Lee agrees that micro-spicules will be big this year, noting the "clinical trend" making waves in Korean skin care lately. "It's all about preventing aging in a very new approach," she says, citing Sephora newbie brand Private Doctor as an example of this trend. Of the line's Minus Serum, she says, "It has a really interesting blend of ingredients, including micro-tingling spicules, which help to create pathways into the skin to aid penetration of the formula. It also has sodium dexoycholate, which is an active that's been used in in-office slimming procedures and we've never seen it used in skin care before."
