If you’re hunting for beauty deals during Amazon Prime Day, you simply can’t overlook the abundance of Korean skin-care and beauty deals at your disposal. There’s something for everyone, whether that’s a new cleanser, essence, sheet mask, or lip tint. And the best part? Everything is up to 60 percent off.
K-beauty products are known to be pretty affordable — Cosrx, Neogen, and Goodal, the list goes on — but we won’t complain if there’s an extra discount. And, on top of that, some of the more luxurious brands like Amorepacific and Donginbi are also partaking. No matter what price point, all of these innovative, effective, and gentle products will contribute to a skin-care routine that’ll plump up and brighten your complexion for an undeniable glow. Amazon Prime Day has never looked so dewy.
If you don’t know where to begin in the realm of Korean skin care, take it literally and start with the first step. Well, make it two steps, because once you try double cleansing you’ll never go back. The first step is an oil-based cleanser, cleansing balm, or micellar water, which will melt and break down the excess sebum produced by your skin and derived from your makeup.
The Enough Project Cleansing Oil contains a plethora of olive, grapeseed, and coconut oils for an extra gentle glide, while Hanskin‘s BHA Pore Cleansing Balm gently exfoliates dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and melts away waterproof makeup with utter ease.
Then, once all of the makeup and dirt is gone, it’s time to really get into your pores with a water-based cleanser. We’re big fans of AHC‘s Aqualuronic Cleanser, which just won a Best of Beauty Award for its impossibly light and airy texture that removes makeup and dirt with baffling ease. It’s formulated with a fortifying combination of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and French seawater. Donginbi‘s Red Ginseng Moisture & Pure Cleansing Foam is packed with red ginseng, which protects skin against free radicals and increases collagen production for firmer skin.
For a deep, exfoliating cleanse, it doesn’t get much better than Amorepacific‘s water-activated, powder-to-foam Treatment Enzyme Peel. Papaya and green tea enzymes gently sweep away dead skin cells for a brighter complexion with each use.
Whereas some Western toners might be associated with the words “harsh” and “astringent,” Korean toners pride themselves on being extra gentle and supportive toward your skin barrier. These toners will rebalance your skin’s pH levels after a thorough double cleanse or exfoliating mask and provide the hydration your skin craves.
Whereas glass skin is all about seeking dewiness, mochi skin is about shine-free luminosity. Packed with a blend of ceramides, Tonymoly‘s Wonder Ceramide Mocchi Toner is the perfect hydrating product to reach for post-cleanse and it’ll prep your skin for any subsequent products.
