For the delicate eye area, Goodal‘s Green Tangerine Vita C Eye Cream teams up vitamin C and green tangerine extract to minimize the appearance of dark circles and boost elasticity over time.
Enough Project‘s Moisture Cream is packed with beta-hyaluronic acid (which the brand claims is 1.5 times more effective than common hyaluronic acid) and vitamin E to pamper and soften skin all day long. Belif‘s popular Moisturizing Bomb is packed with comfrey leaf, oat extract, and panthenol to keep your skin feeling super supple and hydrated for up to 26 hours — and as a bonus, the brand threw in its Pore Cleanser into a bundle to sweep away dead skin.
K-beauty is serious about maintaining soft and smooth lips. Just take Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Masks, which are undeniably the brand’s hero product (and sadly not officially sold on Amazon). Luckily, we have many other sweet-smelling options to peruse.
Swipe on Nooni‘s Appleberry Lip Oil during the day and keep lips looking healthy and nourished with vitamins A, C, and E. You can’t go wrong with any of the four varieties/scents: Appleberry (pictured above) Applecoco, Applemint, and Citrus.
Then apply Mamonde‘s Lip Sleeping Mask right before bed to lock in moisture with its antioxidant-rich plum blossom extract and murumuru butter formula. You’ll wake up with plump lips, and if you choose to don a lipstick, your lips will be perfectly prepped as well — no flaking or feathering in the forecast.
Allow us to briefly stand on our soapboxes and remind you that you need to wear sunscreen every single day, even if you don’t step foot outside. UVA rays easily penetrate glass windows and can lead to photo-aging (think dark spots, wrinkles, etc.) and skin cancer, so slather up. Set daily reminders if you need to. Korean sunscreens have some of the best and most comfortable formulas money can buy. Take Banila Co and Innisfree for example — they both disappear into skin without leaving any white cast, heaviness, or residue.
Korean skin care might be our guiding siren, but Korean makeup brands are making their mark as well. We like to think that’s partially thanks to the stunning looks that K-pop stars put on for comebacks, but also because they’re simply just that good.
For a practically weightless base that’ll even out any imperfections, the Best of Beauty-winning Amorepacific Color Control Cushion Compact SPF 50 does it all — providing color correction, tinted coverage, and sun protection. (We still recommend applying a separate sunscreen to ensure the utmost coverage.) On days you want to skip the all-over tint and simply spot-treat, Hanskin‘s Blemish Cover Concealer is highly dependable and doesn’t enhance texture in the slightest.
Peripera’s Ink Velvet Lip Tints and Hera‘s Sensual Powder Matte Lipsticks are perfect for all-day, impossibly lightweight color — seriously, you’ll forget you’re even wearing them.
Stubborn frizz and split ends are no match for the TonyMoly Haeyo Mayo Hair Nutrition Pack which, despite its name, has a scrumptious vanilla scent. Shea butter, macadamia seed oil, and egg yolk extract team up to intensely hydrate and smooth dry, brittle hair in just three minutes.
Enough Project‘s Sweet Peach Shampoo & Vinegar Treatment Set targets irritated scalps and brings your pH levels back to normal (around 5.5). Both products are infused with sea salt, houttuynia cordata extract, nettle extract, and artemisia vulgaris extract to remove buildup, control excess sebum, and strengthen your scalp’s barrier.
