January Week 3 K-Beauty Skincare Releases

Sunday, January 17, 2016

Hi again, here are the new K-beauty skincare releases for this first week of January 2016.

Most are freshly announced, or only available on their official Korean websites. These products can be purchased through using a buying service like the one provided by Avecko.com. One of the first stores with international shipping to carry new releases is Tester Korea. At times, new releases will start popping up in their store within a couple of days, so make sure to check them out!

I've started marking products that stand out to me as **Kinseng Picks**. A Kinseng Pick is either innovative, has a good quality/price ratio, an impressive ingredients list, or is hella cute.

New at Missha: Line Friends Collection, Super Aqua Line, Miscellaneous Masks and Things

Missha x LINE character collection, the skincare bits (see the makeup here):
Missha Line Friends Edition Secret Love Hand Cream comes in Green Grape, Lemon Grass (Cony Rabbit), Mango Flower (Cony Rabbit), Blue Daisy (Sally Duck), and Cotton White (Brown Bear). These hand creams contain meadowfoam seed oil, glycerin, and various botanical extracts depending on the flavor. 3000 KRW.
Super Aqua Line: The Super Aqua line will be renewed on January 19th.
Embo Gel Mask Line: These are 'nude hydrogels' which means they're gel masks that are extremely thin. The Embo Gel Masks come in Nourishing-Night (collagen/ceramide/honey), Relaxing-Night (aloe/pine/chamomile), Vital - Night (centella asiatica/rosemary/grapefruit), Shining- Night (pearl/lotus/licorice root), and Waterfull - Night (hyaluronic acid/green tea/bamboo). 2500 KRW each.
