According to Korean beauty expert Charlotte Cho, who is also the founder of the coveted online Korean Beauty market Soko Glam, the products below will transform your skin when used correctly After reviewing them myself, I have to say I agree with Charlotte’s opinion; these products – which I’ve been using for about ten days – have shown tremendous results in my skin already. Keep scrolling to learn more about my new favorite Korean skincare products!
Klavuu Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack ($15)
To use this product, I applied an ample amount of it on my lips before I went to bed. I woke up every morning with supple, nourished, and hydrated lips. I highly recommend this product to someone who struggles to get an adequate amount of sleep, doesn’t drink a lot of water, or who often travels to avoid the occurrence of chapped, flaky lips.
Neogen Dermatology Real Cica Pad ($20)
These clean beauty pads are a game changer for someone who struggles with inflamed acne or highly sensitive skin. “They come soaked in an essence formulated with Centella asiatica extract, a popular K-beauty ingredient, to soothe and smooth skin without causing irritation. The concentrated formula also reduces redness and inflammation and helps promote collagen production, giving you a stronger skin barrier and a more even complexion. The formula contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and is free of potential irritants like parabens, artificial fragrance, and mineral oil.” I use this as a toner every night, or I apply it before my toner.
Dr. Oracle A-Thera Tea Tree Peeling Sticks ($24)
After using this product every other night after I apply toner, I have noticed a significant difference in my skin’s blackheads and pores. They look so much clearer than they did before. However, for those with sensitive or dryer skin (I only did this because my skin was being strangely oily) just use this product once or twice a week.
Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask ($27)
“This lightweight overnight mask is packed with a heavy dose of vitamin E, an antioxidant known to slow down cell aging. The unique pudding-like texture also known as “shape memory cream” clings to skin, creating an even surface that immediately absorbs upon application. Also included in the formula are niacinamide to brighten skin and the maximum limit allowed in a formula of wrinkle-fighting adenosine that aids in skin regeneration.” I used this mask about four nights this week, and my skin looks so radiant and healthy every morning after I use it.
Manefit Natural Gift Green Tea Pore Care Sheet Mask (4 Ct. Sheet Masks, $19)
In collaboration with Manefit, Charlotte Cho created this hydrogel mask that’s infused with whole green tea leaves to ensure that your skin is getting high quality ingredients straight from the source. Green tea is a natural antioxidant that cools, de-puffs and soothes acne-prone skin. To use it, after cleansing and toning, carefully remove from package. Smooth onto clean skin, and wear up to 20 minutes. Then, pat excess essence into skin to aid absorption. Discard mask after use.
