Don't you just love that time of year when a bunch of new, exciting beauty products launch? I wanted to use today's The K-Beauty Podcast episode to discuss a number of these autumn K-beauty launches for 2019 with you guys and hopefully introduce you to a few goodies you may have otherwise overlooked. Especially in terms of Korean skincare, there is so much new stuff out right now or about to launch in the next weeks, all of it super interesting and potentially swoon-worthy. Not every product mentioned in this episode won me over completely, and I've got a thing or two to say about the pricing with one brand in particular, but all in all, my wish list definitely got longer after researching the latest autumn K-beauty launches for 2019.

Organic K-beauty has been a massive trend this year, and I myself have a deep love for organic skincare made in Korea. But, it's difficult sometimes to know which brand is and isn't "truly" organic. Fear not, dear listeners, for I shall help you wade through the confusing world of "organic" and "natural" skincare from Korea...Are you a fan of plant-based, cruelty-free and sustainably sourced beauty products? Well, then this episode is (hopefully!) for you! In my tireless quest to prove that Asian beauty is not just filled with animal-torturing, wasteful and "scarily exotic" brands, the focus for today's The K-Beauty Podcast episode is all on organic K-beauty brands because, yes, they DO absolutely exist. And - they are often highly innovative, aesthetically pleasing, and with a lot of heart and soul poured into their products.Remember to check out my blog for episode notes and links to all the products, brands and topics mentioned on this podcast episode: https://sugarpeachesloves.net/kbeauty-podcast-organic-k-beauty-korean-beautyFor questions, topic suggestions, collaboration and sponsorship interests - email me at sugarpeachesloves@gmail.comFollow me on Instagram for more K-beauty and skincare goodness: https://www.instagram.com/sugarpeachesloves/Follow the podcast Twitter account: @kbeautypodcastIf you like my content and wish to financially support me and my work, you can make a small donation here: https://ko-fi.com/ulrikeschererIntro and outro music: "Puzzle Pieces" by Lee Rosevere--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-kbeauty-podcast/message

This week's K-Beauty Podcast episode discusses 5 new and trending K-beauty ingredients that are truly omnipresent in 2019.

We are moving from discussing the past year to the present one, with all the forthcoming skincare gems that are on my Korean skincare wish list for 2019! Now, I can't really say that I feel hyper confident about actually being able to afford all of the products on my K-beauty wish list for 2019, but hey - a girl can dream, am I right? And, really, this is mostly about having fun fantasising what the new year will bring to my skincare shelf and talking about Asian beauty products that are currently on my radar as potential new superstars!Now, at the beginning of the episode, I got a little carried away ranting about "product review events" on Instagram - if you want to avoid this slight deviation from the actual episode topic, skip 3:01 - 15:34.Don't forget to check out my blog for episode notes and links to all the products, brands and topics mentioned on this podcast episode: https://sugarpeachesloves.net/podcast-korean-skincare-wish-list-2019For questions, topic suggestions, collaboration and sponsorship interests - email me at sugarpeachesloves@gmail.comFollow me on Instagram for more K-beauty and skincare goodness: https://www.instagram.com/sugarpeachesloves/Follow the podcast Twitter account: @kbeautypodcastIf you like my content and wish to financially support me and my work, you can make a small donation here: https://ko-fi.com/ulrikeschererIntro and outro music: "Puzzle Pieces" by Lee Rosevere--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-kbeauty-podcast/message

Can we trust K-beauty reviews, or are all Korean beauty bloggers automatically dishonest as soon as they accept "free stuff"? I have noticed a lot of distrust in the Asian skincare community lately, and so I feel it is time to discuss the "elephant in the room" of blogging as a business and whether or not we can actually trust the opinions of K-beauty influencers anymore in today's The K-Beauty Podcast!Check out my blog for episode notes and links to all the products, articles, reviews and topics mentioned on this podcast episode: https://sugarpeachesloves.net/the-k-beauty-podcast-can-we-trust-k-beauty-reviewsFor questions, topic suggestions, collaboration interests - email me at sugarpeachesloves@gmail.comFollow me on Instagram for more K-beauty goodness: https://www.instagram.com/sugarpeachesloves/If you like my content and wish to support me and my work, you can buy me a "virtual coffee" at Ko-Fi: https://ko-fi.com/ulrikeschererIntro and outro music: "Puzzle Pieces" by Lee Rosevere--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-kbeauty-podcast/message

Today's episode focuses on the "J-beauty vs. K-beauty" debate, which seems to be heating up in 2018. I will discuss why painting Korean beauty as a somehow inferior, less mature type of skin care when compared to the "sophisticated" and "pure" skin care that Japan has to offer is beyond problematic!Check out my blog for episode notes and links to all the products, articles, reviews and topics mentioned on this podcast episode: http://sugarpeachesloves.net/k-beauty-podcast-j-beauty-vs-k-beautyFor questions, topic suggestions, collaboration interests email me at sugarpeachesloves@gmail.comFollow me on Instagram for more K-beauty goodness: https://www.instagram.com/sugarpeachesloves/ If you like my content and wish to support me and my work, you can buy me a "virtual coffee" at Ko-Fi: https://ko-fi.com/ulrikeschererIntro and outro music: "Puzzle Pieces" by Lee Rosevere--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-kbeauty-podcast/message

Polluaging is SUCH a "buzzy" topic at the moment - it keeps popping up on my social media feeds! Find out what is behind this slightly tongue-twisty term and why anti pollution skincare is not just a silly marketing ploy meant to sell you products, but an actual, real skin concern that will become even bigger in the future, thanks to the growing, global challenges of urban living.Check out my blog for episode notes and links to all the products, articles, reviews and topics mentioned on this podcast episode: http://sugarpeachesloves.net/the-k-beauty-podcast-polluaging-korean-skincare-pollutionFor questions, topic suggestions, collaboration interests email me at sugarpeachesloves@gmail.comIf you like my content and wish to support me and my work, you can buy me a "virtual coffee" at Ko-Fi: https://ko-fi.com/ulrikeschererFollow me on Instagram for more K-beauty goodness: https://www.instagram.com/sugarpeachesloves/Intro and outro music: "Puzzle Pieces" by Lee Rosevere--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-kbeauty-podcast/message
It's time for another episode of The K-Beauty Podcast, and today is all about K-beauty ingredients!

K-beauty and self-care go together like sheet masks and pampering! Self-care is all the rage at the moment, and often misunderstood both by critics and proponents of the "wellness" marketing machine. For me, self-care has often been about pure survival in a world filled with more and more anxiety-inducing incidences. So, I felt that this would be a fitting topic right for The K-Beauty Podcast right after Valentine's Day, in case some of you still feel a bit raw and emotional. I'll talk a little bit about the current self-care "craze" and how it's often misinterpreted as indulgent, shallow and self-centred.Skincare is getting such a bad rep at the moment, so I wanted to say my piece regarding this. And, of course, I will also discuss why Korean beauty is so well-suited for self-care and self-soothing, and give some advice on how to support your self-care journey with Korean and Asian beauty products and rituals. DISCLAIMER: Topics of mental illness will be mentioned throughout this episode, mainly depression, so double-check if that is ok for you!Check out my blog for episode notes, and links to all the products, articles, reviews and topics mentioned on this podcast episode: http://sugarpeachesloves.net/the-k-beauty-podcast-4-self-care-with-k-beautyFor questions, topic suggestions, collaboration interests email me at sugarpeachesloves@gmail.com Follow me on Instagram for more K-beauty goodness: https://www.instagram.com/sugarpeachesloves/If you like my content and wish to support me and my work, you can buy me a "virtual coffee" at Ko-Fi: https://ko-fi.com/ulrikeschererIntro and outro music: "Puzzle Pieces" by Lee Rosevere--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-kbeauty-podcast/message
