You have ginseng! Niacinamide! Propolis! Panthenol! Alpha Arbutin! All the hottest skincare ingredients and all in those beautiful little bottles!

These serums are each targeted to help manage the appearance of skin concerns like dark spots, dullness, skin texture, fine lines and enlarged pores.

We’ve had a few weeks with them so keep scrolling to read our thoughts on Beauty of Joseon serums so you can figure out which one(s) can help with your skin concerns.

Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum: Propolis + Niacinamide

Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum

What:

Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum: Propolis + Niacinamide

  • Has a thick, almost honey-like texture, but absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t feel sticky.
  • Made with 60% propolis and 2% niacinamide – a dream combination!
  • Perfect for those with oily, and acne-prone skin. This is a must try for you guys 👀.

You’ll love this serum if:

You’re sick of your enlarged pores and need something to help control sebum.

We weren’t sure about this serum at first due to its thick texture, but it absorbs completely after a minute or two and didn’t feel sticky.

Those who suffer from oily skin – this is the serum for you! The niacinamide and propolis worked amazingly well to reduce sebum production, which mean it won’t clog pores, which means that pores appear smaller.

And for those pores that do get clogged, the propolis helps to fight the bacterial growth that causes acne.

As a bonus, the niacinamide concentration in this serum is only 2%, so it may be gentle enough for those with sensitivity to more powerful niacinamide serums.

An amazing option, and definitely one of the best serums by Beauty of Joseon – highly recommended!

Beauty of Joseon Calming Serum: Green Tea + Panthenol

Beauty of Joseon Calming Serum

What:

Beauty of Joseon Calming Serum: Green Tea + Panthenol

  • Formulated with 76.49% green tea and 2% panthenol.
  • Reduces redness and calms inflamed and irritated skin
  • The added panthenol helps repair and strengthen the skin barrier

You’ll love this serum if:

You have periods where your skin erupts with breakouts and gets irritated and inflamed (hormonal acne sufferers, where you at?).

Green tea is a natural anti-oxidant that can fight acne-causing bacteria and gently relieve and soothe angry and inflamed skin and decrease redness.

It’s great to use as a first serum – to calm the skin down before applying your other serums.

Beauty of Joseon Revive Eye Serum: Ginseng + Retinal

Beauty of Joseon Revive Eye Serum

What:

Beauty of Joseon Revive Eye Serum: Ginseng + Retinal

  • An eye serum designed to quickly repair fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • That’s not a typo – it’s retinal not retinol, which shows results much faster than retinol (some say up to 11 times faster 😲)
  • 10% Ginseng Root extract quickly infuses water into the skin and plump up fine lines and wrinkles

You’ll love this serum if:

You’ve started to notice fine lines and wrinkles forming around your eye area, particularly around the undereye and crow’s feet area.

It contains 2% retinal but only an 0.02% concentration of the active ingredient within retinal.

Retinal is similar to retinol – a derivative of vitamin A that stimulates skin cells and encourages collagen production – making it super effective for fine lines and wrinkles.

The difference is the speed at which these ingredients work. Retinal works much quicker due to the way the skin absorbs the ingredient.

However, there’s a downside to that speed. It is harsher than retinol, so may cause sensitivity for some. We recommend you do a patch test of this product first before applying it.

For those that can tolerate it, this is a good option for to address the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and also want to improve hydration.

(And a secret tip – this “eye” serum can actually be used your face or other parts of your body as well!)

Beauty of Joseon Glow Deep Serum: Rice + Alpha Arbutin

Beauty of Joseon Glow Deep Serum

What:

Beauty of Joseon Glow Deep Serum: Rice + Alpha Arbutin

  • 68.6% rice bran water gives its watery texture, and is known as ‘beauty water’ in traditional Korean skincare because of its ability to moisturise and clarify the skin.
  • 2% alpha arbutin extracted from plants helps fade dark spots, pigmentation and acne scars.
  • Suitable for all skin types

You’ll love this serum if:

Your skin is prone to dark spots or acne scars (aka the little marks left behind after a pimple).

The alpha arbutin is derived from plant sources and is at a 2% concentration, which is great for those who may be sensitive to higher concentrations of alpha arbutin.

How does the Beauty of Joseon Glow Deep Serum differ from the Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum?

The Glow Deep serum is targeted more for pigmentation and uneven skin tone, whereas the Glow serum is targeted more for sebum control, minimising pores and inflamed skin.

So they both give you a glow, just in different ways. It depends what your concerns are!

Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum: Ginseng + Snail Mucin

Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum

What:

Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum: Ginseng + Snail Mucin

  • Formulated for skin that has lost a bit of its youthfulness – this serum is great for restoring skin elasticity and that youthful glow.
  • 63% ginseng root water infuses skin with moisture, while 3% snail mucin protects damaged skin and restores its bounciness.
  • Was previously called the “Repair” serum, but it has been updated to be more effective and to revive tired skin

You’ll love this serum if:

Your skin needs a bit of a boost in its elasticity and brightness. 

Using this in combination with the Beauty of Joseon Ginseng Water can maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of the ginseng. Our skin felt super hydrated and bouncier from the inside.

The texture is slightly thicker than water, and is suitable for dry, oily and sensitive skin. Particularly if you have concerns around skin losing a bit of its elasticity, uneven skin tone, and general dullness.

Pro tip: we’ve seen great effects when paired with the Glow Deep serum.
