Under the Radar K-Beauty Products To Try
Sure, we've all heard of K-Beauty's most hyped products - COSRX Snail Mucin Essence, Dr Jart Color Correcting Cream and Kahi's Multi Balm - just to name a few. But what about some that aren't so hyped but absolutely deserve to be?
There are plenty of those too!
On episode 206 of the Korean Beauty Show podcast, I’m sharing some of the most underrated K-Beauty products that absolutely deserve pride of place in your beauty cabinet.
Let's take a look!

A favourite of those in the know, APLB Collagen Peptide Moisture Cream is a luxury anti-aging cream infused with hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide. It keeps skin looking smooth, refreshed and plump at every age.
The cream has a thick texture that immediately spreads once applied to the skin. It contains all the ingredients we expect to see in a good anti-aging formula - collagen, peptides, niacinamide, sea buckthorn, hyaluronic acid, adenosine and beta glucan. It even contains a luxe nods to the brand's Korean heritage in the form of lotus flower extract, which helps to care for pores and maintain the skin's barrier.
Another K-Beauty product that consistently gets rave reviews and repeat purchases is this lightweight facial lotion. Designed to replenish dry and mature skin with lasting hydration, it is a retinol product with a difference.
Firstly, Charmzone DeAge RetinQ Emulsion (120ml) enhances elasticity, collagen and elastin. Secondly, it not only smoothes lines and tones skin, but also features a double encapsulated retinol to deliver nutrients directly to sting.
Users love the boost of moisture and plump skin texture it gives.
Another woefully underrated K-Beauty product is this beautifully textured Tosowoong Spot Whitening Vita Clinic Cream.
Not only does it have an absolutely stellar ingredients list it literally transforms the skin with a beautiful buttery texture that targets dark spots.
Unlike many brightening creams, the Vitamin C content in this comes from sea buckthorn extract. It contains 200 times more Vitamin C than apples and 30 more than lemons.
In addition, this cream also contains Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, a stable form of Vitamin that gives faster visible results. It offers a much better stability profile than any known direct-acting form of Vitamin C. The texture is dense and sticky, yet quickly absorbed by the skin without leaving a greasy or heavy feeling.
This has been a favourite of our customers for years but isn't widely talked about in the media.
While it's not under the radar in Korea, this hydrating essence is not widely known overseas. It's making waves because it's perfect for anyone looking for a vegan or snail-free alternative to COSRX Snail Mucin Essence. Mixsoon Bean Essence has a similar texture and offers many of the same benefits as this cult K-Beauty skincare product!
It not only promotes a healthy skin barrier but brightens up the appearance of dull looking skin and boosts elasticity.
Even though Skin79 was the darling of the beauty world in the early 2010s these days, the brand and its BB Creams are rarely talked about. But completely undeservedly so!
In my opinion, these remain some of best BB Cream formulas on the global beauty market. They not only impart a triple effect of high coverage, correcting marks and dark spots along they also provide secondary sun protection. They're perfect for skin with dark spots, pigmentation and aging skin.
I consistently come back to these products even though I try so many new Korean BB Cream releases on the market because they are just so good.
It hasn't reached cult status yet but it definitely deserves it. After all, who doesn't love sugary, cinnamon treats?
Cinnamon Toast Sugar Scrub Foam is a 100% customizable cleanser & exfoliant in one - choose between both at every routine! After cleansing, skin is left refreshed and smooth without irritation. Indulgent cleansing, minus the calories? Yes, please!
2 Products in 1 - 100% Customizable

As a Cleanser: Dissolve the sugar crystals in your palms first, before applying the foam to a wet face. Voila - it's a regular cleanser!
