If you frequent TikTok‘s countless beauty tutorials, there’s little doubt you’ve come across Anua. The “top skincare brand in Korea” has amassed quite the viral following recently and is responsible for several best-sellers on Amazon—with shoppers buying as many as 100,000 units per month.

Why all the fuss? K-Beauty brands are famously at the forefront of skincare innovations, and Anua is no different. Their toners, cleansers, serums and moisturizers use well-known ingredients, among them vitamin E, niacinamide and salicylic acid, in conjunction with lesser-known-in-the-US, but popular Korean botanicals and herbs that promote glowy, glass-like skin.

We’ve written at length about various Anua products that have garnered thousands of five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers. Keep reading for the five making the biggest waves with shoppers.
