It was a close race between the best of the best in 2019. Natural ingredients like Green Tea, Orange Peel, Rice Water, and Mugwort Extract were defining main ingredients. Authenticity and honesty were two key aspects that contributed to the reputation of some of the most popular products in our community. This year also gave a new meaning to K-Beauty with the rise of the clean beauty movement. Here are your reigning 2019 skincare champions.
Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch
Acne keeps us young and agile by surprising us at every turn. We’re always on the lookout for ingredients that help us do away with these pesky blemishes. It’s only fair that one of the leading acne brands of Korean Beauty – Cosrx, presents us with a solution. The Acne Pimple Master Patch came to the rescue this year with magical lightweight patches that absorb sebum and impurities. These patches cover up the acne, sealing it from bacteria and dirt. Say hello to clear skin and goodbye to your little friends.
I’m From Rice Toner
Out of the frying pan and into our daily skincare routine! Rice Water has traditionally been known as an anti-inflammatory wonder that brightens, hydrates, and soothes our skin while providing anti-aging benefits. We love the Rice Toner from I’m From because of its nourishing formula and acne-preventing properties. Plus, it’s pretty to look at.

The Fundamental Ampule Mist is the perfect on-the-go pocket-sized refresher. This minimalistic mist delivers rich nutrients and intense hydration with the help of Mugwort, Rice, and 82% Green Tea Water. Stay fresh all year long with this dewy companion.
AROMATICA Orange Cleansing Sherbet
2019 was the year of double cleansing and we LIVED FOR IT. However, finding the right cleansing balm or oil for your skin can be kinda hit and miss. Luckily, we found comfort in this citrusy cleanser. The Orange Cleansing Sherbet is an energizing balm that hydrates, nourishes, and soothes the skin. Its hypoallergenic formula made it our go-to makeup remover.

Hubba Bubba, this mask was one for the books. The Self Aesthetics Pore Clean Bubble Mask from G9 SKIN is a deep cleansing carbonated sheet mask that’s a bubbly experience all on its own. Botanic Tannin and Bamboo Charcoal help diminish the appearance of pores while removing sebum blackheads, and dead skin cells. Refine your skin and have some fun along the way.
Son&Park Beauty Water
Beauty Water has become our 2019 toning guru. Its transformative formula has placed this chic toner right at the heart of 2019 New York Fashion Week. Willow Bark and Papaya Extract effortlessly exfoliate the skin while perfectly prepping it for the rest of your routine. Rose and Lavender Water deliver pure hydration deep into the skin and balance its natural pH level. This is one toner you don’t want to sleep on.

Why choose when you can have both? The sunscreen supremes have arrived. The Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF50+ PA+++ and Shield Fit All Comfort Green Sun SPF50+ PA++++ make for a simple yet effective addition to any skincare routine. They each boast matte finishes that ensure hydrated and fully protected skin. Be soft to the touch without paying the price of being in the sun.
