Embrace a K-Beauty Routine…The Kiehl’s Way!
Are you loving the Korean beauty trend? Us, too. Read on to discover a handful of our favorite Kiehl’s products to pair together in your multi-step skin care routine, ahead.
K-Beauty has made serious waves in the beauty sphere over the last few years, and it’s fair to say we’ve hopped on that bandwagon. Sure, the often 10-step routine can be time-consuming, but the effort is worth it (in our opinion, at least). If you’re looking to craft your own Korean beauty regimen, look no further than Kiehl’s. From skin brighteners to cleansers, the brand offers a wide range of products that can fit into any K-Beauty-inspired routine. We share a few of them, below.
Who doesn’t want visibly brighter-looking skin? Incorporate products from the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective range to help correct the appearance of skin discoloration and improve skin’s clarity over time.
Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Brightening & Smoothing Moisture Treatment
Moisturizers are a critical part of every skin care routine. They not only hydrate the skin, but some can even target certain concerns, be it dullness or noticeable discoloration. This one in particular—formulated with activated C, white birch, and glycolic acid—infuses intense hydration and can help correct the appearance of skin discoloration and rough texture for improved skin clarity over time.
Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
When it comes to serums, there is a plethora of options available which can make finding the perfect one for your skin a bit overwhelming. But don’t fret—we’re here to help! If you’re dealing with unwanted dark spots and discoloration, Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution may be a great option for you. With a potent complex of activated C, white birch, and peony, this formula is clinically-demonstrated to help correct the appearance of dark spots and discoloration for visible correction and clarity.

No K-Beauty routine is complete without double cleansing. The method typically consists of cleansing with an oil-based cleanser first, followed by a water-based cleanser. With Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil and Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Conditioning Cleanser, you can easily create your own double-cleansing routine at home.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil
Looking for a lightweight cleansing oil that can effectively dissolve hard-to-remove makeup and impurities without over-drying the skin? Try Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil. Formulated with squalane, evening primrose oil, and lavender essential oil, this all-in-one cleansing formula leaves the skin feeling comfortable, soothed, and prepared for nighttime replenishment. Feel free to use this cleanser on its own, or pair it with your favorite water-based cleanser for a full K-Beauty experience.

Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Conditioning Cleanser
This mild, daily cleansing oil effectively removes dirt and makeup without disrupting the skin’s natural balance. The unique texture transforms from a gel to a light, thin oil that helps gently melt away facial impurities. What’s more, it’s gentle enough for use on the eye area and leaves skin smoother, more radiant, and comfortably soothed. What’s not to love?

Essences and facial mists are two must-have K-beauty products. To give the Kiehl’s rendition of liquid care a try, incorporate these two products into your routine:
Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence
We like to describe essences as a crossover between a toner and facial serum. Typically, they are lightweight in consistency, and can offer benefits similar to that of a serum. Take Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence for example. The unique liquid concentrate absorbs rapidly to deliver anti-aging and hydrating ingredients to the skin’s surface, and can help visibly improve the appearance of fine lines, dullness, and rough texture over time.

Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist
For an instant skin refresh, add a facial mist—like Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist—to your routine. The cooling mist purifies and hydrates the skin to improve overall texture for a revived, healthy-looking appearance. Infused with lavender, geranium, and rosemary essential oils, this hydrating mist leaves skin feeling soft, smooth, and refreshed.
Wish your skin could look naturally airbrushed? To help beautify the look of your skin, try this standout product duo from Kiehl’s:
Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream Sunscreen
This dual-action tinted formula—available in five natural-looking shades—not only helps instantly perfect the appearance of skin’s tone, but also helps protect the skin against the sun’s harmful UV rays with Broad Spectrum SPF 50. For the best line of protection for your skin, pair your Broad Spectrum SPF use with additional sun protection measures such as wearing protective clothing, seeking shade, and avoiding peak sun hours.
Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector
Formulated with lipo hydroxy acid, bark, and lentil extracts, this lightweight skin smoother helps instantly refine skin’s texture and minimize the appearance of pores all while improving the skin’s quality over time.
