Updated Skin Care Routine with Saranghae

January 27, 2018

It is safe to say that my last skin care routine was over a year ago and things have changed. 💖 I was looking to step my care up a bit especially during the bitter winter months and Saranghae must have read my mind and reached out.  Saranghae is a Korean anti-aging skin care company that was looking for my honest review and that is what I am about to give you.  I did not pay for these products but my opinions are 100% my own.

I have been using their 5 Step Anti Aging Skin Care products for almost a month. The kit includes an oil+foam cleanser, a firm and lift regeneration cream, a deep radiance serum, an eye cream and the absolute BEST facial mask I have EVER used in my adult life, the elemental essence mask.  The entire bundle retails for $159 and you can find it here.  You can read what they have to say about their products on their website which I have already linked three times on this post.  I want to talk about my experience, shall we jump in?

I have to admit 5 steps/ 5 different products was a bit overwhelming for my sensitive skin and at first seemed to be drying my skin.  Now, in fairness I started using these products during the coldest NYC week in history!  I am talking about weather in the 5 degrees with the windchill making it feel like -10, it was crazy!  Could have been the weather, could have been switching my skin care from a simple argan oil morning and night to now 5 products day and night.  I played around with it a little, it became clear that modification to suit my skin was necessary.  Instead of using all three creams morning and night, I dropped the cream and just used the serum and the eye cream at night after using my foam cleanser in the shower.  It worked!

1) Oil + Foam Cleanser

This cleanser is the real deal.  It is made with truffle extracts and gold (yes you read that right, gold!).  Three pumps on dry, clean hands is all you need to remove all of the days makeup and soot off of your face.  Note: Your skin has to be completely dry when applied, when in the shower use warm water to lather into foam, careful around the eyes, beauties!  The effect is that this cleanser left my face feeling completely cleansed and tight.  Loved it.  It also just feels so luxurious. I enjoyed taking those extra steps to really pamper myself, the gold flecks in the cleanser didn't hurt. :)

2) Deep Radiance Essence + Serum

So, you are fresh out of a yummy shower, your skin feels pampered and it doesn't stop there.  I applied about three pumps of the serum onto my clean and dry face.  There is an interesting smell to this serum, its not a heavy smell, it almost smells medicinal but not in a bad way.  I mean these products are anti-aging creams so the smell made me feel like it was filled with anti-aging agents which was a plus.

3) Focus Renewal Eye Cream

After applying the serum and waiting a minute for it to dry I would focus on my under eye area.  Again just two or three pumps was all I needed to cover under my eyes. Done!

4) Elemental Essence Mask

Ok, I will start by saying I am pretty well educated in the art of face masks so when I saw the elemental essence mask included in the bundle I didn't think much of it.  That was until I used it! Ok so I "mask" on Sundays after a delicious hot shower and all of my other skin care routines (you can't neglect your body skin, it ain't all about the face but that's another post).  I typically go for drugstore face masks and they are unremarkable, they get the job done and I feel pampered and ready for the week of makeup applications.  But this mask is a game changer! Once applied, you leave it on for 15-20 minutes.  It is soaked in serum that seeps into your skin while you have the mask on and AFTER!   You don't wash it off, so the seam works even after you have removed the mask.   I apply it at night and rub the excess serum on my face and neck, go to sleep and the skin I wake up to is glowing, clear and tight.  It really is a great mask!  If you get nothing else I highly recommend this mask if you are serious about skin care.

Bottom line: Once I modified the routine to fit my skin care needs I loved it!  It might seem like a lot of products and/or steps but I keep telling my readers you are worth the extra time and care.  We are such caregivers and often times we neglect our own care.  This routine felt like a long overdue, grown up skin care regiment.  I will continue to use these products even after my complimentary set runs dry.

Also, for my close readers might be wondering if I only use this at night, what do I use in the mornings? I clean my face with a cleanser and apply some argan oil and a Clarins Beauty Flash Balm before I apply my foundation.

A special thank you to the amazing Saranghae family for reaching out and sending me their amazing products.

I hope you enjoyed this skin care update as much as I enjoyed writing it.

with love,
