If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from K-beauty, it’s how to take great care of our skin. Looking at our favourite Korean personalities’ clear and dewy skin, it’s obvious that “skin first” is not just talk, but a real priority when it comes to beauty in Korea.
This means that besides comprehensive skincare routines, Koreans also love nourishing products such as lip masks, ampoules, and yes – eye creams that help to lock hydration into the skin as well as allow the skin to stay youthful.
Korean brands are certainly the right places to turn to when you’re looking for the best eye creams, whether you’re looking to keep your skin supple or improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, the wild ingredients found in Korean eye creams really do work. Snail mucin, red ginseng, and bamboo sap, anyone?
