These are bestsellers in the beauty world and I am sure that you will fall in love with them too.
Top Rated Korean Skincare Products Of 2022
Topping the list is our most favorite Cosrx Snail Essence that provides intense hydration and helps protect skin from moisture loss. Moreover, it soothes skin after a breakout, helps improve damaged skin and fades acne scars too. The best part is, you can use it with or without actives as an everyday toner or serum.
I prefer to wash my face and apply two to three pumps on damp skin. It makes my skin so plump and nourished as if I have applied layers and layers of hydrators. It suits all skin types including sensitive skin and works for every age group so grab yours now.
I think I’ve mentioned this Vitamin C Serum in all my recent blogs because this is the best discovery of my Korean skincare journey. The benefits of Klairs Vitamin C Serum are numerous as it not only brightens your complexion, but also improves dull skin, evens out skin tone and fades acne over time.
Just apply 2-3 drops on your cleansed & dry face. Then layer it with a moisturizer and sunscreen. You can also skip your moisturizer as it feels a little oily so that’s totally your call. It gets oxidized easily so I would suggest you store it in its original packaging away from direct light or in a refrigerator.
The Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel is a lightweight moisturizing sunscreen with Centella Asiatica and 8 types of hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin. It is very lightweight sunscreen that leaves no white cast and blends without any hustle. This is a broad-spectrum physical sunscreen that protects against UVA & UVB filters & is ideal for sensitive skin & pregnant women.
I would highly recommend trying this sunscreen and don’t forget the three-finger rule and reapplication every three hours.
Acne, Congested pores and Blackheads are gone!! Yes, you heard it right. The COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is a gentle yet effective exfoliant (toner) that contains 4% natural BHA aka Salicylic acid. It penetrates deep into the pores and helps clear clogged pores while gently exfoliating dead skin cells, giving the skin its natural glow. It not only gets rid of blackheads and excess sebum but also helps with active acne. I call it liquid gold as it actually does what it claims. You can also use it a spot treatment on an active acne for fast healing.
It is to be used twice a week at night on dry skin (Sensitive skin people can start from once a week). Remember, don’t use any other actives on the same day otherwise you will end up irritating your skin.
I’m From Rice toner moisturizes and brightens the skin. This toner is contains 77.78% rice extract to hydrate and brighten dull, irritated skin. Rice extracts brighten up the complexion and this toner does just that while also rejuvenating dull skin. It has a lightweight milky texture but it hydrates the skin intensely so don’t overdo it and use a lesser amount to see how it works for you. This one is Vegan, Alcohol Free, Fragrance Free and cruelty free.
This moisturizer has a dense gooey texture that contains 93% snail mucin, that hydrates and strengthens the skin barrier. I have had very sensitive and acne prone skin but these snail products from Cosrx have transformed my skin.
This is, in fact, one of the best moisturizers I’ve ever used. And it can be used daily with or without actives in all the seasons so what are you all waiting for? Try this and thank me later.
Mandelic acid is basically a type of AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) which is derived from Almonds. It has a larger molecular size than other exfoliants. However it is mild and suits the most sensitive skin too.
It helps to exfoliate dead skin cells and promotes skin cell turnover, lightens dark spots, pigmentation, fights skin ageing and results in brighter and even-toned skin.
It also contains Panthenol, Centella Asiatica Extract and Beta-Glucan to soothe and moisturize the skin even after exfoliation. I have been using this for many years now and I can ensure its efficacy so If you want to start your exfoliation journey for glowing skin, you are at the right place.
If you are suffering from Rosacea or Red irritated skin, this is your savior. Enriched with Guaiazulene, Centella asiatica and Hyaluronic acid to name a few, this thick blue moisturizer is definitely a multi-purpose cream for me. You can use it as a calming sleeping mask, a spot treatment on redness caused by acne or a gentle soothing moisturizer for healthy & clear skin.
I usually don’t use it daily because it’s very thick and might get too sticky for oily skin in summers so I love using it as a sleeping mask once or twice a week at night. This helps repair damaged and over exfoliated skin because hey! Who doesn’t get overwhelmed with chemical exfoliators?!
This essence is consists of a single ingredient – Mugwort. Mugwort is famous for its soothing and detoxifying properties. The texture is very light, water like and runny, which sinks into the skin in seconds and leaves it soft and soothed.
This product is very effective for treating troubled and irritated skin. Also, you can either use this as a toner or as an essence. Just take a few drops and gently press it on your face & neck. It will calm down the acne and provide hydration to the dull & dehydrated skin. If you are looking out for a lightweight, detoxifying and soothing essence, here is your pick!
Last on the list is a toner that is enriched with the power house of hydration i.e. Hyaluronic Acid. The Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Toner helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. Hydrated skin leads to increased skin cell production, as the skin isn’t busy fighting dehydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells. This toner is suitable for daily use and works best on damp skin.
I hope you have got your right picks according to the skin concerns. All the products mentioned above are highly ranked in the Korean as well as Indian Market and are suitable for the most sensitive skin too. Buy them without a second thought. Till then, stay glowing!
