In the constantly evolving world of K-Beauty, it can sometimes be intimidating to know what to pick, let alone how much to spend! There’s nothing worse than shelling out the big bucks on something new and feeling disappointed.
Our job here at STYLE STORY is to help you style the perfect products and routine for both your skin and your budget.
With that in mind, we’re going to have a look today at some of our favourite tried and true Korean Beauty products that won’t break the bank!
Let's be honest - we'd pay pretty much anything to say goodbye to pesky pimples faster.
Thankfully, with Subi's Perfect Pimple Patch we don't have to pay the earth.
A steal at only $11 for 18 patches, these luxury patches are the thinnest, most invisible options on the market. Made with hydrocolloid and zero added ingredients (making them perfect for sensitive skin) these truly are a class above.
If you get pimples in hard-to-reach places (like the side of the nose or around your mouth) then these are your patches. The thinness, stickiness and absorptive powers of Subi's patches means they stay in place long enough to effectively tackle the pimples that other patches can't.
If you don't have a lot of money to shell out on a toner, then Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner is a great option for dry, sensitive or easily irritated skin.
While Pyunkang Yul's packaging might not be the most robust, the formula itself is *chef's kiss*.
It contains 91.3% milk vecht root, which is full of skin-beneficial betaine and minerals.
Not only is it one of STYLE STORY's all-time best-selling products it's also a veritable bargain. Firstly, it is ideal for people with over-active oil glands and acne prone skin. Secondly, it helps to balance oil and water levels in the skin. This may assist to prevent breakouts. Score!
Another line formulated for teens and 20s is Etude House. The brand's Soon Jung Cleanser is ideal for younger skin types because it is formulated with minimal ingredients. It's perfect for those dealing with breakouts and compromised skin barriers.
We love that it skips out on potential irritants like synthetic fragrance, mineral oil or parabens because these can irritate damaged skin.
Another brand never to be overlooked when it comes to budget K-Beauty is Skinfood.
One of the brand's OG lines is the Egg White line and this Pore Mask is a classic pore-refining mask.It is made with real egg white extract that deeply penetrates the pores to remove pore-clogging oil.
Would you believe that this was one of the first products ever stocked on STYLE STORY all the way back in 2014?!
It's a cult favourite because it not only tightens enlarged pores but it also minimises their appearance and regulates excessive sebum. In addition, the simple but effective formula is ideal for those with very oily skin. It is also perfect for those who live in tropical climates with high humidity.
Talk about beauty on a budget!
