Korean Beauty

If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you will have noticed that I adore Korean Beauty. Referred to as K-Beauty, for me, there is just something that little bit different, something a little bit out there and definitely something that is ahead in technology and innovation than that of the beauty products that we use here in the UK.  Now you might have heard about the use of some wacky ingredients and there are rumours of 11 step regimes which Korean ladies complete every single day, in some cases twice a day, the one thing that stands out from all of this is Hydration - the most important focus.

This section of the blog will feature the K-Beauty brands that I use, have been introduced to, have come across, discovered and am intrigued by and they include:
