My K-Beauty Trend Forecast for 2020
We’re steering towards the end of 2019 and thus also in the direction of 2020! Time to look at what we can expect from the new year in terms of Korean skincare trends in my K-beauty trend forecast for 2020, on an all new episode of The K-Beauty Podcast! These past weeks, I have been paying extra close attention to Korean brands that are known to be trendsetters, as well as especially Korea-based influencers to get a sense of what’s trending right now and what will be the biggest trends in Asian beauty for 2020. For my K-beauty trend forecast for the new year, I have selected 5 K-beauty skincare trends that I currently see emerging and that I believe will be huge in 2020 in the Korean and the wider Asian beauty industry!

The Most Exciting Autumn K-Beauty Launches for 2019 - The K-Beauty Podcast
Don't you just love that time of year when a bunch of new, exciting beauty products launch? I wanted to use today's The K-Beauty Podcast episode to discuss a number of these autumn K-beauty launches for 2019 with you guys and hopefully introduce you to a few goodies you may have otherwise overlooked. Especially in terms of Korean skincare, there is so much new stuff out right now or about to launch in the next weeks, all of it super interesting and potentially swoon-worthy. Not every product mentioned in this episode won me over completely, and I've got a thing or two to say about the pricing with one brand in particular, but all in all, my wish list definitely got longer after researching the latest autumn K-beauty launches for 2019.

The Lowdown on Organic K-Beauty!
Organic K-beauty has been a massive trend this year, and I myself have a deep love for organic skincare made in Korea. But, it's difficult sometimes to know which brand is and isn't "truly" organic. Fear not, dear listeners, for I shall help you wade through the confusing world of "organic" and "natural" skincare from Korea... Are you a fan of plant-based, cruelty-free and sustainably sourced beauty products? Well, then this episode is (hopefully!) for you! In my tireless quest to prove that Asian beauty is not just filled with animal-torturing, wasteful and "scarily exotic" brands, the focus for today's The K-Beauty Podcast episode is all on organic K-beauty brands because, yes, they DO absolutely exist. And - they are often highly innovative, aesthetically pleasing, and with a lot of heart and soul poured into their products.

My Korean Skincare Wish List for 2019
We are moving from discussing the past year to the present one, with all the forthcoming skincare gems that are on my Korean skincare wish list for 2019! Now, I can't really say that I feel hyper confident about actually being able to afford all of the products on my K-beauty wish list for 2019, but hey - a girl can dream, am I right? And, really, this is mostly about having fun fantasising what the new year will bring to my skincare shelf and talking about Asian beauty products that are currently on my radar as potential new superstars! Now, at the beginning of the episode, I got a little carried away ranting about "product review events" on Instagram - if you want to avoid this slight deviation from the actual episode topic, skip 3:01 - 15:34.
