Korean skin therapy with Erborian

Erborian Korean skincare

I’ve been a fan of Erborian’s skincare products for a while now, so when I was given the opportunity to try a few new products I just had to say YES! Korean skincare is having a bit of a moment right now, but regardless I really do feel that Korean skincare products are really great, especially if you enjoy an elaborate skincare routine like I do!

I’ve got a cleanser, moisturiser and mask to share with you today and I have to admit they’re all firm favourites of mine now, and have a permanent place in my skincare routine.

Erborian Black cleansing oil

Black Cleansing Oil

I love a good cleansing oil, they’re great for gently removing impurities, excess sebum and any makeup you haven’t managed to get off with a micellar water. This one includes charcoal, giving it its black appearance, and when you apply it to damp skin and massage it in it gently lathers and has a silky texture, which is really luxurious.

I’ve been using this for a good couple of weeks now, and I’m smitten with it! I use it day and night on its own, or with a balm cleanser afterwards for an extra deep clean. It’s been really great for removing those stubborn bits of makeup and my skin feels really lovely after removing it with a damp muslin cloth and patting my skin dry.

Erborian Bamboo moisturiser

Bamboo Crème Frappee

This has a sorbet texture to it, so I tend to only use it at night as I feel applying makeup over the top may not go so well! When I do use it, it sinks into my skin nicely and feels really refreshing and hydrating. It is a bit annoying that this comes in a pot, as it does make it tricky to get the product out and I’m not a fan of dipping my fingers into pots to get the product out. But, that said, the moisturiser itself is really lovely so I will still use it nightly.

Bamboo Waterlock face mask

As you can see in the images above, this has a gel texture to it, so it’s one I tend to apply just before bed so it can sink in overnight or when I’m planning on spending the next couple of hours relaxing in my bedroom. I’ve found that applying a thin layer of this is best, and if you leave it on overnight you really do wake up with plump, hydrated skin.

As the texture is gel-like, getting it out of the pot can be a bit tricky, and I kind if wish this came in a pump bottle so I could easily pump it into my hand before applying all over my face.

I don’t use this as regularly as the other two products, but I will be using it when my skin needs an extra hit of hydration.
