Review: The History of Whoo Hwanyugo Essence

~The History of Whoo Hwanyugo Essence~

First and foremost, I am sorry I haven't been updating my blog! I have been really busy, but have managed to find the time today!!! :D 

Today I will be reviewing one of Whoo's famous product, Hwanyugo Essence, from the Hwanyugo line. Just a note: I have used this product for more than 3 months - day and night!!! This product is definitely an investment if you want to achieve flawless skin. The price tag will really make you turn away, but in all honest opinion, this product is worth it! In South Korea, the Hwanyugo Essence is much cheaper than in North America - here it costs over $500, but in South Korea it is around $300 - not bad at all!!! The Hwanyugo Cream is way to expensive, and for 60ml (which is a lot), I decided to purchase the essence - since I had no essence at the time. This review will be long haha so please bare with me! :)

The star product is Hwanyugo (purple series). Limited in production due to scarcity of its medicinal ingredients like the Snow Lotus, 35-year-old Wild Ginseng, AsparagusSiberian Young Antlers, Dongchunghacho and 60 other herbal ingredientsThe Hwanyugo line by The History of Whoo is a masterpiece for skin that works to rejuvenate its appearance by ten years. This premium line is marked by its excellent quality, artistic philosophy, craftsmanship and scarcity. The products are created through the finest, dedicated research each step of the way. 

What is Serion Germanium?

Selenium and Germanium are known for their properties of regulating each cell of the human body. Serion is effective in promoting metabolism, cell mobility, physiological functions, preventing ageing and skin problems.

Review: The History of Whoo Hwanyugo Essence is an essence targeted for fine, deep and stubborn wrinkles - guarantees to make skin look 10 years younger - very alluring hehe :P. The texture is very rich. You can see the germanium particles when observed closely (like silver dust) - and when you rub the product against your fingers (about a pea size), it really heats up. There is NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING artificial about this product. From the scent, to the texture - everything feels luxurious. I was sold with this product - this really is a luxury item! When you apply the product onto your face, make sure to massage gently, then lift your face outwards. This product really sinks into the skin, without any stickiness - and it plumps up your skin immediately. I applied this product even around my eyes and neck. My laugh lines and fine lines around my eyes disappeared! The scent is very pleasant and VERY FAINT - the scent of lotus and herbs is very soothing to the mind and is not overpowering like other Whoo products. After using the Hwanyugo Essence for 3 months, and still going - I have noticed that my face has remained plumped, and it is not temporary. The texture of my skin is VERY SMOOTH and there is a healthy radiance to the skin which the whitening products did not produce. I cannot stress enough that many Korean skin care products are targeted to TREAT the skin - so the results are longer and may be permanent if you take good care of your skin. THIS PRODUCT WORKS!!! 

I would recommend this product for anyone really - prevention is key in anti-aging, and for those who are concerned with wrinkles, this product will not disappoint. If you have dry skin, this essence is VERY moisturizing and hydrating to the skin. If you have oily skin, I recommend using this essence at night only - and do not apply a lot of the product - about half a pea-size. Never forget to warm up the product to activate the ingredients!!! But please be reasonable - this product is really expensive, and if you don't have it in your budget, don't buy it - unless you wish to order from South Korea, which is much cheaper! :) Nonetheless, you do pay for what you get. I was a bit skeptical with this product at first (even though I am in love with The History of Whoo products)- but you have to allow this product to work and treat the skin for at least a month until you see full results. Do not miss use it either (use according to instructions): warm up the product with your middle finger, and massage gently around the face. Dab the remaining around the eyes - and begin with lifting techniques (I have a diagram in my Nok Yong review). Then warm up both palms and wrap your face (inhale and exhale in a relaxed state) - then wrap your neck and lift your neck upwards gently - trust me, these techniques make a difference!!! Unfortunately the ingredients were written in Korean - but I will be visiting The History of Whoo and will ask them for the ingredient list (hopefully they let me take a picture of it!!!) :).

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask! I will be responding to comments very soon! I am writing my other reviews and it will be posted soon :)

Much love to all!!! <3!!!
