Sokoglam Favorites

$10 Black Sugar Mask Wash Off

I’ve used this Black Sugar Mask since my undergraduate studies. Back then I purchased it because it’s inexpensive and it has enough product to last about 2.5 to 3 months of one semester (which typically lasts about 15-16 weeks). It’s a sugar face scrub that deeply cleanses the skin. I stopped using it for a while because I did not want to damage the skin on my face with abrasive scrubs that can cause tears or small cuts. However, after repurchasing, I can see the scrub is not too rough or damaging. I rinse it off slowly in circular motions with wet hands before thoroughly washing face with water. I recommend this product if you’re in the market for an inexpensive weekly exfoliant scrub.

This product isn’t a favorite, I just decided to test it out because it’s highly reviewed. I put the box of sheet masks in the fridge and use it chilled. I like using it, but I do not plan on repurchasing because I see no difference in my skin.
$11 Egg White Pore Foam Face Wash

I’ve also used this product for years. It’s the best, and the fact that it’s sold out at the moment speaks volumes. A little product goes a long way. It thoroughly cleans make-up and grime in a way that’s similar to the Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash, but for half the price.

$27 Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon

Another favorite that I’ve used for more than three years ~ these lemon pads are both physical and chemical exfoliants. I love using it weekly or as needed to clear up any problems on my skin. It always works like a charm (notably in unison with Neutrogena – On-the-Spot Acne Treatment)

$10 Rice Mask Wash Off

This mask leaves your face feeling clean but not stripped. It helps clear up and brighten the skin. This is a milder exfoliant alternative to the black sugar mask and equally effective.

Honorable mention – MISSHA sunscreen is the best (besides Supergoop), in my opinion. It’s hydrating and dries on clear rather than grey-ish like most sunscreens. ❤
