Best Korean skincare
The Sephora of K beauty launches the most creative Korean Skin Care product
Soko Glam, Korean beauty, and skin treatment one-stop-shop have compiled the most creative Must-Have list annually for the past six years. Below is the chart for this year.
Shoppers selected finalists through a summer survey, with the exception that Soko Glam workers would have applied. The list contains all the various categories from Beginners to long-term Holy grails such as Cosrx acne pimple master patch and Mamonde Petal Spa to Foam Cleanser.
If you’re new to the Korean beauty or a Reddit-having veteran, use this list to buy the best K-beauty products. You’d be in good shape if only you purchased these ten products to begin with.
These are Soko Glam’s best releases of Korean beauty and skincare:
Mamonde Petal Spa Oil To Cleanser Foam
Supposedly a one-stop-shop solution to double-cleansing, this Mamonde oil-to-foam cleanser starts as a silk oil that captures makeup, SPF, and grime and then emulsifies into milk that cleanses the skin without losing moisture.
Customers note that it is suitable for sensitive skin and that the rose oil of Damask is a natural fragrance.
Acwell Licorice pH Equilibrating Nature Mist
This essence mist, a collaboration between Soko Glam and Acwell, is full of brightening and hydrating ingredients and sprays a perfect, even mist. After your spritzing, your face should feel refreshed and nourished.
Solved Oil Washing Pads Skincare
Solved Skincare Coconut Oil Cleaning Pads are two-sided travel-friendly pads that can handle waterproof mascara, long-wearing lipstick, and even sunscreen without skipping a beat.
The pads are formulated with an emulsifier to ensure that the 100 percent virgin coconut oil is rinsed with water cleanly. They’re less sticky than a conventional cleaning oil, and they’re not even stored in a big container so they can go wherever you go.
Powerful Hydrating Sheet Mask Mediheal N.M.F
Mediheal produces some of the most hydrating masks that have been tried by Soko Glam workers or customers.
Crafted by dermatologists and aestheticians, the masks contain hyaluronic acid, amino acids, and sugars (a natural humectant to help skin maintain moisture) to take skin from dry and flaky to soft and supple. Other ingredients such as willow bark and hazel witch color, and exfoliate.
Elensilia CPP Collagen Rich Eye Cream 80 per cent
This eye cream is made from an extract of 80 percent hydrolyzed collagen that helps plump skin and prevents the development of fine lines. It also has two proprietary peptides, one that decreases puffiness and the other that helps improve the growth of collagen and protect against loss of collagen.
Shoppers enjoyed that the eye looks smoother, lighter, and more hydrated as soon as the cream is added, according to Soko Glam reports, and that concealer doesn’t cake up when poured on top.
Neogen Real Vita C Lemon Powder
This is a vitamin C powder intended to be combined with your toner or essence to prevent unwanted fillers such as water from diluting its potency. It is formulated with 17 percent ascorbic acid (the kind of vitamin C that is absorbed into your skin), allantoin, hydrolyzed collagen, trehalose, and lemon extract to make the teint appear brighter and plumper.
The dark jar helps avoid oxidation of the powder, too — a common concern when purchasing vitamin C products.
Midnight Klairs Blue Soothing Cream
Klairs’ Midnight Blue Cream helps to soothe irritated post-facial skin extractions, exposure to the sun, windburn, and more, while also hydrate and reduce redness.
Guaiazulene comes from chamomile oil and is also responsible for the cool blue hue, while Centella hydrates and soothes irritation and redness. Staff and customers note that a thin layer was sufficient to boost overnight moisture and calm skin and that the formula melts right into the skin.
Hanskin Pore Purifying Oil
If blackheads and dull skin are your main skin complaints, then this cleansing oil may be a good option.
It uses soft polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) to help minimize the appearance of large pores, improve the texture of the skin and cleanse without leaving a greasy or sticky film behind. Tea tree leaf oil helps avoid breakouts and the packaging of jojoba oil and other seed oils and extracts in food.
Cosrx acne master patch for pimples
The Cosrx stickers serve as a trap for bacteria and gunk causing acne.
Place one on top of a whitehead and, like a magnet without pressure, discomfort, or the possible contamination or scarring from your own wandering hands, it will pull all the gunk inside.
It also seems to be fast-tracking the healing process, according to shoppers.
Benton aloe toner for BHA skin
This toner rebalances the skin with ingredients such as salicylic acid that battles acne, calming aloe water, and moisturizing snail mucin. Until the rest of your skincare routine, use it with a cotton pad or hand palms to help other items penetrate more deeply.
Serum peach and lily glass peel
Peach & Lily Glass Skin Serum is filled with skin-loving ingredients that will help you achieve “glass skin,” described by founder Alicia Yoon as “skin that is so safe and hydrated that it appears poreless, luminous, and translucent.” The peach extract is chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids to keep skin bouncy and resilient. Connect a string of hydrating, soothing, and brightening ingredients like niacinamide, Asian mountain yam extract, and peptides, and see why this serum is a fan favorite. That’s why we put it in our Allure Beauty Box of July — it’s just so sweet.
Watermelon Glow Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner
Glow Recipe’s new launch, the Pore-Tight Toner Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA, is inspired by the Korean Aqua Peel Facial. In addition to the apparent extract of watermelon (full of amino acids and hydrating and calming skin wonders), this toner also contains cactus water, which helps the skin maintain moisture, much like the desert-thriving plant itself.
As for the “pore close” portion, this refers to the combined six percent of polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) and willow bark (a natural source of beta hydroxy acids, or BHAs), which gently removes sebum and unclogs pores.
Then I’ll meet you to clean the balm.
We’re hard-pressed to find a skincare product that feels as natural and successful as the 2019 Allure Best of Beauty Award winner Then I Found You ‘s Living Scrub Balm because it melts away every last bit of makeup, sunscreen, and dirt from your face. Its star ingredient is seaberry (or sea buckthorn) oil, which is rich in antioxidants and softens the skin with fatty acids. Persimmon extract helps to brighten up while olive oil and vitamin E help to nourish the skin, so it doesn’t feel tight after washing. Follow this oil-based cleanser for a specific double-cleansing routine with a water-based rinse, and get ready to say hello to cleaner, less stuffy skin.
Good days (skin) A Fresh Leaf Cream Cleanser.
This low pH facial cream cleanser is rich in antioxidants and filled with greens such as green tea, spinach, and broccoli to nourish and protect the skin remarkably. According to Cho, adding mugwort, which happens to be “one of Korea’s most Buzzi beauty ingredients,” also helps exfoliate the skin gently. “We’ve learned from our devoted Soko Glam group over the last few years that mugwort is one of their very favorite acne-fighting ingredients due to its gentle anti-inflammatory properties. It targets redness, irritation, and dryness and is also considered to be a soothing herb due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties, “Cho says.
Laneige Dorming Water Mask
Heart hydrating masks overnight? Take this today then! This mask was a recipient of the Best of Beauty Award in 2017 by Allure. It includes evening primrose and extracts of Hunza apricot, brightening up the dull skin. Leave it on your face overnight, and wake up with nourished and dewy skin.
