Thought you’d have to cross oceans to get gorgeous skin? Not any more! Korean skincare has been in the international spotlight for the last few years. Because have you seen how gorgeous their skin is? But, until recently, these products have not been available on SA shores. Typical.
Luckily for us, times have changed, and we now have local online stores that have a wide variety of Korean goodies. We’re excited! Wondering what you should stock up on first? Here are a few of our faves. Happy shopping!
Tonymoly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch
Not only do these masks make for some hi-LAR-ious pictures, but they are pretty effective at hydrating your lips, too.
Laneige Special Care Lip Sleeping Mask
Slather some of this fruity potion over your lips at bedtime and you’ll awake to a soft pout in the morning. Guaranteed.
Tonymoly Banana Pong-Dang Lip Balm
This stuff is bananas but in a good way. The scent is subtle and it keeps lips moisturised all day. Plus, IT’S SHAPED LIKE A BANANA!
Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint
We love wine. We also love lip stains. This range comes in a host of lovely colours that will give that just-bitten colour to your lips.
Tonymoly Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Bar
This stuff has some rave reviews, and with good reason. It unclogs pores, removes dead skin cells and fights impurities to keep your skin looking flawless.
Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack
Pumpkins contains loads of enzymes, which are great for your skin. Sleep with this stuff on and they will get to work so you wake up glowing.
Tonymoly Golden Mushroom Sleeping Mask
Shaped like a cute little toadstool, this product is another sleeping mask (they love those in Korea) which supplies moisture to your skin throughout the night.
Skin79 Angry Cat Face Mask
This is one of those sheet masks that not only gets to work on your frown lines, but will also tempt you to take some pictures for the ‘Gram.
Because who WOULDN’T want to look like this while wearing a mask?

Tempted to buy this based on the packaging alone? You wouldn’t be disappointed, as it removes dirt and debris from your skin, too. Winning!
