Soko Glam recently had a great sale on all Dear, Klairs products, so I thought I’d do a review on the brand and the products I purchased. Klairs is a popular K-Beauty brand that lives by the motto, “Simple but enough.”
All Eyes On: Vitamin C
I feel like I’m constantly talking about vitamin C, and that’s because I really can’t get enough of it! Vitamin C is important for us to maintain our health and keep illness away. That’s why you need to get your citrus fruits in, but did you know that it can do amazing things for your skin when incorporated into your skincare routine?
Oh pustules, how I loathe thee! They are categorized as inflammatory pimples. A pustule occurs when the bacteria from the dead skin cells and oils in your pores attract other strains of bacteria.
Mario Badescu is a popular skincare brand that dates back to the 1960s. The brand claims to be simple, gentle, and effective–from their minimalist packaging, to their product formulations that get the job done. The brand is also cruelty-free.
All Eyes on: Snail Mucin
It’s been long enough. Today we are finally getting into snail mucin! Snail mucin was the first Korean Skincare Ingredient I learned about. I know, I know, it sounds really gross. But once you learn just how magical these little mollusks are, you won’t turn back.
I recently became a brand ambassador for Follain, and I’m so excited to share my review of their essentials kit! Follain is a clean beauty retailer that creates their own products, and curates high-performing, 100% non-toxic products.
Korean Skincare: Step 7. Sheet Masks
Sheet masks are the most iconic part of the Korean Skincare routine. They have been blowing up across the world, but Korea did it first. What’s so great about sheet masks, and do they even do anything?
Korean Skincare: Step 6. Serums and Ampoules
The serum and ampoule stage is a place where you get to cocktail your routine, and target specific concerns. Whether you’re looking for a boost in hydration, preventing or improving wrinkles, or fading hyperpigmentation, there is a serum out there for you.
Korean Skincare: Step 5. Essence
The essence step is really what makes a Korean Skincare routine. Essence has recently popped up in western skincare conversations, so it might be hard for some to comprehend exactly what it is. Essences are not as thin as toners, but they’re not as thick as serums either.
All Eyes on: Rice
Rice, rice baby! This week I want to give all my love to rice as a skincare ingredient. Many East Asian countries are known for using fermented rice water for centuries. It’s an ingredient that is bountiful and simple to use.
