We’re all used to Korean beauty routines costing a pretty penny. With all the steps required to get that glowing complexion, it just seems par for the course. But if you’re strapped for cash and desperate to level up your skincare, don’t lose hope yet! We promise Face Republic will give you more than your money’s worth.
Simply put, the brand is K-beauty for the Filipina. By offering premium quality finds at budget-friendly prices, Face Republic makes idol-perfect skin much more attainable. We picked four of their products to help us achieve the buzzy “glass skin” look—which, as you may know, would usually take a lot of work to get. Here’s how we did it for less!

HOW TO GET “GLASS SKIN” WITH FACE REPUBLIC


STEP 1. CLEANSER
Start off your routine with a deep-cleansing and brightening face wash. We went for one that not only infuses your skin with a touch of gold, it also doubles as a gentle exfoliant to chase away dullness.

WE USED: Face Republic Gold Mineral Cleanser (100ml), P399

STEP 2. MOISTURIZER
Plump up your pelt with a glow-giving moisturizer. Plus points if it also helps even out your skin tone and banish blemishes, like the one we used. Remember: glass skin is all about that flawless base!

WE USED: Face Republic Crystal Glow Whitening Cream (30ml), P499

STEP 3. SUN PROTECTION
Layer on the SPF! If you’re on the combo to oily side, opt for a sun gel like we did. Unlike most lotion-type sunscreens, our pick is lightweight, non-greasy, and absorbs easily into the skin to leave you with an ultra smooth finish.

WE USED: Face Republic Super Screen Sun Gel SPF 50+ (50ml), P499

STEP 4. BB CREAM (OPTIONAL)
Apply a thin layer of BB cream all over and spot correct only where necessary, so your base still appears sheer. We reached for a balm that delivers natural-looking coverage for that no-makeup makeup look that’s a glass skin essential. Plus, while this one swatches light beige, it can totally suit morena complexions when blended well!

WE USED: Face Republic Perfect Cover BB Cream (40ml), P599
