Korean beauty products have become coveted beauty staples in the Western skin care market — and not just for women. There’s a swath of Korean grooming products for dudes that deliver the same skin-enhancing performance, wacky ingredients, and fun packaging that’s made K-beauty so successful in the States.
But Korean grooming products for men don’t just include upgraded essentials like hair styling wax or your average shaving cream. They also feature a number of new grooming inventions that you never knew you needed. Check out some of the best K-grooming products for men below.
1. Cosrx Clarifying Treatment Toner
Guys (including us) often buy the first exfoliator we see in the drug store, even though a great exfoliator can work wonders for your skin, so it may be worth investing in a good one. Instead of grabbing the first one you see, try this one from Cosrx. It uses a mild AHA/BHA formulation that gently peels away dead skin, while simultaneously applying nutrients for skin health.
2. TONYMOLY Foot Super Peeling Liquid
Keep your feet in great condition all year long with this peeling liquid from TONYMOLY. The gel will gently (but firmly) remove any dead skin and help exfoliate your feet, so the best version of yourself shines through. Using the likes of argan oil, lavender extract and peppermint extract, this is a product you can count on to keep you looking and feeling good.
3. SSANAI Hair Stunner Wax
This hair wax provides a super strong hold, a modern matte finish, and leaves behind a subtle, masculine scent of wood and pepper. It’s also easy to wash out at the end of the day (unlike many hair waxes and pomades).
4. SSANAI Hair Slammer Pomade
This SSANAI pomade gives hair a shiny look and a strong hold that’s easy to wash out. But along with keeping your hair perfectly quaffed, it also defines the texture. For more of a retro-classic look, we highly recommend going for this pomade (as opposed to the other wax option on our list).
5. Sulwhasoo Energizing Cream for Men
One of the best K-grooming products for men is this Sulwhasoo cream. It’s highly concentrated medicinal herb formula works wonders on even the most damaged skin, absorbing quickly and revitalizing skin cells. It’s a huge help if you’re looking to fight dark circles under eyes.
