Ready For Summer: 8 K-Beauty Must-Haves For The New Season

It finally feels like warm weather got the memo. Days are already feeling more like summer, and we’re excited about the new possibilities that brings: from longer days, to picnics at the park, comfy, fresh clothes, and new skincare and makeup goodies. Wondering if there are any beauty items out there you should add to your cabinet this season? The answer is always yes. Here are some of our absolute faves!

AKOCO – Green Day Set

Keeping our skin calm, protected from the environment, and healthy is rule number one when going through weather transition, and AKOCO knows it well. They recently came out with a curated box with all the goodies you need in order to keep your skin under control so it looks and feels its best all season long. Green tea, cica, tea tree, and aloe are just some of the major ingredients featured in these products, all holy grails for the perfect summer complexion.

VDL – Creamy Stick Jelly

A little cheek-party never killed anybody, and VDL knows it. These super creamy blushes are not only lightweight and perfect for a dewy finish, but also super hydrating, melting onto your skin effortlessly and lasting all day long. Formulated with VDL’s signature cocktail of vitamin-rich ingredients, the formula can be used both on cheeks and lips. This way, rather than just expressing color, you end up adding light to create a three-dimensional outline.

Son & Park – Beauty Filter Cream Glow

How you know a moisturizer is “the one”? When you wear it for the first time and you are almost immediately thinking about getting backups. That’s what happens when you try the Beauty Filter cream for the first time. This lightweight cream features flower extracts such as lily, jasmine, and rose in a whipped-cream like formula that also contains pearl extract to illuminate the skin and control sebum production. Want brighter, smoother, glass-like skin? This is the moisturizer you’ve been looking for.

Glow Recipe – Pineapple Glass Skin Kit

Four of Glow Recipe’s best sellers in one little pouch. This set contains all the products and ingredients your skin needs during summer in order to look radiant, healthy, and smooth. Featuring a blueberry cleanser, a vitamin C serum, and the two beauty icons that the watermelon juice moisturizer and the watermelon sleeping mask are, this travel set is what summer-skin dreams are made of.

Neogen – O2 Energy Power Serum Spray

Is it a serum? Is it a mist? It’s both things in one! This powerful serum spray is enriched with 80 percent pure oxygen water, which helps revitalize, clarify, and brighten up tired, stressed, and dehydrated complexions. During summer, our skin goes through a lot because of high temperatures, so keeping it protected and hydrated is a must. This mist will do the job for you!

Cosrx – Shield Fit Snail Essence Sunscreen

Summer, fall, spring, winter… it doesn’t matter the season, sunscreen is an absolute must every single day of our lives. But I get you, not all sunscreens feel nice on the skin. Well, this one acts both as an essence and a sunscreen, which can turn the experience into an amazing one. Super lightweight and easy to absorb, this sunscreen will not only protect your skin from UV rays, but will also humect and hydrate it thanks to the snail mucin. The result? Petal-soft skin that stays protected all day long.

Peripera – Sugar Jelly Tint

A good lip tint is a must to carry with you all summer long in order to keep your lips juicy and hydrated. These ones by Peripera are not only incredibly cute, but also stay put for a long time, even through meals and drinks! Enriched with manuka honey and sugar maple syrup extract to nourish and moisturize your lips, these will add a vibrant touch to your makeup in a swipe.

AMUSE – Blossom Palette

No, you should never buy a product only because the packaging is cute, but when the formula is actually amazing too, then you’ve found a godsend. This palette is one of those. Nine high-pigmented eyeshadows featuring some spring/summer favorite shades that are easy to use and combine, giving you infinite options and looks in one palette. It’s all about how you mix them together!
