Sulwhasoo: Korea’s Best-Kept Secret
Walk into any department store’s beauty department and you will be overwhelmed with skin care options, all promising to keep your skin clean, healthy and youthful. You’ll most likely end up trying everything at least once and in most cases, without success.
However, there is one line that you may not have tried, that delivers what it promises. Sulwhasoo is Korea’s best-kept secret when it comes to skin care, and up until recently, it was not available in the United States.
We were lucky to be invited to the brand new Sulwhasoo counter at Bergdorf Goodman to try their signature Ginseng facial and experience the wonders of the line first hand.
Sulwhasoo uses a mixture of five different traditional plants to help restore harmony to the skin and is prepared according to Donguibogam, the authority on Korean Herbal Medicine, first published in 1613 and now inscribed into the Register of the World Memory.
The signature ginseng facial helps to promote relaxation and reduce stress. The Sulwhasoo regimen is a four step process with 3 additional steps added in for different needs.
Our recommended products include:
- First Care Serum: This serum helps to boost the effectiveness of your regimen. An added benefit of using the First Care Serum is that your make-up will sit and look better on your skin.
- Revitalizing Serum: This serum acts as a type of skin purge, helping to push all of the toxins in your skin to the surface, so you are left with healthy, radiant skin.
- Concentrated Ginseng Cream: Using the highest amount of concentrated ginseng allowed by Koren government, Sulwhasoo is the only company granted this permission, and passes this benefit off to you in this amazing cream.
- Skin Clarifying Mask: This 3x weekly peel-off mask uses honey to keep skin moisturized, while effectively pulling impurities directly out of the skin.
Sulwhasoo is available only at Bergdorf Goodman and bergdorfgoodman.com.
