New to Korean Skincare? Try These First!
These days the Korean Beauty industry is huge, which is great when it comes to options but it can make things daunting for newcomers. With so many choices, it's hard to where to start, especially when there are so many gorgeous products on the market.
But K-Beauty is not a a "one-size fits all" and even though there are some very famous and hyped products (looking at you, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask), the best way to find your perfect match is to choose products tailored to your skin concerns.
So if you're new to Korean Skincare take a look at these options:
If you're new to Korean skincare and have pimples you're in for a real treat. Korean beauty options for acne prone skin tend to be much gentler and cost effective than similar western options. Like Subi Perfect Pimple Patch. 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.
