My Top Ten favorite Asian Cosmetics

9:49 PM Moi Sanom 7 Comments

I have been using Asian skin care and make up products for a while now, and I thought I should make a little compilation of my favorites. These are items that became instant hits or are long time favorites I have repurchased over and over.
I can not stress again and again how great Asian cosmetics have been for me, starting at the lower price to quality ratio and their amazing magic they have done to my face.
They won me over instantly with my first purchase and made me a convert and addict for life!
And here I present to you my Top 10 (11) favorite Asian Cosmetics:   

Tony Moly Kiss lover live tint in #4 Vampire red
My favorite Lip tint to date. 

It has the most gorgeous shade of Burgundy red and an incredible staying power. 
It is easy to apply and layer. 
Perfect for that vampy look, reviewed here

Face of the day Vampire Look
A candid dorky shot Johnny Clyde took of me, one of the few moments I wans't trying to act like animals
Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence
This product gets mixed reviews, some people love it some people hate it. 
I have a love and hate relationship with Benton products, as I have told here, but this stuff is magic! No matter what weird moment my skin is going through, be it eczema or a bad reaction to another product, it always helps calm it down and heal it faster. 
I have repurchased this already and know I will continue using it daily.
My mom has had almost miraculous results using Bentons snail line too, more on that coming up in the future.

Biore Moist Block Gel Lotion in Moist ex

I really love this stuff, and it is surprisingly underrated. 

It is an ultra hydrating milky lotion. 
A multi function product that is so hydrating it helped more than one face get out of a severe bout of drought.  
When I apply this on my face, my skin feels instantly quenched and happy!

Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in #8 Blueberry Pie

I love this blush! 
I have been looking for a Lavender blush for a while, I used a MAC eye shadow to make up for it in a lighter purple shade, but it didn't really do the trick. 
This blush is smooth and velvety, it is very layerable and gives you a nice blushed look while still accentuating paleness.

Face of the day Pastel Look

Tony Moly Cats Wink Clear Pact
I was never a fan of powders since I have very dry and scaly skin, but now this is my must have make up face product of all time! 

It goes on quite sheer, adding a tiny bit of brightness (aka the vampire touch), it diminishes my pores and evens out my face. 
I honestly don’t know how it does that since it is quite sheer without exarberating my dry patches.
It makes my face look like a dolls face! 
What more could I want from a powder?

Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink lip tint Red

This was the first tint I tried and the tint that made me fall in love with lip tints.

I have tried many since but this is still my favorite. 
Cherry is a gorgeous pinkish red, but the pure red shade of this line is the best Vintage red color! 
I like it even more than my Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon *gasp!*


Face of the day Dark Look
The perfect Vintage red
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse SPF50+ PA+++
This stuff is so awesome I wrote a whole love rant about it here
It will change your life and everyone should try it at least once! 
I am now on a mission to find a better or equally good sunscreen, but I don’t know if that is even possible.

My Beauty Diary Sheet mask in Arbutin
I am not a big fan of sheet masks since I am lazy and prefer sleeping packs. 

I have tried a few sheet masks though and this is the best I have tried so far and the only one that gives you instant results! 
I have only one left I am saving to review in the perfect lighting conditions, since it is possible that the incredible results will not be visible on camera. 
But seriously after using this your skin is so plump and bright it is astounding!

Holika Holika Soda Pore Cleansing Water
This is one of the Holy Grail items of my husband.

I just ordered him the third bottle. 
I used to use it as a sole cleanser for him at a time when I foolishly believed he hated foam cleanser (he loves them), but now I use it instead of a toner. 
This is the product that keeps him practically blemish free! 
I had several occasions when I didn’t take it on holiday with us and he started breaking out, two days after using it again his faced went back to its blemish free state. 
I don’t know what is in this miracle product but it does wonders for him. 
He has sensitive skin and my skin is very dry and it works great for both of us, non drying and non irritating. 
Another underrated product in my opinion! 

Civil War reenactment
Handsome and blemish free!
Nature Republic Snail therapy 80 Emulsion
I received this as a sample recently from a friend and it is one of those very few products I tried once and thought, oh I am in heaven! 

The sample lasted me 2 weeks and I have 2 more coming in the mail to make a more extensive review. 
But lets just say it is the second item I have ever used that made my face smooth and unscaly!
And this is not even a moisturizer! 
I think this is a god send for people with dry skin, but light enough for any skin type, maybe not oily unless it is wintertime. 
My friend also really liked this product and she has combination skin.
This one went straight to my Holy Grail of face awesomeness list!  

Update: Review here

Bonus item:

Etude House Super Collagen CC cream
This stuff is awesome! 
It is very liquid so it is easy to apply, it blends in flawlessly and gives you more coverage than most CC creams but less than a BB cream, while feeling weightless on your face.
It actually provides moisture to my super dry face, and Mother became an instant fan when she started using it. 
More extensive review here until, mini review here.



What are your Holy Grail, Oh my god I can't live without this, this changed my life and I will buy it forever and ever products?
