I haven’t tried a lot of Korean skin care just because the shipping time and cost to Canada is not worth the frustration a lot of the time, but there are a few products I do like. It’s mostly more masks because I struggle enough to commit to a three step routine at night, let alone their crazy 13 step routines. :p 

 

Really enjoy these masks from Too Cool for School.

Innisfree is another sheet mask brand I like- they’re almost creamy? And very moisturizing. 

 

Elizavecca is a brand I recommend avoiding. Their two most popular products, the hell pore mask and the bubble mask, broke me out and dried out my skin. 

 

I love belif’s moisturizers but they are pricey, and everyboulevard actually recommended me a drug store dupe that I plan on picking up once I’m through my current tub. 

 

I like Laniege as well for their serums and moisturizers, but again, are quite pricey. Their berry yogurt mask is also a favourite of mine. 

 

This got longer than I expected, I didn’t realize how many Korean brands I had tried. :rofl:

I have no idea what that means!

edit: Googled it and it’s a Sephora user? But it’s not me! 

 

Second edit: If you are looking to build a skincare routine, The Ordinary has some good products for a very good price. It’s a Canadian brand, and I’ve used their hyaluronic acid, and lactic acids.

Haha, yes! I was wondering because she says she is from Canada and reviewed one of the products you linked.

 

Thank you again for the tip! The skincare world can be very overwhelming!

With very sweaty summer days,  I've had some success using a small towel, drenched in water to periodically wipe down my face and chest to prevent clogs.   I have a small container of non-comedogenic cream moisturizer just in case.

 

Then, when I'm back in my car or in an air conditioned area, I use a Cetaphil sensitive skin wipe.  These are labeled non-comedogenic and have no fragrance.  They do, however, have some alcohol which can be drying if used repeatedly.  I personally have not used more than 1 wipe a day, and I might use 2 next time.

I do not recommend wipes with salyctic acid if you are using a retiniod and Benzyl Perioxide.  It is irritating, it smells, there is fragrance, and I haven't seen a single brand that passes the non-comedogenic regulations by the gov't.

 

For me:

 

-Also, the use of Benzyl Peroxide facial washes- probably better to use it at night everyday and make morning use conditional.   Also, sweating in the middle of the day- perhaps use a BP wash for an additional wash and not use it again at night.

 

-the use of towels- make sure they are non-bristle and gentle for your skin or they will over-exfoliate and lead to irritation.

My review of the Cetaphil wipes after using them all summer:

 

- They helped kill some bacteria and prevent breakouts with "mild" sweating and humidity

 

-However, at high humidity levels, heavy sweating, and beaches, they are less than adequate.  Nevertheless they are better than nothing and are not irritating.

I think you should start with using basic skincare, like a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. If you really want something fancy to spruce up your routine then you can maybe add a hydrating toner like soon jung water toner or Hada Labo. If you don't have access to korean skincare then you can use the HA serum from the Ordinary. I would also recommend taking collagen supplements. Theyre great from improving skin texture and elasticity especially if youre in your late thirties. I take ones from
