FRUDIA was originally named Kawailnara, which means fruit land in Korean; now it is called FRUDIA — “Fru” standing for fruits and “dia” meaning of or from in Greek. FRUDIA skincare products utilize the brand’s unique technique to formulate with fruit extracts as their main ingredients. This Korean beauty brand, FRUDIA, has actually created skincare sub-lines based on the benefits of different fruits: blueberry for hydrating, green grape for pore cleaning, citrus for brightening, avocado for skin relief and pomegranate for moisturizing.


FRUDIA’s Avocado Series

Best For Skin Relief

Featured K-Beauty Skincare Product: FRUDIA - Avocado Relief Essence Toner

— What do you love about avocado?

Cassandra: Avocado features amino acid components that help soothe stressed and sensitized skin. The nutrients extracted from avocado are absorbed into the skin to strengthen the weakened moisture barrier and to protect skin from external irritation.

— What are your current favorites from FRUDIA’s Avocado line?

Cassandra: I have recently switched out my old toner for this FRUDIA Avocado Relief Essence Toner which is the first ever FRUDIA product I’ve ever tried and absolutely loved ever since. This FRUDIA Avocado toner is my current favorite and I’ve been enjoying this toner so much. FRUDIA’s Avocado skincare line works especially well with sensitive skin types and those who have acne-prone skin like me. If you are interested, you should also give the FRUDIA Avocado Relief Cream a try.

Best For Moisturizing

Featured K-Beauty Skincare Products: FRUDIA - Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Toner , Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Cream In Mist and Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Serum

— Any pomegranate favorites from FRUDIA?

Cassandra: FRUDIA’s Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Toner is a must-try if you want the coveted “glass skin” glow on your face. My skincare tip is to strategically layer skincare products such as this Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Toner + Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Cream In Mist. It’s different from most mists because it doesn’t cause trans epidermal water loss where the moisture from your skin tends to evaporate once you spray water on the skin. This FRUDIA mist sits on the skin and protects it with a hefty dose of moisture, thanks to the 85% of pomegranate extract inside.

Cassandra: It’s like a spray moisturizer so you could use this under makeup or you could use this as a light moisturizer for your everyday skincare routine . you could even use this FRUDIA mist as a makeup setting spray.
