My Top K-Beauty Products of 2018

Beauty / Nov 29, 2018 / 0 Comments

My top K-Beauty Products of 2018 are tried and tested by me, so you don’t have to bother! Korean skincare and makeup are no longer a cult secret, but the market is so saturated it can be quite a bit to sort through to find what you want. There’s a lot to consider; your skin type, the season, the brand, the price, etc etc. Is the value worth it? Does it do what it says? Does it smell nice? These products I’m about to list are my absolute favorite and they work so well for every skin type! 

… also they’re a great value ;D.

Skinfood Black Sugar Honey Mask

Of course Skinfood would find its way on this list, and hopefully any list really. It’s a great brand for a great price and if’s tried and true. I’m crazy about exfoliating myself so this mask is perfect, but it also leaves it feeling so soft because of the honey. Remember not to get too crazy on exfoliating, just rub gently! I know I get carried away, haha.

Neogen Green Tea Foam Cleanser

I actually first saw this at Sephora and was intrigued but didn’t get around to buying it for a while. It just seemed so simple. Green tea foam. And that’s why it’s so amazing! I love drinking green tea and I’m always happy to have it in my skin care. It’s great for sensitive skin and a light winter cleanser. It might be my newest skincare product that I’m loyal to (until I can’t help but buy the next thing, amirite?)!

Etude House Wine Party Palette

I’m crazy about Etude House and every single palette made. On my recent trip to Tokyo, I bought the Wine Party palette in stores and I was freaking hooked right away. Etude House is great quality for a fraction of the price. The shimmery colors don’t blend as well as high-end Sephora brands obviously, but as long as you use a primer it lasts just as long.

Son & Park Beauty Water

This beauty water is a step similar to essence or a light toner. It’s actually been my all time favorite product for a couple years and I completely swear by it. It’s just really light and fuwa fuwa you know? ;D

Also it’s usually priced around $30 or so, but this thing lasted me almost a whole year so the value sells itself.

innisfree Rice Sheet Mask

Everyone needs sheet masks in their arsenal! There’s quite a number of sheet masks that are selling for waay more than they’re worth, especially considering innisfree is a great brand and you can usually get it on Amazon or Yesstyle for about a dollar a piece. My favorite is the rice because I usually use sheet masks as the moisturizer and brightener part of my regime.

NeoGen Wine Bio-Peel

This bio-peel took some figuring out because the instructions weren’t terribly specific, but it exfoliates via the gauze and the serum. If you just rub it lightly on your skin in circles, keep in on for 30 seconds to a minute and then wash it off, your skin is exfoliated AND weirdly extremely soft! I love using this stuff and there’s a lemon one I have yet to try.

I Dew Care Disco Kitten Mask

Cute name and a cute illuminating diamond peel-off mask! I love this and even though it’s a bit pricier, it does last a crazy amount of uses. It’s very similar to those black peel-off masks that rip off dead skin. So not much to say about it other than if that’s what you’re looking for, this particular one will make your money stretch. Plus it’s sold at Ulta, so if you get your hand on their regular coupons it’s an even better deal!

Aaand there it is! My list of my top K-beauty products of 2018, here to help you on your journey to the fountain of youth! Or, you know, at least prolonging the inevitability of aging. ;D

Honestly though, my favorite part of the day (aside from drinking coffee) is doing face masks and taking care of my skin. I do get lazy sometimes, but it really just feels like self care when I do it. So clean and fresh! What were your favorite k-beauty, or any skincare or makeup product of 2018? I’d love to know!!
