These Are the Best K-Beauty Products You Can Shop on Amazon

Published

on

For years, we’ve sought out Korean beauty treatments and practices in a quest to discover the secret to more clear, supple skin. Thankfully, there is a crop of Amazon Korean beauty finds available to shop as the tried-and-true beauty products that have emerged stateside.

Think intensive hydration and glass skin powered by innovative formulations featuring ingredients from snail mucin to royal jelly and centella asiatica (an Asian-grown herb known for its anti-inflammatory benefits). And through social media sharing or stars like Irene Kim and Jeon Somi revealing their Korean beauty favorites, we’re eagerly leaning into the beauty rituals that Koreans hold close.

There are cult-favorite formulas like Laneige’s nourishing lip mask, or the Cosrx snail mucin-infused essence, which went viral on TikTok. Or perhaps, a more hidden gem like Zeroid’s skin-balancing toner. Either way, you’re sure to discover a product to suit a variety of skin conditions and concerns. Below, here are the best Amazon Korean beauty finds to shop this Amazon Prime Day 2022.

Glow Recipe

From Glow Recipe, expect not only thoughtful skin-care packed with fruit-based, clean formulas, but also what the brand describes as “sensorial self-care moments.” Founded by Christine Chang and Sarah Lee took inspiration from their Korean heritage to create its lineup in 2017. Now, you’ll see some of its most notable products, like the Watermelon Glow Dew Drops, trending on TikTok as a skin-care makeup hybrid that reveals glossy, glowing skin. Or, we might reach for its Eye Sleeping Mask formulated with avocado, encapsulated retinol, coffeeberry, and niacinamide to de-puff, moisturize, and brighten the under-eye.

Zeroid

Launched in 2002, Zeroid is a Korean beauty brand that looks to treat skin conditions through science-backed solutions. In Kim’s installment of Vogue’s beauty secrets, you see the star applying a toner by Zeroid as the second step in her skin-care routine—noting that she’s been using the brand for years. While the toner works to balance oily and troubled skin types through a blend of salicylic acid and zinc pyrrolidone carboxylic acid, the brand’s lineup also includes restorative treatments like the Richenic Cream, which use natural moisturizing factors, urea, and hyaluronic acid, to help strengthen the skin barrier.

Cosrx

Jun Sang Hun founded Cosrx in 2013 to help consumers find solutions to an array of skin conditions—pairing “cosmetics” with prescription-esque formulations. Somi reaches for its Full Fit Propolis Synergy Toner post-cleanse—a skin-soothing agent infused with both propolis and honey extract. Otherwise, there’s the Snail Mucin Repair Cream loved for its hydrating and reparative benefits.

Belif

At the heart of Belif is the centuries-old apothecary herbalist Duncan Napier’s nature-based philosophies. Plus, Belif’s natural-based formulas work in tangent with Korean skin-care science. Nowadays, we look to the brand for ultra-lightweight yet intensely soothing, moisturizing formulas. For example, its Aqua Bomb boasts a gel-cream texture that feels cool even on hot summer skin. Eyes get a dose of hydration too with its Eye Bomb that plumps skin and reduces elasticity.

Mixsoon

With Mixsoon, once one understands their skin type, they can properly treat conditions with single extract ingredients. So, its lineup is composed of 100% undiluted singular ingredients, so you create a customized skin treatment each day. Need a hydration surge? Consider adding the brand’s hyaluronic acid serum, beloved by singer Jeon Somi, to your routine. Or perhaps a gentle exfoliant is more your priority? If so, this essence features a blend of beans, pears, and pomegranate to reveal smooth, supple skin.

AmorePacific

Through AmorePacific, Sung-Hwan Suh sought to share the power of Korean botanicals— specifically green tea sourced from Jeju Island. Thus, you’ll find the powerful antioxidant at the heart of its lineup. There’s the powder-to-foam cleanser that gently exfoliates, leaving skin smooth and even or the Cushion Compact Foundation that provides light to medium coverage while shielding against damaging sun rays.

Hanskin

Hanskin creates natural-based, science-backed, sensitive skin-friendly formulations aiming to make it as easy as possible for one to understand their skin health. Take a glance into its collection to discover easy-to-understand, glow-boosting products that make caring for your skin uncomplicated. While its eye serum awakens tired eyes thanks to a blend of hyaluronic acid, moss extract, and centella asiatica, the BHA-infused Pore Cleansing Oil works wonders to gently exfoliate and prevent blackheads.

Sulwhasoo

Holistic beauty is at the heart of Sulwhasoo’s philosophy—leaning into an inside-out approach to treating skin conditions, but also signs of aging. With the creation of its first product in 1966 by Suh Sung-whan, the brand has since expanded to include an assortment of skin-balancing and harmonizing favorites. Slough away makeup and impurities with its gentle cleansing foam packed with brightening citrus peel and chestnut shell extract. Alternatively, apply the gingseng oil-infused Concentrated Renewal Serum to improve texture and bounciness.

Laneige

Laneige, which translates to “the snow” in French, was founded in 1994 to deliver your skin’s hydrating skin salves for a healthy, glowing complexion—though the brand offers antiaging and brightening solutions, too. Few lip treatments are as notorious as Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask—a hydrating overnight treatment that many even reach for throughout the day. Or, its more lightweight Lip Glowy Balm that’s more compact to stash in your bag.

Beauty of Joseon

Beauty of Joseon uses the ancient Korean herbal approach to wellness called Hanbang to reinterpret traditional methodology in contemporary ways with modern ingredients—looking to address signs of aging, damaged skin barriers, and overall moisture. There’s the Glow Serum which pairs propolis extract, niacinamide, and beta hydroxy acids to control sebum production and quell inflammation. Alternatively, the recently reformulated Dynasty Cream boasts brightening, smoothing, and anti-inflammatory benefits without irritating even sensitive skin.

Innisfree

Founded in 2000 by Suh Sungwhan, Innisfree looks to offer beauty solutions powered by ingredients sourced from Korea’s Jeju Island sans harmful chemicals and preservatives. One of our favorites is a 2021 TikTok discovery: the Dewy Glow Jelly Cream lauded for its remarkably lightweight, jelly texture infused with cherry blossom extracts and niacinamide. Otherwise, we’re partial to its water-based SPF that also delivers lightweight hydration and glow without a white cast. 

Neogen Dermalogy

Neogen Dermalogy is all about utilizing dermaceutical research to inform and treat an array of skin concerns—infused with exotic botanicals that may be less common stateside. Take your pick of sun-protecting solutions like its Airy Sunscreen packed with a lightweight blend of 20 plant extracts, or a hydrating and brightening essence containing more than 93% naturally fermented ingredients leaving you with glowing skin. 

Moonshot

On the makeup front, however, Moonshot is known for its cool-girl formulas that won’t break the bank. Think vibrant pigments, minimalist finishes, and innovative skin care for the ultimate base. We have our eyes on the Multi Protection SPF that provides only sun protection but even a sebum absorption system that helps control oils. Then, perhaps round out the look with one of its warm matte-velvet lipsticks.

Klavuu

Klavuu looks to marry the power of natural pearl and marine extracts with a clean, scientific approach to beauty. Expect brightening and hydration benefits in all of its lineup (thanks to the pearl extract). The Green Pearlsation Serum utilizes PHAs and purity tea tree extract to gently exfoliate, while the Lip Sleeping Pack features a blend of avocado, sweet almond, and apricot oils to soften and moisturize your pout.

‘Glamour’ Intern Mia Uzzell Is Obsessed With This Curl Gel for Finger Coils

Published

on

I hate to admit it, but I never really saw my natural hair during wash days growing up. By three-years-old, I had a relaxer and was committed to Sunday hot comb rituals, where my grandma warmed the sizzling tool on the stovetop to press out my roots. In middle school, extensions – haphazardly glued to my scalp—become my staple look to blend in with my predominantly white competitive cheer team. When I got to high school, lace front wigs were plastered across the front of my hairline twice a month, so I could always have the latest hairstyles.

Growing up in the South in a family of cosmetologists, weaves felt like a rite of passage. There was a pervasive internalized belief that Black natural hair was unmanageable, had no versatility, and couldn’t exist without being incessantly straightened. With every after-hours hair appointment in my family’s living room and 5 A.M. maintenance routine ahead of school, I wrestled with the concept that my natural hair was unworthy. 

When I got to college three years ago, I experienced the reckoning many Black women face with their natural hair: The infamous big chop. In my boyfriend’s college apartment, we took a pair of clippers and buzzed my hair down to a close-cropped cut. My neglected strands and years of exhausting insecurities fell in piles across the floor. 

Since then, my natural hair journey has come with its share of mental roadblocks. I relented from intimidating consumerism, which suggests that natural hair requires shelves of products. I realized how I’ve used protective styles to conceal rather than to protect, and had to shake my belief that my short 4C hair is the “ugly stage” of achieving a sky-scraping ‘fro. Wash days at the kitchen sink, often accompanied by my boyfriend’s reassuring assistance, have become a revolutionary act of self-love and a reminder that I can vault every challenge in this new phase of my life.

Below, the tried-and-true products that have helped me along the winding journey of loving my hair in its natural state.

Pre-Shampoo

I have low porosity hair, and learned that saturation and absorption of moisture is difficult along my hair shafts, which was paramount to understanding my wash day routine. The cleansing properties of most shampoos were often too harsh and left my hair feeling dry, even post-deep conditioning. Atop my stove, I melt an eyeballed mixture of shea butter and aloe vera gel fresh from my household plant. I apply the warm mixture to my hair and detangle it from tip to root with a Pattern Beauty’s wide-tooth comb. Overnight, the concoction lathers my strands to revitalize my natural oils and creates the perfect barrier to maintain luster and sheen for the next day’s wash.

Shampooing

I quickly discovered during shampoo sessions that I am, indeed, what my mother would call “tender-headed.” Years of unaddressed split ends mean my coils have been weakened and are susceptible to tangling into knots. This is where positive affirmations come in, since my knots trigger old emotions that make me feel that my hair is unnecessarily demanding. I’m often reminded of the common Southern saying “You wash clothes, you shampoo hair.” In essence, it means that hair is complex and requires its own method of care.

Back to Basics: 7 Types of High Heels Every Shoe Collection Should Contain

Published

on

Out of all the finishing touches to add to an outfit, nothing brings joy like a beautiful shoe, especially the best high heels for women. Whether you’re reaching for a sky-high platform à la D’Accori’s trendy towering sandals or going the pared-back route in Gucci’s timeless slingback kittens, high heels have the ability to elevate any outfit.

Something as simple as a pair of wide-leg jeans and a tank top instantly turns into a polished work of art with a little added height. Follow Peter Mulier of Alaïa’s lead and elevate your favorite denim pants with sharp pointed-toe pumps. Or go the Bottega Veneta route with a tall, sharp pair of boots styled with denim this fall.

On the other side of the spectrum, the best high heels for women are, of course, always fitting for dressier moments too. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a dance floor-worthy mule for the next wedding you attend or a party pump to dazzle in while on vacation. You’ll find those head-turning options and so much more below.

An elegant slingback instantly elevates your look, whether you’re headed to the office in Aeyede’s cap-toe version or to a formal event in Gucci’s logo-emblazoned design.

A chunky wedge will be your best friend on days you want to add a few inches without sacrificing comfort. Serena Uziyel and Reformation make timeless styles. While Alaïa and Amina Muaddi modernize the wedge silhouette.
