Korean Beauty Products - Are they worth it?

Firstly I want to thank you all for the amazing comments you left on my previous dramatic post, you guys are the best, and if anything, I have no regrets thanks to you! Sending lots of hugs and kissies! #nohomo

Secondly, this is all and all a fashion, slash, low budget, slash, no lifer blog, so let's set aside my drama and focus on the important stuff - Korean beauty products! Yes, this is my new thing now! Let us pretend that it is better than the time I got obsessed with the guy from River Monsters...

*note, this is not a sponsored post*

I haven't read much into Korean beauty products, but I do know they are famous for their quality as well as packaging, so I decided to splurge like the money-less hobo I am and spend some good amount of cash on exactly three things from Kibela. The store has a bunch of amazing products, I highly recommend for gals who want their face cream to be in a panda container. KAWAIIIII! <3
The prices are okayish, I suppose, especially considering the quality and I've got my eye on a few other goodies from there, so stay tuned for more action of my obsession.

From left to right, we have a favorite of mine the Tonny Molly Pocket Bunny face mist. The face mist is supposed to leave the skin moist (that's what she said) and supple with a dewy finish. The bottle consists of a cocktail of fruit extracts and the scent is of a saturated sugary raspberry.
Upon application it leaves my face looking shinier and the skin feels soft and at ease.
I bet this will come in handy during the hot summer days, bearing in mind we do not have an air conditioner, I be spraying this like there's no tomorrow!
The Bunny mist is also enriched with aloe vera, so it should be perfect for sensitive and irritated skin as well. My skin is a mixture of dryness on some parts and oiliness on others and upon spraying this on the face, you feel a cool breeze and the complextion is tangibly more soft and pretty. 

The second product I bought is the Pure Eco Bamboo gel which consist of 99% Damyang Bamboo sap, which has a mouthful of minerals and amino acids which are supposed to soothe the skin on the body and face.

The gel has a very subtle scent of cucumber freshness and the moment you apply it the skin absorbs it like a sponge, leaving it moisturized and glowing, without leaving any stains.

I haven't yet tried it on the face, but I've been applying it daily on the body and I prefer it among other body lotions, because it's more gentle and has a nice glossy finish. Also it doesn't take forever to absorb!

The third and last product I splurged on, was Tigi's Bed Head Blow Out Golden Illuminating shine cream. Despite this looking like a dildo, TIGI are a brand very popular among modern hairdressers and their products are famous for high quality and giving your hair a structured style with a slight fragrance and shine. I have yet to see the shine though, but I think this is because of my hair being extremely worn out from all the dyeing.

The cream leaves the hair smelling of unicorns and Hugh Jackmans, and I experimented on how long would the scent last by cooking in a closed window. The verdict? It fucking lasts! I am thrilled!
It does not only leave the hair smelling of freshly baked cookies, but it is also a perfect product for styling and removing frizzy hair. I usually apply it after showering, but in the mornings as well, when my hair is flying everywhere, definitely recommend for all types of hair!

All and all I am happy with my purchases and I am willing to convert my religion towards all Korean products. What do you guys think? Are you a fan of Korean beauty products?


  1. I haven't tried any Korean cosmetic products but I heard they are pretty amazing so I will probably try them out some day. I love that their cosmetic industry is more about skin care, often relying on natural products (or that is the impression I got) to create a nice natural effect on the skin.

    It seems you picked up 3 great products. The mist sounds lovely and so does that bamboo gel.

    I would love to try that hair product cream. You're right about the packaging though:).

  2. Oh my, your dog! So cute!
    And I've never tried Korean cosmetics but I'm thinking about trying it :)

  3. I personally prefer my dildos to be purple and ooze yellow goo. Must go and get me some Korean stuff. Or...maybe not. I'll leave that for you. xo

  4. How cute is you and your doge in that gif. It's my favorite GIF from you because it looks so comfy and homely. I love Korean beauty products because they are simple and amazing in an unexpected way and the price can be within budget. I don't have doughs to throw around and my skin is apparently wonderful by itself without tons of things. It is pretty stubborn and will throw a fit if I put unnecessary things. Love your photos Keit, they are always soooo kawaii in your edgy way! :D xoxo


I appreciate every comment on the bloggy! It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside!
