Beauty disruptor Beauty Pie has not only made waves since it launched in 2016 but it continues to churn out great products. After getting my skin analysed at Lion/ne, a bespoke analysis brand based in London, I started focusing on fixing my skin barrier. Since re-hauling my regime, adding anti-oxidants and starting on the east-meets-west route with Beauty Pie’s Jeju range, my complexion has improved in big-time. In case you’re wondering, Jeju refers to a city in South Korea, famed for its natural wonders.
Jeju Daily Rehydration Mist+
Working in London has severely dried out my skin. The long commutes, polluted air and fast-paced lifestyle means a fast-track pass to fine lines. One of the reasons I love this face mist is that it adds boosts of hydration throughout the day, with a dose of hyaluronic acid and glycerin. A little goes a long way, one spritz is close to drenching your face! As for the ingredients, it focuses on variations of Jeju goodies: jori, blossom, scutellaria bicalensis root extract and koyamaki, naturally contain anti-pollution properties. My only criticism here is the abundance of fragrance added to the mist, which somewhat counteracts the barrier-protecting properties of this on-the-go spray.
Jeju Daily Multi-Phase Purifying Cleansing Milk
This cleansing milk is creamy, dreamy and all round fabulous. Since trialling the product, I genuinely can’t imagine my life without it. Like the others in the range, this is made from Jeju cherry blossoms, bamboo grass, licorice-root extract and meadowfoam seed oil (the last one is a form of fatty acid, helpful in hydrating your skin). The rich texture helps to melt off your make-up in seconds and makes the often tediuous step of cleansing so much easier. Pair it with Beauty Pie’s fun konjac cloths for the ultimate deep clean. What I noticed right away, is that the milk didn’t leave my face feeling tight, like previous cleansers have done. The only issue I had with my new favourite face wash is the pump design, which is not travel friendly in the least.
