  • Words by Beauty Bar

There’s so much hype surrounding Korean beauty products. What actually entices us to buy into the K-beauty trend? Is it their major K-celebrity endorsers? Or is it the countless freebies you receive when you buy products? Maybe it’s the nice packaging that all these products have? Could it be perhaps, that we’ve been hypnotized by the K-wave that draws us to Korean products, and does it matter? Do the skincare products they offer us actually work or are we buying into the hype and fanfare around everything Korean?

Well, good news! A lot of Korean skincare IS effective. Koreans emphasize being the best version of yourself and that means they want your makeup-free skin to be flawless and supple. On top of that, Korean skin is sensitive, so companies develop formulas that are gentle and effective. But as is with most things, not all skincare is made the same and you usually get what you pay for. There’s a reason for the range of prices in skin care products and it’s usually due to the concentration and quality of ingredients. However, if you search hard enough, there are K-beauty brands that find a nice balance between price and quality. Here are a few of our favorite K-beauty brands whose products are worth every centavo.

Skin1004

 

Skin1004 features Madagascar Centella in its products. The specially chosen Centella leaves are antibacterial and soothing, helping keep away breakouts, acne, and irritation. The Madagascar Centella Ampoule Foam is slightly acidic to restore the skin’s pH balance. It creates a nice lather that cleanses your skin without causing dryness. The Madagascar Centella Ampoule calms and purifies the skin. It nourishes and helps with redness. They have a product called the Zombie Pack & Activator that addresses exfoliation, texture, tone, moisture, clearness, water-oil balance, pores, elasticity, lifting. It’s a great way to pamper and care for your skin after a week of stress and exposure to the elements. We always remind you to protect your skin with a great sunscreen, and their Madagascar Centella Air-Fit Sunscreen is high on our list of recommendations. It has SPF 50 PA++++ to keep your skin safe from UV rays. It has a matte finish and even contains Niacinamide to help even out your skin tone. This Korean skincare brand is definitely worth checking out to help you out with redness and irritation.

CORSX

 

If you’ve experimented with Korean skincare before, you’ll be pretty familiar with this brand. COSRX products are a crowd favorite and for good reason! They’re easy to use, effective, and reasonably priced. The Two in One Poreless Power Liquid is a skin-smoothing essence-toner that visibly tightens and reduces the look of pores! Their Blackhead Silk Balls are also a popular product. Use the pad to massage the gunk out of your pores and help clear your skin. If you have a breakout problem, the One Step Pimple Clear Pads can be your solution. The active ingredients penetrate deeply into pores to dissolve oil and dead skin cells, which help in controlling breakouts.
