BONIIK x The Face Shop Beauty Ambassador Event and BONIIK store tour.
I love introducing you to more Korean beauty stores in Sydney and surroundings, this one is located smack bam within the city CBD. Convenient huh? Well BONIIK, which is the store name, is a K-Beauty haven! They have curated a heap amount of K-Beauty products and brands and I am so thankful because I was chosen by BONIIK & The Face Shop to be a beauty ambassador. Exciting right?? They held a beauty ambassador welcome night and I think this is the first time I’ve attended an exclusive beauty event. It was heaps of fun and I met a few lovely bloggers too.
BONIIK has such a creative store entrance. It was the first thing I noticed, the oversized decals plastered on the crystal clear glass of all the familiar brands and products that I love. I was warmly welcomed by the staff that night. They took their time getting to know me as well as introducing themselves and the store. Oh and offered cupcakes and refreshments!
This is the first time I’ve paid a visit to BONIIK. It is located in Shop 42G Westfield Pitt Street Mall (under Myer), Sydney NSW 20000. This place reminds me of how far Korean skin care and cosmetics have come. I remember buying products online and discovering small stores in random places without much help from social media. Now that K-Beauty buzz is more real than ever, stores such as BONIIK provide such a comfortable space where we can discover all these new products and nostalgic ones first hand.
The store itself is very bright and well organised with all skin care products and masks against a white back-lit wall that surround the shop. You will find brands such as The Face Shop, Huxley, COSRX, J.One, Neogen, Klavuu, Maycoop, Whamisa, Klairs and Aromatica ahhh I would list them all! Luckily BONIIK also have an online website you can explore and they also post local and internationally. If you sign up they offer a $10 voucher to use on your first purchase too.
That night, the manager of BONIIK took myself and two other bloggers (we were all split into groups) around the store and gave us multiple product recommendations and allowed us to test them. We made a joke saying our hands are going to be so well pampered with all the products we applied on them haha!
Skincare products are arranged meticulously, things don’t look crowded. They are lined up clearly and most have testers. Staff at BONIIK have great knowledge of beauty and skin care products so don’t hesitate to ask for advice or ask questions.
All beauty ambassadors that night were able to take home one complimentary product, anything from the store that we wanted. Yes, this was so fun because of all the endless possibilities and I was screaming a little inside merely by the fact that they said: anything. I had so many items on my wishlist but it come down to one product.
I decided to take home the C-TRAGEL cream by the brand ‘23 Years Old‘. This item retails for $59.00 AUD so I was over the moon I could have this. This was one of the items the manager presented to us during the store tour. She mentioned that it was a very popular product in Korea for treating pigmentation, freckles, sun spots and because of the star ingredients, vitamin c and seabuckthorn- it is an overall brightening product that evens and hydrates the complexion. I didn’t have any vitamin c products in my routine so this was one of the reasons why I wanted this.
BONIIK also stock an ENTIRE WALL dedicated to masks. See for yourself. I ended up taking home two rubber masks by the brand Lindsay because I’ve never tried rubber masks before. I got the Calendula and Vitamin type.
Each attendee was gifted a BONIIK bag to take home filled with full-sized products and masks! This is what we got:
- Thank You Farmer True Water Deep Cotton Mask
- Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask 2X Plus Wheat & Celery
- Wish Formula The Bat Eye Mask
- Wish Formula Blackhead & Blackmask Home Spa Kit
(Reviews will be done in seperate posts)
Before the night ended we took one group photo!
I had such an amazing time meeting the team behind BONIIK and The Face Shop Sydney. I wanted to say a big thank you and that I feel privilidged to be able to attend and take part amongst other passionate bloggers, and meeting some familiar accounts on instagram was also a highlight for me and I hope you enjoyed your time as much as I did. I hope you enjoyed this post! If you are in the area please don’t hesitate to drop by BONIIK and check this store out for yourself!
