Thanks to a community I read here on DW*, I have learned there's a whole area of K-beauty products that I was oblivious to.

Gold. As in actual gold, the metal, included in sheet masks, facial cremes, primers, and toners.

Now, I will admit, the wacky skin mask sheets are like catnip to me, which is why I own something called SNAIL BEE ESSENCE. (To be fair, my skin really likes that mask, but still. SNAIL BEE ESSENCE.) But gold! There is something so deliriously ridiculous and over-the-top about smearing gold on your face that I'm completely charmed by the idea.

Plus, as an added bonus, the mangled translation of product text is something to behold. How can you not want a cosmetic product with sell text like It's one of the masks that could make my face super soft inside out! You can feel the softness just by pressing into your cheeks and it gives that "boing boing" effect, loosely translated to "bouncy bouncy".

BOING BOING. BOUNCY BOUNCY. Sure, let's apply those adjectives to skin!

*This will possibly out me to other people on that anon community, but I think I already know the (two?) people who read my DW and that comm.

I saw a poster for that when Mickey and I were at Olympus a couple of weeks ago. I'm dubious -- it just looks like a one-way trip to heavy metal poisoning to me.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, I'm a very occasional reader and even more occasional commenter. I mostly say something when there's a problem with the search engine, because my wife created it, and she sometimes asks me to respond on her behalf.

:D Thank you. We're both glad you like it. And you can always feel free to PM me with any feedback you have for it. It is an eternal work in progress.

Someday they'll find out just how freaky and suggestive their translation is. I hope that day is a long time from now.
