K-Beauty For The Clean Girl Aesthetic

K-Beauty For The Clean Girl Aesthetic


It’s officially 2023 and while we're excited to leave a lot behind from 2022 one trend we won't be abandoning is the Clean Girl Aesthetic. 

This was one of the biggest beauty trends in 2022 and we know it’s going dominate this year too. 


Confused about the Clean Girl Aesthetic?

To break it down for you, the Clean Girl Aesthetic focusses on glowing, dewy skin, with minimal makeup. Think Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber (who, coincidentally is also a fan of donut skin). 

So how do you get the clean girl aesthetic?

Well, it’s ALL about a killer skincare routine. Luckily, we got you covered.


How to Achieve Clean Girl Skin 

Here are some of our favorite K-Beauty For The Clean Girl Aesthetic.



Cleansing Step 1: Subi Bare Skin Balm

It's 2023 and if you aren’t removing your makeup with a cleansing balm or oil then you need to start now.

Harsh makeup removes, devices and stripping wipes are out.

Gently removing SPF, makeup, and sebum with hydrating ingredients are in.

Luckily this cleansing balm by Subi has everything you need. Not only is it packed with incredible ingredients like Vitamin E and Lemon Myrtle leaf extract, it's also perfect to keep your skin hydrated and clean.


Cleansing Step 2: Subi Brightening Powder Cleanser

Powder to foam cleansers are a great option for those who are always on the go.

The waterless formulation means powder washes have an extended shelf life and can be taken on planes without worry about TSA restrictions (Win!)

Subi's powder cleanser is packed with Centella Asiatica, Ceramides, and Licorice which work together to clean and brighten the skin without leaving it feeling dry.



Want to grab both together for less? Try the Double Cleansing Duo.



Exfoliation is a key step to clear skin and improves the absorption of serums, ampoules and creams. The key is to find the right exfoliator for your skin type. 


For Sensitive / Dry / Dehydrated / Mature Skin - Subi Holo Dream Mask Brush & Set 

This 100% fragrance and essential oil free clay mask is the perfect exfoliator for sensitive, dry, dehydrated and mature skin. We'll let real reviewer Karri B share her thoughts on why she loves Subi's Holo Dream:


"Even though I am a mature person I found it made a huge difference to my skin..After rinsing off, my skin felt so good, my pores on my nose were definitely reduced and after using this every 3rd day I could genuinely see the difference. Meeting up with my friend who I visit every 6 weeks, she asked me what did I have done to my face, because it looks really great ? Well that was all the confirmation I needed ladies. Thoroughly recommend Subi Holo for any age group."


Clean Girl Aesthetic

For Oily / Acne Prone and Combination SkinJelly Ko Cinnamon Toast Sugar Scrub Foam

This versatile sugar scrub by Korean beauty brand Jelly Ko allows you to tailor your cleanse as you need. If you are looking for more exfoliation then leave the sugar crystals in the foam.

For a regular cleanse, lather your hands together first to dissolve the sugar crystals. Once the foam is smooth use it like a regular cleanser for a gentler, hydrating cleanse.



Unlike typical western toners, which tend to be more astringent or exfoliating, K-Beauty toners often focus on hydration

Jelly Ko Dewy Glaze Toner

This Top 5 Best of Kbeauty is a must have for those looking to achieve the clean girl aesthetic.

It was formulated specifically to achieve ‘glazed donut skin', a trend that strives for ‘shiny, dewy, hydrated skin’.

Formulated on three different types of Hyaluronic Acid plus Birch Sap instead of regular water, this toner is ultra-hydrating.

In addition, it has a consistency that is closer to an essence than a traditional toner. It’s also the perfect toner to use for the Korean 7 Skin’s Method.


Jelly Ko Dewy Glaze Toner




APLB Bee Pollen Propolis Ampoule Serum 

This ultra hydrating ampoule serum is packed with 43% Bee Pollen Extract, an ingredient known to soothe the skin barrier.

Not only is it perfectly balanced with a pH of 5.5, it is ideal for all skin types. It also contains Vitamin C which boosts collagen and helps fight the signs of ageing. 



Jelly Ko Bubble Tea Steam Cream 

When it comes to hydrating creams we can’t go past the Jelly Ko Bubble Tea Steam Cream.

This was the top selling product on STYLE STORY in 2022 and once you try it you will immediately know why.

This 100% cruelty-free steam cream is a deliciously hydrating drink for your skin. It is formulated with incredibly effective ingredients including Niacinamide, Vitamin E, Beta Glucan and Squalane.

You will feel the hydration hit immediately!




APLB Propolis Collagen Eye Cream

 The area under our eyes is one of the most prone to dehydration and often needs that extra bit of TLC because of how delicate it is.

Luckily, this incredible Propolis Collagen Eye Cream delivers the goods. With over 4 types of Complex Peptides this cream revitalises and strengthens the area under the eyes so that your skin can look brighter, firmer and more hydrated.


Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

It's not likely you need the introduction to this global hit favourite, but in case you do Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask is a winner for a reason.

Not only is it perfect for when your lips are feeling dehydrated or cracked, it's also packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

But get in quick! These little babies sell out at STYLE STORY constantly. 




Jelly Ko Cherry Blossom Sleeping Mask 

For a hard-hitting moisture you need 2022's top sleeping mask, Cherry Blossom by Jelly Ko.

Loved by the ladies at Mamamia and on the You Beauty Podcast, this sleeping mask is formulated with Niacinamide, Panthenol, Allantoin and Cherry Blossom.

Simply apply a small amount 30 minutes before bed, tap lightly to aid absorption and let it works it magic while you sleep.

This is a great mask to do two or three times a week. It's also a must the night before a big event.




The clean girl look cannot be achieved with dehydrated skin, so the main requirement is hydration, stat!

Beautiful bouncy, dewy skin takes time to achieve but the key really is hydation, hydration, hydration!

Keep up the water this year and your skin will thank you for it.
