“Beauty is only skin deep” takes on a new meaning when it comes to AmorePacific’s antioxidant-packed, botanical-infused, green tea-patented goodness. The skincare savant is widely known for bypassing water as a product base, instead infusing its moisture-rich elixirs with bamboo sap, red ginseng, and green tea leaves that are grown and harvested at the company’s JeJu Island complex off the Korean coast. These powerful, concentrated Asian ingredients are proven to hydrate the skin more than water, saturate its deepest layers, and infuse the skin with the powerful ECGC antioxidant to create a firm barrier against the elements.
The Moisture Bound Tinted Treatment Moisturizer with SPF 15 is paraben- and sulfate-free and the brand’s answer to the BB cream craze, giving your skin a sheer, smoothed-out complexion while providing SPF protection. One of our favorites, the Skin Energy Mist (especially this cute version featuring art from Brooklyn-based artist Wook Kim), is the perfect pick-me-up after a day about town, city, sand, and surf. The uber-refreshing mist contains bamboo sap, red ginseng, and matsutake mushroom extracts to give your skin a vibrant blast in a pump or two. What we’re really clamoring to get our hands on is the latest addition to the Moisture Bound family, the Vitalizing Body Lotion. Available in June, the water-free elixir is light to the touch but bursting with moisture in a 24 hour time-release formula that’ll keep your skin soft from day to night. Not to mention, all three products smell divine. How’s that for deep, down beauty?
