Amorepacific get to know the Korean Skincare Brand

Amorepacific’s status as a beauty trailblazer is fairly well documented. The Korean skincare brand was formulating its lineup of antiaging wonders with green tea extracts long before the potent antioxidant became a buzzword ingredient. But the goodness that exists at the back of its Soho store is slightly less recognized. There, AmorePacific’s lead aesthetician, Lisa Vela, is on hand to administer facials with the brand’s wealth of creams and tinctures, so that when you step out onto Spring Street, your skin is dewy and glowing and nary a visible red blotch can be seen—a rarity following extractions of any kind. What helps to temper the inflammation and treat winter weather-weary skin is a few drops of its delicately scented, satiny-textured Green Tea Seed Treatment Oil, which Vela massages into the skin toward the end of a service. Cultivated from Amorepacific’s proprietary green tea fields on Jeju Island off the coast of South Korea, the elixir was first created exclusively for use in facial treatments. But the response from consumers was so enthusiastic that the brand decided to add it to its roster for a limited time. Rich in polyphenols, vitamin E, and linoleic acid, it calms, adds radiance, and creates a protective barrier, helping skin regenerate. And the finish is nearly matte, which is an added boon for oily types who fear skin oils’ greasy aftermath. Though the brand recommends layering it under its Time Response Crème to remedy severely dry skin, the fluid happens to be perfectly sufficient as a nighttime treatment on its own. But act now; we’ve got a feeling this one won’t be around for long.
