My Introduction to Korean Skincare

Korean Skincare

In the last year or so, I have been hearing this buzz about Korean Skincare, about how amazing it is and how the rest of the world  really needs to take notes. I have also noticed that there are many more bloggers and YouTubers making content on the subject. Some just trying out certain products and others dedicating themselves to a new beauty routine consisting only of these Korean products. With my 30's approaching a lot faster than I'd like to admit, I have gotten VERY serious about my skin in these last few years. And by serious I mean I am willing to try anything that claims it could turn back the hands of time when it comes to my skin. So of course I had to try out some of this Korean skin care stuff everyone is raving about. 
In researching what products to get and where to get them from, I came across a website called Althea. It is a Korean beauty website that ships directly from Korea and has literally EVERYTHING. The prices range from $1 sheet mask to $60 face creams, depending on what you're into. The shipping took about two weeks and your package arrives in the cutest pink box. I have ordered from this site twice with no problems and plan on reordering and trying out other products! Here's what I've purchased so far: (as shown in the picture above, starting clockwise...)

Ruby & Bulgarian Rose Eye Patch: According to the website this product contains ruby powder and Bulgarian rose which keep the skin under the eyes youthful and glowy while also providing high levels of moisture. Some of the reviews said that it helps with puffy eyes so I had to give it a try. I  have used this product a handful of times and haven't really noticed a difference as far as the puffiness goes.

Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack: I loooooove this stuff! It has really made a difference in my skin and I will definitely be repurchasing. On the website it claims to moisturize, brighten, tighten pores, firm skin and replenish it. It does all of that! It has a bit of a weird consistency but you will get over it after a few uses.

Petitfee Gold & EGF Eye and Spot Patch: This under eye patch claims to have gold as a real ingredient as well as aloe, ginseng and green tea. I will say I like these patches better than the rose eye patch and I do see a noticeable difference after 10-15 mins of wearing them. It also comes with little spot patches in addition to the eye patches which are great!
Laneige lip Sleeping Mask: This lip mask claims to dissolve dead skin cells while you sleep. I will say that it is well worth the money. It moisturizes, smells good and leaves your lips feeling so soft after use. 

Feel free to click on any of the links and try out some of these products. I will say when doing your own research pay attention to the ingredients and instructions listed on the site because some of the products will come with only Korean writing on them. As I order and try out more products I will be sure to let you guys know and please comment below and let me know what skin care products work for you!
