THEFACESHOP–Nature Collection, one of the top K-beauty brands in the market, just unveiled a brand new range of age-defying skin care under Sooryehan, and I got to test it out!

Sooryehan is a holistic brand that uses traditional herbs combined with biotechnology. Infusing ginseng in each bottle of essence and cream, Sooryehan’s Ginseng Line helps revitalise and strengthen the skin from within.

Harnessing the essence of wood-cultivated ginseng, the products in Sooryehan’s Ginseng Line contain twice more Ginsenoside – an active component of ginseng – than regular ginseng, and works by boosting the skin’s energy, making it more radiant, smooth and younger-looking.

A powerful herb that has been used widely in traditional Asian medicine for over 2000 years, ginseng is rich in antioxidants, it stimulates blood circulation which in turn triggers skin regeneration, and is also highly effective in preventing and reducing signs of skin ageing and photo-damage, while increasing the skin’s hydration levels.

The Sooryehan Age Defying Skincare Collection comprises of three key products:

Ginseng First Essence, 120 ml, $69 has anti-wrinkle and brightening properties and contains Ginseng Jeonghwadn. It is also the best seller from the collection as it protects the skin from sun exposure and dust. After cleansing and toning, I gently pat this onto my face. I love how this fast absorbing gel-essence smoothens my skin texture and seems to make it look more radiant and plump. I swear that it also makes my usually large pores look so much smaller!

Ginseng Essence, 50 ml / $142,  is an anti-wrinkle treatment containing Ginsenocide 33, which is carefully extracted from ginseng cultivated in uncontaminated natural farms. This anti-ageing essence is said to keep skin looking smooth and radiant and is the second step in the routine.

I like to pump it into my palm and press it into my skin, finishing it off with gentle patting motions, to stimulate circulation and absorption. I find my skin looking much plumper and hydrated after this essence.

Ginseng Cream, 60ml / $117, is the final step to the routine. This anti-wrinkle and brightening moisturiser contains Ginseng Gyeongokdan and wild honey, which is added as it leaves skin glowing and more vitalised. This is a very luxurious moisturiser and I personally like to use it at night as it keeps my skin moisturised and protected in the dry air-conditioned air.

This range by Sooryehan makes my daily skin care ritual so much more decadent with its delicate scent and luxurious texture. My skin just looks so much plumper and radiant compared to before and I also love how pretty the bottles look on my vanity.
