Mamonde, whose name means “my world” in French, is one of the crown jewels of the Amorepacific group. Since its inception in 1991, the Korean cosmetic brand has harnessed the energy, vitality and resilience of flowering plants to create a range of skin care and makeup uniquely designed for the discerning urban sophisticate. At the heart of Mamonde Korea’s decades-long research lies the discovery that flower extracts can keep skin in tip-top condition by boosting its energy, enhancing hydration, strengthening the skin barrier and fighting oxidization. The brand’s groundbreaking complex Blossoming Energy™, which is infused in the Mamonde Red Energy Recovery Serum, presents a new pinnacle in flower-based skin care.
Today, Mamonde is a global powerhouse with physical or virtual presences in both Asia and North America. Many of its products enjoy cult status amongst beauty connoisseurs. In particular, the Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense, which was brand ambassador Park Shin-hye’s lipstick of choice in the 2018 K-Drama Memories of the Alhambra, turned Mamonde into a household name. Its central philosophy remains constant: to create nature-inspired, scientifically backed products that enhance a woman’s natural beauty and confidence. The result is an ever-evolving, ever-expanding product range that continues to revolutionize K-Beauty.
Mamonde’s highly regarded range of flower toners is anchored by the iconic Mamonde Rose Water Toner, which harnesses the power of roses to soothe, hydrate and soften skin. Formulated with 90.97% rose water in place of regular water, it comes free of seven harmful chemicals and is gentle enough for sensitive complexions. A good way to fully unlock its flower-based energy is to use it as a quick morning moisturizer or as a toner pack. Alternatively, apply in seven layers for an intensive hydrating treatment that delivers a clear, radiant finish.
The rest of the line is equally impressive, with every toner formulated for a specific skin care concern. Infused with nourishing honey and buckwheat flower extracts, the Mamonde Flower Honey Toner can help improve skin elasticity. For soothing sensitive skin, there’s the Mamonde Chamomile Pure Toner, whose minimalist formula comprises only six essential ingredients. The much-coveted Mamonde Pore Clean Toner absorbs sebum quickly with double layers of heartleaf extract and West Coast mud to draw out blackheads and produce a fine, poreless finish. For gentle exfoliation, the equally beloved Mamonde Aqua Peel Toner is an AHA toner that comes with plum blossom extract and apricot enzymes to slough off dead skin cells while refreshing skin with moisture.
Ideal for busy urban sophisticates, the brand’s flagship Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner offers ampoule-strength nourishment on top of skin-prepping benefits. A star of the Floral Hydro line, it provides lasting hydration with a potent mix of low-molecular hyaluronic acid and narcissus bulb extract. The hardy narcissus bulb is well-known amongst flowers for its superb water retention and water-circulating capabilities, making it an ideal ingredient for moisturization. Coming in a serum-like texture that turns watery upon contact with skin, this toner can be counted upon to plump up, clarify and revitalize tired complexions.
Catering to a diversity of skin types and skin concerns, Mamonde’s skin care range, particularly Mamonde creams, are charged with patented flower extracts on top of revitalizing ingredients such as vitamins and ceramides. The Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream offers intensive nourishment courtesy of hydrating narcissus bulb extracts, while the Mamonde Vital Vitamin Cream is infused with bitter orange flower extracts and six types of vitamins to recharge, brighten and firm up fatigued skin. Those with dry and damaged skin will welcome the Mamonde Ceramide Intense Cream, which comes in a rich yet non-greasy formulation. Chock-full of ceramide and hibiscus extracts, this cream provides 24-hour hydration while strengthening skin barriers. It’s proven to bring about significant improvements to skin barriers in as little as seven days.
Mature skin, meanwhile, will rejoice at the Mamonde Total Solution Cream, an anti-aging powerhouse infused with anti-oxidizing pomegranate extracts to brighten and firm up skin for a wrinkle-free finish. A star performer in the Mamonde family, it brings about the highest degree of skin-firming effects amongst Amorepacific creams. This line also boasts one of the most popular Mamonde eye creams: the Mamonde Total Solution Eye Cream, which combats sagging skin in the eye area with a similarly pomegranate-rich formula.
Refining skin is one of Mamonde’s major missions. For producing clean and poreless complexions, the brand offers the perennially popular Mamonde Pore Clean Blackhead Stick, a cleansing stick that removes blackheads and impurities with a single swipe. Harnessing the exfoliating power of heartleaf extract as well as the sebum-absorbing qualities of West Coast mud, this handy stick provides a gentle but thorough scrub for noses and sebum-controlling benefits – perfect for oily complexions.
No beauty routine is complete without a sun care product, and Mamonde is committed to providing the best. The Mamonde Everyday Sun Stick is formulated with calendula extracts to soothe sun-damaged skin and fitted with SPF 50+ PA++++ to block UV rays while protecting against external irritants. Coming in a curved and compact design for easy, on-the-go application, it boasts a non-sticky finish and long-lasting effects. For those who prefer sun creams, the same collection offers the equally high-performing Mamonde Everyday Aqua Sun Cream.
The Mamonde vision of beauty is rooted in creating a perfect canvas for makeup. For flawless coverage, opt for Mamonde bestsellers such as the Mamonde Brightening Cover Powder Cushion and the Mamonde Total Solution BB Cream. The Mamonde cushion compact comes infused with peach powder and offers a soft matte finish well-suited for oily complexions. The BB cream is a lightweight, summer-appropriate option infused with Mamonde’s Calendula Water™ to soothe skin and to bring about a glowing look.
Committed to impeccable looks, the brand also provides a quick fix to messy, uneven hairlines with the Mamonde Pang Pang Hair Shadow, a hair-coloring powder whose name refers to the sound the puff makes when tapped against the hairline. Not only does it give the appearance of darker, denser locks by covering sparse areas of your scalp, it also nourishes hair with added rosehip fruit extracts. Coming in three shades of brown, this product is especially useful for when your hair is in a high ponytail or a bun.
Korean makeup has long celebrated looks that are vibrant but natural-looking, and Mamonde is no exception. Perfect for creating a clean yet arresting look is the bestselling Mamonde lip product: the Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense. The highly pigmented, velvety matte lip crayon glides smoothly onto lips to leave vivid color. It comes in 25 shades ranging from the dramatic to the low-key, and lends itself easily to both bold and gradient lip looks. Legendary shades include Mamonde’s Brick Rose (muted rosy-brown), Velvet Coral (vibrant coral), Classic Burgundy (glamorous wine red) and Velvet Red (dramatic rosy-brown). Those into the glossy lip look revival can opt for the Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip, which comes in a high-shine formula and soft, girlish colors. For extra hydration, swipe on the Pure Lip Color Lip Balm beforehand. Packed with vanilla extracts, shea butter and almond oil, this tinted Mamonde lip balm keeps lips hydrated while delivering a soft wash of color.
