Now, let’s indulge in 5 of the hottest Korean beauty brands.
- Tony Moly (age range 18-25, price range $)
The hipster brand for a younger demographic, Tony Moly is one of those privileged brand that is available at Sephora. So now you know it is not hard to get your hands on it. After Etude, Tony Moly tempts your shopaholic nature with their cutesy packaging. Have you checked out their Panda’ Dream Brightening Base & Bbo Bbo Lip Balm? It is cheap, cute and perfect for teens, though the brand tries to target all ages.
- Dr. Jart (age range 24 – 35, price range $$)
Already known for their ultra-famous, Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm, Dr. Jart is a mid-range brand comparable to the premium Tarte and Smashbox. It started as a drugstore brand in Korea but its amazing skincare and beauty products made it soar pretty high. Their famous BB cream provides good coverage and hydrating finish.
- Amorepacific (age range for 35 – 45, price range $$$)
One of the biggest and most successful Korean skincare brands, Amorepacific is carried by major US stores including Sephora and Nordstrom. The brand is popular for using pure Asian ingredients like green tea, bamboo and red ginseng. It majorly targets female audience of 35 and older. Their Future Response Age Defense Creme is the answer to your aging woes, the gentle formula perfect for women in their 20s and above. The most popular brand of facial mask is “Mediheal”, which I also recommend. However, the best selling facial mask outside of Korea is “Olive Young”. Brand is comparable to SK II.
- Belif (age range for 24-35, price range $$)
Belif is one of the up and coming brand, seen most commonly at Korean airports and now also available at Sephora. They are known for using the purest ingredients. If you are a Clinique, Kiehls or Shiseido fan, you are bound to love Belif. You need to check out their The True Cream Aqua Bomb, a lightweight gel-like cream that minimizes the appearance of pores and provides maximum hydration. Brand is comparable to Fresh, Origins, and Kiehls.
- Club Clio (age range 20-35, price range $)
Club Clio mainly focuses on makeup, their quality and prices are very similar to the cult-favourite MAC while offering products in vivid colors with great color payoff. Their Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner has already become the talk of the town.
