Korean skincare routine on a budget

A full Korean skincare routine doesn’t have to be super expensive. I am always that type of person that looks for a cheap alternative, but still looking for great products. My financial situation isn’t great so I really can’t afford very expensive skincare.

So these are my tips for really nice and great skincare products on a budget. If you are completely new to this type of routine I would not start with all the products in a full routine at once. Instead start with a cleanser, toner, one serum and a moisturizer. Then when your skin is getting used to the products you add more until you have a routine that suits you.

    Hi, thanks for this list of K-Beauty products. Do you know the Korean brands Urang and Sandawha? Just curious if you had tried products from them.

      Hi Anna
      You are welcome.
      I have not tried any of the brands you suggested yet. There is too little time:-) I hope I will in the future thought.
