Sharing K-beauty favorites

I’m super excited to share all of the fun products I have been trying out from I Dew Care and Nooni. They’re two K-beauty brands that are available on Memebox. I’m a new ambassador on the site and you can shop all of my favorites here!

Let’s start with my favorite item: the Nooni Applebutter Lip Mask. I have chronically dry lips and have to put on lip balm several times a day. I first used this as an overnight mask and was happily surprised when I woke up with moisturized lips! I loved it so much that I started applying it a couple times during the day as well. It goes on like a shiny balm – it’s not too glossy, but it looks pretty enough to wear on its own. The texture melts into the lips without being thick either. I also love that it comes with a little plastic spoon because I can be a bit of a germaphobe and try to avoid lip products in jars.

The Appleberry and Applemint Lip Oils are lovely too. They aren’t as moisturizing as the mask, but they do leave a good bit of hydration behind. The berry one leaves a pretty red stain on the lips while the mint isn’t tinted at all. 

I have also been trying out some face masks from I Dew Care. Isn’t their packaging so cute? I love the emojis on their boxes, pastel colors, and reflective lettering.

One of my favorite items is actually the Silicone Brush Mask. It makes applying any face mask so much faster and less messy. It also helps with even application for masks that need a thicker layer, such as these peel off masks! Disco Kitten is an exfoliating and illuminating mask while Sugar Kitten is hydrating. They peel off very nicely in one piece, plus they have the prettiest iridescent formula that makes for fun Instagram Stories haha.

Lastly, I’ve been enjoying the Double Down 2-Step Mask. I have never seen a sheet mask with multiple steps and I think it’s such a smart idea! First you exfoliate with a mini mitt for 5 minutes to prep the skin. Then you apply a brightening sheet mask for 20 minutes. Sheet masks are a nice treat in my opinion, but they’re usually just relaxing or hydrating in my experience. So I was really surprised that this one actually makes my skin look more radiant and clear and feel softer.

It’s pretty rare for me when everything I try from a brand works out, so I’ve been really impressed with both Nooni and I Dew Care! I’d recommend any of these products, but my absolute favorites are the Applebutter Lip Mask, Silicone Brush Mask, and Double Down 2-Step Masks!

These products were kindly gifted via Memebox and all opinions are my own. Thank you Veronica!

Mini Mask Reviews

Rounding up four face masks

I love testing new face masks! I recently received a couple with my last Sephora order and had two from past Birchboxes, so I wanted to share my thoughts.

Tara Harper Resurfacing Mask ($58)

I really enjoyed the texture of this mask. It was a gel-like base that was easy to spread on the face. You are supposed to leave it on for 20 minutes and then remove with warm water. This little jar lasted about 3 uses and I loved it. It definitely made my skin softer and more radiant. I also love that the Tara Harper line uses safe ingredients, is effective, and feels luxurious.

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask ($30)

I am obsessed with this clay mask! It’s great at drawing out impurities and it actually makes my pores look smaller. It feels like a mud mask but isn’t overly wet. It’s definitely thicker – almost like a cream. It does dry down so you know when to remove it, but it hasn’t dried my skin out. I only put in on my cheeks, chin, and forehead. Reed and I have both used this a couple times and there are a few uses left, so this is a generous sample. I would definitely buy the full size!

Farmacy Honey Potion Hydrating Mask ($46)

This mask is bright yellow and goes from a thick jello-like texture to a creamy foam once rubbed in. You’re supposed to feel warming while massaging for 2-3 and I don’t really enjoy that. I have some flakiness around my nose and this didn’t fix that either. I wanted to love this because I’ve heard such great things about Farmacy, but I won’t be using the rest of this.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask ($26)

I tried a few things from Balance Me thanks to Birchbox and I’ve liked everything I’ve tried! This mask only requires 5 minutes and it’s a physical exfoliator and brightening mask in one. It has an interesting, natural scent that’s grown on me and I like how it dries down quickly. It’s also pretty affordable.

All in all, it was fun to try out these different face masks and 3/4 is a pretty good success rate to me! Have you tried any of these masks?
