This Sulwhasoo review will first focus on the individual products and then as a whole.
Sulwhasoo First Care Serum Review
Sulwhasoo First Care Serum has the color of healthy maple syrup, and a smooth, fresh consistency. Two small pumps is enough to cover your face, yet it does not have a dramatic impact on skin. Most serums leave a sticky tight residue, but First Care Serum hardly leaves a trace. Though it feels comfortable, one wonders if it actually does anything a serum is supposed to do.
Sulwhasoo Balancing Water Review
Sulwhasoo Balancing Water alone is not much use. This “gel-based toner” refreshes the skin and leaves it feeling clean — without any miraculous effects. However, the beauty of this product occurs when paired with the Sulwhasoo Balancing Emulsion.
Sulwhasoo Balancing Emulsion Review
Sulwhasoo Balancing Emulsion is the standout product of the set. The best feature of the Emulsion is that you can use it alone and bypass the whole time-consuming skin care ritual. It provides nearly instant hydration with fresh, yet minimal, fragrance. Sulwhasoo’s Balancing Emulsion leaves an overall dewy texture and is an absolute pleasure to use.
Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Cream Review
Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Cream Review is meant for anti-aging purposes, which means it’s the most expensive product in the line. As described in my other Sulwhasoo article, the Concentrated Ginseng Cream is VERY earthy and completely unlike typical chemical-enriched anti-aging creams. If you have ever peeled back the skin of a weed, such as a dandelion, and smelled its milky white insides, the Ginseng Cream mimics the same sharpness. Your initial reaction may be of disgust or earthy admiration, but the smell fades away in seconds and your skin is protected with a shield of moisture.
When used together…
What the Sulwhasoo set boils down to is a serum, toner, moisturizer, and cream. The serum provides a nice base for the Balancing water, but doesn’t feel necessary. Skin will feel like a clean slate if the Sulwhasoo Balancing water toner is applied afterward. Best of all, the toner acts as a magnet to Sulwhasoo’s Balancing Emulsion, and together, they provide great moisture. Additionally, the Concentrated Ginseng Cream acts as a wonderful shield, particularly against frostbitten weather.
The Beauty Bitch’s Advice
Buy Sulwhasoo Balancing Emulsion alone or opt for both the emulsion and Balancing Water. For icy climates, the Concentrated Ginseng Cream works wonders, but don’t expect it to permanently reverse time, as no product really ever does.
