#1 Skin Food

Up first on our K beauty faves, this brand features a wide variety of skin care, makeup, and hair products that are made from  natural ingredients such as fruits and vegetables. Originating in South Korea, Skin Food made their logo a guardian angel to represent the promise of purity in all products to customers.

We recommend you try!

Skin Food’s : Beauty In A Food Mask, which comes in an array of fresh sheet masks to revitalize and soften your face. I love the Acai berry mask, it’s great for unwinding at the end of the day.


Skin Food’s: Peach Sake series.

A unique set of peach infused products that you can build into a set to fit your skin care needs. Choose from pore serum, Toner, moisturizer,  cleanser, or face masks! Designed for sensitive skin, these products are made for skin care fanatics and peach lovers alike.


#2 Tony Moly

Another K beauty brand popping up everywhere, this line is slowly making its way onto everyone’s beauty essentials list. Tony Moly designs products from makeup, to pore packs, to hand creams; which can also be found online or at some of your local beauty shops. With all natural ingredients, they’re made for ultimate refreshing and promoting healthy skin. Did I mention they’re also made in adorable packaging?

One of their most popular products for example is Wonder Pore, a multipurpose toner that gets rid of those pesky clogged pores and clears dark spots on your skin. With its active ingredients, it helps to promote a nice complexion and a feeling of being refreshed.


We also recommend their Silk Scarf Hair Treatment, another product beauty lovers have been raving about. Perfect to add to your weekly hair care routine, this floral scented oil promotes healthy, strong locks! Best for those that need that extra umph when treating brittle ends, or breakage.
