Give the gift of glow on a budget.
As all skin care lovers know, Korean Beauty pioneered making lush, effective skin care formulas affordable.
This perfect combination of price and complete potency (did we mention cute, aesthetic packaging?) makes Korean skin care the perfect present for anyone looking to give gifts and stocking stuffers this holiday season to their loved ones without putting a serious dent in their savings.
We rounded up the best K-Beauty skin care holy grails under $25 (yup, you read that right) that’ll have your giftees glowing, nourished, and completely skin care obsessed this holiday season. From lip masks that double as lip balms and award winning cleansing balms to breakout busting serums and milky cleansers with purpose, there’s an affordable skin care find for everyone in your life, ranging from besties to aunts and uncles.
Then I Met You Honey Dew Lip Mask ($22)
Besides being absolutely gorgeous, this multi-tasking lip mask is an on-the-go staple. Heralded by the likes of the queen of skin care herself, Caroline Hirons, and skinfluencer James Welsh, it uses a combination of lactic acid, squalane, honey dew, and vitamin E to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells and deliver nutrients to your pout.
Layer it and leave it on overnight as a sleep mask or swipe across the lips during the day to use it as a glossy nourishing balm.
Cocokind Oil to Milk Cleanser ($17.99)
Milky textures and formulas are *so* satisfying and incredibly gentle! This transforming formula is no different, containing microbiome friendly fermented oat.
Packaged in a recyclable tube made from sugarcane materials, this vegan formula transforms from a hydrating oil cleanser to a milky foam when massaged into the face using water. Who doesn’t like watching skin care magic before their eyes?
Rovectin LHA Blemish Ampoule ($15)
Is your giftee’s skin sensitive and acne prone? This gentle breakout fighting innovation is reporting for duty.
Finding a truly effective anti-acne product that jives with sensitive skin is tricky, but Rovectin’s cracked the code. The LHA Blemish Ampoule uses a more gentle derivative of salicylic acid, one which is closer to the skin’s natural pH level, to unclog pores and bypass irritation. We love ingredient innovation!
Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original ($19)
Beauty editors across the globe are in agreement, this cleansing balm is the bomb.
The perfect kick-off to any double cleansing routine, this balm-to-oil cleanser works to rid the skin of oil based impurities, like makeup and sunscreen, using both vitamin E and vitamin C. The result? Soft, clean, nourished skin!
The Klog Soft Shield Pimple Patch ($6)
These aren’t just any pimple patches and they have the features to prove it. Vegan? Check. Nearly invisible? Yup. Sticks to skin even during a workout? Duh.
Your giftee will love these, as they’re no fuss and do all the heavy lifting when it comes to calming and deflating bothersome zits. They’re also the perfect size for gifting and stocking stuffing!
