Neogen Real Vita C Powder Lemon

What we said: 

“It’s a powder that’s formulated with 17% ascorbic acid (pure vitamin C), along with ingredients we love like allantoin, hydrolyzed collagen, trehalose, and lemon extract for nourishing and even more brightening benefits. The powder, designed to be mixed in with your toner or essence, is not susceptible to oxidation and can be used on all skin types, including sensitive. ” Read the full review here. 

What customers say: 

“I haven’t bought vitamin C products thinking the oxidation would waste my money. This is a genius solution! I swear it made a difference from the first time I used it – my skin looked brighter and dare I say, glowing. I LOVE THIS!” – Suzie R

COSRX Acne Pimple Master PatchBest of K-Beauty Soko Glam 2019 COSRX

What we said: 

“If I had a whitehead, the acne patch would immediately vacuum the gunk and soothe any irritation or pain, while also healing up the zit. I would often treat my skin while I was out and about — even at work — and NO one would notice. It was amazing. Best part is, I soon came to learn that they heal more than just zits.” Read the full review here.

What customers say: 

“I’ve purchased these 15+ times already! They’re the only things I use when a blemish pops up. They minimize redness and pull out all of the nasty gunk in a whitehead along with making the blemish disappear overnight! It’s like magic!” – Tori N

Solved Skincare Coconut Oil Cleansing Pads

What we said: 

“If you’ve struggled to find a makeup remover that can tackle waterproof mascara, liquid matte lipstick, and other hard-to-remove formulas, the Solved Skincare Coconut Oil Cleansing Pads are about to be your BFF. I loved that they removed all traces of my 16-product look and that I didn’t have scrub and tug at my face to do so. ” Read the full review here. 

What customers say: 

“They’re great for lazy days when you don’t want to get all messy using regular cleansing oil and these are perfect for travel. I only ever use 1 pad to get off a full face of makeup so these will go a long way. ” – Molara O

Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Essence Mist

What we said: 

“In addition to the group of ingredients that do more than just offer a quick burst of refreshment, the texture is downright dreamy. The formula is milky, making the mist fine and even, in comparison to some mists that feel like they’re spattering you in the face as you apply.” Read the full review here. 

What customers say: 

“This stuff is so luxurious! It goes on so smoothly. It leaves my face feeling refreshed, moist, and supple. I have extremely dry skin. And this mist from Acewell is PERFECT for it! I don’t know how I ever made it this far without it.” – Samantha WBest of K-Beauty Soko Glam 2019 Mediheal

Mediheal N.M.F Intensive Hydrating Sheet Mask

What customers say: 

“I’m always looking for that holy grail of eye cream, and I think CPP Collagen 80% Intensive Eye Cream is the closest I’ve found. You only need a little, and it absorbs quickly and completely — no issues with concealer. It helps to keep my under eyes looking more hydrated.” – Bonnie G

Mamonde Petal Spa Oil To Foam Cleanser

Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream

What we said:
