Trend Alert: Korean Beauty Products

Want to take your beauty routine international without the expensive plane ticket? Korean beauty products have been popping up everywhere lately. It seems like a new product emerges every month and everyone goes into a frenzy. With big retailers such as Costco and Sephora jumping onto the bandwagon, this trend is here to stay!

It’s not just all hype and no substance. K-beauty products are some of the most innovative makeup and beauty products in the market right now. Still undecided? Here’s a run-down of why we think Korean beauty products shouldn’t be overlooked.

What do Korean beauty products do differently?

Skincare: Famous for their 10-step daily skin routine (seriously, there’s 10 steps), Koreans take skincare VERY seriously. Maintaining a youthful glow is one of their top goals, and they’re owning it.

Okay, but who actually has time for 10 steps of skincare?

Innovation: Top Korean beauty brands are known for their innovation. The Korean market is super competitive , so they’re always coming up with new products that give consumers the most bang for their buck.

The adventure factor: Their target consumers aren’t afraid to experiment a little. So you’ll definitely see some products you wouldn’t normally find in the western market.

Eco-friendliness: Companies know that unpronounceable ingredients don’t hold much sway with the public, so they focus on making eco-friendly products with natural ingredients.

In fact, a quick search on Sephora will bring up over a hundred Korean makeup and skincare products. With so much to choose from, what should we be looking for? Here are some must-have products from around the net:
