New Korean skincare products [February 2021 – 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.
Deepondé – Hyabalance line
Contemporary premium beauty brand Deepondé launched “Hyabalance“, a new skincare line designed to provide long-lasting hydration and vitality to flaky winter skin.
The line contains Applephenon, a blend of polyphenols extracted from green apples with revitilising properties, Oligo Hyaluronic Acid (Hyaluronic acid with very low molecular weight) to deeply hydrate skin, and Dexpanthenol, an alcohol derivative of Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) that helps soothe and protect dry and compromised skin.
Below the full product line-up:
Neker – Moistouch line
Neker‘s new “Moistuch” line was created to deliver deep hydration to dehydrated, oily skin.
All products were formulated using Oligo Hyaluronic Acid (Hyaluronic acid with very low molecular weight) to hydrate skin and restore its natural water and oil balance. The line is composed of a toner, an ampoule and a cream.
“Moistuch Toner” is a hydrating toner with a fresh, lightweight texture. Its formulas was enriched with vitamin B3 (Niacin) to prevent water loss and regulate excessive sebum production.
“Moistuch Ampoule” features Bifida Ferment Lysate, a probiotic ingredient that helps protect, restore and strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Despite its high concentration, the ampoule has watery, gel consistency that is quickly absorbed into the skin.
“Moistuch Cream” is a gel cream with a lightweight, fresh formula that works to soothe and revitilise skin. The cream can be used both as a day moisturiser and as a sleeping mask.

The formula also contains Panthenol to hydrate and protect the skin’s barrier, along with Peppermint Extract which helps relieve post-shaving skin irritation.
Overall, “Man Power 2X All In One” has a multifunctional formula with revitilising, hydrating, repairing, anti-aging and soothing properties.
The Saem – Honeybiotics Cleansing Oil
The Saem launched “Honeybiotics Cleansing Oil“, a mild cleansing oil that gently melts away heavy make-up, excessive sebum and impurities without stripping skin of its natural moisture.
The key ingredient of the product is “Honeybiotics Formula”, a complex blend of raw honey, royal jelly, propolis and Re-DerMAX™, a trademarked fermented ingredient originally isolated from Korean native bees’ intestines. It was proven that Re-DerMAX™ can restore damaged cells and improve skin density and elasticity.
The formula is also enriched with many vegetable oils and and it emulsifies easily as soon as it comes into contact with water. “Honeybiotics Cleansing Oil” is suitable for sensitive skin and it’s recommended for dry, dehydrated or sensitised skin.
