Packing is going on in full swing here in Bangalore. We leave for Korea sometime this month so we are going to see our families. It’s so funny we came back exactly 10 days ago from Korea with no plans of visibility of going back. I was disappointed while coming back because we had traveled on a promise of a long-term stay probably a year and were sent back after just four and half months. But I am grateful for a chance to meet our families after 6 months. So in my free time, which is hard to find, I built a cosmetics wishlist for shopping in Korea of the things I want to buy this time.
This wishlist is purely based on the online reviews I have read till now of the korean cosmetics. I will check out the individual Korean beauty brands and select items when I see them but as of now these are things I think I might like and are on my must-haves from Korean beauty brands:
1. Skin79 Beblesh balm
2. Tony Moly egg day and night soaps
3. SKII night treatment essence
4. Hera lipsticks
5. Holika Holika jewel eyeliner
6. The Face Shop face masks
7. Etude House Baking Powder Cleansing Foam
8. Nature Republic apple dome blusher
9. Skinfood Carrot cleansing oil
10. It’s Skin sunscreens
11. Innisfree Volcanic clay mask
These are not necessarily the bestsellers from these brands but I believe that these will be something that I would end up buying. Till now I have only bought Nature Republic nail paints, a couple of sheet masks from The Face Shop, Etude House BB cream and Skin Food Hair Mask + free samples.
I had carried far too many Oriflame and other Ayurvedic beauty products (from Art of Living) last time to have time to try new ones. I was really stupid last time but this time I am packing very light and plan to buy a lot of cosmetics. I am sure you will be seeing a lot of shopping hauls in the future, haha!
What are your thoughts about Korean cosmetics? Which products are on your cosmetics wishlist?
