By now, everyone knows how good the Korean skin care regimen is. It leaves your skin moisturized, dewy and feeling so soft. However, the basic Korean skin care routine has 10 steps–or more. That can add up to a lot of time and money, plus a very full bathroom cupboard. If you are the type of girl who thinks it requires a lot of effort to just wash your face in the morning, adding 9 other products into the mix seems crazy. Luckily, one big trend we are seeing come out of Korea right now is multitasking products. We’re not just talking about BB creams. Think products that work as essences, ampoules, moisturizers and more. There may not be one product that does all ten steps (yet) but these multitaskers save you time, money and bathroom counter space.
Take a look at the multitasking Korean beauty products that will streamline your skin care regimen:
If you aren’t sure what products do more than one job, look for labels that say “all-in-one.” It is a quick way to narrow down your options. This bottle might look like a cute jar of jam, but it is a three-in-one treatment that can be used instead of a toner, serum and moisturizer. It gets its name because it contains five antioxidant-rich berries.
This product ticks almost all the boxes. It provides the benefits of a toner, essence and emulsion in one sleek package. That’s not all. It balances skin’s pH, brightens and makes your skin glow from the inside out.
You have probably come across May Coop Raw Sauce before, even you did not realize that it was a Korean multitasker at the time.The cult favorite acts as a toner, emulsion and essence. It is made out of 93% maple tree sap which has smaller molecules than water, allowing it to absorb more easily.
You might be dubious about the term “beauty water,” but you aren’t paying more money for regular water in a fancy bottle. This popular product cleanses, tones, exfoliates and hydrates. You can use it in the morning and at night, or when you need a refresher during the day.
You may not see donkey milk in the dairy aisle at the grocery store, but it is an ingredient that is found in quite a few Korean beauty products. You can skip the moisturizer, serum and day or night creams when using this.
