I am literally obsessed with Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum since I started using it last year and reviewed it here a few months back. This is one of those products that I feel the difference in my skin if I stop using it. My skin behaves better and there is a healthy glow to the skin when I have this serum in my skincare routine. In time for spring when the skin needs the most help to recover from the winter and be ready for the beautiful weather coming in, Sulwhasoo has a beautiful new collection launched last month called Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing collection which has three products – Bloomstay Vitalizing Water, Bloomstay Vitalizing Serum, and Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream.
I was invited by the Sulwhasoo team to experience the Holistic Beauty from Asian Wisdom through the facial using a mixture of permanent and new launched products. I have to agree that it was one of the best facials I had, the massage and the techniques were all so relaxing to the senses and the skin. My skin felt amazing and fresh since then, it has been almost a month now and I am all impressed with the results. Apart from the facial, it was such a pleasant experience to know more about the history, background of the products and the brand. Also, how the combination of science and ancient wisdom works wonders for skin and senses for an overall rejuvenating experience. I have been using the newly launched products from Bloomstay Vitalizing Line since then into my skincare routine.
Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing line is inspired by Sulwhasoo's iconic flower – Plum Blossoms. These resilient flowers bloom even during severely cold weather and snow. Plum Blossoms lift spirits by signifying the coming of spring and end of winter, hence have become the symbol of overcoming adversities with integrity and faith. Plum Blossom contains a powerful antioxidant that encourages more vitalized and rejuvenated looking skin. For the packaging, if you see, it is so beautiful and delicate as flowers. The jars and bottles are heavy weight plastic which feels luxurious and pretty at the same time.
Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Water is hydrating, antioxidant-rich water which also provides lasting moisturizing benefits. It has to be applied after cleansing or ideally after cleansing and applying the first care activating serum. The lightweight watery consistency applies nicely with a cotton pad or by pressing onto the skin by palms of the hand. Then comes the Bloomstay Vitalizing Serum which provides rejuvenates skin with a fresh bright glow. The serum has a texture that is smooth honey like, it glides on easily onto the skin and absorbs quickly without feeling greasy or leaving any residue. After applying the serum, you already start feeling and seeing the glow and skin is comfortable and smooth. The last step for skin care routine is sealing all the goodness applied until now with the Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream which is a lightweight antioxidant-rich moisturizer formulated with Plum Blossom. It promotes youthfully radiant, resilient, and firmer-looking skin. This cream was already part of Allure best of beauty awards for the last year 2018. The cream helps relieve skin exhaustion, firms, smooths the skin while imparting a healthy and translucent glow. This line has definitely impressed me, even for my combination skin prone to acne, I am absolutely keeping the products in rotation.
Last but not least, not to forget the lips. Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Serum Stick was used on my lips during the facial and it got stuck into my mind until the facial was finished and I was able to see what this relieving, cooling thing was used on my lips. The packaging of this serum stick is so elegant and luxurious. Essential Lip Serum Stick is a moisture-boosting lip serum that brings dull lips back to life. It deeply hydrates and creates a naturally vibrant look with delicate shades of plum blossoms to bring out the natural vibrancy of the lips. It works perfectly under other lip products during the day and also a perfect night treatment for lips to wake up with soft, smooth, nourished and supple lips.
