New Korean Skincare Brand: Hello Glow

To those who've been following me, you probably know that I'm a big skincare junkie and I have great bias to Korean brands. Majority of Korean brands use natural, safe, and harsh-free ingredients to help achieve our skin goals. Glad to discover a new player in the market called Hello Glow, with sets for every skin concern.

Hello Glow is made in Korea and has a complete line of affordable skin care products that are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and SLS-free. 

Available on Shopee

As you may know, it’s so hard to get sick these days. We’ll need all sorts of protection, including one against dengue, and Hello Glow’s Citronella 4-in-1 Body Lotion can help shoo away annoying mosquitos. 

This product can moisturize, reverse visible signs of aging, and provide a cooling yet gentle effect on skin. It's formulated with Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Peppermint, Vitamin C, and Citric Acid. You’ll get all these benefits while shielding yourself from dengue.
