More importantly, they’re not pricey AF but do a damn good job at healing.
Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream They say, big things come in small packages. They were right! Tiny but powerful, this calming blue cream comprises of guaiazulene – a natural component extracted from chamomile oil (that’s where it gets its distinctive blue shade from) that’s known to heal and soothe inflamed, agitated skin. Centella Asiatica and ceramide 3 fortify your skin barrier with ample nutrients to nourish and strengthen even further. Got sunburns? Razor burns? Apply a thin layer over the area and it’ll calm down your skin in a minute.
Limese Real Brightening and Glow Up Sheet Mask Caught the sheet mask frenzy early on? Then you know for a fact there’s nothing more relaxing than popping one on while catching the latest episode of Stranger Things. Take this golden charcoal fiber-manufactured mask for instance. Not only is it fancy-black, but neem extracts, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide work in tandem to reduce puffiness (around the eyes), plump up skin in general and leave a soothing sheen long after you’ve taken it off. Win-win!
A by BOM Ultra Watery Eoseongcho Cleanser First comes an oil-cleanser, then comes a water-based one (skin secret #1 for glowing skin ^^). But when you’re battling natural forces like pollution, oily skin and/or sweat glands that are perpetually in overdrive, you need something gentle to cleanse but strong enough to get all that waterproof makeup off. Fortified with ‘eoseongcho’ a Korean flowering plant that’s soothing especially for problematic skin, active acne, and chronic breakouts don’t stand a chance. Plus, it’s balm-like texture is ah-mazing.
Make P:Rem Safe Me Relief Moisture Toner Less is more is THE mantra to follow when you’ve got angry skin that’s acting up. And what’s better than a milky white toner that packed with the mildest ingredients to cool down sensitized skin. Infused with the goodness of natural actives, it rebalances your skin’s natural pH levels while replenishing lost moisture. The best part, red seaweed brightens with regular use, and glycerin acts as a power-house locking in hydration for plump, supple skin that’s soft to touch, sans the fear of breaking out.
