Dear, Althea elves, my top 10 k-beauties



It’s the season of giving (and receiving ;P). Have you been naughty or nice this year? I’ve been pretty nice this year, I think... haha! And as I’m growing older, what more can I ask for besides skin that looks as youthful as ever and doesn’t age. Which woman doesn’t want that?! And what better skincare and makeup products than Korean formulated ones? Well, they do have quite a high standard of beauty and their products have always been highly raved about.


If you’re thinking about gifting, how about checking out the top 10 k-beauty products I thought would be perfect for gifting, whether to a female or male (they won’t complain I’m sure!)... or me... 

Let’s start with the lips? Why? Um, mistletoe DOH. 




LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask, SGD 18 | SHOP

I love that this is applied right before sleep and it is left on like an overnight mask. Because I am lazy (or maybe most people would be...) to reapply lip balm N times throughout the day. Best part? No gooey feeling when kissing your bf/gf/husband/wife/crush/whoever you want to kiss la! This lip mask promises to moisturize your lips, emphasize WHILE YOU SLEEP, with Moisture Wrap tech, making your lips smooth and kissable all day long. Take my moolah.





innisfree Orchid Eye Cream, SGD 30 | SHOP

Eyes are the window to the soul. I have heard so much about innisfree skincare range and has read many reviews about it that I have to include this in MY wishlist. I mean, it’s gotta be worthy of being in the top 10 if there is so much hype about it right? One of my besties is using their skincare range too and she is DEFINITELY the right person to trust in this one. Fo’ sure. I think this cream will open the window.


innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam, SGD 9 | SHOP

While I’m on innisfree, why not just share everything innisfree that is in my top 10. With Jeju volcanic ash extract, fermented satsuma extract and orchid flower extract, this cleansing foam removes dirt and sebum while gently exfoliating. Full 5 stars with 485 reviews on Althea SG. What could go wrong? I want to be the 486th reviewer. HALP. $9 only, Xmas present for me pls thank you.

innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum, SGD 29.30 | SHOP

Eh? Not so hard to guess why are there so many innisfree products on top 10... Another full 5 stars with 450 reviews. What other reason is there not to include this? I want to get into the hype and find out for myself if it is really deserving of the 5 stars. ...Or is it because I just want good skin. I mean, I know green tea is high in antioxidants (BOOM. Anti-aging!), rich in amino acids and minerals.



LANEIGE Time Freeze Face Fit Roller, SGD 47 | SHOP

Not gonna BS here, I want my V-shape face back and think this will help. I’m just crossing my fingers on finding my V-shape face back with this. Give it back to me, Althea elves!


MEDIHEAL Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask, SGD 2 | SHOP

Teatree targets acne. And I am way past my teenage but life is not treating me well. I still get acne now and again and masks are easiest to use and also a way to pamper myself. So why not? Why MEDIHEAL? Their sheets are made of high cellulose long fiber and has passed the skin irritation test. Ok. Sounds top 10-ish.

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum, SGD 85 | SHOP

I have never used super expensive skincare products. $85 for 60ml? It must be real liquid gold in a bottle. If people are buying it at that price, it must really work. It’s a concentrate that is meticulously concocted (ok wow?) with peony, sacred lotus, Solomon’s Seal, white lily, Rehmannia extracts over an 18-hour process. Why do they sound like rare items from a high level quest in a fantasy game? 




Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner, SGD 29 | SHOP

When putting on make up, a prepped face makes any kind of makeup look better and last longer. No dry flakes showing anywhere or highly visible pores and lines. Y’know, those obvious pores and lines from certain foundations really make me look 10 years older. But then, if I have these 10 products on my list, I think I won’t need foundations anymore la hahaha!



Mise-en-scène Perfect Repair Serum, SGD 10.60 | SHOP

When you take care of your skin, never forget about your hair. Well this proves I didn’t. How weird will I look if my face looks 20+ but my hair looks like the ocean splitting in half... can’t imagine. Don’t want to imagine. Argan oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil. Sounds like the perfect trio for supple and healthy hair to me.



peripera Airy Ink Velvet (6 colors), SGD 10.90 | SHOP 

When one has good skin, all you need is some lip color to look all made up. This one from peripera is a lip tint in a velvet matte formula. I absolutely love the texture of it and depending on which color you apply, it can look natural and lasts a long time. It can be applied as gradient or full layered.  It is airy and lightweight just like its name I don’t really feel it when I wear a light layer just enough to look fresh and healthy.


What do you think about my top 10? Would you be trying or gifting any of them? Thank you in advance if you are getting something from my wishlist for me. If not, nevermind, I hope the Althea elves sees this and send them to me coz I think I’ve been pretty nice this year. Hehe.
