Cop that blinding glow.

Way before "glass skin" was a thing, there was "honey skin." While glass skin focuses on texture and a transparent and reflective finish, honey skin is about the plumpness and hydration of one's complexion. And like all Korean beauty ideals, we can't help wanting it for ourselves.

To achieve the look, Sarah Lee of Glow Recipe said that you need a good combo of a face oil and an emollient cream. Both offer lasting hydration and grant your skin a "glow-y sheen," similar to gooey honey.

Sounds easy, right? Jump on the K-beauty skincare trend with our recommended oil and cream pairings, depending on your skin type:

Normal Skin

If you're blessed with good skin, this duo is for you: A 24k gold-infused face oil that won't leave your skin feeling sticky in our humid weather + a lightweight, plumping moisturizer.
