Skincare Regime Updated

Leave a comment

White bottles, and fancy font call to me, I swear.  I’m a sucker for skincare but you most probably already know that. Beauty Cult consumer is a phrase not to be used lightly when talking about my shopping habits. Which became even more apparent on my recent move to Seoul.

Long haul flights aren’t great period, and I sat nervously as the  young woman next to me  struggled to tied back her hair. And I fully judged her as she half-ass removed her makeup with a floor wipe. I wanted to help her, started to sift through my bag but concluded that anyone who uses a Dettol wipe on their face is beyond saving. Shameless me pulled out a bag full of travel sized products and started a 7 step  cleanse/moisturize routine….what can I say it was a 10 hour flight..and if the plane went down my skin would have smelt like roses.. rather than disinfectant.

Needless to say, having been living in the land of skincare (South Korea) for just over a month,  I’ve had to adjust my shopping habits. Famed for it’s harmless but effective ingredients, Kbeauty is a far cry from the pharmacies of the French. See my previous post on Kbeauty if you’re unsure what I am babbling about.

Some products like Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 are hard enough to find in London, let alone abroad. So whilst I am here I have had to change my stance. Note that the change in products isn’t down to anything but location and accessibility. This is an update of everything I used before and everything I use now. At some point I will post a more detailed update on how the Kbeauty products are working in comparison to my UK ones.

If you have tried any of these, let me know if they have worked for you?
