Glow Recipe, Watermelon Glow

Glow Recipe is a K-Beauty brand that is run by two women, Christine Chang and Sarah Lee. Their goal is to curate K-Beauty products that are natural and gentle for the skin, as well as create their own products. I’m sure you’ve seen their trendy packaging all over social media, I know I have!

Korean Skincare : Step 8. Eye Cream

Eye scream, you scream, we all scream for eye cream! I didn’t use eye cream until I was introduced to Korean Skincare. Actually, I always thought it was a luxury skincare item that was a waste of money.

All Eyes on: Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is one of those classic ingredients that just works. It’s on par with green tea, rose water, and tea tree to me. Aloe vera is known for being healing, soothing, and moisturizing. Someone who has irritated skin, redness, sunburn, or acne-prone skin will benefit from using products with this ingredient.

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.

Acne: Whiteheads

Whiteheads are one of the most common types of pimples. They are categorized as non-inflammatory comedones. This just means that they are clogged hair follicles, and the surrounding skin is not raised or red.

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.

And Then, I Met You

I have been dying to share this product review with everyone! One amazing thing to come out of 2018 was the Then I Met You skincare line by Charlotte Cho. Charlotte Cho is a licensed esthetician.

Korean Skincare: Step 4. Tone

Toning is a step in skincare that people often ignore, but it does have a purpose. A good toner will balance your pH level after you double cleanse, and clean your skin even further. You’d be surprised at the dirt that might come off, even after a double cleanse.
