10 Korean Beauty Products You Can Buy For Less Than $25
There’s no doubt the Korean beauty trend is getting bigger and bigger.
If you were an early adapter, it’s good news for you, because now US-based stores are stocking Korean products, making it easier for you to purchase them and receive them quicker. If you haven’t hopped on the K-train yet, it’s also good news for you because stores where you already shop, like Nordstrom, are stocking tons of Korean beauty products that you can score with the click of your mouse.
Don’t want to splurge on a new product without trying it? Don’t worry. We’ve highlighted some super cute, useful, and a little bit wacky Korean beauty products you can purchase for under $25 as part of Nordstrom’s K Pop-In Shop which will be live until March 31st.
1. This Pumpkin Spice Sleep Mask
Unlike your PSL or vegan, gluten-free pumpkin muffin, this sleeping mask is actually good for you. The packaging adorable, and all you have to do it put it on before bed and then go about your morning routine as you normally would–you don’t even have to wash it off! If you’re usually too lazy for face masks, you definitely need to buy this.
2. This Intergalactic Face Mask
For a very instagrammable face mask experience, consider buying this foil sheet mask. Koreans are known for their sheet masks, and this one has a cool metallic finish, plus ingredients with oil-controlling and pore-tightening properties.
3. This Soap To Combat PMS Skin
Unlike the tampon tax, this PMS Massage cleansing bar is something you won’t mind spending money on. The soap is specifically formulated to balance “period skin.” You know, skin prone to acne, dryness, or oiliness.
4. This Lip Crayon That Won’t Leave Your Lips Dry
Ditch the drying liquid lipstick for a moisturizing lip crayon that you don’t need an art degree to apply. We love this lip crayon from TPSY.
5. This Brow Mascara
2017 is still all about the brows, what better way to make sure that yours are on fleek than with this adorable brow mascara? It’s made with keratin to soften your brows while making them look bold, and the reviews are all A+. You need to buy this.
6. This Pig Mask
Another signature of Korean beauty products are masks with…interesting ingredients. But hey, they work, just ask our writer who tried a snail sludge mask. This Pig Collagen mask is said to work wonders for your nose pores and stubborn blackheads.
7. This Badass Makeup Remover
Unlike those CVS brand makeup wipes, which are said to not be the best for your skin, this makeup remover is something you won’t want to hide in your bathroom cabinet. I mean, honestly, maybe it’s just me, but any packaging with a skull on it has me sold.
8. This Cutesy 3-In-one Primer
Even if you don’t think this gingham bunny packaging is adorable, you have to appreciate a $24 primer that includes SPF and moisturizer. Buy this, and never have to spend five minutes applying skincare products in the morning again.
9. This Travel Size Muti-Purpose Tint
We’re all about killing two birds with one stone, especially if it means having a lip and cheek tint for $14 that fits in your going-out clutch. Buy this, pop it in your bag, and always have back-up for when you run into your ex.
10. This Weirdly Cute Mascara
You never knew you needed an adorable animal themed mascara, until now. I mean, how are you not supposed to have a good day when you do your makeup in the morning and see this lil’ bunny staring back at you?
