There ain’t no party like a skincare party!
Korean beauty, otherwise known as K-beauty, is showing no sign of slowing and for good reason. These formidable forces in the industry are changing the game one ingredient at a time. And if the idea of slathering snail mucin on your face doesn’t scare you, expect glowing results effective immediately.
From online shops such as Peach & Lily to mega-stores like Sephora, these brands are becoming mainstream – and fast. Simply put, our skincare regimes have no excuse not to add K-beauty into the mix.
But if you can’t commit to a multi-step skincare routine, we encourage you to try just one. Check out six of the Korean beauty products stores can’t keep stocked – seriously.
