Let's be real, without Korean beauty we're not sure where we would be. Between the absolutely gorgeous nail trends they've given the world and their tricks to keep our makeup looking darn near perfect, our beauty game has been taken up approximately 100 notches from all of their innovative ideas.
So while the latest in Korean beauty trends isn't even a little bit surprising in terms of its origin, it has still totally managed to grasp our undivided attention. Welcome to the beauty world fruit slice face masks, the most instagrammable face mask, yet. (Read: How To Work Sheet Masks Into Your Beauty Routine)
Trying out the last @kocostar mask I received from the @k_beauty_expo~! These sunflower mask patches make me look like a leopard hehehe 🌻🐆🌻 I'll have a review up on my blog soon! . . . . . #kocostar #kbeautyexpo #뷰티박람회 #abcommunity #bblogger #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #beautyinkorea #southkoreanbeautyproducts #skincare #motd #fotd #beauty #makeupaddict #makeupjunkie #hydrate #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #bblog #skincaremurah #skincarekorea #스킨케어 #화장품 #instabeauty
We know they look bomb, but how do they work exactly?
The masks created by the popular K-Beauty brand Kocostar are a variation on their oh-so-popular (and TBH, life-changing) sheet masks. However the difference is that these are cut into smaller, more concentrated "mini-masks" in the shape of our favorite fruits and vegetables, formulated for all different types of skin concerns. For example, the watermelon and cucumber versions are designed for keeping skin hydrated, while the lemon slices are used to brighten complexions, and the tomato formulation is geared to detoxify and improve elasticity.
@Regrann from @peachyqueenblog - Need to try this 😍🥒 @aeliyakhan 🥒🥒🥒🥒🥒🥒 I saw one of these sheet masks on @asos_beauty from @kocostar a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to try the Cucumber one. They have a few different ones (rose, lemon, etc) Directions: ❇️It is great for dry and tired skin ❇️Apply and remove after 15-20 minutes ❇️Gently massage excess product allowing it to penetrate the skin ❇️Contains cucumber extract Verdict: Fun to try. It does hydrate your face right away but it's not super long lasting. It is refreshing and gives you a soft glow! What do you think of this product? Have you tried it? ———————————————————————— #fakeupfix #hynaughtymakeup #bretmansvanity #labellasocialite #allmodernmakeup #fakeuproom #primpfix #peachyqueenblog #korean #makeuptutorial #makeupclips #makeup #bbloggers #the6ix #beautyqueens4ever #kocostar #skincare #makeupartistsworldwide #tutorial #hairmakeupdiary #koreanskincare #blogger #toronto #korea #korean - #regrann
Technically, the face masks (that come in a pack of 12) can be used anywhere on the body or as a spot treatment, but most stick to putting them all over their face for a bomb-looking 'gram and a splash of skin nourishment.
@Regrann from @iwasakamiyuki - I'm obsessed with these fruity slice masks from @kocostar!!!😍 The slice fruit (and vegetable cos cucumber) masks are available in Lemon, Cucumber, Watermelon and Tomato in @sephorasg stores, and Oh my God they smell AMZAING and are super hydrating!! All of them contain their own fruit extracts and Vitamins to suit different skin needs 🍉🍋🍅 The best thing about the slice masks is that you can use more than one type on different areas and even on neck and body, or have a fruit salad on your face by using all of them at once~ Kocostar carries Head-to-Toe Mask range including hair, hand, face and foot masks too, so remember to check them out as well when you visit your nearest @sephorasg store! #kocostar #kocostarmask #fruitslicemask #sephora #sephorasg #iwasakamiyuki #bblogger #youtuber #sgblogger #koreanskincare - #regrann
The masks just became available at Sephora Malaysia, so we're sitting patiently until they can be bought at Sephora in the states. But until then, try some out for yourself from ASOS in watermelon, tulip, sunflower, lemon, tomato, and so many more for $6.50 a pack!
