We're so excited to launch our Best of K-Beauty Award series. After months of reading through your reviews, poring over your survey answers (we emailed you last year asking about your favorite K-beauty products), digging into formulas and results, we saw 17 products that rose to the top. These stood out over 500 popular products, many of which have been called “skincare holy grail products.”
Over the next few weeks we will be highlighting not only these 17 miracle products but also 17 influencers who have helped educate people about K-beauty and skincare. Here’s a little peek into their world:
