Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX Review

PR Sample: I was sent a full-size sample of Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX $84 (this serum can also be purchased at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus) to review. I've never tried anything from Sulwhasoo, so I was very curious. The only thing I knew, was that their products were expensive. I knew that! HaHaHa Let me give you some background. Sulwhasoo falls under the AmorePacific Corporation which is a South Korean beauty and cosmetics conglomerate. The philosophy behind Sulwhasoo is Korean herbal medicine, holistic beauty & philosophy, harmony & balance and treatments that view the body as a whole. Sulwhasoo has several serums (age prevention, brightening, correction, hydration, dark spots & uneven skin), but the First Care Activating Serum (for glowing skin) is to be used day and night right after cleansing. You are to use 2-3 pumps and gently press your palms on your face to help absorption. I wasn't as graceful as the woman in the video below LOL, but Sulwhasoo encourages this type of beauty ritual (technique). It takes getting use to, but it is very therapeutic. This serum is formulated with a "JAUM Balancing Complex™ that assures a glowing and healthier look by harmonizing the balance of skin". The JAUM Balancing Complex™ is an 18-hour process. JAUM Balancing Complex™ is for dry skin caused by aging. "The complex nourishes and firms the appearance of the complexion for healthier looking, glowing skin." "Used as the first step after cleansing, the serum helps boost YOUR NEXT skincare product’s absorption, usage, and results. It’s suitable even for customers with delicate or sensitive skin" So let me share my results and thoughts with you! I have super dry skin. I also have sensitive skin. I've used this serum for several weeks now and three things happened. My skin looked plumper, firmer and had a wonderful glow after using this product. It's a brown serum. I would say it has a clinical scent. I like that the serum isn't sticky or heavy. My skin absorbed it right away. It sinks into the skin quickly. It doesn't sit atop. Again plumpness, firmness and a wonderful glow were my results. This serum is very nice alone, but I bet when you pair it with Sulwhasoo's entire skincare system it works even better. Sulwhasoo has an array of cleansers, toners, waters, moisturizers, eye care, sun care and even makeup (I didn't know they had makeup). You can search for products based on your skin type. I'm impressed with this serum and in the future I would like to try more of Sulwhasoo's products. This serum does what it says. Nothing less. Nothing more. Have a great weekend everybody! More reviews soon :D
