NECESSITIES: Skincare the Korean Way
NECESSITIES: Skincare the Korean Way
I was asked on Twitter to do product reviews regarding my Korean skincare, so I was thinking, “Hey, why not put it on Cherie as well?”. Not all of my followers use Cherie and not a lot of people know me on Cherie, but hopefully if you come across this somehow, you can take something away from this post. Because I have so many products I’m going to do this in waves: - Necessities - Acne Gods - Exfoliators - Cleansers - Lip Care - Highschool Carry Ons - The God of All Serums - Face Masks This round is Necessities! I will be going over the products I use on a daily basis without fail. Even if I wake up a few minutes late, I can get this simple routine done in about 5-7 minutes. Super easy right? I am going to do this in order that I use them. First is Soo'AE - HEMP DREAMS CLEANSING OIL . This is my first step after makeup removal. I don’t normally use a lot of makeup or any makeup for that matter, so I can usually go straight to an oil cleanser. A good oil cleanser should be deep cleansing and hydrating, they should be essentially melting all the makeup and nasty that makeup remover doesn’t get. SooAe, an Korean-American skincare brand has released this cleansing oil which uses Hemp seed oil in order to do a deep cleaning and hydrate at the same time. All I do is take a pump of this, massage it into my face, then massage in some warm water. The cleansing oil should turn a milky white once the water is introduced. Following an oil cleanser, I ALWAYS have to go in with another non-oil based cleanser. I like foam cleansers because they tend to be water based and they are really light and airy. NATURE REPUBLIC - Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser is perfect for what I need. As I have normal skin type (thank you 엄마 mom and 아빠 dad!!), I am all about hydrating and protecting. The aloe very has a soothing effect and most definitely leaves my skin nice and restored by the end. This cleanser also doesn’t leave any makeup or nasty in your pores. On a good day, I would do a triple cleanse and follow up with a pore cleansing foam or my weekly exfoliating cleanser, but this is bare necessities. That being said, following my double cleansing method, I follow up with LANEIGE - Essential Power Skin Toner for Normal to Dry Skin . Anyone who knows me knows I swear my entire life by Laneige. The reason is because of their HUGE selection of water based skincare. The Essential Power Skin Toner is super refreshing and acts as a third cleanser while also replenishing moisture. Keyword here is MOISTURE!!! Most toners tend to dry out the skin, but Laneige doesn’t disappoint and hydrates like no other. Of course, following any good toner should be an essence. I use LANEIGE - Water Bank Hydro Essence . It not only boosts hydration, but it locks in any moisture in your skin and prepares your skin to absorb any serums, essential oils, or face mask/packs that you use after. Even if you don’t use oils, serums, masks, etc. using essence before eye cream and even simple moisturizer will prepare your skin for an ultra hydration party. Normally, I would use serums and a face mask/pack, but since the clock is ticking before I have to leave the house, I’m going to skip straight to eye cream. Eye cream is NOT ONLY FOR AGING ADULTS! Eye cream/gels are used to treat and maintain the skin around our eyes. The skin around our eyes are the weakest, thinnest, and most sensitive skin on our bodies, so we need to take really really good care of it. Another product of LANEIGE - Water Bank Eye Gel . I was born with the typical Asian eyes which are on the smaller side, so when I am tired and my eyes are a bit swollen, my eyes look 10x smaller. Not the prettiest thing to look at. This eye gel is not only light and hydrating, but it also has a cooling effect which wakes me up a bit. Following this, I use the LANEIGE - Water Bank Hydrating Gel . Since I moved from Korea, I can’t seem to find this in the States, so I have my grandparents bring this over for me when they come for their visits. With this, a little goes a long way, so despite the small size, it hydrates and leaves your skin looking plump and glowy all day long. While I brush my teeth and last minute pack my school bag, I let the two Water Bank gels fully absorb and then follow up with AHC - Natural Perfecting Double Shield Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++ with a SPF of 50+. You should use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 no matter the weather forecast is. If you are going outside and the sun is out, put on the damn sunscreen. Your skin will thank you later. There are a number of reasons I recommend this. The first one being that it is a sunscreen and a color corrected all in one. I tend to pink really easily, and not a cute blush. I mean the pink where you low key look like a lobster the minute you go into the sun for more than 10 minutes. Since the color of the sunstuck is green, it naturally cancels out the redness. The other reason I recommend this is because it is so much easier and portable than suncreams/screens. It’s a stick that can be easily tossed into my bag when I need to put more sunscreen on (you should put reapply sunscreen after about 2 hours). Last big reason I like this is because it doesn’t leave that oily looking residue and it doesn’t become sticky and nasty when you sweat. The last of the Water Bank line and the Necessities lineup is the LANEIGE - Water Bank Hydrating Gel , which also has a cooling effect and can be put over sunscreen to give your skin that extra glow. I’m telling you, if you keep using this gel, your skin will be baby smooth within a week or two. Admittedly, some of these products are on the pricier side, but the results are worth the extra 5-7 bucks you will pay, plus, with these product, a lot goes a long way. All of the Laneige gels last me a good 6-7 months each and the toner and essence lasts me nearly an entire year. Keep in mind that I follow this skincare routine twice a day/everyday. That’s a lot longer than most products last, so consider throwing in a bit more money for a lot of results~ I hope you learned a lot from this post and were able to benefit from my reviews. I will continue with the waves and hopefully I will get through every wave my the end of next week.

I think if I had to pick an all-around favorite brand, it would have to be Laneige. Their products always work for my skin and are relatively affordable when compared to other brands! 🌼 This gel moisturizer is no different - super lightweight, absorbent, and hydrating, it’s been the perfect day- and nighttime moisturizer for me. It’s so silky and because of the gel consistency, it’s perfect for the oilier parts of my face. I especially love it during the day  🌼 The fifth ingredient is alcohol, which I usually try to avoid, but there are counter active ingredients included like glycerin, so it isn’t drying for me at all.

𝗪𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐁𝐚𝐧𝐤 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐨 𝐆𝐞𝐥 #laneigegiftedme⁣ ⁣ 𝘉𝘺 𝘓𝘢𝘯𝘦𝘪𝘨𝘦 ⁣ ⁣ The Water Bank line has been a long time favorite of mine. It was one of the first products I used from Laneige, and as I got into KBeauty. As a result, Laneige (and the Water Bank line) have a special place in my heart.⁣ ⁣ This gel moisturizer is perfect for warmer weather for my normal skin, leaning oily in the summer and dryer in the winter. It’s lightweight, and provides just enough hydration, giving my skin a plumped effect and a glow, without being oily. During colder months, I would layer this under the Laneige sleeping mask, and together, they would help my skin survive the dryness. It has no other claims other than hydration, so it pairs well with actives and plays nice with other products in my routine. ⁣ ⁣ I love the packaging, it is simply gorgeous. It comes with a little spoon, making the whole experience of using it such a pleasure. I’m not a fan of the added fragrance, but it’s not bothersome and smells nice. It doesn’t irritate my skin, I just prefer skincare without fragrance these days. ⁣ ⁣ 𝘗𝘳𝘰𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘵 𝘊𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘮𝘴:⁣ ⁣ ✨ Kale, watercress, and beet are soaked in seawater to extract three deeply hydrating minerals⁣ ✨ Calcium, potassium, and magnesium are used in the new Green Mineral Water, which promotes a balanced complexion and strengthened moisture barrier⁣ ✨ For combination to oily skin types⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Do you have any products that are nostalgic for you? ⁣ ⁣ Product is a pr sample

I emptied my LANEIGE - Water Bank Hydrating Gel and LANEIGE - Water Bank Eye Gel (on the right) and restocked on both of them (on the left)!! Note: the name for the Water Bank Gel Cream has changed to Hydrating Gel but the product is still the same! I’ve restocked on this combo multiple times before this and will keep on repurchasing them! 🙌🏻 They are my go-to gel eye cream and gel moisturizer that I bought when I was first getting into skincare years ago and it’s remained a tried and true favourite! If anyone is new to skincare and looking for super simple hydrating products, this is the duo for you! They both have a slightly thicker gel consistency but once it gets on your skin, it absorbs really nicely and feels very lightweight and cooling (I keep both of these in the fridge for an additional cooling effect). I keep coming back to these and restocking because they do exactly what they are supposed to - they keep your delicate eye area and your face very hydrated, plump and moisturizer throughout the day 💦 I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a lightweight hydrating gel eye cream and hydrating gel moisturizer! For the quality and size that you are getting, I think they are reasonably priced. The jars have a decent amount of product in them and last me a long time - a little goes a long way with both of these and you really only need to use a tiny bit - no need to be heavy handed or excessive with these two!

Empties 🥂

 
💕KOSÉ Softymo (
Empties 🥂 💕KOSÉ Softymo ($9) is the best value cleansing oil on Amazon. It’s a bit less thick and hydrating than the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, but it’s a third of the price and very effective. Last me for months. 💕naturelabtokyo Perfect Smooth Shampoo ($28) is a delight. Smelled like yuzu lemon and left my hair feeling clean and weightless. That being said, I’m currently using a shampoo from their Perfect Volume line which is even more conditioning, which I like more. 💕Laneige Water Bank Hydrating Gel ($35) - Holy grail moisturizer. Lightweight yet with enough creaminess to lock in moisture longer than competitors. Smells like bedtime.
