Of course, it was no accident that I picked the night mask by Korean brand LANEIGE. This luxury cosmetic brand is quite complex with it’s cutting edge technologies and latest developments in cosmetology and cosmeceuticals. In much higher price brackets than what we are used to seeing in Korean cosmetics. (more…)
It is no secret that the most popular facial products in Korea aim at lightening pigmentation and anti-aging.
An interesting fact – you won’t find a serum “for women after 40 years old” or cream “for aging skin 60+” from Korean manufacturers.
