We sell directly to you instead of going through retailers so you can get quality skincare at half the price.
"Brand new to the men’s skin game straight from the R&D centers of some of Korean skin care’s biggest players, this cruelty-free moisturizing reef-safe sunscreen provides SPF 30 oil-free protection while amping up it’s healing and cooling benefits by adding cactus extract. It feels cool, smells great and works hard. It’s a major winner if you ask us."
"Cofounded by Korean skin care experts Narae Chung and Jacqueline Oak, Cardon targets male-specific skin care needs (such as skin irritation and redness from shaving), providing a simple daily routine to follow."
"Cardon was one our favorite new brands of 2019, and this is the product that started it all. It's a lightweight SPF 30 cream in a compact bottle—and yet a little goes such a long way. It's terrific for people of all skin types, and its not-so-secret ingredient is cactus extract, which soothes and nourishes skin on contact."
Growing up in Korea, our co-founder Narae saw first-hand the pride that Korean men took in their self-care. It was more than a routine—it was a way of life, an expression of self-care and enjoyment. After years working in the men's grooming and skincare industries in Asia, Narae decided to come to the US to attend Wharton Business School. There, she met her roommate Jacqueline (the second half of the Cardon puzzle), an expert in the retail startup space.
The dynamic duo saw an opportunity to change the outdated social norms around masculinity and self-care. Cardon's mission is to provide a safe place to explore and easy way to get premium, affordable skincare, and a safe place to explore and discovery.
"I have tried multiple different skin care brands trying to help my acne prone and semi-sensitive combination skin type. I tried Tiege Hanley, Lumin, Clinique, and others and they've all been harsh on my face. I've been using Cardon for about a month now and my skin loves it! I feel a deep clean but very soft on the skin, and it smells AMAZING! The sunscreen morning moisturizer and the nightly 3-in-1 moisturizer have also helped to dry up and clear up my stubborn acne.

"First I usually don't write reviews, but this one is a very special case. I have been looking for a skincare set for about 2 years now and I am certain that I have found the one. After about 4 weeks, my skin now looks very healthy and hydrated.

"Literally 1000s of sunscreens call themselves "non-greasy" and they totally are greasy. I'm 24 and have naturally oily, and acne prone skin so this is an important feature for me. Cardon feels so lightweight. It soaks is beautifully, and doesn't feel greasy at all. Highly recommend."

"The product really does work overtime. Our skin wasn’t only bouncy and plump but after a few weeks, we noticed acne scars fade, skin become more dewy. Maskne be damed, this made our complexion even-toned and less angry."
CLEAN LOOKING AND FEELING SKIN
I love using Cardon Skincare! Every time I wash my face I feel like it visibly looks clean and feels fresh! It also doesn't leave my skin looking shiny, which has been a big problem that I've had with other products.

PERFECT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
I have really sensitive skin. These products don't cause any irritation and leave my skin feeling great. Please make shaving cream next! These are the only skin care products I'll ever use. Thank you.
ACNE IS PRETTY MUCH GONE!
This has been a great way to detox and calm my skin down. Before my skin was inflammed, hot, oily, dark complexion, acne prone and more. I use this with a facial cleansing machine and it's cleared up and brightened my skin so much. The clay cleanser was a great decongestant my skin because the texture, thickness and density of the clay sinks into your pores. The moisturizers is what I was most afraid of because of my skin, however the moisturizers do not feel clogging or oily at all.
WORTH THE PRICE
I've had troubles with acne since grade school. This helps control it and my skin has never been so soft.
AMAZING PRODUCTS AND SERVICE
I love these products. 2 steps in the AM and 2 steps in the PM. My skin is clean, refreshed and hydrated. One major plus is the products absorb so quickly that I never appear oily. The bottles at first seem small but the products apply so easily and the product lasts an unbelievable amount of time. Also the quick delivery is highly appreciated. I believe I waited only 3 days for my refills. I will continue using these products as they are the best that I have ever tried.
I love this SPF + Moisturizer. Sunscreen is the #1 most important step in skincare, as it prevents skin cancer and premature aging. This is my favorite product. I never leave the house without this and with its convenient size and packaging, it's easy to bring with you anywhere you go. It applies well and doesn't leave any white streaks or sticky residue. Definitely would recommend this to everyone, it's a must-have in your skincare routine. Even if you don't have a routine, this one product is a must!
LOVE THESE PRODUCTS
The clay face wash feels great, smells great, and leaves my face feeling clean. I have oily skin and the clay really does seem to strike a great balance between absorbing excess oil but not too much. The SPF moisturizer is really great too. I have been looking for an SPF moisturizer that absorbs fast like this and I've finally found it. I love the smell and how good it makes my face feel.
