It’s also the philosophy of application, the method of makeup removal 4-2-4 (4 minutes with oil, 2 minutes with gel and 4 minutes with water) and face cleansing only with cold water. Cream with hyaluronic acid, BB cream, sheet masks and lip tints are just a few of a whole range of Korean cosmetics available on the market.

Korean cosmetics – examples and properties
Concentrated water-based cream with a vitamin C derivative
a light cream that can be used as a serum under a dense cream or a foundation. It has brightening properties, which is why it is especially recommended for skin with hyperpigmentation. It moisturises well, and at the same time reduces the visibility of pores and accelerates the healing process of inflammation. It soothes irritations.
Hyaluronic acid cream
it has a light, gel-like consistency, making it perfect for the summer. The product moisturizes perfectly and does not leave a film on the skin. It can be used as a base for a BB cream.
although it is only available in one colour, it perfectly adapts to the face shade. It does not replace full make-up, but it also conceals and reduces the visibility of mimic wrinkles. It does not clog the pores. The snail’s venom contained in it makes the skin smoothed and toned, and the SPF 25 filter effectively protects against the sun.
they come in many varieties, each of which has different properties, for example moisturizing, soothing or anti-inflammatory.
Dry face scrub
it is applied to the face and washed after a few-minute massage. It can be performed at any time during the day. It contains delicate particles that do not irritate the skin.
it is highly pigmented and has an expressive colour. It can be applied using a soft puff. The product is very efficient and perfect for the summer.
is a two-phase water-oily product that gives the effect of lips covered with water. The cosmetic softens and moisturizes the lips perfectly. It occurs in a cherry colour and, unlike lipsticks and lip glosses, it does not leave an oily layer.
