This is not an exhaustive list, as there are likely tons of sunscreens out there that I don’t know of that meet my standards. You may also find that you like a sunscreen from a category outside of your skin type. Feel free to experiment. I will be updating this list if I come across any new sunscreens that meet my criteria.

POC may want to stick with chemical-only formulas, to avoid white-cast.

Full disclosure: I have not personally used every sunscreen on this list. I compiled this list from ingredients lists and user reviews. I place an (*) before the one’s I’ve tried.

Current Skin Care Routine -- Trend Korea

I gotta admit, as an American, I have been very lazy with my skin. About a few years ago, using a little bar soap and rubbing it around on my face in the shower seemed liked plenty — i was young, didn’t get breakouts that often, and who really has the time??? Once I reached my twenties and I started getting more into makeup, I started realizing that taking care of my skin was going to be really important if I wanted my makeup to look good. Why put layers of heavy foundation on if you don’t have to? I was noticing that my skin looked overly dry and I was getting more breakouts. When I researched American skin care, the information was overwhelming, but so was the price. I wanted to go beyond stripping toners and greasy moisturizer and I didn’t want it to cost me hundreds of dollars.

Once I started getting more into k-dramas, I became more aware of the Korean skin care craze, and it interested me. While a few years ago, cleanser and moisturizer seemed more like a chore, I now incorporate anywhere from 4 to 10 steps in my skin care routine. While I don’t always want to do it, I know that taking care of my 30-year old skin will be worth it in the long run. I’m not afraid of getting older, but I’m also not rushing to make it come faster either!

Here is what I’m currently doing and am starting to notice a difference in my skin – I am constantly changing it around, but I try to keep the routine as consistent as I can.

Skin Type — Dry – Normal


Originally posted by ashotofglamour

1. CLEANSER: In the shower I use a foaming wash, currently Mizon Snail Repair Foam Cleanser, which doesn’t help me when I am having an acne moment, but cleans my skin very nicely. 1-2 times a week I will use an acne treatment cleanser, just to prevent breakouts. Right now, I’m using The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash. I don’t like using an acne cleanser every day, because it starts to overdry my skin. My skin is dry naturally, so I try to prevent it from being overdry.

2. TONER: Once I shower, I pat my face dry (don’t rub) and spritz on a little Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater. It’s not a traditional toner, but its a nice pick-me-up while I’m waiting for my current toner in the mail. American toners are very drying, but korean toners are much more moisturizing. Mario Badescu does well in a pinch, but once that is gone, I will be using the Scinic All Day Fine Pore Toner that I get with my subscription to Beauteque. Beauteque is monthly Korean subscription service bag that caters to skincare and makeup products. I’m really enjoying the service currently.

3. AMPOULE: I don’t have an essence currently, but before any serum I’ve been using the Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule. This is a completely new product to me, as I had never even heard of a ampoule. The steps that come between cleanser and moisturizer are meant to treat the skin’s problem areas, and for me I am concerned with dry dehydrated skin and hyper pigmentation. The ampoule is meant to help with that.

4. SERUM: My travel serum just ran out, but I’m waiting to try a new serum, Artnaturals Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid which will help with the hyper pigmentation in my skin. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid are supposed to be great for your skin and I have had a lot of success with serums in the past. Both the ampoule and the serum are meant to be patted into the skin and I try to avoid rubbing as much as I possibly can.

5. EYE CREAM: Right now, I am using a generic avocado eye cream but once that is used up, I will use the Missha Super Aqua Relief Eye Cream, morning and night. This is probably one of the most important steps to me currently, as the eyes are the driest part of your face, and therefore the quickest to show signs of aging.

6. MOISTURIZER: I’m finishing a Ponds Moisturizing Lotion right now, but as soon as it arrives, I will be using the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel. As I said before, I suffer from dry and dehydrated skin (particularly in the winter) so something really soothing and moisturizing is really good for me. Aloe Vera also calms redness, which I can get around my nose and forehead. This is also often called emulsion – they are pretty much the same thing.

7. SUNSCREEN: The final step is one that I have been the most spotty about in my skin care. I currently use the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen before I apply my makeup primer, and I’m liking it just fine. I get so little exposure to the sun and I have been too lazy to use sunscreen since I was a child. I have medium-light toned middle eastern skin and I don’t burn in the sun very easily. The more I research, the more I understand that it doesn’t really matter how little sun I get, my skin needs to be protected from it. Excess sun exposure (especially gone unprotected) will only speed up the wrinkle formation and dehydrate your skin. The one I use isn’t greasy at all, so that is a plus for such an inexpensive sun screen.

At night, I add a few steps and focus a lot on brightening and moisturizing.

8. SHEET MASK: 2-3 times a week, after my serum, I will use a sheet mask. These are very inexpensive and are a great way to provide concentrated essence to your skin, targeting specific concerns. A great option, and one I am currently trying, is to use Beauteque’s Mask Maven subscription. For about 15 bucks a month, they send you 10-12 masks to try from many brands targeting a lot of different areas. It is so worth the money for me and I like having the opportunity to pamper my skin after a long day. I just pop one and watch youtube or a drama and just chill. 

9. EXFOLIATE: Once or twice a week, I will exfoliate my skin using a wash cloth, but I will be starting to use Skinfood’s Pineapple Morning Peeling Gel to get rid of the dead skin on my face. A peeling gel is a gentler way to exfoliate your skin, and is something I have never really used. This is a step I have been more willing to skip, but I’ve really been trying to not neglect exfoliation, as I don’t want to apply great moisture to my skin if it’s just lying on top of dead cells.

10. SLEEPING PACK: Almost every night, I will use a sleeping pack, which helps to moisturize my skin while sleeping. Currently, I am using Scinic’s Collagen Jelly Cream, a Japanese Sleeping Pack with Hyaluronic Acid, and Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask. I always wake up with incredibly soft skin, which for this dry skinned girl, is a dream.

I know it seems like a lot, but honestly, I really like how I feel after taking care of my skin. You can customize these steps to your own routine and needs, but don’t wait until you’re skin is in bad shape to start – start when your young, and your skin is able to bounce back quickly. 

Below I will put a list of affordable skin care lines I’ve found and some youtube channels to watch if you’re interested in this process at all. I’ve really stepped up my game and I hope you do too. You deserve it!

Notes & Common Questions

1. Do you do this EVERY DAY?

In short, yes. While I used to just do a basic cleanse, tone, and moisturize, I have noticed a huge turnaround in the moisture and health of my skin since expanding the steps I take. If I am particularly lazy (which happens every once in a while) I will downgrade my evening steps to cleanse, tone, serum, and moisturizer but this only happens rarely. When I started expanding my steps, it was a chore but now it feels weird if I don’t do each step, and it’s as routine as brushing my teeth before bed. Let me put it this way, when I had invasive gallbladder surgery, I still forced myself out of bed to hobble over to my sink to do my skincare — I’m a freak, I know.


Haha…no – not. at. all. if you are serious about upping your game there are plenty of drugstore priced brands you can choose from, and I typically get mine from Ebay, Amazon, or beauty subscription boxes that allow me to use higher end samples of great products. I certainly haven’t just gone out and bought 80 products at one time — instead I focused on developing a regimen that I added to over the last year and a half. One product at a time until I found something that worked for me.


I’m a 31 year old woman with combination skin (oilier t-zone and dryer perimeter) and am prone to redness, hyper pigmentation, uneven texture and the occasional breakout. If you have severely acne-prone skin, you really should consider seeing a dermatologist. I have no background in skincare so I am not at all qualified to recommend products for a chronic condition. I can only speak for my own skin condition.


This is the Korean method, and there can be even more steps than the ones that I do. Since the goal is to maintain skin health, I feel it’s important to spend as much time on my skin as I do on applying my makeup. So if I don’t apply makeup, I don’t tend to do every step. Once you reach your mid-twenties you can start to notice considerable changes in the way your skin operates and what may have become acceptable before (cleansing and moisturizing) naturally would need more steps if your skin is aging. At 31, I am lucky to have very little permanent damage to my skin and almost no fine lines or wrinkles yet. The key for me is prevention – I refuse to spend $300 on some wrinkle repair cream because I chose to ignore my skin until I turned 45.

There are a lot of information that can be found online and Youtube is a great place to find recommendations. Here are a few that I suggest:

  • The Beauty Breakdown
  • Glow Recipe
  • Lia Yoo
  • Nadine Baggott
  • Wishtrend TV
  • Caroline Hirons
  • Gothamista
  • Edward Avila
  • Joan Kim
  • Soko Glam

If you ever have any questions about this let me know. Do you have a favorite product that you love using?

Love love LOVE your blog! Would love to see drugstore dupes for high end skin care!

Good suggestion! I’ll try to keep that in consideration when I try/find affordable skin care that reminds me of a more expensive alternative. 

I just bought some Korean gel eye masks, 60 for only $10 so i’ll let you guys know if those are comparable to more pricey eye masks because those can get really expensive..

I know sleeping masks are really popular right now, they’re sort of like ultra hydrating night time moisturizers. I love, love the Origins Drink Up Overnight Mask, leaves my skin SO soft and supple. The CosRx Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask is really similar! CosRx is an affordable Korean brand.

Another favorite product of mine is the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, it just makes your skin look so much better like you just had a facial. Everything is smoother, brighter, any acne I had is much smaller. A similar mini peel mask is the Vichy Double Glow Peeling Mask. Vichy, a french pharmacy brand is now sold at Target and Ulta! This mask is more than 50% less then the Tata Harper version, both chemical exfoliating masks. 

The Loreal Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Extra Dry Skin reminds me a lot of the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream and Belif True Cream Aqua Bomb. All of these moisturizers feel incredibly lightweight and absorb really quickly while still feeling like your skin just drank 3 liters of water. The Loreal Hydra Genius has loads of aloe water and hyaluronic acid, great for all skin types.

Shea Moisture and Physician’s Formula makes a pure Argan Oil for anyone who loves the Josie Maran Argan Oil

1️⃣Anything that strips oils and moisture from our skin. There r two types of dry skin 1. Water dry which is from dehydration 2. Oil dry which is from lack of oils and moisture in our skin.
2️⃣Harsh chemicals from skincare products and makeup also harsh clothes or rubbing and tugging on ur skin.
3️⃣The weather which can be dry or cold and too much sun exposure.
4️⃣Taking long hot showers or contact with hot water in general.
5️⃣Certain medication that causes skin irritation.
6️⃣Dehydration from lack of water and wrong diet, too much intake of oily and junk food.
1️⃣ I’ve mention this before as it’s important but face mists r really important for dry skin as they r light weight.
2️⃣ Humidifier or air purifier will make the the air softer and will get rid of cold dry air maintaining moisture.
3️⃣ Lightweight moisturiser nothing too heavy which will cause the skin to break out of too much products.
4️⃣U will hear this in every skincare tips from everywhere but that’s because it’s the most important thing which is water. Water will omit dehydration, toxins and skin problems.
5️⃣ Using sunscreen as sun can damage skin in many ways also causing dry skin so protect ur skin from the sun.
6️⃣Dry brushing gets rid of flaky skin acts as a exfoliater, and we cannot neglect our lips, elbows and knees they also have to be exfoliated and moisturised.
1️⃣Face mists, hand creams and thick lip balm with spf.
2️⃣ Using oils like rosehip oil, jojoba oil, Shea butter, pomegranate oil and vitamin a and e oils.
3️⃣Thick body balm these r great for the skin and lasts longer that body butter or lotion.
4️⃣Aloe Vera, berries and food with Anita oxidants.
5️⃣ Clinique moisture surge moisturiser
6️⃣The body shop Vitamin E line especially the face mist, wash and moisturiser.
7️⃣Mario bedescu rose or cucumber face mist.
8️⃣Belief true cream aqua bomb
9️⃣Palmers cocoa butter formula( personal favourite).
🔟Jergens wet skin moisturiser
1️⃣Hot showers
2️⃣Sun exposure without spf
3️⃣Petroleum jelly or over moisturising let ur skin breath. Use Shea butter instead of coconut oil.
4️⃣Parabens, mineral oils and sls
5️⃣Alcohol like witch hazel they strip oils from skin
6️⃣Baking soda and lemon ( anything acidic)
These r all the things to consider if u have dry skin, it’s hard going to different websites for different tips so I’ve gathered all at once with my own tips. Be gentle with ur dry skin keep its hydrated and moisturised, have water intake and a good diet for healthier skin!

What do you think about the formulations for Glossiers new body hero stuff?

idk why yall still bother with them but anyways:

Body Hero Daily Oil Wash Ingredients

Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Laureth-3, MIPA-Laureth Sulfate, Laureth-7 Citrate, Parfum/Fragrance, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides Citrate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool

It literally contains only the cheapest oils available and soybean oil is the main ingredient in every baby oil also. This is literally a baby oil wash formula but expensive and in minimalistic packaging. Das Sad. also all those other oils are together max 3% of the whole ting if fragrance is that high up. They probably did that to just put the names up on their “amazing ingredients that this contains uwu” list on their site.

Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream Ingredients

Aqua/Water/Eau, Dimethicone, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, Isononyl Isononanoate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Glycerin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Hydrogenated Olive Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables, Mica, Evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract, Tamarindus Indica Fruit Extract, Alaria Esculenta Extract, Cereus Grandiflorus (Cactus) Flower

this is like… terrible. dimethicone is just a silicone so its just an occlusive it will work the same as vaseline and wont moisturise at all. and the moisturising ingredients after that are the cheapest shit available alsp notable that Isononyl Isononanoate is extremely pore clogging. And again the cheapest pore clogging oils available.

All in all these are worse than the regular ass drugstore formulas for $3 and thats not even hyperbole thats just the truth. Like if youre rich and stupid i get that you will want to spend money on pretty packaged baby oil and jergens lotion.

Is the glossier sunscreen a good one? I’m autistic and hate the feel of the usual creamy thick sunscreens and it seems quite light and gel like but I don’t wanna slap it on if it’s gonna be a bit awful for me. I love ur blog and you’re so lovely! 💕✨ Thank u

It’s good, but I would not recommend it solely based on price per oz. Most people can’t afford it, and if you can afford it, for the price, you could buy a far superior sunscreen. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You’re in luck my dear, because there are many light, gel sunscreens out there that are a fraction of the price (in fact i think most korean sunscreens would be good for you). Some recommendations off the top of my head: Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel, MAKE P:REM Capsule Sun Gel, Innisfree Aqua UV Protection Cream Water Drop


Lafayette was born in the family home, the Château de Chavaniac, in Auvergne. As you can see, both the French and the American flags fly in front of it today. Inside, one of the reception rooms is decorated in pale aqua, cream, and gray, colors I chose completely coincidentally for Peggy and Gil’s master suite in Provoke Outrage, which is, you have to admit, kind of weird. In one of the tower bedrooms, portraits of Washington and Lafayette flank the fireplace. As for the kitchen, I’m glad I don’t have to cook in it. The village was originally named Chavaniac, but it was later changed to Lafayette-Chavaniac in honor of Lafayette.

If you’re reading I Like You a Lot on AO3, I just posted chapter 5, in which Lafayette talks about his castle.

Hello ladies! So, cold has set in and..I am dry. My body lotion (St Ives!) doesn't keep me moisturized, my hair is dry to the max, and I am in woe. I have oily/combo skin and hair..I'll have to switch brands for body lotion but do you all have any drugstore recommendations for facial moisturizer, body lotion, and hair (for my skin type?) Thank y'all in advance!

I know your pain! It’s so hard to stay moisturized in cold weather. Here are some recommendations: 

1. Bath & Body Works “Aromatherapy Energy Body Cream”. Works so well and smells so good. Anytime I use lotion people are always like “What’s that amazing smell?”

2. Belif “The True Cream Aqua Bomb”. I know this is pricey, but it is literally the only moisturizer I can use on my oily ass face. It leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and soft, something that oily skinned people know is RARE. This is worth every fucking penny I swear.

3. SheaMoisture “Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner” and “Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner”. Absolutely AMAZING products that smell so good and keep my hair feeling hella moist. SheaMoisture is my favorite product brand and I cannot recommend them enough.
