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.

I'll be honest, I don't have sulwhasoo money, but I would circle one of three beauty stores on my way to work and take a sample of this nearly every day I loved it.


A friend got me this as a gift and I am so thankful to her for introducing me to a revolutionary serum. Sulwhasoo is one of the oldest successful Korean beauty brands, and this continues to show in their rich blend of traditional ingredients. This serum turned my dull winter skin into a dewy, hydrated look in just a few weeks.


My favorite serum to date. . Instant glow back into the skin and with continued use you get a radiant-glass-glow back to any skin. I would advise this to any skin type except very sensitive due to the bit of fragrance in there. I'm not a big fan of fragrance in skin care, however, Sulwhasoo gives such a promising result that I make an exception for them everytime it seems.
