Kicho Kicho ya ya dada – Kicho Natural Mineral Water Foaming Cleanser

The two lovely girls Sue & Hera from reached out to BeautyandtheCat to test their new products. I’m always in the mood to disco-fur some sites and KBeauty. Once upon a time, even peachandlily was obscure, right?

So they sent us this, behold:

Kicho Natural Mineral Foaming Cleanser

This is a new brand, and according to the excerpt from the site:

The philosophy of Kicho is to wholeheartedly embrace the order of nature. Kicho is dedicated to bringing back the basics of skincare, combining ancient arts with modern research.

The Yeon and the Restless -The Yeon Lotus Root 365 Moisture Capsule Essence

During one of those ‘daze-of-my-life’ lazy summer days I moseyed on to my favorite tiny cosmetic store in Chinatown, OO35mm and WHOA there was another K-Beauty store right next to it that just opened! This store was called The Yeon and it was new to me! As the world turns I can’t believe I have been buried in work and missing this new shop.

The store was beautifully set up, with white tiles and shiny shelves lined with mysterious products in candy-like packaging. However I’m wary of Asian cosmetics with no English ingredients that cause my 1001 allergies to flare up. After a LOOOOOONG 45-minute dawdle and elimination of everything without an English ingredient label, I picked this beauty up for $37. It promised natural ingredients and lots of herbal/floral/calming natural-sounding extracts:
