I've promised on Instagram that I'll be sharing my experience with trying out the latest beauty trend - Korean skincare - and that's exactly what I'm doing today! Oh and by the way, I'd love for you to follow me on Instagram for daily moments and updates!
You'll find me at @iammiriammilitaru
I've been more than happy to test out the newest beauties from my latest go-to skincare brand, Minnavi. The reason I was excited to test out their products was first of all because of the huge beauty trend that conquered the beauty trend list the last couple of months. I don't know about you, but I've been seeing beauty lovers falling in love with Korean skincare and more Korean skincare brands making their debut both online and offline.
Because of all of the buzz, I've been wanting to find out what that's all about for myself by learning more and testing out the concept!
Luckily for me, I got the chance to do just that, in collaboration with Minnavi!
Minnavi’s goal is to improve the health of the skin because healthy skin means happiness and confidence. I absolutely love what Minnavi stands for, as I believe that’s the ultimate truth about skin. In addition, Minnavi products are created in collaboration with the top dermatologists in South Korea and contains effective and natural ingredients.
A dream come true for the skin, if you ask me!
The Toner, which is part of the Time Release Delivery Collection, has become my favorite part of my skincare routine. After I remove my makeup and wash my face, I apply one or two pumps of this essence-like toner onto my face and gently massage until is completely absorbed.
My skin feels soft and moisturized, not to mention how glowing and healthy it looks!
An amazing fact about this toner is that it contains coconut extract instead of purified water to hydrate the skin and retain the moisture in the skin.
Minnavi also came out with six different face oils, The Face Oil System, as an extra & luxurious touch to your skincare routine.
While all six oils are ah-mazing at moisturizing and general skin health, each oil focuses on a certain function (sensitivity, brightening, moisturizing, nourishing, vitality, and elasticity).
The oil blends are cold-pressed and from all natural (100%) high quality oils. They are vegan and cruelty free.
Does not contain any chemical and toxic ingredients.
As you can tell by the photos, I have the blue ( brightening ), the pink ( elasticity ) and the yellow one ( moisturizing ). All of them smell really nice, in addition of doing what they are supposed to be doing. You can choose the ones you'd like to include into your skincare routine and combine them together for a great and visible effect!
DIRECTIONS: After cleansing the skin and applying toner ( which is an optional step, but an essential one at the same time. Trust me, your skin will love you for not skipping the-toner-step), squeeze a few drops of the oil/oils and mix them into the palm of your hand.
Then apply evenly all over the face until the oils are being completely absorbed. You can use any combination of oils and amount - though, I'd recommend choosing the type of oils that can jump in and help you with your skin "problem/s", this way, you are also treating your skin complexion, as well as improving your skin health.
I'd also recommend adjusting the amount of oil you're applying based on the type of your skin. For instance, if you have really oily skin, I would suggest 1-2 drops, but if you have dry skin or living in dry conditions, you can apply up to 4 or 5 drops.
Alright, let's do a recap, shall we? Feel free to use any combination based on what functions you would like to focus on and make sure you're adjusting the amount you're applying based on the type of your skin.
Now I've learned and tested out the Korean skincare concept and do I love it? Oh boy and how much do I do! I'm extremely happy to have found Minnavi, a high-quality skincare brand featuring the Korean skincare trend at its best!
First of all, I'm impressed by how gorgeous the products look and feel! The packages are super cute and high-end looking which is always a bonus, at least for me! The thing I love the most about them though, is how efficiently they truly are! I find toners and especially oils being very hard to get absorbed by the skin, BUT not these. After only a few seconds, they are all absorbed into the skin, leaving my skin literally glowing and naturally highlighted!
Test them out yourself and you'll love them too! It's a promise!
