We might be a little obsessed with Korean beauty here at the Bazaar. Just a tad. If you know someone else who is too, it’s not a surprise as the cult skincare has continued to get bigger and bigger in countries outside its native South Korea.
If you’d like to thrill a family member who’s obsessed with sheet masks, toss one (or all) of our prime picks in their stocking this holiday. We’ve tried them all, and can vouch by their effectiveness. Best of all, they’re all under $10, so these are great gifts at a very small price.
