Wanted to review this quite a while back after i loaded onto my instastory and dayre but did not have a chance to because i was caught up with work and trying out new cooking recipes! Not really recipes i think..more like hmmm experiencing new dishes and cooking styles.
This is my favourite tone up balm (colour correcting) which i bought it when i was in Korea in Oct 2017.
It is supposed to help to brighten and even out your skin tone before you apply your Bb cushion or foundations. Some people use this alone like a bb balm but i use it as a primer before i pat on my bb cushion. It is abit matt so i don’t use it alone and coverage is not there. I apply this and then my DPC cushion.
HanSkin Moolbalm (Pink).
Hanskin is the first brand to develop BB cream and their BB cream really sold out.
Their concealer is very good too! It is called the Blemish Cover Concealer which comes in 3 tones. I reviewed before 1 or 2 yrs back. Now they changed packaging and came with free concealer brush at ₩7,900. The concealer was sold out in the colour “Bright” after some famous Korean make up youtubers raved about it. This colour is damn hard to get. Everytime i want to buy but cannot find because out of stock.
You can buy HanSkin products in Korea’s Olive Young stores.
I like how it brightens and tone up my skin before i apply my Bb cushion.
Because the tone is pinkish, not many people will suit this balm. Some people will end up with greyish skin tone. Just like how i cannot use Sulwhasoo’s cushion cos the cushion makes my skin looks yellow lol.
This balm comes in 2 tone – Shimmer and Pink. The one im using is Pink. Shimmer one is in cushion form and works more like a whole face high lighter.
I cannot remember how much i bought it but it should be around ₩15,000 .
If you are looking for a tone up balm, you can give this a shot but before you buy, try the sample first. You can buy from Olive Young in Korea.
If you are keen to get online, GlobalHmall in Gmarket does sell this. I blogged about the list of shops and departmental stores that ship to Sg few posts back. GlobalHmall is where i get my stuff too. Sometimes the deal there is cheaper than i get from store because there sre discount coupons. So i even get from there and ship it to my Mil house in Korea. Just that if i ship to her house i get free shipping lo. And i bring back home everything when i go Korea.
Cannot wait for next trip leh. I need stock up my skincare. 3 more mths to the trip and i already finished up my stock ups which i bought last year. Heng ah..Guardian got 30% off skincare products from 28th June to 1st July. I went to grab some from CNP Laboratory brand first to last me till end Sept.
