I Woke Up Like This is a rising skincare brand in Korea with their mild botanical formula and great product quality. Their sunblock, BB, and brightening mask pack have become the key star products this year with amazing IG rave reviews. I also really liked that Han Yona (the founder of IWLT) developed this brand with Cosmax (who is the manufacturer of Lancome, Loreal, and Shu Uemura products), when she was pregnant. She was looking for some safe skin care for both her sensitive skin and baby inside, but couldn't find one in the market. That is why she launched this brand which has very mild formula! So, IWLT is known as a brand for pregnant ladies!

  • IWLT Rice Cleansing Water is suitable for all skin types.
  • Suitable for day/night use.

  • Cleansing Water: Pump as much needed to the cotton pad (Jungmin usually pumps 4 times) and remove the makeup on your face and neck.
  • Oil Foam Cleanser
    • Shake well before usage, so that 2 layers can be mixed well.

Jungmin’s TIPS

  1. Wash your hands clearly first! If you don’t wash your hands first, impurities on your hand will transfer to your face and the cleansing power will be weakened too.
  2. Make sure use enough amount! If you don’t use enough cleansing water, rubbing with cotton pad can be another stress on your skin. It is up to each person, but I pump 4 times of cleansing water and 2 times of oil foam cleanser usually.
  3. Finish with cold water! When you wash, of course you can use warm water (not hot water!). But when you finish, just use cold water to tighten your pores.
  4. 3 sec moisturizing after wash! Right after washing your face, don’t wait too long to apply your toner! Right after washing, remove the remaining water on your face with tower (just tok tok again, not rubbing!) and then apply toner right after! It is so much better for moisturizing.

    3. IWLT Hydra Balancing Rose Mist (20ml) 

    • IWLT Hydra Balancing Rose Mist is suitable for dry skin types.
    • Suitable for day/night use.

    *Bottle is changed to transparent due to KR customers' requests. There are many regular users of this rose mist. They wanted to check how much is left so that they can plan ahead their next purchase. For me, I use 1 bottle (60ml) in 1 month, because I literally spray everywhere.

    My must have item in my handbag. I like to spray after using cushion to create a glowy & dewy look. Some mists have big molecules and oily finish, so when you just sprayed, it looks nice. But later, it only becomes more dry and your skin will become more troubled, because residues and fine dust will stick to those heavy molecules. IWLT Hydra Balancing Rose Mist is very lightweight and moisturising, so you will want to spray a lot throughout the day. I am pretty sure it will become your daily “on the go” item.

    Ceramide 3 (protects skin from external stress and keeps the skin moisturised) + Hyaluronic Acid is perfect for your dry skin! Moisturising is the no.1 priority for good skin!

    • The luxurious scent is from May Rose, which you can only get during May in Grasse, France.
    • Enhance your skin’s health with Biomimetic water 
    • Moisturise your dry skin with a light finish
    • It is not aerosol type (yay! you can bring to your flight), but still a very fine mist!


    • needs immediate moisturising
    • works or sleeps in dry environment (whole day in AC room)
    • has extra oil and sebum release on the skin
    • needs speedy recovery from sensitive skin


    Ceramide is one of the key ingredients of Corneum. It protects the skin from external stress and prevents moisture evaporation, so it keeps skin moisturised throughout the day.

    Hyaluronic Acid
    It is a type of polysaccharide which exists between skin collagen and elastin. It is there to compose natural skin moisturising factors. It maintains moisturised skin and makes dermis elastic and healthy.


    Wherever and whenever you want, spray onto your face, neck, and back (not too close, at least 20cm away). After spraying, pat well to absorb into your skin. I personally use it

    1. After washing face and before toning, I spray rose mist in case I feel my skin is dry. 
    2. After make-up, I use it as as finish spray for dewy & glowy look
    3. During day times, I spray multiples times whenever I feel dry to keep it moisturised. So I finish 1 bottle (60ml) in 1 month.

    Ingredients List: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Saccharum Officinarum Extract, Carrageenan Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (1,000ppm), Pinus Pumilio Bark Extract, Lactis Lipida, Betaine, Dipropylene Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dimethicone, Octyldodeceth-16, Ethylhexylglycerin, Lecithin, Tromethamine, Diphenyl Dimethicone, Triethylhexanoin, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Propylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Phosphatidylcholine, Ceramide NP, Cholesterol, Theanine, Glutathione, Carbomer, Alcohol Denat., Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance.

    4. IWLT Hydra Treatment Toner (70ml) 

    • IWLT Hydra Treatment Toner is suitable for all skin types.
    • Suitable for day/night use.

    Toner is the last step of cleansing and first step of skin care. A really important step!

    2 Points

    • Perfect Booster Toner before next skin care step
    • Highly Moisturising: Perfect for 7 Skin and Skinpack

    Point 1: Hydrating Treatment Toner before next skin care step

    “Toner is the last step of cleansing and first step of skin care!”

    For skin care, Toner enables our skin to clean up thoroughly and prepare for the next skin care step. How? Cleansing itself (cleanser, the entire rubbing friction on the skinactually adds stress to our skin, so the skin becomes sensitive and tense after washing.

    While toner helps to calm sensitive skin, it also acts as a BOOSTER. Imagine our skin is like a dried-up sponge. After washing, you skin surface is damp so you don’t think it is dried-up? But you literally washed off the surface of skin only! Inner layers are still very dry like dried-up sponge. If you put a thick cream on a brittle dry sponge, it won't accept it as it isn't 'prepped' for moisture. But if you wet the sponge, the cream will sink in more easily.

    Not only that, Toner helps the skin to absorb more moisturisers. Your skin will stay moisturised longer. Why is that so? Like we said, skin is like a sponge. Do you remember how a wet sponge picks up water so much better than a dry sponge? That is because water molecules are highly attracted to one another than anything else. It’s the same thing with skin. “Wet” your skin first with toner, and it will draw in more of whatever you put on next. This is also why you should apply skin care products right after cleansing, while your skin is still moist.

    Point 2: Highly Moisturising! Perfect for 7 Skin and Skin pack

    IWLT Toner can do HIGH moisturising with Sodium Hyaluronate! Highly moisturising Toner is perfect for #7SkinMethod and #skinpack, which has been a big trend in Korea.

    7 Skin Method? 
    7 layers of your Toner are patted on and layered in succession (skin and Toner are the same word in Korean). The background story is that the moisture level of your skin can be increased effectively without the heaviness or greasiness that may come from traditional creams and oils. It is also a great way to hydrate all skin types, providing the optimal balance of hydration and skin’s natural oils with a subtle dewy glow and firmer skin. This 7 skin method first took Korea by storm when actresses and models revealed their secret to luminous skin is “7 skin method” in Get It Beauty - most famous K-beauty TV show (yes, the one our Serendi Sparkling Pack was introduced!).


    • Elegant and luxurious Rose scent from Rose Flower Oil will make you and your skin feel relaxed.
    • Not sticky only moisturising Glyceryl Glucoside, 30,000 times smaller that Hyaluronic Acid, helps to absorb into your skin very quickly without stickiness and prevent any loss of moisture after washing your face.
    • Sodium Hyaluronate (complex) is made of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C. Vitamin C is stable so it can also work during day time. It enhances skin tone, texture and complexion. It will deeply moisturise and help you to get balanced skin back! Bye bye damaged skin!


    • Who wants all day moisturising
    • Whose skin is so dry that it needs maintenance
    • Who wants brighter skin after washing their face
    • Who needs skin boosting products for better skin care

    5. IWLT Hydra Moisture Day and Night Cream (15ml)

    • IWLT Hydra Moisture Day and Night Cream is suitable for dry types.
    • Suitable for day/night use.

    Moisturiser is an important skin care step right before suncare! Its biggest function is to seal up the moisture and nourishment that your skin absorbed during Toner & Ampoule usage, so that it doesn’t evaporate. If it locks up well, you will feel moisturised all day, but if it doesn’t lock in moisture, you will feel a strong pulling sensation during day time (especially cold AC place!) But if moisturiser is too oily and is not absorbed well to your skin, it makes your makeup look cakey and will clog your pores. Your skin cannot breathe well!

    I Woke Up Like This solved this problem by using Biomimetic Water for both Pink (Oily/Combi Skin) and Purple (Dry skin). Biomimetic Water is directed to compositions of health and beauty care products which are produced by mimicking the human body's own defence mechanisms and the methods to produce and use such compositions. The products are water based, oil and surfactant free and can be antimicrobicidal, without causing drying or itching of the skin. Moreover, it enhances hydration and moisturising of the skin and prevents itching. The products are based on water solutions of mixed oxidants, mimicking those produced by the human immune system cells – resulting in highly effective formulations that are able to replicate the regenerative efficiencies that are natural to more youthful skin.

    Thanks to Biomimetic Water, good ingredients of cream will absorb well and seal up the moisture and nutrition! Therefore, your post makeup finish is very flawless and the moisture level throughout the day will be very high!

    IWLT purple cream is the ultimate rich cream for dry skin. Its texture is heavy, between balm and cream type. It also has brightening properties and wrinkle care.

    1. Formulated for dry skin. Crithmum Maritimum brightens and smoothens skin texture.

    2. Highly moisturising ingredients will hydrate into deep tissues.

    3. It has great absorption and it is not sticky.

    4. Tired skin from external stress will be refreshed and water balance will be optimised.

    6. IWLT Purifying Skin Balance Cream (15ml)

    • IWLT Purifying Skin Balance Cream is suitable for oily or combination skin types.
    • Suitable for day/night use.

    If you are looking for a moisturiser for your oily/combi skin, pink cream is the perfect solution. Many oily skin ladies don't use moisturisers because they are worried it will cause more problems. Truth is, if your skin doesn't have enough moisture, it will release more sebum and oil to protect your skin. Make sure you use a water base moisturiser to give the right balance! Its oil control function is really good so if you are concerned about your oily and combi skin, I strongly recommend this product!

Many ladies in Korea use this pink cream as daily summer cream before makeup!

    1. Formulated for oily and combination skin! Light and fresh finish with right level of moisture.

    7. IWLT Protecting Base Sun Cream (15ml) (SPF50+/ PA+++)

    • IWLT Sun Cream is suitable for all skin types but recommended for dry/normal/combination skin.
    • Suitable for day use.

    Old Version -  IWLT Protective Base Sun Cream
    New Version - IWLT Protecting Base Sun Cream

      4 Reasons that Ksisters Recommend IWLT Sunblock

      1. Refreshing (Moisturising Effect): My favourite part is its high technology which includes Hydro gel elastomer inside the formula. So unlike other sunblock, which makes you feel dry, IWLT sunblock will have all day moisturising effect (only moisturising not sticky)! 
      2. Only Natural & Healthy Glow (Brightening): It is not white, but natural skin tone colour. If you don't like white cast, this is the perfect product. It only gives a nice glow, which will last throughout the day. Right after you apply IWLT sunblock, you can see natural tone-up booster effect (yay for brightened face!). Perfect base before your make up. After sunblock, apply BB (or your preferred Foundation or Cushion.)
      3. Fast absorption & Soft Texture : It is not thick textured cream, it is very light weight lotion type, so you feel like you are applying soft lotion. Thanks to its light texture, you can apply it as a very thin layer, which helps fast absorption and good adherence. 
      4. Double UV Protection : Have you wondered what is UVA and UVB? In UV rays there are two different rays and it will cause different kinds of damage on your skin. (Kindly refer the image below.) So when you choose sunblock you have to carefully check both PA (level of protection against UVA) and SPF (level of protection against UVB). As you can see IWLT has highest level in both measurement!


      • Biomimetic Water: Helps to improve skin texture, brighten skin tone and absorbs into skin effectively.
      • Pinus Pumilio Bark Extract: Ingredients extracted from Coastal Fine Trees protect skin and help to strengthen skin wall.

      HOW TO USE
