W.I.N. Beauty Kit

What is Next, an upcoming start-up that focuses on monthly subscription kits featuring popular Asian beauty and skincare products, is launching their service from to globalize Asian products on a household scale. Asian beauty products are available in the states at a higher cost, and W.I.N. strives to increase the accessibility of products in the market here. There have been major Asian beauty retailers popping up in SoCal, but W.I.N. focuses on offering premium quality products at an affordable cost. 

I was lucky enough to receive one of their exclusive pre-launch beauty kit filled with their favorite products, and upon opening the package, I was impressed at what I received. I got: A'Pieu Deep Clean Foam Cleanser, Missha Natural Soft Jelly Cleansing Puff, Skinfood Chlorella Nose Clear Patch, The Face Shop Character Mask, the Secret Key Snail Repairing Sun Cream SPF 50+/PA+++, and a cute little bag to put everything inside! 

A'Pieu Deep Clean Foam Cleanser- this bubble cleanser is perfect for me as it removes the imperfections and dirt deep in my pores after a long day out. After massaging my face and washing it off, it leads to smooth and clear skin. This product uses Harrogate mineral water as one of its active ingredients which is one of the finest premium spring waters in the world.

I also got the Missha Natural Soft Jelly Cleansing Puff that I paired with my new cleanser. This puff contains activated carbon, natural minerals, and bamboo charcoal to fight bacteria. It also came with a string attached so you can hang it to dry after squeezing out the water. The second time around using my cleanser, I applied it on this puff and massaged it on my face. The texture on the puff felt great, and it removed my dead skin cells with its dense fiber structure. This puff is great for eliminating impurities and provide a thorough cleansing. 

After cleaning my face for the day, I applied the Secret Key Snail Repairing Sun Cream with SPF of 50+. Snail cream is highly popular in Asia as the slime extract is fantastic to fighting premature aging. It also strengthens and evens skin texture and restores the quality of collagen and elastin fibers of the skin. The cream wasn't oily at all, and it felt light on my skin!

Last but not least, I got the Skin Food Chlorella Nose Clear Patch and The Face Shop Character Mask. Skin Food has been opening shops here in SoCal, and I really like the products that they offer as it is healthy for the skin! The nose patch is perfect for removing blackheads and sebum, and it contains chlorophyll which is present in all green plants. The character mask is a super cute animal mask that contains hyaluronic acid and collagen that moisturizes and improves your skin. I have yet to try these two products, but I am excited to!

The beauty kit I received was such a cute surprise to get! I didn't exactly know what was coming, so opening it up was super fun. I really liked the products I received as everything is very economical and useful- I know what I'm using for the next few months! Thank you W.I.N. to sending a box my way! 

MEMEBOX X KOCOSTAR SLICE SHEET MASK

I recently came into possession of these unique slice sheet masks by Kocostar thanks to Memebox, and I seriously love the concept! They offer three different fruits in which each has different functions- lemon, tomato, and cucumber. The sheets are in an actual slice of the fruit which is super cute, and it is perfect for placing onto the areas of your skin that needs help. 

It is recommended that you put on these patches after cleansing and toning your skin. After 10 to 20 minutes, remove the sheet and massage the remaining liquid onto your face for the nutrients. 

Lemon- Lemon is perfect for uneven skin tone as it is a natural brightening ingredient. With the lemon, one can reduce the appearance of dark spots and skin discolorations. 

Cucumber- Cucumber has always been great for cooling the face, and this sheet provides nourishment and moisture for relaxation. Super refreshing! 

Tomato- I ended up using this sheet first as I just got back from a week long trip in Miami, and my skin was very dry. Tomato is perfect for brightening up dull and exhausted skin as it is enriched with lycopene (antioxidant that helps eliminate toxins that cause dullness and stress). I love how I was able to place the sheet wherever I wanted, and put it on my cheeks as it was super rough and dry.

The patches come in different sizes; there is a larger and a smaller size which is great for treating certain areas. I love how convenient and small these sheets are and how effective they are on my skin! Definitely a new staple for me, can't wait to try the rest of the fruit flavors!
