As we have mentioned in our magazine, banana flavour is one of the trendiest flavours this month in Korea! The banana choco pies were flying off the shelves and were pretty much sold out.

First time you’ve heard of royal jelly? It is the principle food of the honey bee queen, made by the worker bees. Basically, one step up from honey! This is actually quite a common ingredient nowadays, it was a huge trend when it was first introduced a few years ago in Korea, and probably rather new to many Western countries still!

Properties: Slows signs of ageing and anti-inflammatory for acne-prone, sensitive or mature skin! All round winner.
