South Korean skincare and beauty products, known as K-Beauty, are completely on trend at the moment, and the good news is that the U.S will be seeing many of the products launch at the same time as they do in South Korea. So, no reading about how great the products are online only to have to wait months for a U.S launch or having to spend a fortune on shipping to get your hands on them. Here are some of the most anticipated products that are launching in March 2019.
DearPacker Black Ginseng Gold Mask
Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle? This face mask comes as an easy-to-use sheet for a one-off facial boost, or a sparkly, black, gooey mixture, which is a lot nicer than it sounds. It’s made with real gold, which slows down collagen depletion, increases skin’s elasticity, improves complexion and prevents premature aging, as well as containing black ginseng. Black ginseng is also great for anti-aging and is known for brightening the skin. Overall, this mask will nourish, moisturize and brighten the skin and can be bought for around $30.
Innisfree Vivid Cotton Ink lipstick
Innisfree are launching 13 different colors of matte liquid lipstick, each promising to deliver a rich, highly pigmented color that is lightweight to wear and only needs one layer of application. Innisfree are so confident in these new lipsticks that they named it Cotton Ink because they believe it dries to a “plush cotton” feel for the wearer. Another thing that makes these so great is that they’re retailing for just $12.
Touch In Sol Metallist Sparkling Foiled Eyeshadow
Touch in Sol isn’t just another shimmering eyeshadow on the market, there’s something a bit more special about it. They’ve used diamond and pearl powder for a glitter-like effect that is very lightweight. The colors will change shades depending on how the light hits your eyelids, making it a very unique product. Available colors are Cream Peach, Honey Brown, Golden Tangerine, Sun Aurora, Holo Mulberry Persian Rose and Aurora Taupe for $18 each.
Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Serum
This is part of Sulwhasoo’s new Bloomstay Vitalizing line that is recommended to be used alongside the Bloomstay Vitalizing Water and Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream. The serum on its own will replenish moisture back into the skin thanks to the green plum blossom in it. While this is a promising product, it will set you back around $145, and if you buy all three you’re looking at an additional $155 for the cream and $75 for the water, but they do promise to deeply hydrate and strengthen skin, all with lightweight formulas.
Peach & Lily Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser
While “Power Calm” is an oxymoron, it describes Peach & Lily’s new cleanser perfectly. It gives a very deep, thorough cleansing, but isn’t abrasive or irritating to the skin. The lightweight gel transforms into a milky foam that contains cica and chamomile. Cica has been used for centuries in Korean medicine but has more recently been analyzed to discover its skincare benefits.
It’s used a lot in Korean skincare products as pollution causes many Koreans to have sensitive skin, which cica is great for, as well as correcting skin tone and can firm, repair and soothe skin. You can get your hands on this for $28.
Korean skincare and beauty products are dominating the market this year. Many contain ingredients that are specific to Korea, such as cica and black ginseng, meaning they have something new and unique to offer that could transform your skin and beauty regime into something really special.
