South Korea is the biggest buzzword in beauty. Over the past decade, the country has outpaced others (*cough* France *cough*) when it comes to skincare innovations. Here are some of my favourite beauty trends inspired by Korea’s flourishing beauty counters.
Beyond the Miracle Hand Cream, $9, ecobeyond.ca.South Korean eco-beauty brand Beyond is now available in Canada at Fruits & Passion stores. We love the adorable packaging, especially this polar bear–shaped hand cream that contains nourishing snow lotus extract.
BOSCIA Konjac Cleansing Sponge With Bamboo Charcoal, $22, sephora.ca.
I've proclaimed my love for this product before on the blog. When it comes to cleansers, it get's the coveted game changes title. For 1,500 years, the konjac root has been an Asian beauty staple. That’s what this foam-like cleansing tool is made from, along with a sprinkle of bamboo charcoal that helps absorb toxins and impurities.
Shu Uemura Depsea Hydrability Intense Moisture Filling Mask, six sachets for $68, shuuemura.ca.
We’ve professed our love for cloth masks in the past, but this Japanese treatment is on par with Korean exports. Enriched with carrageenan algae extract, a natural wonder found in deep seas, it instantly plumps and soothes dehydrated skin.
