Have You Discovered K-Beauty Yet?

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been obsessing  on my skin care a lot lately. I’m constantly  battling against Summer’s determination to ruin my looks with sweat and oil. Now don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but I do NOT care for the swampy swamp-bod that I’m constantly subjected to.

 

What’s incredible  about Korean beauty is its ability to give you that dewy look without the sticky look, two totally different things! Anyway, here are some awesome products that you should most certainly purchase if you’re constantly chasing your pores clear.

SON & Park Beauty Water, $20

 

SON & Park Beauty Water 340ml, 11.5oz
This is a magical skin juice — it’s toner and a micellar water. It’s literally a  beauty water. As in, water that makes your skin beautiful! It’s packed with Willow bark extract and papaya enzymes that gently exfoliate  dead skin cells, revealing your beauty underneath.

 

[Cosrx] Acne Pimple Master Patch , $5

[Cosrx] Acne Pimple Master Patch 24EA
These hydrocolloidal adhesive patches suck all the stuff out of the ruptured pore overnight, turning it white — a signal that it’s cooked and your pore is totally clear and no longer raised. ( Works best on an already messed with pimple)

 

Too cool for school Coconut Milky Mist, $25

Too cool for school Coconut Milky Mist (80ml 2.70 oz) 2016 Summer New

The secret to dewy skin is to literally spray it with a hydrating mist. This one has coconut water — a preferred facial summer beverage.

 

IPKN New York Flash Cream Radiant Primer SPF, $22

IPKN New York Flash Cream Radiant Primer SPF 15 40ml/1.35oz

 

Another way to create a glow is with  glow pellets, like the microscopic ones in this primer. It’s basically a strobe cream, but slightly more subtle, just giving your complexion refreshed look that blurs away any tired sallow stuff.

 

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule, $25

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule
This  concentrated serum is chock full of  fermented yeast and probiotics.

Laneige BB Cushion Pore Blur, $30

[LANEIGE] "NEW2016" BB Cushion_Pore Control 15g+Refill 15g SPF50+PA+++ / No.21 Beige

Cushion compacts are great as a means of complexion coverage AND sun protection. Laneige’s are top of the cushion game, and they’ve just expanded their shade range. This one leaves a semi-matte, soft-focus finish — excellent for blurring pores and  eliminating oil.

 

Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum, $100

Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum 1.68 oz
This product is basically a light serum-moisturizer hybrid. It has all the concentrated powers of a serum, but in the body of a moisturizer. It’s very light and  creamy and absorbs right away with chaga mushroom extract to deeply hydrate.

 

NOONI Advanced Repair Therapy Radiance Peel Pads 70pcs acne control, blackhead removal, skin exfoliation, $25

NOONI Advanced Repair Therapy Radiance Peel Pads 70pcs acne control, blackhead removal, skin exfoliation
Nothing is better than  a good peel. These pads make exfoliating a breeze. Infused with AHAs and BHAs, it’s pretty much like a pore polish after you cleanse (once or twice a day, up to you!) so the rest of your skin-care products can really soak all up in there.

Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh, $43

Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh, 1.7 Ounce
This lightweight moisturizer is like the perfect date: considerate, not clingy, and smells nice. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy at all, but does feel…super hydrated.
