Treatments (Eye) -Sulwhasoo -Time Treasure Renovating Eye Cream EX

on 11/5/2018 6:13:00 AM


The texture of this cream is unlike any other creams I am familiar with. Thick and still hydrating. I am undecided about how much I like it - will need to use for longer.

Moisturizers -Sulwhasoo -Concentrated Ginseng Cream


My holy grail FAVOURITE moisturiser, I share it between my mother, aunt and I.

First of all.... Panax Ginseng (Korean Ginseng) is on TOP of the ingredients list, which is beyond amazing. If my face is need of repair from acid treatments or needs a glow, THIS FIXES EVERYTHING...............BY ITSELF.

Both my mother & aunt have extremely dry mature skin & this cream began showing its immediate effects on the first week. They apply it morning & night on a clean face. People have started asking my mother if she had any work done recently!

This is a much stronger anti-aging, wrinkle-killing cream than la prairie & la mer combined...& you could see that just from the ingredients list. Yes the price is up there, but I fully recommend it EVEN as a one-step product! Love love love

Moisturizers -Sulwhasoo -First Care Activating Serum


Another 'luxury' Korean skincare treat which I'd been looking forward to for quite some time. This is a watery serum which pretty much vanishes into my skin immediately and doesn't sit around waiting to be absorbed. Using this in a sample size I noticed a brightening effect almost within a couple of days (especially when used alongside the Ginseng Cream) and also a slight reduction in my skins' oil production - something I was totally not expecting! The reduction I must stress was only slight, not huge and would still need to use blotting sheets by evening time.

There are some pretty amazing ingredients in First Care Activating Serum. I'm a big fan of the brightening effect of Licorice and it's good to see that is in here. For those worried about the inclusion of alcohol, it's not one of the top ingredients and normally my skin is the first to react to alcohol in products, which it hasn't so that goes to show there is not much in it.

All in all made my skin look bright, healthy and slightly less oily - pretty much all I could ask for in a serum!

Treatments (Face) -Sulwhasoo -Capsulized Ginseng Fortifying Serum

I don't know if this serum alone works wonders. But what I can tell you is that after using this serum with the ginseng eye cream, my skin is softer, smoother, and brighter. Also, I'm very acne prone but this did not clog my pores or give me any negative side effects. I just wish the price tag was not so steep. Also, I go through this every 2 months when I use it once a day but I do put some on my neck as well. But $200 CAD every 2 months just for 1 product out of the 5 I put on my face? QQ

Sadly I'm a sucker for this product as I haven't found anything cheaper that works as well. Most cheap products end up breaking me out or not doing anything at all which is worse because it's like throwing $$ in the trash. I would rather just save up my measly dollars and purchase this. I just hope that the Canadian dollar goes up so I don't have to pay so much.

Since I love both this and the ginseng eye cream (which although is only meant for eye area, I started using all over my face and it's great!), I've ordered samples from Sulwhasoo timetreasure, snowise, and hamonizen line. If the samples work well then I'll get the full size as I did with this one.

Treatments (Eye) -Sulwhasoo -Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Eye Cream

on 6/22/2018 1:55:00 PM


I just turned 32 and realized that after a close up in the mirror, there were fine lines under my eyes YIKES! Sadly in my teens and 20s, I never used moisturizers let alone eye creams. I have been living in Canada for 20 years now and most of that time was spent in northern Canada and prairies where dry and cold is an understatement. I started suffering from acne when I turned 18 and at the time the treatment for acne meant drying out your skin like crazy with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and other topical medications. Sadly, I never used anything with oil in it or moisturizers for fear that it would clog my pores and cause more acne.

Anyways, so I tried some cheaper eye creams (innisfree orchid eye cream, benton fermentation eye cream) but I saw no improvement after 30 days. I also started to notice a small amount of milia under my eyes.

I went back to the internet and did some research. People raved about this eye cream on Reddit and here so I finally caved. First I ordered samples from ebay and after using 100 samples, I decided to buy the full size. OMG the price is so steep especially right now when the conversion rate of 1 CAD=0.73 USD.

I have to say though that this cream did get rid of the fine lines around my eyes after 60 days. My eye area looks much more youthful in general and I even use it around my laugh lines. If I could afford it I would probably get a big tub of this for my entire body. Also I like the faint ginseng smell.
