  • DHC-Cleansing Oil
    STEP

    dhc cleansing oil
    This is a no frills, dependable cleansing oil. I first found it when I was went to Japan – it was everywhere! I've since been able to find it in the randomest places – like Costco 😂. I'm always happy to try out other oil cleansers but somehow always come back to this one.
  • Make P:rem-Safe me Cleansing Foam
    STEP

    I've been using this for at least 6 months now. No fragrance, pH balanced, super gentle... my face never feels tight after this cleanser. Does its job well! I love this Korean brand, which Glow Recipe used to carry but does no longer, sadly :(
  • Herbivore-Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask
    STEP

    2x a week, I'll use this mask as an exfoliating mask to help tackles impurities. I like that this contains natural BHA and AHA gently exfoliate my skin – it doesn't tingle for me, but I've had friends tell me that this can be a bit irritating for them, so patch test!
  • The Plant Base-Hyaluronic Acid 100 Serum
    STEP

    the plant base hyaluronic acid 100 serum
    In general, I tend to focus a ton on hydration. This serum is 100% sodium hyaluronate (a form of hyaluronic acid that has smaller molecules than hyaluronic acid) and I've found it to be a real winner in terms of helping me get the lightweight hydration I crave. It glides on well and I almost massage it into my skin.
  • Physiogel -AI Cream
    STEP

    I found this cream in the dead of winter during freezing (literally) temperatures in Korea. My entire face was tight and cracking, and this saved me. Now I use it even in the milder California winters.
  • Garden of Wisdom-Camellia Japonica Oil
    STEP

    So... face oils are my obsession! I even tried to create my own blend, which is how I found Garden of Wisdom! 😊I like to buy their Camellia Japonica oil and slather it on my face. I look greasy at the end of my skincare routine, but that's how I like it. 🤷

I haven't been able to find Make P:rem products since Glow Recipe stopped carrying it.. 😔 Also, I remember my Korean aunt raving about Physiogel hehe. I feel like it's a bit of a cult product amongst Koreans! Haha
