Real Barrier Three-Calming Complex

ATOPALM Real Barrier is known and loved for its wide range of deeply moisturizing and restorative products. But did you know that what really sets Real Barrier apart is its Three-Calming Complex?

Real Barrier Three-Calming Complex is an expertly balanced blend of (you guessed it) three ingredients chosen for their soothing, nourishing, healing, and moisturizing qualities.

Used alongside MLE, the Three-Calming Complex is able to nourish and restore skin like nothing else. Here’s a look at all three and why they were chosen as part of this exclusive blend:

  • Panthenol, also known as provitamin B5 is an efficient moisturizer that is especially beneficial because of its ability to penetrate the top layer of skin. It also boosts wound healing, which makes it an excellent choice for those with painful skin conditions like chronic acneand eczema.
  • Allantoin is a plant-sourced ingredient used primarily for its moisturizing and soothing benefits, though it has other beneficial qualities like boosting the water content of cellsincreasing skin smoothness, and promoting wound healing. These actions combined with its known gentleness make allantoin the perfect choice for ATOPALM skin care.
  • Madecassoside, also known as Gota Kola, is a healing ingredient derived from the plant Centella asiatica, which has been used in medicinal compounds for over 2,000 years. It provides proven skin-healing and anti-aging benefits with actions that include regulating inflammation, increasing collagen production, and slowing the breakdown of the skin’s framework.

While all ATOPALM products boast skin restoration thanks to MLE, the Three-Calming Complex truly takes this mentality to another level. Shop Real Barrier now to see what the Three-Calming Complex can do for your skin.


Choosing the Best Face Moisturizer

Choosing your favorite ATOPALM moisturizer is like trying to choose your favorite ice cream flavor — they’re all fantastic for different reasons! As a brand known for deeply moisturizing creams, finding the best ATOPALM face cream for you can seem like an undertaking.

To make the decision a little easier, here’s a glimpse at our top three best-selling Korean beauty moisturizers. Each one features skin-saving MLE, so take a peek at each product’s unique qualities to find the best fit for you.

Intensive Moisturizing Cream is our flagship moisturizer — the product that started it all. With a rich dose of MLE and an ultra gentle formulation, it’s the perfect introduction to the ATOPALM brand. It’s also our most-recommended product for use on children (it was, after all, formulated by our founder for his own sons) and is as effective on the body as it is on the face.

We recommend it for: someone looking for a versatile cream that can be used on the whole family, or someone who needs a cream that will work for both face and body care.

Real Barrier Extreme Cream provides moisture and protection with MLE while also targeting visible signs of aging with Idealift, a firmness-booster. Extreme Cream is an excellent “all-in-one” cream with incredible moisture benefits, skin-soothers, and anti-aging skin care actions.

We recommend it for: dry, sensitive skin types with concerns about skin aging, or those who are looking to prevent prematurely aging skin.

Real Barrier Intense Moisture Cream also features MLE, as well as a rich dose of hyaluronic acid, which allows it to boast an amazing 48-hour hydrating skin barrier. It makes a great daily face cream for dry skin types, as well as the perfect night cream for anyone looking to boost their natural radiance.

We recommend it for: very dry skin types that need extra hydration for all-day comfort, or normal to oily skin types looking for a restorative night cream.

Nighttime Skin Care Made Easy…and Affordable!

Evening skin care: we know that it’s usually the last thing you want to do.  After a long day of work, errands, and obligations, we all just want to binge a few episodes of our current show and fall asleep.

But what happens to your skin when you neglect it every night? The daily load of makeup, external debris, and environmental aggressors pile up. They worsen skin conditions like acne and rosacea, and cause skin to become even more dehydrated and dull than before. You awake looking haggard, and skin begins to age prematurely.

Do yourself (and your skin) a favor by spending 10 minutes each night showing your skin how much you appreciate the job its doing! We’ve made it easier than ever by putting together a Real Barrier nighttime regimen that takes the guesswork out and saves you a bundle. Featuring some of our most popular Real Barrier products, this nighttime routine makes evening skin care as easy as 1, 2, 3…4, 5!

The Real Barrier Nighttime Routine includes:

These five simple products feature everything skin needs to replenish and repair itself while you rest.

Nighttime is when the skin goes into overdrive to exfoliate dead skin, repair damage, heal blemishes, and rebuild collagen and elastin. These five products work to remove anything that would get in the way of that, while assisting your skin in its natural functions.

If you find that you’re too tired to remove makeup and wash your face before bed, try pushing your evening routine up to an earlier time. If you take 10 minutes to get ready for bed at 8:00, you’ll save your skin and get to slide into bed as soon as you’re sleepy. It’s the best of both worlds!

Guest Review: Real Barrier Kits

ATOPALM Real Barrier Korean beauty kits made a splash when they were first introduced last year. Containing one full size products and multiple mid-size products, these kits are a great way to acquaint yourself with many Real Barrier products at once without committing to full size prices!

You’ll notice that two of the kits — Extreme Cream Kit and Eye Contour Cream Kit — feature the same three products. The difference lies in which product is your full size, and which two are the mid-size versions.

Here’s a look at our kits provided by a guest blogger! After getting to experience each kit, she has first-hand knowledge, tips, and ideas for using these kits as part of your Korean skin care routine.

As someone who had only experienced the classic ATOPALM MLE products, I was so excited to try the Real Barrier line and feel the differences of the formulations.

While Real Barrier still uses the Multi-Lamellar Emulsion that made ATOPALM famous, Real Barrier takes moisturization a step further with hyaluronic acid, plus a three-calming complex comprised of allantoin, madecassoside, and panthenol helps combat sensitivity and irritation.

As mentioned above, two of the Real Barrier kits actually feature the same three products, but I found that they are quite different when it comes down to use. As you’ll soon see, one focuses on the overall face, while the other targets the eye and lip areas.

But why am I trying to explain when I could just tell you about my experience?

The first kit I opened was the Real Barrier Cica Cream Kit.  It combines four great formulas, and is intended for very sensitive, compromised, or acne-prone skin. The Cica Cream Kit contains:

  • Cicarelief Cream
  • Soothing Ampoule Mask
  • Intense Moisture Cream
  • Eye Contour Cream


The star ingredient in this kit is calamine, an ingredient that has been used for ages to treat everything from itching to burns and more. It’s exceedingly soothing and anti-inflammatory, which is what makes it so great for use on acne breakouts. Combine the healing and comforting benefits of calamine with the hydration and further calming actions from Real Barrier’s base ingredients, and you have a recipe for true skin change.

When using the Cicarelief Cream, I found that I was seeing healing in areas I didn’t even know were damaged. My skin is combination normal/dry (I know, join the club) but overall it stays relatively clear and calm. However, as I used Cicarelief Cream, I saw dryish patches become smooth and healthy, and I was able to nip a couple blemishes in the bud before they turned nastier.

For me, Cicarelief Cream makes the perfect blemish spot treatment, or maybe an overall face cream if I find myself facing major skin changes or sensitivity, like my once-yearly sunburn I never seem to be able to avoid.

The mid-size products in this kit are the mask, Intense Moisture Cream, and an eye cream. The Eye Contour Cream whet my appetite for the full-size Eye Contour Cream Kit which I had yet to enjoy (more on that below), and the Intense Moisture Cream is actually my perfect day moisturizer, but the product I got most excited about was the Soothing Ampoule Mask.

When I received this kit, the mask was actually exclusive to the Cicarelief Cream Kit, but it has just been released on the website in a 5-pack! This sheet mask is purifying (with charcoal!), moisturizing, and revitalizing. My skin absolutely glowed after using it, and I knew I had to get my hands on it again. Well thankfully it’s easy to do so now that it’s available on the site!

I recommended Cica Cream Kit to anyone with acne-prone skin, or skin that’s prone to redness, itching, or stinging. It’s a very handy kit to have on hand in case of acne breakouts, as both the Cicarelief Cream and Soothing Ampoule Mask provide anti-acne actions, though I will warn you that you’ll get hooked on the mask and end up ordering more! (So you should just do that in the first place.)


The next kit I tried was the Extreme Cream Kit which highlights three Real Barrier formulas:

  • Extreme Cream
  • Essence Mist
  • Eye Contour Cream



By now I already knew and loved the Eye Contour Cream, so I was happy to see that guy again, but the Extreme Cream and Essence Mist were both new to me.

Extreme Cream says it all in the name. This was the richest, most lush face moisturizer I have ever used. It felt like a spa treatment, but was shockingly not greasy at all after application.

Now, I have to stop here and just shout this from the rooftops — MLE WORKS WONDERS. Like I said before, I have pretty low maintenance skin, but I had no idea how compromised my skin actually was until I saw the difference MLE made.

With Extreme Cream, my skin became softer, smoother, and more radiant. If you can believe it, my skin actually looks plumper. I think the best way to explain it is that my whole face looks and feels more youthful, in that it has a healthy glow and texture.

For my normal to dry skin, Extreme Cream is the perfect night cream, which is what I used it for. Since I had the opportunity to also try Intense Moisture Cream in the Cica Cream Kit, I found that my perfect regimen used Intense Moisture during the day, and Extreme Cream at night. However, either formula can be used for either day or night depending on your skin.

Lastly, I honestly didn’t expect to use Moisture Mist all that much since I don’t usually feel parched during the day, but that little spray became my best friend! I kept it in my purse and got into the habit of spritzing my skin around lunch time, and once I did a little spray break when I was feeling particularly stressed. My skin felt instantly refreshed, which somehow made me feel refreshed. Placebo? Maybe, but who cares?


Last but certainly not least, there was the Eye Contour Cream Kit, which as mentioned before contains the same three products as above, but with a full size Eye Contour Cream. In short, the lineup is:

  • Eye Contour Cream
  • Extreme Cream
  • Essence Mist

The unique thing about Eye Contour Cream is that it can also be used around the lips. ATOPALM calls these areas triangle zones, and says they are more prone to damage and visible signs of damage, which I personally have found to be true. The eye area in particular is usually one of the first places to show signs of aging which, frankly, I’m not ready for.

Upon application, I absolutely saw a difference in my eye area. It was like the cream brightened my eyes and made me look well-rested. I am a mom to three. I am not well-rested. But this cream made me look like it!

I also love how well it moisturized around my lips. I have never smoked so I don’t have a lot of lines or discoloration in that area, but I have noticed that it gets extra dry, especially in winter. Applying Eye Contour Cream felt like I was applying a balm that was created especially for that area, and I didn’t look like I had over-applied Chapstick around my lips.

Getting extras of Extreme Cream and Essence Mist was a huge bonus (especially so I don’t run out of Essence Mist too quickly!) and I was happy to have a full size of the Eye Contour Cream which now has a permanent place in my daily Korean beauty regimen.

I am so pleased that I was able to experience the Real Barrier line in this way and learn more about how these products could work for me! Coming from an understanding that ATOPALM specializes in dry and sensitive skin, I didn’t realize that their formulas would work so well for my normal to dry combo skin, but you can now call me a believer.

ATOPALM Sheet Masks Are Here!

It’s the new year’s miracle you’ve been waiting for: ATOPALM sheet masks are here! These K-beauty must-haves are infused with everything your skin needs, so what are you waiting for? Pick your favorite and get going!

Our sheet masks are infused with deeply moisturizing, soothing, and revitalizing ingredients. As you can expect from ATOPALM, our mask formulas feature Multi-Lamellar Emulsion and are designed with dry, sensitive skin in mind, but can be used on any skin type to support the skin’s barrier function.

Real Barrier Extreme Cream Mask uses panthenol, madecassoside, and allantoin to moisturize and calm irritated skin.

Dual ceramides and hyaluronic acid combine to provide long-lasting hydration to the skin while vitamin E conditions skin and provides anti-aging antioxidant protection against external damage. After use, the skin feels moisturized, comforted, and even more elastic!

Real Barrier Aqua Soothing Ampoule Mask is a two-step mask treatment. Like Extreme Cream Mask, this mask is likewise infused with panthenol, madecassoside, allantoin, and hyaluronic acid for their deeply hydrating and comforting benefits.

Aqua Soothing Ampoule Mask then differs itself from Extreme Cream Mask with enriched bamboo charcoal to purify skin that’s been exposed to pollutants or is prone to acne breakouts. After the sheet mask is applied, a concentrated ampoule cream is used to deeply moisturize skin, leaving the face fully hydrated, purified, and soothed.

You can choose one mask to use religiously, or you can switch back and forth depending on your skin’s changing needs. Regardless of which sheet mask you choose, you can be confident that the care you’re getting is on par with the rest of ATOPALM’s best-selling skin care formulas.
