I’m sure you’ve heard by now how amazing Korean skin care is, which is why I’m going to be sharing some of the best Korean moisturizers to add to your everyday skin care routine.
It can be a little overwhelming at first trying to find the right product for your face, especially when some bottles are all in Korean, so I’m making things easier for you by breaking everything down based on skin type.
Korean skincare products have become super popular in the States, and you can really find them almost everywhere like Soko Glam, Sephora, QVC, and more.
Besides skin type, you also have to take into consideration the specific areas you want to target. For example, do you want to focus on fine lines, dry skin, acne, oil control, pigmentation, redness, or sensitivity?
There’s a lot to consider when finding the perfect new facial moisturizer product or skincare products in general. So let’s get into the 10 best Korean moisturizers, so you can take your pick!
10 of the Best Korean Moisturizers
This Midnight Blue Calming Cream is one of my favorites of all time! This facial cream is perfect if you have sensitive skin since it is made with gentle ingredients to help calm stressed skin.
If you ever have sunburn or any irritation on your skin this will be your holy grail product—it’s so versatile by calming and hydrating your skin at the same time.
The main ingredient in this cream is Guaiazulene, which is basically made from chamomile hence why it’s so soothing. The cream is a gorgeous blue color with a very light fragrance.
You’ll also love the price tag on this one since it’s more on the affordable end, starting at $25 for a jar of facial cream. I can’t recommend this product enough so if this sounds like your skin, get this product!
Coming in hot with another Klairs product—they make such quality and affordable skincare. The Rich Moist Soothing Cream is an essential basic face cream that’s perfect for all skin types.
This soothing cream is made with beta glucan, jojoba oil, and ceramides that help with hydrating your skin’s protective barrier. If you’re not familiar with beta glucan, it’s like a hyaluronic acid but better since it’s supposed to be even more hydrating and effective!
This cream has a very fresh smell that will not irritate your skin, and it’ll leave your skin feeling light but very moisturized.
You can purchase it for an affordable price of $23 and the product lasts for a while since you won’t have to use too much product—a little bit of this goes a long way.
The Moistfull Collagen Cream is a great fragrance-free moisturizer with a gel-like texture that helps dry combination skin.
It has a high concentration of collagen mixed with vitamin E to help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. You only need about a pinch-sized amount since the cream absorbs quickly into the skin and it won’t leave your face greasy.
The texture of your skin will feel extremely soft and smooth. You can pick this up for $24, which is a super reasonable price for a collagen-based product.
If you have dry and aging skin, this is the product you’ve been looking for. The Super Ceramide 100 Renewal Cream has key ingredients like centella asiatica and green tea leaf.
Since there are 5 ceramides and hyaluronic acid, it helps restore the skin barrier on your face. After a few uses, you’ll notice your skin start to glow and radiate from within—literally.
The renewal cream blends easily on the skin and I cannot recommend enough trying this product out at night. You’ll wake up to your skin looking plump, youthful, and so so smooth.
The scent is clean and light so you won’t get headaches from smelling something strong all day. This one costs a little more compared to the products I shared earlier, but well worth it at $34.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Laneige before—I love love their lip masks! But have you tried their moisturizers?
The Water Bank Moisture Cream is amazing for people with very dry skin. It’s made with mineral-rich extracts to help strengthen your skin’s moisture retention.
The hyaluronic acid is amazing for making your skin glowy and hydrated. Say goodbye to flaky and dry skin after you start using this product!
This cream is $38, and compared to other major skincare brands this price is definitely reasonable.
Before you scroll away after reading “snail,” hear me out. Snail mucin is amazing for skin regeneration, moisturizing, and a collagen booster.
The snail repair cream is essential if you’re looking to make your skin firmer and to reduce the look of scarring. Snail cream works on all skin types but works especially well on acne-prone and sensitive skin.
The cream has a gel-like texture that leaves your skin feeling soft and not greasy. If you’re into the dewy-finish look then this cream is perfect for you.
It makes a great base before applying your makeup and will your face looking brighter. You’ll also notice snail mucin is not cheap—this product can be purchased at $50.
This is a Soko Glam exclusive brand that has been featured on Allure, the Zoe Report, and Who What Wear. It’s made with probiotics to nourish and leave your skin feeling non-greasy.
The probiotics are sourced from rice ferment filtrate (sake), bifida ferment lysate, and lactobacillus ferment lysate. This basically means your skin’s microbiome will become balanced from using this product over time—you’ll get fewer future breakouts. Yes, please.
Not only are you getting the benefits from probiotics, but you’re also getting the benefit of ceramides. This moisturizer is perfect for all skin types and makes a great layering moisturizer since it’s so lightweight.
You’ll get plenty of hydration and it blends so easily into the skin making it very gentle. You can purchase from Soko Glam for $24.
The Belif True Cream Moisturizing Bomb is another fan-favorite product. I remember seeing this all over Insta during the Sephora sales.
It’s definitely worth the hype! This cream is amazing for oily skin, dry skin, and everything you name it. You’ll get bursts of hydration leaving your skin silky smooth.
This product is really great if you’re trying to target dull and uneven skin. After a few weeks of using this cream, your skin will look so youthful.
It’s also made with clean ingredients which is a huge plus knowing you’re not putting gunk all over your face. You can purchase anywhere like Sephora or Ulta for $38.
CORSX is another super popular Korean skincare brand—I love their pimple patches! This Oil-Free moisturizing lotion is made for all skin types but is most ideal for acne-prone or dry skin.
The Birch Sap is amazing for calming irritated or exfoliated skin—it will instantly moisturize and cool any discomfort. You’ll always have smooth and hydrated skin.
Definitely keep tabs on this moisturizer because it’s almost always out of stock—it’s that good. You can purchase starting at $22 so a real bang for your buck.
To wrap up, I had to include another Soko Glam exclusive brand—Then I Met You. The Calming Tide Gel Cream is one of their most popular skincare products.
It’s a very lightweight gel-cream moisturizer that refreshes and calms the skin. It’s made with a Tri-Tide Peptide Complex that helps your skin function at its most optimal level.
You’ll notice a more even skin texture, firmer skin, and an overall healthier look. There’s also hibiscus extract so your skin gets protection from natural pollutants.
