Another year has passed and it’s time to share my favorite products reviewed in 2018 with you. It is always nice for me to look back on my posts that I wrote here on Berries in the Snow during the last year and think about the products that I really liked and used a lot! The products are mainly related to KBeauty, but I also included some brands that aren’t. If you tried any of the products yourself write a comment and let me know about your experience and if you share my thoughts or not. You can also check out last years post for my favorites in 2017 >>here<<.
Favorite Skincare 2018
The amount of KBeauty brands is vast and there are new brands to discover all the time. I was able to discover some new brands during 2018 and there were some products and brands that I enjoyed a lot. First of all, I tried my first product from the brand 107 Oneoseven. Since I discovered that I actually love to use mists I fell in love with the 107 Oneoseven Rose Vinegar Water. The 107 Oneoseven Rose Vinegar Water is a rose water based mist that contains the famous vinegar. It is the perfect combination to provide moisture to your face whenever needed. It can be used after cleansing as toner, for setting makeup or before using masks. It comes in a cute pink colored spraying bottle, that sprays a very fine mist. I have discovered that this mist has also a very calming effect on my skin, too. You can read my review >>here<< and get this product from Beautytap.com.
I was also introduced to the brand Erborian and I love their products. The BB creams are great and also their skincare is lovely. The Erborian Bamboo Moisturizing Matte-Effect Eye Contour Gel was one of the most memorizable products I reviewed during 2018. It helps to visibly reduce the signs of fatigue: fine dehydration lines, under-eye bags, and skin dryness. The matte finish helps to soften the appearance of under-eye bags. This eye gel was so lovely to use during the summer. It really had this cooling effect and thereby was perfect for refreshing your eyes and make you look less tired. Read my review >>here<<.
Another brand that I loved last year has been Purito. I love their good quality products and clear ingredients lists. Here are two products that I reviewed in 2018 and really loved (and already used up). The Purito Centella Green Level All In One Mild Pad and the Purito Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream. The Centella Pad is a mild daily exfoliator and super convenient to use. Using 10% Centella Asiatica Extract as a key ingredient, this rich extract contains Asiaticosides, Asiatic acid and Madecassic acid and acts as mild BHA (beta hydroxy acid). Read my review >>here<<.
The Purito Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream is a nourishing moisturizer enriched with 70% Sea Buckthorn Fruit extract, highly concentrated with vitamins, and therefore the perfect brightening care for making dark and dull skin revitalized. he Purito Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream has a mix between balm-type texture and gel texture. The color of the cream is light orange, and as I said before, it has a wonderful and very natural orange scent that reminds me of the moment you peel oranges. Read my review >>here<<.
Another brand that I discovered during 2018 is Bio:Végane. It’s not a KBeauty brand, but a great natural cosmetics brand that you find in Germany. I’m in love with their Bio:Végane Skinfood Organic Acai Cleansing Gel! What I love about the Bio:Végane Skinfood Organic Acai Cleansing Gel is first of all the gel-type formula and the fact that it is not drying for my dry skin type. It does produce a moderate amount of foam nonetheless, which is enough to have that feeling of a foam cleanser despite the gel type formula. The second point why I love this cleanser so much is definitely the scent! It is really addicting and so fresh and fruity. I’m almost done with my second bottle and I have stocked up on another one…I’m highly recommending this cleanser! Read my review >>here<<.
A brand that you all might have heard of and never has let me down is Klairs. I reviewed and used so many of their products already and still love using the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence has been released not long ago and I can definitely say that I’m addicted to it. It’s not often that one gets addicted to sunscreen but this one definitely won me over. The Klairs Soft Airy UC Essence comes with SPF50+ PA ++++ and is a lightweight daily sunscreen that protects the skin from UVA and UVB. It leaves no greasiness, nor a white cast. The broad spectrum sunscreen has a water-based gel-texture and comes in a (quite unusual) large tube. It’s my most-used sunscreen at the moment. Read my review >>here<<.
Last but not least for the skincare is the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Borabit Ampoule. It is directed towards anti-aging and brightening, using purple botanical ingredients like blueberries, aronia, beets, red cabbage, and purple carrots and combining these with lactic acid fermentation ingredients. It’s a powerful ampoule designed for nighttime use, making the skin smoother, firmer, revitalized, and stronger. This ampoule has been loved by many already but I never had the chance to use it until last year. What should I say, it convinced me, too! Read my review >>here<<.
Favorite Make-Up 2018
One of the makeup products that I used almost every day are the Bonnie Choice Eyebrow Pencils from Born Pretty Store. They are automatic eyebrow pencils that are waterproof and long-lasting. There are 6 different shades available and they have a very soft finish and are easy to use. The bullet has a triangular shape and makes it easy to draw your brows. I can really recommend these. Also, they are double-sided, with an eyebrow brush attached to the other side. Check out my review >>here<< and also have a look at Born Pretty Store here.
Then there are of course lip products that I loved last year a lot. One of these is the The Face Shop Gelato Tint. The Face Shop Gelato Tint is a creamy lip tint that comes in 6 different shades that come in ice cream shaped containers in pastel colors. The description says that these tints melt like soft ice cream on our lips with the melting mousse texture. This texture is so lovely. The tint is thick and vibrant in color and applies smoothly. Also, the ice cone shape is really detailed and looks like a high-quality product and not simply some cheap plastic piece. This was definitely a hit for me and brought me back to why I loved KBeauty in the first place. You can read my review >>here<<.
Another lip product that I enjoyed a lot is the MeloMELI Cotton Shot Lip Tint! I was able to test all their shades thanks to Beautytap and I enjoyed them a lot (and still enjoy them). The MeloMELI Cotton Shot Lip Tint is a cotton-type tint, with a matte finish, but creamy texture. It is long-lasting, not drying, and has vibrant color pay-off according to the description of the tints. Since it has a creamy texture, but a matte finish it can be used as tint, but also as blush. You can also apply them either very lightly for a natural tint, or more vibrant and opaque. I have to point out that they don’t feel drying on the lips AT ALL, despite their matte texture. You can read my review >>here<< and check out the product at Beautytap.com.
