There are lotions to make your skin soft and supple. There are serums to make your skin radiant and glowing. Even mists to refresh your makeup during a long day at school or work. But what if there is a product which could do all those things and more? The K-beauty gods above have answered the prayers!
Balm has a velvety consistency and known as the most basic beauty product on the market. It’s probably lying at the bottom of a makeup bag or drawer, unused and unloved. However, it has quickly transformed into an essential in K-beauty lovers’ daily skincare routine.
Here are three reasons why balm will be the next K-beauty trend (and how investing in a balm is the right way to go!)
What makes balm attractive to K-beauty lovers is the multi-purpose use. The fact the product can be used anywhere saves time and energy because no one has the patience to use a dozen products daily. We recommend Etude House Play 101 Stick Oil Balm for multi-purpose use because it can be used on the face, body, and even hair.
A little goes a long way in K-beauty
Applying a small amount of product onto the skin before makeup can improve the texture and ‘fill in’ enlarged pores to create a smooth base for foundation. A little definitely goes a long way when it comes to balm and the results will be effective! We recommend 3 Concept Eye Pore Silky Balm. It will be a treat for your skin – flawless and porcelain like, who could resist?
The ingredients used to make balm are natural butters and oils. The most popular are Shea butter and macadamia seed oil which help to nourish and moisturise. It can also be an anti-inflammatory for blemish-prone and irritated skin. The Face Shop FACE It Oil Cut Pore Balm has Shea butter, mango seed butter, carrot root extract and oil, and even sunflower seed oil for extra moisture.
