I wouldn't say I "can't live without it," but I like the Innisfree Jeju volcanic pore scrub.

BB Cream is really good. I never really wore foundation before, but I decided to try this BB cream everyone was talking about, and it really makes my skin look better. I personally use Etude House (saw it on eatyourkimchi.com ^^). I also like skin foods tomato jelly lip tint..it's more like a lip balm but leaves a pretty color on your lips

I second BB Cream. I've been using Missha's Perfect Cover one with SPF 42 for over 2 years now (every single day!)... I've finally reached the paleness of Korea's no.21 shade according to a saleslady. It's like concealer and foundation in one (it was first used by women to hide and heal plastic surgery scars) and it offers great sun protection. My skin has never been better. BUT you do have to spend some time wiping your face clean before bed.

Skin Food's Pineapple Hand Cream is a life saver during the dry winters.

Hey,
Just wondering if anyone has come across any organic or more naturally-based cosmetics.
I am interested in the BB cream because I heard a lot about it before I came to Korea, but I don't like to use products that have a lot of chemicals...anyone know of some special brands that are non-toxic/organic or at least have some natural origin ingredients?

BB cream is amazing! I have really fussy skin so I generally only use natural skin products or my skin isn't happy.  I buy everything from Skin Food and have had no problem with any of their products.  BB cream covers better than regular foundation!

Aaaah feel like an idiot, but what is BB cream :)

Skinfood's Black Sugar wash off mask is awesome (it's actually a facial scrub) and I love the little apple hand creams from Face Shop.

Face Shop has a large line of mostly natural products called "natural story," look for the beige and green bottles.

For natural based products I would try Innisfree. I am not too familar with the brand because I am new to Korea ,but what I have read they seem to be more natural, but I would not say organic. Hope this helps!

I've heard that Missha carries a BB cream that's darker something like shade 32 (?) , but I've never been able to find this in stores.  Has anyone bought this BB cream or have any suggestions where I could find a cream for darker complexions?

I am a big fan of Skinfood's nail varnish and eyeshadows.
My friend swears by their Beer Shampoo and Conditioner ( I haven't tried it yet but plan to as soon as I finish the bottles I have)
I would like to hear more about people's opinions on BB cream, which ones have they tried and which they would recommend.
I have really dry skin during winter so if anyone has any thing they can recommend for that I would be very thankful.
