Korean beauty products have taken over the beauty industry. Known for their elaborate 10-step routines, K-beauty quickly infiltrated the Western market. Shepora now carries multiple Korean brands such as Dr. Jart, Laneige, and Glow Recipe. Korea is inarguably the leader in new, innovative skincare – but the movement is more than just an assortment of savvy products. K-beauty is a lifestyle that prioritizes skin health and self-care. With so many products to pick from you’re probably wondering where to start. Here are the highest-rated Korean beauty products worth trying.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
We all know the importance of taking care of our skin, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your lips. This overnight lip mask is enriched with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C. This product is heaven sent during the winter months and the perfect therapy after sunburnt lips. The mask is available in a berry and vanilla version – both are incredible. It’s formulated without parabens or phthalates and never tested on animals. You can find Langeige’s lip mask at Sephora.
The Yeon Refining Calamine Pink Spot
The pink spot is the blemish formula you’ve been hoping for. It’s very similar to the popular Mario Badescu drying lotion, only more effective. The clear liquid is a mixture of acne-fighting salicylic acid with calming Nab Willow Bark and calamine. The ingredients separate within the bottle, but don’t shake them up! Simply dab a cotton swab into the bottom and then place the product over your blemish. The formula controls sebum, reduces inflammation, and allows spots to reach the surface. The Yeon is available on Amazon, Reily Rose, and more online retailers.
Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask
If you’re struggling with a dry, uneven skin tone then you need to try this sheet mask. The hydrating egg cream mask will leave you feeling glowy and youthful – without clogging your pores. It’s the perfect preparation for upcoming weddings, graduations, and first dates. The entire Too Cool For School brand is cruelty-free and safe for all skin types, even the highly sensitive. Be warned, there is so much serum within the packet it can get a little messy. On the bright side, you can save the package and use the extra serum the next day. Pick up this sheet mask at Ulta, Target, and Sephora.
MEMEBOX I Dew Care Disco Kitten Mask
This peel-off mask by MEMEBOX instantly sold out at Ulta and has since generated a lot of buzz. The product is described as an illuminating diamond mask and it absolutely lives up to the hype. Formulated with rice bran, diamond powder, and oat, disco kitten will make your skin look so healthy you’ll glisten. The pearly white mask dries with a metallic chrome finish, so you can feel like a self-care tinman. After peeling the product off you’re left with a hydrated and even complexion. Get yours at Ulta now because it’s bound to sell out again.
Dr. Jart+ Cicipair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment
Dr. Jart’s entire tiger grass line is the perfect color corrector for anyone dealing with redness or sensitivity. The color correcting formula was inspired by Asian tigers that would roll in Centella Asiatica or tiger grass to heal their wounds. Whether your living with acne, rosacea, or inflammation this treatment will neutralize redness and provide a more even skin tone. This product also contains SPF 30 to protect your skin from UV rays. The rich treatment creates a temporary barrier to shield your face from environmental factors such as pollution or dust. You can purchase this product at Sephora.
