Skin Elixir, $68 for 100ml

One of the latest K-beauty brands to make its way to our shores, Whal Myung combines the best of the new and old, harnessing state-of-the-art skincare technology and traditional South Korean herbal formulations to bring you holistic skincare that beautifies skin from the inside out.

Its Skin Elixir, in particular, is a cult favourite. This three-in-one product—toner, serum and facial oil—rebalances, treats and hydrates skin in one simple but revitalising step. At its heart is the WM1897-P5 complex, a unique composition of traditional South Korean herbs. Among these are extracts of five herbs rich in antioxidants and vitamin C that were used in Whal Myung Su, the first product released by Dong Wha Pharm 122 years ago, formulated with a secret recipe used by the Korean royal court. Complementing the complex is a host of hydrating active ingredients.

To use, shake the bottle lightly to mix all the ingredients. Then, spray evenly over cleansed skin with your eyes closed. To aid absorption, gently press product into skin with your palms. You can also use it any time throughout the day for a quick boost of moisture for instantly plumper-looking skin.
