We’ve been obsessed with Korean beauty prods for quite some time now, but with so many out there, it can be hard to know where to start. If we had to narrow it down to our favourites, we’d choose these five beauties from the land of the cushion compact. Ready, set, shop.
# 1 Mizon Mask
Mizon sheet masks are the absolute bomb for a quick skin pick-me-up. Infused with the very best natural and active ingredients, there’s a mask for every skin concern, whether you want to tighten, brighten, smooth, or soothe. We particularly love the Soothing Mask, with Vitamin E and lavender (it smells ah-mazing!), and the Vitamin C-packed Tone Up Mask, which delivers an instant glow.
# 2 Neogen Real Flower Rose Cleansing Water
We’re mad for a lazy-girl product, and using this gorgeous cleansing water is a total breeze. Suitable even for dry skins, it contains this year’s hottest natural ingredient: rose. There are real rose petals suspended in the water, making it a bathroom bench essential. Simply apply to a makeup remover pad and swipe away the day’s grime, without irritating or stripping the skin. There’s no rinsing required and skin is left soft, hydrated and clean – not tight and squeaky.
# 3 Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser
The name might sound a bit dubious, but we promise you’ll love this innovative cleanser! Yes, it does contain snail. Specifically, it’s formulated with purified snail extract which is believed to have healing, moisturising and regenerative abilities. As promised, it foams up into a thick, cushiony, marshmallowy lather that swiftly removes impurities, makeup and dead skin cells for a brighter, softer complexion.
# 4 Cremorlab Hydro Plus Snow Falls Water Full Serum
Perfect for parched winter skins, this super hydrating serum from Cremorlab contains hyaluronic acid and phytosqualane to keen the skin healthy. Marine collagen assists the skin’s metabolism, while Edelweiss extract blended with T.E.N. water adds moisture. Apply this easily absorbed serum morning and night, after cleansing and before your moisturiser.
# 5 RE:P Advanced BB Cream
Just cos you’re not hitting the beach, you shouldn’t neglect sun protection during winter. This BB cream by R:EP is the perfect solution, proving a light and luminous coverage and non-sticky finish, while also treating the skin with nourishing plant extracts including rose, rose hip, aloe vera, and licorice. It’s also vegan, and free from parabens, mineral oils, propylene glycol and more.
