For my huge pores it made a great difference when I used it in the morning, they were smaller and tighter. Kept oiliness at bay for 10+ hours. The only problem with this formulation is that it pills awfully under sunscreen (organic or mineral) and makeup. Currently I use it in the evenings only, but I can still see results the next day. I guess that the ingredients for a more pleasurable texture (silicones maybe?) would interfere with the absorption of the actives in the skin.
I tried a lot of sunscreens for my oily skin and this one is the perfect multitasker: it provides sufficient hydration, protects from UV rays all year round and is the ultimate primer for makeup ( I guess that the Zinc Oxide creates a barrier between the sebum and the makeup). I tried to find some "dupe" for this, because of the price, but 60 ml will last for approx. 6 months so in the end is well worth it. For my skin tone (light medium) the tint is invisible so I can get away with just this sunscreen on the "make-up free" days. Love. love, love it!
Many moisturizers claim they are not pore-clogging, and yet they contain comedogenic ingredients and cause me to break out. This is not the case with this one. though it does not actively treat my acne, it is a great moisturizer to follow up my active treatments and keep my skin hydrated. I use this one at night, and the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 35 for daytime, and have not experienced any problems. It can get a touch shiny, but I think I'd rather have a glow than parched skin, and a little facial powder or blotting takes care of it. Love it!
I have purchased set of 30 samples, which got me about 15ml of cream. This cream, like all sulwhasoo products, is very expensive and I am not ready to spend that much money on it. Although I think this eye cream was the best I have ever used. It has herbal scent and very thick consistency. It does not absorb quickly nor completely. It leaves kind of residue on the skin which, for me, was very comfortable during the day. It holds make up very well and makes skin moisturized and protected all day. I am not sure if my fine lines was improved, but my eye area looked definitely better, smoother. I will repurchase this eye cream, but only in sachets.
This was the very first peeling gel I have ever used. Since then I have tried few others as I like to explore a big world of Korean beauty out there....but I know I will come back to this one one day. Everything is perfect about this product. Fruity scent is nice and not to strong, consistency is thick and creamy, It spreads on the skin nicely and after few seconds you can feel the bits start working. They are not too small, not too big, not too harsh, just perfect. This kind of peeling is different from traditional scrub. Its not that effective, much more gentle, but when use often it makes skin smooth and bright. It is so gentle that it can be used on a daily basis. I use it about twice a week. I would recommend it for any skin type.
Crushed walnut shell powder is a really harsh exfoliant that will leave microtears on your delicate facial skin, and they're prone to inflammation and infection after that. If you have this product around, it is far more appropriate as a body scrub or foot scrub than a facial care product.
Walnut shell powder is an incredibly strong physical exfoliant that is absolutely not appropriate to use on the delicate skin on your face. If you have this around, it is appropriate as a body scrub (I still would rather go with a sugar scrub), and especially it can probably not cause damage to calloused feet, but other than that, this is a terribly harsh product you should not purchase.
Do not use any scrub containing walnut shells on your face, let alone acne-prone skin. It is too harsh of an exfoliant and will worsen your acne. The salicylic acid in this product does not offset the four other pore-clogging ingredients, let alone the microtears the walnut shell will leave on your poor skin. If you have this around, it is fine to use occasionally on the body, and especially feet, but please do not put this on your poor face!
