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.

Reviews & Comments 1


Now this is a beautiful thing! I love it! It is decadent and fragrant and amazing. (Or maybe that's just my opinion). If you do not like an aromatic oil, then this one is probably not the right choice. It really does absorb well on my skin even with all my other layers. To me, this oil is truly a rich Sulwhasoo experience and I love every drop. (Seriously wish I hated this whole brand! It's expensive!)


What does it smell like?


I tried this at the counter and love the texture and scent too! But I’m not sure if the oils in there are suitable for my skin, and i also live in a humid climate. I’ll probably try to get a sample!
