Review: Sulwhasoo Luminature Essential Finisher

By 17:29 , ,

I thought having a really good night or day cream was the final step to a skin care routine but it seems the Koreans have come up with an extra step. The new Sulwhasoo Luminature Essential Finisher is designed to be used as the last step in your daily skincare routine to maximise  the efficacies of skincare and achieving overall natural brightness as well as luminosity.

It works by gently embracing the skin to form a natural protective barrier and enhances the efficiency of preceding products by locking the active ingredients into the skin for a glowing, luminous and naturally radiant skin. Sulwhasoo Luminature Essential Finisher contains Locsamhyo, a proprietary blend of Green Tea and Korean Red Ginseng, is the key ingredient of Luminature Essential Finisher that enhances brightness, clarity, glow and moisture level to the skin. Green Tea purifies and boosts up the effect of other ingredients while Red Ginseng helps to regenerate the skin and strengthen inner skin regeneration. Each bottle has an equivalent power to the concentrates of 5 roots of ginseng and 110 cups of green tea.

The Luminature Essential Finisher comes in bottle wrapped in Korean traditional mother-of-pearl inlay inspired by a Korean artist who specialises in mother-of-pearl art. The pump dispenser easily controls the amount needed in the application, so you don't end up with extra product. The texture is like a really light cream that absorbs easily enough. The colour although white, has a light pink iridescent base which is not obvious when applied but I noticed it when I left some product on the back of my hand for a few seconds. So that's part of the ingredient that's meant to give the complexion that luminous glow while locking in all the skin care products used before it.

I am always wary of anything with a pink base whether it is in makeup or skincare because it doesn't go well with my skin tone. After trying this out for a few days, I can't say I have noticed any difference with it locking in all the benefits from my other skin care products or it making my skin more hydrated but my complexion started to look off colour. A little over a week I decided to stop using it because I started to look grey and dull. The thing about some products that targets luminosity or radiance is that it tends to "correct" yellow undertones to give you that "healthy pinky glow" which I have mentioned before and just don't understand because I have no issues with my yellow undertone. So after noticing the face and neck colour difference which was not only obvious when I was bare faced but also really noticeable with make up on, I decided that this product is not for me.

However if you are into achieving luminosity and radiance with a pinky glow then you might want to try this out. The Sulwhasoo Luminature Essential Finisher retails at RM280 (80ml) and is available at Parkson branches - Pavilion KL, 1  Utama and Gurney Plaza, Penang.
