Hey guys! I’ve been in search for some new products to try this fall/winter season. The trend these days seem to be oil serums. I love the idea of these because I love using oils and serums are bees knees in your skincare routine. So here’s a list I’ve compiled of some of the hottest products on the market here in Korea.
1.Sum 37 Secret Oil (120,000KRW)
This one isn’t really a oil serum but I’ve been seeing this everywhere so I thought I’d put it in the list. This is a anti-aging oil that uses fermentation. It claims to moisturize, tighten, and nourish the skin for a more youthful looking skin. They recommend that you use it with the Sum 37 Secret Essence (80,000KRW). That’s 200,000 for both…
2. Darphin Luminating Oil Serum (100,000KRW)
Micro-encapsulated essential oils of citrus, florals, cedar wood, and ginger help illuminate and revitalize skin. I’m sure that this smells amazing and 90% of is it of natural origin.
3. Hera Oil Serum Magic Formula (85,000KRW)
This has a very interesting formula. It’s a mixture of gel, water, and oil. So it has a fresh feeling gel finish with the lightness of a watery essence and deep nourishment of an oil. 60% of the formula is oil.
4. Innisfree Ginger Oil Serum (28,000KRW)
This also has a light gel texture that is infused with ginger oil. Ginger strengthens and revitalizes tired skin. They have a light and rich version so you can decide what level of hydration your skin needs.
5. Neogen White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop (22,400)
This is a nonsticky oil serum the retexturizes, whitens, and nourishes the skin. The White Truffle has lots of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals than black truffle. It also has tiny oil capsules that burts as you apply it to the skin.
6. The Face Shop The Therapy Oil Drop Anti-aging Serum (28,000KRW)
This one seems to be sold out online but it uses a oil blend of marigold, olive oil, oat seeds, and bay leaves. It claims to have an anti-aging effect while providing intense hydration to the skin.
7. SK-II Facial Treatment Oil (169,000KRW)
This is a mix of six oils and is a golden ratio combination of oil and Pitera Essence.
8. Biothem Blue Therapy Serum in Oil Night (85,000KRW)
The oil in this dissolves in water! The ingredients are very interesting. I’ve never heard of sea sugar but it’s also has a mix of omega 3, youth algae, and blue algae. It also has added adenosine that helps with wrinkles.
9. Nature Republic Argan 20 Oil Essence (16,900KRW)
This is the cheapest of the bunch. This contains fermented argan oil that has been kept at 20 degrees Celcius and provides your skin with improved elasticity and hydration. This also has a gel like texture.
10. Shu Uemura Ultimate Oil in Essence (130,000KRW)
This is the most expensive in this list. 8 oils are blended into an essence that is supposedly works miracles on your wrinkles.
