The Korean skincare ritual is one of the most refined beauty rituals that is currently trending and is based on the principle of layering. This is a concept that consists of applying “layers” of products in succession, in a specific order, to reveal the skin’s radiance. The Korean skincare ritual has been passed down through generations for thousands of years. And if followed to the letter, you can easily achieve the perfect skin. And Erborian – the French-Korean skincare brand, has simplified this sophisticated ritual for us, into a no-hassle three steps routine.
Erborian, whose products are available at Sephora, is known to combine the most urbane Korean technologies with high-quality ingredients derived mostly from herbs found in traditional Korean medicine (and we know how good these herbs can be). The products have been made to enable you (skincare junky or not) achieve your own perfect skin, simply and differently.

“Double cleansing” is the first step in the Korean skincare ritual, and is key for removing impurities and debris from the skin. This usually involves cleansing with an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup and is followed up with a water-based cleanser to remove residue. The Erborian Black Cleansing Oil combines the Korean cleansing technique with Charcoal, known for its purifying properties, to remove the said impurities and excess sebum.

“Double hydration” is the next step in the ritual, and it helps to treat the skin according to its needs. Here you boost the skin with a lotion or serum to replenish your skin with moisture and then apply a cream to hold in the moisture. Like an ice-cold waterfall, the Bamboo Crème Frappée invigorates the skin. It is immediately absorbed, replenishing the skin with moisture, which results in a more hydrated, energized and plump skin all day.
