The Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Treatment is a leave-on mask that you apply after the final step of your nightly skincare routine. It has a white and rich cream texture that just require one or two additional strokes for it to be fully absorbed into your skin. Surprisingly, despite its cream texture, it does not leave any greasy after-feel and it smells herbal with a hint of floral...not overpowering...just a hint to make the product not smell overly herbly..haha... The recommend washing-off methods was to avoid using foam or soap, and use just water. Yea, just water to rinse off and your're ready for your morning skincare routine! How convenient~
Skincare tip : Application diagram from Sulwhasoo website.
I just randomly slather the Overnight Vitalizing Treatment on my face, didnt follow the application guide. For those hardcore skincare fanatics, feel free to try it out!
"Contains acute lobed angelica and pomegranate help brighten skin tone as well as walnut and white mulberry, delivering essential nutrients and restoring skin's vitality. Creating an essential moisture layer on the skin, this mask assures optimum penetration of nourishing herbs while you rest." - Description of Overnight Vitalizing Treatment
Acute lobed angelica is actually Dang gui, a herb that is used in traditional chinese medicine, commonly used to treat women's menstrual woes and general health by regulating blood circulation. I'm not really sure how white mulberry and walnut helps to restore skin's vitality though.
After using the Overnight Vitalizing Treatment for for the whole month of January, my skin looks glowy and radiant!!(the kind of radiance you get when you have enough sleep?)... There was some oil shine on my face in the morning, but nothing that can't be solved with a face wash. Since the consistency is creamy and pretty thick, a little dollop actually goes a looooong way~ I do recommend this to normal-dry skin indivduals who are concern with dull or uneven skin tone, do not think it's meant for dark eye circle though. For oily skin indivduals, the Overnight Vitalizing Treatment might be a little too rich for the skin, might want to just apply a really thin layer to avoid pore clogging. Or you may choose to avoid emulsion or moisturiser since the Overnight Vitalizing Treatment is pretty hydrating.

So i got like 6 items, and after doing the math, shipping for each item is only SGD1 for registered mail!!

Do note that the Overnight Vitalizing Treatment is meant for achieving radiant skin, or to some extent, even skin tone. If you are interested in skin whitening, perhaps the White Ginseng Brightening Mask is better suited. Will be doing a review on it soon, stay tuned~!
