TOP PROPOLIS SKINCARE PRODUCTS
CHEN TENG on AUGUST 3, 2020
There has been a new trend steadily growing for a while now in Korea. Korean skincare brands across the board have been making sure to highlight a key ingredient in their product lines. That magic element is propolis. Propolis is the material that happens after tree sap and beeswax combine and mixes together. The beeswax comes from bees as they fill in their honeycombs for protection. Propolis has many amazing skincare benefits: antibacterial, smoothes and soothes, moisturizes, combats oil production, and fights free radicals. It works especially great for those with acne or dry skin. Below we have comprised a list of some amazing propolis-based skincare products that you should definitely check out.
COSRX Propolis Toner, Ampoule, & Light Cream
Cosrx is known for always coming out with one amazing product after another, and their propolis skincare line is no exception. Their Propolis Synergy Toner contains 72.6% Black Bee Propolis extract which leaves your skin glowing and feeling smooth after application. The Propolis Light Ampoule has 83% Black Bee Propolis Extract that acts as a compact moment of moisture for your face. The Propolis Light Cream is infused with a black bee propolis complex that leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft and hydrated without weighing it down.
Dr. Ceuracle Royal Vital Propolis Ampoule & 33 Cream
Dr. Ceuracle’s Royal Vita Propolis Ampoule & 33 Cream have been touted by skincare enthusiasts as a must use in your skincare routine. The combination of both propolis and royal jelly extract enhances its high anti-oxidizing and anti-inflammation properties to become even more effective. Both products will leave your skin radiating and silky smooth. The ampoule & cream also contain vitamins C, B3, and B5 to give your skin that extra dose of hydration and brightness.
Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Essence
Skinfood has come back with an upgraded version of their Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Essence. The product now contains 63% propolis extract and 10% royal jelly extract. Additional ingredients include fermented yeast and lactobacillus which helps to give your skin an extra pump of moisture while evening out your skin tone. The consistency of this essence is quite light and not tacky or sticky at all. It will give your skin that ideal, perfect dewy look in the morning.
Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel
Benton is a cult K-beauty favorite and for good reason. Their Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel does exactly what it advertises. Since the formula contains both aloe and propolis, it is incredibly effective in soothing any irritations on the skin. The gel also can help to brighten your face while fading out any long-lasting scarring on the skin. Highly recommended if you have acne-prone or oily skin.
Herb Note Propolis Aqua Glow Ampoule
Herbnote is an up-and-coming skincare brand in Korea that is known for making simple and effective products. Their Propolis Aqua Glow Ampoule contains 36% of Canadian premium propolis extract, which gives us a clue in understanding how the quality of propolis varies based on its external environment. As Canada is one of the least polluted countries in the world, it means that the propolis being used in this ampoule is one of the best options available. The ampoule also contains hyaluronic acid and panthenol for extra moisturizing benefits. It also has ingredients of sophora extract and centella asiatica to soothe the skin. This ampoule works especially great for those with dry or sensitive skin.
