If you’re anything like me, you might have gotten to know the most well known Korean skin care brands like Etude House and Innisfree, and while that has peaked your interest in Asian cosmetics, you’ve been left wondering if there was a complete list of Korean skin care brands for easier brand discovery and browsing.
Well, I had that exact thought, which is why I have spent quite a large amount of time browsing the internet and trying to gather as much information as I could about the lesser known Korean skin care brands.
While I acknowledge that this list is far from complete, I wanted to share it with those of you who are looking to test out new Korean brands that haven’t yet become cult hits here in the West. I will keep updating this list of Korean skin care brands as I discover more and more labels, so if you are interested in following how big the list eventually becomes, I would recommend you to bookmark this page for later use!
Where possible, I have linked to the brands’ pages on Amazon – this way you can easily browse the different products that the brand has available in the US as well as see what products are the most highly rated, read customer reviews in English and get acquainted with the brand more.
Some of these brands were not available on Amazon, however they were available on Yes Style. In those cases, I’ve linked directly to the brands pages on Yes Style. The products that I’ve linked to are generally cheaper on Amazon, however if you’re interested in buying anything, I urge you to check out product prices on both Amazon and Yes Style – you never know which one is cheaper when it comes to a certain product until you compare!
As you can notice, there’s brands are ordered alphabetically to make it easier to navigate this post. I have also added an extra mention for those brands that are particularly popular in Korea – these can be identified with the remark ‘Top rated on Glowpick’ next to them.
Glowpick is a Korean website where Korean consumers share their product experiences with other people of the internet. All the products mentioned there are rated on a five star scale, and I’ve simply given the top rated brands on the website an extra mention on this list. If you’re interested in looking into Glowpick yourself, you can find it here. (Pst! Turn on Google translation if you can’t read Korean!)
So, without further ado, let’s get in to the comprehensive list of Korean skin care brands.

What Korean Skin Care Brands Should I Start With?
If you’re new into Korean skin care, start from the brands that are marked with Top Rated By Glowpick, or alternatively Amazon’s best sellers. This way, you’ll be more likely to see amazing results faster, and avoid buying gimmicky products.
Some popular brands that have garnered attention even in the West include Innisfree, Missha, The Face Shop, Tony Moly, The Saem, Su:m37, Sulwahsoo and Mizon to name a few. My recommendation would be to start with a double cleansing product, a snail cream and some sheet masks. Most of these brands will all have their own versions of these products, so it’s rather easy to find a good match for your particular skin type.
