From blueberries to goji berries, antioxidant-packed berries 🍇have been taking over our diets (or wannabe diets) ever since fitness gurus and celebs started fanning on superfoods. Just when our lives couldn’t get more berrylicious, there’s a new berry in town, and this one is just as valuable on your skin as it is in your tummy.
Crowned “King’s Berry,” the chokeberry (from the Aronia Fruit) is the #currentobsession in skincare, and for good reason. Chokeberries boast more antioxidants than other berries: 80x more anthocyanin than grapes and more catechins and tannins than green tea! These fruits also hold the power to thrive in harsh environments, lending this natural ability in skincare to strengthen and protect skin from signs of aging, irritation, and other evils.
Sold? Desperately asking where you can find King’s Berries so you can slather them all over your face? These royalties are brought to us by Korea’s wildly loved beauty brand, Mizon. Created by some of the top scientists and experts of the K-beauty industry, Mizon is all about innovative ingredients that actually work and high quality products that everyone can get their hands on. In gargantuan portions. Like, “King Kong would be proud” kind of portions. The jumbo-sized products are a little harder to find, but of course, yours truly has them in stock for you here.
True to the brand’s commitment to exceptional ingredients and Costco-like sizes, Mizon launched a lust-worthy line that knocks out 👊 its competition– the No. 1 King’s Berry line. Each product is bursting with Chokeberry Extract, comes in a jumbo size, and features really cute packaging. Thanks to the many benefits of the King’s Berry, these products can help just about any skin type.
If you have dry or combination skin, No. 1 King’s Berry Cleansing Oil is especially amazing for you.

And at a jaw-dropping 410ml size, you won’t have an excuse to skip washing up… for a very long time.
If your skin’s dry or showing signs of aging, No. 1 King’s Berry Aqua Drink Toner is like a super sized drink (500g) for your thirsty skin.

Besides the berries, Mizon also has a slew of Snail Mucin products 🐌 A K-beauty brand wouldn’t be famed for its innovative ingredients without the most wanted slime of skincare now, would it? It’s pretty easy to get over the ick factor of Snail Mucin when you consider its insanely hydrating and anti-aging powers.
This giant 120ml All in One Snail Repair Cream is packed with 92% Snail Secretion Filtrate 😲 which moisturizes skin and speeds up skin cell regeneration. Other botanical extracts also help even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, tighten pores, and boost elasticity. It’s a bestseller for a reason.

Ah, berries and snails! The failproof recipe to covetable skin. Whether you’re a K-beauty newbie who wants to give exotic berries and gooey snails a try but not feeling too risqué, or a pro who’s always in search of the next big thing, tried and true Mizon is your safe haven.
