Korean Trick

Blog about Korean cosmetics, reviews and articles

Strawberry jam, apricot syrup, and forest berry mousse for delicate lips

A multi-step Korean lip care routine is a thing 🙂
I have tried a multitude of lip balms from local and European makers, but couldn’t find one that worked well. If I forgot to apply it, then my lips immediately got wind burnt and dry.
I have read tons of Korean lip care reviews in our group and on other sites. I ordered and immediately hit the jackpot. I’m so happy!

Now I have a full set of Korean lip cosmetics. I love sweet berry and fruit scents, so I ordered products from different brands and different lines.

Strawberry Jam from ETUDE HOUSE.

Berry Delicious Strawberry Lip Jam Scrub. Can be ordered on еВау and Amazon
A very cute glass jar and the smell or strawberry jam. I want to eat it, especially since it tastes sweet 🙂
I use it once a week. I apply a bit of scrub to wet lips, massage for a minute, then wash off with warm water. It exfoliates the lips very well, and they stay smooth and soft for a long time.
Contains strawberry extract, brown sugar, walnut shell powder and glycerine. Due to fruit acids and vitamin C, the scrub works as a peel. Walnut powder and brown sugar exfoliate well without scratching the delicate surface of the lips. Glycerine softens and hydrates.

Forest berry mousse by Laneige.

Lip Sleeping Mask by Laneige is my undisputed favorite. You can buy it on eBay or Amazon.
The scent of forest berries is delightful, a bright jar and a cute silicone applicator in an even cuter silicone envelope.
I apply the mask on the lips 20 minutes before bed, it’s not sticky, but I give it a little time to absorb.

By morning, the lips are very soft. Since it doesn’t say anywhere that the mask can’t be used during the day, I also use it as lip gloss. It doesn’t melt and gives a moist look and a slight pink tint to the lips.
This overnight mask solves the problems that a regular lip balm can’t handle.
Contains extracts of raspberry, blueberry, and strawberry. These berries not only have tons of vitamins, but also acids such as lemon, apple, wine and salicylic. Due to the vitamins, acids and glycerine the mask intensively hydrates the delicate lip surface, preventing flaking and chapping.
I use it twice a week as a night treatment and every day instead of lip gloss. It’s very economical, so I think it will last a long time.
The pictures show the texture of all treatments well: the thickest one of the scrub, smooth and shiny of the night mask, and sticky, clear as a tear of the essence.

Mizon Apricot Syrup.

Mizon Collagenic Aqua Volume Lip Essence can be bought on еВау or Amazon
Contains marine collagen, olive oil, grape seed oil, cacao extract.
I apply it morning and night. Lips don’t get dry and really do look more plump, probably due to good hydration and nourishment.
The essence smells like fresh apricots, isn’t sticky, and gets fully absorbed in about half an hour. The lips become soft and smooth. The essence is applied under gloss or lipstick. It can also be used over tint or lipstick as a clear gloss for extra hydration and care.

I recommend all three treatments; they work very well.
