K-beauty is the wave right now, and I decided to dive right in and test if the hype is real. Watsons were generous enough to drop some K-beauty gems in my lap, and I’m about to spill the tea on whether they’re worth the buzz – the good, the meh, and the “Nah, not for me.”
Dual Pop Comfort Eye Patch
AED 99.00 on Watsons.ae
Let’s start with the eye patches. They stick around on your skin no slipping and sliding. But here’s the sitch: they didn’t exactly do much. The upside? They made me feel like a total “it girl” while I chilled with my iced coffee and hit the textbooks. So, they get points for the vibes!
Solait Moisturising Sun Lotion Cream SPF50
AED 55.00 on Watsons.ae
Honestly, I never was a sunscreen person, but this one changed the game. It’s got an amazing consistency. I even throw in some dewy highlighter for that fresh-face glow. There is no greasy drama, just legit sun protection and radiance.
Me+ Hyaluronic Acid Booster Serum
AED 69 on Watsons.ae
This one’s my FAV. I’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner. It’s all about the moisture boost, and with winter creeping in, it’s the real MVP. My skin’s on a whole new level of hydration and health since I started using this hyaluronic booster serum.
Bye Bye Blackhead 30 Days Miracle Exfoliating Bubble Foam Cleanser Green Tea Tox
AED 100.00 on Watsons.ae
Now, this one? Not my jam at all. It had a little beef with my skin and caused some irritation. So, it’s a pass from me.
Anti-Hairfall Shampoo & Conditioner Coffee Thin, Fragile Hair
AED 35.00 each on Watsons.ae
Now, let’s talk about these shampoos. First off, they smell amazing – like a breath of fresh air. But what really got me hooked was the shine. It’s not that “wet hair” shine, and it stays soft and lush even when it’s dry.
REVOX B77 Just vitamin C 20%
As for the vitamin C, I’m still getting cozy with it. I need some more time to test it out, but so far, so good.
So, there you have it. Korean beauty is more than just a trend. Some products are lit, some are just alright, and some might not be your thing. It’s all about experimenting and finding what works for you✨
