4 K-Beauty Skincare Products You MUST Try

Whenever I travel, I have to check out the snacks (obviously) and the beauty offerings (makeup, skincare, etc.). It's just a thing I do. And even though I've been to 19 countries, there are still plenty of places I'd love to see, and Asian countries are most definitely on that list. But today I'm bringing the beauty of those places here--no plane ticket needed and no suitcase (sidenote: packing for trips is not my fave thing...anyone else the same way?). And luckily, these K-Beauty (Korean beauty) fab finds are available in the States (I found these at ULTA).

I got to try all of sorts of K-Beauty treats and I'm sharing 4 that met the Elle Sees Stamp of Approval (if you put things in caps, it looks more official, right?). While I LOVE masks (some are coming tomorrow), and I know when I think of K-Beauty, those definitely top the list, but I wanted to share a few different products. Check 'em out:

CLE Radiant Skin Melting Cleanser

  • melts makeup and impurities without harsh sulfates or heavy oils
  • non-irritating (there is a subtle scent)
  • doesn't strip skin of essential hydration with its gel-like formula (you can see I put a little at the top on the cap in the pic above)
  • leaves skin clean, soft, and moisturized
  • $28

SKINRX LAB MadeCera Cream

  • repairs and restore damaged, dehydrated, and sensitive skin--I love this on my hands, elbows, knees and feet 
  • formulated with naturally fermented ceramides
  • niacinimide brightens and visibly lightens dark spots while madecassoside, an ancient herbal remedy derived from pennywort, soothes inflammation and calms redness
  • balm-like texture
  • $36

O.R.G. SKINCARE Mineral Peel Face

  • spray-on exfoliant that instantly removes dermal debris, dead skin, and pore impurities
  • second time I've mentioned this on the blog--just spray and rub away the balled up product
  • natural enzymes soften dead skin and stubborn makeup 
  • instant soft skin
  • $44

THANK YOU FARMER Miracle Age Repair Eye Cream

  • replenishes the delicate under eye area with rich moisturizers and anti-aging nutrients--dry under eyes need this
  • densely whipped formula--you only need a little
  • contains shea butter to hydrate and protect delicate skin
  • kudzu root extract boosts collagen to firm and plump the eye area 
  • peony extract provides antioxidant protection to prevent further free radical damage
  • $56

  9. I had no idea that O.R.G was Korean, have always thought it was Western. Great list here, Elle!

  10. Interesting products Elle! Ive tried the
    O.R.G. SKINCARE Mineral Peel Face and I really like it so far!

  11. Is it me or does the word "Melting" when it comes to face products kinda freak anyone else out?

  14. I am seeing more and more k beauty items around and I am intrigued. I think the melting cleanser and that skin scream sound fabulous! Hope you have a great week!

  15. When my husband went to South Korea, he was blown away at how many beauty products were advertised and for sale. They definitely have an obsession with beauty! It's neat that so many things abroad are becoming mainstream now!

  16. I just placed a big K Beauty order! I'm going to do an unboxing video. The O.R.G. SKINCARE Mineral Peel Face interests me the most out of the products above!

  17. I always check for brands we don't have here while travelling and I would love to visit an asian country someday. Interesting products here, they are all new to me! x


  18. I know I have seen that peel somewhere before, the packaging looks so familiar. The eye cream sounds like a dream too. A steak dinner sounds divine!

  19. I'm loving my #kbeauty journey so far. I haven't tried any of these but the MadeCera caught my eye because I'm looking for products to beef up my skin barrier.

  20. That eye cream definitely peaks my interest!

  21. Oh I love new products can't wait to check out the eyecream!
