Korean Beauty In UK – Superdrug Finds

Hello guys ^^ ~!

Today I’m posting the first ever post in my new series “Korean Beauty in the UK! ๐Ÿ˜€

Korean beauty is getting more and more popular in Europe, I’ve seen it everywhere in the drugstores in Poland (my holidays ^^ ) and I decided to search for it in UK too!

Normally I buy my things either from yesstyle.com or one store I will be writing about in the future ^^

Jac's Beauty Blog

I shop in Superdrug quite often, it’s literally next to my workplace lol

However, if you want me to be perfectly honest, I’ve never seen any Kbeauty stuff there! Maybe it’s because my local Superdrug is not that big but still…

Just a few days ago I came up with the idea of creating this mini-series of Kbeauty finds in the UK and started browsing different websites and thinking about the other places I go to!

Brands and products

On Superdrug’s website, we can find a few Korean brands, not too many though. Half of them are actually Korean-inspired but made in Europe or America. Same with the variety, there’re mostly sheet masks available and there’s no further info on the website if they’re going to increase the brand and product range.

JiinJu

A brand I’ve honestly never heard about it. Checking all the packagings only showed me that this is the British brand with the head office in London. This brand doesn’t seem to have a websiteย so I can’t give you any more info about it.

Prices range from 2,99GBP for sheet masks to 12GBP for a gift set.

Soo’Ae

A brand made in New York. On their websiteย (which is also their online store) you can find quite a lot of products that are not available in Superdrug at the moment. Their cosmetics are not tested on animals and they have great reviews too! ^^

On Superdrug’s website prices range from 2,99GBP to 3,99GBP and all they offer are face masks.

SNP

SNP is a Korean brand mostly known for their sheet masks and eye patches. On Superdrug’s website there’s sadly only a small variety of their sheet masks :c

Prices range from 2,99GBP to 4,99GBP for a mask.

Dewytree

Another good Korean brand that sells sheet masks (I am totally sheet mask obsessed, lol :”D )! Again, not a big range is being sold on Superdrug’s.

Prices range from 4,99GBP to 5,99GBP.

Scinic

This is definitely one of my fav Korean brands! It’s really affordable and their cleansing oil is absolutely FAB! On Superdrug’s website, we’ve got some sheet masks and just a couple of other products but I guess that should be enough for everyone to discover the brand.

Prices range from 5,99GBP to 12,99GBP.

K-Beauty: July 2018 Empties!

Hello my Lovelies!

Today I’ve prepared some nice and easy post for you guys! I haven’t done anything like that in ages to be completely honest!

Don’t forget to tell me if you like this kind of posts ^^ ~

 

K-Beauty: July 2018 Empties!

1.ย SCINICย –ย Vita Ade Cleansing Oil

The BEST cleansing oil I’ve used so far to be honest! It was my holy grail last year and I swear by it! It’s very delicate for the skin but in the same time very harsh on makeup, so even using it to remove my eye makeup wasn’t causing any kind of iritations! I love it’s citrusy smell and the fact it’s so affordable (online ๐Ÿ˜€ ). Atm I’m testing more cleansing oils but this one is my NO.1 !!!

Rating: 10/10

2.ย TONYMOLYย –ย Pocket Bunny Mist (moist)

Very nice mist, I have to admit, plus this super cute packaging!!! I have to tell you one thing about me using face mists: I don’t use them on the face lol! I know, I know.. So how do I use it? It’s simple, I just spray them on my beauty blender instead of using tap water ^^ this mist made the application process so easy and smooth, I love it! The only downside in my oppinion? The price is very often around 10GBP so if you use it as a regular face mist it won’t last you long (60ml :c ).

Rating: 9/10

3. WELCOS – Grape Seed Deep Cleansing Foam

This was a tricky one. I wasn’t very satisfied with this cleanser, it just didn’t do much. And it was a bit iritating on my spots too :c It was also suppossed to have some anti-aging properties but I don’t know, didn’t notice any difference. Plus, I wouldn’t say it’s a foam, it’s actually a CREAM. I know the price was cheap (3.99GBP if I remember well..) but I think I’d rather invest a tiny bit more and get myself a better one.

4. TONYMOLY – The Fresh Phytoncide Pore Gel Cream

I loved using this one! Extremely refreshing scent, super light weight and affordable! I don’t know about this “pore” thing tbh, because I never EVER see any difference with that so I’m not going to debate about it lol. Apart from that, ideal for oily/combo skin, makes your skin look and feel really smooth, overall it’s a great gel cream for everyday use! Also pretty affordable ^^

5. SKIN WATCHERS – Pore Control Essence

Another disappointing one. First of all: TINY BOTTLE! 30ml!!! It just didn’t work for me at all, didn’t do completely ANYTHING to my skin. Didn’t make it better (but at least didn’t make it worse either…) but I think it was just a waste of money :c would not recommend…

6. PETITFEE – Gold EGF Eye & Spot Patch

Quite weird product which I don’t completely understand.. I love under eye patches,ย  really adore them! However with this one… hmmm… weird shape,that’s one thing. I love this typical tear-shaped ones, this one I could never make sit properly under my eyes and not slide x_X uhhh! Two, I still have no bloody idea what’s that “spot patch” suppose to mean. It didn’t help with any spots, so what’s the deal with it? Or maybe it’s a spot on your face where you need some extra hydration or something? Tried it, didn’t work! Didn’t really work underneath my eyes either.

Rating: 2/10

7. ETUDE HOUSE – Wonder Pore Essence

Really cute essence, very nice for oily/combo skin. The consistency was a bit gel’ish but it felt nice and light-weight on the skin. Didn’t cause any iritation, just a nice basic product.

Rating: 6/10
