The Koreans are known for their beauty innovation and more and more the big western brands have looked to Korean Beauty for skin care and makeup ideas. Korean beauty products put the fun in functional.
You can be a #makeupmaven or the leader of the #getupandgo club and there will still be a K Beauty (Korean beauty) product that you will love. Koreans are obsessed with skin care, so that is number one. It’s not all creams, serums and lotions, Korean beauty is also known for imaginative packaging that is bold and unique as well as creative product delivery systems.
There is an appreciation for the ancient ingredient wisdom, that is also coupled with a desire for innovation in Korean products, that blends the old with the new, from and ingredient listing to philosophical values.
Here are some examples of K Beauty:
1. TonyMoly Minibling Pocket Hair Pack
No-fuss leave-in treatment hydrates and conditions your damaged ends so hair looks and feels smooth and silky. The convenient packaging provides concentrated care for the ends of your hair while making it easy to use so you don’t have to deal with messy, runny formulas.
2. Holika Holika PIG NOSE CLEAR BLACKHEAD 3-STEP KIT STRONG
How to use:
- After cleansing, place step 1 on nose and let sit for 15 minutes. Remove from nose and wet nose to prepare to step 2.
- Apply step 2 to wet nose and wait 15 minutes or until completely dried. Remove carefully from the outer edges to the center.

I had to include this, primarily for the name, but also because it epitomises my point about Korean skin care.
