Ever since hallyu, or the massive wave of all things Korean, consumers have also begun incorporating Korean beauty products in their skincare routines. The cute packaging is one thing to admire, but the promise of having “glass skin” makes K-beauty hard to pass up. That's why The SM Store makes it a point to bring K-beauty items within reach through their #SMRealBeauty campaign. Below are must-haves you need to check out:
1. AHC The Pure Real Eye Cream
With a nutrient-enriched, anti-aging formula, this eye cream helps hydrate and restore skin elasticity around the delicate eye area to reduce puffiness and the appearance of wrinkles. It has an ultrafine microemulsion system that helps break down active ingredients into micro-particles for better absorption into the skin.
Apply it after using toner during your morning and evening routine. Simply pat it with your ring finger around the eye area—you can apply it all over your face, too, to enjoy its potent actives.
2. Banila Co It Radiant CC Cream SPF 30
Banila Co products have a glowing reputation of winning beauty awards both locally and internationally. Its CC Cream helps you achieve your glass skin dreams with the ability to smoothen and even out skin tone, correct dullness and redness, and minimize the appearance of pores. It also provides medium coverage with a light formula that feels smooth and velvety when applied.
After your morning skincare routine, dot your face with the CC cream then pat gently onto your skin using a makeup sponge. You can apply foundation right after if you feel you want more coverage.
3. Laneige BB Cushion Anti-Aging SPF 50+
Well-hydrated skin has always been a priority for Laneige when it creating its products—including its BB powder. It’s formulated to help diminish micro-fine bumps and fine wrinkles, making skin look smooth, firm, and glowing.
Apply on your face with the powder puff, and use gentle sweeping motions moving outward. Dab gently to adhere to the skin, and apply more if needed.
4. Dear, Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask
This beauty item works in three ways: as a face mask, a sleeping pack, and a moisturizer. Its pudding-like consistency can help brighten skin, soothe inflammation, control oil production, and promote skin regeneration.
Apply the product as a moisturizer after cleansing and toning. You can also combine it with an essence or cream to use as a sleeping pack, or simply brush it on as a face mask.
5. Espoir Pro Tailor Foundation
This foundation provides medium coverage with a sheer and hydro-radiant finish—radiant being the operative term for glass skin. It can also help brighten your skin tone and keep your face looking and feeling fresh, especially on days when your skin feels extra dry and dull.
Apply a few drops around your face and spread it outward using a foundation brush.
