So the first thing you think about when it comes to ShopandBoxing items from South Korea? Rather likely that beauty products pops up in your mind if you’re a girly girl who loves indulging in makeup. But today, we give you an insider’s perspective on what the top 10 must-buy items from Korea are, covering a range of beauty, lifestyle and food products that we all could use in our lives.
Our very own Boxer Jess (who’s a lover of local Korean stationery and the cutest stuffed animals) shows us her regular shopping bag that she always stocks her home with, and you’d never guess what’s the last item on her list!
“This is my longest using Korean product. Whenever a friend visits Korea, this sunblock will be on their “please-help-me-buy-list”. I’ve been using this sunblock daily since 2012!”
“With the endless sleeping packs/mask out there, Laneige is one that I always go back to. I personally think that this type of masks works better than regular face mask sheets, and the best part is that there’s no waiting time. Put on and snooze away!
“I was skeptical at first but once I tried it, I can see why people love it. If you are not into long term brow commitments such as eyebrow embroidery and the like, this temporary eyebrow tattoo can last for days and you don’t even need to touch up with a brow pencil. It’s fantastic!”
“I have really dry skin (no thanks to winters here) and this is the latest edition to my constantly-evolving moisturising routine. I love the feeling upon application – you can literally feel that instant blanket of moisture on your skin! Yes, it’s worth Belif-ing *I couldn’t help it*.”
“I was looking for a compact blusher brush for my daily makeup bag that is easy to bring around, and this fluffy kabuki brush fits the bill. Plus it comes with its own case to keep it clean and pristine so you won’t have to worry about it catching dust or bacteria from your bag.”
“DIY-manicures at home is huge in Korea and Modi Nails is a lot like an affordable O.P.I of Korea with an extensive range of nails product that works wonders. You can get professionally-done looking nails in seconds with these fun nail decals.”
“I bought this red Lock&Lock vacuum bottle 3 years ago when I just moved to Korea and it still is keeping my drinks hot/cold accordingly. Even if my drink is iced, the ice doesn’t melt for hours! Don’t bother with other brands, Lock&Lock is pretty much the one, and it comes in with various sizes and colours too. Great for picnics, work and daily use.”
“If you are a green tea fan, you would want to spread this on literally everything edible and gobble it up soon after! Don’t worry as it isn’t overwhelmingly sweet or cloying, and its green tea taste balances perfectly with a slight milky undernote.”
“It’s not everyday that you can bring along a packet of yummy chestnuts in your handbag. But with these healthy organic chestnuts you can chuck it in your bag and snack all-year round without feeling guilty.”
“This is probably the most expensive rice cooker I’ve owned so far, but the best thing about this (or just Korean rice cookers in general) is the quick cook option that allows you to cook your rice within 15 minutes. Cucken is one of the leading brands in Korea if you want to consider a really great rice cooker that can last you a while.”
