Cleanse

Beauty is CONFIDENCE applied directly to the face.

LANEIGE Moist Cream Cleanser | BONIIK

This cleanser works wonders for normal and dry skin types, but it can be used even if you have oily or combination skin thanks to its lightweight formula.Start your skin care routine with a moisturizing cleanser like LANEIGE Moist Cream Cleanser which helps remove excess sebum, impurities and dead cells from your skin whilst keeping it moist. It has a subtle, yet pleasant floral fragrance and lathers easily into soft and rich foam which glides easily onto the skin for better washing and easy rinse-off. Also, using this cleanser regularly can help brighten your skin tone which means goodbye dull face!

For best results, squeeze an adequate amount and sprinkle some water, rub your hands together to create foam, then apply the cleanser to your face in circular motion. Rinse off and pat dry with a clean towel before applying your toner.

 

Exfoliate

Be good to your skin, you’ll wear is every day for the rest of your life.

Did you know that regularly exfoliating your skin can help you achieve your healthy skin goals? Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, white and blackhead, as well as impurities which not only improves your skin’s complexion but also allows other skin care products to penetrate deep into your skin.

Unlike conventional facial scrubs and peeling gel, the NEOGEN Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Pads are a great way to gently exfoliate your skin. It comes in a practical, double sided pad- use the criss-crossed side to exfoliate your skin, followed by the soft side to remove any remaining impurities, and finish the routing by rinsing your face with lukewarm water. The soothing after-effects of the peeling pad leaves your skin revitalized and radiant.

We recommend exfoliating once a week if you have sensitive or thin skin, and twice a week if you have oilier skin or frequently exposed to polluted environments. There are three different types to choose from depending on your skin type and needs: Wine for normal to dry skin, Green Tea for normal to oily or combination skin, and Lemon for brightening. Remember, do not over-exfoliate your skin either! As this may cause irritation, redness and damage.


 

Tone

Bring back the glow in your skin.

To prepare your skin before proceeding with your skin care routine, it is essential to remove dirt and any traces of impurities with a toner. SULWHASOO Bloomstay Vitalizing Water is a lightweight and refreshing toner enriched with green plum blossom and Korean Yuja to rejuvenate, hydrate and tone the skin. Apply the Bloomstay Vitalizing Water after cleansing your face and drying it with a clean towel, gently tap until it is fully absorbed into the skin.

This toner works best for combination skin, but it can be beneficial for other skin types too, because who says your skin cannot benefit from additional moisture?

Hydrate

Taking care of your skin is more important than covering it up.

Serums contain higher concentration of active ingredients and are able to penetrate deep into the different layers of your skin to deliver nutrients and improve your skin’s texture from inside. We use them to target different skin concerns such as wrinkles or dark spots. Serums tend to be more concentrated than essence but less dense than moisturizers, making them suitable during the transition period between winter and spring.

Pamper your skin with SULWHASOO Bloomstay Vitalizing Serum, with potent antioxidants derived from plum blossom to vitalize, brighten and rejuvenate your skin. Its light, watery texture allows for better absorption to effectively deliver the nutrients your skin needs without being too heavy.

 

Rejuvenate

AROMATICA Rose Absolute Eye Cream | Moisturizer | BONIIKThey say that the eyes are the windows to the soul.

Investing in high quality eye cream is important because the skin around your eyes is the thinnest and most delicate. AROMATICA Rose Absolute Eye Cream is formulated using natural, high quality botanical ingredients to protect the skin around your eyes against premature ageing by diminishing fine lines and reducing puffiness to make your eyes look more youthful. With Bulgarian rose oil to strengthen and brighten the under eye area, this eye cream is an essential addition to your spring skin care routine. It has a creamy, light texture that absorbs quickly, and its subtle, yet pleasant smell makes it suitable to pair with any face moisturizer.

Squeeze a small amount on the finger, apply it around the eye area carefully. Avoid pulling and applying too much pressure by tapping in circular motion, instead of rubbing or massaging the eye cream.

 

Moisturize

Gorgeous skin requires commitment and moisturizer.

Now that you have (nearly) completed your spring skin care routine, lock all the moisture in with some moisturizing cream. Because our skin tends to retain more water during the warmer months, you can swap out concentrated moisturizers for lighter ones like the SULWHASOO Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream. This delicate cream is lightly fragrant and packed with powerful anti-oxidants derived from plum blossom to fight signs of skin aging.

The Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream is soft, bouncy and glides easily on to the skin without any greasy, sticky residue. Apply a generous layer of this cream on your face to finish your skin care routine to keep it well hydrated.

We recommend using the entire SULWHASOO Bloomstay line for best results.

Protect

As much as we love the warmer temperatures and sunnier days, it is crucial to step up your sun care routine this spring. Sunscreens like MAKE P:REM UV Defense Me. Blue Ray Sun Gel is a dermatologically tested, versatile sunscreen formulated with minimal ingredients that has a 3-in-1 effect of UV protection, brightening and anti-aging care.

Prior to sun exposure, apply evenly on to your skin, be sure to avoid the eye area. The instant cooling effect lowers your skin’s temperatures to protect it against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
