6 best Korean skin care products for oily skin

Korean skincare is blowing up right now and we’re all here for it.

Korean women take their skin care very seriously with lengthy multi-step routines that leave the rest of us envious of their clear, dewy “cloudless skin.” But they don’t just have a complicated regime to thank for their flawless skin — Korean skincare products are also some of the best on the market, especially for oily, acne-prone skin. Their products are typically more innovative than those you find in other parts of the world. They contain ingredients that are more natural and gentler on the skin and the consistencies are often thicker, milkier, and much more hydrating.

And while thick, milky products don’t sound ideal for those looking for a little more oil control — trust us. They work.

Here are 6 Korean skin care products to help control oil and clear up acne!

Heimish All Clean Balm

Balms are one of the best skincare products you can invest in as they don’t strip away the skin’s natural oils the same way most cleansers and fragranced moisturisers do. The Heimish All Clean Balm is a multi-purpose product that removes makeup, sunscreen, and oil while providing deep hydration. It’s formulated with shea butter, citrus herb oil, coconut fruit extract, and white flower complex and is free of parabens, fragrances, and artificial colorants.

COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser

Salicylic acid is one of the best products for those with oily, acne-prone skin. This cleanser is very gentle and is ideal for those with sensitive, acne-prone skin. It’s formulated with salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and other purifying botanicals to remove oil, dead skin cells, blackheads, whiteheads, and prevent breakouts. The gentle formula soothes skin leaving it soft and clean.

Dr. G Crystal Deep Peeling

This unique exfoliant is a mixture of cream and micro crystal salt granules to slough off dead skin cells while leaving skin plump, hydrated, and glowing. It contains lemon extract, aloe, centella and other botanical extracts to balance skin tone. It’s also formulated with one of our favourite skincare ingredients, caffeine, to wake tired looking skin, reduce redness, improve circulation, and provide amazing antioxidant benefits.

KLAIRS Supple Preparation Facial Toner

The KLAIRS Supple Preparation Facial Toner is a vegan toner designed to prep your skin to better absorb your skincare by removing excess sebum and restoring the pH balance. It’s formulated with amino acids to reduce irritation and redness post-cleansing while leaving skin soft and hydrated. It has a pH level of 5.

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Ultimate Hydro Gel Moisturiser

With an ultra-lightweight formula, this hydro gel moisturiser provides intense hydration without leaving skin feeling greasy or sticky. It’s formulated with aqua minerals to boost and maintain the skin’s water level and has antibacterial properties to fight build up of sebum and debris throughout the day. It leaves skin feeling firm, dewy, and fresh.

Troiareuke Acsen Pore Control Mask

This mask is specifically designed for acne-prone skin. It gently removes impurities and deep cleans pores without leaving skin tight, dry, or irritated. It contains Moroccan lava, kaolin, and bentonite clay to purify skin and centella asiatica extract to reduce redness, inflammation, and scarring. Regular use will provide brighter, firmer, more even-toned skin.
