The Korean skincare routine is something that's often talked about and many swear by. It's usually ten steps, but it really boils down to your skin type and its needs. The routine shouldn't take longer than ten minutes unless you're using a sheet mask or something along those lines. I do have a few objections because I'm a jerk. This routine is based upon layering. What that means is that you're basically going to apply your pro If you love skincare like I do, this book may prove to be helpful.
What that means is that you're basically going to apply your products from thinnest to thickest consistency so that everything gets locked in. This is supposed to make the the skin absorb everything more effectively. My main problem with this is just personal preference.
I have extremely dry skin, but layering so many products on top of each other makes my skin feel heavy and tacky to the touch. By the time you're ready for SPF, you look plain greasy. The same applies for my PM routine. I am still going to try and implement an essence into my routine and see how I like it. They're currently having their April sale, which I've been waiting for since the November sale because I'm weird.
My other reason for not loving this is because of the misleading title. I feel it's more about Cho's life than about her actually talking about skincare.
Anyone who knows me knows I can't stand autobiographies. This is kind of worse because on top of that, there's barely a chapter that doesn't scream Korean patriotism. To end on a happy note, I liked learning more about some key ingredients. The information on acids a current interest and sunscreen are useful.
It's very intimate for a skincare book, but you can't have everything. View 2 comments. Feb 26, Carlie K rated it liked it Shelves: Since it was described as a coffee table book, I expected it to be fun, entertaining and beautiful instead of super informational. I guess this is why I wasn't disappoi 3. I guess this is why I wasn't disappointed in it. Divided into various chapters which each focuses on one skin care step, like double-cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing and sunscreen etc.
The information is pretty sufficient and it encourages me to find out more about this topic. I really love how the author includes her own relating stories which make the book more personal and interesting. It's like you're learning tips from your dear friend! Another thing I really like about this book is its cute layout!
Especially those adorable illustrations at the beginning of each chapter see the example in the feature picture on top. They are so cute that they make the whole reading experience more enjoyable. Jan 09, Janet rated it really liked it Shelves: I am a big fan of Korean dramas and Kpop and wondered how Koreans have such flawless skin. So when I saw this book in the library catalog I knew I had to check it out. Charlotte Cho tells her personal story of growing up Korean-American in California.
She neglected skin care in her youth and didn't give much thought to using sunscreen. A job opportunity took her to South Korea where she discovered the cultural obsession with looking good. Her co-workers and friends gave her advice on skin care a I am a big fan of Korean dramas and Kpop and wondered how Koreans have such flawless skin. Her co-workers and friends gave her advice on skin care after teasing her a bit.
Now back in the US, she runs Soko Glam with her husband. I agree that Americans have a relaxed and unhealthy attitude towards skin care. We are obsessed with getting a tan, even though science has shown it can give you cancer.
And most skin care products in the US are limited to acne treatments for teenagers and to anti-aging creams for older women and little to nothing for men.
Cho provides advice to care for your skin and which ingredients to avoid. Throughout the book she mentions her favorite brands and products. Some of the products are hard to find in the US so most Americans will have to settle for downloading them online.
She also provides a mini Seoul travel guide in the last chapter.
Overall, a great read for fans of Korean culture or anyone interested in taking better care of their skin. Maybe more on the 3. Lots of useful information told in a really friendly and personal tone although I don't think this should have been labelled as a skin care book specifically.
Theres a lot of stuff unrelated to skincare in this - which wasn't unwelcomed but the title is kinda misleading. Also didn't love the formatting of a few pages where paragraphs would be interrupted.
Feb 17, jess added it Shelves: I'm obsessed with Korean beauty secrets. Who are you to judge me? This book is fine. It's a little basic if you have read a lot of kbeauty blogs, but the information is good and the delivery style is like hanging out with a cool friend.

La segunda mitad del fue terrible para mi piel grasa y con tendencia al acne. Me llene de espinillas en la frente y puntos negros en la nariz. Ahorita ya tengo eso controlado pero me quedaron unas marquitas feas y ahi es donde entra mi interes por la K-beauty.

At the same time, there were parts that I found completely useless.
Sep 01, Mariana Quesada rated it it was amazing Shelves: Who would have thought I'd give 5 stars to a book about skin care!? But wow this was so helpful and eye opening. It not only tells you what's good for your skin health but also why. So you can comprehend better the reason for all those products out there and use them properly.
This book targeted all my fear and doubts of using so many different labeled products and now I can walk into a store confidently knowing what I'm looking for! With the knowledge of an expert and voice of a trusted friend, Charlotte's personal tour through Korean beauty culture will help you find joy in the everyday beauty routines that will transform your skin.
