10 Korean Beauty Products to Try Today

Korean beauty products are very hot right now all over the world. Based on science and produced economically, these products are becoming known because they are effective. Here are 10 of the Korean products you should try today. You’ll be glad you did.


  1. Clean It is an oil cleanser that has no fragrance and comes in a solid so that it dissolves into your pores to better clean and remove makeup and other remains of the day. Best of all, Clean It is hypoallergenic.
  2. The Hyaluronic Acid product comes in the form of little face towels soaked in this acid, and after a good “soak”, you won’t have dead or dull skin any longer.
  3. Snail Wrinkle Care Sleeping Pack: This is a sleep pack that comes in a gel. You simply apply it to your face, and after you’ve cleansed your face it will absorb into your skin. The gel is lightweight so you probably won’t even notice it has been applied until you wake up to refreshed skin.KoreanBeautySerum
  4. Su:m37 is a luxury skincare brand that offers fragrance and preservative-free products. Made from bamboo sap and other fermented ingredients, Su:um37 has found a way to naturally release enzymes that can repair and protect facial skin.
  5. Although it has a European sounding name, Laneige is a Korean blemish balm that comes in a compact. Once applied, this product can hydrates your skin and protect it from the sun. It duals as a light foundation that can also brighten your skin.
  6. Black Sugar Mask Wash Off is a nearly black product that can appear intimidating, but it’s easy to use. Following facial application, it should melt and it can be rinsed for brighter and softer skin.
  7. Egg Pore, a blackhead remover and pore cleanser, destroys bacteria that causes blackheads in the first place.  Egg Pore comes in a neat egg-shaped package, but don’t let the Humpty Dumpty look fool you –  this is no wimpy blackhead attacker – before long, you can be blackhead free.
  8. Looking for something that sounds exotic? Try Timeless Ferment Snail Lip Treatment. The trail a snail leaves behind has been used as part of the Korean beauty regimen for many years. This is your chance to leverage this well-kept beauty secret.
  9. Calming Seed is a 96% natural cream that cleans your face with tiny granules that can also scrub off the stress of the day as they remove dead cells and give your skin a fresh glow.
  10. The Revolution is a cream that is made, at least in part, from a yeast extract. The Revolution can be used in many different ways, but the end result is intended to be cell-regeneration along with brighter and overall healthier skin.

MSC-Woodbury Supports Tubman Crisis Center

Since October was National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Minnesota School of Cosmetology students and staff decided to raise money for a local organization called Tubman. This amazing organization helps women, men, youth and families who have experienced relationship violence, elder abuse, addiction, sexual exploitation or other forms of trauma.

IMG_3253We proudly wore purple to let it be known that we won’t stand for domestic violence. By charging money to wear jeans, we were able to donate all proceeds to Tubman Family Crisis and Support Services. “Thanks so much for your ongoing support to our families,” said Joanne Rice, Shelter Manager at Tubman.

We also offered free salon services for the clients of Tubman. MSC-Woodbury graduate Shela Vang said “My experience with the Tubman ladies was great! I enjoyed it not just because we’re giving out free services, but I was able to touch someone’s heart. Being able to make people feel and look good is all I care about! As long as I know they’re happy with my service then I’m happy too.”

MSC-Woodbury student Krystal Shake was happy to give complimentary manicures because she could tell the women were really appreciative. In the past, Krystal volunteered at Tubman taking care of kids which she said was really fun.
