KocoStar: Rose Flower Mask Sheet
This isn’t your regular sheet mask. Apply each petal directly where you need it most! Simply peel and place, just like a sticker! Infused with Western Rose Flower Extract, this mask helps to soothe pores as well as encourage hydration.
AHC: Eye Cream For Face
AHC is a tried and true K-Beauty favorite. This Eye Cream For Face is a cult-favorite for a good reason (about one tube of this baby is sold every 3 seconds in South Korea). AHC’s Eye Cream for Face takes the ultra-hydrating, brightening, and nourishing technology of eye cream and spreads the love to full facial care. This soothing formula contains a proprietary blend of vitamins and peptides designed to absorb quickly into your skin. This cream’s rich texture not only feels luxurious, but leaves you feeling radiant, refreshed, and soothed.
MidFlower: Rosa Damascena BioCellulose Peel Mask
What’s a K-Beauty routine without a great sheet mask? Sometimes simple is the best solution. This BioCellulose mask is infused with 15ml of Rosa Damascena Water to deliver ultimate hydration and nourishment. Why BioCellulose? The gel-like BioCelluslose mask is made of fibers 500 times thinner than skin tissue!

We’re serious – your pores will thank you for this one. This simple duo is a built-in skincare routine designed to provide you with day and night moisture balance.

Oh K! Skincare: Purifying Pink Clay Sheet Mask
Forget the mess of a clay mask! Made with pink clay and rosehip oil, this sheet mask perfectly detoxes stressed and tired skin. Betonite, Illite, and Kaolin clay work together to gently purify your skin and reduce the appearance of pores. Rosehip Oil helps to unclog pores, improve even skin tone, and maintain moisture to preserve skin balance.
DERMALA: Patch Me If You Can
Meet your new best friend. These easy to use clear patches are made from a hydrocolloid that absorbs oil and pus from your problem areas. It also lowers pH in the important areas below your blemishes! This inhibits bacterial growth and helps prevent scarring.

There’s a sheet mask for everything! This is one of our favorite hydrating masks. Using a unique print, the stars on this mask change color based on the moisture and temperature levels of your skin. Isn’t that crazy? You have to see it to believe it.
Vichy: Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Face Moisturizer
Although Vichy isn’t (technically) a K-Beauty brand, no Korean Beauty routine would be complete without hyaluronic acid. This lightweight and fast-absorbing moisturizer combine mineral water with hyaluronic acid for complete hydration and protection. Use alone as a moisturizer or as part of your 5-step ritual.
