Always on the lookout for new and exciting Korean skin care brands, I stumbled upon Besone recently and was immediately intrigued and drawn in by their brand story, ethics and products.
I reached out to them about trying some of their products and they kindly sent me some of them to try. I was so excited because they sounded so great and innovative too.
First, let me tell you a little about Besone.
Besone is actually take from ‘Be So Necessary to my life’ They believe in making affordable, quality, honest and healthy products and regularly get feedback from their customers, so they can provide the best products they can. They take into account not only who will use their products but how and why they will be used too. Using only the best ingredients to maximise the function on the their products.
They have a really great range of skin care products, along with some base make up products and a hair care product. I’m going to quickly go over their range of products that they have available on their online store. I will then go into greater detail about the products that they sent me afterwards. (click images to enlarge them)
Their first range of skin care products is the Skin & Time Saving Range. This consists of products that will give you all the benefits of a lengthy skin care routine but cut down on the time needed to complete it.
They have 3 products in this time-saving range. A Skin & Time Saving First Essence, Sleeping Pack and Moisture Cream.
These 3 products have many beneficial herbal and fermented ingredients to produce multi purposed, time-saving skin care.
They also have a Pore & Tightening Range consisting of a First Essence, Fresh Cream and Sleeping Pack. Their herbal and fermented ingredients will help tighten enlarged pores, whilst their patented ingredient in their Fresh Cream will control sebum secretion and help improve acne.
There are also 4 other creams that are available too.
A Cloud 02 Cream, Golden Luminous Premium Cream, Antioxidant Capsule Cream and Peach à Milk Tone Up Cream. I was really interested in all of these creams because of how they work and what they do but more on that later on.
With a selection of 4 varieties of sheet masks, including one 3D clay mask, a p.h 5.5 Balancing Mist, Flower Essence Skein Foam Cleanser, Flower Essence Cleansing Oil and their Innocence Deep Clean Mask, Besone have got all areas of cleansing covered.
Also available are their Peach à Milk base make up products and their Hair Dry Booster, which cuts down hair drying time in half.
Now, onto the bit I know you want to see. The products that Besone sent me to try out.
First off, I have to say that it arrived very quickly by DHL, and I was just expecting an ordinary cardboard box, with some products & packaging. That is not what I got.
This is what I got. A gorgeous blue box, tied with a lovely gold ribbon and inside, wow, just wow. I knew the products I was receiving before hand but I was not expecting all their masks. Thank you so much Besone for being so generous and kind as to send me such a great selection of your products to try out and review, and also thank you for such gorgeous wrapping. It felt like Christmas!
As you can see, there was a really good selection of their products. I was so excited to receive these. They also included some of their Dr.Forhair Folligen Easy Swabs too.
Here is s list of everything that Besone sent to me:
- Antioxidant Capsule Cream
- Cloud 02 Cream
- Peach à Milk Tone Up Cream
- Peach à Milk Mesh Sun SPF 50+/PA+++
- Dr.Forhair Folligen Easy Swabs
- Real Rose Botanical Mask (Box of 5)

It’s always great to try out new sheet masks and I am really looking forward to trying these. I have already tried the Real Solid Pink Clay Mask and I really liked that.
You can read my thoughts on it over on my Instagram.

Last night I tried the Real Solid Pink Clay Mask by Besone. . . This mask was actually a real pleasure to use. . . First off it had a really pleasant smell, which is great news considering I was going to have to wear this mask for at least 40-50 minutes or until it was completely dry! . . The mask comes in 2 halves, top and bottom, with a protective transparent layer on either side. It was easy to apply to my face and there was a slight overlap. It fitted my face well and was able to easily cling to and adhere, with no slippage to the contours of my nose, jawline etc. . . It took around an hour for the mask to be completely dry but this was mostly due to the overlap areas taking that little bit longer. . . To remove, you pull from the bottom up, slowly removing it & making sure you support where the mask overlaps so it comes off in one piece. . . It feels like you are using a giant pore strip over your whole face but wasn't really painful. It was quite cathartic removing it. . . It definitely pulled off dead skin and impurities, especially on my nose. That was left dry & flaky afterwards but it did remove the majority of larger blackheads and lots of dead skin. . . I was surprised at how little clean up there was too; it really wasn't messy at all as you can see from the end pic. . . Overall I thought this mask was great, it possibly may have been a little too drying in certain areas for my sensitive dry skin, so I would probably only use this maybe once or twice a month HOWEVER afterwards my skin felt incredibly soft. It was really only my nose that suffered, but after being moisturised it was just fine. I didn't have any irritation or reaction from it either. . . Rating 10/10 I would definitely use this mask on a regular basis. . . . . . . #korean #koreanskincare #kbeauty #kskincare #koreanbeauty #abskincare #abcommunity #abblogger #instablogger #rasianbeauty #claymask #thatsdarling #myunicornlife #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight #nothingisordinary #abmlifeiscolorful #darlingmovement #thehappynow #pursuepretty #ABMlifeissweet #ABMhappylife #livethelittlethings #howyouglow #asianskincare #sheetmask #beauty
I will say, it is a really great clay mask and I loved that it wasn’t messy at all to clean up after like most clay masks. It was gentle to the skin and even though my nose was initially flaky afterwards, I now realise that it was just dead/dry skin that didn’t quite come lose. After I finished up my nightly skin care routine, my nose was bright, soft and very clean!
The Dr. Forhair Folligen Easy Swabs will be interesting to try out too. I’ve never used anything like these, so I can’t wait to see how they work. I’m sure we all have those time when our scalp gets itchy and its really distracting. Heat can cause it, when we’re sick and well, just about anything. These swabs are used to cool and soothe the scalp immediately and regular use will help keep the scalp clean, clear and healthy. You can find out more about these here.
With an abundance of herbal extracts this Peach à Milk Tone Up Cream is dual purpose as it can be used as a make up base in the day and a whitening cream at night. It has a really decadent scent of peaches and a very luxurious creamy texture, that absorbs into the skin effortlessly. It will help to tone up your skin and smooth out your complexion so you can wear this in the day with little or no make up.
This Cloud 02 Cream is one of the creams that really grabbed my interest. It’s an Oxygen Care Cream that contains soft cream that changes into a texture like a cloud, making the skin soft, healthy and supple. The cream is actually combined with oxygen bubbles and is so light and airy but you only need a little amount. Gently tap into the skin for absorption; as the oxygen bubbles pop they help to penetrate the beneficial ingredients deeper into the skin. It has a very subtle, light fresh scent and it also feels very fresh on the skin too. It’s hard to explain but it really does feel like a breath of fresh air on your skin when you apply it. I found it very hydrating and it left my skin very soft too.
Besones Antioxidant Capsule Cream was another innovative product that I was really interested in. You can see the tiny capsules that are throughout the cream. Those are tiny capsules of sea buckthorn oil, which are fantastic for anti-ageing, whilst the Acai Berry is a very powerful antioxidant. You can read more below in my Instagram post.

How gorgeous is this @humajor_ Besone Antioxidant Capsule Cream? 😊 . . This beautiful, vibrant purple cream is enriched with Acai Berry to give you radiant skin. . . If you look closely you can see that there are also tiny capsules of sea buckthorn oil throughout this cream too. These are for anti-ageing. The Acai Berry extract is rich in anthocyanin, which protect against cell damage and is a powerful antioxidant, and black food; giving your skin vitality and radiance. . . Not to mention this smells amazing! It sinks into the skin and leaves it feeling so soft and moisturised. . . My immediate fist impressions of this Antioxidant Capsule Cream is really great. It's light, non greasy. As you apply it to the skin you can feel the oil from the tiny capsules just burst and release the sea buckthorn oil. The combined oil and Acai Berry extract permeate the skin effortlessly. . . It feels lovely on the skin. Plus you really do not need much at all because it goes such a long way. My skin felt fresh and revitalised after use and definitely had a healthy glow. 😊 . . I will continue to use this and do a more thorough review on my blog when I've used it over a longer period. . . My initial thoughts are very positive though.😊 . . . . . . . . #korean #koreanskincare #kbeauty #kskincare #koreanbeauty #abskincare #abcommunity #abblogger #instablogger #rasianbeauty #thatsdarling #myunicornlife #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight #nothingisordinary #abmlifeiscolorful #darlingmovement #darlingweekend #thehappynow #pursuepretty #ABMlifeissweet #ABMhappylife #livethelittlethings #besone #antioxidants #howyouglow #bblogger
Last but by no means least, is the Besone Peach à Milk Mesh Sun SPF 50+/PA+++ Cushion. This is a new concept sunscreen that leaves no residue on the hands, it’s water-resistant UV protection and also sweat resistant.
You apply this after basic make up and you can reapply it throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated and radiant too. This is a great concept because I for one, hate applying sunscreen. I just find the whole thing annoying and messy. This cushion sunscreen makes the job a whole lot easier and is so easy to apply as and when you need a top up during the day. It’s just so convenient.
I loved what I have tried so far from the selection of products that Besone were good enough to send to me. I will continue to use them and also try out the other sheet masks and the Dr Forhair Folligen Easy Swabs too. I will post those on my blog as and when I review them.
Besone really have a great range of quality, innovative products that shows that they are invested in providing their customers with honest, quality products; just as they state they are. They are continuously looking for ways of improving and are coming up with some really great concepts.
I really hope that these become accessible to purchase for everyone in the near future because I think people would love these products.
In the meantime, you can visit their online store for more information and offers. They do mention to contact them if you wish to place an international order.
