Trying Korean Beauty Products from YesStyle!

See comments

If you have been reading Makeup Savvy for a few years you will know I love to try out Korean beauty products! I find them fun and actually high in quality! It started out with trying a few products from Tony Moly and falling in love with the brand. So when YesStyle asked if I wanted to select a few products to review, I jumped at the chance!

 Of course I picked up a few items from my favourite brands, Tony Moly and Etude House but I also tried to pick out a few unique things from brands I hadn't tried before. 

If you are thinking of trying out a few Korean beauty products YesStyle is a great safe place to shop and you are guaranteed 100% authentic items, fairly fast delivery and free p&p to the UK with any £22+ spend or it's £3.39 for orders under that - not bad at all! My own items came within 9 days, all packaged well. 


Korean Beauty Sample Box 
£13.20 - YesStyle here 
To try out lots of different Korean product I decided to first pick up this beauty box with a mix of 10 items from all different brands. I was tempted by a Etude House focused beauty box but decided it would be good to try out new brands. Upon opening the box I instantly felt the contents were worth the £13 price tag - with 2 sheet face masks, lots of minis to try out and a full size magnetic nail polish... though it is without a magnet, oops!

I've yet to try out all the products in the box as there are so many but from the products I have tried I've enjoyed them all. I was instantly drawn to the Etude House I Need You, Mugwort Sheet Mask mainly because of the unusual name... Mugwort extract is apparently a leaf extract that improves circulation for a clearer complexion - who knew! I found this, like a lot of Korean sheet masks I've tried, to be highly refreshing and relaxing. I'm not sure I could see any changes in my skin straight after use but it was lovely to use as a pamper treatment and my skin did feel so smooth afterwards. As for the It's Skin Collagen+ Sheet Mask I plan to save that for another pamper evening. Other samples I really liked that I would look into buying full price were Clean it Zero Cleanser, a firm solid cleanser with a lovely subtle floral scent and the Skin Food Agave Cactus Toner. Both really lovely products. If you are new to buying Korean beauty products this is a perfect way to discover all different brands.


Skin79 Crystal Peeling Gel 
£7.50 - YesStyle here 
Whilst browsing the thousands of products YesStyle sell I stopped on this - for only £7.50 it looked like a luxury product from the packaging and as I always enjoying non-abhavsive exfoliators I decided to get it. And I'm truly glad I did as I LOVE it! This is essentially an AHA peeling gel that sloughs away dead skin cells and exfoliators the skin without using any force or synthetic particles. After washing the face and patting dry you simply massage a small amount of the peeling gel (which feels more like a cream to begin with) over the skin until you start to see the gel balling up and peeling. The peeling definitely looks and feels like it's the dead skin cells being removed but it's more likely to be the gel drying and peeling off the skin. However once washed off after a minute or so your skin is left amazingly soft! I mean baby soft! If kept up twice a week this gives ultra soft radiant skin. I've tried peeling gels in the past but this so far has given the best results! I really can't believe this luxury feeling product is the price of an average skincare product on the high street.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask
 £15.90 - YesStyle here 
When looking at skincare I'm always on the look out for a good clay mask. I'm talking ultra oil absorbing and great on blemishes. So this Super volcanic clay mask seemed perfect! I also loved the packaging with the metallic copper screw lid. On first glance of the mask I was sure it would be a thick set-hard type of mask, you know the one that cracks as soon as you move your face? But surprisingly the thick feeling mask spread out really well meaning only a little is needed to cover the entire face and even more surprising even though it does dry it doesn't crack, AT ALL! It also has to be the best mask I've tried for my oily t-zone and blemishes, really absorbing oil from my pores and leaving my skin looking clearer and definitely helping to dry out spots. This may not be the cheapest of masks but it certainly delivers! Thoroughly impressed.

Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream 
£7.50 - YesStyle here 
Firstly, isn't this amazing! Korean beauty brands know how to do packaging but this is something else! You can also find peaches, tomatoes and red apple packaging from Tony Moly FYI. Amazing packaging aside this is another peeling cream but one more suitable for regular use and sensitive skin. It can also be left on the skin for a few minutes after massaging as a face mask. I've used this a few times now and found it to be more cream like than the Skin79 peeling gel and much nicer in scent with a natural fresh apple fragrance - really very nice! This truly is a lovely skincare item both the product itself and the packaging. If you are wanting to try out a peeling gel for the first time then I'd highly recommend this one. 

Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick - Golden Tail Star 09 
£4.66 - YesStyle here 
 Onto makeup now with this beautiful gilded gold stick eyeshadow. I personally love cream eye shadows in this form so I was instantly happy I came across it! The shade as you can see from the swatch above is such a stunning gold that really catches the light and looks beautiful over the entire eyelid. I've also found the eyeshadow to really stay put without creasing for most of the day! For the price this really is wonderful. Another amazing product! Note to self - buy the other shades!

Hanaka Strawberry & Cotton Candy Chu Chu Lip Scrub 
£7.50 - YesStyle here   
If there's one thing I feel we are short of in the UK it's lip scrubs! Other than Lush & Sara Happ what do we have? Not very much! Which is why I picked up with kawaii lip scrub with an amazing sounding scent. I can confirm the scent is god damn tasty, I'm talking I want to eat it it's that good! Plus it's truly a dense sugar scrub that exfoliates the lips well, removing all dead skin from the lips. This is such a cute product that is fun, yummy and practical!

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister Mascara 
£11.90 - YesStyle here 
 Lastly I had to try out one of the often raved about Majolica Majorca Mascaras! This was mainly because I wanted to see what the hype was about but also the amazing packaging sucked me in. Why don't we have packaging as good as this in the UK? Really, why? On first inspection of the wand I instantly discovered it was a brush-on fibre mascara. This was kind of what I was expecting but not with such an unusual wand. But thankfully I found the wand easy to use and loved the slimness of the flat brush - no catching the bottom lashes as you coat the upper lashes. I also found the fibres did add a little extra length though not as much as I was expecting and more of a subtle non-clumpy look that might be better for short lashes. The only thing I didn't love about this mascara was that it doesn't curl the lashes at all, in fact I was sure it made my lashes appear straighter! Not something I want at all. Mascara is definitely a personal choice depending on what you are looking for and sadly due to how this mascara straightened my lashes it's not for me.

Overall I had a really good experience shopping at YesStyle, with fast delivery and on the whole pretty amazing products, especially when it came to skincare. 

I must discover more Innisfree products now! 

Fee xo.
