Skincare Self-Care: Build a Routine with
In times such as ours, self-care is imperative to our well-being. In case you were wondering (and the jury agrees across the board), skincare is a form of self-care, which is why it can do you a lot of good to settle into a skin-care routine that answers to all your needs. If you don’t know where to start, Sulwhasoo’s Bloomstay Vitalizing Line is a stellar introduction to setting up an easy to follow skincare routine, especially if you want to eventually graduate to the uber popular, uber effective 10-step Korean skincare routine.

Sulwhasoo’s Bloomstay Vitalizing Line launched in North America in 2019 and has been incredibly successful ever since. The prestige Korean skincare brand delivers holistic beauty, focusing on using natural ingredients and long-held ancient Korean secret herbal medicinal ingredients that are now making waves in the skincare community and across skincare launches, such as ginseng for example.
For skincare newbies, here’s a tip: ingredients matter, especially since our skin absorbs said ingredients. The Bloomstay Vitalizing Line mainly makes use of the powerful antioxidants of plum blossom buds. Plum Blossom extract can reduce visible signs of aging, as well as hydrate and plump the skin, leaving skin feeling clearer and younger. The line also uses Yuzu Extract, which helps brighten, stimulate collagen, and promotes anti-aging rejuvenation. But that’s not all – the line also includes plum, red bean, quince, Korean pine seed, and black sesame, all of which provide a variety of benefits, such as improving skin’s firmness, clarity, and translucency.
So, how can you incorporate the Bloomstay Vitalizing line into your routine? Not to worry, we explain what each product does, and how it can help you achieve your 2020 #skincaregoals. Even more, read on to see how you can win the entire Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Line, including their brand-new Eye Cream.
Condition with the Vitalizing Water
Moisturization is super important in skincare and even more in Korean skincare. After cleansing, the Vitalizing Water is the first step in the Bloomstay Vitalizing Line as it acts as a conditioner for the skin, leaving the skin moisturized and smooth. This will leave your skin nice and moisturized, as well as target wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin. It’ll also ensure your skin is ready to absorb heavier products, making it an essential step in your skincare routine. $99 for 150ml available at Sephora
Treat with the Vitalizing Serum
After using your favourite toner, turn to serums. Serums are incredibly important in treating the skin, with plenty of serums on the market to treat specific skin concerns. Serums penetrate deep into the skin, and often contain a high concentration of active ingredients that provide the skin with the nutrients it needs to tackle a skin concern. The Vitalizing Serum is perfect for restoring skin resilience and the texture of your skin, leaving your skin nice and refreshed.
Make sure to apply all over the face, and to gently press the product into the skin to make sure your skin fully absorbs the wonderful ingredients this serum has to offer. $120 for 30ml or $192 for 50ml available at Sephora
Give your eyes some TLC with the new Vitalizing Eye Cream
Brand new to the line, the Vitalizing Eye Cream is the icing on the cake. Eye creams are not to be forgotten – the skin around your eyes is not only the thinnest, but also the most delicate, so it needs all the care it can get. Eye cream is crucial in diminishing wrinkles, darkness, and puffiness. This eye cream protects the eye area from everyday stimuli that can cause pre-mature skin aging around the eyes by instantly cooling and moisturizing the skin and infusing the skin with the beneficial antioxidants of plum blossoms. The eye cream comes with a cooling eye massager, which you can use to gently massage the undereye area to enhance circulation and promote de-puffing. $132 for 20ml available at Sephora
Lock it all in with the Vitalizing Cream
Heavier creams are great for creating a barrier that locks in all the previous products and all the beneficial ingredients that you just used, as well as providing much-needed moisture to finish off your routine. The Vitalizing cream is a light cream that protects the skin against external stimuli and aging and adds another touch of softness and resilience to your skin. Apply to the entire face for a touch of springy skin and deep-seated moisture. $205 for 50ml available at Sephora
