Hi all, these are the final new K-beauty skincare releases of the year 2015!
Most are freshly announced, or only available on their official Korean websites. These products can be purchased through using a buying service like the one provided by Avecko.com. One of the first stores with international shipping to carry new releases is Tester Korea. At times, new releases will start popping up in their store within a couple of days, so make sure to check them out!
New Label Young Death's Peeling Gel, a Shocking Peeling Gel
The new 'Shocking Peeling Gel' (or Death's Peeling Gel, which is the Korean name for the product) is supposed to be an extremely gentle peeling gel. The main ingredients of the gel are Sulfur, Licorice Root Extract, Angelica Extract, Rehmannia Glutinosa Extract, and Cnidium Extract. It also contains 20 different natural botanicals to soothe and condition the skin.

If anyone has any questions about any of these products or want to know more about ingredients.... please shoot me a note or tweet me @unsightlygimp. If you have a tip or news byte to share with me I'd also appreciate it! Do you have your eye on anything? I'm in the mood to change my hair color, but am more intrigued by the EZN pudding hair dyes than the new milk ones. I'm currently on a no-buy for skincare.
