As we all learn more and more about the power of Korean beauty, buzzy brands will enter the scene that make us wonder how we lived without them. d’Alba Piedmont was that for me, specifically the brand’s White Truffle skincare line. I thought I knew a lot about K-beauty but there continues to be more to learn and more products to try. When I heard the brand sold seven million bottles (!) of its white truffle-infused serum in South Korea, I knew I needed it on my skin — STAT.
But first, I did my research. “d’Alba” means “dawn” in Italian. Why an Italian name for a Korean brand? Well, the brand’s white truffles are grown in the Italian province of Piedmont Alba. It works with a professional white truffle extraction organization to ensure the safest extraction process. Due to Piedmont law, d’Alba is only allowed to extract them from September through January, making the ingredient all the more special.
But why white truffles at all? The powerhouse ingredient delivers ample minerals and nutrients to the skin, such as anti-aging peptides, essential fatty acids, B vitamins and vitamin C. These help repair the skin and prevent hyperpigmentation, brightening the complexion and smoothing rough texture. That’s more than enough reason for me.
As someone with sensitive skin, I love that all d’Alba products have completed clinical hypoallergenic trials and are tested by dermatologists. Many are fragrance-free and all are vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and paraben-free. Each product is especially great for aging skin with additional line-reducing and skin-plumping ingredients.
Below are seven products from the White Truffle line I think you’re going to want to try. And with nothing over $54 and all available on Amazon Prime, it’s basically a no-brainer.
