5 Step Saranghae Skin Care Review


I was gifted a 5 step skincare set from Saranghae. I have been using is for months (started at the end of May) and I am loving the results and genuinely look forward to washing my face at the end of each day! I’ve been trying to slowly phase out many of my beauty, household, and food products that have unnecessary chemicals and crap in them. Using products that have natural ingredients in them is very important to me. So when Saranghae approached me and I did some research on the company, it was a no brainer! Saranghae is a Korean skincare line (it actually means “I love you” in Korean) that focuses on natural ingredients.

The 5-Step program consists of a cleanser, serum, face cream, eye cream and a face mask (for weekly use). Their products are plant based, vegan, and cruelty free, meaning no testing on animals! Their products are made with good for you ingredients like Green Tea extract.

The cleanser is probably my favorite of the products, it has Truffle Extract & Gold. Yes, gold! You can see little speckles all throughout the product.This unique cleansing formula combines the deep pore cleansing power of an oil cleanser with the effective make-up removal of a foam cleanser. The cleanser smells so good and really does a great job of removing all the dirt and makeup. My face truly feels clean after I use it. The eye cream is also a great product and one of my faves. The container size is very generous and you barely need a full pump to cover necessary areas, so it’ll last a while!

My skin feels more hydrated, brighter, and overall just much better. It is so nice to finally have a skin care system that is easy, effective and plant based.

The 5 steps of the Saranghae Skin Care Routine:

1. Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser (daily)
2. Deep Radiance Essence + Serum (daily)
3. Firm & Life Regeneration Cream (daily)
4. Focus Renewal Eye Cream (daily)
5. Elemental Essence Mask (weekly or as needed)

This 5 step skin care regimen is worth every penny. I definitely do not believe in endorsing a product that I don’t believe in. I used to break out far more often than I do now (I’ve only had two breakouts since May, which I attribute to hormonal imbalance due to my thyroid issues). This is far less than I used to break out!

Beach waves


This is my favorite look. The best part?

It’s almost effortless. I naturally have wavy hair, so that helps!

Beachy waves are so carefree and natural looking.
1) I start out with my hair damp. I put some Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Spray on my hair
2) When my hair is almost dry, I tousle it with my fingertips, especially at the roots, to create a more volumized, messy look
3) I then use my 1″ Remington Pearl Wand to curl a couple of pieces. I don’t curl all of my hair because that creates a less natural look (in my opinion)

Drugstore Dupes

The Make Up Forever HD Powder and e. l. f. High Definition Powder are meant to blur imperfections and create a soft look on the face. While Make Up Forever HD Powder certainly does the job – e. I. f. is a close second! And for only $6, it’s a must.

I actually like the e. l. f. Baked Highlighter better than The Buxom Divine Goddess Luminizer! And for $25 less, it’s easier on the bank account as well 🙂
