The product: Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm ($39)
The story: Already popular in its native Korea, Dr. Jart+ packs some serious skin care into this balm. Skin-brightening arbutin will lead to a more even complexion over time, and a peptide complex fights premature signs of aging.
Sun protection: Excellent. SPF 45 and a PA+++ rating provide broad-spectrum coverage.
What we like: The cream feels imperceptible on the skin, and it adds a dewy glow without looking greasy. Plus, the formula doesn't oxidize and turn orange — a big plus in our book.
What we don't: There's only one shade available, and the rigid packaging makes it nearly impossible to use all the BB cream inside.
