These 10 K-Beauty products will have you bringing out your beauty and serving looks like a real K-pop star. Let's not waste any more time and jump right into this guide to enhance your skincare routine.

What is a K Glow Up?

According to the Urban Dictionary, a "glow up" represents a physical transformation for the better. It can happen naturally or intentionally and can affect one's self-image temporarily or permanently. In most cases, glow ups happen with the help of beauty products to accentuate natural beauty. For example, we use skincare products to nurture and safeguard the health of our skin and makeup products to highlight the best features of our face. A "K Glow up" represents that same idea but with uniquely formulated Korean beauty products and accessories.

Why Korean Cosmetics?

Korean cosmetics are reigning supreme in the world of beauty. Not because of the cute packaging, but because of value and results. Many Korean cosmetics serve as dupes for more high-end brands. Plus, the people have spoken, especially on sites like Allure, which provide the seal of approval for many Korean brands. And with these rankings along with thousands of positive reviews online, the demand only continues to grow. We recently unboxed some promising items available through Kmall24 sellers as well as other online retailers to see what all the hype was about.
