I’ve split this post into two versions : Luxury version which feature products from high-end luxury lines, and the Budget version for the lower-mid range brands! We all know that one of the major reasons why our skin feels smooth after applying cosmetics is the silicones that are contained in it! Therefore, the products I’ve chosen are based on the long-term effects of the products, and the skin texture even after washing your skin ( to prove that it’s not the silicones that are doing the job ). Feel free to share your favourite products that leaves your skin really smooth and radiant on the comments section below!
These are not reviews, the full reviews will be posted up soon!
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence / SK-II Cellumination Mask In Lotion
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is probably the most famous essence in Asia and has been loved by many. It really leaves your skin hydrated, smooth and is also known as ‘the miracle water’ by many Asians. The other product called the SK-II Cellumination Mask In Lotion was launched a few months back which also acts as a toner essence to give you the full effect of a ‘lotion mask’ without using a ‘lotion mask’ ! This product is really amazing, and fares better than the classic SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. It really gives your skin a boost – and makes it realllly soft and radiant– to the point that you’re gonna hear a ‘screech’ if you rub your hands on your face , a must try!
Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Cream /
Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Treatment
Both products does amazing things to your skin overnight. You’ll have smooooooth radiant skin when you wake up in the morning! Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng is concentrated. It’s up at number 1 on top of the ingredient list ( unlike Water which is usually the 1st ingredient in the ingredient list – but would u pay so much for water? ), therefore you know you’ve got your value for money. Can’t afford the Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Cream? Try the Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Treatment which is just as good. Acutelobed Angelica and Pomegranate help brighten skin tone and Walnut and White Mulberry restore skin’s vitality by delivering essential nutrients.
Still don’t have the budget to try the Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Treatment? Don’t worry, try Hannule Overnight Sleeping Pack which is from the same company that does Sulwhasoo – but more affordable. You can purchase it on Gmarket for about $30USD by typing 한율 고결진액 수면팩.
3. History Of Whoo
History Of Whoo Gongjinhyang Line /
History Of Whoo In Yang Sleeping Repair Mask
Sulwhasoo’s biggest competitor – History Of Whoo. Using the entire line will give you really soft, smooth radiant baby skin, probably the best line in giving you smooth baby skin. You’ll slowly notice how this line will change your entire skin texture! However, this line is definitely not suitable for those with oily skin. Don’t have the budget to try the entire line ? Try out the History Of Whoo In Yang Sleeping Repair Mask and you’ll achieve the same effect without having to try out the entire line!
OHUI Cell Power No1 Essence / OHUI Black Serum
OHUI Cell Power No.1 Essence is really one very under-rated serum by foreigners which seems to concentrate more on Sulwhasoo or History Of Whoo. The OHUI Cell Power No.1 Serum is one of OHUI’s bestsellers and star product, and is very well known in Korea. It uses highly concentrated patented ‘SC No.1’, LG’s unique key elements from recombinant epidermal stem cell medium and recombinant dermal stem cell medium. Everything from the serum is a winner – it’s really light weight, absorbs super fast, and moisturizes your skin in seconds! Sometimes, i do not even need to apply anything else after the serum because my skin feels so moisturized, light, smooth and happy!
The other amazing serum from OHUI is the newly introduced OHUI Black Serum – more expensive than the Cell Power No.1 Essence. It’s even more liquid than the Cell Power No.1 Essence, absorbs really fast, and gives the same effect ( or even better actually ) than the Cell Power No.1 Essence. Of course, it is more expensive than the Cell Power No.1 Essence ( about $30 USD more ). This serum uses Moringa Seed extracts which has excellent purifying qualities. It also contains the Black Knight Complex which consists of Black Crowberry + Black Olive. Not to forget, it contains EGF too!
5. Su:m 37
Su:m 37 Water-full line / Su:m 37 Time Energy line
Su:m 37 has gone a looong way since it’s launch 2 years ago. It’s now a very well known luxury brand in Korea, and probably sooner or later in Asia. The reason why i didn’t put the Su:m37 star product – the Secret Programming Essence – on the list was because i felt that the SK-II Cellumination Mask In Lotion was much better. However, there are two lines from Su:m 37 that will guarantee you baby smooth skin.
First off is the Su:m37 Water-full range – the hydration range – which is everything a hydrating range should be : refreshing, moisturizing, non-greasy, lightweight, and long-lasting ! Even after washing your skin, you can feel the difference. Starting off with the toner, it immediately leaves your skin really moisturized and soft. The 2nd range is the Su:m37 Time Energy range which ‘resets’ your skin’s turnover cycle to provide you with healthy skin. This range is also really good – it even heals your acne and gives you that glow you dream off!
