This local skin care is just as good as a K-beauty product!

And so I’ve often heard, that once we’ve experienced K-beauty, we will never turn our backs. I, myself, am guilty of being a K-beauty addict as most of the products that I smother my face with are Korean. Although there are a few local brands that I love and am loyal with, my heart beats for K-beauty.

Now what makes K-beauty special? Why are we so in love with them? Does it have anything to do with our K-pop or drama idols? Although that may be the case, I can say that the main reason we get so into them is that they are gentle, mostly made with natural ingredients, and they deliver!

As a late bloomer in all this beauty shebang, I had lost all hope in improving my skin. I’ve tried rejuv sets, facial treatments, and a lot of commercialized products. I kept jumping from one product to another because none of them did any good on my skin. Even some acne gels that promised to get rid of acne the next day only made it worse! Thank goodness I met K-beauty.

But what if a local brand performs just as good as our beloved K-beauty?

I am so excited to tell you about the brand called In Her Element and the two products that they have sent over for me to try and review. As you know, I always give my honest opinion whether the product is bought with my own money or is sent by a brand. So rest assured, all the information you’ll read here is entirely based on my experience.

However, not every product released created a spark. Some were hot, others flopped. So for today’s post, I’m sharing with you my Top 10 local makeup products that stood out in 2018. I based my list on my personal experience and the people’s reception.

So here it goes…
