Below is the video review I put together for those who prefer to watch my commentary. If you’d rather read the product breakdown, keep scrolling!
#BeginWithSkin Korean Beauty Starter Kit Review ($39 USD)
Now, when there’s a new beauty website I’m introduced to, I always look through the bestsellers first. I think it’s safe to say that most of us do a thorough skim of the reviews. I know I try to read at least 5-10 of the best and worst reviews. Once that general assessment is done, I take the plunge. Numerous beauty bloggers/vloggers have covered this site, so of course my curiosity was lit.
Now, I’m no health or beauty expert. Let’s be clear about that. However, I still think it can be useful to hear a peer’s perspective on a new product. Everything included instructions, which I’ve done my best to consistently follow two months into this new regiment.
Skin Food Black Sugar Cleansing Oil ($19.40 USD)
A pain-free way to get rid of the day’s makeup, sebum, etc. You want oily, grossness off? This will become your new best friend. I don’t use it super often, but when I do–I’m quite happy with the results.
It’s Skin Cleansing Foam Have an Orange ($5 USD)
While unable to pick between the four possible scents, I was quite happy with the one I received. It’s a gentle cleanser you can either immediately use after the cleansing oil, or to start off your skin care regiment for the day. It takes very little product to work up a big lather. Once you wash everything off, you skin gets a very soft texture.
Goodal Phytorain Murumuru Seed Hydra Serum ($34 USD)
This was only my second time trying a serum and definitely the first time I used it correctly. One to two pumps to cover the face and your skin just soaks it in. You know that feeling when you find a really good lotion? Take that result times about five and you have what a serum can do for you. I’ve since tried another serum, but this one is what I think I’ll stay with for now.
Tonymoly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist ($15 USD)
After having seen this in a number of dramas and reality shows, I couldn’t help but laugh. I stand by what I said in my video review–in no way whatsoever do you need this in a daily skin care routine. But if it’s dry outside, this is a fast solution. I’m quickly realizing that moisture seems to be one of the big parts of thorough skin care routines. And I mean consistent moisture throughout the day. Although it might be self-explanatory, spray it over your face and let it set for a few seconds.
Bonus Product: Meme Mask ($10 for 5-pack)
I was embarrassingly happy with the results of this mask. Hydrogel masks are similar to other face masks, outside of a few small things. This two-piece mask can stay on your face for 20-40 minutes. Without drying out when you take it off, you skin feels incredibly moist and smooth. I found myself patting my face every so often in surprise because it felt that different. Since these are sold by the box, I’m going to have to stock up well.
I don’t think there’s a question on if I liked this at all. I still have a few other Meme Box reviews, in fact. For $39, it’s a nice way to be introduced to the intricate routine that is South Korean skin care. I’m looking for other products from around the world because it’s so interesting to see what variety of options exist. Have something you swear by? Let me know!
