Top 7 Affordable Korean Skincare Products

Beautiful skin can sometimes be such a hassle to achieve. It can be time consuming; with having to find the right products to do the job, keeping up a routine, and waiting a few weeks or so for the results to start showing. But one of the biggest hurdles people face when starting their skincare journey is that products can be so expensive.

But fret not, because beauty and perfect skin doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. Here's our top seven Korean skincare products that won't leave you feeling guilty about spending so much!

1. Heimish All Clean Balm ($24)

A little goes a long way with this oil-based cleansing balm, which is why it's so cost effective. Since you only use a small amount, it lasts a super long time, saving you from spending money on it every month or so! 

2. COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser ($17)

This mild cleanser is perfect oily, combination, and dry skin types. It contains tea tree oil to help combat acne, but isn't drying so it's great for winter! Also, by using a pea sized amount twice a day, you really get bang for your buck!

3. Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener ($17.99)

This toner is a cult favourite amongst Korean Skincare fans. Not only does it come in a sizeable bottle, but the product itself is actually 10-in-1! It saves you from buying a multitude of different products for different purposes, and you really only need to use a small amount of it to get great results. All of this and it's still under $18!

4. Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel ($10)

This aloe vera based gel is a treat for dry, cracked, or irritated skin, and doesn't break the bank! It cools and soothes, as well as hydrates and nourishes. It comes in a sizeable container, and can be used all over the body, not just the face! It's great for summer time, for when you spend a little too much time in the sun, but it's also perfect for dry and cracked winter skin.

5. Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask ($17)

This fun carbonated mask bubbles upon application, making it great to use with friends! The charcoal, tea tree, and clay mask absorbs excess sebum and other impurities, to leave your skin renewed and smooth! Due to it being carbonated, you should only apply a thing layer of this mask, meaning the container will last you a life time!

6. COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch ($5.99)

These patches are raved about amongst the K-beauty community. They suck all of the gunk and nasties out of your pimple overnight, and reduce the inflammation drastically. And for just $5.99, that's less than 25 cents per patch!

7. COSRX Centella Blemish Cream ($24)

For acne sufferers, this cream is a miracle worker. Applying a small amount all over your face as the last step of your skincare routine will help reduce acne and acne-caused irritation and inflammation. It can also be used as a spot treatment for those tougher areas, which will in turn help you save this product for longer! It's mild enough to be used on sensitive skin, as well, which is a massive bonus.
