Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum Review

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum Review

This is my first indulgence in Sulwhasoo; I am pretty sure it is not the last after using the products for over a month. The first thing that attracts me to a brand is its ideology and beliefs. Sulwhasoo believes that natural beauty starts from the good state inside and out by addressing skin conditions at a fundamental level. Sulwhasoo is the first luxury brand to combine ancient Asian wisdom and legendary Asian medical herbs with advanced modern science to offer holistic beauty solutions that restore the delicate equilibrium between body and mind, bringing harmony and balance to the skin.

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum has been Korea's No. 1 selling serum consecutively for the last 20 years. As an essential first-step serum applied immediately after cleansing. The First Care Activating Serum boosts a glowing and healthier look by replenishing dehydrated skin, which is the root cause of all skin troubles. Also, the serum prepares the skin and boosts the absorption and efficiencies of subsequent skincare products. Above all, it is suitable for all skin types, including delicate and sensitive ones.

My Review

I have been using the First Care Activating Serum since last month and am amazed at the results. First, I will start with the packing. It is a heavy bottle look and feels so smooth and lush; the shape and colour give a beautiful holistic vibe by just looking at it. The serum is lightweight and absorbs pretty fast into the skin. The skin feels nourished, balanced, and radiant after using it. Also, I could see the radiance even after applying it for the first time. With the passing of time and using it continuously, my skin looks and feels more balanced, hydrated, smooth, clear, as well as glowy.

The products I use after this serum seem to work better with it. Also, the makeup stays on pretty well over it, with no makeup rolling off. I apply this serum after cleansing my face. The brand has a defined Balancing Beauty Ritual focussed on how to apply the First Care Activating Serum. First, cleanse the face, and rub both hands together to generate warmth. Then apply 2-3 First Care Activating Serum pumps onto the palms. Next, I place the palms together, inhaling and exhaling gently to soothe the senses. Then, press the hands firmly, cupping the cheeks, cup the forehead, and then the chin.

Finally, the delicate eye area helps absorption, followed by the Emulsion, Serum, Eye Cream, and Moisturizer depending upon my skin's needs.
