I was recently introduced to Sulwhasoo at the Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills, and before I start sounding off about their products as I continue to test them out I wanted to give you the facts and share my facial experience with you. As part of a promotional event I received a complementary facial and makeup application. However, I found out that one can get FREE facials from Sulwhasoo once they become a customer. More on this later!
After the facial I was seriously impressed and wanted to know more about the brand and try my best to absorb as much information as possible from my esthetician and product specialist Claudia. What stood out the most was how amazing I felt after the facial and for the rest of the day. By combining herbal medicine and holistic application I could honestly feel the impact. As for my skin, it looks better and I finally received the Gentle Cleansing Oil which I ordered online and just started using it.
I love how it gets all my makeup foundation off, but it does't take off my eye makeup. It seems to remove impurities from my pores but time will tell how well it works and I feel like I need to use a complete system for it to fully work how it's designed. More on that again later, as I work on testing and building this skin care routine for myself I will share my results. For now let me educate you on this unique beauty line, Sulwhasoo!
What is Sulwhasoo?
Time-tested holistic skin wellness regimen drawn from Korean Herbal Medicine.
Who started Sulwhasoo?
The driving force behind Sulwhasoo's unwavering commitment to Korean Herbal Medicinal Skincare began with the company's founder, Suh Sung-whan. As a young boy living in Gaeseong, Korea, a city known for quality ginseng, he mastered the insight and know-how to find the best ingredients while helping his mother and her Camellia Oil business. Wholeheartedly believing in the healing powers of Korean Medicinal herbs, he dedicated his life to finding new and innovative ways to use these herbs in skincare.
Why is Sulwhasoo for mature skin?
In Korean Herbal Medicine, it is believed that the body undergoes internal changes every seven years. At each milestone, energies within the body change. Historically at the age of 35, vital energies begin to taper and fall out of balance. As vital energies diminish in the body, the skin becomes prone to dryness, dehydration, and significantly more vulnerable to the aging process. Sulwhasoo, the first science-based Korean luxury medicinal skincare system co-developed with Kyunghee University of Oriental Medicine, blends indigenous medicinal herbs through traditional Korean methods, drawing on the ancient wisdom of the "Sang-Seng" philosophy to balance inner energies of the skin that contribute to a nourished, healthy complexion.
Since 1967, Sulwhasoo has made groundbreaking success and is gaining global popularity to this day. In 2004, Sulwhasoo advanced into Hong Kong, a city famous for its glistening nightscape and global name brand boutiques. Here, Sulwhasoo was ranked as Top3 Steady Sellers thus securing its position as a high-end luxury skincare brand. In 2010, Sulwhasoo made its North American debut, entering Bergdorf Goodman, the most luxurious department store in New York. The Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream was selected as "BG Best Pick" garnering many fans in a city named one of the fashion capitals of the world. In 2012, Sulwhasoo expanded to Singapore's Tang department store. One of the brand's all-time best sellers, First Care Activating Serum, was ranked #1 in sales and has become a must-have item not only in Singapore, but throughout Asia and the United States.
