I Tried A 10-Step Korean Skincare Routine For A Month

  • Published on Sep 20, 2017
  • 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: 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!!

    Also, the directions are on the sokoglam website under the product description. ANNNND the face masks are supposed to be done 2-3 times per week! I loved this since I have my 10 step at home!

    You were only suppose to exfoliate and wear a sheet mask once a week. Also there should've been 4 steps for the morning routine. The routine I'm talking about is here.

    I could have sworn that her skin looked brighter after that strawberry scrub. Maybe not the essence, face mask and what not, but the scrub seemed to work best on her and Tyler both.

    I recently started korean skincare and I only do about 5 steps but already in the first week of using the products I noticed a big difference with my face. I’ve been using the products I have now for a month and my face has never been better. I can definitely vouch that Korean skin care is really great especially for very sensitive skin like mine.

    I would advise that you use chemical exfoliators, these work brilliantly and are kinder to the skin.
    My P.M. routine is far longer and more tailored to my skin type. But I REALLY enjoy the entire process.
    Remember to allow time inbetween each layer for absorption of each product (2 or 3 mins.). Also the toner and essences add hydration ... NOT moisturization!
    BTW: your skin looked much improved, hydrated and glossy. 😊xx

    essences is a type of moisturizer that sucks the moisture from the air onto your skin to "prep" your skin for the moisturizer, and normally you should pat every moisturizer including the essence in

      I think it's never too early to start and your skin will thank you later on. I started doing my skincare routine at 18 and I'm not planning on quitting any time soon.
      You don't have to have all the steps, but you could start using the essentials:
      - cleanser
      - toner
      - moisturizer
      - sunscreen (spf)

    Little exaggerated!! Normal Korean girl's routine would be like.... 1. Oil cleansing (or balm) 2. Foam cleansing 3.occasionally scrub 4. Toner (or first essence) 5. Essence ( serum or mask sheet) 6. Cream (or sleeping mask) ... That's 3 steps down!!

    You don't need to use the expensive oil based cleansers with their chemicals and stuff. Just use, literally, oil. Coconut, almond and castor mixes work nicely. Removes the makeup really well. Steam your face with a hot cloth for a bit to really get nice results. I know it sounds counter intuitive but it really is great for oily skin. Oil breaks down oil and it cleans without drying the skin out so it really helps balance your oiliness. Worked great for me!

    it's better to regard the 10 step korean skincare as a basic guideline, not a hard ruleset. i'm korean and i don't do the 10 steps for my daily routine. at most 5-6 steps is enough for me every night. (mornings i just wash my face and put on moisturizer/spf). there's room for adjustments depending on skin type and season. since i don't wanna put too much on my face, i keep my skincare routine in check and make sure each product counts. my go to nightly routine is:
    1. cleansing water/oil
    2. foam cleanser
    3a. light exfoliant
    3b. toner
    4. essence OR sheet mask (which has a lot of its own essence)
    5. moisturizer and/or soothing gel
    6. eye cream

    I'm confused why you were doing all the 10 steps everyday? It's 10 parts to your entire skincare, not to your daily routine...

    i have been using the korean ten steps for like an year and it does get better when u r used to it.. now it takes only 5 minutes to finish up all the steps..i mean you dont have to use the exfoliant and face mask evry day ..like 2 times a week will be fine .
    ps: i like the k steps cause my skin is really dry and moisturizing my skin with all those doesnt make me looks oily at all.😊..you can also try those product which are made for oily or pimple skin in the routine..

    Nice! Just fyi, you dont do all of them all the time. And that step is not specifically scrubbing, just exfoliation, but that could be chemical and/or physical, but usually they recommend chemical exf.

    But Saf... your skin looked so much more plump and fresh after the end of the month. I know it didn't do much for the pimples, but if you find the right routine, it will. And yes, it is quite a commitment...
