I have always been curious about the 10-step korean skincare routine, so I tried it for an entire month to see how it was & if there were any noticeable benefits! I tried a oil cleanser, water-based cleanser, scrub, toner, essence, moisturizer, eye cream, night serum, and SPF every day and night for 31 days to see if they live up to the hype!
To clarify, I stopped using the sheet masks after the first week and I used the scrub 3-4 times a week! So I guess it was more like ~450 applications a month. I got my kit here: https://sokoglam.com/products/10-step-skincare-routine-set-combo

HELLO FRIENDS!!! i just wanted to clarify, i know ur not supposed to put on a scrub every single day, i used the scrub like 3-4 times a week! i had a line in the video about it and i think we cut it for some reason. so i guess my math was wrong and it was more like ~450 applications!
thanks & sorry for the confusion!!
I was looking at a Korean skincare line last night. One that was on Shark Tank? I can't remember the name. Anyway, I've found my oily skin to extremely dry this winter. I'm interested in trying that line, they have hydrating, a line for oily skin, I stop myself because of all the products I currently own. I need to use these up, then slowly purchase to see if I like. Currently my face is like alligator, yet I have pimples. I haven't had a period in a long while....lol
I think any everyday skin care routine AND using sunscreen will make your skin keep its youthful look, especially if you start early (in your teens) and continue (until you're 6-feet-under) you should be good. I say should be because there are some products that are too harsh to be used for skin care. I'm 45 and my cousin who's 4 months younger looks at least 4 years OLDER than I do. The difference...skin care routine and sun avoidance (me) while she relies on makeup to try to look younger.
There is a How To at the bottom of the Skin Care Routine on SoKo, it lists the item you use in order for the day and night routines. You only need to use the sheet mask twice a week.
That is an awful lot of stuff to use every day. I just use four skin care products - two for day and two for night - an eye gel and a moisturizer.
im a malaysian and my place is more to tropical (hot and humid) so most of the concern is oily skin or combination for some. so this is my skincare routine:
1. clean my make up (if any)
2. cleansing (gel instead of the soapy one)
(essence if you want to, i dont)
4. serum (i do apply some on my neck)
5. mask for 15-20mins so my skin absorbs the benefits from serum and from the mask itself (dabs a little after you take it off so the moisture is absorbed)
6. aloevera gel as moisturiser (i apply some on my neck)
i do step 2,3,4,6 and finish it with a sunblock 🧴
A tip for traveling with Korean skin care products, use new contact lens cases as containers for the products. Just don’t forget to label them. The creams look pretty much same once you put them in the lens cases. But they sure make packing much easier when traveling 😉
The time revolution is an ampoule, it goes after the essence. Cosrx is my favorite brand, I have their blackhead toner, hyaluronic acid, and good morning cleanser, the dream team! And any snail cream is to die for!
I use korean products too just not so many... I have combination skin meaning I have small pimples while having really sensitive thin skin that can get dry really fast in some areas. I had tried soo many clarins, l oreal , etc products and they all gave me pimples! I am so glad I found about these koreans products... I dont really use the ones in the video but they are somehow similar and they work for me! And they are cheap and last a lot of time too so... yeah
When you take care of your skin too much it will harm it. I noticed that when you just stick to using one kind of soap that suits you (the better one is Marseille Soap (it's all made with natural ingredients) ) your skin will look flawless plus NO pimples. 🙇
I've been doing this for about a year now and really noticed a difference for the better in my experience. About 2 months in though I really hated how much time it took in front of the bathroom mirror, so I got a smaller mirror and now do it while watching an episode of whatever tv show or youtube video I like before bed. It's a nice night routine!
Meh, it did not work for me. I tried doing it for 4 years and there's too much fragrance, too many steps. It can get expensive. The sheet mask will break me out. It was too much. The only thing I like is the double-cleansing step, and the Innisfree jeju volcanic clay mask. I just stick to fragrance free cleansing oil (Hado Labo), Laroche Posay cleanser, tretinoin, eye cream, and cerave daily moisturizing lotion. Oh! And sunscreen.
I am also using the Banila.co cleanser since two months ago and I really love it, it really melts all the makeup. My current routine is only 5-step and I use other products, but I would like to try some more korean ones. Thank you for your video!
Your overcaring your skin that's why you got pimples just use water on your face for a week without any products then after a week you will realized MOST of your pimples are gone. After a week you can start using your products again.
The 10-step KORAN skin care for women is lots easier. STEP-1 Put on a full body Burqa covering ALL of your skin. Repeat for 10 days. See! Nobody notices your skin issues! After 10 days repeat for remaining 355 days of year.
I think you would do better with korean skin care, it totally looked different. also american skin care does have a lot of harsh chemicals anyway, your face did improve a lot from what i saw i mean, less redness you're skin was was more of an even tone, after you did this. but also i think you wouldn't feel so weighted down in skin care if you patted your face a bit harder almost like you're slapping yourself but it shouldn't hurt anyways this was fun lol
I personally suggest the Althea Bare Essentials line as its basically the 7-step routine but in 3 steps, and the whole line is around $25 which is a great price in my opinion. The toner also works as a primer, which minimizes your makeup routine too. I’m not the biggest fan of the moisturizer as it feels a little like pudding on your face, but my super sensitive, extremely acne-prone and combination skin loves it. Lol I sound like an ad but its seriously amazing.
You keep saying matcha and sushi and stuff which is Japanese... Like gimbap is Korean and yh... I just wanted to say u keep referencing a different asian country. (I don't take offence I am neither Korean or Japanese, I just wanted to point it out.)
Aren't physical exfoliants bad for your skin? And exfoliants should only be used once a week. Also, masks, are only used a couple times to once a week. Also also, oily skin needs to use oils because of the following reason: oily skin comes from the skin believing that it is too parched, so it generates a ton of oil to compensate when in actuality, it's just overdoing it. By adding moisture to your skin, your skin accomodates to feeling hydrated and starts producing less oil.
The problem with this is that there was no research done on the products or the steps and she didnt buy the kit for her skin type. Soko Glam is also a blog that has very informational, in depth answers to literally every question she asked in the video. And they also have a kit for oily/combination skin that wouldve been probably better for her breakouts and made much more of a difference overall. The intro kit is for normal skin.
Sister out there I do a skin care routine like this however to seek better results
1. Exfoliate twice a week
2. Personally I put a mask on twice a week only after a face mask
3. SERUMS BEFORE LOTION
4. TONER BEFORE SERUM
5. Use a base cleanser before a water cleanser
6. For better effects, you should use a “scrubbing net” for your water cleanser and make it bubble up against your hands, collect the bubbles and cleanse your skin for better results
7. You need to at least wear spf to prevent hyperpigmentation
8. YOU NEED MOISTURE
9. Eat healthy 👸🏼🤠
Loved the video!! Nice brands and product selection! Best thing is to introduce your skin 1 product a time per week to let your skin get used to the products. And actually you could include the tea tree in your routine between the cleanser and toner. Two other tips if you are still using it; exfoliation and sheetmasks is recommended for 2 or 3 times a week each. Also usually travel with travel size of everything by buying those refillable small containers. Or get samples as I usually do. Loved loved loved it
I know this is way late - but I was re-watching a bunch
anyway - when you moisturize your face, share with your neck and decollete (chest) - those areas need the benefits of moisture and repair products as well :)
