In today’s article, I’m sharing the best Korean serums for dry skin that are made with natural ingredients. These K beauty serums for glass skin are my favorite because they actually work and use clean formulas, which means less junk and fillers that do nothing and more active botanicals that benefit your skin.
My top pick for a K beauty serum that hydrates skin is Aromatica’s rose serum. It has a beautiful, natural formula of precious Damask Rose Extract, Damask Rose Oil along with aloe vera, betaine, elderberry, raspberry, Indian gooseberry and rosehip.
I love the Whamisa Fresh Cactus Bouncy Serum because it’s made with over 99% Cactus pear extract which has a restructuring effect on skin and locks in moisture. It also has protein-rich algae extracts and the tiniest bit of lavender and rosemary to finish off the formula. This has the secretion-like consistency of snail mucin and feels rich and thick.
Iunik is one of my top picks for an all natural hydrating serum, because it has 70% Black Snail Secretion Filtrate and 5 black superfoods like black rice, black sesame, eggplant and black beans to improve skin health. This is perfect if you want something very light and thin.
The Haruharu Wonder Black Rice Serum is 95% natural and EWG-verified with 100% Korean fermented black rice and bamboo shoots. It’s super hydrating with a lovely floral scent.
I’d recommend the Beauty of Joseon serum for dry skin in need of intense hydration. The Beauty of Joseon serum is on the thicker consistency side for me but is extremely hydrating and gives your skin an immediate dewy glow. It begins with a generous base of 63% ginseng water to quickly provide moisture deep into the skin along with 3% Snail mucin for protecting damaged skin and improving skin elasticity. You’ll also find other hydration-focused and skin-improving actives included like Niacinamide, both Sodium Hyaluronate and hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Mushroom Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract and more.
Cos de Baha is one of my favorite clean dupes for the SK-II Toner Essence for just under $10. The yeast extract hydrates skin cells along with Sodium Hyaluronate and Niacinamide. Dull, rough skin will love this because galactomyces ferment filtrate also helps even out skin tone.
