First, I have to say, I am going to stop buying all the expensive western beauty products. Since coming back from my Korea/Japan trip last year, I have been only using the products I’ve brought back and my skin is so much nicer, softer and younger looking. I think Asians are so big on skin and natural beauty that they’ve put in a lot of effort in the research. Regardless, I am a happy buyer and user of Asian products. Even though I am Chinese, I’ve just been introduced to all these Asian products. I’ve used them quite a few months so I can give you a really good thorough review. I am only reviewing 3 products today, but they are incredible.
1. This is the most amazing exfoliator you will ever use. It is super gentle on your skin and super light. It is water based so it isn’t greasy. The way to use this is wipe/wash your makeup off your face, then pat dry your face with towel, then put a quarter sized amount in your hand and start putting it all over your face and just gently rub, you don’t need to do it hard, just gently rub or wipe as if you are pushing hair off your face (yes that gentle) and you will see all the dead skins coming off immediately. It’s so gentle that you can use it almost everyday. The key here is not to wet your face. I learned this the hard way as I used half the bottle before I figured out to not wet my face before using this product. (What a waste I know!) If you go to Japan, you need to stock up on this, because buying it here is super expensive. But here you go click here to buy this product.
2. This is the coolest gel pack. It’s again water based and super light, but great for hydration and moisturize. My skin type is a combination, where like most people the T-zone area is oily and the rest normal/dry. This gel pack (sleeping mask) keeps my skin hydrated at night so I don’t feel the dry pull of the skin at night. When I wake up in the morning, I just wash my face with warm water and my skin come out super soft and bright (as in my skin looks more alive). I highly recommend to use this at least 3 times a week to sleep with. You can call it a sleep mask, but really it’s so light that you don’t even know it’s there. To purchase this please click here.
3. I really love this next one. This is another awesome exfoliator, however, the difference between this one and Cure is that it’s a little stronger. It’s in powder form. Just wet your face a little, and start the scrubbing. You will love it! To buy this product, please click here.
