When it comes to skincare, I’m not going to lie, I am a bit of a Korean skincare junkie. There is something about the cute packaging, the lofty claims and the affordable price points which keeps me wanting more. Until now I’ve scrolled aimlessly on Amazon whilst trying to find my newest obsessions, but now there’s a new spot for me to while away the hours – MurMura.co.uk – a carefully curated collection of the very best in Korean beauty. I was very kindly sent a handful of the website’s favourite products, and happily none were any I’d previously tried!
The first of the products I tore into was Back to Iceland’s Cleansing Water (from £4). It’s a brand I’ve heard a lot about, but never had an opportunity to try, so getting my hands on it was great fun! Super gentle on skin, it’s a formula packed full of soothing Iceland moss extract and botanicals, allowing it to effectively remove makeup, dirt and oil, leaving skin feeling clean, soft and refreshed. I use it after a foaming cleanser to make sure that my skin is completely clean before heading to bed.
Missha’s Brightening Eye Patch (£2) are perfect if you’ve had a busy weekend! Kept in the fridge and applied to freshly cleansed skin, these feel absolutely heavenly. Broccoli extract and hyaluronic acid hydrate the eye area, letting you fake a good night’s rest, and when applied from the fridge, the coolness also helps to combat puffiness. If you’re prepping for a big event, these are a must have!
Etude House’s Air Therapy (Green Tea) Mask (£2) is one of my favourite products. I’ve written before how much I love sheet masks, and I tend to use one a few times a week, and Etude House’s Green Tea version is perfect if you’re looking to calm and hydrate skin. I used mine after a session with my dermal roller, and the day after, my skin felt so soft and smooth, and was noticeably less red.
You can find all three goodies alongside a whole lot else at www.murmura.co.uk
