DOWN THE GARDEN PATH
Formulated for younger skin, K-beauty brand Mamonde uses ingredients from flowers such as hibiscus, camellia, magnolia, honeysuckle and lotus (all grown in its own garden) to churn out skincare that helps tackle concerns ranging from dull skin to UV damage. Plus, if you’ve watched last year’s K-drama hit Doctors, you’d have noticed its lead actress Park Shin-hye, who’s the brand’s ambassador, pouting her way through the show in the brand’s Highlight Lip Tint in #06 Pin Spot.
