8 Life-Changing Korean Beauty Items You Need, Right Now

It sounds definitely tempting to cuddle up for the whole season, but that doesn't mean we can't have some beauty fun while at it! There's a tendency to go for darker, earthier shades when it comes to make-up, but who said we can't play around with some glitter, color, and shine? Whether you're a makeup freak, a skincare devotee, or both, we're putting together a list of seasonal musts so we get ready for the upcoming spring.


1. Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence

The fast-absorbing formula consists of 90% fermented yeast extract, and Himalayan purple barley. The two star ingredients combined work to even out the skin tone, restore the elasticity of the skin, reduce pigmentation and plump skin. Youth's fountain may be fictitious, but it will make you look fresh as ever.


2. Son & Park Beauty Water

The formula combines lavender water, rose water, extract of orange fruit, willow bark, and extract of papaya to prevent signs of ageing, sweep away dead skin cells, and hydration.


3. TonyMoly I'm Real Mask Sheet

The sheets are soaked in a hydrating essence which, depending on the "flavor," also targets other specific skin care concerns— from tight skin to congested pores — and there's always enough left over to apply to your neck and chest. Pro tip: keep them in the fridge-when you put them on, they will feel even more refreshing.


4. MAKEP:REM Safe Me. Relief Moisture Green Ampoule Serum  

This particular serum (or ampoule, which is basically the term K-beauty for an overloaded serum) works to reinforce the natural protective barrier of the skin and soothe irritation, making it particularly beneficial for dry or damaged skin.


5. Mamonde Petal Spa Oil To Foam Cleanser

This Mamonde oil-to-foam cleanser is supposed to be a one-stop answer to double-cleaning, starting as a silky oil that grabs makeup, SPF, and grime, and then emulsifying into a milk that cleanses the skin without stripping it of moisture.


6. Solved Skincare Coconut Oil Cleansing Pads 

They are two-sided travel-friendly pads that can tackle waterproof mascara, long-wearing lipstick and even sunscreen without missing a beat.


7. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

"It retains the elasticity of my skin and rehydrates it while I'm sleeping. The effect occurs as soon as you apply it. I've been using it for more than a year now and I've never been disappointed ." It also contains Calming Sleepscent, which is infused with relaxing ingredients such as orange flower, rose, and sandalwood to sleep.


8. Etude House Dear Darling Tints

These gel lip tints barely feel there on the lips, last all day, are legit transfer-proof once they dry down. They might fade later, but, given the nature of the watery formula, it still looks amazing.
