After admiring the innovation of Korean skin care from afar, we are very excited to announce that we are now stockists of three key brands that we think your complexions are going to love. Here’s what you need to know…
By Wishtrend – link
Initially an online space where people could shop their favourite Korean skin care products, Wishtrend created their very own line of exciting formulas in response to an epic amount of demand from their fans, and By Wishtrend was born. Their concise range focuses on the key products and formulas their customers really want to include in their routines, and features only the best quality, non-irritating ingredients to treat everything from pigmentation to blocked pores.
Must-Try Product: The Pure Vitamin C 21.5 Advanced Serum is the perfect antioxidant serum. It contains 21.5% Vitamin C, which they believe is the optimum amount to noticeably improve the quality of the skin without causing irritation, alongside Hyaluronic Acid to brighten, nourish and smooth the skin.
Klairs – link
Simple, basic, mild, with a focus on skin health, Klairs pride themselves on their universal range of soothing and restorative formulas. Instead of rushing out large volumes of product, Klairs prefer to take their time when it comes to product development and dedicate as much time as they can to creating the most beneficial formula. Each product in the range works to maintain a strong and healthy skin barrier, and uses ingredients to support the skin for the long-term (you won’t find any crazy promises of instant and dramatic results here) to help it feel more balanced, supple and smooth.
Must-Try Product: There are so many great products in the Klairs range, but the Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask is definitely a must-try thanks to its unique pudding texture and multi-functional benefits. It can be used as a treatment mask, a moisturiser and an overnight sleeping pack, and works to deeply hydrate and plump the skin.
Leegeehaam – link
Created by three dermatologists, Leegeehaam was the first Korean cosmeceutical skin care range and is one of the leaders in acne treatments in the country. The impressive range includes traditional formulas – such as moisturising creams and facial toners – alongside the more innovative textures and products that are synonymous with Korean skin care such as sheet masks, hydrating foams and essences. The entire Leegeehaam range is also split into four categories: Life, Grow, Hope and Master, with each one comprising of products created to address a different skin need, from acne to dullness.
Must-Try Product: Formulated with Matcha Green Tea from Jeju Island, the Grow Matcha Clay Pack makes an amazing weekend treat for congested skin – think of it like a detoxifying green juice for your complexion.
