Best Amazon Prime Day 2023 Korean Skin-Care Deals

Korean skin care has always been that girl. Whether you now consider double-cleansing as a staple in your routine or swear by hydrating, cast-free Korean sunscreens, there’s so much to thank K-beauty for — and Amazon Prime Day is one of the best ways to restock on your faves (and maybe discover a few new-to-you brands). 

TikTok-Viral Korean Skin-Care Deals

Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream

Etude House SoonJung pH 6.5 Whip Facial Cleanser

Skin1004 Hyalu-Cica Water-Fit Sun Serum SPF 50+ PA++++

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Unless you’ve been living underneath a rock, you’ve probably heard of Cosrx‘s best-selling, Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and 92 All in One Cream — two powerful hyperpigmentation-targeting formulas that are ultra-soothing. The same goes for Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask, which intensely softens lips overnight. Skin1004’s Hyalu-Cica sunscreen applies like a serum and is chock-full of cica and hyaluronic acid to soothe sensitized skin. Polish off dirt and debris with Cosrx’s Low pH Good Morning Gel or Etude House’s foaming SoonJung cleanser.

Neogen Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen SPF 50

Innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36

Isntree Purple Protector Onion Newpair Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++

Cosrx Vitamin E Vitalizing Sunscreen SPF 50+

Korean sunscreens are in a league of their own. Innisfree’s Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36 (a 2023 Best of Beauty winner!) moisturizes and protects skin without leaving an inkling of white cast. Neogen’s Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen is another editor favorite for its light-as-air texture and quick-absorbing formula. 

Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm (180 ml)

Saturday Skin Cleanser Bundle

Manyo Factory Pure Cleansing Oil

The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Facial Foaming Cleanser

Cosrx Advanced Snail Mucin Gel Cleanser

Stock up on double-cleansing essentials so the rest of your skin care absorbs to its fullest potential — and thank us later. For your first step, try Banila Co’s iconic Clean It Zero, Hanskin’s BHA-infused oil cleanser, or Manyo’s vitamin E-rich oil.

Bundles make great gifts — even if it’s for yourself. Saturday Skin‘s Cleansing Bundle features the Melt + Cleanse balm, which won a 2023 Best of Beauty Award because it powers through makeup, dirt, and oil — but leaves skin feeling balanced and soft. For water-based cleansers, The Face Shop and Cosrx will give your skin the deep cleanse it deserves and sweep away any remaining debris, but leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated.

Goodal Green Tangerine Vita C Dark Spot Serum

Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum

Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum

Innisfree Green Tea Seed Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Anua Heartleaf 77% Soothing Toner

No conversation about serums can be had without discussing Goodal’s best-selling Vita C serum, which visibly diminishes the look of dark spots, or Beauty of Joseon’s Glow Serum, which calms inflammation with a duo of 60% propolis extract and 2% niacinamide. 

Korean skin care is all about the naturally-derived ingredients that truly soothe the moisture barrier, whether it’s licorice, heartleaf, ginseng, mugwort, rice bran, or green tea. These ingredients are spaced out throughout the entire routine — from toners to serums, as evident by the above goodies from Acwell, Anua, Innisfree, and Sulwhasoo.

Mediheal Madecassoside Blemish Pads

Toner pads are another hot item in Korean skin care and Medicube and Yadah offer intensely hydrating formulas that also gently sweep away dead skin cells. Medicube’s formula is spiked with willow bark extract (a.k.a. salicylic acid or BHA) and citric acid (AHA) to resurface skin, while Yadah’s uses witch hazel to unclog pores.

Innisfree Pore Clearing Clay Mask

Innisfree’s Pore Clearing Clay Mask absorbs excess sebum and exfoliates dead skin cells, thanks to volcanic clusters and lactic acid (a type of AHA), while I’m From’s Mugwort Mask calms troubled, irritated skin. 

Neogen Dermalogy Real Heartleaf Soothing Cream

Torriden Dive-In Low-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid Soothing Cream

Aestura Atobarrier 365 Ceramide Cream & Lotion

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Soothing Gel

Korean moisturizers are as gentle as they come and Torriden’s Dive-In gel-cream is our top pick in terms of lightweight, oil-free formulas — it’s bolstered by five types of hyaluronic acid of various molecular weights and panthenol to soothe skin. If you couldn’t tell, these Aestura and Illiyoon are powered by ceramides. Both brands are sensitive-skin-friendly, so go forth and slather these gentle, barrier-restoring formulas (from head to toe) to seal in moisture.

Haruharu Wonder Black Rice Bakuchiol Eye Cream

Some by Mi Retinol Intense Advanced Triple Action Eye Cream

Soko Glam cofounder Charlotte Cho is a fan of Haruharu Wonder‘s Black Rice Bakuchiol Eye Cream (one of the best Korean eye creams, by the way) because it features brightening and firming fermented black rice and is so gentle that it doesn’t cause milia to develop. What happens when you infuse retinol, retinal, plant-based collagen, and peptides into an eye cream? A potent yet barely-there formula that softens the look of fine lines while also giving the delicate eye area a well-deserved lift.

Medicube Age-R Ussera Deep Shot

Without a plane ticket to Seoul, we don’t have access to all of South Korea’s innovative in-office treatments but Medicube has created a few skin-care devices that give off similar results. The Age-R Booster is a favorite of Hailey Bieber and creates electro-passageways to aid in product absorption, encouraging your skin to really drink up all of the goodness you’re applying. The Age-R Ussera Deep Shot is best suited for mature skin, according to the brand’s CEO, and employs ultrasound energy and high frequency to boost collagen production.

Best Amazon Prime Day 2023 Korean Makeup Deals

Consider this section your guide to the latest and great Korean makeup has to offer — at least, what’s made it over to The selection is pretty vast, though most people might not realize it goes beyond lip tints. Let’s dig in.

Hera Sensual Spicy Nude Balm

Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint

Lip tints are basically the pinnacle of Korean makeup and affordable at that, so you’d be making a mistake if you didn’t drop one (or five) into your cart. Peripera, Dasique, Amuse, and Hera are all editor favorites, and the latter brand has one special ambassador by the name of Jennie Kim (of BLACKPINK fame). 

Etude House Play Color Eyes #Bakehouse

Amuse Seoul Eye Color Palette

Colorgram Milk Bling Shadow

Rom&nd Better Than Palette Light & Glitter Garden

Eye shadow palettes from Amuse, Etude House, and Romn&d look like they came straight from a K-pop idol’s playbook. Whenever commerce editor Sarah Han wears Colorgram’s Milk Bling Shadow, she gets tons of compliments and questions. (She prefers wearing the formula on her lower lash line to balance out her eyeliner.) 

Neogen Dermalogy Extra Slim Metal Mascara

Clio Kill Lash Superproof Mascara

Heimish Dailism Smudge Stop Mascara

Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer

People with short, straight lashes will adore mascaras from Clio, Heimish, and Neogen, which grab onto every last lash without smudging lids. Don’t forget to set up your lashes for success with the Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer, which is a translucent primer that extends the curl of your lashes.

Too Cool for School ArtClass by Rodin Shading Palette

Too Cool for School ArtClass by Rodin Blusher De Peche

These gradients from Too Cool for School not only look stunning but also lend an ultra-natural sculpt or flush to the skin.

Jung Sael Mool Masterclass Brush Set

Jung Saem Mool Masterclass Foundation Brush
