Korean Skincare Products for Sensitive Skin: Extracts, Modeling Packs and Lip Essences
Another minimalistic Korean skincare brand has arrived in our La Cosmetique stores this month. One Thing is looking to shake up the K-beauty scene with their minimalistic offerings.
They focus squarely on delivering the very best results for easily irritated skin at a great price. They achieve this by ensuring that they only incorporate ingredients that play a key role in improving your skin health. They also remove any unnecessary chemical based ingredients.
One Thing also actively advocates for transparency within the skincare industry and looks to help consumers make educated skincare choices. They're determined to protect and improve your skin. This really shows in the quality of their products.
These core values are also something that us at La Cosmetique care deeply about. We're proud to announce that we'll be official distributors and retailers of the One Thing brand moving forward.
Here are some of their best-sellers and the Korean skincare products that we're the most excited about.
The Centella Asiatica Extract from One Thing is one of their most popular products and for good reason. Available in both 150ml and 300ml, this toner features a Centella Asiatica extract. Its rich in amino acids and beta carotene, which have amazing soothing and anti-aging properties.
This extract also helps to purify the skin whilst calming irritation. The minimalistic formulation means that it's even suitable for sensitive skin!
Just like all of the other One Thing products, this toner is predominantly plant based and chemical-free. So you know that you'll be getting a wonderful stress free experience with this brand.
What are skincare extracts and are they good for your face?
If you haven't heard of or used extracts before, they're highly concentrated substances from a natural source. Extracts carry the essence and some of the properties of the plant or ingredient it came from.
They're particularly useful because even a few drops can have strong effects on the way a product may affect your skin. You can incorporate extracts into many different parts of your skincare routine including your moisturiser, masks and more.
They're typically suitable for sensitive skin as they have limited numbers of ingredients. This means that there's lower odds of a certain ingredient interacting poorly with sensitive skin.
Some other toner extracts available from One Thing include the:
- Extracted from Ganwha-do capillaries
- For dry and sensitive skin
- Extracted from anti-microbial Houttuynia Cordata
- For irritated skin and treats skin troubles
Can you use extracts in skincare and how?
You can find extracts in a range of skincare products and they are generally safe to use in skincare. Refer to ingredient lists and your own skin types to determine if extracts are right for you!

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein within our bodies. It plays a key role in the growth and regeneration of our skin. It essentially keeps our skin from sagging and is what gives us a plump and vibrant look. The regeneration of your skin barrier is also critical in minimising irritation and treating sensitive skin concerns.
The Collagen Modeling Pack from One Thing revitalises your skin by providing a boat load of the aforementioned collagen. It delivers this in the form of a modeling mask.
These Modeling Packs from One Thing are available in a 1kg and 7 x 30g form factor to suit your needs.
What does a modeling mask do?
Traditional masks have their rightful place in anyone's skincare routine. However they can actually draw moisture from the skin once it has dried.
In contrast, modeling masks form an occlusive barrier. This ensures there is a one-way flow of product, from the mask to your skin. That means your natural moisture barrier stays intact and it can effectively deliver moisture to your skin.
You can learn more about modeling masks here in our complete guide.
Some other modeling packs available from One Thing include the:
- Helps troubled and irritated skin
- Made with high-quality diatoms to absorb waste
- Hyaluronic acid provides additional moisture
- Soothes and keeps the skin cool
How to use One Thing Korean modeling packs?
To begin using One Thing modeling pack, you will need a few basic tools:
- A mixing bowl and spoon

How to use:
- Start by mixing the powder and liquid (or essences) together in a bowl according to the package instructions. The consistency should be smooth and easy to spread.

How often should Modeling Masks be used per week?
Modeling packs can be used once or twice a week, depending on your skin type needs. They are an excellent, intensive way to boost the health and glow of your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and vibrant.
