From botanical-infused sheet masks to facial serums, BB creams and beauty waters, K Beauty is all the rage in skincare today – and what started in Korea is quickly finding its way to our shore.
The newest entry into this growth category – Mamonde, owned by Amore Pacific, celebrated their launch by creating a pop-up version of famed Mamonde garden, located just outside of Seoul, right in New York’s Soho.

For beauty know-it-all Dara Levy, the creation of DERMAFLASH was a lifelong dream. Considered the ‘beauty maven’ in her circle of friends, Dara took her passion for aesthetic beauty up a notch when she opened a luxury medspa in Chicago’s Gold Coast in 2009. Rather than just turning women on to her latest beauty discoveries, she decided to bring together the best of the best treatments, products, and experts all under one gorgeous roof. In December 2015, her first beauty innovation DERMAFLASH was launched, and she has more innovations in the pipeline.
Dara sat down for skinny lattes with BITB, and we picked her beauty brain about her new company and what the future holds.
During the cold winter months, there’s nothing better than curling up with a cup of tea. Be it green, black, peppermint, or chamomile, tea is soothing to your soul AND your skin. Its antioxidants flush out toxins from the skin and ease puffiness, while helping to counteract environmental pollutants such as UV exposure and cigarette smoke that can prematurely age and wrinkle your skin. January is National Hot Tea Month, and a good time to add tea not only to your morning routine but to your beauty repertoire as well. So brew up a cup and add these tea-infused products to your beauty stash to reap all the benefits.
A MATCHA MADE IN HEAVEN
