Whether you're new to the Korean Beauty game or already a seasoned K-Beauty addict, it's always refreshing to introduce one-of-a-find, top-shelf-worthy beauty picks to your collection. From sheet mask, ampoule, facial cleanser, to lip tint, we’re rounding up some of the best Korean beauty products spotted on Allure Korea's latest Best of Beauty list — skincare AND makeup products — to get you hyped up for Black Friday this year!
Hypoallergenic, sensitive skin friendly, non-sticky, no white cast... If we were to list all the reasons why we love Dr.G's Green Mild Up Sun, it would be endless. Formulated with a mild mineral filler and anti-pollution, this SPF50+ sunscreen belongs in your daily skincare routine as it protects your delicated, sensitive skin from harmful UV rays throughout the day.
When your sensitive skin is in need of some TLC, you know you're in good hands with Abib's Mild Acidic pH Sheet Mask Heartleaf Fit. This Korean sheet mask features an almighty (and underrated) ingredient named Heartleaf, which sounds like a magical herb in a hearty fairytale story but is actually a leafy plant that helps balance your skin's pH level and strengthens skin barrier. Not to mention the skin-fitting mask that will make the cooling effect more satisfying for your daily self-care routine.
LAGOM's Cellup Gel to Water Cleanser washes the day away as good as any all-star facial cleanser with its lightweight, refreshing skin-feel, but there's more to it. This Korean facial cleanser has a transforming gel-to-water texture which will make you actually look forward to washing your face every day and night. It's also the perfect morning cleanser for removing any oil-based creams that may settle on your skin while sleeping from the night before.
We simply can't resist a good sleeping mask, let alone this Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask from Belif. Consider this sleeping mask the sister from the brand's bestselling Aqua Bomb moisturizer who works overtime to keep your dry skin extra hydrated throughout the night, especially during the dry winter season. The thick jelly-like texture is perfect to drench your skin in explosive hydration, just like a bomb (literally).
We do not encourage day-drinking, but with this one? Drink all the way. Meet LABIOTTE's Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint (Velvet) for the just-right amount of tipsy-ness and matte lip glamour. This cute lipstick delivers the perfectly pigmented red shade that will glide over your lips for an easy and smooth application. Pack this cutie in your purse for a quick touch-up in case you need a little wine action during the day.
Haven't you heard? Gloss is boss, so is this Amuse Dew Tint in shade #05 Hipjiro. If you're looking for a lip tint that doubles as a lip gloss (but not in a sticky way), this K-Beauty pick will get you the perfect pout with a gorgeous shade of peach-coral. Not to mention the sheer-but-buildable pigment that will add a shiny touch to your winter makeup look.
On the days when you can't decide on whether you want to wear a lipstick or a lip balm, HERA's Sensual Spicy Nude Balm has just what you need. This hybrid lip product doesn't compromise on pigment because A) the shade #429 lends a sensual, luxed-up allure to your MLBB makeup look, and B) this Korean lip balm is formulated with Snow Crystal Powder, which gives a subtle glittery finish to your effortlessly chic style.
Looking for something boujee to add to your Black Friday shopping bag? Sulwhasoo's Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Serum makes your luxury dream come true. Powered by Ginsenomics™, this Korean anti-aging serum boosts your skin's renewing power to make it more firm and supple. This all-star K-Beauty is also the perfect wrinkle treatment to help reduce any visible signs of aging.
BE PLAIN's bestseller Cicaful Ampoule is a plant-based ampoule that features one of most buzzworthy natural ingredients in the world: Centella Asiatica. This HwaHae’s most-loved ampoule has been a strongly hyped skincare product in Korea, and truly works wonders to soothe and calm inflamed and irritated skin without any added fragrance, essential oils or alcohol.
MISSHA's Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence is a concentrated essence formulated with double fermented Artemisia Annua extract, which is known for its soothing properties. As the first step of your skin care routine, this Korean essence helps calm your sensitive skin and restores its balance after the cleansing skin care step.
For the days when your skin just feels… meh, Dr.Ceuracle's Royal Vita Propolis 33 Ampoule is a multi-tasking skin treatment drenched in propolis extract + royal jelly extract to give you a glow-skin boost. This luxurious Korean ampoule will instantly restore a radiant, well-rested glow to your tired skin better than a good-night sleep.
Pamper your stress-worn skin after-hours with MIZON's Night Repair Seruming Ampoule. This super-charged Korean serum is packed with active ingredients to treat signs of aging, which helps improve the moisturizing ability and keeps your skin bouncy and elastic all night long.
