I was shopping around this month and I found some cheap prices on my favorites. but when I went to my cart the shipping was out of control. Because of that, I decided to stick to shopping on SokoGlam and Amazon for the most part. I thought I’d list some of the things I got along with some other products at great deals. Check out the 10 Best Korean Beauty Products under $25!
Did you find a great deal too? Let other readers know in the comments below.
Bonus: You can get Tony Moly Moisture Foam Cleanser for $5.75 at Ulta right now (also in store). The original price is $11.50, so if you’ve wanted to try this product, now is the time. I bought this today but haven’t tried it yet, so it didn’t make the 10 Best list because I don’t want to suggest something I don’t know much about yet. BUT, I just wanted you to know in case you want it! Ok, on to the10 Best Korean Beauty Products list!

10 Best Korean Beauty Products under $25 This Month
10. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Laniege Sleeping Lip Mask smooths the dry skin on chapped winter lips, or at anytime of the year, really. Use it consistently for at least a week to see results on really chapped lips. Load up the spatula with plenty of product (um, but still keep it reasonable. I just mean don’t do a thin layer!) and sleep with it overnight. Wake up the next morning and wipe off. Your lips will noticeably be softer and moisturized. Take it with you when you’re traveling, for long haul flights and colder destinations. This has become a staple of my routine, so I hope you try it too.
9. MISSHA All-Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk
Cult favorite and my pick for the #1 best sunblock for oily skin. Missha All-Around Safe Block Mild Essence Sun Milk is by far the best sunscreen for oily skin that I have tried. It is very watery, but coverage is good. It may take a couple passes at patting it into your skin for all the sunscreen to get rid of all the white, but it does blend easily.
Just wanted to sneak this in because it’s a nice deal from Soko Glam, priced down from $12 to $8, these high pigment creamy lip colors even hydrate dry, chapped lips. This lip cube will make dry lips look glossy and kissable! I couldn’t believe it, but it’s true. You can choose if you want to leave the color glossy and bright, or simply blend it in or apply with a lip brush for a more subdued, velvet matte finish. I love these so much. Try these, they’re a deal at $8! My favorite is the Rosy Coral, but it’s unfortunately sold out at Soko Glam. If you really want this color, try buying it on Amazon for $15.89.
7. Benton Honest TT Moisturizer Cool and Fresh Spray
If you have combination skin or acne and you haven’t been misting your face, you’re making a huge mistake. You need that extra hydration through the day, ok? Help prevent flaking/dryness by misting your face with this moisturizer. You can use it before or after you put make up on and through out the day. If you’re acne prone then you’re in luck because this mist comes with 80% tea tree leaf water, tea tree extract and sodium hyaluronate (it holds on to water and penetrates skin), and it has “low stimulation” ingredients (odds of irritation are low af).
6.Etude House Moistfull Collagen Skin
$13.61 on Amazon
Next on the10 Best Korean Beauty Products is one of my favorite moisturizing toners, enhanced with collagen. This toner smells amazing and is thicker than other toners. A cool trick is to try applying it with your bare hands instead of using a cotton pad. It lets you absorb all of the product and doesn’t waste any on the cotton pad.
Another trick is to apply this to already wet skin. So after cleansing, apply toner and pat a few times to let the toner and water absorb into your skin.
$16.86 on Amazon
It’s winter now, so you need to moisturize your skin way more than you usually do through out the year. Since I have combination skin, I use this Scinic Honey Ampoule every night.and it really helps to keep my skin moisturized and flaky skin on the low. It has honey, royal jelly, and propolis extract. Best of all, it’s not sticky, ever. Even if you put on too much.
So, how to keep this? You can pop it in the fridge for a refreshing treatment or leave it out on your counter. It comes with a spatula so you can apply it to your face. A little goes a long way. Don’t forget to keep your spatula clean, k?
4. COSRx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol
I love this so much. You can read all about this in my review, but to sum it up: it was summer. My skin was breaking out. Pores clogged. Red heat bumps on my face. Awful. I tried this and it went away so fast, it was crazy. Sometimes products have a way of amazing me, and this was one of those products!
By the way, if you have acne get all the COSRx products you can afford. You will not regret it.
3. CosRx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
$10 at Amazon
Literally the best cleanser for any skin type. Oily, acne, combination, dry, normal. It doesn’t matter. This COSRx foaming gel cleanser resets your skin’s pH. Use it after an oil-based cleanser, in the morning, at night… whenever. By resetting your skin you can get it ready to absorb the rest of your skin care routine. I love this! I literally use this every day.
2. Missha First Treatment Essence Mist
Ok, so this one is in here because I got my 50ml mist for $20 from SokoGlam and didn’t bother checking Amazon first because I’m an idiot. I could’ve gotten 120ml for just $4 more. What the hell is wrong with me? Ugh. My mistake is your gain, though because you can be a smart person and get the 120ml right now! 🙂
Missha First Treatment Essence mist is a cult favorite in the K-beauty world. It has amino acids, vitamins, fermented yeast and minerals. Using it refreshes your skin and preps it for the rest of your routine. It’s a little pricey, but it’s really one of the best and a staple of Korean skin care routines. 120ml for $24 is a steal!
1. May Coop Raw Sauce Essence
$14 for 1.35oz at Sephora
And, coming in at #1 of the 10 Best Korean Beauty Products is my favorite new essence, May Coop Raw Sauce. This isn’t easy to find at a low price outside of Sephora.
Amazingly high hydration due to concentrated maple tree sap particles that are almost the same size as bodily fluids (ew, but stick with me) that really does penetrate (ew x2 but keep going) your skin to moisturize the hell out of it. For real. I fell in love with this essence in week ONE, people. It supports skin regeneration, hydrates, improves your complexion, nourishes and can be used any time of day. Good for all skin types!
Though this is the smallest bottle, it lasts a while.
Go ahead and upgrade to the $43 version if you’re fancy.
You don’t need to spend a ton of money to look good, you just need to pick the right products and moisturize!
