Soosul Skin Review

Hey everyone! I hope you all have been doing great! It’s been awhile and I’m sorry. It’s been really hectic in my part of the woods. However, I’m back!

I wanted to come on here and do a mini review on the Soosul Skin that was sent to me. Here’s a little snippet about the company!

Soosul Skin is a cruelty-free, natural, organic and luxury brand made in South Korea created in 2002. We’ve heard about all the hype about mushrooms in coffee and foods right? Well Soosul’s main ingredient in their products is Sang Hwang (Phellinus Linteus) mushroom and is one of the very first mushrooms that Korea has been certified to be used for medicine. This Phellinus Linteus mushroom has outstanding anti-aging and antioxidants. Soosul Skin created products for men and women to help with hyperpigmentation, dehydrated skin, wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots.

Purifying Foam Cleanser

This is a cream to foam cleanser. There’s about 0.5% of SangHwang mushroom extract that’s packed with antioxidants to cleanse and purifies the skin. The scent is very light, it has a very light grapefruit and green tea scent. It isn’t overbearing at all. It indeed is a cream base and I did notice there was a very small amount of grit to the cleanser almost like a scrub which I personally like. The skin type recommended for this product would be for everyone really: normal, oily, combination and dry. I myself can be a bit dry in the winter so the fact that this cleanser turns to foam, is a dry skin’s dream. This product would help with acne, blemishes, oiliness and pores. Honestly sometimes, when I just use the cleanser, my face really does look lighter.

Collagen Boosting Essence Serum

This essence serum is a powerful treatment used after cleaning your face. It contains 10% of the SangHWang mushroom which deeply penetrates into the skin to improve the skin’s natural barrier function and has moisture-holding capacity. The scent again is not very strong, it has a light fragrance. This serum helps with dullness of the skin, uneven texture, dark spots and pores. It also helps with all of the skin types. I love to use this in the morning after cleansing and toner and at night before bed, it gives a supple look and really does make your skin soft and hydrated.

Hydrogel Essential Sheet Mask

I haven’t really seen a mask like this. It actually has 2 parts! The top part of your face (until the nose) and the bottom part which covers under the nose. The scent is a little strong but it’s doable. This mask contains 25mg which gives your skin radiance, hydration, smoothness and plumpness in 10 minutes. You could even leave the mask on up to 30 minutes! A little trick I use is after applying the mask, I like to go over it with a jade roller so the mask can really take more effect. This mask works for all skin types and will help with fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and uneven texture.

They also sent me a few samples: Ginseng Cream with 15% consistency and the Revitalizing Eye Cream infused with 10%.

I always love trying new brands and this one was amazing to try! I would love to eventually love to try out the Neck Firming Cream because lets face it, not everyone pays attention to the neck as we age unfortunately. Take a look at their website, you can’t go wrong. They even have a FREE skin quiz to see which products would benefit you and your skincare needs. If you like what you see and want to try it out, please feel free to use my discount code for 10% off. CHRISTINA10

Gunilla of Sweden Nutrient Rich Body Lotion Review

Hey loves!

So sorry for the long wait in my posts! I just started my last semester of college and it’s already overwhelming.

I was given the Gunilla of Sweden Hydro-Organic Skin Care Nutrient Rich Body Lotion to try and review and have been playing with it for quite a long time now.  I have to admit I love it! But before I tell you why, I just want to give you guys the run down about this special product; its not like your average normal body lotion.

Lets take a look at the name brand lotion when you break apart the ingredients:

Name Brand Body Lotions

*70% is water: No nutrients, No Healing Vitamins

*10% Mineral Oil “Pore Clogging”

*5% Animal products “Lanolin”

*5% Harsh Preservatives

*10% Synthetic Fillers & Emollients

ABC-> Active Botanical Content is 0% (that can’t be good, right?)

Now lets look at the :

Gunilla’s Aloe Based Nutrient Rich Body Lotion 

*65% Organic Aloe: anti-inflammatory and proven to heal skin better than many prescription drugs

*12% Organic Pomegranate, Strawberry

*3% Natural Preservatives and Emollients

ABC-> Active Botanical Content is 77%(way higher thanthe name brand)

The sad thing is that people want to buy the high end brands because they think since they’re paying lots of money for it, that it’s the real deal. But in reality, its quite the opposite. I’m not saying that I think people shouldn’t buy high end brands, I mean we all do it, I would just say not to buy so much.

The name brand body lotions as you can see has lots of different ingredients but none are natural, they’re mostly chemicals.

My Opinion:

The packaging label is adorable in my opinion. Its an oval shaped sticker with the border being gold.

It smells like the beach to be honest. Like aloe and a little fruity. Its really soothing and makes your skin baby soft. I tried it when I had a sunburn and it felt like one of those after sun creams. It really helped with my sunburn! I was sunburned on my shoulders and put the lotion on twice a day, it was gone within a week but then it start peeling. Long story short, I used it twice a day and the peeling wasn’t all that bad from my experiences.

It’s 12.8 fl oz (380 mL) for the price of $25. Not bad at all!

Here’s a link to anyone who is interested about it.
