This post contains affiliate links* It’s time for part two of my recording sessions after the long hiatus! I can’t wait to have this long overdue K-beauty catch up with you, chatting about new K-beauty releases I’m coveting and all the skincare that’s been my best friend these past months!
I don’t know about you guys, but I am feeling stressed out to the max these days! Even though I finally got my second vaccine shot (Pfizer – which, in all truth, makes me feel oddly smug?!), the state of the world in regards to the pandemic still makes me terribly anxious about what’s to come in autumn/winter. So, I kind of need a chill K-Beauty Podcast episode after the slightly exasperating previous episode regarding the Korean sunscreen scandal. I really just want to hang out with you guys and discuss all the Korean beauty products that I’ve been loving lately, and those currently on my wish list.
I decided on a spontaneous, non-scripted, flowy kind of K-beauty catch up for today, which hopefully will lead to both me and you getting at least a momentary break from all the upheavals of the world. Did you know that there is a general election here in Germany in about a month? I am stressed, you guys – STRESSED, I tell you!
Ok, back to today’s episode: I actually started compiling my list of K-beauty products I wanted to talk about today a few months ago, and so by now some of the goodies on my wish list had already moved in with me and are now happily sitting on my vanity. So, I had to adjust said list of bit, but luckily I always have more than enough wish list backups, especially lately, with so many cool brands emerging and their products really appealing to me. We are also nearing the autumn/winter season, so I expect a whole bunch of new, probably richer-textured launches real soon.
Here is episode TWENTY-SEVEN of The K-Beauty Podcast: Let’s Have a Chill K-Beauty Catch Up
Episode Notes: Let’s Have a Chill K-Beauty Catch-Up
Some updates on the Korean sunscreen scandal
- If you haven’t yet, make sure to listen to my podcast episode which sums up the entire Korean sunscreen controversy with a detailed timeline and all the resources used for the episode listed
- Watch Director Pi’s latest video (you can turn on English subtitles!)
- In case you are curious, here is the English translation of the Korean Cosmetics Act – the three brands in question broke Article 13 of the Cosmetics Act and were penalised accordingly with a 2 months sales and marketing ban (though I remain unsure in how far this affected overseas sales)
