Minnavi Takes K-Beauty Up A Notch | Customizable Skincare

Minnavi Takes Korean Beauty Up A Notch | Customizable Skincare || The Glam Surge
I'm sure I've said this a hundred times before, but I'm going to say it again.. As a beauty blogger, I am so fortunate to discover new brands that I probably wouldn't of heard of if I wasn't one. The newest brand on my radar is Minnavi. First off, I just want to start off by saying that this is a K-Beauty brand. Did I catch your attention yet? (I know it's all the rage right now) If you haven't heard of them, well you're going to want to keep reading because the concept behind the brand is pretty darn amazing. 

So, a little about the brand..
Like I mentioned, they are a Korean skincare brand. Their main focus is to improve the health of your skin because the natural result of healthy skin is confidence and happiness. All their products are made in collaboration with the top dermatologists in South Korea. They strive to incorporate the best natural and effective ingredients. They have a few products on their website, but I'll be talking about two today: the Time Release Delivery Fluid* and their Ampoule Concentrates*.

Their Time Release Delivery Fluid is actually a 4-in-1 product. It's supposed to be a moisturizer, lotion, cream, and essence all in one. One of their key ingredients in there is Whitenol. Whitenol has the special ability to slowly penetrate deep into the skin throughout the day and also gives very strong skin lightening power. With that ingredient and many other patented ingredients, this is supposed to provide longer hydration, be moisturizing, and give whitening effects for the skin. Although they say 'whitening', they do not mean to make the skin whiter, but instead it's supposed to help with pigmentation, uneven skin tones, and spots to give a 'brighter' look. 

I've used this alone and also alongside the face oils. Both ways I like, but if I were to choose, I'd definitely choose to mix it with the face oils (but we'll talk about that in a bit). Alone, I find it to be really moisturizing that I can pretty much get away without piling on any other serums on. Sometimes after a long day of work, I'll even wash my face and only apply this right after and I'm good to go! After using it for a few weeks, I find my skin to be really hydrated despite it being cooler aka the time my skin gets drier. I've also found my skin to be more vibrant and the red spots I had from teenage acne isn't as red as it was. I'm definitely impressed.

Minnavi have 6 face oils, or 'Ampoule Concentrates', in their line up. Each oil focuses on a specific function. There are oils for brightening, elasticity, moisturizing, nourishing, sensitive, and vitality. These oil blends are cold-pressed and are made from 100% all natural high quality oils. There aren't any chemical and toxic ingredients added to these products. They're also vegan and cruelty-free. I received three out of the six ampoules: Brightening, Elasticity, and Moisturizing. Each face oil have a specific blend and if you head over to their website, you can read up on each to find out which oils would better suit your skin concerns. 

The way these products are supposed to work is by creating your own concoction to focus on what you want to improve with your skin. Minnavi's concept is customizable skincare and that's exactly what you get with these. Everyone's skin needs are different whether based on skin type, lifestyle, weather and so on. Sometimes your skin may need more moisture or more brightening, Minnavi's products is the perfect solution for this. All you need to do is mix a few drops of your choice of face oils with their Fluid and apply it like a normal moisturizer. It's completely up to you how much you want to use or what you want to use. It's safe to say, I'm thoroughly obsessed with this brand. 

Products marked with a (*) were sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own. 

What do you think about this concept? Are you into K-Beauty?
