My Mom’s Korean Skincare Routine (Anti-Aging)
It’s me, Joan.
Today, I’ll be sharing my mom’s skincare routine.
My mom is currently applying makeup because she’s too shy to share her bare face.
But since I’ve shared my bare face many times on this channel, I’ll be removing my makeup to try her products.
Alright! Mom, join me when you are ready.
If you are done with your makeup.
Since I have bangs, I’m going to use my hair roller to get the hair out of my face.
I’m Joan’s mom.
This is Mamonde’s oil to foam cleanser.
My mom is very lazy when it comes to skincare.
She likes to cut down her routines.
Even though the double cleansing method is popular in Korea, my mom likes to use one product.
Oil to foam.
And since she likes floral scents, she likes using Mamonde products like this one.
All you need is one pump
I, also really like this product!
It removes makeup!
But what about your eye makeup?
Just like this?
For this product, after you apply it on dry face, you have to emulsify. Wet hands and massage before completely rinsing it off.
That’s why my mom likes this product.
One product & done!
But for my eye makeup, I’m going to use my lip & eye because my eye makeup is still there.
How can you just use this cleanser to remove eye makeup?
I’m going to use my product.
*not filmed, but I used Aritaum’s lip & eye remover*
But it works for me.
It’s cause you don’t wear mascara!
I use waterproof mascara so this just isn’t enough.
Yeah, you are right. I don’t use mascara.
That’s why it’s possible for you to use one product to remove your makeup.
I start with skin (aka toner).
My mom loves Sulwhasoo products.
Whenever I run out, she gets me a new one and places it on my vanity.
You’ve tried many different Sulwhasoo lines. What’s this?
Concentrated Ginseng line!
How is this one?
When you apply it, you’ll feel how silky the texture is.
Oh, it does!
It’s very silky & it feels very “chok chok”
(aka: moist and luminous skin complexion)
Please share why skin type you have!
It’s extremely dry.
E X T R E M E L Y
It’s very sensitive.
My mom’s skin will react immediately when a product doesn’t work with her skin type. It turns RED!
And one of those products…
The most problematic product for my skin is…
The most problematic product for my skin is… SUNBLOCK!
Sunscreen! My mom is allergic to sunscreen.
How did you live in California without sunscreen?
That’s why I had a lot of dark spots/melasma.
Yeah, she had a lot of dark spots!
But when she moved to Korea, it got a lot better.
Can you share your secret??
How did it clear up?
Well, there’s really only one way…
I went to the dermatologist and had 10 laser treatments.
I noticed that the dark spots faded after going.
Yeah, I remember after not seeing you for a while, I noticed that your skin got so much better.
And after those treatments, you started to use a lot of Sulwhasoo products.
Wow! My skin feels very~ chok chok!
Next is a product that women my age NEED!
This serum helps firm the skin
And it has a bit of a brightening effect
Yes, very important to my mom.
My mom is old!
Yeah, I’m over 50! Of course I’m old!
But this is a product that I use as well. It was so nice, I had to have my mom try it as well.
The scent of sulwhasoo products feel healthy.
Yeah, it’s called “han bang”, right?
This is very “chok chok chok”
My mom really likes products that are “chok chok”.
Yeah, my face hurts when it’s dry.
Yeah, dry skin is painful.
I have to use products that provide moisture.
Wow this smells very “han bang”.
I love the scent.
It is very “chok chok chok” as you mentioned.
I feel like I can stop here.
Yeah, you can.
At your age, you can stop here.
But for me, my age… over 50s,
We can’t forget eye cream!
I started using this one and it surprised me. It’s a great eye cream.
Right?! Soo good!
Eye creams help with wrinkles around the eyes and I like to apply on my smile lines as well.
Yes, smile lines and even on my forehead.
This feels so good.
It’s even more moisturizing, right?
Yeah, I fell in love with this eye cream, I wanted to know my mom’s thought and she seems to like it as well.
Yes, I am gratefully using it.
But the scent…
You like floral scents, but I don’t like it in my skincare so I wasn’t a fan when I first tried it, but
the fragrance fades away so I don’t mind it as much. It’s bearable.
*struggling to say “bearable” lol*
Okay, so what’s your last step?
This is a major part of my skincare routine. I need this.
My skin needs this to “sleep” and
I need this to sleep in peace.
I like that!
And this cream in particular is my mom’s favorite Sulwhasoo product.
Wow! Looking up close, I achieved that popular
“HONEY SKIN” look.
This is great!
Yeah, my mom’s “best item”.
So this is actually everything I use!
In Korea, the 10 step skincare routine is really popular.
But my mom used one product to cleanse instead of 2
And you only followed up with 5 more products!
You really cut the routine down in half!
Yeah, I can use any more products than that!
~I mean, she can’t even use sunscreen~
Mom: Otherwise, my skin will react and look RED!
J: What do you do when that happens? Product recs?
I mean, there aren’t really products that can help.
I go to a pharmacy and ask for a cream for my rashes and skin reactions.
This is what it looks like.
You don’t have to share that. It can be any healing cream from the pharmacy.
Yes and my mom also uses sheet masks when her skin reacts.
Especially when my skin hurts, I like using a sheet mask.
This is a sheet mask that I recommended to her and ever since, it’s her go-to!
We always pack them when we travel
+ keep them in our fridge!
All the products that we showed in today’s video will be linked in the description box!
And if you guys want to see my mom again on my channel,
Please give this video a thumbs up!
We will film a get ready with me if we hit 3,000 likes!
5,000? 5,000? I don’t think we’ll be filming one then lol
Have a joan (good) night!
See you again soon!
