3. DR. JART+ Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

You might be slightly sceptical due to the bright green colour of this cream, but don't let looks fool you! This cream blends out from green to your natural skin tone as you rub it into the skin. Users enjoy using this product as it helps neutralise the redness in the skin and evens out the skin tone naturally. Fun fact, this cream's core ingredient is Tiger Grass (a nickname for Centella Asiatica aka Cica) a herb used in traditional Chinese medicine, and was actually used by tigers who would roll around in it to heal their wounds!

7. Torriden DIVE-IN Low Molecular Hyaluronic Acid Serum

@mcloving.friedrice You guys have been telling me to try @Torriden dive in serum and my skin has been DRINKING this😫 Would totally rec if you have dry skin #korean #koreanskincare #skincare #kbeauty #toronto #torriden #torridendivein #torridenkorea #torridendiveinserum #popularkoreanskincare #popularskincare #dryskin #hyluronicacid ♬ Nicki For the Money verse - pink friday 2

When we think of hydrating products, Hyaluronic Acid often comes to mind. In the case of this super ingredient, size does matter! Hyaluronic Acids with a lower molecular weight would mean hydration in deeper levels of the skin due to their smaller size to help with plumping, whereas a higher molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid works more towards the surface of the skin to improve textured skin and retaining moisture in the epidermis. This serum from Torriden boasts five different types of Hyaluronic Acids with varying molecular weights to fully quench the thirst of your skin from the inside out; truly a deep diver!

8. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

A staple among K-beauty enthusiasts, this COSRX essence has been around for ages and is still going viral on social media for many, many reasons. While natural glow and finish are a given, this snail essence also helps enhance your skin's damage recovery, while intensely moisturising skin. Whether you're prone to breakouts or have desert-dry skin, this is the go-to you need in your arsenal. Applied day and night, you'll see that any redness, irritation or blemish scars significantly lighten within a day or two!

Bean essences, like this Mixsoon product in particular, have started picking up momentum in K-beauty circles.

With a texture similar to that of snail slime, this multitasking serum uses a short ingredients list to exfoliate, hydrate and control sebum all at the same time. If you want a do-it-all product for glass skin, this is it.
