7 Favorite AmorePacific Beauty Products


THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY AMOREPACIFIC BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

Korean beauty’s innovative technology is upgrading our everyday regime, and being Korean, I also was blessed with a Korean mother teaching me the secret ways behind flawless Korean skin. From ‘slapping’ on toner to eight to 12 steps skincare steps repeated twice daily, the rituals may be time-consuming and a bit different, but the results are well worth the extra few minutes at the sink, along with spending a little extra buck to get what you’re looking for, in terms of your skin. Which is why I’ve rounded up 7 of my favorite products from fan-favorite brand AmorePacific to help you get started. Continue reading to learn more along with direct links to shop each product!

TREATMENT CLEANSING FOAM

Perfect for normal to oily skin, this foaming cream cleanser removes impurities and makeup without stripping the skin of vital moisture while helping to treat and prevent breakouts. Olive oil, sunflower seed oil, and mango seed butter cleanse the skin thoroughly without drying it out, while natural sugars hydrate and soften. As the cleanser is massaged onto the skin, micro-encapsulated vitamin E beads deliver a burst of antioxidant protection, leaving the complexion clean and refreshed. Sensitive to all skin types, it acts as a purifying antioxidant complex that also treats acne.

TREATMENT CLEANSING OIL FACE & EYES

This gentle cleanser for the face and eyes is a blend of botanical oils—including green tea seed, babassu palm, and coconut oil—that dissolves and lifts away impurities and makeup (even waterproof mascara) without stripping away skin’s natural moisture. Upon contact with water, the multitasking formula transforms into a silky, non-oily emulsion that also works to improve skin luminosity and moisture retention for a smooth, glowing complexion. It is further enriched with hydrating green tea leaf extract and a radiance-boosting blend of ginseng root and white birch extract. 

TREATMENT ENZYME PEEL CLEANSING POWDER

Reformulated for daily use, this deep-cleansing exfoliator uses papaya- and green tea-derived enzymes to remove dulling residue without irritating healthy skin for a brighter glow. The water-activated, powder-to-foam formula leaves skin moisturized and primed to best receive ingredients to follow.

YOUTH REVOLUTION VITAMIN C RADIANCE CONCENTRATOR

This serum helps rid skin of Aging Dust™, preventing these damaging factors from accumulating on the surface causing dullness, uneven tone, and pigmentation. Its dual-chamber release combines two skin-brightening, antioxidant-rich formulas to address early signs of aging and boost radiance. Vitamin C works to even skin tone, while white peony helps with overall tone improvement and skin's firmness. Soothing green tea polysaccharides further work to brighten the complexion.

THE ESSENTIAL CREME FLUID

The Essential Crème Fluid offers the ultimate in green tea antioxidants for your skin. Each bottle contains 150 baby green tea leaves handpicked from the brand's green tea gardens. T-Essentials, a vital nutrient from green tea polysaccharides and green tea carotenoid, enhance and recover skin's moisture, texture, and flexibility. Neutra-Melting Emulsion Technology, the brand's exclusive technology, neutralizes oils from botanicals for all the nutrient-rich benefits in a silky texture. Micro Moisture Capsule Factor unlocks moisture deep within skin's layers and teaches skin to retain moisture more effectively.  

TIME RESPONSE SKIN RESERVE CREME

This rich, anti-aging cream melts onto skin forming a lightweight protective layer to help improve the look of skin elasticity, hydration, and skin tone. This advanced formula contains AMOREPACIFIC’s highest-grade and most concentrated green tea to help visibly plump and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. I use this during the winter time in replace of the creme fluid, which I use during the warmer seasons.

YOUTH REVOLUTION RADIANCE CREME & MASQUE

This transformative formula suspends the aging cycle with 24-7 brightening benefits. Its versatile, sherbet-like texture absorbs effortlessly onto skin, allowing you to customize your results: one layer for morning moisture and two layers for nighttime nourishment. This multi-tasker calls upon white peony to help improve skin’s overall tone and firmness and green tea polysaccharides to brighten complexion. Truly a great creme, I love using this one as an overnight mask.

LOVE & XX’S,

Effectively remove makeup and impurities without stripping your skin of essential moisture with AMOREPACIFIC US, INC.'s Cleansing Foam. Formulated with super hydrating Bamboo Sap and firming Red Ginseng Root, this anti-bacterial face wash contains exfoliating Vitamin E micro-beads that dissolve to release antioxidants. I like to use this skincare set along with the Elemis, and rotate them in the week. I feel when you use the exact same products all the time to the skin starts to not have the same effects versus to switching it up here and there. How do you guys feel about this?

AMORE PACIFIC TREATMENT ENZYME PEEL

Forget what you think you know about exfoliating peels - AMOREPACIFIC US, INC.'s gentle, botanical-infused formula is light enough for daily use. When combined with water, the fine powder transforms into a light emulsion that washes away dull, dead skin cells.

Perfect as an aftershave for men too! This mini is ideal for travel.

DIPTYQUE POMANDER CANDLE

If you don’t know by now, my all-time favorite candles are from Diptyque. And this newly discovered scent is all the rage. Pomander is a delicious orange studded with cloves and cinnamon, the spicy scent of winter. It’s the most incredible fragranced candle, and you Diptyque’s candles burn for quite a long time on top of its quality scents. What’s your favorite scent by Diptyque?

JIMMY CHOO FEVER EAU DE PARFUM

Jimmy Choo Fever Eau de Parfum is an addictive and sensual fragrance. Effortlessly glamorous, the Fever woman has a mysterious side, yet always has the ability to shine.

The micro brush tip glides on smoothly to create precise definition or drama where you want it & moves with the contours of your lashline for the perfect, one-swipe application. You can use it to sculpt & fill in spaces between lashes for an ultra-black boost in volume or extend it out to a sexy #maneater wing.

DR. DENNIS GROSS CLINICAL GRADE IPL DARK SPOT CORRECTING SERUM

A viable alternative to hydroquinone, this pro-level treatment fights discoloration by removing over-pigmented surface cells, brightening skin tone, and fighting against environmental aggressors. Skin brightness improves in as early as two weeks, while diminishing visible discoloration in eight weeks. Containing lactic acid helps fight acne and I can confirm dark spots are gone even after a month! I started to notice results right away. It will be available online and in stores January 4th. It’s $90 for one 1.0 fl oz bottle, but it’s literally magic potion in a jar so you will definitely be getting your money’s worth.

Time for my monthly beauty roundup of favorites! And I discovered a ton of new beauty products/brands that I've never tried before, thanks to the busy month of December. In today's post, I've got a special 30% discount code for one of my new favorite lipstick lines, an amazing recovery mask that provides instant results in 3 minutes (completely obsessed), the only nail polish remover I have been using since I was a kid, an acne-fighting serum, and a firming hydrogel eye mask that's not even out in stores yet. Continue reading to learn more about my December beauty favorites and also where you can shop the products.   

1. URBAN DECAY ALL NIGHTER LONG-LASTING MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY

Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. The All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray by Urban Decay keeps makeup looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 16 hours - without melting, fading or settling into fine lines. Smoother-looking skin and vibrant makeup that lasts all day (or all night). I particularly use this spray with a more heavy-duty look such as vampy lips, smoky eyes and/or full coverage foundation.

2. GRANDE COSMETICS GRANDE PRIMER

A white pre-mascara primer that helps thicken and lengthen lashes. Grande Primer is a white pre-mascara lengthener and thickener that's infused with a lash-loving combination of no-flake microfibers, nutrients, and peptides that works to condition while you coat instantly increasing lash volume while improving lash appearance over time. It preps the lashes for mascara application and boosts its effects by instantly adding dramatic length, volume, and it curls while maintaining naturally soft, supple lashes. The unique molded brush is designed specifically for lash priming to ensure proper separation of the lashes, resulting in a flawless application.

3. FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION® FIRMING HYDROGEL EYE MASK

This next-generation serum-infused hydrogel eye mask instantly helps firm, hydrate, and diminish dark circles. The refreshing marine-scented hydrogel patches adhere to undereye contours to infuse skin with nutrient-rich Blue Marine Algae and youth-boosting Peptides. This fatigue-fighting, luxurious formula illuminates, de-puffs, and reawakens the bounce of delicate undereye skin. Perfect for all skin types!

4. YSL BEAUTY BLACK OPIUM BODY LOTION

My most recent favorite body lotion obsession. Awaken your skin with a jolt of Black Opium's signature notes of coffee and vanilla bean. The luxurious texture of the lotion instantly moisturizes the skin, leaving a subtle veil of sparkles that make the skin shimmer. Highly addictive. Seductively intoxicating.

5. DR BRANDT OXYGEN FACIAL

One of my most recent favorite recovery masks as of late, this luminizing mask helps lessen the look of fatigued skin. It works to provide tired, dull, lackluster skin with a revitalized, illuminated, and re-energized appearance. It also helps smooth the signs of fine lines. The potent formula was inspired by the most popular facial in Dr. Brandt’s practice and takes just three minutes for full effect.

6. RIMMEL LONDON MAGNIF'EYES SMOKE EDITION PALETTE 003

Find Cosmetics at Target.com! Contour your eyes with just one kit! This palette contains 12 different shades to customize your look from bare nude to ultra sultry. Contour your eyes with just one palette, love using it to get that perfect smoky eye! They also have a nude and blush palette which are also great for everyday, natural makeup.

7. ERBORIAN DOUBLE MOUSSE GENTLE CLEANSING FOAM

Part Korean, part French skincare, I've completely fallen madly in love with this brand. My favorite cleanser at the moment is their double mousse gentle cleansing foam. This foaming mousse cleanser is a two-in-one formula, helping to eliminate impurities and visibly refine the skin's texture for a flawlessly smooth and radiant look. Enriched with seven Korean herbs which help to soothe the skin, this rich formula is gentle enough for daily use. Travel-size friendly too.

8. LA ROCHE POSAY EFFACLAR SERUM

The Effaclar Serum, a pore minimizer, provides a powerful combination of highly concentrated ingredients to exfoliate skin and visibly smooth skin texture. LHA provides micro-exfoliation to help tighten enlarged large pores while refining skin's texture. AHA-Glycolic Complex helps smooth texture, even tone and boost skin radiance.

9. COLORESCIENCE® SUNFORGETTABLE LOOSE MINERAL POWDER BRUSH SPF 30 IN MEDIUM

Stay radiant every day without damaging your skin. Colorescience® Brush-On Sunscreen offers powerful SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection, alone or over makeup. Sheer, natural-looking coverage and SPF in one simple, on-the-go application.

10. REVISION® SKINCARE FIRMING NIGHT TREATMENT

This peptide-rich, age-defying cream provides intense short-- and long-term moisturization while you sleep. Contains two peptides that are clinically proven to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Includes Sodium Hyaluronate, which binds moisture to the skin. The cream also alleviates dryness with Shea Butter and a blend of botanical extracts. It completely rehydrates, replenishes and brightens dull, dry skin. Amazing night cream!

11. CUTEX STRENGTH SHIELD NAIL POLISH REMOVER

Promotes stronger nails. With hydrolyzed silk protein and vitamins E and B5, this nail polish remover is also infused with a lavender fragrance. Ingredients are known to strengthen, nourish and condition the health of your nails. This is the only nail polish remover I stand by since I've been painting my nails. Fun random fact: I DON'T do mani's or pedi's. EVER. People touching my hands or feet give me the tickles, but not in a good way... more like twitching rather than tickles. HA HA HA.

12. MADAM GLAM "LIAR" MATTE LIPSTICK

Cruelty-free and vegan, this long-wearing lipstick has a velvety, smooth finish with gorgeous texture. They have an assortment of colors, from matte to glossy finishes too. I particularly love this pink-hued one, called, "Liar". It's the perfect subtle pop of color for an everyday lipstick. Here is a special 30% off coupon code for you guys to use if you're curious about those lipsticks shades too. The coupon has no special conditions (no minimum order or anything else): Suzanne30. It can also be used in our Gels and Nail Art category. Go here and shop now!
