Do you love Korean Beauty but think vegan-friendly products are hard to find? Want to make your morning routine cruelty free but don’t know where to start? This post is for you! After all the love we received on our first blog about vegan Kbeauty we decided to make this into a series and show you a variety of different routines, tips, and tricks on how to pick the best vegan friendly products for your skin! It is a beautiful morning today, so shall we start with our morning routine?
Q&A: For which skin type is this morning routine suitable?
This is a super simple vegan friendly morning routine that focuses on moisturizing and a little bit on brightening. It has great anti-oxidant ingredients such as vitamin C but also the essential basics such as a great moisturizer and a sunscreen. Sounds good to you? Let’s start with cleansing!
Step 1: Cleansing Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel
The Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel is a gentle first cleanser that effortlessly removes makeup and other accumulated dirt without drying the skin. Unlike most first cleansers which have an oily consistency this is more milky and feels soft and comfortable on the skin. It is perfect to use in the morning as it leaves no residue, and has a slight fruity scent which wakes you up and makes you feel energized and refreshed. The only downside to this cleanser is that we have a feeling it will be discontinued as it is no longer available on the official Cosrx website. Therefore we have listed three other vegan friendly Korean cleanser which you can use in case that happens.
Step 2: Toner Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner
When talking about famous Korean toners the Klairs Supple Preparation Toners are always included in every talk. Both versions (regular and unscented) are vegan friendly and loved by many for their simple formulas with star ingredients such as Centella Asiatica, Aloe, Licorice root extract and more.

Step 3: Serum Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum
The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Serum is a beginner friendly vitamin C serum that absorbs easily into the skin making it perfect for your morning routine. Vitamin C contains anti-oxidants which are well-known to boost the efficiency of sunscreen! Want to learn more about how to get the most of your vitamin C serum?

Step 5: Sunscreen Yadah Oh My Sun Protection Milk
The final but most important step is sunscreen! Protect your skin with the vegan friendly Yadah Oh My Sun Protection Milk, or if you want a little color correction try the Yadah Oh My Sun Protection Tone Up Base instead. Both versions protect your skin with SPF50 and contain loads of soothing ingredients such as prickly pear cactus extract and Centella Asiatica. More vegan sunscreen options are below.
