I don’t know if you know this, but with each passing day; Asian beauty products keep going more viral and viral that even celebrities have taken up to it! However, amongst those products, there are some really crazy ones that will most definitely bring out the skeptic in you.
1. Bigan Beauty Face Expander
This is a cheek training product that claims to tighten your skin and prevent it from sagging. The “muzzle” thing is made from silicon, so that it won’t hurt your face, not so sure about that. This product promises firmer, younger looking skin. P.S. It’s probably a bad idea to buy anything that has the words “Face Expander” on it.
2. Besolbo – Royal Salmon Egg Return CreamI know this looks ideal for sushi lovers and I very much believe that if I actually did get my hands on one of those little containers, I would definitely test their edibility. However, what we didn’t know is that apparently, salmon eggs can help fix a lot of skin problems, including: acne, roughness and dark spots. The product promises to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. It also promises to regulate nutrition production in order to further improve your skin condition in general. But the real question is: Will you eat them or use them on your face, son?
3. Bubble Masks
Yes, this is the same skincare mask that you’ve been seeing on your instagram for some time now! Bubble masks are the latest beauty trend that Korea has graced us with. It’s safe to say that these masks have totally gone viral! Apparently the mask is a really good pore cleaning product. The reason why it bubbles up that way is that the ingredients of your mask react with the oxygen in your skin to really penetrate that skin of yours and give it a proper cleanse. But anyway, I’m pretty sure everyone’s using it because it’s a damn trend and it makes you look like Dumbo.
4. Holika Holika – Pig Collagen Jelly Gel Mask
No. Nope. There’s no way in hell this pig jell-o thing is touching my face. This mask is made from pig skin. oink oink. Apparently, though, pig collagen is a lot like human collagen, in that it can really really keep your skin super healthy. It keeps your skin tight, hydrated and gets rid of fine lines, leaving you with soft and luminous skin.
5. Eyebrow Tint
Pretty positive that this is a really bad idea that will leave me looking like Beetlejuice’s girlfriend. I mean, yeah, this obviously lasts longer than normal eyebrow pencils, gels and pomades but, still, I’d go for the classic way of filling my brows in. And I don’t know about you, but the above photo isn’t at all encouraging either. Those eyebrows look orange, mate. they’re effing orange.
6. Enprani – Dear by Fondant Cheese Foundation
Nope, you ain’t dreamin’, kid. This face foundation is, indeed, made of CHEESE. And not just that, Enprani also make cheese compact powders and cheese face cream (melted cheese and Bounce cheese). This cheese foundation is SPF 30. The makers of the product state “Rich nutrition cheese ingredients provide moisture, blemish free coverage of the skin”. I am addicted to cheese, man but I wouldn’t waste it on my face.
7. Etude House – Cherry Lip Gel Patch
And yet another instagram trend that went so viral, Emma Stone herself posted a photo in her collagen lip patch while getting ready for the Golden Globes. This cute as hell lip mask promises to give you lips just like those of K-pop and K-drama stars. The product promises to diminish your dead skin cells and generate new healthy ones. The patch promises to fix your chapped lips using its cherry extracts to keep your lips soft and pink. It also leaves a layer of soft moisture film on your lips to protect it from damage.
8. Face Waver Exercise Mask
While this mask definitely looks like something out of 1974’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it promises to stretch your face so hard, your wrinkles will vanish. The mask supposedly works on tightening your skin and strengthening your facial muscles, resulting in a younger looking you.
9. RIRe Lip Powders
Those lip powders turn into liquid once you set them on their lips. The product aims to keep your lips hydrated and moisturized all day while giving your lips just the amount of color tint it needs. I would try this one only because I think that the concept is so cool!
10. Skin Food Gold Caviar Toner
I already feel fancy AF just looking at it! This product contains gold flakes and Russian Caviar that both promise to nourish and moisturize your skin to the max. I would most deff use this! How fun would it be to apply gold particles to my skin like an insanely rich fortune heiress??? I’ll take one!
