[Vlog + Giveaway] Testing out the best of K-beauty with Fiddysnails and Beautytap

We’ve got an extra vlog this week (look at us, being extra productive), and we’re trying something new! (Also giving things away! Details below.)

Girlfriday and I had the chance to hang out with beauty and skincare guru Fiddysnails—aka Jude, aka editor at large of Beautytap (formerly W2Beauty)—and shot a video talking about some of the best K-beauty products of the past year. (Mostly, she told us what she thought was the best and we played with products.)

We know Beanies love a good poll, so you may be interested to know that Beautytap is holding a “Best of” poll of their own: the Beautytap 2017 K-Beauty Awards. If you’re as beauty-obsessed as girlfriday and I are, you’ll have lots of opinions about products, and this is your chance to let us know what’s your holy grail product (or what everyone should stay far, far away from).

And to make things more fun, we’re giving away a box of 10 beauty products from the “Best Of” nominees. Free K-beauty!

 

 
GIVEAWAY RULES:

  • Comment below with your 3 favorite K-beauty products of 2017. Make sure you comment with a registered account, and you’ll be entered to win!
     
  • BONUS: Get a second chance to win! Hop over to Beautytap, register an account, and leave the same comment here (your 3 favorite products).
     
    Everyone who comments on Beautytap will also receive a 10% off coupon code to use on your entire purchase at Beautytap. (Coupon applies to your entire cart, although not on sale items or in conjunction with other codes. Coupons will be sent out after the giveaway closes.)
  •  

  • Giveaway is open for a week, until December 20, 2017 at 11:59 PM (Pacific Time). We’ll contact the winner directly.

Good luck!

Just got into k-beauty this year so I've only been trying out some tried and tested brands and products but this is what I fell in love with!

1) Innisfree, Green Tea Seed Serum --- love how hydrating this is and is not sticky at all despite being on the thicker side (CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THIS!!!)
2) Su:M37 Miracle Rose Cleanser Stick ---- Seriously the glow after using this is unbelievable
3) Neogen Bio-peeling Gauze Wine ---- This makes my skin so soft that I can't stop touching my face

1. Sulwhasoo Overnight Sleeping Pack
2. Dr. Jart Ceramide Liquid
3. Apieu Madecassoside Cream

First and second are life changing staples, been loving them for years. The third is a type of cream I've been looking forward to trying and represents a type of moisturizers that really blew up this year. I have been following k-beauty since its initial hype and a lot has changed since I stepped away this year. Smart decison of w2beauty to recruit some good bloggers onto their team, though I've never purchased from there before because other online shops had more competitive prices.

I have only started taking skincare regimens seriously for the last 3 months. I don't know many products yet, still trying to find out which ones work the best for me. Of all the ones I've tried so far, my favorites are:
1. CosRX BHA A-Sol: I used this as a spot treatment for my acne. I did it twice a day and I was saved from monstrous acne I used to have. There are so many CosRX products I want to try, but the pimple patch, advanced snail mucin, and good morning cleanser are the ones I will definitely buy for the next round!
2. Secret Key Snail Essence: The first snail mucin products I've tried and made a visible difference to my skin. It reduced my skin inflammation and helped to stop my acne from growing too big.
3. Nature Republic 92% Aloe Vera Gel: The last addition to my regimen and a team member for defending against acne. Less inflamed skin, less huge acne. My skin feels healthy and plumped.
I finally see why skincare becomes so addicting. So many products to try, not enough time and money! Also, thanks for organizing the giveaway.

These are my 3 holy grail K-beauty products of 2017:

* Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream
-I never leave the house without applying this on my face. It's perfect for covering the redness of my face without feeling heavy and it matches my skin tone perfectly.

* COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask
-This product exceeded my expectations. It helped hydrate my face without feeling sticky. My skin looked and felt amazing the morning after.

* COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

-I love how this product is so gentle on the skin. It didn't make my skin feel tight and dry unlike the cleansers that I have used before. Life changing!

I got into K-beauty this year and tried out a lot of different products. Here are my 3 favorites:

1. Etude House Dear Darling Oil Tint: Definitely my HG lip-tints. They're somewhat moisturizing (a little like a liquid tinted lip balm but with much more color) and the colors are beautiful! My favorite shades are PK001 (a coral-pink) and RD302 (a somewhat-sheer pinkish-red), but I also really like RD301 (a bright, more opaque red) and might try out more.

2. Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask: All of them are super-moisturizing and each has a different effect, like soothing or acne-clearing. I love the Aloe and Green Tea ones!

3. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream: All of Klairs' products are amazing for my sensitive skin, but I think I like this product the most. It's very soothing and moisturizing and it works great under makeup.

1. Mizon black snail cream- my go-to daytime moisturizer that’s light in texture, nourishing, and forms a perfect base for makeup (also looks great on its own!)
2. Sulwhasoo overnight vitalizing mask- makes me feel like a K-drama star when I wake up in the morning with glowing skin!
3. Cosrx snail essence- this was the turning point for my skin, and caused acne scars to heal, recovered my moisture barrier, and left my skin properly moisturized without being overbearing.

This year my favorite K-beauty products were:
Su:m 37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick - all the reviews sounded amazing, so it's been on my wishlist; this year I got it and it's become my favorite part of my daily routine.
Laneige lip sleeping mask - it shocked me the first time I used it; I didn't know there were so many layers of chapped skin on my lips...
Secret Key starting treatment essence rose edition - it feels great on my skin after cleansing, and it's the first fermented product I'm trying.

(and special mention goes to the Etude House My Beauty Tool Jam Air Puff Bundle - too cute!)

hey everyone! hope u r all doing well! here is my list for my best favourites:
1) Aloe BHA skin toner has really been my top
favourite toner as they only use onyl natural ingrediants
plus some active ingredients like salicylic acid so its probably the best combo for me as its gets the job done without being too harsh on skin also its pocket friendly.

2) COSRX ultimate nourishing rice overnight spa mask
this product has actually tranformed my textured skin
to a smooth, even and plump looking.

3)COSRX triple C lightining liquid. This product has actually
made me notice a difference in my skin from the first day i used it.
I could actually say that this product has actually given me confidence by fading away all those brown spots.

Thank you Dramabeans so much for this giveaway, everyone needs a little bit of that Korean magic in their skin!

My three Favourite 2017 Korean products are.
1. Skin Care Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule as it's so soothing light on the skin
2. Jeju Sparkling Mineral Mist as the citrusy scent is very uplifting to the senses and awakening to the skin, getting it glowing. The perfect finishing touch to any natural looking make up on the rare occasion I wear it or just on it's own. My skin always feels like it's bathing in the most mineral enriched water when using this.
3. The Jeju Volcanic Colour Clay Mask, especially in the Green, helps me fight any blemishes and acne, drawing out any other impurities and adding health to my skin so it's always left feeling soft, cleansed and revitalisingly restorative ( restoring its natural elasticity and I daresay even strengthening it). My skin shines with health and serves as a great way to relax the mind & body after a busy & stressful day/week.

Put together all these products truly help my skin to glow and reach its full potential without breaking too much of the bank either. My acne prone skin has since subsided a little from using this and even my friends and year mates have commented on my decreasingly blemish affected skin. It makes me look and feel good, I believe that with a smile added, anything is possible! :)
(The Innisfree No Sebum powder would be a 4th as it adds a nice, sparkly finishing touch without looking too obvious and cakey. I use it sometimes when my blemishes are having their best days in the spotlight and love how it is lightweight and natural looking, my skin feels naked but it does its job!) :)

My favourite K-Beauty products of 2017 would be, in no particular order:

1:- Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner
(lightweight, hydrates, soothes and coddles every ill in sight, meant to be layered and drenched in)

2:- Manyo Factory Galactomyces Niacin Special Treatment Essence
(glorious ingredients, lives up to its long name by restoring even skin tone and texture, a brightening star in the vanity)

3:- Evercos Herbal Clinic Hanbang Ginseng Sheet Mask
(all of the varieties actually please, once again, no such thing as too much fermented goodness, all-hail-hanbang proof in a mask, lovely texture and generous essence for a small bit of coin that results in 100 masks a haul a year)

And these are my precious loves.

oooh what a fun thread. Just three?

1. Heimish All Clean Balm - LOVE
2. Innisfree no sebum blur primer - I use this just about every day
3. COSRX acne pimple master patch - I'm still testing this one out.
Mostly I think it's great but sometimes I wonder if it's doing anything at all.

honorable mention - sunscreens in general, both Korean and Japanese. They are just so much better than american sunscreens and don't make my eyes red and watery.
