Adding to the stash: Korean Beauty

korean cosmetic haul skin79 tonymoly holikaholika uk blogger

When your life is piles and piles of paper and post-it-notes and multicoloured ink and deadlines, getting parcels you forgot about in the post is a very welcome surprise. I wasn’t in dire need of anything this time, unlike my last Korean cosmetic haul, but I saw a some things that I thought were really cute and would like to try. So I hopped on over to roseroseshop‘s ebay store, rubyruby76, and well, here we are.

As per usual, the service was fab. Small delay in shipping – usually they arrive about 7 working days after order, but New Year post is always slow – but nothing that was making me question where things had got to. They’re a brilliant seller; good range of stock and accurate prices, so if you’re looking for somewhere to get your mitts on some of these, there ya go.

I haven’t had any sleeping masks before. Seen them around, not purchased. Rose water is brilliant for the skin, and it claims to rehydrate for long hours without dryness. Sounds fab. It also comes in a little ~glass~ pot with a plastic spatula so no fingers in the pot, please!

Now that my hair’s a more manageable length again, it’s time to nourish the living fk out of it. I’ve been super excited to try this since the line came out (there’s a sleeping hair mask too, it looks like mustard) – egg yolks and shea butter should hopefully help restore some of the dryness my hair is prone to. Plus this packaging is adorable.

Ooh look a bb cushion! I absolutely love the limited edition collaboration projects Korean brands do, and this artsy kitty cat collab called out to me. There are two compact designs in the collection, and I didn’t feel the burning need to get both, but I think this is the cuter option anyway. Even the little puff has a kitty’s face on it. Everything else is pretty standard – I get on really well with HolikaHolika base products, but haven’t tried any of their bb cushions, or the face2change range. Shall be interesting. 

I’ll be sure to do full reviews on these when I get to test them out fully! At the moment I’m all steam ahead for deadlines and urgh, exams. Ew. January, y u so ick? Though if you want to read my thoughts on graduating this summer, I wouldn’t mind. 

Anywho, how cute are these? Let me know what you think, and which one you’d be most interested to hear about first!

    I've been wanting to try the 'hair mayo' for forever and a day! Review on that one first please! I think my hair could really use it but I've been putting off purchasing as it was a little pricey. Chloe x | Snug Corner

    I'm just getting into Korean beauty. I bought some sheet masks and a peach face serum which is divine! I used cosmetic love online. You wait a bit longer but they are so affordable and free shipping! :DBex x

    I needed this post! Need some serious K-beauty inspo. Tempted to buy that mask purely for the bottle alone, it's the best thing I've ever seen! The sleeping hair mask sounds really interesting, definitely need to check that out. Kirstie | Behind The Scent (formerly Kimamely Beauty)
