The Korean Beauty Product Infatuation
This past week I attended my first Korean beauty blow out sample sale by Peach and Lily - an online website here in the USA that sells some of the most in demand Korean brands such as Tony Moly, Mizon, and Peripera.
My friend Erica from I'll Have Another, (also a fashion blogger) waited in line for almost an hour on the busy corner of 37th and 8th Ave so that we could take a peek at the hyped up sale. Luckily I was able to sneak away from work just in time to meet her at the front of the line. Once inside we luckily were able to find a few great items that were drastically reduced in price.
It's funny that the US is finally jumping on the Korean beauty band wagon. Obviously Asian skin - specifically Korean has always been known to be bright, pore-less and wrinkle free which in some part may be true, but also could have a lot to do with genetics. However, I do believe that the research and development of beauty products especially in Korea has been something that they've always had a leg up on the US...
