Karolien: I never had bad skin as a teenager. I was breaking the most important rule of skin care by sleeping with my makeup on. For someone who went to cosmetics academy, I was not really into skin care. Skin care was too expensive to me and I’d rather spend my money on clothes and outings.
My skin condition hit rock bottom in my twenties and that really hit me hard. I went from zero pimples to cystic acne and terrible breakouts, and I could barely touch my skin without feeling pain. It was a wakeup call and that’s when I began to do research for solutions. I have tried the mainstream brands like La Roche Possay, Louis Widmer, Vichy etc but none of them seem to solve my skin problem.
I met someone who became my good friend. She is from EK beauty, a beautician who makes homemade masks and peelings who also helped me get rid of all my cystic acne. We used to have on-going conversations about skin care. One day during one of my treatments, she recommended Asian skincare to me as it’s effective and more affordable. I started looking online and came across Coos Cosmetics in 2016. I loved the unique products they offered and I was hooked immediately!
I remember ordering various products, which I really really liked. I received many samples of different brands to try. I fell in love immediately with Coos as the brand, and Alice as a person because the customer service is outstanding. I have been ordering ever since! So thank you Alice for getting me into Korean skincare and for offering all those amazing products!
