaron on the apples of my cheeks. I’ve noticed a significant improvement after using this BB cream in terms of feel and appearance.
I tend to be a loyal consumer when the connection works.
