As a self-professed luxury beauty addict, I think of my collection as an investment. The excuse is particularly viable for skincare. After all, what’s worth investing in if it isn’t your own face?
Despite my status as a self-confessed skincare junkie, I’ve been rather slack in my approach to one of this year’s biggest skincare hypes; Korean beauty. K-Beauty emphasises the importance of skincare over make-up products, which is an approach that I wholeheartedly agree with. Don’t get me wrong, you know that I love my make-up, but thankfully the high-school version of me has evolved to use it as an enhancement rather than an attempt to cover-up problematic skin. I want perfect skin and the make-up skills of Kim Kardashian’s entire glam team. Too much to ask? Possibly, but I digress. All I know is that the Korean beauty I’ve tried has given me truly glowing skin.
Recently charcoal has been added into the strangest things; from skincare products to toothpaste to detoxifying drinks (I’m happy to drink Coke so why I found the black colour of Wow’s Dark Detox drink so off-putting remains a mystery). The bottom line is: clearly there are a lot of people out there who believe in the benefits of charcoal.
