Daiso is a shopper’s paradise.
Daiso is a shopper’s paradise. You’ll find stores all over in Korea in areas like Hongdae, Myeongdong, Sinsa-dong and Coex Mall. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the store, it sells items for your home, bathroom, crafts, pets, makeup, hair…you name it!
Though it is originally a Japanese chain, Daiso Korea is no longer part of Daiso Japan due to political reasons and sells products completely different from them.
The prices range from 1,000 to 5,000 KRW so it’s the best place to stock up on necessities you may (or may not) need! I always find myself walking out with a lot more than I originally planned to buy because everything’s so inexpensive!
Today’s post is going to focus on their beauty products since that’s what I have a passion for! If you’re a fellow addict like me, these items are an absolute must in your collection!
1. Blending Puff: 2,000 KRW
This product was swept off the shelves the minute it was stocked when it first came out. It’s known in Korea as the “poop sponge” and went viral for its ability to provide a flawless makeup application with a glowy, dewy finish.
Simply wet the sponge until it’s completely saturated and squeeze out the excess water, which will double its size. Then bounce it along the skin with your foundation, blush or bb cream for an airbrushed finish. No more cakey or thick makeup!
You can even buy this adorable holder to store your sponge for 1,000 KRW.
2. Professional Powder Brush: 3,000 KRW
You may be skeptical since it’s so cheap, but this brush proves that you don’t need to shell out big bucks for high-quality brushes!
A lot of cheap brushes from drugstores or dollar stores that I’ve tried in the past have been super scratchy and shed like crazy, but this professional powder brush is amazing!
The bristles are insanely soft and it doesn’t shed no matter how many times I wash it. The best part is that I can easily buy another one even if I lose it since it’s so affordable!
3. Pore Cleansing Brush: 5,000 KRW
If you struggle with large pores, blackheads or dry skin, this item is a must-add to your skincare routine.
Pore cleansing brushes deeply cleanse the pores, helping to reduce the appearance of them and remove dead skin and blackheads that can easily still remain in the skin even after cleansing.
Though many stores sell them, Daiso’s one is much cheaper but of the same, if not better quality!
4. Shampoo Brush: 1,000 KRW
I’ve been using a shampoo brush for over 2 years now and let me tell you, it really makes a huge difference!
This bad boy helps detangle my bleached and damaged hair, soothes the scalp, evenly distributes the shampoo and helps improve overall hair health!
Simply massage the scalp in circular motions after lathering the hair to stimulate microcirculation, which is essential for healthy hair. If you have an itchy scalp, this will help with that!
5. Brush Cleaning Pad: 3,200 KRW
If you love makeup, you’ll know how much of a chore cleaning your brushes may be. It’s got to be done, though, and this tool makes the task easier and more fun! All you need to do is add water and cleaner (shampoo or facial cleanser does the trick) and swirl the brushes on the pad to remove all the makeup residue on them! Voila, squeaky clean brushes! You can even slide it onto your finger like a ring for comfort.
6. Mascara Guard: 1,200 KRW
Say goodbye to messy mascara smudges and clumpy lashes with this innovative mascara guard! This nifty tool isolates your lashline, protecting your freshly applied eye makeup from smudges and allowing you to grab onto every single lash as you apply mascara. It has shields for both the top and bottom lashes as well as a comb to get rid of any clumps for the perfect finish.
7. Manicure Holder Ring: 3,900 KRW
This is a ring made out of silicon that holds your bottle of nail polish securely so you can comfortably do your nails! It also helps to prevent instances where you accidently knock over your bottle of nail polish, making a mess everywhere. No worries even if you turn it upside down either as it won’t fall out!
8. Metal Eyelash Tweezer: 1,700 KRW
Eyelashes can make your eyes look bigger and more inviting, but unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with long, luxurious lashes.
Applying them can be a difficult task especially for beginners, but this tool will make it a little easier. The center is curved for an easy grip, and all you have to do is grab the lashes by the center and line them up on your lashline. Then use the tip of the tweezers to gently press and secure them in place!
9. Silicon Face Mask: 2,000 KRW
At first glance, it may just look like a regular sheet mask. Well, prepare to be amazed because it’s much more than that.
With regular sheet masks, they tend to just sit on top of the skin which means it’s hard to move around a lot since the mask would come off.
This mask is one that you wear on top of your sheet mask to hold it in place so you can actively do other things as you wait instead of just sitting or lying around. It even has loops to put around your ears so you can even jump around and your mask won’t fall off!
10. Ponytail Hair Pack: 1,000 KRW
If you’ve got dry and damaged hair that’s in desperate need of some tender loving care, stock up on this product!
We all know that moisture is the key to maintaining smooth, glossy locks and hair treatments are the best for helping with that.
This hair treatment is different to other ones in that you don’t need to wash it out afterward, making it perfect to use on the go or right before you leave the house!
Simply wrap your hair in a ponytail and put it into the pack which resembles a pouch, leave it in for 15 to 30 minutes and you will notice your hair is smooth and soft. Every day will be a good hair day!
