[Updated 25 April 2022] If there's one thing we miss about our trip to Korea, it's their cheap and high-quality skincare and beauty products that are available everywhere! So if you're looking to get the top-notch Korean beauty products delivered to you at home from COSRX to Mamonde and Klairs, we've got you covered. Note: We've done a bit of digging around and although some of these products are not certified as Halal, there is a website where you can check the exact ingredients of every beauty product listed. The Korean brands mentioned in this article largely use natural ingredients, so you can trust that your skin is getting all the goodness it needs!

Muslim-Friendly Korean Beauty Products Online

1. CHOBS Cleaner, Toner and more

Let's start with one of the rare halal-certified K-beauty products in the market! CHOBS' sheet masks are vegan-certified, and also halal-certified by the UAE's Emirates Authority for Standardization. Their sheet masks come in 6 'flavours' which each target a different skin type or need. Try out their Rice Bran mask for hydration, or Rose for anti-wrinkling. As far as we can tell, these are a product based in the UK but they use the same natural-based approach that K-beauty does! CHOBS has a total of 22 halal-certified products including Apple Bubble Cleanser, Morinaga Total Cream moisturizer, and Organic Argan Treatment Oil. Do note that not all of their products are halal-certified - you can look out for the halal logo to see which ones are. Order via: Shopee SG | Shopee MYInstagram

2. Talent Cosmetics Cheek Stick

Talent cosmetics is another K-beauty brand that produces Muslim-friendly products! Their Dia cheek stick is a stick-based blush with a gentle colour, that can be built up in layers until you get the perfect shade you desire! It even has a small brush to help with blending, making it a truly useful item that's a must-have in your cosmetics bag. Talent also has everything you might need from skincare to makeup across 141 different items. Do note that they were previously halal-certified by JAKIM (and were the first Korean company to receive this!), but we were unable to confirm if this is currently still valid. However, the brand has historically had a commitment to use Muslim-friendly products. Do purchase at your own discretion. Order via: Qoo10 SG | Shopee MYPrice: $32 Website

3. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream

This is an absolute must-try! It’s brilliant at moisturising your skin without feeling heavy or greasy. This product is particularly catered towards those with sensitive skin while restoring your hydration balance for stabilised skin. This cream also diminishes the appearance of your pores so you can use it as an extra step before putting on makeup. Order via:Guardian SGLAZADA SG | Shopee SG | Shopee MY Instagram

4. COSRX Centella Water Alcohol-free Toner

Korean toners are known to replenish the skin instead of stripping it. Spritz this all over your face before applying skincare and it’ll help your skin drink up even more moisture! It's an incredibly gentle toner that will calm down irritated or tight skin. Order via: Shopee SG | Shopee MYInstagram

5. COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

This cleanser will help remove any excess gunk off your face and get you feeling fresh and ready for the day! With its low pH level, you know it's definitely on the gentler side for your skin and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones. Order via: Shopee SG | Shopee MYInstagram

6. COSRX One Step Original Clear Pad/One Step Moisture Up Pad

If you're a skincare guru, chances are you'd already know the damage that physical exfoliators do to your skin. But if you're unaware, using a physical exfoliator (like those scrubs with tiny plastic beads) to remove dead skin makes your skin overly sensitive and irritated, and could even break your skin's most protective barrier. By using alternatives like a chemical exfoliator or these pads, it's much gentler and leaves your skin just as soft too. The pads have a bumpy side and a smooth side. On a clean face, first use the bumpy and then smooth, then continue with your skincare. Order via: Shopee SG | Shopee MY Instagram

7. COSRX Acne Master Pimple Patch

Leaving them on overnight seems to have the best effect. Bonus: it physically stops you from touching your spots and irritating them further! Order via: Shopee SG| Shopee MYInstagram

8. The Face Shop MasCream Sheet Masks

The Face Shop seems to have hit the nail on the head with this particular collection. The masks below help to deeply nourish your skin. These are an absolute MUST when you want an evening to pamper your skin without breaking the bank. Instead of flimsy material soaked in a serum, these sheet masks are made of thick cotton and coated with plenty of nourishing crème.

9. Banila Co Clean it Zero

If you're used to taking off makeup with cleansing oil (which could work great), you're already probably used to the greasy residue that it leaves on your skin...which sometimes can feel more oily than having makeup on your face. Here comes Clean It Zero! The product melts the makeup off your face without a greasy feeling, it has a light scent and it doesn't strip the skin of its natural moisture. The product works better slightly wet as it really gets to work. You can wash it off once and repeat this step to get everything entirely off before you start cleansing.

10. Mamonde Rose Water Toner

Mamonde is another K-beauty brand that's become more popular lately! Their rose water toner is one of their best-sellers and is full of rose water that helps your skin stay extra-hydrated. It also comes in the form of toner pads for extra convenience! Swipe one of these over your face at the start of a busy day to get your skin prepped and ready for what's ahead.
