My Korean Skincare Routine: Protect

February 12, 2023

The last two products in my Korean skincare routine as layed out here on Soko Glam are moisturizer and sunscreen: the protectors that seal in the moisture and goodies from the nourishing steps, and prevent further damage from the elements. There are a couple of products that I will make another post about because my routines differ between morning and night.


I originally had been using the moisturizer from Cerave, but switched to The Ordinary when they started making the bottles significantly smaller. It has a lot of similar ingredients to Cerave, including ceramides.

I have never had many issues with moisturizers, as long as they are fragrance-free, and, essentially, a basic lotion that doesn't clog my pores. Cerave was originally introduced to me by my family physician after I had some issues with using a face oil as a moisturizer, so I continue to stay away from those kinds of products.


Sunscreen was a difficult thing for me to find, but after some searching, I settled with Play Everyday Lotion from Supergoop. I originally tried a tinted formula and it left a film on my face that I didn't like. It's hard to find something that doesn't leave either a thick white film that pills, or a greasy film, and so I chose to go with the greasy film. 

I will say that I am very happy with this sunscreen, and while I tend to have a little bit of a shine from it, it does soak nicely into my skin, and I have not been irritated by it at all.
