Sometimes the best gifts are the most simple.

This Klavuu body wash is infused with actual pearl extracts to leave skin brighter. Even better, it’s formulated with a low pH so it won’t leave your friend’s skin feeling tight and parched when she hops out of the shower, making this is the perfect winter gift.
Tony Moly Panda’s Dream White Hand Cream ($12) or the Tony Moly Peach Hand Cream ($12) or the Tony Moly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk ($10)
Tony Moly is a cult fave Korean brand and you can clearly see why. On top of cute packaging, these three hand creams provide much-needed moisture to winter-ravaged hands with nourishing ingredients like honey and shea butter and fruity scents.
Etude House SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream ($18)
Klog writer Alexis Diaz fell in love with this moisturizing cream because it really soothes and hydrates her sensitive, dry skin. Thanks to the cream’s minimal ingredient list that includes only essential hydrating properties—like panthenol and sunflower seed oil—and its film-free finish, Alexis saw her skin transform from irritated and dull to hydrated and bouncy.
Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off ($10)
This popular blackhead-erasing physical exfoliator uses black sugar grains to get deep down into pores to remove sebum. Your friend will thank you so much for their smooth, soft skin and won’t be able to stop raving about its heavenly scent of brown sugar.
Goodal Moisture Barrier Rich Mist ($20)
The best thing about giving mists as gifts is that they work for mostly all skin types, so you don’t really have to know your friend all too well to ensure that the gift will be perfect for them. This Goodal mist is a winter favorite. It contains milk lipids to instantly hydrate dry patches and add dewiness back to skin that’s stuck in the doldrums of winter. It’s the perfect makeup refresher!

Even if your friend doesn’t know much about Korean beauty, they most likely know about the existence of sheet masks and would be thrilled opening up a present and seeing a pack of five of these super popular hydrogel masks. These Best of K-beauty Award-winning™ masks easily cling to skin so they’re perfect for a a sheet mask newbie or experienced user.
