These skincare treats are perfect little gifts!
We might be a little obsessed with K-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.
Not only does this hand cream smell like bananas, but it moisturizes your hands to perfection and leaves them soft and glowing. Also, it’s cute as heck. The end.
If you’re going to pull all your hair back to do nice things to your face, you may as well look like a cute cat while you’re at it.
Want that flawless stained lip look that K-drama icons pull off so gorgeously (hello, Cheon Song Yi)? Peripera’s lip stains are the perfect tool for the job, and they come in that holiday red that is so perfect this time of year.
Gudetama the lazy egg is massively popular, and you can find its face on a lot of makeup collabs from South Korea these days. This one is a cosmetic sponge from K-beauty fave Holika Holika, and it’s cute as can be.
‘Tis the season to do sheet masks. This one is really good for dry skin thanks to healing ingredients like jojoba oil. Plus, you get to be a snowman! Need more Korean beauty sheet mask recs? We got you covered.
Cutest packaging EVER, but this sleeping pack is also perfect to put on right before bedtime for an extra boost of moisture. Plus it smells like a lovely hot cup of green tea!
There’s no better time to exfoliate your skin than winter, and the Super Aqua peeling gel from Missha is a gentle way to do just that. Just rub it on dry skin (no more than once a week, FYI!) and watch the magic happen!
Speaking of dry skin during winter, your hands need extra love too. (Especially your cuticles!) A hand mask is a lot like a sheet mask in the form of gloves. This is perfect to do before a holiday party or date to make your hands look their best!
Not only keep your hands happy and moisturized this winter, but smile every time you unscrew this cute panda to get the lotion out!
Snail mucus is easily the superstar ingredient of the K-beauty world. This remarkable little gel cream is perfect at the last step of a skincare routine and does everything from minimizing redness to giving your skin a healthy glow.
