Curation Standard-Old


"Honest and Non-Harsh" is our motto. This philosophy is honoured throughout our curation process.

So how does a Korean beauty product make to the Glow Picks cut? It's a time-consuming process and a vital one at that. I don't champion certain brands because their claims of being "natural" or "free from harsh chemicals" is often untrue. Over the years, I have learned that the same product goes through multiple transformations with changing ingredients, so even the brands that are seen as natural are sometimes not.

It's my mission to thoroughly check each product I curate, ensuring the Glow Picks stock is super gentle and free from harsh and abrasive ingredients, so you can achieve your skincare goals simply and safely.
