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:
