My Beauty Obsessions: Kimiko Glenn of Orange Is The New Black

Natural and Organic Skincare

One of Kimiko Glenn's favorites is our Board and Batten Cleansing and Conditioning Balm 

"I started using this because it was given to me. You massage it into your face and it removes the makeup that you wipe off with a little towel. A lot of times cleansers strip your face and I love that this doesn’t do that. Afterwards I feel like I don’t need moisturizer. Athough, if it’s winter I’ll still put a little on. After I started using this, makeup artists started to tell me I had beautiful skin, which is a good sign."

As inmate Brook Soso on Orange Is The New Black, actor Kimiko Glenn is in an unusual situation for her line of work: she wears little to no makeup on screen.

In fact, the most makeup she’s worn on the show was when her character was on hunger strike and the makeup artists had to pale her lips and put bags under her eyes. Being this kind of camera-ready means Glenn has to take extra good care of her skin.

“I have genetically okay skin, which is nice,” the Phoenix native says. “But I’ll break out if I’m stressed or not eating well, or if I sleep with my makeup on,” which she does wear in her life off-camera.

Glenn, who’s a vegetarian, also does yoga at  to deal with stress, and uses hydrating natural beauty products to keep her skin glowing.

“I’ve started oil cleansing, and that’s really helped keep my skin calm,” she says. “I also use rosewater and glycerin spray before I moisturize, and that locks the moisture in.” Here’s what else the Netflix star loves to use on her skin before stepping into the spotlight.
