The Oh K! Mask Edit
Complexion and flawlessness are of great importance in Korean tradition, with the belief that you can tell your fate and fortune by your skin. While Western women typically follow a three-step regime, in South Korea there are 10 plus steps, including the use of essence, ampoule creams and sheet masks. To make this luxury accessible to even the most time-starved schedule, Oh K! has taken the essential components of the Korean regime and created a lust-worthy mask collection.

The latest product set to take Instagram by storm is a new masking kit, allowing users to create their own gold glow peel-off mask. The Mix Your Own Gold Dust Mask (RRP: £12.50) launches next month with ASOS, Debenhams, Topshop, Bentalls and Fenwick in the UK and with OVS in Europe.
