About a year and a half ago we launched our very first product ever – our Peach & Lily sheet masks! We created this sheet mask set after we created the “PL Mask Lab” where we asked you for feedback on what you wanted in your dream sheet mask. You all said, big results, no harsh ingredients, no masks that slide off the face, lots of amazing ingredients, no stickiness after application, and basically an instant glow as well as radiance the next day. It took us 18 months and over 500 formula submissions to perfect the formula to meet exactly what you wanted.

We launched with excitement and nervousness – would this dream sheet mask collection meet your standards? We sold out in a week (and we made a lot of these masks) and you were patient with us for a full month as we sought to bring them back into stock ASAP. Quick backstory: when a product is sold out like truly sold out and not “sold out” it usually takes about 4 weeks to manufacture them, but if you’re lucky, you can see if suppliers might rush things for you. Our sheet masks were truly completely sold out and so we rushed our suppliers to make more STAT.

Since then, we’ve been making sure to make a lot of units at once to ensure they never run out again. Eighteen months later, almost 700 five-star reviews later (and that’s only the reviews on our site!), two Teen Vogue Acne Awards, one Peach & Lily Best of Kbeauty Award, and many glowing faces later, we have exciting news for you!

We heard you loud and clear. A sheet mask set of three is not enough! You told us you want more. You want to make sure your sheet mask drawer/box/bag is always full. You also told us that you want to mask daily, and you want a mask that’ll do it all but be gentle enough to use daily. So we set out to create that for you.

Without further ado, I’d love to introduce you to our Original Glow Sheet Mask Set. For a limited time only, we’ll have them retailing in eaches so that you can more easily try them, but they’ll be available through this set.

Shop The Original Glow Sheet Mask Set Here!

The Original Glow mask does exactly what the consummate sheet mask should do, according to what we’ve heard from you. It should bring back that original glow you had before the late nights, stress, and exposure to the elements. We started with a black list – no irritating ingredients, harsh chemicals, alcohol, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, parabens, EDTA, DEA, MEA, (the list really goes on here) etc. or anything that would defeat the purpose of using a sheet mask.

And instead, we thought about what would really bring back that original glow. Well, to begin with, let’s ensure hydration is ample. And then antioxidants are blasted into skin. Let’s also ensure that brightening agents are in there. How about a super gentle daily exfoliating effect? Yes. And of course, ingredients that help plump and firm skin because that original glow is as much about bounciness as it is about dewy, luminous, clear skin.

So we worked with our partner lab to cocktail peptides, AHA, ginseng, mushroom extract, camelia extract, soybean extract, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, centella asiatica extract, avocado extract, ceramide, licorice, skullcap root extract, turmeric and chamomile and we tried so many combinations of this to see what would yield the most impressive results.

Creating a product formula is a lot like cooking! A little too much of one ingredient and the whole formula can feel “off” or just not as impactful when it comes to results. That’s the part we love the best – a formula is about the science, but there’s a big “art” part of formulating as well. And that’s why time and attention is required to perfect formulas to produce results that wow.

The proof is in the pudding with this one. Here are third party before and after of what just one application of this sheet mask can do!

With this sheet mask, you can use one whenever you’d like, but we’ve tested it for daily use so that you can truly see results compound in magnificent ways. It’s up to you, but now you have a pack of twenty to use as you see fit!

We hope you love this value pack! We heard you, you want to buy a lot at a time in a value pack. So here’s what we’re promising: each mask is $6, but in a value pack, you get to have all twenty for less than $6 each.

Here’s to getting that original glow back!

As always, cheers to radiance!

Here at the Peach & Lily HQ, we know our product lines quite well. I mean, really well.

Whether it be through working on the supply chain, business relations, or marketing, Team Peach & Lily is living and breathing these products. And while we can’t complain about our access to dozens of our amazing serums, moisturizers, cleansers and masks, it’s oftentimes hard to narrow down our favorite products. I’m not even talking about holy grail products, because let’s be real, those come from extensive rounds of trial and error. But, what we can identify are those products we know will be with us through changing times. They’re reliable and convenient — so much so that we’re taking them with us on our travels wherever summer takes us.

Also, I should disclose that we did not plan our answers — there are just some products that are so universally loved and seriously made for summer weather. Whether you’re gallivanting overseas or staying put this summer, these are the products that should be on your radar for a radiant summer glow.

Who: Alicia Yoon, CEO
Where: Jeju Island in June
What: I’m carrying my full routine, but here are two highlights:
Eco Your Skin Layering Essence in the Moisturizing flavor because it’s going to be hot with a lot of exposure to sun, which can all lead to skin getting dehydrated.
Peach Slices Citrus-Honey Aqua Glow as I need a moisturizer that’ll both serve me well in a dry flight (it’s super hydrating and it doesn’t pill when I layer on a few layers) or use one layer on the Island (and it’s so lightweight that it won’t feel heavy or be too much for the humid weather). I need a travel-friendly versatile moisturizer so this is definitely making it into my travel bag.

Who: Fei Li, Operations Manager
Where: California, end of May
What: Peach Slices Citrus-Honey Aqua Glow – It’s a great moisturizer for summer – super light and refreshing.
SaturdaySkin Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist: Goes along with the theme of light and refreshing. I like to keep my skin dewy and hydrated.

Who: Estefanía Hyon,B2B Accounts & Strategic Partnerships Manager
Where: I don’t have travel plans yet
What: Koh Gen Do Cleansing Water Cloth – love these, they remove absolutely everything
Abib Hydration Gel Water Tube – it’s really light and works great as base moisturizer before makeup

Who: Shannon Ng, Graphic Designer
Where: I don’t have travel plans yet
What: Abib Hydration Creme Water Tube because it’s really easy and convenient. I’s also really instagram worthy.
Peach & Lily Reset Button Mask because my skin gets irritated really easily and the mask always calms my redness but also leaves it hydrated.

Jacqueline Paccione, Executive Assistant & Office Manager
Where: Spain
What: Peach & Lily Reset Button Mask is incredible for in-flight or post flight! It helps to calm the skin & restore hydration (and of course, glow)!
Acne Spot Dotsfor those little blemishes that always seem to pop up.
Abib Hydration Gel Water Tube is the perfect moisturizer that’s also travel friendly, which is a bonus! It includes all natural ingredients, no harsh chemicals, is completely lightweight and perfect for summer time.

Who: Sejin Hwang, Business Development Manager
Where: Shanghai, June
What: Because it will be hot and humid in Shanghai, I will take Abib’s Hydration Gel Water Tube to use during the day as it’s both light and hydrating without making my face feel too heavily covered. I will also take Femmue’s Ideal Oil which I can use by itself or blend with Hydration Gel to give my skin the proper treatment it needs to recover and deeply hydrate overnight ready for the next day.

Who: Mina Youn,COS, Talent, B2B & Strategic Partnerships
Where: Acadia National Park, August
What: Ariul Purefull Cleansing Tissues – I love how well it removes makeup and grime. They’re easy to carry around and smell great!
Peach Slices Citrus-Honey Aqua Glow because it keeps you hydrated without making you feel or look greasy. It’s perfect for the summer when you don’t want anything heavy or sticky to layer under your sunscreen.
Ground Plan 24 Hour Secret Mist – it’s refreshing, cooling and soothing, which is perfect for when you’re in the sun a little too long.

Who: Laura Jung, Community
Where: Northern Italy
What: I’ll always have on me the Ground Plan 24 Hour Secret Mist. The smaller size will fit in any bag to pull out on the go whenever you need that midday (or hourly, really) pick-me-up. The Eco Your Skin Hyaluronic Acid Booster Serum is light, small and contains just the right amount of serum for a week-long trip.

Who: Suzanne Sarmadi, Customer Service Associate
Where: Aruba
What: I definitely will be taking the May Coop Mini Raw Sauce, because it is small enough to travel and intensively hydrates and nourishes the skin after being out in the hot drying sun. I will also bring along the Reset Button Soothe & Restore Mask, for getting a lot of sun exposure to the face, which has all calming ingredients in it.

And finally, the team member who has the most say about their summer routine…

Who: Edward Scott, Husband
Where: Utah
What: I am fortunate enough to have access to whatever Alicia brings with her, which is a lot. We happen to have similar skin types, which is very convenient (and adorable?). If I am traveling alone, I look to multi-tasking products. For cleansing, a simple bar soap in a plastic bag. I use our Abib Facial Soap Black Brick, which gives me benefits of both oil-based and water-based cleansing in one. I like to leave the lather on my face for 30 seconds or so to get the full effect. I often use it for the rest of my body, too, which is a decadent perk of my relationship with Peach & Lily. I also like the SRB Rice Bran Powder Wash, which Alicia normally has on hand. There’s no liquid so it’s no problem at airport security. Toner/essence is tough – often they are too big to carry on. My all-time favorite – Be The Skin Nutrition Power Toner– falls in this “too large” camp. Often I will bring the Mini May Coop Raw Sauce, instead – toner and essence in one in compact package. For serum/moisturizer there is one clear choice: Peach Slices Citrus-Honey Aqua Glow. It’s a delightful product and perhaps the best performance/price ratio in all of skincare. That’s it. Happy travels.

And there you have it! All that you need to carry all summer long.

Finding the right skincare regimen for your skin takes time and effort as your skin conditions do not always stay the same. It takes trial and error to find the right products that make your skin happy and stay happy. Here at Peach & Lily, we’ve outline three tried and true ways to get that radiant skin you’ve always wanted. We’re ready for luminous skin this summer!

Each skincare product is made with a different key active ingredient and by identifying these elements, you are able to add the right energy to your regime to help your skin get what it needs to recover, regenerate and hydrate.

  1. Add water energy for better skin hydration

A solution for dry skin is quite straight forward and simple – add hydration. Really, it’s just that. However, it’s not just about adding more moisture into the skin. It’s about finding the right source of the moisture and how long it can stay in the skin for to keep your skin hydrated longer.

Products we recommend:

  • May Coop Raw Sauce – contains 93% maple tree sap
  • Ground Plan 24Hour Secret Mist Plus – contains 85% Witch Hazel Extract

These products can instantly hydrate your skin and also keep that hydration in the skin for much longer than purified water due to their molecule makeup.

  1. Add plant energy for anti-oxidation

When your skin is stressed, it ages faster. To quickly prevent your skin from going into the ageing stage, we need to wake its senses.

Products we recommend:

  • Be The Skin Botanical Nutrition Power Serum – contains botanical herbs that penetrate into the skin
  • Femmue Ideal Oil – 100% natural oil containing 67% pure Camelia oil, leaving the skin hydrated, not greasy!

Wake your skin up from ageing with these products that are full of plant energy. These ingredients have regenerative qualities that your skin will love. And don’t forget to take a deep breath while using them. Their aroma will also awaken your stressed senses.

  1. Add complex energy for brightening

By adding complex energy such as vitamins and peptides into your skincare regime, you can help bring back your skin’s natural shine and radiance that will be the base of any skincare or makeup to follow.

Products we recommend:

  • Eco Your Skin Booster Serum Vitamin A / E / B5
  • Abib Hypoderma SP1-2gF Serum

These two products contain the necessary vitamins that will target the conditions that cause dull or rough skin. Say hello to bright, smooth and radiant skin!

Sometimes, a company is born out of great, lifelong passion, and, sometimes, a seed is planted and grows naturally.

Introducing: Ground Plan

In her twenties, Kim Yoon-kyoung ran an online mall, Bagazimuri, selling clothes, hats, and accessories, and she wouldn’t say she had a background in cosmetics or the science of skincare. However, as she entered her thirties and had a child, she started to get interested in natural skincare, reading everything that was posted on social media and visiting pop-ups, feeling much like she was reliving the experience of first starting Bagazimuri.

That led her to develop one product — the 24 Hour Secret Mist — and demand for it grew organically as people shared the product on social media, a demand so high she sold 1 million Secret Mists in just 24 months.

That was 2014. That was the start of Ground Plan. Today, Ground Plan has 27 products, and it’s our pleasure to bring 10 of Ground Plan’s most popular skincare products to the U.S. for the first time and introduce them to you.

Ground Plan’s philosophy is rooted in its commitment to use 100% natural ingredients that aren’t watered down or diluted. Kim was inspired to create products that were clean, not irritating, and free of toxins when she was pregnant. Ground Plan maintains that same principle today.

These products focus on plant-based ingredients, reflecting Ground Plan’s belief that lessons for good, healthy skin can come from the earth — hence the name Ground Plan.

Ground Plan seeks to simplify a beauty plan, creating products that will fit easily into people’s busy schedules and lives by working quickly, effectively, and simply. It’s no wonder that moms have been loving this brand for use on their babies!

We at Peach and Lily spend a lot of time curating the best products for you, and we believe these ten products will help revolutionize your skin. They are all foundational products, from the 24 Hour Secret Mist that started it all to two gentle, hydrating cleansers that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils and damage your skin barrier to a 1-week ampoule plan that will brighten your skin and prevent wrinkles.

There’s also a soothing exfoliating toner that’s gentle enough for all skin types and for daily use, as well as an essenceovernight pack and a moisture cream, both of which are lightweight and absorb quickly into your skin, providing instant hydration.

As you’ve probably noticed, hydration is a key element to these products because well-hydrated skin is healthy skin. Ground Plan has an eye cream that uses three kinds of plant-based oil extracts to hydrate and strengthen the skin around your eyes to prevent those pesky fine lines from forming, and their essence uses plant stem cell extracts to encourage cell turnover in your skin so it stays bouncy and glowy. Last but not least, there is a peeling gel that exfoliates dead skin cells and impurities from your skin, except it’s been formulated in a way that won’t irritate your skin and will leave it moist and hydrated.

We’re so excited to share these products with you! We can’t wait to see how they revolutionize your skin and fit into your busy lives!

Cheers to radiance!

Thank you to everyone who tuned in on our Beauty Master Class with the very knowledgeable and eloquent Renée of Gothamista. This first Master Class was so special to us because not only were we able to welcome our loyal fans into our brand new loft for the first time, we were able to kick off what we envision will be a successful recurring series. We want to bring our products to life through these Master Classes and give you guys an informative look at how to use them properly and effectively.

This first Master Class was all about 탱탱한 피부. That is, “taeng taeng” skin. We’re talking plumped up, juicy, bouncy skin that give the face an overall glow of youthfulness and health. Students came in eager and curious. In a sort of ritualistic way, we removed our makeup together, sheet masked together and attentively learned about the wonders of a skincare routine that proves results together. It was amazing to see everyone just wipe off their makeup enthusiastically without the embarrassment or hesitation one would normally associate public masking with.

Alicia and Renée hand-selected ten products to achieve the perfect “taeng taeng” skin and so many of you guys who couldn’t make the class requested a round-up of all the products mentioned during the Master Class. What initially was supposed to be a list of about ten products, Alicia and Renée just went on and on about all the incredible products we have here at Peach & Lily to achieve taeng taeng skin for all skin types. Without further ado…

  1. Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Tissue
  2. Aromatica Coconut Cleansing Oil
  3. Atopalm Facial Cleansing Foam
  4. Shangpree Facial Mousse Cleanser
  5. May Coop Raw Sauce
  6. The Lotus Essence with Lotus Leaf
  7. Eco Your Skin Layering Essence (Anti-Wrinkle)
  8. Eco Your Skin O2 Melting Serum
  9. Abib Hypoderma SP1-2GF Serum
  10. Femmue Vital C Serum
  11. Eco Your Skin Volufiline Eye Essence
  12. Eco Your Skin Meso Ampoule
  13. Peach & Lily Chubby Cheeks Face Mask
  14. Eco Your Skin Booster-serum: Hyaluronic Acid
  15. Shangpree Gold Premium Modeling “Rubber” Mask
  16. Peach Slices Citrus-Honey Aqua Glow 

To see what Alicia and Renée have to say about these products and how they use them, watch the full video coverage of the event below.

There are products that receive rave reviews from everyone who’s tried them, approved by the experts, and have that x-factor: once you try it, it becomes an instant staple. These products have risen to the top among a highly curated selection of popular products and received the Best of Korean Beauty Award by Peach & Lily. We share here why this product is so singularly outstanding.

Don’t forget to also check out Celeste Wilson on our Influencer Spotlight of the Day!

May Coop Raw Sauce

Keeping skin well hydrated is foundational to healthy, radiant skin. Dehydrated skin is often at the root of many of our skincare woes – breakouts, redness, premature aging and even hyperpigmentation.
So, one of the big questions in skincare research has always been how-to-keep-skin-hydrated. Drinking water is amazing for overall health, but doesn’t necessarily hydrate skin directly. What helps are topical humectants – ingredients that bind moisture to skin. However, a lot of the humectants out there are larger than our pores so the moisture is bound to the surface of the skin and the humectants have a hard time reaching the deeper layers of the skin. That’s why sometimes there’s that feeling of seeing your outer skin glowing, but somehow your inner skin still feels tight and dehydrated.
The May Coop Raw Sauce is especially loved because it quenches that deep inner skin thirst (insert high-fives and kudos here to May Coop). The base of the formula is maple tree sap, known to have molecules that are much smaller than our pores. This means, the main base which helps deliver the formula into our skin pretty much just sinks right into skin.
The formula has hyaluronic acid, chestnut, olive, black currant, grape, rice, soybean extracts to name some of the superfood ingredients included in the maple tree sap base. Think of this as hydrating, soothing, nourishing ingredients being express-delivered to every corner and layer of skin. This base is what makes this such a superstar product resulting in reviews that seem to make this product almost unbelievable. The reviews don’t just rave about hydration boosts, but span excitement about pores looking tighter to dark spots disappearing to sagging skin getting a lift. That’s what happens when ingredients can be more effectively delivered to the parts of skin that can make them go to work for you.
If you haven’t gotten on the Raw Sauce bandwagon yet – the travel size (which lasts a long time) might be the place to start. But we told you first, you may never look back again.

These products have risen to the top among a highly curated selection of popular products and received the Best of Korean Beauty Award by Peach & Lily. We share here why this product is so singularly outstanding.

JungSaemMool Essential Star-cealer Foundation

You spent a long time meticulously applying makeup. Then you walk by that brightly lit mirror or you see yourself in photos the next day and you’re dismayed to see that the concealer under your eyes or covering your breakouts is doing anything but concealing. Your concealer is instead acting as a spotlight to the fact that you’re concealing something. Concealer-raccoon-eyes, we’ve all been there.

Korea’s most iconic and celebrated makeup artist, Jung Saem Mool, who has an avid following on Instagram and YouTube (and her own TV show!) has been leading the makeup scene in Korea for decades now.

She rose to fame quickly because of her signature finish on skin. Skin looks like skin always with her, but somehow the healthiest, most vibrant and flawless version of your own skin. She can take hours on just your skin, yet when she’s done, you walk out looking like you have no makeup on. In fact, in her renowned beauty academy, foundation alone is a three-month part of the makeup course. Three months. All you do is learn how to apply foundation perfectly.

And then something so exciting happened. After going into product development for a few years, she finally launched her own line named after her, Jung Saem Mool. And her hero product launched with accolades and awards and it basically flying off shelves and found in the beauty bags of every editor, backstage makeup artist, celebrities, and beauty fanatics. Meet the Star-cealer Foundation.

One side of this streamlined compact case is concealer of the smoothest, most velvety texture. The other side of the case holds the liquid foundation. In the middle of the two products is a mixing pad that looks sort of like a skin patch but made of easily wipe-able plastic. You can mix however much concealer you want in with your foundation with your puff-sponge that comes in the case on the skin patch. Or if you want you can just use the foundation or just the concealer. The idea is that you mix in the ratio you want on various parts of the face. However, because of the way you’re mixing it onto the skin patch and because you’re mixing the products in together before applying to face, all of this allows for a perfectly, seamless finish. Your concealer is never noticeable. You basically walk out with what looks like a makeover from Jung Saem Mool herself, in a matter of minutes. Her brilliant product has made makeup application so foolproof, no matter the lighting, the photo taken, the time of day.

This product already has so many (deserving) awards. Well, we had to add another one to the list with our Best of Kbeauty Award. It is simply the best.

There are products that receive rave reviews from everyone who’s tried them, approved by the experts, and have that x-factor: once you try it, it becomes an instant staple. These products have risen to the top among a highly curated selection of popular products and received the Best of Korean Beauty Award by Peach & Lily. We share here why this product is so singularly outstanding.

The Lotus Essence with Lotus Leaf

This essence has reviews that are astoundingly good.
“I’ve noticed an improvement in skin elasticity”
“My face looks brighter and feels softer”
“I’ve seen a dramatic difference in the lines between my eyebrows and on my forehead”
“There is a noticeable change in my skin texture”
“Within 2 days my acne went down”
How does one simple essence transform skin so quickly and so dramatically – and with such rave reviews?

It all comes down to a special white lotus leaf flower. The Lotus includes 89% white lotus leaf extract in this essence. The base of the product is this rich extract – not water. This white lotus leaf flower grows on the lush, pristine Jeju Island (some call this island the Hawaii of Korea) and studies have shown that this special flower has a uniquely high amount of antioxidants and flavonoids. Antioxidants and flavonoids play an important role in neutralizing free radicals that can damage our cells and contribute to signs of aging and deterioration.  The super-concentration of free-radical-fighting antioxidants in the white lotus leaf extract is only part of what makes this essence so special. This essence is also formulated to sink into skin quickly and efficiently.  The antioxidant effects are delivered where they will have most impact, rather than just sitting on the surface of skin.

The Lotus is the only beauty brand (in the world!) that has the rights to use this special, potent flower from Jeju Island.  This brand and this essence are truly singular.

Infused with rich botanical extracts and niacinamide, this essence goes the extra mile and serves our skin a perfect elixir of pure luxury for powerful results.

We love the unique subtly sweet floral scent that wafts away upon application, the watery yet slightly viscous texture that absorbs quickly, and we cannot get enough of how supple, dewy and soft our skin feels immediately after application.

Those who have tried this essence can’t stop with just one bottle. Once you’ve seen the effects of this beautiful white lotus flower from Jeju Island, you will want to use it again and again.

These products have risen to the top among a highly curated selection of popular products and received the Best of Korean Beauty Award by Peach & Lily. We share here why this product is so singularly outstanding.

Peach Slices Citrus Honey Aqua Glow

I know when people or companies try to tell me that a product will work for any skin type, it’s nearly impossible to believe. Now as the packaging designer of Citrus Honey Aqua Glow itself, you may think of course she loves this product– but try to hear me (and the other rave reviewers) out.

I am not skincare aficionado. I have however, learned a thing or two from working at Peach & Lily, trying products, reading ingredients lists, and just being around Alicia while she tests and researches numerous formulas. One thing I can definitely attest to is being in-tune with my skin to the point of paranoia –I notice every bump, new mole, or rash; Maybe it’s my attention to detail, the woes of a designer. But this thing works and you can see it every application.

During product development I wasn’t the first to test it. So, when the rave reviews came in from members of our team with truly all skin types (sensitive skin, acne, oily skin you name it), I couldn’t wait to test it out and start the packaging. I was a bit skeptical at first, as how could it possibly help with all of the team’s skin issues? But after my first try of Aqua Glow, I was hooked; but not in a “I’m craving chocolate today, so I need my short-lived fix” sort of way, but more like “My skin is parched, sometimes oily, and I’m going to put on make-up. What can I reach for that will fix my face right now?” and I started to reach for this cream every single day.

Citrus Honey Aqua Glow (affectionately “Aqua Glow” for short in our office), is a super balanced serum-moisturizer-in-one. The citrus extracts, which also attribute to the fresh and gentle scent, are brightening while honey, ceramides, and other hydrating ingredients add that plump, supple feeling everyone craves. This petite bottle can give that glowy, dewy, but not-greasy look to just about anyone, whether you have normal, ultra oily or dry skin–or some combination of the them all. For me, the perfect gel moisturizer has to balance where it’s super hydrating (like most), yet still nourishing and not instantly dissipating from skin (hard to find) and this cream hits that sweet spot. It’s not greasy at all, and has this instant absorbability that leaves the perfect smooth base that makes foundation or other base makeup set on your face with a natural “this is my real skin” type of finish.

One of the best parts (for me and for you)? This product is a true steal. I have never been so satisfied with any priced everyday moisturizer and I have tried a lot working at Peach & Lily. I currently have two sad, aqua glow tubes on my dresser at their last drops that I keep squeezing “last” applications out of (you really don’t need much) and I plan on getting a fresh tube. At $12, maybe I should get five.

These products have risen to the top among a highly curated selection of popular products and received the Best of Korean Beauty Award by Peach & Lily.

Eco Your Skin Volufiline 15 Eye Essence

If you feel like you’re not getting enough out of your eye creams, you’re not alone. The eye area is the most delicate skin on our whole body and that means moisture loss typically happens the most easily.  And once moisture is lost, then everything else tends to go – collagen can break down faster, fine lines appear more deeply etched, and dark circles form or become more pronounced.

This is exactly why one of Korea’s most cutting-edge and beloved spas, Eco Your Skin, created the eye essence. Unlike an eye cream that is typically meant to create a protective moisture barrier to prevent moisture loss, the eye essence is focused on delivering moisture deep into the eye area. Glycerin, hyaluronic acid and botanical extracts help impart and bind moisture to the deeper layers of the eye. Along with these ingredients, skin-firming peptides and skin-brightening niacinamide are also delivered to the skin. As if it isn’t enough that this eye essence takes care of helping these deeper layers of skin, the formula also brilliantly delivers instant results. Volufiline and polylactic acid fill in fine lines leaving the eye area smoothed out with a velvety finish. The eye area is instantly smoother, more refined, and makes for creaseless makeup application. The texture is a soft, light, gel that leaves behind juicy, dewy radiance. The best part? This is so hydrating and somehow seals it all in, so there’s no need for an eye cream over this eye essence.

Here are some reviews that capture our sentiment:
