Make a foray into quality skincare with these Korean goodies

K- beauty (aka South Korea based beauty brands) soared at a time when there was much less awareness about it. Only top YouTube influencers and the well-travelled ones got a taste of the magic potions. But cut to some years later, K-beauty products became a sort of a phenomenon that successfully introduced Asian skincare and beauty to the world. Even Sephora now has a separate aisle dedicated to it! Known for their advanced ingredients and minimalistic packaging, these products have been a cult favourite amongst celebrities - beauty mogul Michelle Phan couldn’t stop raving about its many benefits. If you are someone who has gone past the ‘makeup obsession’ and are dedicated to quality skincare, here are some fail-safe K-beauty products that are creating ripples in the beauty ocean for their avant-garde compositions and of course, their loyal fan base. Let's get to know about the ones we absolutely love.

Believe us, skincare has nothing to do with age-the earlier you introduce it to your regimen, the better your skin will be in the future. While ageing is a natural process, you can certainly slow it down. The strength of the History of Whoo’s Hwanyu essence lies in its magical properties that literally erases fine lines and wrinkles from the root. So whether you are a 20-something or are someone who has just about noticed the first bout of wrinkles on your skin – the Hwanyu essence is formulated to not only give a natural boost to your skin, it can also make your skin upto 10 years younger! It comes enriched with a fusion of modern science and the beauty secrets of Korea’s royal court to strengthen, revive, repair, and protect the skin. It is believed that the essence controls the wave of Yin and Yang (cosmetic dual forces) and helps balance it out, thereby reversing the visible signs of ageing. Buy now
