Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream:

Ginsenomics™ is the essence of Sulwhasoo’s research on ginseng, the popular herb with unending health benefits. Korean Ginseng contains more than 30 different types of ginseng saponins. This has allowed the brand to create its latest Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream that comes infused with the anti-aging properties of the short-rooted herb. Its silky-soft formula helps skin look firmer, smoother, and more refreshed. Additionally, it bears a weightless yet hydrating texture that absorbs quickly and leaves behind a subtle scent of ginseng flower.

First Care Activating Serum Advanced:

Sulwhasoo spent 24 years of research into Korean herbal medicine and its anti-aging technology for the skin-moisture barrier, and created the First Care Activating Serum Advanced. When the key element is activated, the vitality hidden inside your skin awakens and protects the skin moisture barrier inside and out.

Lip Sleeping Mask Berry:

The LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask uses Vitamin C, shea butter, and various fruit extracts like raspberry, strawberry, and goji berry to soothe and soften lips. It hydrates your lips by gently melting away the dead skin leaving them soft and supple. In 2021, the brand launched its high-selling, hydrating lip mask in five additional refreshing scents and flavours – Mint Choco, Gummy Bear, Sweet Candy, Vanilla, and Lemon Sorbet, other than the classics – Berry, Grapefruit, and Apple Lime.

Radian C Cream:

Empowered by dual vitamins, Radian C Cream delivers radiant, bright skin just two weeks. Vitamin C helps in removing dark spots and dullness, while Vitamin E moisturises and Melasolv brightens the skin. It also improves the natural clarity of the skin and effectively strengthens skin barrier that gets weakened by harmful UV and blue light damaged by 67 per cent in just an hour of exposure to the sun!
