Anyone who has dipped their toes in the tantalising lagoon of K-beauty will know it offers a treasure chest of veritable skincare wealth. From sheet masks to snail serum, when it comes to innovative beauty, the Koreans are ahead of the game. Most of my favourite reviews are of K-beauty items – seriously they never fail to surprise and delight me! Read on to discover my current favourite K-beauty products that are massively discounted right now!
1.Purito Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF 50+ PA++++ £10.53, 60ml (Usually £26.32), www.yesstyle.com
Should you have sensitive skin, this water-based sunscreen is a must-have. The vegan-friendly formula contains Centella Asiatica, renowned for its incredible wound healing properties. The ingredient provides exceptional anti-inflammatory and skin-strengthening benefits.
Also combining diethylamino hydroxy benzoyl and Ethylhexyl triazone means that UVA rays are thwarted and UVA/UVB rays are further absorbed. Premature aging and environmentally caused skin issues can do one!
2. NEOGEN Surmedic Azulene Soothing Peptide Ampoule, £13.09 (Was £32.72) 80ml, www.yesstyle.com
If you are looking for A-MAZING anti-aging skincare, look no further than this product. When applying ingredients, it’s a good idea to not use too many different components. This formula includes Centella Asiatica, making it a great ampoule to use with the above sunscreen.
When it comes to fighting the signs of aging, there are some star ingredients that are proven to work – and yes, this takes its place on centre stage for having many of those wonderous properties. Blue capsules combining a rich supply of azulene and 10 kinds of peptides ensure your complexion is getting the love it needs. Furthermore, highly beneficial ceramides offer incredible moisturising and rejuvenating qualities. I’m in heaven!
3.Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, £3.49 (Was £8.72), www.yesstyle.com
As we transition into the next season and reach for the central heating dial, we also need to consider our changing skin needs. Harsh winds followed by indoor heating can play havoc, resulting in cracked, dry and totally unkissable lips. Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask is the go-to treatment to keep your pout in perfect condition. Bursting with antioxidants and skin-loving ingredients, you will feel nourished and pampered for the rest of the year. Grab it while it’s on offer!
4.Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Gold Eye Patch, £12.72 (60pcs), www.yesstyle.com
I couldn’t talk about K-beauty without mentioning snail mucin! Combining this freakishly weird (yet bizarrely fascinating) ingredient to optimise regeneration, these 24k gold eye patches are worth the hype. Mizon has thought of and diverted away from every potential skincare disaster. The pads are formulated with bamboo, grapefruit and mushroom extracts to provide exceptional, brightening, moisturising and strengthening abilities. They have also enriched the pads with peptides for good measure! At £12.72, the pads are a steal. A great Christmas present to gift your beauty fanatic friend (better buy 2).
Happy Skincare days!
