FULL REVIEW Rating 5/5
I just love Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX. A well-known cult classic product, and a very popular best-selling serum in Korea. The product is refreshing, moisturizing and deeply nourishing. A high quality product with a sense of luxury! Almost like liquid gold. Wonderful scent of medicinal herbs, ginseng and a hint of citrus. I immediately get a SPA feel and I really understand why this is one of Korea’s best and most popular serums. Pretty thin in texture with a translucent brownish golden color. The product is absorbed quickly and becomes almost watery rather than oily on the skin. Like a fresh splash of moisture and nutrition. I just love Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX. The serum works very well together with the face cream in the same line: Sulwhasoo Essential Firming Cream EX.
I can’t see anyone who wouldn’t appreciate Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX, young and old regardless of skin type. The skin is beautifully nourished, soft, resilient and moisturized. I can’t give this korean serum anything but top ratings. If you have dry skin however, I would recommend Sulwhasoo Essential Revitalizing Serum which is a bit thicker in texture, more like a light gel cream. Both serums do hold top quality in my opinion!
A wonderful high quality serum, liquid gold for the skin. Beautiful scent of medicinal herbs and citrus. Buy samples to save money.
