Meet the new kid on the K-Beauty block, The Orchid Skin. What she lacks in age (this cutie is only four years old) she makes up for in innovation. Here are some bestsellers and must-tries.
1 Orchid Flower Moisture Tok Tok Hand Cream, $7.50
This cream sold an incredible 600,000 units in Korea in a single month, and for good reason. This special formula comes out as a gel, but when rubbed into your hands, turns into drops of water; forming a protective barrier that’s not greasy at all.
2 Orchid Flower BB Cream, $13
With the same moisture-protecting ingredients as the Tok Tok Hand Cream, this BB cream absorbs easily, offering light coverage with no greasiness. There are two undertones in the collection – pink and nude.
3 Pink Fantasy Lady Nipple Patch, $4.50
Along with elbows and knees, your nipples can get dry and cracked. This multipurpose patch contains oils, hydrating orchid extract and vitamin E to soothe any of these areas. It brightens your skin tone too!
4 3-in-1 Eyebrow, $13
This one’s for the girls who have always dreamed of being low-maintenance packers. Smudge, shade and comb your brows to Cara Delevingne levels of perfection with this one handy little brow pen.
5 Lip Stay, $24
Don’t you wish you had the power to make your lip colour last as long as you want? Often sold out in Korea, Lip Stay can make that dream a reality for you and your favourite shade of lipstick.
