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).
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. Polish off dirt and debris with Cosrx’s Low pH Good Morning Gel or Etude House’s foaming SoonJung cleanser.
Korean sunscreens are in a league of their own. Neogen’s Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen is an editor favorite for its light-as-air texture and quick-absorbing formula, as is Abib’s Airy Sunstick, which has a curved shape to better glide over every contour of the face and body.
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 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.
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 and Anua.
Multi balms were one of the biggest trends to come out of South Korea in 2022. You can use these multitaskers to refresh dry patches of skin or even add some shimmer-free dewy highlighters, or you can swipe on a layer onto areas where your base makeup is creasing to refresh it. Give the viral Kahi balm a whirl or Thank You Farmer’s for a dose of hydration on the go.
Essences, Moisturizer & Mask Deals
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.
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, this Aestura bundle is powered by ceramides, so go forth and slather these gentle, barrier-restoring formulas (from head to toe) to seal in moisture.
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 amazon.com. The selection is pretty vast, though most people might not realize it goes beyond lip tints. Let’s dig in.
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).
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.)
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.
These gradients from Too Cool for School not only look stunning but also lend an ultra-natural sculpt or flush to the skin.
Jung Saem Mool is one of the most respected makeup artists in South Korea and her makeup line is also held in high regard. If you want to go all out, get her 10-piece Masterclass Brush Set — or you can opt for her Foundation Brush, which has a triple-cut design so it can adhere to all of the curves of your face without leaving streaks.

Whether your concerns are dullness, visible split ends, or buildup, brands like Aromatica, A’Pieu, British M, Growus, and La’Dor excel in gentle yet effective treatments and tools that’ll make your hair feel like silk and your scalp feel reborn. (British M’s Flex Gentle Brush won a Best of Beauty Award in 2022, NBD.)
