On Trend: Korean Beauty | Birchbox

I’m all about discovering new KBeauty products. Since I watch a lot of Kdrama’s I often find myself having ‘skin envy’ and this year I’m working towards having the radiant, luminous skin I’ve always wanted. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I found out Birchbox was offering a guest box curated by Charlotte Cho who is a co-founder of Soko Glam.

The goodies...
The goodies…

Now for a run down on what’s in the box…

Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb

I’ve already given this product by RE:P a try. While the smell is a bit different, the gentle exfoliation was really nice. So many of the products to exfoliate your skin can be so harsh it feels like it’s going to take layer upon layer of your skin off. Not so with this product. Looking to reduce redness and cleanse your pores? Try this one out!

I’ve used products by IPKN before, so I couldn’t be more excited to try out this primer that can be worn alone or under foundation to give your skin a beautiful glow. Luminous skin? Yes, please!

Delight Tony Tint - Red

While I usually stick to nudes, mauves and rosy pinks, I plan on going bold with this lip color from TonyMoly. Per Charlotte, to use this product best you should dab the stain in the center of the lips for a pretty color boost.

When it comes to KBeauty Masks are where it’s at. I’ve tried one of the masks by Dr. Jart, and I cannot wait to have the time to tryout this Cucumber Mask from Manefit.

Kimchi isn’t the only fermented item enjoyed in the Korean Culture. This Essence is made with fermented lotus flower to help your skin retain it’s moisture and leave it beautiful dewy.
