This is one of Korea’s best-selling products and it is considered a holy grail too many, including me.
The exfoliating ingredient is Brazilian black sugar. Sugar is a really good exfoliator because it melts while you massage you skin. Other ingredient like nut shells is much harsher on the skin and can cause some irritation.
The skincare I learned when I was younger was, cleanse tone and moisturize, that’s it. Nothing more and nothing less. Sometimes I even skipped the toner part due to that I felt more dry (probably used toners with alcohol in. The reason for alcohol in toner was probably due to being afraid of acne and thinking that that would be the solution.. ohhh my how wrong I was.. When I grew older I started using toner without alcohol and an eye cream. The toner I sometimes skipped. This is what I think is most common in the rest of the world (except Asia that is).
