Exploring Korean Beauty With BNTNews Korea

I’m no beauty queen. I’m just beautiful me.


The K-wave is not only rocking the entertainment and fashion scene, but it’s also creeping into the beauty scene. This month, I’m all about exploring natural beauty with my new prized possessions from leading Korean online news outlet, BNTNews!

We all know that Korean beauty innovation has won effusive praise from beauty enthusiasts all over the world in the past decade and it seems like they’re all set to reign over the industry in the next decade too.

And we’re talking about vegetable-infused creams that can remove makeup gently, essences that contain fermented ginseng and pencils that can give you eyebrows that last an eternity until you remove them. :p

Haha! I think I got your attention. Now’s let’s scroll down to see what’s cooking in the Korean beauty scene. 🙂

You can’t get any healthier than this. It is made from parsley, carrot, cucumber, tomato and water parsley to help you gently remove makeup and grime from your face without drying your skin.

I suspect these green and red granules contain the concentrates of the veggies themselves as we’re advised to massage the cream until the granules completely melt on our skin for best results.

Upon application, it actually feels rather thick and heavy on the skin but when you wipe it off, it leaves a divine dewy finish. It smells heavenly too – almost like freshly cut cucumbers.

Here’s how you can use it – simply massage the cream onto your face, then wipe the residue with tissue. After that, throughly cleanse with your cleanser and your skin will be as fresh as a daisy.

3.5/5 Honeyz crowns for its ultra wholesome ingredients!

Has the recent capricious weather wreaked havoc on your skin? This next product might be right up your alley.

RIN Bi-gyeol Soo Essence is made up of several oriental ingredients including a six-year-old fermented ginseng and an oriental herbal flower complex called Danhwayeon. These nourishing ingredients promise to deliver intensive moisturization to your skin. It also contains sodium hyaluronate which lets the moisture penetrate more effectively into your skin, niacinamide which clears and brightens the skin and adenosine which firms your fine lines.

In case you’re wondering what the herbal complex consists of, here’s the active ingredients list for your reference. 🙂

The texture actually feels like a thicker version of Hada Labo’s SHA Lotion. However, it is still rather light when you glide it on the face. After massaging it for a few seconds, the product disappears into the skin leaving behind a brighter looking complexion. The tiny wrinkles on my skin also seemed to diminish slightly.

As mentioned a gazillion times, if the product comes in a pump bottle, you know it’s for life. Haha! Okay. Maybe not for life but you know it’ll stay fresh and that will lead to optimal results.

For that and its revitalizing formula, I give it 4.5/5 Honeyz crowns.

Eyebrows are the one thing you can get into shape without exercising.

BEIGE Chuu Hard Finish Eye Brow

I actually prefer pencil to powder formulas as it usually gives me greater precision and more control on the shade of my brows. I can build on the color as I go along. Imagine my excitement when I saw this in the package from BNTNews!

According to BEIGE, this eyebrow pencil not only gives you delicate eyebrows, it also promises longevity with its oil-control powder formula that boosts adhesion and prevents smudging. Now you don’t have to worry about your brows fading into oblivion in our humid climate.

To top it off, the product is also made with more durable materials so the crayon feels a little harder than other pencils I’ve tried. This means you don’t have to face frustrating ‘tip breaking off’ incidents when you apply more pressure next time!


I like that the harder texture does not compromise on the efficiency of the product. I was still able to create natural looking arches when I filled in my brows. I’ll still recommend using a spoolie to even out the lines so the thicker brows won’t look too harsh on your face.

3/5 Honeyz crowns for its great staying power!
