The Skin Balancing Duo is the next two steps of the classic Korean Skincare Routine–toner and essence. I’ve been trying them out since the New Year, as it was a Christmas gift from Mr. SQ, so I’ve got some tea to spill skinthusiasts! Let’s imbibe, shall we?
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.
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.”
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?
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
I couldn’t think of a better product review to start the year with, than this moisturizing Vita Duo Cream. This moisturizer is a collaboration by Neogen and Joan Kim! If you don’t know who Joan Kim is, can you really call yourself a skinthusiast?
