Korean Beauty: skincare

Hello, hello, hello! If you haven’t heard the raving reviews on Korean skincare, then let me be the first to introduce you to a culture that is OBSESSED with their skin & in turn has the most incredible products on the market to give you glowing, healthy & youthful looking skin! I have heard amazing things about so many Korean brands & as if their darling packaging wasn’t enough their ingredients are impeccable; hydrating, effective & pure.

I was really intimidated by the labels (I feared I couldn’t read) & AAAAALLLLLL the steps (10 steps process for morning & evening :/), but after further research I know now why Koreans have flawless skin. I want to share with you what I’ve learned & why you don’t have to be intimidated by SoKo beauty!!

First things first: get educated! There are so many products out there that it is important to find a good, trusted resource to get your information from. For that reason I sought out the website sokoglam.com & picked up the book “The Little Book of Skin Care” by Charlotte Cho. Both resources have been incredibly informative & enlightening to directing me to the right products for my skin type & providing vital information on the why & how of each product. I also really love following Korean bloggers on YouTube!! Videos are super comprehensive & a lot of times you can see the product in action. I love watching MeejMuse & thus far her recommendations have been really on point!

Once I knew what I wanted in my new regimen I started a running list on Amazon to take advantage of the prime shipping & from what I found the prices were the lowest! Here is what I picked up!!

Sheet masks: these babies are a staple in the Korean beauty routine! They are super hydrating & allow your skin the time it needs to really soak up the product & have a positive effect on your skin. I love using these at night after cleansing while I am catching up on The Bachelorette because they are so simple to use!

  1. Innisfree It’s Real Facial Mask Sheets 15 pcs Set $16.68
  2. TONYMOLY Intense Care Snail Hydro Gel Mask 5pcs Set $16.98
  3. Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Mask Pack, 0.88 Ounce $21.49

Masks: These are messier, but I love the results from both of these masks I picked up. One is a wash off mask & one you leave on overnight & let it absorb into your skin! Both are hydrating & leave my skin feeling supple & fresh.

  1. Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off Exfoliator $7.32
  2. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask $23.25

Skincare: I knew I wanted to try an oil cleansing balm, a great sunscreen, a serum for night & day & a brightening moisturizer. After reading all the reviews this is what I came away with & I haven’t regretted a single thing!

  1. Heimish All Clean Balm $19
  2. Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk$14.97
  3. Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule Serum $26.80
  4. MIZON Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule Cream $12.39
  5. banila co White Wedding Dream Cream $24.78

This will certainly not be the last of my SoKo beauty purchases, so be sure you follow along on Periscope & Instagram for more skincare & makeup tips, tricks & product reviews!! I am in love with everything so far & I cannot wait to see how amazing my skin looks after extended usage.

Have you used these products? Am I missing anything incredible from this list?? Let me know if the comments below <3

TANNING ROUND-UP: BEST OF

You guys have been asking FOREVER for me to give you my tanning recommendations & the day has finally arrived! I am a sunless tanner addict & I hope you love these products as much as I do!!3

First up – best overall sunless tanner! This titles goes to VersaSpa Beyond Bronze ‘sunless bronzing mist’ for so many reasons, but let me list a few here:

  • flawless application – this is an aerosol that works even if you hold it upside down, so reaching to the backs of your legs & your neck is easy.as.pie! Its even easier with the mitt that they sell which is identical to the ever-so-popular Ultamitt, but half the price!! Snag it HERE!2
  • true color – although this product does develop over time, you get instant color so that you can see where the product is going on your skin & avoid streaks.
  • no smell – one of the biggest complaints I hear people having about sunless tanner, is that they stink after they use it. With VersaSpa Beyond Bronze ‘sunless bronzing mist’ you will not have that problem!!1

This product is a bit of an investment for $37, but I have used mine almost everyday for 6-months & I haven’t run out yet! I cannot rave about this stuff enough & I hope that you love it too!

FAKE THE PERFECT SALON BLOW-OUT

I discovered a curling iron that has changed my life & I cannot wait to share with you guys! It gives so easy volume while still looking bouncy & luxe!!

I prepped my hair with my favorite dry shampoo from R+Co to soak up any oils from working out this morning. Then sprayed my hair with Sebastian ‘Trilliant’ heat protectant to ensure that my hair stays soft, shiny & healthy!

To achieve this look I used the Hot Tools 2″ curling iron which I grabbed off Amazon for $29 – it is a serious game changer for every length & style of hair to achieve the look of freshly-blown-out locks!

Check out how I use this curling iron on my periscope!!

After styling I applied this Sexy Hair ‘Smooth & Seal’ to bang out frizz & add shine to my look!

Hope you guys learn to love these products as much as I do!! xo – Kayti
