Erborian is trending on TikTok. It’s fast becoming the next ‘IT’ beauty brand, with skincare enthusiasts hailing it as a must-have for those who love multi-purpose products. Whether you’ve never heard of it or want to learn more, this edit will let you know why Erborian is worth your attention and which products to try first…
Who Are Erborian?
Erborian, which translates as oriental herbs’ launched in 2007 to create innovative and impactful skincare formulas that allow you to get the best out of your skin in a minimal amount of steps. Using botanicals used in traditional Korean medicine, Erborian developed the first BB cream to launch in Europe.
Today, Erborian has a range of easy-to-use formulas that seamlessly combine skincare and makeup. Adorned by fans globally, one Erborian CC Creme is sold every minute worldwide; with 40 global beauty awards under their belt, it’s no surprise that we already have so many fans in the Escentual office.
1. The Radiance Boosting CC Cream
A skincare icon, it’s no surprise the Erborian CC Creme High Definition Radiance Face Cream SPF 25 is at the top of our list. Its multi-purpose formula improves your skin’s texture and tone for a unified complexion. With SPF 25 sun protection and vitamin E, the CC cream protects against external aggressors that cause ageing and dryness. But that’s not all! It also contains encapsulated pigments that adjust to your skin tone for light coverage and a radiant finish.
2. The Redness Corrector
Redness or rosacea tends to affect those with fairer skin tones and can be difficult to treat. That’s where the Erborian CC Red Correct Automatic Perfector SPF 25 comes in. The award-winning colour corrector combines skincare and makeup to help diminish redness. Its bold colour is down to green pigments that transform on application to adapt to your skin tone for a natural and even finish. Its gentle formula is free from nasties that may irritate, such as sulfates, parabens and formaldehyde.
3. The High-Coverage BB Cream
The Erborian Super BB Covering Care-Cream SPF 20 is a best seller for its ability to conceal imperfections and its natural full-coverage finish that evens your complexion. Perfect for those looking to cover acne without using a full-coverage foundation, the BB cream has a natural, velvety finish. Powered by skin-caring ingredients like fermented Ginseng flower, the BB cream is perfect for those with combination and oily skin as it helps to reduce imperfections, including pimples, pores and blackheads.
4. The Smoothing Skin Perfector
So much more than a basic primer! The Erborian Skin Hero Bare Skin Perfector is a non-tinted cream that blurs, smooths and illuminates your skin instantly. The daily moisturiser reveals an even complexion over time thanks to its retexturing enzymes that promote skin cell turnover. The multi-purpose formula has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help protect the skin from damaging free radicals that cause dryness and premature ageing so that you can feel confident without makeup.
5. The Gentle Exfoliator
The Erborian Milk And Peel Mask is the product we were most excited to try in the Escentual office, not only because it’s boxed in a super adorable milk carton but also because it reveals ‘new skin’ in just five minutes. The resurfacing mask contains sesame milk for its anti-inflammatory properties and rich fatty acid content; it perfectly balances exfoliation and nourishment. An at-home substitute for a chemical peel, your skin is visibly smoother, radiant and even without the expensive price tag.
6. The Anti-Ageing Eye Cream
The award-winning Erborian Ginseng Infusion Total Eye Tensor Effect Eye Cream is a must for those with tired and ageing eyes. An innovative white ginseng complex including liquorice, wild yam and ginseng root come together to smooth wrinkles and crow’s feet whilst protecting the delicate skin around your eyes. Get that well-rested, youthful look with the anti-ageing eye cream’s brightening action that diminishes bags, puffiness and dark circles.
7. The Glow Enhancing Gel
Experience red pepper like never before with the Erborian Radiance Boosting Gel Cream. A Korean super ingredient that’s renowned for its energising properties, red pepper will soften, comfort and brighten your skin. The Red Pepper Pulp Mask plumps your skin with moisture for a radiant glow that’s perfect for those looking to ‘recharge’ tired, lacklustre skin. Its innovative, refreshing gel texture has a subtle cooling effect for a re-energised feeling. But don’t worry! Erborian has cut the spice (capsaicin), so you don’t have to worry about heat or irritation.
8. The At Home Facial
Are you looking for an at-home facial peel, but you’re not convinced you’ll see results? The Erborian Skin Hero Peeling has clinically proven effectiveness. The Skin Hero Peel enhances your bare skin by removing dead skin cells for an even complexion. Its innovative Ginseng Complex contains a mix of natural acids, AHA’s, BHA’s and PHA’s to renew your skin. But the results are in the research! After just two minutes of use, 45 users agreed…
• 100% agreed their skin felt softer
• 93% agreed their skin felt smoother
• 89% agreed their pores were reduced
• 89% agreed they had more radiant skin
• 86% agreed their fine lines were reduced
9. The Firming Serum
80% of the Erborian Ginseng Super Serum is made from Korean super ingredients, including a fermented red ginseng extract to fight the signs of ageing. Erborian spotlights Korean Ginseng by including the highest concentration of active molecules that are harvested after six years of growth. An addition of white ginseng complex smooths wrinkles and improves elasticity. Its lightweight, fluid texture is almost ‘watery’ for a natural, comfortable finish that’s not sticky.
10. The Nourishing Cleanser
Korea invented the double cleanse! It’s the process of using a cleansing oil followed by a water-based face wash for healthy and clean skin. So when it comes to an effective and sensorial cleanser, Erborian knows a thing or two. The Centella Cleansing Oil can be used alone, but it also makes the perfect partner with the Centella Cleansing Gel for a double cleanse. The gentle yet effective formula transforms into a milky lotion that removes waterproof makeup, excess oil and impurities.
