5 K-Beauty Staples That Are Perfect To Take On A Desert Island Adventure

What if you were to take a trip on a desert-island or found yourself stranded on one? You’d be so happy to see that you’ve packed your favorite and most convenient K-beauty items in your purse! All of these items are small enough to carry around and are totally hassle free. Being on a desert-island can’t stop you from maintaining your beautiful self!

Here’s five must-have items for your next trip to a desert island!

1. INNISFREE Olive Real Cleansing Tissue

The best thing to carry around when traveling, especially if you find yourself on an island, are face wipes. They’re super effective in getting rid of all the dirt and makeup off your face at the end of the day, and they’re especially great for those of you who are a bit lazy. All you need to do is take out a sheet and gently wipe your entire face and it sets the perfect canvas for your next skin care steps! These Innisfree Olive Real Cleansing Tissues are super gentle and don’t irritate your skin, leaving it hydrating and smooth.

2. COSRX One Step Kit

These packages are probably the most convenient thing in the world, especially when traveling. It’s also a great bonus gift to give those who are skincare fanatics! This package is divvied up into three – you’ve got your first step, which is the Good Morning Gel Cleanser, a toner pad, and a face mask for the last step. It’s conveniently got all the basic necessities when it comes to your skincare routine, all in one package.

3. Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Mist

Not only is this mist in the cutest packaging ever, but it’s small enough to carry around everywhere with you – desert island included. If you need a little freshening up, these little toners are great to bust out and spray on your face. It’s also got a subtle scent to it that’s not too overpowering. It’s a great mist that is also super hydrating!

4. Soon Jung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream

Soon Jung is the new line under Etude House and it’s been quite the rave in Korea. It’s mostly being praised for its minimal ingredients as well as its effectiveness, especially for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin. It’s perfect for those with any type of skin, whether its oily, dry, or combination, which is why I put it on this list. It’s amazingly hydrating, but not greasy or oily. You can’t ask for more out of a cream!

5. Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk

You can’t be on a deserted-island without sunscreen. You’ve got to do everything it takes to protect that face of yours! The Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk has an SPF protection of 50+, so you can be rest-assured that your face will be well protected from that sun. This is a holy grail sunscreen for many K-beauty lovers and has stood the test of time as being one that is great for acne-prone skin. The milky texture of the sunscreen is also great as it doesn’t leave any white residue behind on your skin. It absorbs like a dream!

Happy skincare-ing!
