Why Korean Skin Care might be better for you!

So, you have heard about K-Beauty brands but never tried it? You sure are missing out! Let me tell you about d’Alba – a Korean skin care brand that infuses White Truffles (grown in Italy in the province of Piedmont Alba) in their skin care line! Why White Truffles? Because they are full of antioxidants to reverse signs of aging in our skin!


So, why is Korean skin care better than U.S. skin care? 


Korean beauty products use much gentler formulas thanks to the Korean tradition of using natural, unique, and harsh-free ingredients passed through multiple generations. Korean skin care uses super gentle ingredients that cause no irritation or redness (unlike many US brands that use very harsh ingredients to exfoliate etc.!)


Did you know that in Korea skin care is much more important than makeup? Korean women do not like to cover up their skin with heavy makeup- they like to treat and prevent the problems with their skin care products. The better your skin looks, the less makeup you need! I love that approach! Instead of covering up your skin with makeup (like we do a lot here in the US)- take care of your skin and its needs in the first place- so you have less to cover up! Makes total sense!


I have to tell you that the products that I tried from the K-Beauty brand d’Alba are all so super gentle: my skin is loving it! 

Here is what I have been using in the last weeks:


1.     d'Alba Peptide No-Sebum Mild Gel Cleanser


This is a wonderful gentle, but effective cleanser is also great for acne-prone skin or sensitive skin! Papaya extract, hibiscus extract, and peppermint leaf extract remove excess sebum and impurities while repairing skin's natural barrier by keeping pH level below 6.5 (slightly acidic to prevent future outbreaks). Gets even rid of my makeup and my skin feels clean- but not tight or stripped of its natural oils. 


2.     D’Alba Peptide No-Sebum Balancing Toner:


This super gentle toner contains 44% of pearl extract in addition to 20 other essential amino acids with minerals to brighten up your skin tone and smooths out your skin texture. Contains also niacinamide, adenosine, glycerin, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, coconut extract, and caprylyl glycol. The toner has a pH of 5.6 (neutral like water). 



3.     d’Alba White Truffle Peptide No-Sebum Repair Cream:


This cream is ideal for any skin type, including acne-prone or sensitive skin. It includes White Truffle, niacinamide, adenosine, tocopherol acetate, glycerin, calamine, rice extract, tea tree extra, and sunflower seed oil. It is a lightweight lotion that feels hydrating and moisturizing with a 6.5 pH level. Really loving this lightweight lotion! Super moisturizing but not heavy.



4.     d’Alba White Truffle Mist Spray Serum


This is the best spray serum in more than 120 beauty stores in South Korea, selected as the best spray serum in multiple beauty magazines, acknowledged by Korean celebrities and I can understand why! Not only does the nozzle provide the finest mist you can imagine- the spray feels absolutely magnificent on my skin! Refreshing and hydrating and luxurious. You have to try it to understand! 


Besides the white truffle this spray also contains avocado oil, sunflower seed oil, and chica seed extract. Talking about skin relief, skin elasticity, and glow. 


Don’t forget to shake the bottle before spraying! This is my absolute favorite product from the whole line! I just can’t stop spraying my face with this fine mist! 


Shake it! 


5.     d’Alba White Truffle Vital Spray Serum:


This truffle vital spray serum contains the white truffle and Lithospermi radix extract, 3 types of red flower oils (rose hip oil, red rose oil, scented geranium oil), cherry blossom extract, Aquaxyl, Beautiful Herb Story, Lora-Anti-S that provides organic nutrients to the skin and contributes to skin relief, skin vitality, and texture enhancement. Feels absolutely lovely on my skin! 

Shake it!



6.     d'Alba Piedmont Waterful Essence Sun Cream White Truffle Ingredients SPF50+


UV protection is a key pillar of Korean skincare, and D’Alba Waterfull Essence Sun Cream is a prime example of a Korean sunscreen and what it can do for you. Your skin is totally protected by this broad spectrum sunscreen, as its PA++++ rating lets you know it provides a shield against both cancerous sunburn-causing UVB rays and age accelerating UVA rays. The cutting-edge Korean formula ensures even sensitive skin can avoid irritation thanks to its mild and gentle nature!


Truly this sunscreen feels so lightweight, you forget that you applied it! It immediately sinks into the skin, and I can’t help but think: this sunscreen feels like silk on my skin! No annoying white cast and I love that!





The extra mild version of the sunscreen has also been approved by the Italian Vegetarian Association of its pure and 100% vegan substances. Due to its plant-based ingredients, it provides a mild and gentle application to the face while supplying the skin. Great for sensitive skin and even for children!


Contains also centella asiatica extract (gotu kola), tocopherol, hyaluronic acid, allantoin, witch-hazel extract, green tea water, holy basil extract, etc. add vitamin E. Formulated without all 20 types of harmful ingredients.


What an amazing K-Beauty brand! Super gentle skin care that is also perfect for acne-prone to sensitive skin.
