Sulwhasoo Skin Care Kit IV

Hey everyone!

This is an overview of the Sulwhasoo Skin Care Kit IV!

We as American women, over the age of twenty-four are more conscious than ever about our appearance, in the modern world. In fact, after health, the sign of aging is our second largest concern. Yet, seventy-five percent of us spend less than seven to ten minutes a day on our beauty care needs. The alarm sounds and we are off and running for the day. We jump in the shower and in less than five minutes we shampoo and condition our hair, bathe, shave, rinse and towel off. In the next two minutes, we comb our hair, brush our teeth, apply a little makeup, and get dress. If we’re lucky, we can grab a quick bite before slipping on our shoes and heading out the door. Surprisingly, when we return home from a busy day, there still isn’t any time for ourselves. By the end of the evening, we’re all guilty of splashing a little water on our face, and calling it a night. Our skin is as tired and run down as we are, and it shows!

On the other hand, women in Asia are meticulous in their beauty care regiment. Many use sixteen to eighteen beauty products, and spend at least half an hour in the morning and evening, cleansing and moisturizing with essences, serums, gels, and mask that are created from nature to achieve a blemish free and glowing complexion.

Let’s be honest, spending one hour a day on ourselves sounds dreamy and that’s just what it is, a dream! With that being said, it doesn’t mean we should continue to neglect ourselves anymore. That’s why I’m happy to announce the wonderful skin care line of Sulwhasso! A Korean herbal medicinal brand that embodies the wisdom and asthetics of Sangseng.

Sulwhasoo philosophy is simple:

Everything begins with beautiful nature.
The noble wisdom and mind of women that resembles nature;
The elegant beauty from the wisdom and mind;
Nature and people, body and mind, all share their roots of beauty.

Here is some information on Sulwhasoo's Skin Care Kit IV.

First Care Serum

The very essence of herbal medicine, bringing brighter richer skin! Sulwhasoo’s First Care Serum contains extracts from JaEum, JeumboWeeDan, Astragalus Membranaceus and Jujube. Astragalus Membranaceus, which takes the root deeply in the ground and grows with the earth’s spirit, will protect your energy, and Jujube amplifies the effect of the other ingredients. The serum will reduce skin dryness and make it bright at the beginning stages.

How to Use: Use morning and night just after the cleansing phase. Dispense the appropriate amount on the palms and apply to the skin. Massage gently with fingertips and palm for faster penetration.

Balancing Water

Sulwhasoo’s Balancing Water is a gel-type skin toner that contains extracts from JaEumDan, JaEumBoWeeDan and portulaca. This toner is especially good for dry skin. This unique gel-type toner penetrates into the skin gently, but extremely quick as well, creating a thin moisture film on the skin’s surface. This moisture film helps keep the ideal moisture level of the skin by providing a constant supply of moisture.

How to Use: Use morning and night after the cleansing stage or First Care Serum phase. Dispense the appropriate amount on the palm and apply gently, slowly along with the skin line while smelling its scent. This is to enhance skin penetration using the body temperature and energy of the hands and to create a comfortable state of mind.

Balancing Emulsion

Sulwhasoo’s Balancing Emulsion is a nutritive skin emulsion that contains extracts from JeEumDan, JaEumBoWeeDan, and portilaca pleracea, which are especially good for dry skin. It penetrates deep into the skin, providing abundant nutrition and moisture to the skin, leaving a silky texture behind.

How to Use: Use morning and night. Apply after Balancing Water. Dispense the appropriate amount on the palm and apply to the throat and face using either the fingertips or the palms.

Concentrated Ginseng Cream

The next generation cream contains ginseng ingredients that treat the skin from deep inside. To enhance the effect of ginseng, a group of three herbal medicine extracts (angelica, cnidium officinale and morus alba) have been capsulated by Korean herbal medicine pill technology to promote skin penetration.

As women naturally lose Yin energy with age, women may feel themselves lacking in vitality as they become older. This Ginseng Concentrated Cream supplements three lacking elements of the skin, kinds of deficiency in the skin. Mysterious extracts from ginseng and other herbal ingredients contained in Ginseng Concentrated Cream will revitalize your skin with Triple BoEum Effects (complementing the weakened negative principal in one’s being).

The particular secret of Ginseng Concentrated Cream is ginseng. The power of ginseng is based on the spirit of Korea and the supreme efforts of those who grow ginseng with true hearts. Ginseng Concentrated Cream is the result of the study conducted by the Amore Pacific Research Institution over 60 years.

How to Use: Use morning and night after the Balancing Emulsion. Dispense the appropriate amount and gently apply all over the face. Press the face gently to help deep absorption into the skin. After using this cream, wait three minutes before applying your makeup.

Sulwhasoo natural skin care line is a refreshing find in contrast with today’s chemical enriched beauty products. Their formulas are designed to combat the signs of aging by delivering extra moisture and nourishment to dry skin. The products are quite expensive, but beautiful skin is priceless!
