A closer look at Yadah: gentle products for troubled skin


If you have troubled or acne-prone skin, you’ve probably used products with ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. While they’re super effective at treating acne, they can also irritate your skin. The Korean brand Yadah offers a different solution.

  2. I love Korean skincare and these sound awesome! While I do like gentle products, I find that they also take time which isn’t a bad time. People with sensitive skin will definitely benefit from this. xx

      Yep, I’m starting to appreciate gentle products more now – better to wait for the results than to rush things and irritate the skin in the process!

    I enjoyed these products as well! I ended up giving the cleanser to my sister who needed a gentle anti-acne cleanser and she loves it. The red spot cream doesn’t seem to shrink my pimples but it’s got some great anti-inflammatory extracts in it and I’ve been using it to speed healing of pink spots after a blemish flattens out. It’s surprisingly moisturizing for a spot cream.

    • Jenny says:

      I agree! I’ve also used it on dry peeling skin (accidentally went overboard with benzoyl peroxide and a huge patch of my neck started flaking…) and it works wonderfully. They really should make the directions on the red spot cream more clear!

      Thanks for reading Liz! Korean brands are really innovative when it comes to skincare, so you can always count on them to come out with really interesting products! :)

    Luckily my skin isn’t too sensitive, but it definitely is acne prone. That sucks the first one gave you some pimples. I am always weary of foaming products because they usually contain SLS. But I’d be interested to see what other good ingredients are in there. I need to up my Korean skin care game! There’s always so much to choose from that I never know where to start! Haha.

      Hopefully it didn’t give me pimples, but it definitely didn’t prevent them completely, which is a bummer :/ It doesn’t have SLS though, which is a plus. Korean brands are so definitely ahead of the curve when it comes to using new ingredients and experimenting with different formats of skincare products, plus they’re constantly releasing new products, it’s hard to keep up!

    I find it awesome that your review was completely honest. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more reviews from you in the future. xo

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you for the kind comment Ela! It’s a personal pet-peeve of mine when sponsored posts are always 100% positive (because let’s be real, nothing is perfect), so I try to avoid doing that myself :)

  7. These sound awesome! I try to stick to skincare products that have a good amount of plant extracts in them, and it’s not all chemicals because they can irritate my skin. Love the sound of this line!

      Thanks for stopping by Nida! It’s always exciting to see more brands, like Yadah, incorporating plant extracts in their products – some of them have great skin benefits :)

  8. Hmm…I think the only product that I will enjoy is the sunscreen. I am lucky to have pretty good skin but I like my skincare products to give me the ‘wow!’ factor. I don’t think I have the patience with gentle products.

    • Jenny says:

      Yep, these definitely don’t offer immediate results, except the spot cream which is great for healing acne scars, but that’s moot for people who don’t break out (˶‾᷄ ⁻̫ ‾᷅˵) Skincare with wow factors are rare for me, I’m still on the search for them! (^∇^)

  9. Yadah was a brand that I’ve been hearing about over and over again recently! This will be so helpful for my sister who struggles with very acne-prone skin and will definitely find any acne/oily skincare products to be highly beneficial!

    • Jenny says:

      They’re definitely more gentle than your typical acne products, so I think it helps balance out the harshness of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide :)
