As you know, our aim at Glossy HQ is to bring you the biggest and best beauty brands out there, each and every month. 

And this is exactly what we do! 

This month, we brought you a whole host of wonderful brands in your October ‘Beauty Tales’ box and for some of you this included Korean beauty brand AHC. 

About AHC 

Established in 1999 in Seoul, South Korea, AHC began as a professional skincare line catering to private aesthetic spas and dermatological clinics. After enthusiastic reviews of the brand’s innovative skincare spread, it was apparent AHC’s products needed to be more readily available to everyone wanting to give them a try. To meet demand, top quality yet affordable and easy-to-use products were created. And today, these same products are adored by beauty lovers across the world. 

Glossy HQ’s Favourite Products From AHC 

Essential Real Eye Cream For Face 

Those who were lucky enough to discover AHC in their October box will already have gotten their hands on this miracle working elixir! The Essential Real Eye Cream For Face has all the benefits of a concentrated eye cream, but can be used on your whole face. Brewed with peptides and vitamins, this lightweight gel balances out the texture of your skin, providing intense hydration and making it firmer after just one use. 

Aqua Essential Masks 

AHC’s range of 100% cotton sheet masks deliver intense hydration to your complexion, leaving your skin feeling smooth and radiantly healthy. These skin revitalising masks also feature the brand’s patented moisturising ingredient Aqua Ceramide, which: 

  • offers an injection of intense moisture 
  • defends against uncomfortable dry skin 
  • quenches parched skin to reveal skin that looks dewy and soft to the touch 
There are three different AHC sheet masks - Lifting, Nourishing and Calming - and we love them all.

AHC Aqua Essential Lifting Mask 

Restore a more youthful, radiant appearance with a sheet mask that’s enriched with 93% natural ingredients. Sunflower Seed Oil and Lupinus Albus Seed extract work in unison to create the illusion of a base that is firmer and plumper. 

AHC Aqua Essential Nourishing Mask 

Formulated to nourish dry skin, this mild mask is made from naturally derived ingredients. Kind to the skin, it gently infuses your complexion with essential hydration for a softer, smoother finish. Added Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein and Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein help to balance your complexion, leaving behind skin-loving nutrients to restore harmony and a healthier-looking glow. In addition, seven plant extracts also offer long-lasting comfort, soothing rough, dry areas for increased suppleness and radiance. 

AHC Aqua Essential Calming Mask 

This soothing sheet mask is powered by a host of nourishing ingredients that work to comfort and replenish the look of tired skin. Ultra-soft, this face mask’s formula boasts a variety of beneficial components that unite to deliver calming properties to stressed complexions in need of a little TLC.  

Whichever mask is best for your needs, place the sheet mask onto a freshly cleansed face and massage into your skin using your fingertips. Leave on for 10 to 20 minutes before the sheet and massaging any excess product into the skin.

Aqualuronic Range

Intensive moisture boosting and nourishing, AHC's Aqualuronic skin care range has been designed to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin for 24 hour hydration.

Products in the Aqualuronic range are each a combination of key ingredients, such as Hyaluronic acid, mineral rich seawater and AHC's exclusive Aqua Ceramide Complex. The range includes:

Aqualuronic Face Cleanser

Cleansing should be the first step in any skincare routine. The soft microfoam of this cleanser removes skin impurities, providing deep cleansing and leaving your complexion hydrated - all without the feeling of tight skin after use.

Aqualuronic Face Toner

This toner’s highly moist and refreshing fluid formula gently seeps into the skin to refine and polish your complexion’s texture.

Aqualuronic Emulsion Face Lotion

After using toner, gently apply a few drops of emulsion all over your face and neck. The milky emulsion will absorb instantly without stickiness, and leave your skin feeling supple and nourished.

Aqualuronic Face Serum

The rich translucent serum glides on to leave skin feeling smooth, sleek, and refreshed, and help fortify its moisture barrier.

Aqualuronic Face Cream

This cream’s refreshing gel texture gently locks onto your skin to form a tight moisture seal and keep your complexion hydrated. This product provides long-lasting hydration and works to replenish your skin.

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
