Introduce Mom to K-Beauty This Mother's Day

Why not get mom something a little different this year and introduce her to the super funky (and effective) world of K-beauty. For those not in the know, K-beauty is the term for all the wonderful lotions and potions from South Korea that have recently become available stateside. These products combine South Korea’s high-tech expertise with natural ingredients to create a whole new approach to skin care. Stuffed with the essences of fruits, plants, and flowers, they will make mom feel pampered and make her skin look better than ever. Below are some of my favorites:

Blithe Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum

A serum and moisturizer hybrid combined in a 'pressed serum' format that is packed with 60% Chaga Mushroom extract harvested from the pristine tundras. What will it do for mom? The product aims to moisturize and brighten skin in just a few applications. ($49, glowrecipe.com).

 

Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine

The 30-single use exfoliating pads are soaked in a formula filled with resveratrol, a component of red wine that is naturally fermented and filled with AHAs that aids the exfoliation process. Resveratrol is also an antioxidant that reduces aging by preventing free radicals from pigmenting or forming wrinkles on the skin. Not only does it contain beneficial ingredients for effective results, but it also smells amazing! ($27, sokoglam.com).

Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask 

All mothers cherish sleep and this mask doubles up on the benefits of a good night’s slumber. Glow’s first branded mask, this amazing product uses watermelon, a traditional ingredient used in Korea to soothe irritated, inflamed skin. This product both exfoliates and hydrates and Mom will wake up with a lovely glow. ($45 glowrecipe.com)
