In between the roller-coaster emotions that we go through while watching a K-drama, we can't help but notice the beauty products that our favourite heroine is using. Here, we'll pinpoint some of the beauty products as seen on our favourite K-Dramas.

Two-tone lip bars are all the rage right now, partly thanks to the smart product placement in our favourite K-dramas. The character Kim Bok Joo on Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is spotted using the Laneige Two-Tone Lip Bar in the shade Milk Blurring. The shade gives her character a sweet, innocent look!

The residents of Belle Epoque never fail to make us laugh with their unique personalities and crazy adventures. Aside from the one of a kind storyline, we’re also drawn to the different fashion styles of each character. One of the fan favourites is Ye-eun’s girly style. Remember that whole five minute scene where she meticulously puts on her eye makeup? A very similar palette to what she used is  the Holika Holika Personal Eyes in Moon Kissed


The Body Shop White Musk Eau de Toilette (Goblin)

This eau de toilette was mentioned in several episodes of Goblin, and for a moment it seemed like it was the star of the show. Now, every time we get a whiff of this floral-vanilla scent we’ll remember the bittersweet and heartfelt moments of the show.

Let’s take a moment to salute Jun Ji-Hyun’s beauty. How is it possible that she looks as young as she did back in the My Sassy Girl days of 2001? We may never know the secret to her ageless beauty but at least we’ll get to wear the same shade of lippie when she played as a mermaid — and that’s good enough for us.





Mamonde Creamy Tint Colour Balm Intense (Pinocchio)

If you’re going to uncover a conspiracy and unveil the truth in national television, then you better look good while doing it! Park Shin Hye’s character, In-Ha, wears the Mamonde Creamy Tint while reporting the whole, naked truth.

Our mums deserve all the good things in life. With their hearts filled with love and care for us, it’s only fitting that we return the favour by giving back the best way we can. This Mother’s Day, we’re all about spoiling our mums; and what better way to do that than by making them feel good while looking good?



Give your mum a gift with skin-lovin’ goodness that will last a long, long time. On top of the skincare game is the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. Needless to say, it definitely should be on top of anyone’s gifting list for every season. We share three reasons why.

It works wonders


The Facial Treatment Essence has a cult-like following, and for good reason. With over 90% Pitera — the brand’s signature ingredient consisting of a unique composition of amino acids, vitamins, organic acids, minerals, saccharides, and other components for making the skin more youthful — this essence is youth in a bottle. Transform your mum’s skin and let her experience better texture, radiance, firmness, clarity, and wrinkle resilience.

It’s versatile


Using the essence as it is normally applied will provide a lot of benefits already, but did you know that it can work for other skin matters, too? Aside from giving you crystal clear skin, the Facial Treatment Essence can also address other skin woes such as caked up makeup, eye puffiness and more. We shared six ways to apply your essence here.


It’s a collector’s item



Mums have a knack for collecting things, whether they are ornaments or kitchenware. If your mum is a fan of keeping anything beautiful, then she’ll definitely love the delicate beauty of the limited edition Sakura Facial Treatment Essence bottle. Let her remember the thought you put into giving her a gift that delivers long-lasting benefits whenever she sees the lovely bottle displayed on her vanity desk.
