Exciting beauty news alert! Sephora recently announced the launch of its very own K-beauty skincare line, in partnership with beauty start-up company MBX, and it's just dropped.

From the best BB creams (opens in new tab) to the slugging skincare (opens in new tab) trend, it's clear our love for Korean beauty buys isn't going anywhere any time soon. So naturally we're already very intrigued by this new line of skincare products.

OTZI (pronounced oat-zee) describes itself as a "skincare community" rather than a brand. Aimed at the Gen Z consumer, its mission is “undefining what it means to have ‘perfect’ skin by embracing the things that make us special and not trying to pretend they don’t exist.” Sounds pretty good to us.

According to the brand's Instagram account, the name OTZI is a rearrangement of the Korean word "우리", which translates to "us". A recent post reads, “as a toast to our love of community and acceptance, we chose a brand name that would also give a nod to our Korean roots.”

Die-hard Sephora fans will of course remember that this isn't the first time the beauty giant has teamed up with MBX. The companies first collaborated back in 2018 on a K-beauty make-up line, Kaja, which comprises colorful and fun products designed to suit all skin tones. 

What are the OTZI skincare products?

The brand has launched with a capsule collection of five products are priced between $25 and $35: makeup removing cleanser, vitamin c serum (opens in new tab), exfoliating serum, hydrating moisturizer and pore treatment mask.
