Calling all beauty mavens! If there’s one country that is leading the way with innovative, quirky and pioneering products in the world of cosmetics and skincare right now then we have to point our finger firmly at Korea.
Scour Instagram to get sheet mask envy, listen to whispers of eye liners that can withstand any humidity and get curious as to how charcoal can help you cheat your way to gorgeous skin; the Koreans have piqued our interest and now we want in on their secrets!
In a recent survey conducted by GlamBox a whopping 95% of participants claimed to have an interest in Korean beauty products, with nearly 80% of those who tried Korean beauty products opting to try the Korean skincare products - proof that not only does this trend already have a fan base, but that it’s popularity is snowballing.
GlamBox takes pride in keeping its finger firmly on the pulse of beauty, which is why they have decided to dedicate their September Box purely on the Korean beauty phenomenon. The box will launch at an exclusive preview event on the 30th August at Ossiano, Atlantis, The Palm; an award winning seafood restaurant boasting awe-inspiring views of the world-famous Ambassador Lagoon, home to over 65,000 marine species. The box will be packed with fabulous products that will take up permanent residency in your make-up bag.
