Korean Skincare Routine – Does It Work?

Posted: Apr 18 2016

Yes, yes it does! When we first spotted the Korean skincare routine way back when, we thought it was way too much product to be using. Different people use a different amounts, typically between 8-12 items. We were using an average of maybe 3-4 items per night and then throwing in a mask here and there to fresh up. Still we were incredibly intrigued when this Korean routine came to the states.

Although we originally thought that less is more when it came to our skin, we couldn’t help but notice our skin look brighter and feel smoother after just going on this routine for a week. See what steps worked for us and the products we used to help us get fresher skin.
