OK, full disclosure here: I wanted to not like this cream. It comes in the kind of excessive packaging – a jar in a pouch in a plastic housing in a box in another box with a cellophane wrapper – that suggests that either
a) the folks at Sulwhasoo didn’t get planet Earth’s memo about the need to minimize waste and conserve resources
b) their Concentrated Ginseng Cream contains nuclear material, hence the need for inordinate layers of containment.
Also - ginseng is one of my less favorite fragrances. I’d rate it somewhere in between wet dog and that piece of frittata I just discovered in my fridge that I had meant to eat back in early October; not repellent per se, but kind of fascinatingly bad nonetheless.
Having said all that, I admit: this face cream is amazing. Ridiculously good, bordering on miraculous. I love it. My skin looks radiant. Strangers ask what I use on my skin. Friends suspect I may have met someone - my skin has that glow.
I just really, really hope it’s not radioactive.
