[unpaid/sample] Remember when everyone was mad for K-Beauty? All the stores had K-Beauty sections popping up (even TK Maxx) but because they didn’t quite know how to categorize serious skin care in quirky packaging, the trend came and went quite quickly. Selfridges had a huge section that is now reduced to a handful of good sellers – all credit for dipping their toes but the ones that remain are more ‘mainstream’. I still appreciate Korean and Japanese beauty products and find them interesting and exciting, scrolling for new products weekly. So, I’m happy to have Tonic15.com brought to my attention with some serious skin care with an edge – I’ll always love a rabbit-eared Tony Moly lip gloss, but now I’ve been diverted by Beigic.
I don’t know why this is so appealing – almost want to frame it. I’m wearing this moisturiser today and sure enough, it’s doing a beautiful job on this chilly day. It’s founders say they’re inspired by the shade beige (and if it’s alright for CHANEL I think it’s alright for anyone else!) which helps them find the small pleasures in life (actually, if we think about it, the quiet of calmer colours is soothing against the backdrop of noisy and bright shades) so it’s a considered collection that focuses on minimalism and sensorial pleasure. One worth exploring further I think, but in the meantime, Comforting Cream is exactly that fuelled by ceramides and Allantoin as well as green coffee bean oil and madecassoside (a derivative of Tiger Grass and you will have heard of it in the form of Cica) and definitely an ingredient you’ll be seeing more of for its soothing properties.

You have come across this product before because I’ve featured it before when Selfridges was in the throes of accumulating K-Beauty brands. This Orange Cleansing Sherbet has changed a bit in appearance but it’s still the same sleek, nourishing and deliciously soft cleansing balm. It doesn’t really smell of oranges (although I’m so invested in the name that I could convince myself it does) which probably bodes well for sensitive skin.
The brand is Aromatica which specialises in dry skin and sensitivities and it’s so pretty – this is probably the least beautiful of all its products so take a look at Reviving Rose Infusion Serum instead HERE. However, you can buy a small size of the cleansing balm for £6 HERE and I’d say that’s worth every single penny.
Dr Ceuracle isn’t one I’ve come across before but this is a great place to start. Hyal is a serum that contains 6 weights of hyaluronic as well as panthenol and niacinamide. It’s delicious on the skin as a quick boost. I could spend (and have spent) rather a lot of time on this site because there are many new finds with new ingredients that lift them well out of the ordinary. So, don’t say that clicking through HERE doesn’t come with a warning! Other brands to get to know are Klairs, Sioris and By Wishtrend. Oh, and they also have Huxley which I liked very much when I was sent samples from Harvey Nichols a few years ago – a bonkers backstory about the desert which I am sure is causing regret when it’s so hard to link every single product back to a desert tale but there you go.

I was thinking about to buy again korean skincare products because I LOVE them sooo bad! Reading your post is like a signal!
There are some great brands – I need to explore Klairs more myself because it’s so popular. x
Thanks Jane for posting this. Perfect for quirky Christmas presents for K-pop obsessed teens!
