Best routine/brand/products for a teen?

I’ve been researching recently about Korean skincare & makeup, and I’m struggling a little to find a cleansing oil as well as a few basic skincare products. I have very sensitive skin, and I’d like to use products directed towards younger people without any intense ingredients. Any recommendations? ❤️

Re: Best routine/brand/products for a teen?

Hi @LilsFlower I have sensitive, dry skin. Softymo Speedy Cleansing oil is really great. It’s technically JBeauty, but I’ve seen it at many Asian beauty shops along side Kbeauty products. It does a good job of melting down makeup and sunscreen. If you also need a cleanser, COSRX Good Morning cleanser is what I’m currently using and it doesn’t irritate my skin. 

@itsfi Already mentioned Etude Soon Jung lineup. Everything in there is great and sensitive skin friendly. Their 2x intensive barrier cream is a great moisturizer for dry, sensitive skin. If you live in a dry climate or are just really dry in general, their Cica balm is good on top to seal everything in. If you want something underneath your moisturizer to help draw moisturize back into your skin, HadoLabo GokuJyun lotion is amazing. Also technically JBeauty, but it’s so refreshing after cleansing.

Overall Line: Etude House SoonJung line is excellent for sensitive skin. I don't believe they have a cleansing oil, but they do have whip cleanser that is nice, not stripping or drying. Other good Kbeauty brands for sensitive skin is make p:rem or Pyunkang Yul.
