– SAFIYA: hi there friends, and welcome to a different video. This month, i’m going to be swapping my present skincare movements for a ten step Korean one. In the united states, over the last couple of years, there’s been quite a lot of hype around Korean skincare. I’ve heard a lot about the advantages of it, like hydration, anti-aging. I see the phrases "brightening" and "plumping" rather a lot, but for me, there’s continuously been a bit of bit of an intimidation element in attempting it out, as a rule due to the fact that of the amount of steps and one-of-a-kind varieties of products there are.<br><br>So I bought this "newbie’s Intro to Korean Skincare" kit package from this internet site known as Soko Glam, which entails ten merchandise, and no instructions. But after a little Googling, I suppose I as a minimum understand roughly what order the steps are supposed to go in. It seems like i’m gonna be doing a variety of cleaning, washing, scrubbing, firming, essencing… Anything "essence" is, moisturizing, and moisturizing again. I’m Sisyphus, the sink is my rock. This is a large step up for my current skincare pursuits, which includes like three steps: cleansing, scrubbing, and moisturizing. But i’m excited to try out this activities for a month and see if there are any seen advantages. Okay, let’s dive right in. All right, let’s sooner or later smooth this face, correct? Let’s get into it. I think that surely, within the night time, now we have 9 steps, and then in the daylight we now have ten steps, seeing that some of the steps is like, SPF, but we have now obtained nine steps for the night time, so let’s have a look at how long that takes.<br><br>I mean this is not one among them. That is Tyler’s hair mousse. – SAFIYA: however, uh- – TYLER. Hey babe, i’ve been looking for that really. So in actual fact we begin with a make-up remover, or oil-based cleaner. It’s referred to as "easy It Zero" by way of banila co. Like vanilla, but… Banila. So essentially, i assume you employ your historical spatula, you gouge some out, water fingers, Bada bing, bada increase. – TYLER: you can do it together with your make-up on? You don’t must take your makeup off first? This is *supposed* to take your makeup off. It can be like an oil. – TYLER: Are there any instructional materials in each and every this sort of boxes? – SAFIYA: i am hoping so. "Use the spatula and take a cheap quantity of the balm." Ohhhh, it looks like coconut oil! – SAFIYA: "Gently massage the system in circular motions onto dry epidermis to dissolve make-up." when I appear at my hands, I’ve received these pellets of like, foundation-coloured somethin-somethin’. I wish to wash my face so dangerous. – TYLER: you don’t like it? I admire that it is taking the makeup off, it seems, however i do not like the way it feels on the face.<br><br> – TYLER: One step down, eight to go. Oh, there’s just a little oil within the eyes, however I believe my makeup’s gone. – TYLER: it’s absolutely gone. Subsequent is our water-based cleanser. You cleanse with oil, you cleanse with water. And you moisturize, you moisturize. That is known as the "real recent Foam green Tea cleanser." "Pump one to two puffs, and gently therapeutic massage far and wide wet face." Oh this smells so high-quality. It smells like anything tea leaves are at the bottom. I do not like matcha to drink, but on the face, I would be given it. Okay, patting dry.<br><br>So the next move is exfoliator, so we have bought this thing that they’ve given us. That is the "Strawberry food cure Scrub mask." – TYLER: Ooh! – SAFIYA: Oh, it smells like strawberries, woah. – TYLER: I need to eat that! – TYLER: Crusty needs some too. – SAFIYA: Crusty, you want some? – SAFIYA: No. No. Truly, I just massage this into my skin. Oh, it’s heat, ahhh! It’s warming! Ohh, it is warming on my face! I do not know if that is what it is imagined to do, it appears like, a bit like, acidic almost? – TYLER: Yeah – SAFIYA: Like as if it can be sort of like, *attacking* chemically the highest layers of my dermis. Alright, it’s been a few minutes, let’s take this off. Oh! My epidermis is so soft! There we go, step three down.<br><br>Step four is toner. They are referred to as the "healthy Cotton healing firming Pads" by way of re:p . – SAFIYA: They odor like ginger! "right after cleansing, use one sheet of pad, utilized to brush throughout T-zone, and lightly faucet on U-zone." "U-zone" must be this, correct? I do not feel any one of a kind, but… I suppose I odor a little bit bit more like sushi. Next is the essence. Here it’s. – TYLER: there is so many merchandise. – there may be so many things. – TYLER: you are going to ought to seem this up like, every time. This is the Galactomyces "95 Whitening vigour Essence." it is in actual fact like a second toner, I consider? I suppose it identical to… It can be virtually like a "pre-moisturizer"… I have no idea. It does *some thing* good on your skin. Essentially it says, "On cheeks, unfold a generous amount to epidermis, and then tap the beneath-eye discipline as if playing the piano." okay.<br><br>I feel I played the piano relatively good. Oh… I missed the mask section. – TYLER: What? I suppose I used to be supposed to do the masks earlier than the essence step, so I did it out of order for this one. Going forward, i’ll swap them again to where they’re supposed to be, however only for today i am simply going to put the mask on now. That is the Manefit "Bling Bling Hydrogel" masks, and that i suppose like most masks, you simply put it on for like, 15 to twenty minutes. The fascinating thing is that this is among the steps, but they only gave me one sheet masks. So i suppose i’m simply supposed to provide my possess sheet masks? This is my high 1/2. Oh, it can be sparkly! Oh. It smells like Play-Doh. Aright, so it is on my face, i’ll go away it on for like, quarter-hour, and then we’re going to check out and finish this skincare pursuits sometime tonight, man. – TYLER: this is *one* day. Alright, let’s take this unhealthy boy off.<br><br> Oh, God. I believe like i am just moizturizing so much, like my dermis goes to drown. So thus far, we have now executed cleaning, cleaning, scrubbing, toning, masking, and essence. So now we’re gonna do lotion, then eye cream, eye cream, and then night moisturizer. I’m just a little overwhelmed, but I believe my face goes to find it irresistible. This is called the "Snail Bee high content material Lotion." Smells type of like corn. It feels quite satisfactory though. This is like my 1/3 moisturizing step in a row, and i have two moisturizing steps left. Alright, so that was once lotion. Next up is eye cream. So that is the "Moisture Barrier Eye Cream" via Goodol. – SAFIYA: equipped? – TYLER: – SAFIYA: That was approach an excessive amount of for the eyes.<br><br>i’m learning as we go how a lot we need. Oh wow. Oh, it’s a exceptional, wealthy cream. Simply pat that in. So that is eye cream! All right, so the final step for the evening is that this "night repair Cream." – SAFIYA: is that this not a cream? – TYLER: Oh, that’s hardcore. I believe that truly probably it’s an essence, so we’re supposed to place it on at the same time as this? Like, you are supposed to place two essences? I will put this on now, however after I do that next time, i will do it while that I put this essence on.<br><br>very well, so i’m going to take a bit bit, and we’re simply gonna put it on high of the whole thing that is happened. It smells variety of like, honey-ish? It feels relatively gentle, but at this point, I suppose like I could just be feeling the layers of moisturizer that is already on my epidermis. So with that, I think I’ve used all my steps. The only different step that’s within the movements is that this thing, which is a SPF to position on in the course of the daytime, so we’ll begin carrying that the next day.<br><br>I consider that ordinarily, I think relatively moisturized; I believe I feel like, handled, like i am like, "I handled my epidermis." i’m simply gonna be a plump peach on the end of this. However besides that, the time is prolonged. Probably i’m going to get just a little bit rapid commonly, just from getting the activities down. This morning I felt moisturized, after which I washed the moisture off, after which put all of it again on, so i’m continuing to think moisturized.<br><br>The theme of week one used to be mainly simply that my skin was once drowning in lotion. An interesting facet outcome is considering I used to be making use of my palms to apply so much of the moisturizer, my hands, exceptionally my fingertips, are totally gentle proper now. "you are welcome" to someone’s hand that I shake during this month. The hydration also grew to become essentially into fertilizer for my mustache. It is rather been developing in like, exceptional, hydrated, gentle, lengthy.<br><br>- TYLER: given that like, it’s so moist, it’s a greenhouse to your mustache. – it is a bit bit like a rainforest. It’s like, , you simply preserve it moist, and i’ll start growing. One early main issue I ran into was once the sheet masks trouble. As I recounted before, Soko Glam only gave me one sheet mask within the kit, So instead of going out and like, purchasing a ton of sheet masks, I figured, "Why no longer have Eve, my masks printing laptop, print me one each night time?" i want Eve to be capable to take her sweet time and like, do what she desires to do, but there isn’t a means i can do this each night time. I mean, it can be ok, Eve. Shh. I am simply going to cover her ears. Yeah, she takes f***ing without end. – SAFIYA: however even with out Eve, doing a sheet masks every day can be just an excessive amount of time in general, so the ten steps turned into nine steps beautiful speedily.<br><br>I believe I by and large seem like, more hydrated and extra dewy. I may appear slightly tired this morning considering that I failed to sleep that a lot last night, however, commonly, I believe my skin is like, eventually accepting the moisture. With the aid of week two, I had gotten a lot faster at doing the routine, and that i suppose like my skin used to be watching like, pretty plump and younger. Tyler seen this and determined to try one of the crucial merchandise for himself. Ooh! Oh, yeah. – No, now not yet-! No-! – – SAFIYA: at least let it sit on your face for a second. – it is like…<br><br>it’s like jam. She’s striking Smuckers on my face. – I don’t recommend putting Smuckers to your face. – I do. – So i will be able to consume it now? Oh! Blech! – SAFIYA: you do not think it tastes excellent? – it is bitter. – SAFIYA: don’t do that! – TYLER: it is much more bitter than you may count on. It looks delicious. That was gonna be the toughest section about it was now not eating it. I do not want it any more. Woah! A lot of seeds in there. Very bodily. I imply, it is just one wash, but… I admire that. – SAFIYA: You truly look nice, to be honest. – relatively? You would discover a difference? – SAFIYA: Yeah, you appear higher than me. Besides Tyler using, and in addition consuming, one of the most exfoliant, week two additionally prompted an extra hurdle. Something that is going down proper now is that we’re heading out of town for the weekend, and i am attempting to figure out learn how to percent my Korean skincare events. It is no longer always going good. It is very problematic to journey with. I was simplest in a position to convey seven of my ten steps with me.<br><br>I also needed to assess my suitcase to get the whole thing right here, for the reason that there was just an excessive amount of fluid in each bottle. They weren’t really "journey pleasant." I additionally received my period that week, so between no longer having all my products, riding the crimson wave, visiting, and Chicago just being lovely darn humid, I started seeing some acne. I started breaking out slightly bit. Identical to, there may be like, one in the brow, there is like one over here, one over there. I suppose like presently, i’m just prepared with like, 1 000 moisturizers, and that i wish to be equipped to like placed on like somewhat spot treatment. I shouldn’t have one, considering the fact that that is now not particularly a part of the regime.<br><br>i’m just gonna hold moisturizing it and hope that it finally goes away once my interval goes away. By using week three, the zits had been still there. So i attempted my present go-to spot cure, which is tea tree oil. However there are in order that many different merchandise on this routine, I felt adore it was rendered in general useless. So the pimples dominated the day. I acquired a excellent one going here, and then I additionally obtained a good one going up here. And a smaller one going there, and a couple extra going over there. I think like the philosophy on skincare has transformed a lot. Like, in the 2000s, it used to be like, "Oh, you may have oily dermis? You must dry your face out and wash it." And now it’s like, "Oh, you’ve gotten oily epidermis? You should cleanse with oil." What should I be doing? I have no idea. Minus the zits, via week 4, I felt like I had a gorgeous well-oiled desktop. Literally and figuratively. So this is me doing my whole routine so as. I believe I subsequently figured it out, after weeks. So we now have obtained oil cleansing, cleaning, scrubbing, firming, essencing, eye creaming, moisturizing, an SPF-ing.<br><br>And that is it. Lovely simple, huh? There may be also my middle of the night serum/essence, however I simplest use that at night time. So, i assume it’s most effective like, eight steps morning and night. 8 steps twice a day, 16 steps a day. Um, 16 instances three is forty eight, so four hundred and like, ninety six instances? I did 496 purposes of something to my face this month. I am hoping that math is right. I suppose it’s. – SAFIYA: total,. I enjoyed my month doing a Korean skincare events. I don’t feel that my dermis looks like, thoroughly specific. Like, i do not suppose that my face just looks like child’s buttocks.<br><br>but I do feel that my epidermis is quite often more hydrated than it is ever been before. I certainly think i will use all of those merchandise until they are completed, like, I did *like* them all a good quantity. And i in reality suppose that after utilising the whole thing for a month, I do have a good quantity of the whole lot left. Undoubtedly my favourite steps had been the oil-headquartered cleaner and the eye cream. The oil-established purifier is like, witchcraft. This factor virtually fairly does take off your entire make-up. The opposite product I particularly preferred was this eye cream. Very excellent, smells excellent, very moisturizing. I’ve honestly been sneaking some of the eye cream as much as the forehead as good. I don’t consider it can be like, magnitudes better than some other eye cream I’ve ever tried, however the scent like, inspired me to keep utilising it. It used to be excellent for morale. So in some regards, like, using this sort of like, "starter %" of like, ten steps, was once a great way to love, get introduced to the Korean skincare with no need to do various selection-making or ordering myself. I suppose you might obviously like, substitute different merchandise in for these products.<br><br>it can be extra about identical to, doing all the steps, and like, rather like hanging the work in. And the *time*. And the energy. And the rubbing. I do consider that i am going to incorporate as a minimum more steps into my usual movements. Possibly not ten, or 9, or eight, but you already know, might be like 5. Or six. I’m going to seem into a spot therapy though, because the acne come and go, however they’re absolutely a presence.
