Here’s Why the Sulwhasoo First Care Serum Is Our Favourite

One of our all-time skincare obsessions: the Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum and Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Mask. Plus, scroll down to enter our giveaway.

Anyone who knows about K-beauty knows about Sulwhasoo. The brand is popular among celebrities and famed for incorporating hanbang ingredients—found in traditional Korean medicine, like ginseng and other herbal extracts— into their products. If you’re aware of this, then you’ll inadvertently know about its First Care Activating line, and two of their bestselling products: the First Care Activating Serum (SGD118) and Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask (SGD148).

If you like a full sensory experience with your skincare, then you’ll appreciate Sulwhasoo’s products. The herbal ingredients give the First Care Activating Serum a spicy, gingery smell that is comforting—it’s a familiar scent across the line.

In terms of texture, the rich, light brown-coloured serum is not as thick as the name would suggest. And for the First Care Serum, it’s best to listen to what the product labels say instead of the usual “thinnest to thickest” rule. It’s recommended to be used immediately right after cleansing.

The best thing about the First Care Serum has to be its ability to revitalise your skin. It gives your skin a very natural glow and radiance, the kind that everyone is trying to achieve with highlighters. I’ve been feeling less of a need to put on foundation now that the serum has been working its magic on my skin.

Add in the Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask and your skin will love you for it. It’s an anti-ageing mask with a double wrapping sheet. The rich, creamy texture of the essence provides a nourishing finish, leaving my skin glowing for hours. It also calms any redness and makes any complexion brighter and more even.

So, is it worth it? All this for a healthy glow?

Yes, definitely yes.

How to use

Best suited for: All skin types.

The First Care Activating Serum: Pat onto skin immediately after cleansing (or after any products containing active ingredients). You may mix the serum with moisturizer or sunscreen.

Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask: Use after cleansing, and leave on to absorb for 10 to 20 minutes. Gently massage in the remaining essence after taking the mask off to let it sink into the skin.
