This spring, Beauty of Joseon collaborated with Stefanie Michailova to unveil the new Ground Rice and Honey Glow Mask. Dive into Stefanie's story behind this natural-derived yet powerful product and her experiences developing the mask.

Please introduce yourself to the BOJ community

Hello! My name is Stefanie Michova and I am originally from Munich, Germany. I’ve been living in Korea for the past five years with my husband and two doggies.

My professional background includes modeling, acting, and photography. Additionally, for the past two years, I have been studying traditional Korean alcohol fermentation.

How did your love for makgeolli begin?

There are many interesting aspects of Korean culture, but my fascination with makgeolli making started with the hands-on brewing process. I’ve always been drawn to creating things with my own hands, and the combination of craft and history really intrigued me.

Plus, there’s nothing like sharing a cup of refreshing home-brewed makgeolli with family and friends—it just brings everyone closer together.

What made you want to collaborate with BOJ, and how was your experience so far?

My collaboration with Beauty of Joseon came about naturally from our shared commitment to celebrating and revitalizing traditional Korean practices. Just as I honor ancient recipes in my makgeolli making, BOJ infuses historical wisdom into modern skincare. When the opportunity arose to develop a Ground Rice and Honey Glow Mask, a product that complements both our passions for natural, effective ingredients rooted in the Joseon dynasty, it felt like the perfect match.

Working together has been a fantastic experience; it’s inspiring to see our shared values come to life in a product that bridges the past with the present.

What does your daily skincare routine look like?

My daily skincare routine is quite simple; I believe in keeping it streamlined yet effective. Although I enjoy experimenting with new products, once I find something I love, it becomes a staple in my routine for a long time.

A perfect example is the Beauty of Joseon sunscreen—it’s a product I find myself recommending to everyone I know. I’m really excited about our new rice mask, and I hope it becomes a cherished part of your skincare routine as well.


Any messages you want to convey through the mask?

With Ground Rice and Honey Glow Mask, I want to share the philosophy that the process of brewing makgeolli is not much different from a skincare routine. Both require patience, care, and a deep understanding of the ingredients and their effects. Just as makgeolli is crafted with a meticulous balance of ingredients to achieve its unique flavor and health benefits, effective skincare products are formulated with precision to nourish and rejuvenate the skin.

Through this product, I hope to blend these worlds, showcasing how traditional practices can enrich our modern lives.

Ground Rice and Honey Glow Mask


What it is

Discover the power of rice and honey with our new wash-off mask, the Ground Rice and Honey Glow Mask. This mask harnesses the power of upcycled makgeolli lees, a byproduct of traditional Korean rice wine, to deliver potent skin benefits. Enriched with natural rice hull powder and 5% honey, it provides deep hydration, improves skin texture, and helps soothe inflammatory skin conditions like acne.

Comprehensive Skin Care: All-in-One Mask
This all-in-one mask combines the benefits of brightening, antioxidant, moisturizing, improving skin elasticity, scrubbing, and soothing (cooling) effects. The synergy of upcycled makgeolli lees, honey, clay powder, and rice hull powder ensures thorough skin care in one step.

Gentle Pore and Trouble Care

Kaolin clay effectively absorbs sebum and purifies pores, while honey delivers moisture and calms inflammation. This ensures the skin is left purified and hydrated without any tightness.

Natural Exfoliation and Hydration

The natural rice hull powder gently exfoliates dead skin cells and impurities, while honey provides deep hydration and helps reduce skin troubles, making it suitable for all skin types.

Key Ingredients:

Rice Lees Extract
Upcycled from traditional Korean rice wine, this extract is rich in brightening, moisturizing, and elasticity-boosting properties. It is carefully extracted through low-temperature fermentation to preserve its beneficial components, promoting clear and vibrant skin.

Rice Hull Powder
A gentle natural exfoliant, rice hull powder effectively removes dead skin cells and impurities, refining skin texture and tone.

Honey (5%)
Renowned for its antibacterial and moisturizing benefits, honey soothes inflammation and provides deep hydration, leaving the skin smooth and supple.

This natural clay absorbs excess sebum and purifies pores, leaving the skin clean and refreshed.
