Other beneficial nutrients such as Schizophyllum commune (Split gill mushroom) soften and fortify the skin’s important natural moisture barrier. This emulsion delivers nothing less than completely balanced, well hydrated skin, all while promoting a glass-like clarity in your complexion.
The special blend of hanbang ingredients in Sulwhasoo’s Essential Balancing Emulsion EX work in harmony to firm-up skin by instantly plumping and building a strong foundation upon which collagen is built.

Brand info:


This prestige beauty brand, focused on hanbang ingredients indigenous to Korea, is as highly respected in its native land as it is abroad. Proof? Locals say its Ginseng Cream is something you’d gift to a potential mother-in-law. In its earliest iteration, that ginseng cream was what launched Sulwhasoo over 50 years ago. While helping his mother’s camellia oil business, Sulwhasoo founder Suh Sung-whan came to appreciate the power of traditional Korean herbs. Working with Kyunghee University of Oriental Medicine to blend traditional Korean medicinal herbs and methods with science-backed research, Suh founded the company that would become Sulwhasoo in 1966. All of Sulwhasoo’s ingredients are meticulously cultivated in AmorePacific’s herb farm, from the saponin-rich ginseng to white lily to East Indian lotus. Its signature formula of jaumdan, which consists of five potent herbs, targets the body’s Yin energy to fight dryness, dark spots, and inflammation. In 2004, Sulwhasoo became a best seller in Hong Kong, and in 2010, the prestige skincare line made its North American debut at Bergdorf Goodman.

My skin just loves Sulwhasoo. This emulsion worked great for my oily dehydrated skin. It absorbed without leaving a greasy film. Recently started using the concentrated ginseng renewing emulsion, so will be doing a comparison. I'm hoping my skin loves this more since my wallet can't handle anymore Sulwhasoo love.

Wow, does not disappoint! Silky, aromatic wonderfulness in a bottle. Not sticky, absorbs like a dream, just beautiful. (If an emulsion can be beautiful-that is). Dang I hate this company!!! I knew I should have never tried a single product from them! I knew I would cascade down the sulwhasoo rabbit hole! So, here I sit at the bottom of my rabbit hole with a lot lighter bank account and loving every drop of their addicting substances!

EEEEEEK this is literally a gift from heaven for my dehydrated combination oily skin. And that's just after using a sample-sized version.

The scent is divine and the texture SO SMOOTH, not to mention the lack of redness and sensitivity on my face after application. Best of all, it's not thick or sticky, preparing my skin perfectly for either a cream or sunscreen.

There's a dailytap for this going on right now, so I'm just going to get my full-sized bottle-from-heaven like, RIGHT NOW.
