My 2013 Korean Cosmetics Wish List – Skinfood & Miscellaneous brands

Published January 15, 2013 by Beauty-full Dreams

Finally, the very last part of my already long list of most-wanted Korean cosmetics for 2013 !


Watery Berry Eye Cream


There are lots of anti-aging, anti-wrinkle or brightening eye creams on the market but what I really need is a moisturizing one thus I’m very tempted to buy this Watery Berry cream.

Lettuce Cucumber Water Jelly Cream


Once again, I can’t resist a gel-cream made of lettuce and cucumber 🙂

Facial Ice Water Vita Tonic


They remind me of Holika Holika Aqua Splash -2°C Ice Cube :


You store them in the freezer for a while and when you take one of them out, it’s supposed to act like an ice cube and melt on your skin, leaving a moisturizing water on your face and/or body. I tried the Holika Ice Cube and I was quite disappointed : the cooling sensation is great, especially in the summer or when you’re feeling sick and feverish, but they never hardened like ice cubes, they were more like a slightly frozen jelly, so applying them on the skin was really messy (they melt ultra quickly, leaving water and jelly bits everywhere). The water was very moisturizing though and the smell was really nice too. So I hope the Skinfood Facial Ice Water Vita Tonic works better !

Good Afternoon Apple Cinnamon Tea BB


Skinfood‘s best-selling items in Korea, the Good Afternoon BB creams ! This line of BB creams includes various teas and natural ingredients in its composition to better suit any skin condition. There are 5 versions :

* Berry Berry Tea (acai/raspberry/green tea) = controls sebum & skin troubles

* Apple Cinnamon Tea (apple/cinnamon/green tea) = clears & brightens the skin

* Rose Lemon Tea (rose/lemon/green tea) = moisturizes & vitalizes

* Peach Green Tea = controls sebum & smoothens the skin

* Honey Black Tea = moisturizes & gives elasticity to the skin

Lemon Brightening Cleansing Tissue


I like cleansing tissues as I’m often in a rush so the idea of brightening my face while cleaning it in only 2 or 3 swipes sound pretty good to me 🙂

Such a smart way of packaging BB cream ! 🙂

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Too Cool Art Class Lip Crayons


The spitting image of my beloved Crayolas !!

INNISFREE Capsule Recipe Packs


These Capsule Packs are a wonderful idea ! Each individual mask contains 10ml of product, which is perfect for trying a new pack or buying several packs at once. Especially when each Capsule costs less than $1.50 (Korean price) !! Each mask makes 2 applications and is super easy to carry with you.

INNISFREE Jeju Sudachi Soothing Mask


I know that Okinawa’s sudachi (a citrus fruit with green skin and orange flesh, packed with more vitamin C than lemon), make great candies, now I’m waiting to see if Jeju’s sudachi can really sooth my skin.

NATURE REPUBLIC Jelly Drop Jam Balm – Melon Jam


Seriously, could this honey and melon jelly lip balm be any cuter ? ^-^

NATURE REPUBLIC Shaking Smoothie Lemon Vital Ice Mask


This big milkshake-like cup actually hides 6 sachets of cooling lemon mask 🙂

Y.E.T Break BB Waterdrop


This BB cream doesn’t only create waterdrops on your face but it also moisturizes and nourishes your skin thanks to its hyaluronic acid, olive oil, avocado oil, aloe vera, rose and papaya formula.

Y.E.T Citron Soap


A handmade soap full of citron and olive oil with no artificial color, preservative, surfactant or hardener ! This soap also exists in Paprika, Pink Clay, Cacao, Lavender, Charcoal, Mugwort, Houttuynia Cordata (an Asian plant used for detoxification) and Persicaria Tinctoria (Chinese indigo).

SHARA SHARA Virtuous Apricot Mask


An apricot mask already sounds appealing but an apricot mask with pomegranate and peach extracts on a bamboo sheet is even better !

SHARA SHARA Berry Berry Cleansing Sherbet


How am I supposed to say no to a sherbet texture with strawberry scent ? 😉

That’s all for my wish list ! But with the never-ending flow of incredible novelties released by Korean brands in the course of a year, my shopping list will surely expand dramatically soon !


My 2013 Korean Cosmetics Wish List – Lioele & Holika Holika

Published January 13, 2013 by Beauty-full Dreams

Part 4, already ! This wish list is getting a bit long, isn’t it ? But, hey, it’s for the whole year so it’s ok 😉


Aroma Washable Cleansing Lotion


Blooming Gloss


I already reviewed the Lovely Twoway  on this blog, now it’s time to try other shades 🙂

Seaweed 90 Trouble Care Mist


Powdery Sun Chiffon SPF 50


This Powdery Sun Chiffon is probably the most original sun care ever. It has a whipped cream texture that turns into a powder once applied. And it can also be used as a primer ^^

L’Cret Miracle Magic Lipstick SPF14 (Diamond Version)


Lipsticks that showed a totally different color on your lips were all the rage when I was a teenager so I definitely can’t miss these babies !

Snow White Cream


Holika Holika Snow White Foam Cleanser  does such a great job,  I can’t wait to try the cream of the same line !

Black Caviar Wrinkle Recovery Eye Cream


A future gift for my mum but shhh…

Soda Pore Cleansing – Cleansing Soda Water


I like the concept of this cleansing water : it comes with a tablet that you put inside the bottle, leave it (opened) to melt for about 18 minutes and there you have your soda water !

Holi Holi Magic Drop – Make Me Sweet


I don’t know if the scents are really as good as I heard but the mere bottle is gorgeous enough to buy these ^-^ By the way the 3 fragrances are : Make Me Sweet (fruity), Make Me Lovely (floral) and Make Me Pure (powdery).

My Wish Perfumed Mist – Fresh Ocean


When it comes to perfumes, I also enjoy the aquatic types (think Davidoff “Cool Water”) very much so a mist made of Alaska ice water, coral water and peppermint extract with an ocean scent is obviously on my list 🙂 FYI, the other 2 are White Floral and Grapefruit.

My 2013 Korean Cosmetics Wish List – Baviphat & Tony Moly

Published January 13, 2013 by Beauty-full Dreams

Third part of my 2013 wish list 🙂


Sugar Girl Baby Lotion


I’m really interested in these lotions since they work both for the face and the body and each of them have ingredients that are great for the skin (jojoba, evening primrose, chamomile for the white one / camellia, apricot, apple, grape, pomegranate, strawberry, watermelon, peach for the pink one / jojoba, macadamia, allantoin, lecithin for the orange one).

Sugar Girl Jelly Shadow


A couple years ago, pudding-like eye shadow was a big thing in Korea. I already tried and loved Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Shadows and now I want to try the Baviphat ones, which seem much more pigmented. I still regret not getting my hands on Etude House Pudding Dia Eyeshadows in time 😦

Fruit Miracle Apple Tanggle Jelly Mask Sheet


Once again, the jelly + fruit combination sounds good to me 🙂 I actually have the Lemon one but I haven’t tried it yet. There’s also a Peach version, for those interested ^^

Indi Girl Sweet Walnut Body Scrub


I have another body scrub by Baviphat, the Indi Girl Aroma Coffee Body Scrub, that I love (mmm, the heavenly smell of freshly ground coffee beans that fills up the bathroom 🙂 ) so I guess this Sweet Walnut must have a great fragrance too. And it will be much more convenient than dipping your fingers into the Aroma Coffee pot 😉

Fruit Apple Trouble Bye Cleansing Foam


This apple foam would be a perfect addition to my collection of fruity cleansing foams (I already have the Baviphat Natural Pure Facial Foams in Avocado, Peach and Citrus and the Orange, Pomegranate, Banana and Green Grape versions of the It’s Skin Have A… range) !

Lemon D-Tok Body Cleanser / Lemon D-Tok Body Gel


I don’t know if these slimming cleanser and gel are truly effective but products that contain lemon, orange, blueberry, cane sugar, maple sugar, caffeine, chili pepper, seaweeds and menthol can only be good for your skin 🙂

Red Apple Hand Cream


As you know if you read my Korean Cosmetics Advent Calendar, Tony Moly Red Appletox Honey Cream is one of my absolute favourite Korean products, so I can’t help but wanting this lovely Red Apple Hand Cream !

Expert Hydrogel Mask – Gold Peptide


Who wouldn’t want to try a mask made with gold extract ? ^^

Real Homemade Pack – Potato & Cucumber


I know that cucumber can do a lot of good to your skin but this is the first time I see a potato mask 🙂

Delicious Grapefruit Cleansing Oil Gel


I need an oil cleanser to thoroughly get rid of my BB cream so if it also has a wonderful grapefruit fragrance, that’s perfect !

My 2013 Korean Cosmetics Wish List – It’s Skin & Etude House

Published January 9, 2013 by Beauty-full Dreams

Second part of my 2013 dream list 🙂


Apple Peeling Tissue


Secret Body Solution Chic Cheek Patch Moist


I have combination skin so my cheeks can get quite dry at times while the rest of my face doesn’t need special care. That’s why I really like the idea of treating my cheeks separately 🙂 This line also includes a brightening patch for cheeks and moisturizing/cooling patches for the shoulders and upper back.

Mini Bebe Hand Cream


I have a soft spot for cute scented hand creams as you can use them several times a day and you can smell their lovely fragrance as often as you want on your hands ^-^ These ones are Fresh Lime, Vanilla Cotton and Cherry Blossom.

Tomajelly Mask Sheet


I don’t know why but I find the idea of a tomato jelly mask very appealing 🙂

Secret Body Solution Whitening Essence


I noticed that the skin on my elbows have become a bit darker and using a body scrub doesn’t make it lighter so I am really curious about this body whitening essence.

Sleeping Facial Pack – Pore Tightening


I bought the Moisturizing version (the pink one) for my mum a while ago and she’s very happy with it so I thought about trying the Pore Tightening one. It’s not so much for the effect on pores (mine aren’t really large) but it’s said to have a good sebum control so it might be helpful sometimes.

Missing U Lip Balms – I Can Fly


Cute animal + fun-shaped lip balm = winning combination !

Missing U Hand Creams –  I Can Fly


Help My Finger Nail Paraffin Pack


Pink Candy Sweet Cake Fragrance


I’ve always had a sweet tooth, even for cosmetics ^^

My 2013 Korean Cosmetics Wish List – Banila co. & VOV

Published January 8, 2013 by Beauty-full Dreams

A brand new year means new resolutions, new beginnings but also new shopping sprees ! Let me share with you my ultimate dream list of Korean cosmetics for 2013 :


Tea Party Mask Sheet Set (Apple Mint / Lemon Balm / Orange Pekoe / Earl Grey / Milk Tea)

bco2 bco1

Miss Water Mr Oil Hydrating Cream


Give Me Your Hand Watering Hand Cream (Grapefruit, Redcurrant)


I have the previous version of this hand cream in Sugar Lemon and I absolutely love it ! It’s a thick gel that creates water droplets once spread and does a very good job hydrating your hands. 🙂

Clean It Zero Resveratrol


I tried a sample of the very first Clean It Zero and I was amazed by the results ! This one contains resveratrol, which is a powerful antioxidant.

Prime Primer – Classic Matte

Eye Shadow


Super Food Farm Mask Pack



Castledew Watershot Foundation


I heard a lot of positive opinions on this Watershot Foundation so I’ve been wanting to try it for quite a while. The only problem is that I’m having a hard time finding it…

Castledew Watershot Base


I love water-based products so these bases are a natural choice. But, like its foundation counterpart, it’s not very easy to find online 😦

Castledew Pearl Up Eyes


The Castledew line was the very first Korean makeup products I saw. Unfortunately, there was no way I could order them back then. Now it’s time to do something about this unfairness 😉
