Have you heard? Soko Glam just opened a pop-up shop in New York City for the summer. Learn more about the experience, plus what The Klog team will be stocking up on in-store below!
If you love K-beauty and will be in New York City this summer, you’re in luck. Soko Glam has opened Soko House, an expansive pop-up shop where you’ll be able to touch, try, and purchase all of its 4+ star-rated products.
The space is a total playground for skin care lovers. In addition to two floors worth of products to browse, you can hang out in the Soko Sanctuary where you can get personalized skin care advice from the Soko Concierge and try on products in private skin fitting rooms.
And if you make a purchase of $35 or more, you’ll go home with the Klog Zine, a skin care guidebook created by us! More on that here.
Ever since getting a sneak preview earlier this week, we’ve been plotting what we’re going to buy. Read on to see what’s on the top of our shopping lists.
“I love how lightweight this mask is! Most sleeping packs are too heavy and weigh down my skin. And I always see a noticeable difference when I wake up in the morning.” – Marissa Louie, associate manager, social media
“I recently discovered PHAs (polyhydroxy acids) and they are a great alternative to AHAs for those who, like me, love to use chemical exfoliants but have sensitive skin. This cleansing balm contains PHAs, in addition to non-pore-clogging oils – great for the summer when I’m more prone to breakouts.” – Sarah Ferguson, content manager
“Shade #6 is a must have for me this summer. Blush is by far my favorite makeup product, and I really prefer buildable liquids to powders, because they blend in so seamlessly with your skin, and this one is pigmented enough to actually show up on my skin. Plus, it smells amazing, and it’s super small so I can take it on the go to reapply throughout the day.” – Trishna Rikhy, editorial intern
“This shampoo makes my hair feel super soft and full. And as a fun unexpected bonus, it leaves my scalp with the same tingling sensation of chewing mint gum + drinking cold water. Why? Salicylic acid and zinc pyrithione get rid of dandruff and improve general scalp health!” – Marissa
“If you’re a fan of YouTube vlogger Joan Kim, you know how much work she put into creating this duo cream, a collaboration with K-beauty brand Neogen. The two formulas – one for the morning and one for the evening – perfectly complement each other and are formulated with thoughtful touches like lavender oil to promote relaxation and a good night’s sleep. Plus, having two products in one tub is super convenient. I plan on bringing this on all of my summer travels.” – Sarah
“I have oily skin, and oil cleansing is a daunting but essential part of my skin care routine to control oil production. This oil cleanser is formulated to control sebum throughout the day, so I definitely need to try it and give my pores a break!” – Trishna
“I co-hosted one of Soko Glam’s curations videos back in April (watch it here!) and had the chance to test this toner in preparation for it. Sadly I had to give it back after the video shoot, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. It’s super nourishing and feels like it’s actually doing something for my skin, unlike other more watery toners I’ve tried. I can’t wait to make this a staple in my daily routine!” – Sarah
“This product is my ride or die for life. It has deceptively simple packaging but is the best water-based cleanser I’ve ever used. It smells SO good and lathers like a dream. Just trust me on this one.” – Marissa
“In this summer weather, I find myself wanting to blot more and more throughout the day, so I would be going through blotting sheet packets really fast. This would definitely be more practical, because it’s a solid powder with a cushion applicator, so I can go back to being matte with none of the hassle of oily sheets.” – Trishna
