⋆ Review: PyunKangyul Skincare ⋆
It’s time for another review! But
let’s mix things up a little - it’s getting hotter and more humid by the day.
And as you know, that means it’s time to change your skincare routine. So
today, let’s explore a simple yet effective skincare regimen and simultaneously review some of Pyunkang Yul's most popular items! Ready?
By now, many K-Beauty skincare
enthusiasts out there have at least heard of this brand in passing. Why’s it so
1. It was launched by renowned
oriental medicine clinic Pyunkang.
This institution is within the top 3 Korean centers specialized in treating
skin disorders. And they’ve taken all their experience, all their knowledge and
poured it into this skincare brand.
2. In this day and age, our skin is
bombarded by pollutants and harsh chemicals from a variety of beauty products
we choose to slather on our skin. Pyunakang Yul knows this and that’s why they’ve
chosen to remove all unnecessary ingredients to leave only the minimum, most
necessary and safe ingredients. Don’t believe us? Then check it out for yourselves! Most cosmetics
comprise of approximately 30~60 components whilst Pyunkang Yul
holds a mere average of 12!
Befitting its origins, Pyunkang Yul’s
skincare line is held within luxurious
navy / royal blue bottles encased with a label made from Hanji –
Korean traditional paper. Simply beautiful!
Step 1: Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner
Unlike other toners out there, this
particular one is far more viscous and thick. In fact, it applies almost like a
light weight essence (hence the name) and leaves your skin feeling incredibly hydrated!
Quick tip: Apply this with a cotton
pad as the thick texture of the toner will adhere to any waste products and
remove it from your skin!
Rating: 4.5/5 (Love this)!
Step 2: Pyunakng Yul Moisture Serum
Next is the application of the serum.
This particular product contains Barberry root extracts to help reduce the
temperature of your skin and calm any irritations. It’s also part oil and part
moisture to ensure your skin is as hydrated as possible.
Despite this, I was pleased to find that
it didn’t have that greasy finish that’s often associated with oils. It was
light, creamy and absorbed well.
That said, I was not a fan of the spoid! Not
only was it finicky to use but it barely pulled up any of the serum. It was a lot
easier to simply tap out the product!
Step 3: Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream
The final step is to lock in all the moisture! But before we continue, can we please take a moment to admire how
gorgeous this product is?
The cream is thick and applies like a
dream with a neat,
clean finish devoid of any stickiness.
Despite its dense texture, the cream felt
light on my skin! And that’s what makes it perfect for the warmer months when
the humidity is high and your skin feels oily!
Psst! In the evening, try applying the cream in
excess as it can double as sleeping mask!
And that’s it for your simple spring /
summer skincare routine (don’t forget your sun cream though)! As for an
overview, I loved the products!
1. I’ve been travelling a lot lately. And that,
for me, means dry patches and the occasional spot. However, thanks to the
religious application of these products, I’ve been able to keep all these
issues at bay!
2. Despite how thick they appear, the
products all feel incredibly light weight which make them absolutely perfect for the warmer months!
