Korean skincare products have finally made it mainstream! I was thrilled to see if finally come into the US market. My daily skincare routine is like a mini vacation. I take it religiously. Some people might find the 10-step process excessive or a hassle, but I see it as mini-spa treatment. So when I travel, I make sure my mini-spa treatments come with me – especially for those long flights that really dry out my skin.
All your skincare needs can be found in New York City’s Korea Town. Many of the larger Korean skincare retailers are here. There’s The FaceShop, Nature’s Republic and Tony Moly, along with a handful of smaller shops.
Many products are travel friendly, but one of the things I love about buying Korean skincare products is that every purchase comes with free samples! They’re are great for traveling and small enough to keep in your handbag.
Pamper yourself to healthy skin by squeezing in little shopping spree between your visit to the Empire State Building and The Morgan Library & Museum nearby. To maintain healthy skin during your travels, here are 10 products to look for in Korea Town.
- Empire State Building
- 34th Street Herald Square
