5. KAHI Cosmetics - Kim Go Eun

In recent K-dramas, we often spot a pink beauty stick carried by one of the female characters and they would often apply it on their skin before that moment. It's actually from KAHI Cosmetics, an up-and-coming (it was established in 2020) brand that represents today's K-beauty through products that you can take anywhere. Ingredients are sourced from Jeju Island for that high-quality skincare offer.
