There’s something to be said about the effectivity of Korean Skincare. Google that phrase right now and you’ll see countless reviews and products on much-loved K-Beauty products. Maybe it’s because of the much-coveted glass skin look: poreless, lit-from-within, and utterly flawless—that many Korean stars have become our skincare goals. If you’re needing a little K-Beauty dose in your skincare routine, we’re rounding up the newest and well-reviewed products available in your favorite stores!
1. Nutrition Cream Pyunkang Yul
Pyongyang Yul is a skincare brand founded by Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Clinic in South Korea. Their products are the most simple versions of your favorite commercial products as everything is developed without the additives (like the scent), using only the pared-down, safe and most basic ingredients. Try this Nutrition Cream if you want to test out a new moisturizer. The thick cream feels luxurious when applied and does not have a greasy texture that most moisturizers have. It melts into your face and is perfect for those with dry, sensitive skin.
2. Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask
If your skin problems are related to dryness or aging, we recommend adding the Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask to your daily rotation. Its star ingredient is Vitamin E which strengthens the skin barrier and helps avoid premature aging. It’s also formulated with Niacinamide that helps brighten skin. Use it together with their other cult-fave product, Freshly Juiced Vitamin C mask.
3. CosRX One Step Pimple Clear Kit
CosRX is famous for its colloid pimple patches that miraculously heal spots and pimples overnight. If you love them as much as we do then it’s time to try their other products.
