New to K-Beauty!! Need recommendations

I’ve been wanting to invest in some Korean skincare products but not sure where to start. Was looking for a cleanser to start with for oily skin without making my face look completely dry after using it. Also looking for recommendations on follow up products as well 🙂

Re: New to K-Beauty!! Need recommendations

Tatcha The Matcha Cleanse Daily Clarifying Gel Cleanser 5 oz / 150 ml is japanese but has been a live saver for my oily skin and acne. went from 5-10 pimples at all times to 1-2 and it makes my pores almost invisible.

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum for Anti-Aging 2.2 oz / 60 ml works great for me after and then 

innisfree Pore Clearing Matte Moisturizer with Volcanic Clusters 1.7 oz/ 50 mL for really oily days and Tatcha The Water Cream Oil-Free Pore Minimizing Moisturizer for days i can afford something a little shinier because it minimizes the oil your skin produces over time instead of removing oil already there

I think a good starting point for you would be Laniege products.  They have their LANEIGE Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Hydration Set  that's really good for oily skin.  I also swear by their LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Peppermint (or any scent/flavor you like).

Re: New to K-Beauty!! Need recommendations

I have oily skin as well and I like innisfree Volcanic Pore Clearing Facial Cleanser with AHA + BHA 5 oz / 150 mL . I use it with an origins exfoliator and moisturizer daily and then every couple weeks I’ll use innisfree Super Volcanic AHA Pore Clearing Clay Mask 3.38 oz / 100 ml as well.
