The Korean 10 step skincare Routine
- Oil Cleanser – Removes sunscreen, makeup, pollution, dirt & oil based products.
- Water/foam Cleanser – Removes sweat, dirt and so on.
- Exfoliate – To clean pores this can be everyday or as little once a week depending on your skin type.
- Toner – To hydrate and balance levels as skin is fragile after cleansing.
- Essence – This step helps in cell turnover and hydrates the skin.
- Serum/Ampoules/boosters – sometimes like the mask you may want to use more than one as there are different types as they will treat problem areas.
- Sheet Mask – Infuses your skin with concentrated essence (you can also multi-mask by doing lip and eye masks under the sheet mask or do one after the other).
- Eye cream – Hydrates & prevents puffiness, dark circles and the evil crows feet.
- Moisturiser – Will seal in all that moisture goodness from the products used to smooth and plump your skin.
- Sunscreen – Protects your precious skin from harmful UV rays.

When Mel (Boxession’s Founder) told me I was going to receive some products from BitsAndBobsOfBeauty I was ecstatic and immediately stopped using my skincare products. I wanted to see how well these products would work and omg they have been a god send as I had a massive pimple under the skin that was refusing to go away; but after one day the spot had come to a head. I feel my skin looks and feels more pampered than before. I was already a big 10 step fan but using all Korean brands have just improved the results 10 fold. The balm cleanser is definitely a must buy and also Bits and Bobs of Beauty increased our 15% discount code to a 20% off discount code (BOX20).
Thank you for reading my review and happy shopping because surely you will be heading over to Bits and Bobs of Beauty to stock up on some Korean Skincare Products.
