This Gender-Neutral, K-Beauty-Inspired Line Was Created For All Skin Types
Generalizations are tricky things, but here's one we feel safe in making: pretty much everyone — regardless of gender — wants clear skin. Thanks to the rise of KonMari and the idea of minimalism becoming trendy, people are also looking for a simple face-cleansing process that takes as few steps as possible. One new beauty brand called Panacea checks off both boxes, offering gender-neutral products while streamlining an excessive 10-step K-beauty routine into just three products designed to clear all skin types.
Since skin is so personal, creating products that work for all types of complexions might seem like a tough — or damn near impossible — task. But as with any millennial brand, the proof is in Panacea's fan base. Along with earning viral shout-outs from the likes of celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin and Milk Studios founder Jenna Lombardo, Panacea has also earned a 97 percent average of five-star reviews in the comments on its Aegis Kit ($92).
Reviewers who have sensitive skin praise the cleanser for not overdrying their face, yet those prone to oily complexions report a reduction in breakouts after continuous use. Can a product truly work on both types of skin? Let's take a look at this set.
