7 Must-Have Korean Skincare Products For The Fall

It’s that time of year where summer is winding down and fall is slowly approaching. As the weather gets a bit cooler, it’s a good time to think about what you can do to change up your skincare routine. Here’s a look at seven must-have Korean skincare products that are perfect for everyone!

1. Low pH Good Morning Cleanser

This holy grail cleanser is a gentle cleanser that is awesome for pretty much all skin types! It’s perfect for the morning, but can be used in your night time skincare routine, too. The low pH formula gently removes makeup without stripping your skin, leaving it hydrated!

2. Thank You Farmer True Water Deep Cream

This light cream is perfect for the fall and winter and especially ideal for those who have dry skin. It is made of shea butter, aloe, hyaluronic acid, and inositol, which are all beneficial ingredients for helping sooth and moisturize your skin. It blends so perfectly into the skin and doesn’t feel heavy! It’s an ideal cream to have in your skincare routine.

3. Innisfree Enriched Orchid Cream

Another hard to resist cream, the Innisfree Orchid Cream is amazing for those with sensitive or dry skin! The best part of this cream is that not only it is moisturizing, but it has the light scent of real Jeju orchids without being overpowering. The cream does not feel heavy at all, and it’ll be hard for you to go back to any other creams that you were trying before.

4. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

Made up of 96 percent snail secretion, this essence not only hydrates your skin, but it also helps repair damaged skin that may have resulted from acne. It also helps with hyperpigmentation and will help your skin become more bright! It’s a step in your skincare regimen that you don’t want to miss because it targets basically everything your skin might need!

5. Heimish All Clean Balm

One of the best balm make-up removers, the Heimish All Clean Balm will remove the toughest of make-up and sunscreen from your skin. It has a light scent that isn’t too overbearing, and a little goes a long way. It’s especially ideal for those who have sensitive or dry skin. It won’t strip your skin, and it will help keep it moisturized. Perfect for all seasons, but definitely amazing as the weather gets cooler!

6. Papa Recipe’s Bombee Honey Mask

One of the more popular face masks is the Bombee Honey Mask. Its honey extract is amazing for those who have tired and dry skin. As the weather gets cooler, this is the only mask you really need. You will notice that your face will look brighter, clearer, and smoother after using it. Definitely a holy-grail mask!

7. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

It’s always a good idea to be taking care of your lips, especially as it becomes cooler! This Laneige lip sleeping mask is perfect to use in keeping your lips plump and moisturized. It’s a little bit gooey, but it comes with an applicator and it really does make a world of difference the following morning. This mask will definitely help those of you who love to wear lipstick. It makes it feel like you’re applying lipstick on a smooth and flawless canvas!
