1025 Dokdo or Birch Juice: Get to know Round Lab's most popular products
Picture a place where the sea, wind and mountains meet and sacred ingredients can be found. A place where fresh air blows and pristine water runs deep. Established in 2017, Round Lab, a clean skincare company, brought the rugged wonders of the Korean Peninsula to life with a range of clean, cruelty-free skincare products designed to capture the vibrancy and purity of the landscape.
Round Lab has steadily grown since with a wide range of natural skincare products but today we are going to breakdown the differences between two of Round Lab’s most popular skincare lines: 1025 Dokdo Line and Birch Juice Moisturizing Line. Through explaining the crucial differences between them, hopefully you’ll get to know which is right for your skin type, as well as learn a little more about the products you’ve seen people go crazy for online (yes, there have been a few!)
Birch Juice Moisturizing Line
Formulated with Birch Tree Sap from Inje and Hyaluronic Acid, this hydrating, cooling and soothing skincare line treats dehydration and dryness. Haven’t heard of Birch Sap in skincare before? You’re going to want to make it part of your routine STAT! Naturally moisturizing, it contains a cocktail of ingredients that the skin naturally creates to stay hydrated including Amino Acids, Lactic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid. In addition, it does a superb job of reducing inflammation and eliminating toxins to clear and brighten the skin. Now let’s get into the products behind the Birch Juice Moisturizing Line.
Round Lab Birch Juice Sunscreen
First up, we have to mention Round Lab Birch Juice Sunscreen. Since its release in 2020, it has picked up no less than six beauty awards and it is undoubtedly one of the brand’s most popular products. In fact, Round Lab Sunscreen has clocked up 1.8 million views on Tiktok with rave reviews pouring in from fans around the world.
So what’s behind all the hype? That all comes down to its lightweight, essence-type formula which hydrates and protects the skin whilst leaving no white-cast. As such, its a great sunscreen for wearing underneath make-up since its lotion-like, weightless texture means it doesn't pill. Another reason that this product has gained such a cult following comes down to its formulation. Round Lab sunscreen ingredients contain a mix of antioxidants and super botanicals that are great for sensitive skin. Packed with healing and soothing properties, Birch Juice, Purslane Extract, Licorice Root Derivative and Chamomile Oil work together to reduce redness and calm inflammation caused by sun exposure.
Fight dehydration with Birch Juice Moisturizing Line
If you are someone who suffers with dry skin then the Birch Juice Moisturizing Line products can be the foundation of a really beneficial routine. Start with Round Lab Birch Juice Moisturizing Cleanser. This soft, gel-type cleanser has been formulated with a low pH level to regulate balance whilst providing maximum moisture and hydration to the skin. Follow up the Round Lab Birch Juice Moisturizing Toner which contains both Hyaluronic Acid and Panthenol to hydrate the skin whilst protecting the skin’s moisture barrier. Finally Birch Round Lab Juice Moisturizing Cream does everything we like a moisturizer to do. Simple but light and enriched with Vita Hyaluronic Acid and minerals, it delivers a powerful boost of hydration to revitalize and protect the skin without clogging pores.
Round Lab 1025 Dokdo Line
Next up, let’s talk about Round Lab 1025 Dokdo Line. This line is designed for sensitive, delicate and irritation-prone skin. Each product contains deep sea water from Ulleungdo Island in South Korea. What makes this water so special you might ask? Formed by volcanic activity, it runs 13,000ft deep and is exceptionally clean and rich in minerals.
1025 Dokdo Toner
Without a doubt, this product is the standout star of 1020 Dokdo Line and it’s not hard to see why. Round Lab Dokdo Toner ingredients include Ulleungdo Deep Sea Water, Glyerin, Seaweed Extract, Panthenol and Allantoin which work to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells whilst hydrating the skin. The result? Ultra-clear, smooth and soft skin. If you’re wondering what is the best way to incorporate Round Lab 1025 Dokdo Toner into your routine, we’d have to say sandwiching it between the 1025 Dokdo Cleanser and 1025 Dokdo Lotion will guarantee the best results.
Soothe sensitive skin with Round Lab 1025 Dokdo Line
Gentle and formulated with a whopping 74 types of natural minerals, Round Lab Dokdo Cleanser can be used every day and helps to remove ultra-fine particles and residue whilst supporting and strengthening the skin barrier. If you ever find your skin to be dry and tight after cleansing, this is a great option for you since it retains the optimal moisture balance in the skin to leave a hydrating, fresh finish.
Follow up your toning step with Round Lab 1025 Dokdo Lotion. Enriched with deep seawater, this lightweight lotion absorbs quickly and provides lasting hydration to leave skin smooth, plump and firm. If you’re someone who finds certain creams too heavy on your skin, or you’re looking for a summer moisturizer that won’t leave your skin looking greasy, this lightweight lotion is perfect.
Main Differences between Round Lab Birch Juice and 1025 Dokdo Lines
Put simply, the main difference between Round Lab Birch Juice and Round Lab 1025 Dokdo lines comes down to your skin type. If you struggle with dehydration and dryness, your skin will benefit most from Round Lab Birch Juice Moisturizing Line where Birch Sap and Hyaluronic Acid work together to moisturize and hydrate the skin. Round Lab 1025 Dokdo products on the other hand are specifically designed for sensitive, delicate skin. Packed with minerals and ultra-clean sea water, you won’t find any harsh chemicals here so if you’re someone who worries about breakouts when trying new products, you can be confident that the products in this line are free from complex ingredients that cause unnecessary stress on your skin.
