2017 was definitely the year when I became obsessed with Korean skincare. I have to admit I was totally overwhelmed with all the steps of Korean skincare routine but after doing a lot of research it wasn’t that hard to follow. It really did wonders for my skin.
I’m always changing products depending on my skin condition and my skin has been on the sensitive side recently. After trying many different products, I have found a skincare routine that seems to work well with my now sensitive skin..
So, here are my go-to products that saved my skin, listed in the order I use them. I highly recommend all of them!
To remove eye makeup at night, I use The Faceshop Rice Water Bright Lip & Eye Remover. It removes the most stubborn waterproof mascara with ease. It does not irritate my eyes. It’s very gentle and removes eye makeup perfectly. It’s really nice to use!
I have four facial cleansers that I rotate through, but my current favorite is BENTON Honest Cleansing Foam. After a long day or workout, it’s so soothing to use. It’s also creamy, which leaves my skin so fresh and soft after I wash it. It’s super refreshing and probably the most gentle cleanser that I have tried!
After cleansing my face, I use Pyungkang Yul Essence Toner. This is one of my favorite toners at the moment as my skin has been super dehydrated and sensitive. My skin became a lot drier due to constant traveling. This one is just right and so refreshing! It’s really soothing to use and very moisturizing.
Essence is one of my favorite steps as my skin easily gets dull. I really like Benton Fermentation Essence, having this in my routine feels like I’m getting all the nourishment my skin needs. I dispense the Essence in my palms directly and apply it to my skin. I’ve definitely noticed a difference since I started using this product! It helps brighten my skin and gradually gets rid of dark spots.
I don’t find that this is a completely necessary step in your skincare routine but it’s a great product to have if you suffer from dehydrated skin and dull complexion. Anyway, my skin gets dry very easily, so I added Thank You Farmer True Water Deep Serum in my routine. It has infused my skin with hydration and really gives my skin that dewy glow I love. My skin feels nourished and youthful.
My go-to moisturizer is Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream. I suffer from allergic reactions and this is the only moisturizer that calm my face. I have been swearing by this product, your skin will stay hydrated for 24 hours. I love using this in the morning and at night. It’s super light!
Another product I swear by is Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream (reviewed here). This is the final step in my skincare routine every morning. This is definitely my favorite sunscreen and It works really well with my sensitive skin. My skin is spot-prone, so UV protection is a must! One of my new year resolutions is to wear sunscreen every day of the year.
I did not include eye cream because my eyes recently tend to be really sensitive. I really like Khiel’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream.
All these are definitely worth sharing to you guys.
