Ask the cool girl in your barkada—she’ll tell you a little experimentation never hurt anybody. And if you’re willing to take risks for the sake of your kikay kit, Korean beauty is the place to start. Beyond sheet masks and snail slime, this Asian mecca has pioneered plenty of other strange wonders you’ve probably never tried. We cite 8 examples below!

1. Blackhead Silk Finger Balls by COSRX, P170 If you belong to the blackhead-ridden community (hello there!), consider these nifty Silk Finger Balls your newest toys. The balls are made from 100% silk and designed to be worn on your fingertips like thimbles. Use them post-cleansing to clear away deep-seated sebum buildup that skincare can’t penetrate. You may also rub them over blemish scars for gradual spot correction.

2. Dodo Cat Glow Cushion BB by Holika Holika, P1,295 We’re suckers for cute packaging, and this Holika Holika collab with French illustrator Audrey Jeanne is the cutest thing we’ve seen of late.

This unique feature is infused with a shiny essence, and when mixed with foundation, it gives your skin a dewy finish. Great for the beauty-addicted and animal-obsessed alike!

This treatment-infused glove conditions calloused mitts with amino acid complex, veggie extracts, and snail secretion filtrate. FYI, your hands are one of the most exposed and wrinkle-prone parts of your body, so you’d be wise to pamper those palms.
