Well, Stowaway Cosmetics has just
released a set of four face items that are each only...
Hi Tapisphere! 🌹
Q. If you could choose only one product line to use, which would it be? Why?
My answer: Swanicoco. Because they have a large selection of products addressing a wide range of skin care concerns – including hair and body. They manage to satisfy my love for fermented ingredients and Hanbang AND my desire for products backed by results driven, scientifically sound research. I also feel that I’m getting more for the money, few of their products are much over $50,00. To seal the deal, they use quality, effective and skin-safe ingredients. I wish they made a night mask, though.
How about you?
Ahhh what a question!! Though I’d choose Cosrx. They make simple formulas that cut out all the crap. Their products are gentle, effective, and don’t break me out! Plus, they’re great for folks on a budget!
Yeah, so far I’d go with either Cosrx or Swanicoco for the same reasons! Most of the other brands I like wouldn’t qualify because they’re missing key categories like sunscreen or chemical exfoliants.
COSRX was on my short list. I put a lot of thought into the brands I use before deciding upon Swanicoco. I agree with the excellent points about you make about COSRX. Their formulas are simple, gentle and effective. I love how you put it because the “cut out all the crap” aspect makes me feel like I don’t need to be a chemist to understand what I’m putting on my face. I use the Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence and honey overnight mask every night. At this point the essence is an HG for me. Do you have a favorite COSRX product? Affordability is a huge selling point, too! 🌹
This makes me want to try the Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence, even though the galactomyces products I have tried so far have not played well with my skin (SKII and Missha’s Time Revolution FTE). The honey overnight mask also looks good.
My absolute HG cosrx product (and just one of my HGs in general) is the snail essence. I’ve been using it consistently for 3 years now and I need to grab another bottle since I’m running low!! My skin just isn’t the same without it.
Wow! That’s a real endorsement for the snail essence! I’ll be sure to give it a real try. I bought one at the same time as the Galactomyces 95. After trying them both a few times I gravitated to the Galactomyces. The COSRX snail essence is an HG for so many people that I’m sure I’m missing out by having mine collect dust! I’m curious about the difference for you when you don’t use it. What’s its main benefit for your skin? 🌹
That’s totally fine. It could just be a case of YMMV, since there are some HG products on here that my skin doesn’t vibe with.
For me, I can tell that my skin isn’t quite as plump when I don’t use it. It’s definitely a subtle difference, and folks with normal or dry skin may not notice a huge improvement, but there’s just this fullness when I use it that I miss when I don’t. It’s also very soothing, and as someone with acne-prone skin, that’s something I’m always interested in.
Love that question! (Plus the “Tapisphere” — love it!)
Ahhhh, one product line??? Must you??? Tbh, if I had to, I’d say Purito. I’m looking at my vanity and there is just so much Purito that I really love. There’s a variety of products and ingredients (which is why I can’t go with my beloved Earth’s Recipe), and their focus on some of my HG ingredients (niacinamide, centella), which is why I can’t go with SanDaWha, makes Purito a contender. But please don’t make me choose hahaha
Right now I have a lot of COSRX in my routine, so if you forced me to choose just one line, I’d go for COSRX. I’m really glad I don’t have to limit myself to only one product line though 😀
The posts start below and work upward.
Aww so cute! Reminds me of one of the cats my family had when I was a kid.
And wow, you were not kidding about being able to open a small k-beauty shop! You will definitely have fun trying all that stuff!
After I took everything out of the boxes to take the pictures, my first thought was disbelief at how much there was. I do look forward to having fun with everything, but I was serious about giving a lot away as gifts. K-beauty has done so much for my skin. I want to help my friends understand how transformative it is. Were I to keep it all, I could practically bathe in it 😉. I have two very spoiled cats. Thanks Mariposa! 🌹
Oh my, what a beauty! The little paw 😍
My flatmate and I will be catsitting two lovely cats for her brother for a week from the 19th on, and I can’t wait to spoil those cats rotten 😋
If my current flat allowed cats and if it were bigger, I’d totally already have adopted two of my own. Well, and also if I had already successfully gone through the procedure of reversing my cat allergy 🙈
And, finally… The samples included with numerous orders. Also, sorry for the poor quality of the pics. I took them in low light with flash, so they’re over saturated. And a very interested kitty kept trying to get on the displays 😁!!
Wow wow wow! I LOVE those eclado samples, and all those sheetmasks 😍😍😍
Hi sweet Kimmy! Well, many apologies for not seeing this post earlier! Obviously I don’t spend much time on my wall. I’m too busy browsing and buying wayyyy to much! I could really use a few clones about now! 😉 ECLADO is my crush. (Swoon and gracefully collapse on the strategically placed over-stuffed, velvet-upholstered chaise lounge.) I just purchased a serum from them and I’m a tad giddy with excitement. 😘
No rush, that’s the beauty of the Internet. We’ll see each other’s comments and replies eventually 🙂
How is that serum working for you? And which one is it?
Also, I count nine beautytap cards. A beautiful display of “collected works” 😀
Oh my! All that Sulwhasoo goodness 😍
Hi sweet Kimmy, I haven’t visited my wall in a long time and just saw your comment! Yes, I have little restraint when it comes to Sulwasoo! 😘 I hope you’re doing well. My skin thanks me every day! Right now Sulwasoo is on sale and I’m in trouble 😉🌹
So relatable. Sulwhasoo, no. 1 wrecker of strong wills all around the world: RIP wallets. I’m doing well too, though my skin is still getting soothed and babied back to what counts as normal for it. Some weeks ago it threw a sudden fit out of nowhere and decided to one day up and leave its cozy Established Routine Ranch. It took the train from Irritation Station all the way to Breakout Town. I suspect accidental sun exposure that I don’t remember now. Took all actives and most ingredient-heavy products out of my lineup and that seemed to do the trick. On the flip side that means I’m less tempted to get adventurous for a while. Money has the chance to get saved for future skincare sprees 😀
I’m sorry to hear that your skin went rogue! I occasionally strip my skin while exfoliating and end up having to baby it back to health. I have a whole set of products I use for such times. I remember you mentioned a really gentle skin care product line that beautytap doesn’t carry yet. What’s it name? I haven’t purchased and Sulwasoo products during this sale because I’ve already bought an essence from The History of Whoo. I’m really excited to try it! It’s a first essence and not one of super expensive ones, but still 😊! I hop life’s treating you well sweetheart. I’ve noticed that you use the British spelling of English. Are you from Great Britain? I live very near to…[Read more]
Thanks ❤️ The super gentle skincare brand is Pyunkang Yul. It’s by the renowned Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic that’s famous for treating atopic skin disorders. Their ATO line is so gentle it can be used on babies. All their products have a minimum of ingredients, and also the safest. I’m just…hhhh.. I’m SUCH a fan! My favourite is their Essence Toner, I feel like over the first 2 weeks of first using it my skin has really balanced itself out, and I always have at least one backup of it. I really hope beautytap will start carrying it someday 😊 I haven’t tried anything at all from The History of Whoo yet, but I’m longingly looking at all their pretty packaging all the time, as…[Read more]
Uiii! Lots and lots of SanDaWha! How does your skin like it?
Alright, here goes… The Postal Gods were good to me. I’ve finally taken pictures of what amounts to approximately my first six weeks on the site worth of orders. I decided not to try anything until I had received all my initial purchases. As I was displaying everything from picture taking, I had numerous thoughts: 1. I’m definitely a k-beautyaholic. 2. I could open a small, illegal k-beauty shop in my home. 3. Now I have Christmas and birthday gifts covered for my friends and family… for the next several years. 4. I’ve eaten my shoe budget for the foreseeable future. 5. I’m in heaven 😁. So here it is.
“I’ve eaten my shoe budget for the foreseeable future” SO RELATABLE! Though last month I did absolutely have to buy shoes and limit the skincare budget, because I found the most classy beautiful Peter Kaiser heels I couldn’t live without. MAJORLY comfortable.
Is that the Hanyul Pure Artemisia Fresh Calming Water? Have you tried it yet?
Please deliver my orders. I\’ve only misbehaved a little this year.
waiting is really a pain but upon receiving it worth the wait🙂cheer up dear it will come soon
Thank you sweetheart ❤️ The wait is hard, but I was being tongue-in-cheek. I will admit to checking outside my door for packages several times a day, though! You are kind! 😘
i agree i do that also and i want to open it upon receiving im too excited 🙂😂
I know that feeling! Waiting on my orders too 🙏🏼😂
I have three orders completed and on the way. And a couple of them should be arriving soon. I wonder if I have the willpower to wait for all of them to arrive before I open them! I think that’s in the category of Miracle… 😁😉
I have 3 on the way too! But I definitely can’t wait for all of them to come before opening! Do report back if you do!!
I hope you’ll get it quickly ! I’m really impatient too, I hope we won’t have to wait for too long… Anyway, it will be worth it 🙂
I know this is silly and juvenile, but it would be great if we get them on the same day since we’re waiting together 😁😘
Totally ! It would be really great 😀
Wah, that’s such a cute and cheeky little prayer, I couldn’t help but click follow right away :DDD
You’re the sweetest! I’m glad you picked up on the cheeky! Taken literally, it’s just strange! 🤪
