The fascinating factor is that this is among the steps, however they solely gave me one sheet masks. So I assume I am simply supposed to offer my very own sheet masks? Here is my high half. Oh, it is sparkly! [ CONCERNED ] Oh. It smells like Play-Doh. Aright, so it is on my face, I will depart it on for like, 15 minutes, after which we’ll try to end this skincare routine someday tonight, man. – TYLER: That is in the future. Alright, let’s take this unhealthy boy off. [ SHAKEN ] Oh, God. I really feel like I am simply moizturizing a lot, like my pores and skin goes to drown.

It feels actually easy, however at this level, I really feel like I may simply be feeling the layers of moisturizer that is already on my pores and skin. So with that, I feel I’ve used all my steps.
The one different step that’s within the routine is that this factor, which is a SPF to placed on through the daytime, so we’ll begin sporting that tomorrow. I feel that normally, I really feel actually moisturized; I feel I really feel like, handled, like I am like, I handled my pores and skin. I am simply gonna be a plump peach on the finish of this. However in addition to that, the time is prolonged. Possibly I am going to get a bit bit quicker normally, simply from getting the routine down. [ Week 1 ] This morning I felt moisturized, after which I washed the moisture off, after which put all of it again on, so I am persevering with to really feel moisturized. The theme of week one was just about simply that my pores and skin was drowning in lotion. An fascinating aspect impact is as a result of I used to be utilizing my palms to use a lot of the moisturizer, my palms, particularly my fingertips, are extremely delicate proper now. You are welcome to anybody’s hand that I shake throughout this month. The hydration additionally turned mainly into fertilizer for my mustache. It is actually been rising in like, good, hydrated, easy, lengthy. – TYLER: As a result of like, it is so moist, it is a greenhouse on your mustache. – [ LAUGHS ] It is a bit bit like a rainforest. It is like, you understand, you simply hold it moist, and I am going to begin rising. One early downside I bumped into was the sheet masks scenario. As I discussed earlier than, Soko Glam solely gave me one sheet masks within the package, So as an alternative of going out and like, shopping for a ton of sheet masks, I figured, Why not have Eve, my masks printing machine, print me one each evening? I need Eve to have the ability to take her candy time and like, do what she must do, however there isn’t any means I can do that each evening.
I imply, it is okay, Eve. Shh. I am simply going to cowl her ears. Yeah, she takes fing ceaselessly. – SAFIYA: However even with out Eve, doing a sheet masks each day could be simply an excessive amount of time normally, so the ten steps became 9 steps fairly rapidly. I feel I typically appear to be, extra hydrated and extra dewy. I could look a bit drained this morning as a result of I did not sleep that a lot final evening, however, normally, I feel my pores and skin is like, lastly accepting the moisture. By week two, I had gotten so much quicker at doing the routine, and I really feel like my pores and skin was wanting like, fairly plump and younger. Tyler seen this and determined to strive among the merchandise for himself. [ PLEASED ] Ooh! Oh, yeah. – No, not yet-! No-! – [ TYLER SMACKING LIPS ] – SAFIYA: A minimum of let it sit in your face for a second. – It is like.. it is like jam. She’s placing Smuckers on my face. – I don’t advocate placing Smuckers in your face.
You do not assume it tastes good? – It is bitter. – SAFIYA: [ LAUGHS ] Do not try this! – TYLER: It is far more bitter than you’ll assume. It seems scrumptious. That was gonna be the toughest half about it was not consuming it. I do not need it any extra. Woah! Plenty of seeds in there. Very bodily. I imply, it is just one wash, however.. I like that. – SAFIYA: You truly look nice, to be sincere. – Actually? You would discover a distinction? – SAFIYA: Yeah, you look higher than me. Apart from Tyler utilizing, and likewise consuming, among the exfoliant, week two additionally led to one other hurdle. One thing that is occurring proper now’s that we’re heading out of city for the weekend, and I am attempting to determine find out how to pack my Korean skincare routine. It is not essentially going properly.
It is vitally tough to journey with. I used to be solely capable of carry seven of my ten steps with me. I additionally needed to test my suitcase to get every thing right here, as a result of there was simply an excessive amount of fluid in each bottle. They weren’t fairly journey pleasant. I additionally acquired my interval that week, so between not having all my merchandise, driving the crimson wave, touring, and Chicago simply being fairly darn humid, I began seeing some pimples. I began breaking out a bit bit. Similar to, there’s like, one within the forehead, there’s like one over right here, one over there. I really feel like at present, I am simply geared up with like, 1 000 moisturizers, and I need to have the ability to like placed on like a bit spot therapy. I haven’t got one, as a result of that is not likely a part of the regime. I am simply gonna hold moisturizing it and hope that it will definitely goes away as soon as my interval goes away. By week three, the pimples had been nonetheless there. So I attempted my present go-to spot therapy, which is tea tree oil. However there are simply so many different merchandise on this routine, I felt prefer it was rendered principally ineffective. So the pimples dominated the day. I acquired a great one going right here, after which I additionally acquired a great one going up right here. And a smaller one going there, and a pair extra going over there.
I really feel just like the philosophy on skincare has modified so much. Like, within the 2000s, it was like, Oh, you may have oily pores and skin? You must dry your face out and wash it. And now it is like, Oh, you may have oily pores and skin? You must cleanse with oil. What ought to I be doing? I do not know. Minus the zits, by week 4, I felt like I had a fairly well-oiled machine. Actually and figuratively. So that is me doing my entire routine so as. I feel I lastly figured it out, after weeks. So we have got oil cleaning, cleaning, scrubbing, firming, essencing, eye creaming, moisturizing, an SPF-ing. And that is it. Fairly easy, huh? There’s additionally my nighttime serum/essence, however I solely use that at evening. So, I assume it is solely like, eight steps morning and evening. eight steps twice a day, 16 steps a day. Um, 16 occasions three is 48, so 400 and like, 96 occasions? I did 496 functions of one thing to my face this month. I hope that math is correct. I feel it’s.
– SAFIYA: General. I loved my month doing a Korean skincare routine. I do not assume that my pores and skin seems like, fully totally different. Like, I do not assume that my face simply seems like child’s buttocks. However I do assume that my pores and skin might be extra hydrated than it is ever been earlier than. I positively assume I will use all of those merchandise till they’re completed, like, I did like all of them a good quantity. And I truly assume that after utilizing every thing for a month, I do have a good quantity of every thing left. Positively my favourite steps had been the oil-based cleanser and the attention cream. The oil-based cleanser is like, witchcraft. This factor truly actually does take off your entire make-up. The opposite product I actually preferred was this eye cream. Very good, smells good, very moisturizing. I’ve truly been sneaking among the eye cream as much as the brow as properly. I do not assume it is like, magnitudes higher than every other eye cream I’ve ever tried, however the scent like, inspired me to maintain utilizing it. It was good for morale. So in some regards, like, utilizing this type of like, starter pack of like, ten steps, was a great way to love, get launched to the Korean skincare with out having to do a whole lot of decision-making or ordering myself.
I feel you would positively like, substitute different merchandise in for these merchandise. It is extra about identical to, doing all of the steps, and like, actually like placing the work in. And the time. And the power. And the rubbing. I do assume that I will incorporate no less than extra steps into my regular routine. Possibly not ten, or 9, or eight, however you understand, possibly like 5. Or six. I’m going to look right into a spot therapy although, as a result of the pimples come and go, however they’re positively a presence.
