Kary Cheng

The Face Behind the Brand

Growing up in Hong Kong, where skincare is heavily influenced by East Asian beauty leaders such as Japan and Korea, and within a culture where sheet masks play a critical role in skincare routines, Kary Cheng is a naturally passionate advocate of sheet masks.

For as long as she can remember, sheet masks have been a fundamental part of Kary’s skincare routine. It’s a product she religiously uses every week, and which has helped her overcome skin concerns and feel confident.

After living in Dubai for a decade, Kary was still travelling back to Hong Kong for sheet masks. When they did appear on shelves, they couldn’t match the results and the quality of leading East Asian brands.

This frustration, coupled with a passionate belief in the benefits sheet masks could bring to the region, led to the creation of GLIST.

Kary strongly believes that skincare shouldn’t be complex or involve a million steps. Instead, it should fit easily into people’s schedules, and empower them to feel the best version of themselves.

“It seemed crazy to me that I still had to travel to a different country to buy the skincare essential I’ve relied on my whole life.”

“I’ve created GLIST to give those who lead a busy lifestyle, live in fast-paced cities, or who want to escape time-consuming skincare routines, a simple way to take care of their skin, so they can feel
their best.”
