Made in Korea ~ Cosmetics Brands

image1Today I have placed on a tray few products of Korea cosmetics that I use. As I have mentioned in my previous Blog, Korean cosmetics are very popular all over the world and if you like Skin treatments then you must look into their products.
I shall write about those products one by one and let you know how you can use them and let you know what I like the most.

1 SK II is actually not a Korean made product but very popular in Korea and all over the world. SK II is Japanese made cosmetics and made of Sake ingredients. I use Essence and a day cream that is mark under number 1. They have a very weird smell, but it will make you skim very soft, moisturized and it will help you to control the face color tone. essence is as well gives a mate glow to your skin, its good to apply it in the evening to help your skin have a breather.

2 is a Skin Food product, Its a skin cleansing lotion, in a mid thick consistency, you can used it to remove you BB and CC cream. What good in this product is that you can apply it all over your face and then without rinsing with water just wipe it off with the tissue and you are good to go. I do it right after i come from work and then before i go to sleep i do more deep cleansing.

3 is another Skin Food product  and it is Brown Sugar scrub mask. I usually apply it after i use the Cleansing lotion that under 2. You need to apply it on your face gently scrubbing it and then leave the mask on your face as it is for about 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off with the warm water. This mask is helping your face to remove the dead skin and when you are leaving it for 20 minutes your skin will get it a shot of glucose to keep your skin firm.

4 is a make up mist and its the product of Tony Molly, I usually use it after i apply mu make up before going out it gives mu skin a glow and help to keep my make up sit for a long.

5 Water Bank Mist Product of Laneige. I always carry it with me and one bottle is keep at work. It is a water bank to keep your skin enough moisturized through out the day.

6 Its my cute hand lotion that always with me in my bag. it has a great smell, everytime i wash my hands i need to apply cream or hand lotion to get reed of that dry feeling after the soap. This product always make my hand skin more calm and smell nice and I just love the packaging 🙂

7 Inisfree night pack. This niht pack is made of Green tea extracts. I have two ways of using. Before i go to sleep I just apply it on my face and go to sleep, this mask helps your face from swallowing, another way is to used it with the SOS oil that reach of vitamins E, this combination will give your face more glow more bright and more healthy face skin in the morning.

8 Lips and Eyes removal it is a Tony Molly product Blast line and it works just perfect with me, because I always use water proof mascara and eye liners.

9 BB cream by Laneige. Where never it comes to BB or Powder I always go for Laneige, because I like how it feels on My skin. It is very light, never sticky and always make my skin look natural. Plus i like that it always keeps my skin moisturized due to it consistency. I always apply it with my fingers never with the brush, like this it really nicely blends with my skin and at the same covers what it should cover and balance my face skin tone.

10 CC Cream by Tony Molly. It is my first CC cream, I used it for a more natural look when I want to look make up free but tat the same time to have a control of my skin tone. Works great with me with the touch of the Mist under number 4

Made in Korea ~ Clothing Fashion

As i have mentioned in my previous blog  10 things I love About Korea https://archashka.wordpress.com/2015/07/07/10-things-i-love-about-korea/ i am going to Write here more about clothing brands that caught my eyes.

Many of you are already aware about those brands by watching Dramas and following the style of your favorite Kpop Stars.

So i would like to start with my current obsession so it comes under number 1 and 2

1. pushButton

http://pushbutton-e-boutique.com/

This brand is premium and it doesn’t come cheap. last year after watching IT’S OK THAT’S LOVE Drama I have run through few shops in Appgujeong but could not find any and many shops still did not know this brand, but now it is available even online and even in Dubai. This Brand has own signature print that looks like leopard print but if you look on it closely it has a print of a puppy in it. Here are 2 Items i really want from this brand even though it is from their old collection

This two Shirt are over sized style and they coast aprox 400 USD each, so I went for a cheaper product of this brand and I got it on Gmarket.co.kr

Laneige-X-Pushbutton

Its a joke, I found a Blue shirt last year in one of the shops by they had only small size available and second was not available in the shop at all. So I am no again putting some savings on first priority , getting ready for my next trip to Korea.

2. Push 2nd Button

It is a sub label of the first one but comes with the more casual swag plus street fashion concept. And it is less expensive. I was eying the sweatshirts even tried to make order on line but had no luck and till now don’t have it.
