Korean skincare is still the most searched term in beauty online. And if you are wondering why that is the case, it’s because Korean skincare is all about using unique and effective processes (say hello to 7-step toning), and products that address micro issues like pore minimisers and essences. But mostly of all it’s about harnessing the power of interesting ingredients (hello, snail mucin) to give your skin the maximum benefits. With that in mind, say hello to the season’s biggest Korean skincare label that has debited in India with Sephora – Caolion.
The brand’s ultra original Pore Mask has already attained cult status in the beauty-sphere, with YouTube stars and beauty experts showing off its multiple benefits and the innovative technology.
Caolion’s products are highly innovative formulations that are all about effective skincare. Free of chemical and artificial fragrances, the products claim to remove toxins and impurities from the skin. What makes this more effective is the use of unique ingredients like glacier clay and mineral-rich volcanic ash. It is particularly beneficial to those with sensitive skin.
Their mainstay is products that address pore issues, and the range includes pore packs for blackheads, pore tightening creams, cleansing balms and rejuvenating masks. The Bubble Pore Pack and the Hot and Cool Pore Pack Duo are bestsellers.
‘Minus Beauty’ is the philosophy of the brand, evident in the fact that they don’t use any chemical and artificial fragrances. It’s about being natural and steering clear of anything that can harm sensitive skin. Caolion founder Jinyoung Joo wanted to leverage 5,000 years of Korean beauty history and knowledge to create her brand and it was the very first in Korea to come out with no colouring, fragrances, or alcohol.
Here is our pick of the top three products from Caolion:
Caolion Premium Pore Original Pack (Rs 2,200)
The product strengthens the skin’s elasticity and helps in pore purifying. It comes with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, Alaskan glacial water, and volcanic ash to firm the skin and to exfoliate. Use it right after you cleanse and tone the face to get its skin-smoothening benefits.
Caolion Pore Blackhead O2 Sparkling Soap (Rs 1,800)
This very Instagram-able soap is known to remove impurities and blackheads along with dead skin cells. It controls sebum and features ingredients like charcoal powder and cocoa. A smooth, plump, moisturised feeling after cleansing is what you’ll get by using it.
Caolion Premium Hot and Cool Pore Pack Duo (Rs 3,200)
Detoxifying and calming at the same time, this duo pack features a steaming mask that really goes into the pores, deeply cleanses them, and removes all grime. The Cooling Mask on the other hand helps moisturise, tighten, and minimise the appearance of pores.
