ICYMI: November is World Vegan Month, dedicated to raising awareness for the benefits of veganism! Vegan products can be found across the entirety of our lineup, though it might not be so obvious; we’re here to put a spotlight on these vegan-friendly and sustainable products to celebrate the month.
Last time we introduced the underrated vegan brands and products from rising K-beauty brands you need to know about. Today, we break down the vegan MVPs on our radar that are constantly selling out and have made it to the bestseller list of all time. No matter your skin type or concern, these conscious beauty picks will elevate your routine for your best skin yet. Keep scrolling to learn more!
An all-star all-rounder that deserves a spot on your top shelf this fall and winter long (and year-round, tbh) is the ILLIYOON Ceramide Ato Lotion. Celebrated for its gentle and nourishing touch, this body lotion quells sensitivity and provides abundant moisture to the skin with a fast-absorbing, lightweight formula. It incorporates the brand’s patented Ceramide Skin Complex, which is specifically designed to deliver active ingredients and encourage the skin to absorb them. It’s so mild that it even works as a face moisturizer, and can be used for babies and adults alike.
A splash of the I'm From Mugwort Essence and you’ll be absolutely hooked, we swear. Mugwort takes the lead role in this skin booster, offering soothing and moisture-replenishing benefits. It’s also known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, giving the skin multifaceted protection and care to stand up against external irritants. The Stylevana Family loves this for how it makes the skin glossy, firm, and hydrated, which are all good things we can’t say no to.
No gatekeeping here: the RiRe All Day Vegan Makeup Fixer is *the* K-beauty setting spray you HAVE to have in your collection. It keeps makeup fresh and in place all day, thanks to its moisturizing polymer that forms a protective barrier preventing makeup from rubbing or wearing off. Heartleaf and Chamomile extracts deliver soothing care and hydrating moisture, eradicating the uncomfortable tightness that other mists can cause. It's complete with an uber-fine mist that settles into the skin comfortably and doesn’t clump up.
The Goodal Vegan Rice Milk Moisturizing Toner doesn’t have the typical texture you’d expect from a toner. It comes in a milky water-gel consistency that gets slurped up by the skin, instantly drenching it with hydration and nourishment. This Sandui Rice and Aqua Ceramide-packed toner addresses dry and sensitive skin types, fortifying the skin barrier to ward off further dryness or irritation. Whoever said mild products aren’t effective is clearly missing out on this gem.
If you’re seeking a moisturizing sunscreen to use throughout the colder seasons, the FRUDIA Ultra UV Shield Sun Essence SPF50+ PA++++ is the perfect one to opt for. 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid ensure the skin is well hydrated and prevented from moisture loss due to UV exposure. A hybrid physical-chemical sunscreen, you won’t see any white cast or pilling no matter how many layers you apply; it sinks effortlessly into the skin, just like a moisturizing essence.
Did you know that our VANA award winner for best cleansing balm this season is also vegan? The accolades just keep piling up. The heimish All Clean Balm breaks down and emulsifies to gently but effectively cleanse the skin, clearing away makeup, excess sebum, and dead skin cells without causing irritation. Shea Butter, Coconut extract and White Flower Complex give this cleanser a comfortable, natural aroma, making you feel as though you were enjoying a relaxing spa treatment.
The Goodal Apricot Collagen Youth Firming Cream is made to restore suppleness and softness to the skin. Packed with 100% botanical Apricot Collagen, this cream firms the skin and boosts elasticity, plumping it up for a youthful appearance. With it, erase fine lines and wrinkles and sink into deep nourishment, as it improves overall skin health in as little as 4 weeks. If this Goodal goodie wasn’t impressive enough already, it’s also safe to use for pregnancy so you can tackle any hormonal skin concerns while remaining radiant.
If you’ve never tried Green Plum in your routine, the BEAUTY OF JOSEON Green Plum Refreshing Toner : AHA + BHA will make you fall *hard*. Donguibogam, a Joseon Dynasty herbal medicine book, records plums to be a comforting toxin remover, and this toner does just that for the skin. It’s also formulated with AHA and BHA (2% Glycolic Acid and 0.5% Salicylic Acid) to assist skin cell turnover and unclog the pores, leaving a refreshed, brighter complexion in its wake.
If you feel like there’s something missing from your routine, chances are you’re missing the I'm From Fig Boosting Essence. It uses 2.7% Fig extract to moisturize the deep layers of the skin, preparing it to better absorb the forthcoming layers of your routine. This ingredient also offers potent antioxidant protection to fend off pollution-induced irritation and signs of aging. Fragrance isn’t all that necessary in skincare, but this essence’s delectable Fig scent is a downright treat for the senses and elevates the entire experience.
Light up your world and complexion with the SOME BY MI Yuja Niacin Dark Spot Correcting Stick. It features 5% Niacinamide and Korean Goheung Yuja extract to squash melanin production, treat dark spots, and brighten the overall complexion. This 4-in-1 multi-use product comes in a handy stick form for convenient application and reapplication, suitable for applying over makeup or on pigmented areas of the body. With a 0.00 irritation score, all skin types can pick this up and amp up the glow with ease.
Light up your world and complexion with the Haruharu WONDER Black Rice Hyaluronic Cream Unscented. Think of the OG formula, a cream with major barrier-fortifying, glow-boosting and skin-refining benefits due to fermented Black Rice and Bamboo Shoot Bark extract, minus its fragrance, to make it suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. It’s also formulated without mineral oils, parabens, silicone, and a host of other nasties, so you can focus on how smooth and luminous your skin becomes.
If we could crown any skincare product as king, the JIN JUNG SUNG Soothing Moisture Skin Essence would definitely take the throne. This superstar essence contains 8 moisturizing ingredients, including Shea Butter, Ceramide, and botanical Squalane, that work in synergy to strengthen the skin barrier and help it retain moisture. Dripping in 5-star ratings, it's a booster beloved by fans for its abilities to boost skin radiance, soothe irritation, and treat fine lines for all skin types.
