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 The Monodist breaks down the hottest beauty launches coming from Korea.
Sooryehan – The Black Serum
Sooryehan launched “The Black Serum“, a product that bring harmony and radiance to the skin by targeting signs of micro-aging that are usually overlooked.
“The Black Serum” is an anti-hidden aging serum that helps improve signs of micro-aging, which are due to extended skin imbalances, and targets the 5 main indicators of skin aging, including: wrinkles, decreased elasticity, sagging skin, increased dryness and reduced skin density.
The distinctive feature of “The Black Serum” is that each bottle contains 15 million exosomes, ingredients that recently came under the spotlight in various fields. This was achieved through Sooryehan’s recently discovered Black Yeast™: the vitality secret that allows the petals of the orchid flower to blossom and bloom for a long time even in poor conditions. Black Yeast™, with the addition of biotechnology, led to the creation of Black Exosome™.
Another advantage of the serum is that it provides intense nourishment which is quickly absorbed and adheres tightly to the skin without stickiness.
Missha – Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule Balm Stick
Missha announced the launch of “Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule Balm Stick“, also dubbed as “Borabit Ampoule Balm”.
The new “Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule Balm Stick” contains the same key ingredients of Missha’s bestselling “Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule 5X” in stick form. The product is a 2-in-1 dual balm that improves skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles at the same time: the firming balm part contains Extreme Biome™, while the anti-wrinkle balm part contains Extreme Collagen™ in an optimal ratio of 82:18, respectively, to ensure higher efficacy.
