Cute packaging is a huge reason I started buying K-Beauty products. Some of my first purchases were Elizavecca masks (have you seen that pig?). Since then, I've moved on to focusing on ingredients, but I still get suckered in by cute packing way too often!
Here's a rundown of my current skin care routine: Morning Routine -Ultra Gentle Cleanser by Face Reality: Face Reality is a Bay Area acne clinic that my esthetician uses. -Salicylic Toner by Face Reality -Manyo Factory Galactomyces Niacin Special Treatment Essence: Galactomyces ferment filtrate is the main ingredient in SK-II's Facial Treatment Essence. -Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream: This moisturizer is perfect for oily skin. It's light and not greasy at all. -Bioré UV Rich Watery Essence: My HG sunscreen -Makeup Evening Routine -Ultra Gentle Cleanser by Face Reality -8% Mandelic Acid Serum by Face Reality: Mandelic acid fixed my acne problem! -5% Benzyl Peroxide + Sulfur by Face Reality: Used to spot treat pimples. -Manyo Factory Galactomyces Niacin Special Treatment Essence -Stratia Liquid Gold: Stratia is an indie skin care company based out of Southern California. I credit this ceramide product with repairing my skin’s moisture barrier (also known as the stratum corneum). -Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream While this seems like a lot, it really doesn't take that long. In the morning, I can finish my routine in less than 10 minutes. At night, I usually apply products and do other things in between (like brush my teeth). I've definitely seen an improvement in my skin since starting this routine a year ago. Hope this helps!
I miss the old Memebox! They introduced me to Asian skincare products and I haven't turned back since! Here are some of my favorites: Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Elizavecca 24K Gold Mask (the sheet mask set) Secret Key Essence (Rose Gold Edition) COSRX Pimple Patches Manyo Factory Galactomyces Niacin Essence Masks by Elizavecca (except for the Hell Pore one because it HURTS) Tote bags and travel bags Haven't been able to find anything comparable to Memebox since they changed their business model. Maybe another company will pop up someday.
