While 2019 put me through a lot of highs and lows, I got to try so many new skincare products. I even discovered some REVOLUTIONARY products that changed the game along the way! So FINALLY, here are my favorite products in all skincare categories from 2019. I hope you enjoy!
I Krave You
The time has come! I’ve been eager to try Krave Beauty since founder Liah Yoo first launched the company. Yoo is one of my OG Korean Skincare Gurus that taught me a lot of what I know.
I’ve tried a few ACWELL products–via Soko Glam–over the past couple of years, so I feel more than ready to review some of their products! ACWELL is Korean Skincare brand, that keeps sensitive skin in mind, and works to improve it while preventing any future issues, at a neutral pH of 5.5.
Korean Skincare: Jade Rollers
Facial jade rollers exploded across the Western world this past year, but a lot of people don’t really know what they do or how to use them! While these fancy rollers may be new over here, they’ve been around for ages on the other side of the world. In fact, the significance of jade dates back centuries ago.
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.
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.
Korean Skincare: Step 10. Sunscreen
The final and most important step of your Korean Skincare routine is sunscreen! You should obviously only apply this during the day. A lot of people associate SPF (sun protection factor) with beaches and the summer, but guess what? The sun shines all year ’round, so we should always be protecting our skin.
Korean Skincare: Step 9. Moisturize
A moisturizer can really make or break your skincare routine. Finding the right moisturizer is so important because it’s the difference between sealing in all your hard work, or letting it evaporate, wasting your time and money. Moisturizing is step 9 of your skincare routine during the day time, but your last step at night.
