You know it’s definitely a good one when you’re back in your home country but still reliving your vacation moments on Instagram! It was a great trip to Seoul two weeks back and it was an eye-opener for me! I saw so many beauty products in the recent Made in Korea (MIK) 2017 Beauty Conference, from exciting makeup to innovative skincare products but out of so many I’ve tried and tested, [The Lotus] is one interesting brand that I would like to share with you about!
When we think of lotus, we typically associate the white or pink blooms with religious and cultural activities. Well, do you know that the beautiful lotus has got lots of skin-loving benefits?
One of Jeju Island’s most treasured local brand is [The Lotus], whose main ingredient in its skincare products is pure, natural white lotus leaf extract harvested from a pond at a legendary Buddhist temple, the Beophwa Temple. The temple is well known for its thousand years of history, and it’s said that the waters are very clear and pure, which encourages the thriving of the white lotus.
[The Lotus] skin care products are manufactured in Jeju Island, also known as the Hawaii of South Korea. With products that aim to whiten, brighten and counteract effects of aging, [The Lotus] has gained popularity not only in South Korea, but also globally, especially the United States of America.
The brand established its Lotus Leaf Antioxidant Project that aims to remove free oxygen radicals by utilising antioxidant activity of lotus leaves in all its products. The skincare range also contains water-soluble Vitamin B3 and Adenosine to prevent melanin from forming while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What’s also unique and special about [The Lotus] is the packaging! Each of the products come with a gorgeous packaging which is illustrated by the island’s very own artist, Kang Myung Soon, who only drew lotus flowers for over 20 years.
My absolute favourite from the brand has got to be its Lotus Leaf Mist Set, which contains the Lotus Leaf & Lemon Mist and the Lotus Leaf & Camellia Mist. These 2 mists are made with lotus leaf extract and hyperactive hydrogen-dissolved water that have strong antioxidant effects which eliminate the destruction of collagen and removes the active oxygen energy that creates brown spots and blemishes. The mists also smell super rejuvenating, which is great for a midday skin refresh!
From toners to serums and moisturisers, you can have an entire skincare routine with [The Lotus]. I’m definitely diving in to incorporate some of the skincare products into my routine soon.
