Hello everyone, I hope you are doing very well!
Today I am back with another beauty post, all about Korean beauty! When I was in the US, I bought a couple of products and I was also lucky to be gifted some as well (those will be marked with an ” * “). So, I am going to share all these Korean newbies with you today!
I really hope you will enjoy this blog post, please let me know if you have tried any of the products or brands mentioned in the comments below😊

The first Korean beauty mask that I have recently tried out is a purifying sheet mask from Tony Moly, which is supposed to purify and brighten the skin. I have tried out a few of these sheet masks from Tony Moly because they have many different kinds.
I really liked this one, it didn’t have a strong scent and felt really cooling when I applied it on my face. I left it on for about 20 minutes, when I removed it I just massaged the excess into my skin and pat my skin dry with a towel. After that my skin wasn’t sticky nor red and it felt refreshed and clean!
The next mask I tried out was quite interesting! It is the A’Pieu Steam Eye Mask, which is supposed to relax tired eyes. I had never heard of this brand before buying this mask, not gonna lie, I bought it because I was genuinely super intrigued.
This mask heats up when it gets in contact with air. When I first put it on, it felt really soft against my skin. The heat gradually increases up to 40°C (104°F) which feels nice and warm, it’s not too hot and it doesn’t burn at all. At first, it did tingle my eyes a little bit, but then that sensation disappeared as I got used to the heat. The heat lasts about 20 minutes before gradually cooling down, but in my opinion you could easily keep it on for 30 minutes.
When I removed the mask, my eye area was a little red but it didn’t hurt or anything. I would recommend applying the mask in the afternoon or evening rather than in the morning because it did make me a little sleepy haha! Overall it was really relaxing.
The first Korean skincare item is the All Clean Balm by the brand Heimish. I was kindly sent this product along with the Bonair Premier Aloe Real Squeeze toner (which I’ll talk about next!) from a Korean beauty online shop based in Switzerland called Niasha.
I have used it a couple times and I am already obsessed! I use it to remove my makeup and I have to say, this is probably the best way I’ve removed my makeup. It’s a balm that becomes an oil formula when you massage it into your skin and then when it gets in contact with water it becomes a milk formula, which makes it super easy to rince off. It removes all my makeup, including mascara (I haven’t tried it with waterproof mascara yet). It feels super hydrating and gentle, perfect if you tend to have more sensitive skin like mine. It reminds me a lot of the Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm!
This next product is the Premier Aloe Real Squeeze toner with aloe juice in it (more than 75.16% !). It is a nourishing and smoothing primer, which helps to minimize the pores. I really love it, the bottle is made of glass which makes it feel more luxurious. I apply it with a cotton pad just after cleansing my face and before applying my moisturizing cream. My skin feels instantly hydrated and fresh, which I love! Can’t wait to use it more!
The last Korean beauty product is the Lip Sleeping Mask by LANEIGE. I picked this up at Sephora when I was in the US and I really love it! My lips tend to be very dry in winter and also if I get too much sun in summer. I had never tried out a lip mask before! This one smells like red berries and feels really rich on the lips. I leave it on overnight and wipe the remaining product in the morning. It really helps to get rid of dead skin and hydrate your lips, they feel super smooth when I wake up!
And there you go, these were my new Korean beauty discoveries! I really hope you guys enjoyed this post, please let me know if you have tried any of the brands/products mentioned, I’d love to know😊
I wish you a very nice day/night and I will talk to you in my next blog post!
All the love,
