ROUND LAB: Meet Korea’s Number 1 Skincare Brand
If you have ever checked out Olive Young’s or Hwahae Awards in the past few years, you definitely have seen this brand before. Winning awards after awards, Round Lab has made a name for itself in Korea, and is now ready to make it big in the West.

1025 Dokdo Line
Holding a special meaning in Korean people’s hearts, this line represents the Dokdo Conflict and its resolution on October 25th, 1900. Reclaiming a small group of islets after 300 years, the brand uses mineral water and ingredients found on the territory in their formulas. The superstar ingredient is the Ulleungdo Deep Sea Water that is collected from 5,000 feet below the sea level of the East Sea. Containing over 90 minerals (woah) this rich and clean water increases blood circulation, cell renewal, and has nourishing and anti-ageing properties from the minerals.

Inje Birch Tree Line
We have all seen the Birch Juice Moisturising Sunscreen all over our Tik Tok and yes, it is that good. The Inje Birch Tree line as the name suggests, is formulated with Birch Tree Extract from the Inje Forest, where the first birch trees in Korea originated from. This common tree has actually amazing skincare benefits that are often overlooked by many brands. Not only does it deeply hydrate the skin, it also stimulates collagen production, purifies, reduces inflammations, and brightens the skin. To be honest, the list goes on and on.
