Beautytap’s Oscars Moment


Beautytap, the premier destination for Korean beauty products, unveiled its luxury skincare line, AZN Labs, at the Annual Pre-Oscar Luxury Lounge by GBK Productions in Beverly Hills, just a week before the line debuted at South Coast Plaza. On display at the gifting suite were the white and rose-gold-colored bottles of AZN Labs’ Afterglow Ampoule, a facial serum formulated to reverse signs of aging and prevent future damage using J-Beauty (Japanese  beauty) and K-Beauty (Korean Beauty) ingredients. AZN Labs was founded by Beautytap‘s CEO, James Sun. 


The Afterglow Ampoule was included in gift bags given to attendees. More than 50 Academy Award nominees and past winners visited the lounge, including Bradley CooperPeter Farrelly (who won for Best Film and Screenplay) and several of his “Green Book” cast including Mahershala Ali (who won for Best Supporting Actor), Spike Lee (three-time nominee for Best Picture, Director and winner for Best Screenplay) and many more. 


“We are very particular about the brands that we partner with to participate in our gifting lounges and individually invite brands with products that we know everyone will love,” said Gavin Keilly, CEO and founder of GBK Productions.  “Because of (Afterglow Ampoule’s) unique and innovative formula, we knew we had to extend an invitation to James Sun and Beautytap.”



Afterglow Ampoule aims to help reverse age-related dryness, dark spots, dullness, and loss of elasticity and protect against harmful radicals and pollutants while adding a dewy warm glow to the skin. 


Using traditional floral ingredients in K-beauty products, and the J-Beauty ingredient, Astaxanthin (AX), a super antioxidant with 6,000 times more antioxidant activity than Vitamin C, the serum is designed to boost cell rejuvenation, which leads to a more even skin tone. It has a light and fresh scent.


“It’s an honor to have been the first-ever Asian beauty brand selected for this prestigious pre-Oscars event,” said Sun, creator of AZN Labs. “It’s even more of an honor to be recognized for our one-of-a-kind formula. We took our time and hand-selected the best and highest quality J-beauty and K-beauty ingredients, creating a miracle blend that achieves immediate results and in a single serum.”




Afterglow Ampoule is the first of many releases from AZN Labs, and is available beginning March at Beautytap, located on Level 1, Din Tai Fung Wing.
