We all assume that diving into Korean skincare is excessive. We think it requires two bottles of serums, three types of cleansers, a ~cool~ toner, beauty water, and maybe two tubs of face creams. But one beauty brand aims to make K-beauty simple for every Pinay: Althea Korea released their namesake skincare line, Bare Essentials. It focuses on the fundamental concepts of Korean skincare: Cleanse, prep, and hydrate.
All three products are packed with skin nourishing ingredients that switch on your glow—a popular Korean skincare payoff. The best part? Nothing costs over P650! Find out more below:
