OUR FAVORITE PRODUCT: Nude H & C 7 Hand Cream (Rosewood, Mandarine, Lavandin)

When it comes to packaging, skincare brand tamburins is easily a favorite of ours. Its hand creams, available in two different scents, are designed with sophisticated tubes featuring dainty chains that connect to the shiny gold caps. They look almost like luxury handbags if you ask us, except they are filled with nourishing cream that replenishes the skin. The brand also boasts a beautifully-bottled toner, a fragrance range, as well as a newly launched Tiger Leaf serum.

OUR FAVORITE PRODUCT: Lip Paradise Intense Satin Lipstick

Covered in marble patterns and accents of gleaming rose gold, Dear Dahlia‘s makeup line is probably one of the most photogenic on the K-beauty market. Not only are its lipsticks incredibly Instagram-friendly, but the formula is also often praised for its rich pigmentation and smooth texture, thanks to the Dahlia Variabilis Flower extract that’s mixed into the ingredients. You won’t be able to take your eyes off of the brand’s eyeshadows and blushes either.

OUR FAVORITE PRODUCT: Petal Spa Oil to Foam Cleanser

A K-beauty name that’s been gaining popularity stateside, Mamonde offers a selection of skincare and makeup products that are formulated with flowers such as hibiscus, honeysuckle and lotus. In particular, the brand’s fan-favorite Petal Spa Oil to Foam Cleanser features a vegan, rose-infused formula that helps gently remove makeup while also moisturizing and purifying the skin. Aptly designed with floral motifs, the packaging is another reason why you should add this cleanser to your top shelf.

OUR FAVORITE PRODUCT: Mood Recipe Collection

An in-house beauty brand by STYLENANDA, 3CE is well-loved by makeup enthusiasts for its candy-colored products ranging from lipsticks and foundation, to blushes and makeup brushes. Our editor-favorite is the Mood Recipe collection, which is made up of tone-on-tone eyeshadows, blushes and lip colors coming in a variety of wearable, everyday shades. The tonal packaging is simple but nonetheless aesthetically-pleasing.

OUR FAVORITE PRODUCT: Itaewon 565 Candle

With over 30 different scents in its collection, Korean fragrance brand Soohyang has earned a cult-following not only in its hometown, Seoul, but also across the globe. Packaged in its signature pastel pink boxes, its stylish candles and diffusers are currently stocked in a number of retailers in New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong among other cities. Our top pick would have to be the Itaewon 565 candle. Named after the address of Soohyang’s first location, the bestselling scent is infused with green floral notes.
