I’ve always had a pretty good skincare routine. After having Gray, I stopped doing my nails and I would go a year without getting my hair done. The one thing that stayed constant was my skincare routine. I never go to sleep with make-up on, and I cleanse my face with a good cleanser using a Clarisonic Mia (if you don’t have one, you NEED one in your life.) I also used good moisturizers, and wear at least SPF 70 moisturizer on my face during the day.
As I get closer and and closer to 30 (I’ll be 30 in June, gasp), I’ve started to get a little more serious about my skincare products. I was so excited when Saranghae reached out to me offering to send me their 5-step skincare routine in exchange for my review. I was actually already familiar with the brand, and had been dying to try their products.
Before I even tried their products, I was already so impressed with their customer service and unique marketing approach. I literally received the products a day after confirming that I would like to collaborate with them.
I made sure that I had been using the products for a month before I wrote my review, so that it could be as accurate and honest as possible. Now let’s dive in so I can give you a break-down of the 5 -step routine I’ve been using for the last month!
Step 1: Saranghae Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser
It was love at first use with this cleanser. I have sensitive skin and it’s gentle, but somehow still manages to remove all of my make-up. The thing that’s unique about this product is that it combines the deep pore cleansing power of an oil cleanser with the effective make-up removal of a foam cleanser. Instead of stripping your skin of good oils, it hydrates and nourishes it. Ok now let’s get to the BEST part. This cleanser is formulated with both Truffle Extract and GOLD. Yes, GOLD. It doesn’t get much more luxurious than that ladies. It also contains 20 other botanical essential oils that have insane healing properties. I use it with my Clarisonic for the ultimate cleansing experience.
Step 2: Saranghae Deep Radiance Essence + Serum
So I’m all about radiance, especially when it comes to my face. I think that what my skincare routine had been lacking was a good serum, and this one was just what I needed. Most serums only stay on the surface, but this one was designed to penetrate your outer dermal layer to deliver crucial nutrients (think antioxidants, amino acids and vitamins) directly to your living cells! It also contains plant based placenta, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which all help heal and regenerate your skin. I’m basically obsessed with this serum, and I apply it with my Michael Todd Sonic Eraser Pro every night.
Step 3: Saranghae Firm & Lift Cellular Regeneration Cream
This is probably one of my favorite creams that I have ever used. The texture and consistency of this cream is unlike anything I’ve ever used before. It’s creamy, and extremely hydrated without being heavy or oily. The benefits include decreasing the formation of free radicals by up to 220% (Yes please), diminishing of age spots, decreased redness and less visible signs of aging. It contains a natural blend of antioxidants, amino acids and regenerative peptides that leave your skin so smooth and supple.
Step 4: Saranghae Focus Renewal Eye Cream
I apply this eye cream in the morning and at night, and I love that I can wear it under my make-up. It’s formulated with mushroom extract, vitamin B3, elastin and collagen that all help diminish wrinkles, lift an firm the eye and brighten the appearance of dark circles around the eye. For a sleep-deprived mama, this eye cream was basically an answer to my prayers. I have noticed that I look less tired, and my dark circles have diminished!
Step 5: Saranghae Elemental Essence Mask
I would like to preface this by mentioning that the first time I tried this mask, my husband ever-so-politely asked if I could please never wear it around him again (apparently I scared him haha). Anyways, this mask is pretty amazing other than that. It has a very intense formula that makes you look more radiant after ONE use! After using it several times, it has reduced my sun spots and pigmentation. After using the mask, I make sure to remove any remaining serum in from its package and I slather it all over my face, neck and chest. I never let a single drop go to waste because it is seriously MAGIC.
I’m extremely skeptical about skincare products and their effectiveness. Even though I was already dying to try this 5-step skin care system, I can honestly say that it was even better than I expected. The products contain so many unique and effective ingredients, and I love that they’re extracted from natural ingredients. I seriously look forward to my skincare routine every night, and I love how my skin looks every time I’m done. My face is brighter, smoother and more radiant since I started using the Saranghae products. If I had to pick a favorite product I would have to pick the serum or the moisturizer. The mask is great too-OK I LOVE THEM ALL!
