SanDaWha Liposome Skin Softener — I like to use multiple hydrating toners (currently I’m also using Klairs Supple Preparation & I’m From Rice Toner) but if I only have time for one, I always reach for the SanDaWha!
COSRX Snail 96 Essence & Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion — These may not be the most exciting products, but they work REALLY well. And my skin loves them even when it’s irritated and can’t deal with most products, so I always like to have them around.
LOL I just went on a toner spree. I ordered the sandawha skin softener since it was a beauty buy. I also just got the klairs toner and the etude house moistful collagen. My poor skin is totally dry and dehydrated. And I bought the cosrx snail.
I adore the Hada Labo lotion and their cleansing oils! May not be super exciting but my skin loves them.
Hi lissakelley! Welcome to the K-beauty rabbit hole! 🙂 What’s the sunscreen that pushed you over the cliff? I honestly can’t remember the one thing that got me into K-beauty, but I’d say it was a toss-up between skincare that made even my breakouts look better, cushion compacts that actually made my skin glow, eyeliners that really don’t smudge, and yes, sunscreens that are almost a pleasure to wear!
I tried A’Pieu Natural Daily and Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy Finish (face). I was stunned at the feel of both. Not sticky or white cast. Dried like a dream. Then I bought Biore and Nivea and was blown away. (I know. technically not K but still so good!) Lately I am back to the Etude House since it goes so wonderful under my bb cream. I also now use A’Pieu Pure Block Aqua Sun Gel. Makes wearing sun screen totally tolerable.
I haven’t tried the cushion compacts yet. Which ones do you like?
Aren’t those sunscreens amazing? I’ve tried the Japanese sunscreens and they work amazingly, but since I try to avoid alcohol in my skincare (not in my wine glass though, haha), I’ve been loooooving the Earth’s Recipe Sun Gel. I don’t know how they make it feel so watery and light and refreshing without any alcohol, but I’m addicted.
For cushion compacts, my faves are Romand Innerlighting Cushion (omg so good) and Klavuu Urban Pearlsation Cushion and of course the Sulwhasoo Brightening Cushion. I turned my sisters-in-law into Klavuu cushion addicts when we visited their store in Seoul, hahaha.
Same! I never knew that sunscreen could feel so invisible on my skin with such high SPFs and protection. Even more so, K-beauty products work so quickly and so well compared to American products. I don’t have to wait months until my pores start to look smaller or my skin feels smoother.
