Nowadays, K-Beauty aka South Korean beauty and skin care products are the well-known name among the worldwide beauty enthusiasts. K-beauty is all about natural ingredients to treat the skin and give the ultimate glow to the skin without any makeup. Target has introduced K-beauty products in their Glow Studio by the seasoned K-Beauty experts at Glow Recipe.
I tried the Glo Studio Hydrated Glow K-Beauty Routine Kit from Target. It is a trial kit size, 5.1 oz. for $13.79. It includes: the makeup melting Make P:rem Black Cleansing Water, the soothing Whamisa by Glow Recipe Green Tea Serum Toner, the hydrating Make P:rem Micro Tension Cream, and the innovative Make P:rem’s In-Shower Face Pack. The full-size products are available in the store and Target website. They have Glow Studio Youthful Glow K-Beauty Routine Kit – 3.8oz for the sensitive and mature skin and Glow Studio Oil Be Gone K-Beauty Routine Kit for oily skin type.
Let’s talk about the products now. I purchased the kit from my local Target store. And believe me, the products have delivered the results as they claim to be. Just after one use of these products, I got the glow like I just had a salon facial. I simply followed the steps as the box said, and instantly see the difference. My skin got super hydrated and insanely glowy. So, here comes the product descriptions and how to use them:
Step 1: This black cleansing water is a great cleanser, I used it in the morning. And it literally pulled all the oil around my t-zone and some makeup residue from my face. I will definitely buy the full size.
Sweep a cotton pad soaked in the Black Cleansing Water over the skin or hold a soaked cotton pad to areas in need of point makeup removal for 15-20 seconds to dissolve and sweep it away. Follow with regular skincare or a foaming cleanser for a more thorough cleanse. Use AM and PM.
Step 2: This serum toner is the first product in this routine that gives the actual glow to my skin. It’s very hydrating, it can be used alone to prep up the skin before applying makeup.
Dispense the Green Tea Serum Toner into palms and gently pat onto face. Repeat as needed for extra hydration. Use AM and PM.
Step 3: So, now comes the moisturizer, and it is a super hydrating moisturizer as I expected from the box. I think it is a great moisturizer for dry and dry combination skin type.
Warm a dime-sized amount of the Micro Tension Cream between palms and press into skin. Continue patting to ensure absorption and lock in hydration. Use AM and PM.
I am always in search of the in-shower products. It’s easy and time saving. Use the In-Shower Face Pack for a boost of hydration when skin is feeling extra dry and tired. After cleansing in the shower, spread a thin layer of the mask all over face like a moisturizing cream, avoiding eyes and mouth. Leave on for the duration of your shower (15~20 minutes), rinsing off before drying off. Follow up with your regular skincare after the shower. Use AM or PM, 1~3 times a week.
This skincare routine will be very useful in the dry winter days. And this trial size kit is definitely helpful to decide what product to buy. I will definitely purchase the Green Tea Serum Toner and the Cleansing water in full size. Hope you like my review on this K-Beauty skin care routine.
