The Best Korean Serums For Every Skin Concern

These can treat blackheads, dry skin, and dark marks!

Korean serums have long been in the shadow of essences, which, tbh, is just plain sad because they have a lot of amazing serums that are more wallet-friendly than their Western counterparts. If you have a specific skin concern or issue you want to address for your skin type, check out the different options below!

Issue: Oily skin

PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum

While skincare products with snail mucus are for hydrating the complexion, they're ideal for using on oily skin. The lightweight texture makes it easily absorbed by the skin, it strengthens your skin's moisture barrier—leading to a more balanced complexion that won't produce excess sebum, and it repairs the skin by brightening and evening it out.
