This New Korean Facial Mask Might Be The Best One We’ve Tried All Year

We’ve tried and tested easily over a hundred facial masks so we’re not easily impressed. But this one from Sulwhasoo knocked our socks off.

Any skincare junkie worth their salt uses facial masks. After all, they are the vitamin supplements of the beauty world, they might not be strictly necessary but are extremely beneficial. And while I love my masks (I apply them once a day), it has been quite some time since I’ve been so excited by one.

The Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask is not your typical sheet mask. The first thing you notice is its texture. The plush, almost cushiony sheet has a unique, almost creamy texture that feels lusher than your usual serum-based sheet masks. When you remove the mask, it leaves behind a light layer of cream that you can massage into your skin for extra hydration.

The anti-ageing mask is also chock full of skin-loving ingredients. It has eight times more Compound K (the anti-ageing ingredient extracted from ginseng roots) than the brand’s iconic Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream EX. Its cocktail of powerhouse ingredients includes ginseng root extract, which is said to boost collagen and hyaluronic acid production, while restoring skin’s regenerative abilities at the same time. It is also infused with ginseng flower extract that increases skin’s defensive properties while also treating dryness, loss of firmness and dullness.

And while the Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask’s resume is impressive, it is its results that I’m in love with. After just 20 minutes, my skin felt immediately softer and smoother and appeared brighter and more translucent. Fine lines appeared less obvious and my overall complexion appeared plumper. I’ve been using it once a week and over time, I noticed my skin also became more resilient, less sensitive and less prone to breakouts. It has literally become my new beauty must-have.

The Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Creamy Mask is available now at $148 for a box of five sheets.
