Sure, on one side of the K-beauty spectrum, you’ve got your gimmicky banana-shaped hand creams and hair masks housed in mayonnaise jars, but on the other side, you’ve got insanely powerful eye creams infused with snail mucin (which helps reduce fine lines), cleansing oils and balms that remove waterproof makeup without stripping skin, gentle toners that kill whiteheads and blackheads while moisturizing your face, and approximately a billion other excellent mashups that all work to hydrate your skin while zapping dark spots, wrinkles, discoloration, and acne. Basically, K-beauty is life.

But we also know that K-beauty can be overwhelming—where do you start when you don’t even know what half of the ingredients do, and you can’t physically pick them up in the skin-care aisle at Walgreens? That’s where we come in. We rounded up the 13 best, top-rated, must-have-or-I’ll-cry products that have become cult favorites in the Korean (and now American) beauty world, so you, too, can fall in love. Click through to see the lineup!
