MISSBISH #NEEDS: Asian Beauty and Skincare Products
DateJune 3, 2017
MISSBISH’s global presence has opened the team up to experience some fairly interesting and innovative food, fashion, and fitness trends. Among those general categories, skincare has become a topic that we often find ourselves discussing during bi-weekly Slack chat meetings.
At the risk of sounding clichè, some of us on the team are pretty obsessed with Asian skincare and beauty. We’ve made these products a part of our daily skincare routine, and now we want to do you a solid by sharing our favorite Asian beauty and skincare #NEEDS with you.
I’m obsessed because… it is the best cleansing oil I’ve ever used. It effortlessly removes dirt and makeup with absolutely no residue leaving your skin clean without feeling dry or oily. A little goes a long way, and you don’t have to use cotton pads or Q-tips. Shu Uemura has a huge collection of cleansing oils, but the Anti/Oxi with moringa and green tea extracts is my favorite.

TonyMoly Intense Care Gold 24K Snail Hydro Gel Mask
I’m obsessed because… this has been my go-to mask for a few years. I use this once a week and right after a long-haul flight. If you have dehydrated skin, I highly recommend this mask — a lifesaver and a must-have in every bishes skincare routine.
I’m obsessed because… I can literally throw it on over my moisturizer and it makes me look like I had 24 hours of sleep. It’s also a great layer on top of foundation if you are going out!
I’m obsessed because… It’s super lightweight, won’t clog my pores, protects my skin, and smells amazing. I got a sample of this from a K-beauty store in Los Angeles and was skeptical. I loved it immediately when I tried it for the first time. The mineral-based formula also smoothes pores and acts like a great makeup primer.
I’m obsessed because… ever since I started using it it’s improved my skin texture so much. I feel like toners from skincare brands based in the US are often super drying. But this toner makes my skin smooth, soft, and hydrated, without any oiliness or weird residue. It’s an extra step in my skincare routine that I didn’t even know I needed, and now I can’t live without it.
I’m obsessed because… This is a multi-tasking product, working as both a toner and cleansing water. At night, I’ll use it to tone my face after cleansing. In the mornings when I’m rushed, I’ll skip using a face wash and wipe my face down with this instead. It gently exfoliates the skin, and is one of the very few toners out there that doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
