The grande dame of South Korean skincare, MISSHA's high quality, affordable products have been around since the early 2000s. Their essences, derived from fermented ingredients, are top-notch, penetrate deeply into the skin but cost less than competitors like SKII. MISSHA's Time Revolution series has a strong following, and many feel it outshines SKII's essence. I prefer the MISSHA product as I find it more hydrating. I could not believe how good my skin looked after just one application. You do not - I repeat, do not need to spend $200 for an essence. MISSHA's is in the $40-60 price range. Reviewers find MISSHA's Time Revolution Night as as good or better than Estée Lauder's Night Effects Serum, but it is much less expensive. Their milky sunscreens and luxurious BB creams are game-changers, too. Skin transformation at reasonable prices! Sign me up.

Urang is a beautiful wellness brand from South Korea. Its founder, Jina Lee and her husband suffered from atopic skin conditions and wanted to use products with natural ingredients that would not aggravate their skin. But the all natural products on the market were very expensive, as in thousands of dollars per month, therefore not accessible to most. So she jumped in and created her own brand! She has also paid close attention to the image of her brand - they are packaged and presented in a way that makes one feel calm and zen, just for having them on your vanity! But that zen image is not false - these products are as effective as they are beautiful to look at. Once you try them you will never go back!
