Korean cosmetics brand VT has been around for more than a decade. Founded in 2010, VT was initially an oral care specialist before eventually transforming into a major skin care and makeup brand. As one of the leading K-Beauty brands, VT is a trendsetter in the beauty industry. The brand has collaborated with K-pop sensations to release exclusive collections, including those with BTS, SORN and BTS’s LINE characters, BT21.
VT embraces simplicity and utilizes natural ingredients, including cica extract and Hyaluro 8 Complex, in its skin care products. Backed by skin science technology and dermatological research and development, VT’s products are designed to work seamlessly in your daily skin care routine.
VT has two main collections: the Cica line and the Super Hyalon line. The Cica line features products formulated with CICALIAO™ that soothe skin and strengthen the skin barrier. The Super Hyalon range offers products that boost skin hydration, thanks to the star ingredients y-Polyglutamic Acid and Hyaluro 8 Complex.
The Cica Line
The Cica line is ideal for those with stressed-out or sensitive skin, or for those with a damaged skin barrier. VT developed a unique patented ingredient called CICALIAO™, which consists of centella asiatica extract, green propolis and centella 4X complex.
A wide variety of products from this line can be easily incorporated into b your skin care routine, including cleansers, masks, essences, toner pads and spot treatments. The Cica Mild Foam Cleanser provides a deep cleanse without stripping skin of its natural oils. In addition to cica extract, the cleanser is formulated with hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated.
After cleansing, prep your skin with a hydrating mist like VT’s Cica Double Mist. This face mist contains a green layer containing the brand’s patented ingredient CICALIAO™, which doesn’t just refresh skin but also calms and rehydrates skin. Follow with the Cica Single Origin Essence 100 for extra hydrating and soothing benefits.
Whether you get the occasional spot or your skin is prone to acne, the Cica Spot Patch is an essential to help your blemishes heal and prevent further irritation. These hydrocolloid patches are sweat and waterproof, and the slim design provides natural coverage. The Cica Mild Toner Pad also works well for oily or acne-prone skin. The toner pads contain BHA to get rid of dead skin cells and break down excess oil, leaving you with an improved skin tone and texture.
To end your routine, lock in the moisture with VT’s Cica Cream, which calms and moisturizes skin, plus fortifies the skin barrier. Featuring ingredients like panthenol, beta-glucan and ceramide NP, the cream offers instant relief for irritated skin and protects it from environmental stressors.
The Super Hyalon Line
While the Cica line is all about soothing care, the Super Hyalon line focuses on deeply hydrating skin and maintaining its moisture balance. Products from this range are formulated with G:H8™, which is composed of y-Polyglutamic Acid and eight kinds of hyaluronic acid.
The entire line is suitable for all skin types, and is especially beneficial for those with dry or dehydrated skin. If you’re new to the brand, start with the Super Hyalon Foam Cleanser to wash away impurities and buff away dead skin cells, thanks to papain enzymes in its formula. If you have enlarged pores or you’re dealing with textured skin, follow with the Super Hyalon Bubble Sparkling Booster Set to refine skin texture and get rid of any buildup from your pores. Feed your skin with the Super Hyalon Skin Booster next for a burst of hydration. Its watery texture absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a tacky finish.
To ensure long-lasting hydration, add the Super Hyalon Ampoule to your routine. You can also opt for the Super Hyalon Ampoule Set, which has individually packed ampoules that are perfect for when you’re on the go. Daily use of this ampoule will keep your skin hydrated and plump. On days when you want to treat your skin to a hydrating mask, apply the Super Hyalon 7 Days Mask in lieu of the ampoule. Each sheet mask is drenched in essence that supplies hydration, gets rid of flaky skin and rejuvenates dull skin. In addition to the brand’s patented blend of Gamma-PGA (Polyglutamic Acid) and Hyaluro 8 Complex, the masks are also infused with machihyun extract, white willow peel extract and lactobacillus to calm and protect skin against environmental aggressors.
