K-Beauty 2021 Christmas Guide
If you’ve popped into the supermarket, the chemist or, well, anywhere recently, you’ve probably realised that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Here at the STYLE STORY office, we’ve got the tree tinselled, Bublé blasting and, most importantly, your shopping sorted!
With the help of your voting in our Best Of K-Beauty Awards we have compiled a list of the best gifts to give this season.
The Jelly Ko collection.
Jelly Ko products combine clinically proven ingredients with deliciously decadent formulas, oh, and their Bubble Tea Steam Cream took out "Best K-Beauty Product of the Year" as well as "Best K-Beauty Moisturiser".
Did we mention Beauty Expert Leigh Campbell of You Beauty fame also loves it?
The Cherry Blossom Sleeping Mask is equally delectable and is an awesome product to introduce to your loved ones. Sleeping Masks work while you sleep so you don’t have to! They ensure you wake up with hydrated, plump, and happy skin.
Both Jelly Ko products are also packed to the brim with awesome anti-ageing ingredients like Niacinimide and Adenosine making them perfect for ageing skin….but maybe don’t highlight that fact to your Mother-In-Law…or do… whatever works for you because the skincare will work for her!
The Subi Double Cleansing Duo.
We love our Bestie’s and we know they deserve better than harsh makeup wipes that damage their skin and the environment! They also deserve glowing skin.
Life’s better when you’re together and that is exactly why we love the Korean Double Cleanse Method.
Not sure what the Double Cleanse Method is?
Let’s catch you (and your bestie up).
It’s 2021 and our night-time routine now begins with an initial cleanse using an oil or cleansing balm (which gently and effectively removes our makeup) before we follow it up with a water-based cleanser (either foaming or non-foaming to strip away sweat and other impurities).
Subi’s duo is the best we’ve got and apparently your favourite too!
Subi Bare Skin Balm won this year’s Best New K-Beauty Product and if there is one thing we are certain about it’s that our besties deserve the best.
Boo to boring stocking fillers! Let’s leave them in the past. Our top picks this year are:
If you are spending Christmas in Australia the chances are that, despite our many, many warnings, you, or someone you know will overdo it with the sun at least once.
It’s OK (it’s not) but the suffering will be reduced with this mask. The combination of aloe vera and green tea provide an instant cooling and soothing sensation to the skin. These masks are the perfect SOS for skin that’s had a little too much sun.
Pimple Patches Save Lives. We cannot overstate this enough.
Everyone needs an emergency pimple patch in their bag and not everyone has them. You can change that. You have that power. Be the change you want to see in the world.
We love Skin Food.
We love skincare and we love food. And this brand incorporates the two together. What’s not to love?
This is a great exfoliant and winner of Sure Magazine’s “No 1 Facial Scrub of The Year”.
This one is great for younger relatives. Not only does it target oily and acne prone skin, but its packaging is holographic and the mask itself is shiny.
Packed with awesome ingredients like Kakadu Plum and Centella Asiatica this dreamy mask is 100% free from alcohol, synthetic fragrance, essential oils, mineral oils, detergents, and parabens. It’s also cruelty free! So, everyone wins.
The set includes a Cleansing Balm, Peeling Gel and Face Cream and is guaranteed to get your work spouse's skin glowing.
Beauty of Joseon create beautiful skincare using the knowledge of their ancestors combined with modern technology. Their products contain ingredients favoured by the women in Korea’s Dynastic period and includes traditional Asian beauty secrets.
The products in this set are all best-sellers and work gently and effectively on the skin. Efficacy combined with the interesting backstory of the brand make this a great gift and thoughtful introduction to the world of K-Beauty.
With all Christmas shopping, our ethos is some for you, some for me!
So, while you are giving the gift of giving…. Don’t forget to give something back…to yourself.
There’s nothing wrong with a few extra gifts under the tree from ‘Santa’. Gotta love that guy! Plus, you deserve it.
