Are your skin care products not working? Are you looking for new skin care products to try out? Do you want fast, effective changes to your skin? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, take a look at the following products!

All the products below are personal recommendations and may not 100% give the same result to everyone.

My Skin is Too Dry

Dr. Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution

Is your skin too dry? Do you want to hydrate your skin immediately? Then, I recommend Dr. Jart+’s Vital Hydra Solution cream, which you can use both morning and night. The cream has a light scent that you can barely smell. It’s also good for sensitive skin, so it won’t cause any trouble. The cream is thick enough for you to feel the hydration but thin enough that you don’t feel too heavy after applying.

My Skin barrier is Ruined

COSRX Pure Fit Cica Cream

Does your skin hurt because it is too dry? Is your skin barrier ruined because you used the wrong product? Cica Cream from Corsrx will fix it! I use it whenever my skin hurts because it is too dry or my skin barrier is ruined due to exfoliating too much. Spread it on your face slightly before going to sleep, and it will heal your skin overnight (with hydration). Recommend to both dry and oily skin!

I am already worried about aging

Trader Joe’s Retinol night serum

You may think, “Who buys skin care products at Trader Joe’s? I would rather use products from Sephora.” Trust me, for this price, you will get what you need from this product. Retinol is best for anti-aging, clearing pores, and preventing acne. There are various retinol creams and serums out there, but Trader Joe’s retinol serum is strong, effective, and cheap. However, you have to be careful. As strong and effective as it is, it can also cause side effects such as skin irritation, itching/burning, and redness. ALSO NEVER USE IN THE MORNING! It will give you a sunburn. The right amount you need is just three pumps for your whole face!

I want to clear my skin

Ishizawa Lab KEANA Rice Pack

Do you want to have clear, bright, glowy skin like K-pop stars? Try the Keana rice pack! Not only will it brighten your skin, it will also treat your bumpy pores, shrink your pores, and hydrate your dry skin! The mask is made out of Japanese rice, which will moisturize your skin with fermented rice liquid, pump up your skin with rice bran oil that contains Vitamin E, support your skin’s barrier function with rice ceramides, and texturize rough skin with the rice bran extract! After cleansing, lightly dry your face and spread the mask on your face. Leave it for 5 minutes and rinse with warm water. You will see your result immediately, but the next day, you will clearly see the difference!

I need to Get rid of my acne

Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment

Do you have oily skin? Do you need to treat your acne immediately? Try using Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment! It will clear existing breakouts, control oil production, prevent future breakouts, and restore your skin barrier. The liquid has two layers, but it is expected to be that way, so don’t shake it or mix it! Use it at night before sleeping. Dip a cotton swab and pick up the pink liquid. Let the pink liquid cover your acne. Don’t use it too much, as it will remove too much oil from your skin. Let it dry through the night. Wash your face in the morning, and be careful not to have the product get in your eyes. You will see the difference right away.
