It’s no mystery that we’re sort of enamored with Korean beauty products and rituals. And thanks to Amazon, going down the Korean beauty product rabbit hole has never been easier! Just search “Korean beauty” and you will find a Pandora’s box of intriguing serums, BB creams, elixirs and other random concoctions you’ve never heard of. It’s basically the Korean beauty internet equivalent of walking into Sephora and going wild. Confession: We’ve spent 2 hours roaming in Sephora (on more than one occasion.) Bottom line: beauty products are FUN. We love them like our boyfriends love video games and yelling at the TV during sports games. Here’s 10 awesome products to try now:
