Top 5 Affordable Korean Beauty Products You Should Be Using

K-beauty focuses on clarifying, toning and applying layers of hydration to achieve glowing skin. This glow is often referred to as ‘glass’ skin which is, in essence, clear naturally dewy skin. The main difference between American beauty products and Korean beauty products is that Korean beauty products generally contain more natural ingredients. Also, Korean beauty products focus on hydration. K-beauty products have filled the shelves at Sephora and drugstores and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Here are some affordable K-beauty products we can’t get enough of.

LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask

LANEIGE Water Sleeping mask delivers intense hydration to your skin while you sleep. The unique formula features Hydro Ionized Mineral Water, perfect for treating dryness. This lightweight gel mask can also help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can reduce the appearance of dull and uneven skin with consistent use.  This mask contains Hyaluronic Acid which provides hydration and is free of parabens, phthalates, and mineral oil. Your skin will thank you!


Sheet Mask

Sheet Masks are soaked with concentrated serum, which consists of many beneficial ingredients. The reason why it works differently than serums alone is that the sheet prevents quick evaporation of the liquid. This means that your skin is lathered in beneficial ingredients for a longer period of time. Sheet masks outperforming the effects of the traditional serum-type skincare after just one use. The best part is that sheet masks are super affordable. Basic Korean sheet masks range from three to five dollars but The Face Shop has lower prices and these sheet masks contain herbs and plants that are beneficial to the skin.
