Kate’s Corner

Thanks to an obsessive interest in the beauty industry and several very kind exchange students, I’ve been on the K-Beauty trend since college. These days, I’ve simplified my routine although one look in my bathroom will reveal a veritable horde of K- beauty brands. This month, I thought I would share some of my favorites from my stash with you.


Elizavecca – Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup Mask

The Milky Piggy line is one of my favorite, not only is the packaging goofy and adorable, but this peel-off mask has saved my skin from breaking out on more than one occasion. As a peel-off mask this it highly satisfying and very effective.


Nature Republic – Real Nature Mask Sheet in Rose

Rose is one of my favorite beauty ingredients for the hydration and the scent. All of the masks by Nature Republic are wonderful, but this rose number is the one I’ve always keep on hand to help me unwind after a long day.


Cosrx – Clinical Skin Care Acne Pimple Master Patch

Since I started using K-Beauty, my skin has cleared up exponentially, but I still get the occasional blemish. Acne patches are pretty common, but these are some of the best, they keep bacteria out and have a small amount of treatment solution to help heal any blemishes quickly and safely.


Tony Moly – Golden Mushroom Sleeping Mask

This is my all-time favorite night cream and is one of the few things that could keep my dry skin nourished in the frigid New York winter. I love that it feels thick and nourishing without being the slightest bit greasy.
