K-Beauty Products Your Skincare Routine Needs Now

Add these to upgrade and refresh for the new year.

Beauty & Fashion

Whether you’re looking to try something new, or you want to step up your skincare game, K-Beauty products can help you do both. Over the past few years, Korean beauty products have become increasingly popular and are now sold in U.S. stores. From cleansers, toners, masks, and moisturizers, there is a variety to choose from. The traditional K-Beauty skincare routine includes 10 steps, but the cool thing is you can pick and choose which steps you want to do. One of the most highlighted steps of Korean skincare is to moisturize, but K-Beauty is also known for its face masks, too.


Here are a few popular K-Beauty products you can try, based on their skincare steps.

Cleanser: The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Rich Cleansing Light Oil

Cleansing the face is a two-step process in Korean skincare. First, you cleanse the face with an oil-based product followed by a water-based product. This ensures the skin is free of impurities on the skin’s surface and pores.

Exfoliator: Saturday Skin Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel

Unlike U.S.-made face scrubs, there's a different approach when it comes to getting rid of dead skin cells. Try a less abrasive exfoliant made from natural ingredients.

Toner: Laneige Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer

Think of this as a “primer." Toner helps balance the skin before you apply the next steps in the K-Beauty routine.

Essence: Hanskin Hyaluron Skin Essence

Think of essence as a lightweight, water-based, pre-moisturizer your skin didn’t know it needed before the actual moisturizer comes into play.

Serum: Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum

These help you address specific skin issues like hyperpigmentation, dark spots, texture, large pores, and more.

Mask: LAPCOS Revitalizing Variety Pack Sheet Masks

Whether it’s a sheet mask, peel-off mask, or clay mask, face masks are one of K-Beauty’s popular products.

Eye Cream: Sweet Chef Turmeric Vitamin C Booster 

You may not know this, but the skin around our eyes is extremely sensitive and different from the rest of our skin, so it needs more TLC in the form of eye cream.

Sleep Pack: Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

K-Beauty skincare is all about moisturizing the skin, so be prepared for some intense hydration while you sleep.

SPF: innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36

Sunscreen is where it’s at. It's imperative to protect the skin from the harshness of UV rays and sun damage as well as prevent premature signs of aging.

You can find K-beauty products online and in-store at Target, Ulta, Sephora, Amazon, and CVS. Which K-beauty brand products are you willing to try?

7 Ways To Establish A Mental Connection Long Before You Enter The Bedroom

I am not a casual sex type of person. I love dick but I love an emotional connection more. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried it once or twice but ultimately sex is better when I have a connection–the penis just feels better. However, pop culture would have you believe that when you meet someone, it’s automatic lust at first sight. You’re supposed to not be able to keep your hands off of each other due to all the sexual tension. Well in reality, especially in my life, that’s not how it works. I need a little more than physical attraction to get my juices flowing.
