Asian beauty is everywhere right now. The cutely packaged products are plastered across my Pinterest and Instagram feeds and littering store shelves — even my own friends have started devoting their evenings to lengthy, multi-step Korean skincare routines. And they're not alone, along with them are thousands of Reddit users who also swear by these unusual, but genius Asian beauty products.
If you find stepping into the Asian skin care world to be a bit daunting, Reddit is the place to get your feet wet. There are several sub-Reddit threads dedicated to helping newbies find the products that are right for them, as well as threads that walk you through an entire10-plus product skincare routine. But my personal favorites are the threads where people reach out asking common skincare questions because when you turn to Reddit for advice, you’re getting suggestions from people who have actually tried these products out.
Between the skin care products that Reddit users say you should ease into your existing routines to the beauty items that amp up your makeup, there are endless product suggestions out there. So, I dug deep into the sub-Reddits to find the the unusual, but genius Asian beauty products that Redditors swear by, so you don't have to.
