28 Amazon K-Beauty Finds for Prime Day 2022 You Can Shop Now

For years, we’ve sought out Korean beauty treatments and practices in a quest to discover the secret to more clear, supple skin. Thankfully, there is a crop of Amazon Korean beauty finds available to shop as the tried-and-true beauty products that have emerged stateside.

Think intensive hydration and glass skin powered by innovative formulations featuring ingredients from snail mucin to royal jelly and centella asiatica (an Asian-grown herb known for its anti-inflammatory benefits). And through social media sharing or stars like Irene Kim and Jeon Somi revealing their Korean beauty favorites, we’re eagerly leaning into the beauty rituals that Koreans hold close.

There are cult-favorite formulas like Laneige’s nourishing lip mask, or the Cosrx snail mucin-infused essence, which went viral on TikTok. Or perhaps, a more hidden gem like Zeroid’s skin-balancing toner. Either way, you’re sure to discover a product to suit a variety of skin conditions and concerns. Below, here are the best Amazon Korean beauty finds to shop this Amazon Prime Day 2022.

Glow Recipe

From Glow Recipe, expect not only thoughtful skin-care packed with fruit-based, clean formulas, but also what the brand describes as “sensorial self-care moments.” Founded by Christine Chang and Sarah Lee took inspiration from their Korean heritage to create its lineup in 2017. Now, you’ll see some of its most notable products, like the Watermelon Glow Dew Drops, trending on TikTok as a skin-care makeup hybrid that reveals glossy, glowing skin. Or, we might reach for its Eye Sleeping Mask formulated with avocado, encapsulated retinol, coffeeberry, and niacinamide to de-puff, moisturize, and brighten the under-eye.

Launched in 2002, Zeroid is a Korean beauty brand that looks to treat skin conditions through science-backed solutions.

While the toner works to balance oily and troubled skin types through a blend of salicylic acid and zinc pyrrolidone carboxylic acid, the brand’s lineup also includes restorative treatments like the Richenic Cream, which use natural moisturizing factors, urea, and hyaluronic acid, to help strengthen the skin barrier.
