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!
- Innisfree It’s Real Facial Mask Sheets 15 pcs Set $16.68
- TONYMOLY Intense Care Snail Hydro Gel Mask 5pcs Set $16.98
- 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.
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!
- Heimish All Clean Balm $19
- Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk$14.97
- Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule Serum $26.80
- MIZON Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule Cream $12.39
- 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.
