For make-up and skin-care junkies, there are many incredible quality products here. Not only are they quality, there are some with the prettiest packaging too. (Hint: Bisous’ rainbow cluster crystal shimmer highlight – now there’s a mouthful of words…)
Without further ado, read on to find out more about the 11 brands we’ve personally picked out!
PS: If you do make it down to Eve and Boy, you will realise that there’s so much more than just these 11 brands!
One of the first things you may recognise Cathydoll for, are the blackhead masks sold in all 7-11 stores for a mere 20 Baht. (It really grips onto the nasty dirt and blackheads stuck in your pores and cleans your skin thoroughly.)
This Korean brand also offers a wide range of cosmetics from primers to mascaras, and I personally swear by their waterproof, smudgeproof eyeliners – Baby Cat Eyeliner. I’ve used this loyally for 2 years now and it has never smudged once. I’ve tried a few of the mascaras too, and they’re not too shabby!
I’m sure you’ve seen those blackhead mask videos that are making their way around online. This honey chamomile mask, as soothing as it sounds, has also been described by a reviewer online as the most evil mask she’s ever used.
While it can literally be a pain to peel off, it really works. If you peel this mask off slowly while looking in the mirror, you can actually see your blackheads and whiteheads popping right out of your skin just like in those blackhead mask videos!
For reference, here are the top 3 blackhead masks in our opinion, according to the level of pain and effectiveness. 1. Country and Stream Honey Peel-off Pack Pain Level: ★★★★☆ Effectiveness: ★★★★★ 2. Cathy Doll Black Heads Cleansing White Clay Mask Pain Level: ★★★☆☆ Effectiveness: ★★★★☆ 3. Kose Clear Whitening Mask Pain Level: ★★★☆☆ Effectiveness: ★★★☆☆
3. Bulgarian rose water toner – Alteya Organics
Rose water toner sprays are great for 4 reasons. 1. It helps to moisturise your skin, maintain your skin’s pH balance, fight acne and eczema 2. It keeps you feeling refreshed while its antioxidant properties helps to revitalise aging skin and keep fine lines and wrinkles away. 3. It tones your skin while its anti-bacterial properties helps to heal scars and wounds. 4. It smells really good!
If you love a good rose water toner, but always moan about how expensive the quality ones can be…
You need to try Alteya Organics’ Organic Bulgarian Rose Water! For starters,we bought it and loved it – and one of has has super sensitive skin, so you know it’s good and gentle enough for every skin type. (Also, a quick google will show that this is one of the recommended brands on skincare articles.)
4. Love a good lip tint? – Peripera
Another Korean brand, Peripera stands out at first sight thanks to the quirky packaging.
What we really liked about this brand, is the array of lip tints available! It has a pretty good staying power, and glides on well. The lip tints come in different packaging from what looks like milk/fruit juice cartons, to dropper bottles!
Apart from lip tints, Peripera has an assortment of beauty products ranging from blushers, to mascaras and more.
5. Sailormoon makeup?! – Creer Beaute
Anyone who got started with makeup thanks to Michelle Phan’s oldschool RiceBunny tutorials here? This Sailormoon-themed make-up is something she’s been loving for awhile, and now you can get your hands on it too.
To be fair, it can be quite pricey for a supposedly simple product – however, the packaging more than makes up for it!
Imagine making make-up magic happen with your Sailormoon lip cream or eyeliner wand, or putting on blush straight out of the magical Sailormoon cup. With ‘magical’ make-up like that, you’re sure to go waltzing out of the house feeling extra special.
6. Everyday lip crayons! – Golden Rose
What we’ve found and liked about this Thai brand are it’s lip crayons! It’s pretty similar to Revlon’s Balm Stains, but at a tad lower cost. There are really nice shades ranging from nudes to reds, so you can be sure to find one that matches your complexion.
Honestly a great brand for everyday make-up for a fresh barely there make-up look!
7. Ooooh, a very yummy rose perfume – Cute Press
Okay, to come clean with you, one thing we liked about Cute Press was the Juliet Rose EDT perfume. We were surprised at the quality of this perfume even though it only cost 300 Baht!
It’s slightly sweeter than Givenchy’s Very Irresistible L’Eau En Rose EDT Spray, but smells very similar!
If you don’t need a powerful EDP (Eau de Parfum) that lasts all day, and only need something simple but nice for a short time out – Cute Press is a great alternative for affordable daily perfume, and comes with other scents too!
PS: They also have a bunch of Disney-themed make-up like Alice-in-Wonderland and The Little Mermaid lip balms, and Frozen-themed UV Protection sunblock and more.
8. In the market for a new highlighter? – Bisous
Take one look at Bisous, and you’ll fall in love with the dainty, classy packaging. A standout product in particular are its compact foundations and highlight that come in packaging designed to look like flowers or a seashell.
If you have fair skin, the compact foundations will be perfect. If you have tan skin or darker skin, we’d recommend going for the Rainbow Cluster Crystal Shimmer Highlight! It’s a gorgeous and pretty subtle shimmer that’ll add just the right amount glow to your everyday.
9. Always on the look out for organic products – Mad Hippie
If you’re a ‘mad hippie’ on a constant lookout for all things organic, well… Mad Hippie is where you’ll want to look! (BuzzFeed has reviewed and approved Mad Hippie too, FYI.)
Eye Cream, Exfoliating Serum, Face Cream, Vitamin A Serum, and more – Mad Hippie is a good option to look into if you’re in the market for these products!
10. It’s a whimsical kinda thing – Flawless Me
If you like brands for their packaging, you might be interested to know about Flawless Me, a really cute brand with whimsical packaging.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they’re stocking products like ‘Pull-it-Up Vitamin Loose Powder’, and ‘Aqua Splash Aloe Vera Moisturising Gel’. Feel free to look at the range of products available, there’s quite a variety, and the best part? It’s affordable and works!
11. The prettiest masks of all, maybe one of the best too? – Water Angel
You won’t be faulted for thinking that you’re in Taiwan (famous for their plethora of face masks), when you see this cool line of masks from Taiwan!
While the best-selling mask in Taiwan (Bihada Ichizoku) is available here, Water Angel masks are almost as good as those too! Choose one according to your needs, whether its the anti-aging unicorn mask (Horse Oil Mask) or anything else.
All we know is that these masks are great for stocking up on – for those days back home when you feel like doing a mask that’s a little more luxurious!
