New Korean skincare products [November 2020 – Week 1]
Given the sheer amount of Korean beauty products launching every month, it’s hard to keep up with what’s new in K-Beauty. To help you navigate the complex world of Korean Beauty, every week I break down the hottest beauty launches coming from Korea.
Unlike with my monthly posts on K-Beauty bestsellers, you won’t find any link to purchase these products as they just became available in Korea.
But without further ado, here are the latest Korean skincare offerings of the week! Don’t forget to check out this week’s make-up launches as well.
Isoi – Fact Man line
Following the enormous success of their “Bulgarian Rose Blemish Care Serum”, Isoi developed a new range of men skincare products based on the same technology of the popular serum. The star ingredient of the “Fact Man” line is Hemp Seeds, a natural source of fatty acids, proteins, and amino acids. Along with Hemp Seeds, the products also include natural extracts like Oat Extract, Raspberry Extract and Angelica Extract to soothe and relieve skin irritated by shaving.
The range is composed of 3 products:
Tamburins – Hand Sanitizer 000
Minimalist beauty brand Tamburins launched “Hand Sanitizer 000“, a perfumed hand sanitizer inspired by the signature scent of their best-selling “Hand Cream 000”. Like the hand cream, the product combines the freshness of bergamot with the warm notes of sandalwood in a sophisticated, intense blend. The “Hand Sanitizer 000” contains 64% ethanol to effectively sterilise hands on-the-go, along with Centella Asiatica to soothe and hydrate skin. The sterilizing powers of the “Hand Sanitizer 000” were confirmed by the Korean FDA and the product was recognized as a quasi-drug.
Sioris – Falling In To the Rose Mist
“Falling In To The Rose” is a new mist from Sioris designed to calm and soothe troubled skin. Like their popular “Time Is Running Out Mist”, “Falling In To The Rose” is a multifunctional product that combines the qualities of a toner, an essence and a serum. As with their previous mist, the formula features two layers: a water layer to soothe and hydrate, and an oil layer to replenish the skin and lock in moisture. The mist contains 100% natural ingredients, including Green Tea Water and Cypress Leaf Water to calm redness and irritation, and a nourishing blend of plant oils like Jojoba Seed Oil, Argan Kernel Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil and Vegetable Squalane Oil.
To give the product a natural floral scent, Sioris used allergy-free essential oils of Damask Rose. The product received COSMOS certification for natural and organic cosmetics.
So Natural – Dermaplex line
So Natural launched “Dermaplex“, a new range of products designed to help repair and protect the skin barrier. The products in the line feature an exclusive Dermaplex Complex that combines 8 different types of Probiotics, Green Propolis Extract and Spicule. These ingredients work together to restore the skin barrier and regulate the natural oil and water balance of the skin. The line doesn’t contain any silicone or artificial fragrance and it’s suitable for sensitive skin.
Below the full product line-up:
AHC – Homme Jet Set
“Homme Jet Set” is the new men skincare line from AHC. All products in the line feature Power-Presso™, a patented technology that allows the ingredients in the formulas to penetrate deeper into men’s skin, which tends to be significantly thicker than female skin. The main ingredients of the line are Ion-charged Water, a great source of minerals and amino acids, Vegetable Taurine, which helps revive dull skin, and Centella Asiatica Extract to soothe and balance the skin.
The line is composed of 4 products:
T’else – Kombucha Teatox extension line
After the international success of their Kombucha range last year, T’else decided to expand the line with two new products: the “Kombucha Teatox Ampoule” and the “Kombucha Teatox Cream“. As with the other products in the range, both the cream and the ampoule contain fermented Assam tea leaves along with low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, which work together to hydrate and replenish the skin. Both products received a vegan certification from V-Label.
