Aniqa Korean Skincare - S2J

Hi everyone!

You might remember that I’ve been experimenting with several brands of Korean skincare products from Aniqa – an online store based in Australia, that specialises in popular/cult Korean beauty products.

Well I’ve recently fallen in love with this new brand called S2J.

Their products are a standout for me because they are simple, good quality, and I’ve had good results.

The brand offers no frills, no magical claims… just high quality skincare that works how they are supposed to!

There are only 5 products in the S2J women’s skincare range, so it’s super easy to follow their beauty regime.

This is the S2J Ultra Vitamins Facial Treatment Cleansing Foam, however I have the travel size pack ($9) because I just wanted to try it and I was doing a bit of travelling at the time.

Generally I prefer foaming cleansers to cleansing creams, because, after I take off my makeup with makeup remover (which is quite oily), I like to give my skin a really good clean after that.

The consistency of the cleansing foam is soft, smooth and creamy. It cleans really well and is gentle on my skin.

It doesn’t have a strong smell. It’s just lovely and light.

Unlike most cleansing foams, this one doesn’t leave me with that dry, tight feeling on my cheeks afterwards. I really like it!

This is my other favourite product – the S2J Ultra Collagen Moisturizing Essence.

It is absolutely lovely on my skin. It absorbs SO well and leaves my skin feeling super hydrated, without the greasy shine.

I like the pump pack because I don’t like sticking my fingers into pots of cream and getting the cream stuck under my nails.

Korean Skincare S2J

The range was developed by celebrated Korean makeup artist,  Seo Sujin.

With 20 years of experience in the makeup industry, she has been described as Korea’s “Queen of Beauty” and leading the way as one of Korea’s first Hallyu makeup artists. Hallyu, or the Korean Wave, refers to the rising global popularity of South Korean culture, beginning in the late 1990s.

S2J stands for its philosphy of Smart, Science and Jeune (French for “young”) but I also think it stands for her name :)

Her products seem to have a kind of cult following,

I’ve have been thoroughly enjoying my journey into looking after my skin and I love discovering all these new products!
