From the sight of beautiful bouquets of red roses to the smell of freshly made chocolates wafting in the air, Valentine’s Day is here! Quarantine and restricted lockdown measures may make it difficult for you to meet your significant other, but there’s no need to despair. There are plenty of ways to be both creative and resourceful given such strange, new circumstances.
Treating your partner, and even getting yourself a product or two (you deserve it!), is a foolproof way to show love this Valentine’s Day amid a socially safe distance. Still looking for the perfect gift? We’ve got you covered! Here are some of our K-Beauty favorites and holy grails worth adding to your shopping cart.
Banila Co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm
A cult favorite for a reason, the entryway to the black hole of Korean skincare for many beauty lovers is the award-winning Banila Co. Clean It Zero. This takes a permanent spot in our vanities because it easily dissolves all kinds of makeup, leftover sunscreen, and dirt after a long day, leaving skin clean and refreshed. Need more convincing? One tub is sold every three seconds!
COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All-in-One Cream
This duo powerhouse from COSRX is a dream team! Infused with snail secretion filtrate, it heals and repairs broken skin while fighting inflammation and restoring health to dull skin. Use COSRX’s Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence for intense hydration and the COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All-in-One Cream to reduce signs of aging. With allantoin, the moisturizer is so potent that it can even double as an eye cream!
Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner
To nourish skin deeply, try the Instree Green Tea Fresh Toner formulated with centella asiatica to replenish and relieve skin. With Green Tea Extract, too, it balances and protects the skin and even has brightening properties. Best of all, with hyaluronic acid, it deeply hydrates skin. The lightweight gel formula absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue. Such a win-win!
