Was extremely honoured to be able to attend the first SULWHASOO flagship store opening in Capitol Singapore two weeks back! If you don’t know, SULWHASOO is the #1 Korean Luxury Skincare Brand and this opening was to celebrate their 100th global store and its first flagship store in ASEAN region. Before attending their launch, I have used never used SULWHASOO products before but have heard positive reviews of their BB Cushion! Hence, I took this opportunity to get the BB Cushion this time due to the fat discount given.
MORE ABOUT THE BRAND

In addition, each of the guests who attended also received SULWHASOO First Care Activating Serum EX.
FIRST CARE ACTIVATING SERUM 60ML (S$115)
First Care Activating Serum is the first boosting essence based on Asian medicinal herbs, and is applied right after cleansing. It creates optimal skin conditions where any treatment products used thereafter become more effective. First Care Activating Serum has retained its number 1 position on the bestseller list for the past 18 years since its release.
First Care Activating Serum EX is Sulwhasoo’s signature product, which is characterized by JAUM Balancing ComplexTM, Sulwhasoo’s key ingredient and unique formula that embodies the brand heritage. Based on five precious ingredients that are carefully selected from 3,000 herbs identified from the traditional medicine classics, JAUM Balancing ComplexTM replenishes the yin deficiency and restores skin balance, leaving the skin smooth and hydrated and brings the skin’s nutrition, vitality, clarity, resilience and regeneration back into balance.
In 2015, First Care Activating Serum EX presents a new, exclusive experience of ‘the utmost radiance’ by upgrading JAUM Balancing ComplexTM with Sulwhasoo’s proprietary technology to take the efficacies of medicinal herbs to a higher level.
As JAUM Balancing ComplexTM, an optimal formula of five precisous medicinal herbs, meets PREXtract ProcessTM, Sulwhasoo’s new proprietary technology that increases the content and number of active ingredients, First Care Activating Serum EX presents a greater boosting effect and optimizes skin balance to increase product effects.
We were each also given a super pretty 3D dimensional press release kit which includes a packet of medicinal herbs to make soup with! How thoughtful of the SULWHASOO PR Managers!
Five precious ingredients of JAUM Balancing ComplexTM
Peony: addresses the yin difficiency, and its tannin and paeoniflorin have soothing effects on skin.
Rehmannia: achieves excellent moisturizing effects by stimulating circulation and protects skin from uneven tone and complexion against aging.
Sacred lotus: restores mental vitality and replenishes body fluids and moisture, adding radiance to skin.
Solomon’s seal: supplements the yin energy and adds elasticity to the skin.
White lily: has calming and nourishing effects that spread across the body and enrich the mind.
I love the BB Cushion! Used it immediately the next day after purchase. It brightens up my skin tone and leaves it looking not too dewy but just nice with that soft after glow finish! I liked how it helps to accentuate my jawline and structure of my face shape.
Being the #1 best seller, the First Care Activating Serum is amazing. I have never tried medicinal beauty products before and have always thought the smell would put me off but this did not! I love the medicinal smell! The serum was on the moisturising side but yet non sticky and oily after. The downside however is it is probably too expensive for students and the younger girls out there. I believe working ladies would find this a real treat though.
Thank you for reading! Hope you guise enjoyed this post xx.
