I’m not much of a plant person. I’ve been known to kill nearly every flower, succulent, etc., I lay my hands on. But when it’s in skin care? I’m all for it, especially if it’s gentle enough for my super sensitive skin. Luckily, there’s a new flower-infused beauty brand that is mild on skin, effective and boasts the floral beauty without ever having to take care of them.
Mamonde, a skin-care line from leading K-beauty brand AmorePacific, is officially landing in the U.S. and launching in Ulta stores and online. Inspired by the actual Mamonde Garden which is an hour outside of Seoul, South Korea, these products are all infused with floral essences, including damask rose for its soothing properties, hibiscus for moisture, and narcissus for replenishing the skin. Not only do the products smell like a lush greenhouse, but also they’re energizing, yet gentle on the skin.
The range is full of heavy-duty hydrators, like essences, water-gel moisturizers, and, of course, sheet masks. (What would a K-beauty line be without a plethora of sheet masks?) And when it comes to sheet masks, Mamonde definitely delivers: the brand has seven floral-infused options, including magnolia and camellia, which promise to nourish dry, tired skin in less than 20 minutes. You can either purchase these masks individually ($7 each) or as a seven-day sampler ($32). (Pro tip: I like to use the leftover serum in the sheet mask sachets on my neck and hands for little extra kick of hydration.)
If you’re familiar with the multiple steps of a K-beauty skin-care routine, you know that double cleansing is huge. Mamonde, however, has simplified that step with its Petal Spa Oil to Foam cleanser ($21). Instead of washing your skin with an oil cleanser and then following up with a foamy wash, this formula can be used as both — gently dissolving makeup with the oil and then forming a creamy lather when water is added. It’ll leave your skin feeling clean without stripping away the good stuff. Oh, and your face will also smell like rose oil, which is always a plus.
Also included in Mamonde’s exclusive launch at Ulta are the following: Petal Purifying Bubble Mask, Brightening Cover Watery Cushion, Hydrating Beauty Water, Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask, Micro Lip and Eye Makeup Remover, Floral Moisture Cream, Pore Clean Clay Mask, Floral Essence Serum, Floral Hydro Cream, and the Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream. Phew!
Mamonde is now exclusively on ulta.com for $7 to $38 and will launch in select Ulta stores nationwide on March 5 — just in time for the spring blooms.
