To mark the launch of their Canadian Instagram account, luxury Korean beauty brand AmorePacific and Beautygeeks are stoked to offer the chance to win one of two skincare gift sets worth $160 CAD! (Apologies to our international friends – logistics restrict the giveaway to Canada.)
A little AmorePacific background: the skincare-and-makeup company sparked the cushion foundation frenzy with a brand called IOPE, one of more than 30 it owns (including Laneige, Innisfree and French fragrance house Annick Goutal). And in 2015, Dior partnered with them to develop the Dior cushion foundations.
AmorePacific skincare spins on antioxidant-rich green tea (sourced from their own fields on Jeju Island in South Korea), bamboo sap and Korean red ginseng. Before you get distracted by the ginseng image – no reason 😏 – here's a key point: AmorePacific substitutes bamboo sap instead of water in their formulations. The theory is that water dilutes without adding any benefits besides moisture, whereas bamboo sap offers more intensive hydration via amino acids, minerals and moisture-binding sugars.
The AmorePacific Green Tea Me Gorgeous gift set consists of the following items, three of the brand's top sellers:
- Treatment Enzyme Peel (20g)
- The Essential Creme Fluid (90ml – full size)
- Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System (30ml)
Out of these, so far I've tried only the AmorePacific Treatment Enzyme Peel, a powdered exfoliant that reminds me of Dermalogica's pricey Daily Microfoliant (that I adore because it's so gentle yet so effective). Treatment Enzyme Peel is only slightly less expensive than Daily Microfoliant, but similar in texture, gentleness and immediate smoothing effect. I haven't used it enough to be able to give you a proper review just yet, but I like it enough that I'm happy to be able to give some away in this set. (I swear the rhyme was an accident.)
