I expanded my skincare, haircare and makeup collection to include these, and I'm loving them.

The Korean beauty industry has gained many fans here in the U.S. and abroad. After hearing so many people rave about their success with Korean beauty products, I decided to try a whole host of products on my own. 

After a couple of months of use, five of these products have really stood out to me.

Skin Food Avocado Leave-In Fluid

A little goes a long way with this; I use a single pump at a time.

I’m familiar with the Skin Food brand already since I’ve been using their Peach Sake Pore Serum for quite a while. I decided to try this product more recently to see if their hair care was as impressive as their skin care. With humidity on the rise here in Kansas, I’ve been grateful for this product's ability to control frizziness without weighing my fine curls down. It also makes detangling a breeze!

Etude House Sweet Recipe Jelly Lips Talk in JOR 203

I’d be lying if I said the packaging of this lipstick didn’t heavily influence my purchase. Thankfully, in addition to looking adorable on my makeup table, this lipstick also performs well. I’ve been stocking up on sheerer formulas for summer, and this one applies smoothly and evenly, and leaves a beautiful wash of color.

Mizon Deep Sea Marine Collagen Ampoule

I use a couple of drops in my nighttime routine.

What I love about this ampoule is that I immediately felt an added plumpness to my skin when I first used it. Over the last couple months of daily use, I’ve noticed that the skin on my face, especially around my eyes and cheeks, looks and feels suppler.

Banila Co. Clean It Zero

The pot comes with a mini spoon to scoop the product out.

This cleansing balm does an excellent job of breaking up my makeup as a first step before I use my normal cleanser. It’s gentle, leaves my skin feeling soft, and isn’t as greasy as some other oil cleansers I’ve tried.

Tony Moly Floria Nutra Energy Toner

Gentle enough to use every day.

I have never been a big fan of toner because I don’t like how astringent it is. This one, however, is formulated with argan oil as well, so I don’t get that tight, dry feeling afterwards, and it doesn’t sting my face.
