Here are the best Korean beauty products for moms:

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair New Science Activator Ampoule

“This makes my skin soft and rejuvenated when I wake up in the morning,” says Jenny Ha, the mother of our operations manager, Angela.

I loved using this when I visited my daughter in NYC last December,” says Jim Lee, the mother of  Soko Glam’s social media editor, Jisoo. “I have really dry skin, so this helped hydrate my skin and reduce my wrinkles as well!”

Son & Park Beauty Water

“When my daughter brought this home for me to try I didn’t think it would do too much,” admits Donna Jacques, the mother of The Klog’s digital content editor, Renee. “But then I realized it’s one of the best makeup removers out there. It gets rid of my waterproof liner and conditions my skin at the same time.”

Erborian Dong Baek Camellia Essence

Li Wang, the mother of Soko Glam’s senior marketing manager, Diana Xiao, relies on this oil. “I’ve always made sure to keep my skin hydrated but now that I’m older, I’ve fallen in love with face oils,” she says. “I can’t go a day without them. I love that the camellia oil by Erborian is a dry oil so it nourishes my skin without an oily residue.”

Neogen Day-Light Protection Sun Screen

Charlotte Cho’s mom, Judy Lee, can’t get enough of this Neogen sunscreen’s fragrance. “The fragrance is not what you would expect a sunscreen to smell like, and it’s so invigorating and therapeutic that it makes me feel like I’m at the spa,” she says. “I’ve never felt this way about a sunscreen before and the fact that I enjoy putting this on makes a huge difference since I use it every day at the end of my skin care routine.”

And Soko Glam’s senior designer Chanel Lai’s mom, Kitty, has a stash of ten of these Neogen sunscreens at home. “Sunscreens typically make my skin feel very greasy, but this Neogen one is moisturizing and absorbs quickly and leaves my face soft, and most importantly, not oily.

Erborian Elixir Au Ginseng

“This is my new favorite serum to use at night,” says Meegyeong Park, the mother of our digital content and marketing associate, Tina Cho. “I love the subtle scent, and after a few days, I noticed that my fine lines were less visible.”

Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream

Our operations employee Margaret Brennan’s grandmother is totally obsessed with this moisturizer. “I love this cream so much! I use it every night before bed, and my skin is always brighter and moisturized when I wake up—it smells amazing, too,” says Doris, AKA “Dackie.” 

Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil

I love using the Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil when I wash my face to remove all of my makeup at the end of the day,” says Bernadette Almonte, the mother of our brand & communications manager, Christine. “It feels relaxing when I massage it onto my skin, and it has a light fragrance that makes my nightly cleanse therapeutic when I am winding down after a long day. When I’m done cleaning my face, my skin feels baby-soft and fresh.”
