Growing up in the United States, it was all about putting cucumbers on your eyes to decrease puffiness and soothe tired eyes.
We love that eye patches now exist to solve a plethora of beauty problems: tightening the skin, moisturizing, decreasing puffiness, decreasing fine lines and so much more!

10-STEP KOREAN SKIN CARE REVIEW
We are pretty obsessed with the 10-step Korean skin care routine. It seems super scary and daunting!
Youtuber Rachel Nguyen shot a great video about her recommended 10 step routine inspired by the book The Little Book of Skin Care: Korean Beauty Secrets for Healthy, Glowing Skin by Charlotte Cho from Soko Glam.
Rachel tried out this 10 step Korean beauty routine for several months and totally sees a huge improvement! She fell in love with all of the products.
Here are all the steps in the 10 step Korean Skincare Routine
- Oil based cleanser
- Water based cleanser
- Eye Cream
Of course we’ll be adding korean eye patches to this routine, making it an 11 step beauty routine.
Here’s what all the products look like below.
One of the most notable parts of the Korean skincare routine is the double cleansing, beginning with the oil based cleanser. Here she uses Banila Clean It Zero Sherbet Cleanser. It looks like a moisturizer but it totally melts off all the makeup. You put it on dry and then add warm water and just wash it off. Your skin is quite clean after using the Banila Cleanser! Rachel also recommends the Clinique – Take the Day Off cleansing balm if you prefer a trusted American version of the product.
Next up is the water-based cleanser. At first, cleansing twice might seem like overkill, especially if the first cleanser does such a good job already. Well, the oil based cleanser cleans off all the oil and the dirt but there is still some residue. The water cleanser will definitely get rid of everything! This water-based cleanser is more of the traditional foaming cleanser. It even has green tea leaves at the bottom of it. We love that! The NEOGEN Green Tea Foam Cleanser is not stripping, naturally brewed and it smells great.
Next up is exfoliation using Neogen’s Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine. The book recommends a mechanical exfoliator or a chemical one. A mechanical one is more physically abrasive like a sugar scrub, whereas a chemical exfoliator uses ingredients such as lactic acid.
You only have to do this step once or twice a week. We love how this comes in individual exfoliating pads. They are soaked in acid. The Neogen is a cross between both mechanical and chemical exfoliation.
Next up is toner using Son & Park Beauty Water. We love the super clean packaging! In Korea, the toners are much more hydrating than they are astringent. This product is super refreshing.
Step 5 is Essence. What does that mean?!
Here Rachel uses Missha Time Revolution. Essences are the heart of the Korean 10-step Beauty Routine. They help hydrate and increase cell turnover. Rachel calls this a holy grail item.
Next, we got boosters and serums. After you have thoroughly prepped your skin, you are now ready for the serum to get sucked up into your skin. Serums usually have a thicker consistency and they help brighten your skin or increase cell turnover. The recommended product here is KLAIRS Vitamin C Serum
Are we only on Step 7?! Step 7 is the Sheet Mask. The once Rachel uses in the video is a bit different than the ones that I have tried. It’s a two-piece mask from Mannefit. This is a gel based mask.
There are endless choices of Korean Masks that you could use for this step.
This eye cream has beautiful packaging which we always appreciate! The Missha Gumsul Giyoon Eye Cream is super thick and super hydrating.
Step 9 is the last step if this is your nightly routine. Yes! Finally!!
Here she uses Son & Park Beauty Gel. I’ve never used a beauty gel before so this was fun and it felt super refreshing. This is the most important part of your nighttime skincare routine. This book recommends that once a week you substitute your moisturizer with a sleeping mask or a night cream.
You’re done! Unless this is your daytime routine. If so, you’ll be on your last step, step 10!
This is the most important step in your daytime skincare routine, which is wear SPF, always! Sun is the ultimate skin ager, so make sure to protect that precious skin!
