My Top 10 Favorite K-Beauty Skincare Products

I have to admit that I’ve always been a “one-trick pony” when it comes to my skincare routine. I firmly do believe that if it isn’t broken, then don’t fix it, meaning if the products work then why change right? During my trip, I realized that while I love the items I’m using now, I do notice a different type of glow with Asian beauty products. Mainly because their formulas are tailored for my skin specifically , therefore the ingredients are aimed to work better on Asians/Asian Americans.

My Easy 5-Minute Skincare Routine for Day and Night

I never really shared my day and night skincare routine, which takes a mere 5-minutes.

Therefore, I decided to treat KSOLE to his first ever facial and of course, it had to be with OSEA.

I woke up one morning, walked into the bathroom and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I looked myself dead in the eyes and started crying. I grazed my right hand across my cheek, feeling the bumps underneath my skin, before moving my hand across my chin. Nothing but bumps. My smooth skin was no where to be found and in its place was redness, irritation, acne that had slowly taken over my face. I couldn't recognize myself anymore and the only thing I could rely on was the abusive amount of foundation to partially cover up this ugliness. I woke up every morning for the next three months, utterly depressed and in fear that this was permanent.

Clean Beauty with Credo

Everything you find at Credo is clean, from the ingredients in the products they carry, to the transparency between the brands, them, and the consumers. I've been using the below combination for the last month and have seen the difference in my skin. Not only me, but my boyfriend, friends, and family have noticed the significant difference this switch has done for me.
