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). Shop Cosrx‘s best-selling products, which include the hyperpigmentation-targeting Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and 92 All in One Cream.

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. Skin1004 Hyalu-Cica is a TikTok-viral hit that applies like a serum and is chock-full of cica and hyaluronic acid to soothe sensitized skin.

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 or Hanskin’s BHA-infused oil cleanser. Polish off any remaining debris with Cosrx’s Low pH Good Morning Gel or Etude House’s foaming SoonJung cleanser.

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. Slather on Aestura‘s Atobarrier 365 Ceramide Crem and Lotion to seal the deal — well, moisture — with a potent combination of ceramide, fatty acid, and cholesterol.

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 moisturizers and mask treatments, as evident by the following goodies from Acwell, Anua, I’m From, Neogen, and Sulwhasoo.

Dry winter skin is annoying but Innisfree’s Green Tea Seed Hyaluronic Acid will give your skin some much-needed relief. Primera has finally relaunched in the U.S. as PRMR and one of its must-try products is the Youth Radiance Vitatinol Serum, which marries two ingredients you’re typically told not to mix: retinol and vitamin C — leave it to the Korean beauty industry to crack the code and deliver the two in a efficacious yet gentle formula.

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.

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.

Lip tints are basically the pinnacle of Korean makeup (hello, Peripera, Amuse, and Dasique) and affordable at that, so you’d be making a mistake if you didn’t drop one (or five) into your cart. Eye shadow palettes from Amuse, Etude House, and Romn&d are also up for grabs and look like they came straight from a K-pop idol’s playbook.
