Each time a K-pop idol reveals a beauty product they’re using, it’s always sold out the next day.
But truly, who can blame them? We would all love to be privy to the beauty secrets of our favourite internet sensations.
A group we’re particularly curious about is the Grammy-nominated K-pop group, BTS. Aside from their insane talent, the seven idols are also known for their good looks and clear skin. What products make up their routines and how can we get our hands on them?
Read on to discover the beauty products members of BTS swear by!
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF15
The members of this idol group are serious about lip care and their eldest sets a great example. Jin has been spotted swiping on this particular lip balm at many airport appearances.
Not only does it boast meadowfoam seed oil, grapeseed oil, and sugar to smooth and soften the lip, but also SPF 15 so even your lips can get some sun protection.
Protecting your lips from the harmful UV rays is an essential step as it helps reduce the development of wrinkles and fine lines on your lips.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF15 retails for S$65, available at Zalora.
Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint Bare Pink
Who says men can’t wear a tinted balm or lipstick? This group is here to erase this stigma. He sometimes reaches for the Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint in the shade Bare Pink to dress his lips in a sweet, natural pink hue.
Treat this as your go-to lip balm to bring out the best version of your lips with its colour-enhancing tint.
Coat your lips in a formula that features an olive oil complex, vitamin E, and vitamin C for intense hydration and nourishment.
Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint Bare Pink retails for S$52, available at Sephora.
Nivea Lip Care Fruity Shine Strawberry
You can’t go wrong with this classic lip balm that is loved by the group’s rapper. He’s a fan of the iconic lip balm because of how timeless and simple it is.
A tinge of red will appear on your lips with each swipe, but what really makes this lip balm a bestseller is its ability to provide long-lasting moisture. It’s jam-packed with a bunch of moisturising ingredients like ricinus communis seed oil and glycerin.
You’ll get soft and supple lips just like Suga.
Nivea Lip Care Fruity Shine Strawberry retails for S$4.90, available at Shopee.
Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
If Suga can carry a tub of Vaseline wherever he goes, you have no excuse to skimp on your lip care routine.
The tiny tub is super handy to bring along during your travels and it boasts its star ingredient that leaves your lips feeling soft and supple: petroleum jelly.
Petroleum jelly is an occlusive ingredient that locks in moisture for deep hydration, preventing dry and cracked lips. This particular formula even has a tinge of rose extract for soft, pink lips.
Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips retails for S$5.20, available at Shopee.
J-Hope and Suga
Mediheal Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask
K-beauty is known for its sheet masks so we’re not surprised to learn that they are a part of these Korean celebrities’ skincare routines. Oftentimes, they would pop one on their face after a long day of work to give their skin a boost of hydration.
One mask that BTS rappers, J-Hope and Suga, use would be Mediheal Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask.
After a performance, the two took to the live streaming app, V Live, where they interacted with fans while pampering their skin with this sheet mask.
It boasts ingredients like tea tree leaf oil, portulaca oleracea extracts, and pine needle to control oil production while soothing dry and irritated skin.
It’s no wonder that these two idols are fans of this sheet mask! A pro tip from J-Hope would be to dab on some hydrating toner before putting your sheet masks to lock in even more moisture.
Mediheal Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask retails for S$3.90, available at Watsons.
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm
While we’re not super certain which shade BTS’ leader prefers, we know that he enjoys swiping on a layer of this natural lip balm to soothe his chapped lips.
Whichever shade he uses will give his lips a tinted hue, brightening up the entire lip look and in turn, complexion.
The botanical waxes infused into its formula will smooth and nourish your lips after each application round. This intense hydration can even last up to eight hours.
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm retails for S$23, available at Sephora.
TonyMoly Kiss Kiss Lip Essence Balm
As expected of the member with the best style, we’re not surprised that this lip balm is a staple in Jimin’s beauty stash.
The adorable packaging takes the form of red lips and it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. Its lightweight formula is infused with ingredients like honey extract to keep your lips supple and plump.
TonyMoly Kiss Kiss Lip Essence Balm retails for S$10, available at TonyMoly.
Mentholatum’s Lipcare Waterlip Toneup CC Pure Red
Just like the eldest member, the second youngest uses a lip balm with SPF protection.
Not only does this lip balm have SPF20 PA++, but it’s also infused with jojoba seed oil, olive oil, and vitamin E to moisturise the lips.
V has been spotted using the Pure Red shade that subtly colour-corrects the lips to brighten the overall look of the face.
Mentholatum’s Lipcare Waterlip Toneup CC Pure Red retails for S$6.54, available at Yesstyle.
Zeroid Pimprove Toner Balanced Care for Oily & Troubled Skin
Would you believe us if we told you that this dashing vocalist actually suffers from acne-prone skin? We certainly didn’t! He credits this toner for his clear skin.
One of V’s practices would be soaking cotton pads with the Zeroid Pimprove Toner Balanced Care for Oily & Troubled Skin before placing them on his cheeks during long flights.
Doing this makes the toner act as a mask that maintains the skin’s moisture levels while reducing the production of oil, also known as sebum.
This toner, in particular, is formulated with LHA which hydrates the skin as well as zinc PCA which regulates sebum production.
Zeroid Pimprove Toner Balanced Care for Oily & Troubled Skin retails for S$34.90, available at Shopee.
Forment For Men Signature Perfume in Cotton Hug
We know the fans of BTS (also known as ARMY) often wonder what scents their “ults” use.
Here’s what the maknae (youngest) of the group, Jungkook, actually wears. In one of the groups’ YouTube videos, it was revealed that Jungkook carries around a bottle of Forment For Men Signature Perfume Cotton Hug in his toiletry bag.
This powdery and fresh fragrance reminds us of fresh laundry out of the dryer. Infused with notes like jasmine, lily of the valley, eucalyptus, amber, and patchouli, this citrus scent will lift your mood instantly.
Forment’s For Men Signature Perfume in Cotton Hug retails for US$28.30 (~S$38.33), available at Olive Young.
Teazen Kombucha Lemon
Jungkook knows that a healthy gut equals clear skin and a healthy complexion. The vocalist keeps his gut in check by drinking two sachets of Teazen Kombucha Lemon daily.
This maknae really knows what he’s doing since he picked a beverage that is packed with prebiotics, probiotics, and 12 types of lactic acid bacteria.
All of these are great for strengthening the immune system, improving digestion, detoxifying the gut, and reducing blood pressure.
Everyone can enjoy this drink since it’s halal-certified too!
Teazen Kombucha Lemon retails for S$12.90, available at Shopee.
CosRX Acne Pimple Master Patch
Celebrity or not, we’re bound to have a few spots appear on our faces.
This Grammy-nominated group is no exception and here’s how they tame their pesky pimples. The group has been seen using the CosRX Acne Pimple Master Patch to conceal and soothe the bumps on their face.
Pimple patches are a great way to conceal and heal any blemishes without irritating them further. Plus, they will coax excess sebum out of the pimple. Hours after applying the patch, you’ll notice that the pimple won’t be as inflamed as before.
CosRX Acne Pimple Master Patch retails for S$7.90, available at Shopee.
AHC Natural Perfection Double Shield Sun Stick
Whether you’re a skincare junkie or novice, everyone knows that sunscreen is essential when it comes to getting clear, youthful-looking skin.
In one of their variety shows, Bon Voyage, the seven members are seen swiping generous amounts of AHC Natural Perfection Double Shield Sun Stick SPF50+/PA++++ on their faces.
Not only does it protect their skin from harmful UV rays and solar heat, but it also helps soothe sensitive skin.
AHC Natural Perfection Double Shield Sun Stick SPF50+/PA++++ retails for S$20.50, available at Yesstyle.
