Achieving that natural glow for the holiday season is easy with HYDRA ION+ and BRIGHT ION+ – CRYSTAL MOIST’s skincare lines from Korea.
Don’t let year-end stress steal the glow from your skin. Restore its natural radiance and beauty with CRYSTAL MOIST, a skincare range entirely formulated and made in Korea, using minerals combined with nutrients from Korean deep ocean water.
Ju Eun-Young (above) of Korean girl band Two X says she can’t live without her favourite CRYSTAL MOIST products, and declares that the formulation is perfect for Asian skin – and especially her hectic lifestyle. “CRYSTAL MOIST is also dermatologically tested and proven, so I can trust it to take care of my skin’s needs,” says the rising K-pop star.
The BRIGHT ION+ range energises your skin for a healthy glow, enhances skin tone, and reduces the appearance of dark spots with the help of a marine algae complex called Sea Shine from France, and Floral-Bright Complex with extracts from the peach flower, Japanese apricot flower, lotus, magnolia and camellia.
The range consists of facial cleanser, facial toner and face essence milk, as well as these brightening products.
Brightening Eye Concentrate, $23.90 (20ml) Light and refreshing, this soothes and brightens the delicate eye area, reducing the appearance of dryness and fine lines.
Brightening Facial Mask, $19.90 (7 pieces) This contains a brightening mineral essence enriched with Super Fruit Complex with vitamin C, Sea Shine and Floral-Bright Complex. Nano-ceramides help to soothe skin and lock in moisture.
Brightening Face Cream, $24.90 (50ml) This intensive cream brightens and smooths skin, and delivers long-lasting hydration with the aid of Super Fruit Complex, plus the combination of Sea Shine and Floral-Bright Complex to enhance skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Continuous application will have your skin looking flawlessly smooth and luminous.
