Around the same time last year, I shared about Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Collection, here, which I really enjoyed in my skincare routine. The new Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Eye Cream has launched, just in time for spring when everything including the skin is emerging from the harsh winters and changes in weather bring with them the need for extra care of the skin. 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 they 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.
The newest addition to the Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Collection, Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Eye Cream is an eye gel-cream that delivers anti-oxidant energy of plum blossoms to take care of the bags under the eyes, add resilience to the eye area, and makes the eyes look revitalized. There is a massager that comes complimentary with this eye cream, called Jamak Massager, it helps the eye cream to stimulate micro-circulation in the skin around the eyes, and also deliver the immediate cooling effect. The fatigue around the eyes is also minimized. The eye cream feels fresh and bouncy, absorbs quickly into the skin, and the eye area feels hydrated, soothed, radiant, lifted and firm. There is a subtle pleasant scent that fades quickly. The eye cream melts into the skin quickly without leaving residue.
Regarding the packaging, if you see, it is so beautiful and delicate as flowers. The jar, the same as the rest of the range, is heavyweight plastic which feels luxurious and pretty at the same time.
Apart from the Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Eye Cream, I am also loving two face masks from the brand which I have been using together or alone depending on how my skin feels. Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask and Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask have become my most reached out for masks these days. For my combination skin prone to acne, I was more excited to try the Clarifying Mask but after trying both of them, I am so glad that I tried the Overnight Vitalizing Mask too.
Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask is a peel-off mask that thoroughly removes dead skin and impurities from the skin, resulting in clear and soft skin. I cleanse my skin and apply the mask on my dry skin, you do not need to put a thick layer of the mask, even a thin layer also works. This mask fits tightly onto the skin, removes impurities and dead skin, tightens the pores making the skin smooth and improving the texture. It did not dry my skin but definitely I would recommend applying something hydrating after the mask. For me, it is either a Hyaluronic Acid Serum or the best one I always use is the Overnight Vitalizing Mask.
Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask is a traditional Korean herbal sleeping mask that is nourishing and helps skin restore its natural radiance. The ingredients strengthen the skin's protective barrier, moisturizes and soothes the skin while providing the nourishment. At first, I thought it would be heavy for my skin type but as I have used it many times now, it is just perfect. It makes my skin look soft, supple, and radiant the next day, with no breakouts or irritation. This is also perfect for the lazy evenings when I can just cleanse, follow with this mask, and still can wake up with good skin. The formula is light and creamy, absorbs into the skin nicely, does not feel heavy at all.
Overall, I am really impressed with the new eye cream as well as the masks, they have become a staple in my skincare routine for spring and summer.
