If you're looking to buy skincare online, you might feel overwhelmed by all the options out there. There are so many brands, products, and trends to choose from, especially when it comes to Korean skincare! But don't worry, we've got you covered. Let us be your tour guide when it comes to navigating the world of Korean Skincare!
Not to toot our own horn, but Kanvas Beauty is the best place for K-beauty in Australia (and New Zealand, because we never forget about our Kiwi mates). And here’s just some of the reasons why.
Our curated list of K-Beauty brands consists of only their most high-performing and popular products.
K-Beauty refers to any cosmetic that hails from the Asian beauty mecca of Korea. The beauty industry over there is large and competitive. This means a tonne of new brands every year, high levels of beauty innovation, and early adoption of soon-to-be buzz ingredients or techniques. But not everything that glitters is gold! There are also plenty of sub-par products, or those that are merely poor imitations of others. There are also some brands that have a couple of standout hero products, but not much else worth trying. That’s where Kanvas Beauty comes in: we sift through the good and weed out the average. Whatever you see on Kanvas Beauty is tried, tested, feted, and recommended.
We’ve created a Korean Skincare collection as diverse as you are.
The target audience for Korean brands naturally tends to be Koreans. Unfortunately, what this can also mean is that K-Beauty products or ingredients don’t always suit skin tones and conditions prevalent in the rest of the world. This can be the key barrier to trying K-Beauty for some, particularly within makeup. You won’t find those limitations here. Our Korean skincare curation has something for everyone, whether its invisible sunscreens, 4C-friendly haircare, or dark-tinted BB creams. And if it’s made it on Kanvas Beauty, then it’s high performance!
Our descriptions are clear (no copy and pasted Korean translations) and include links to brands’ Buying Guides as well as individual product reviews so that you can make the right purchasing decision.
If you look at the standard description of Korean skincare products on some websites, you might find it reads rather mysteriously. This is likely because of direct translation errors. Kinda cute, yes, but also kinda unhelpful. At best, you have a vague idea of what the product’s about. At worst, it’s completely misleading. At Kanvas Beauty, our product write-ups are original, honest, and contain as much useful information as possible. Also, our badge guide summarises each product’s key features in a single glance.
Plus, we’re not just K-Beauty – we stock brands from all over the world so you can make Kanvas Beauty your complete one-stop shop for the very best in skincare and beauty!
Some of Kanvas Beauty’s best-selling K Beauty products are:
Beauty of Joseon Sunscreen: Probiotics Relief Sun Essence: An instant hit as soon as it launched, this brightening and hydrating sun lotion from the clean Hanbang brand Beauty of Joseon offers SPF50+ PA++++ protection. It’s lightweight, dries invisible, and contains lovely ingredients to unify your complexion, such as rice extracts and niacinamide.
COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch: The original and the best pimple patches! These cult hydrocolloid patches come in various sizes, and are essentially little band-aids for leaky zits, whiteheads and pustules. Not only do they magically suck all the gunk out, but they also decrease post-acne scarring and help the area heal quicker.
Heimish All Clean Balm: A hot favourite of makeup artists, this popular cleansing balm from vegan Korean skincare brand Heimish has a lemony, sherbet-like texture that melts into a silky oil upon contact with your skin. It removes every trace of makeup (including waterproof mascara), and leaves skin clean and primed for your second cleanse.
Purito Centella Green Level Recovery Cream: This lightweight, redness-fighting moisturizer packed with 50% tiger grass calms and sooths irritated skin in a jiffy. It’s the product you reach for when you’ve over-exfoliated or just feeling a little sensitive. Plus, it’s clean, cruelty-free and vegan.
Etude House My Lash Serum: Loved for both its affordability and efficacy, this gentle eyelash serum dispels the myth that these things have to be ridiculously expensive to work! My Lash Serum is specially formulated to target the health of your eyelashes for length and strength.
Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner: One of Soko Glam founder Charlotte Cho’s favourite products, this astringent toner uses a 10% concentration of licorice root extract to naturally brighten and even out the skin tone. It’s a pro at extracting dirt and debris, even after cleansing (you’ll be surprised and how much the cotton pad picks up!). And because of its skin-matching pH, it won’t dry you out, either.
Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder: The oil-soaking finishing powder of your mattifying dreams, innisfree’s holy grail No Sebum Mineral Powder use a natural mineral base for a soft-focus, airbrushed finish.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: This is Laneige’s product extraordinaire - and worth the hype! An Allure Best of Beauty award winner, this leave-on lip mask soothes and hydrates. Its patented Moisture Wrap™ forms a protective film to lock in moisture and active ingredients.
Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner: Just 7 ingredients are in this minimalist, apothecary-style Korean brand – but it still delivers spectacular results. This viscous, silky and slightly acidic toner is a Godsend for dry and dehydrated skin. It literally coats your dermis in moisture, and can be used in layers or between steps in your skincare routine.
Did you know BB Creams were a K-Beauty brand? That’s right, they are originally a creation of Dr Jart+. So are CC Creams, Essences and Cushion Foundations (the latter first brought to the market by IOPE).
