Let’s test an incredibly unique, popular & highly rated Korean face cream namely Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream. Here’s my review.
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream is a Korean face cream based on old traditional Korean skin care ingredients from the Joseon era. This “creme de la crΓ¨me” is packed with well-known, timeless & powerful ingredients such as Korean ginseng, orchid extract, honey, hyaluronic acid and centella. The cream has anti-age properties treating wrinkles and lines and promoting firmer skin with improved elasticity. It’s also brightening. Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream can be used as a night cream, massage cream or a sleeping mask.
This is the first product I’m testing from the Korean brand Beauty of Joseon. I bought this face cream after a tip from a friend. Basically I had no expectations of this product, but testing it with an open mind.
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream comes in a very nice packaging. The jar is made out of glass, and the lid is covered in some a kind of handmade (?) rice paper with a string around it. You know that classic jam jar look from books and movies. The packaging feels very premium, luxurious and elegant I have to say. The formula originates from the Joseon Era and the skin care used by the top 1% women.
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream comes in an elegant lux packaging with attention to details. Very nice indeed!
The first time I opened the lid of Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream, I was very surprised by the consistency and texture of this face cream. It’s kind of viscous in the jar. The product looks like thick white glue to be honest. The texture of the cream is quite airy and “gluey”, as one would expect a snail cream to be. Even though the cream isn’t very heavy or thick itself, it’s still nourishing and moisturizing the skin very nicely. The skin immediately feels soft and smooth. A little goes a long way, and a small amount of product is sufficient for the entire face. Sticky feel but nothing too bothering. The scent is gentle and embracing, like a hug from grandma. No heavy ginseng smell or anything like that! Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream doesn’t feel cheap at all, but a good quality face cream in my opinion.
I liked Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream from the very first moment I tried it, although the texture is very unique and special. The skin feels smooth, soft and properly moisturized. I would mainly recommend the Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream as a night cream for mature skin, dry skin and possibly even combination skin. Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream can also be used as a massage cream or a sleeping mask. The more I use this face cream, the more I like it. And after a while, the texture becomes slightly firmer inside the jar, in comparison to the first time I opened the lid.
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream is a very nice night cream for 15 euros. Incredible value for this quality I feel!
Overall, Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream is a very nice face cream / night cream. Plus for the moisturizing softening effect on the skin, plus for the gentle and lovely scent. Big plus for the price of this face cream which is around 15 euros with free shipping from Korea! Unbelievably cheap price for this kind of quality I think. I really have nothing bad to say about Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream at all. Maybe the glue-like texture may not be for everyone though. Still, I love this cream. Good job Beauty of Joseon. High ratings from me, Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream is the best!
