Korean Beauty Skincare Routine with LANEIGE

This post was created in partnership with LANEIGE as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.

Laneige beauty skincare products

Korean beauty (K-beauty) has become very popular and we are seeing more Korean products appear in stores many of us shop at every day.  For example, Target now carries LANEIGE, an award-winning global beauty brand that uses cutting edge technology and natural botanicals.  The LANEIGE line has products to address a wide range of skincare concerns.  A traditional Korean beauty routine emphasizes giving skin the time and care it deserves.  Following a Korean regimen can lead to healthier and more radiant skin.

Some traditional K-beauty routines consist of 10 steps!  I know what you are thinking…that’s just too much time to invest and too many products to buy.  Using LANEIGE products, the Korean beauty routine can be simplified and still yield the same benefits as routines that may utilize more steps and  products.  Also, LANEIGE is truly an affordable brand.  Purchasing a collection of products won’t set you back like it might with other luxury skincare lines.

I am going to share a simple regimen using the “Power of 7” products from LANEIGE.  They have perfected the K-beauty routine with these products and you guessed it, the routine contains just 7 products!   Some are used in the morning and some are used in the evening.  I think you will find this to be a simple routine that is easy to follow using beautifully packaged products that produce noticeable and desirable results.

The LANEIGE KOREAN BEAUTY ROUTINE

Step 1 – Cleanse

Begin with cleansing your skin using the LANEIGE Multi Cleanser.  This cleanser gently exfoliates the skin and removes impurities using papaya extract.  I enjoy using this cleanser in the morning and evening and it does an excellent job removing makeup, sunscreen and waterproof mascara.  Only a small amount is needed and the cleanser creates a gentle lather that rinses off with no residue left behind.

Step 2 – Clarify

After cleansing, the next step is to clarify the skin.  This is a quick and simple step that may not be a part of your routine today but is highly beneficial to introduce into your daily skincare regimen.  The LANEIGE Power Essential Skin Toner is made with optimal Mineral Water and retains your skin’s ideal moisture level.  The toner also contains Vitamin B3 which facilitates active cell turnover to promote brighter and more supple skin.  The Power Essential Skin Toner is unscented and dries quickly leaving no sticky or oily feeling behind.  This toner has mild exfoliation properties as well.

Step 3 – Balance

The next step is an important one and that is to balance the skin to  brighten dull and uneven skin.  Bright Renew Emulsion uses LANEIGE’s Melacrusher™ technology which combines truffle yeast and green tea which are both powerful antioxidants.  Green Tea also helps moisturize the skin.  With regular use of the Bright Renew Emulsion, you should begin to notice a more even skin tone and a brighter complexion.  This light moisturizer is perfect for day time and has an extremely mild and fresh scent.

Step 4 – Treat

Now, it’s time for my favorite step of the routine which is the treatment step.  I really enjoy using skin serums.  The Bright Renew Original Serum is light and milky and has a mild scent similar to the product used in Step 3.   This serum is a high performing, intensive treatment product formulated to visibly illuminate and improve skin clarity.  Also, leveraging the Melacrusher™ technology, the Bright Renew Original Serum creates a dewy glow and luminosity.  I noticed this within a few days of using the product.  If you are looking for noticeable changes early in the routine, this is definitely a step you don’t want to sacrifice!

Step 5 – Moisturize

Another important step in any skincare routine is using a good moisturizer.  Moisturized skin will appear more youthful and supple and not all moisturizers are created equal.  Bright Renew Original Cream is an intense moisturizer that feels smooth on the skin.  If you haven’t noticed by now, the LANEIGE regimen focuses intensely on brightening and adding radiance to your skin.  This moisturizer also helps even out your skin tone using the Melacrusher™ technology.  It hydrates  through out the day and is a beautiful base that will also help your makeup stay on longer and apply more evenly.

Step 6 – Revive

Reviving your skin is an easy step because it can happen while you sleep!  The Water Sleeping Mask is designed to infuse your skin with moisture during the night so you wake up with soft and glowy skin.  I enjoy this mask a lot because I don’t have to remove it and I definitely notice my skin is more hydrated in the morning.   The Water Sleeping Mask smells beautiful and is infused with orange flower, rose, and sandalwood.  Hunza Apricot and Evening Primose extracts brighten and clarify the skin while you sleep.  This is a beautiful product that you will likely fall in love with it just as I did.

Step 7 – Protect

The final and very important step is to protect your skin.   It is essential that you use a minimum of SPF 30 during daylight hours.  If you are skipping protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, you will pay the price later.  Sun damage is extremely hard to reverse and ages you more quickly than you can imagine!

LANEIGE has a 5-in-1 BB Cushion that provides buildable coverage with SPF 50+.  I’m very particular about coverage and I’m very pleased with how the BB Cushion performs.  It provides light to medium coverage which can be intensified using a full coverage powder.  The BB Cushion leaves skin very even toned with a dewy and radiant finish.  It’s almost hard to believe that it provides SPF 50+ considering how light it feels on the skin.  I set mine with a translucent powder and achieve all day wear with this product.  It’s also formulated with mineral water and continues to hydrate your skin through out the day.  It’s no wonder why this is a best-seller in the LANEIGE product line.

So, there you have it!  A 7-step Korean beauty routine to help transform your skin and introduce the radiance and brightness every woman or man would want!  I love this line because they use natural ingredients and their products are affordable and effective.  As I tried all the products in the ‘Power of 7’ routine, I found several favorites and I’m absolutely in love with the BB Cushion.

  1. I read every post you publish. I never comment because I would be the only male. I have to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I wish you posted everyday. No pressure. You are such a beautiful woman and I was looking at your photos and I finally thought I just have to tell her. Thank you for sharing. You really are a true beauty.

    1. There are quite a few males that visit the site but they don’t always leave appropriate comments! I’m really glad you enjoy the blog. I wish I could post everyday too but I work full-time outside my home so I only work on my blog at night and on the weekends. Even then, it’s hard to keep up. I always feel one step behind. =) I genuinely appreciate your comments and the lovely compliments. Thank you so much! You made my day!

  2. This is such a beautiful article. Your photos are so pretty. I’d like to try this line. I have seen it in Target. If I bought just 2 or 3 items what would you suggest.

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the article! My hubby took most of the pics so he gets all the credit. =) Hmmm, what would I suggest if you were just going to pick up a 2 or 3 items. Oh that is a hard question. First of all, if you like wearing foundation, I thought the BB Cushion was GREAT. It provided beautiful coverage and a really nice finish on the skin plus SPF 50. Now, that’s seriously great. On the skin care side, I would suggest the serum because it is highly effective and you get the brightening from that. And one of the moisturizers. There is the emulsion and the original cream. If you’d like a lighter moisturizer, the emulsion would be good. Something a bit richer, the cream. I hope that helps?

    1. It’s funny because I saw the product so many times at Target and I didn’t try it until now. I really should have! I just put the sleeping mask on and await extra hydration in the morning! My skin is a mess from surgery because I went so long without using all my regular products. The brand is also a good value.

  3. Great review comma I have not gotten around to trying this line yet but have been trying other several Korean beauty lines recently. These items sounds pretty nice, I will have to try these next.

    1. I had not tried Laneige either! Up until just recently. I am disappointed I didn’t because they were at Target and I could have easily bought few and I didn’t. I’m at Target 3x a week. LOL So….. I’m really happy I participated in this campaign because they are definitely gorgeous products and at really good prices. Bloggers learn too! =)
