The 6 Holy Grail K-Beauty Products You Need Now

These beauties give us serious glow.

From sheet masks, BB creams to the 10-step nightly programme, K Beauty reinvented the way most of us view skincare. But, with such a wide variety of products available, how do you know what to pick? Well, we have done the hard work for you with our pick of the best.

Best Moisturiser - COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream

Not only does this little beauty plump and moisturise my skin in a flash, it also seals the moisture in meaning that no matter how sweaty or humid I get, my skin is still protected. 

Best Essence/ Serum - COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

I stayed away from this product for a long time because let's face it, who wants to put snail mucin on their faces but after just one try, I am now hooked. The ingredients in this essence help the skin lose less moisture and instantly smooths and plumps my face once its on. You've heard the expression as smooth as a baby's bottom? Well, that could have been written about this essence. 

Best Sheet Mask - Mediheal N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask 

This one was a hard one to choose because there are just so many good K masks on the market but this one wins for me thanks to the ceramides, hyaluronic acid and witch hazel in them which all work together to plump fine lines and add some much-needed moisture to my skin. 

Best Cleanser - ma:nyo Pure Cleansing Oil

Did you know that in Korea there is often a fine dust caused by pollution that a lot of Korean women say settles on their skin? Well, they have the perfect solution with this. Containing Argan Oil, Ceramid and Hyaluronic Acid, this little beauty melts make-up and dirt off the skin, as well as any blackheads and imperfections, leaving you with fresh, clean and shining skin. 

Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream

If you haven't added Ceramidin to your daily routine by now, how can you call yourself a K-Beauty fan? The newest it-ingredient, Korean fans are loving Dr Jart's cream thanks to the fact that it fundamentally improves the skin barrier while shielding from moisture loss and protecting the skin. This butter-like textured cream cream strengthens the moisture barrier and protects the skin from hydration loss by forming a strong moisture layer on the skin surface. Add to cart right now. 

Torriden Balanceful Cica Tona Pads

One of the lesser-known K-Beauty brands, Torriden state their mission is to be a part of each individual's voyage to optimal beauty. One of their best-selling products is the Tona Pads which soften and refresh sensitive skin texture by adding LHA and PHA to complex cica ingredients. Vegan-certified fabric with an embossing pattern that closely resembles the skin, cleans and gently wipes every corner of your skin, leaving you with smooth skin every day.
