Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O Seoul Edition

with one comment

shu_oil_seoul_LEJapanese brand Shu Uemura likes to release special, limited-edition versions of its best-selling cleansing oils, and this is one of those.

The Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O Seoul Edition is a duty-free exclusive product that combines the famous cleanser formula and cute packaging representing the South Korean capital.

As you can see in the picture, both the bottle and the outer carton are thoroughly decorated with drawings depicting “the breathtaking sights of Seoul”, according to the brand.

The 450ml product retail on board Korean Air flights for $69, and at Shinsegae Duty Free for $73 – in theory it shouldn’t be available outside Korea but a quick Google search tells me otherwise!

Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil Advanced Formula Designed by LisaHappy New Year, everyone! I am happy to say I’m back from an enforced break (no internet and knackered computer at home) to give you the sweet and lowdown on the best duty-free beauty buys out there. :)

Today’s featured product is the gorgeous Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil Advanced Formula Designed by Lisa, a new collaboration between the Japanese makeup brand and artist Lisa Kohno, the first winner of the Shu Uemura Art Award (I wrote about a previous partnership here). This beauty is exclusive to Korean Airlines so unless you’re flying with the carrier soon (or know someone who is), you won’t be able to purchase it!

This limited-edition 450ml bottle is currently available and retails on board for $70 or €52. Click on  the image for a larger version.

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier limited edition

with one comment

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier limited editionJapanese brand Shu Uemura has collaborated with artist Lisa Kohno, the first winner of the Shu Uemura Art Award, to crate a limited edition of its best-selling cleansing oil design exclusive for travel-retail. Inspired by the art of travel, the new Shu Uemura Skin Purifier is available exclusively at duty-free locations in the Asia/Pacific region with a supercute packaging/bottle.

This is what the supplier has to say:

The young Japanese artist’s design expresses a fantasy dream world that she describes as ‘a utopia in the sky’; it is a fantasy world where hearty-butterfly and fairy-flowers are guiding travellers to a destination of wonders. The imaginative motifs of flying hearts and butterfly flowers create a beautiful scene on the golden oil, which gives a happy energy to the bottle.

How gorgeous is that?
