My Love Story with Saranghae Skin Care Routine

My goal in life is to prevent my face from looking old and haggard. I will do anything to keep my skin glowing and firm. When I first heard about the Saranghae Skin Care Routine, I immediately jumped at the chance to try it. Being a new mom, there are many days when I don’t have time for myself. I am fine with not knowing the last time I fixed my hair or had a pedicure. The one area where I have tried not to let myself lapse in is my skin care. I am always looking for ways to prevent the aging process and I felt certain that adding the Saranghae Skin Care Routine to my life would help.

When I first heard the Saranghae Skin Care Routine included 5 steps, I panicked a little. How was I going to add this many steps to my already over-packed daily routine? After going through the steps, I found it to be incredibly easy to fit in my schedule. By the second day of trying the Saranghae Skin Care Routine, I was a pro at it and was finished in the bathroom in almost the same amount of time as usual. It’s really four steps as one of the steps (the mask) is not meant for daily use. All you busy moms out there can breathe a sign of relief as this is completely doable for you too!

Of course I did a little research on the Saranghae website to learn more about this company and the products. I was surprised to learn that the roots of this company can be traced to a family heirloom that dates back almost 600 years! For a huge history nerd like myself, this is amazing to learn. It is said that herbs and plants found outside a remote volcanic mountain in South Korea possessed healing properties for skin ailments. Saranghae is focused on healing the skin rather than simply covering up the aging process with creams and ointments. This information alone was enough to get me excited for my first experience with the Saranghae Skin Care Routine.

The Five Step Routine

Saranghae Nourishing + Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser

This is the first step in the Saranghae Skin Care Routine. I loved using this cleanser! Two of the ingredients are truffle extract and real gold! I know there are other important ingredients, but how fun is it knowing you are putting gold on your face? I immediately felt fancy. This cleanser is also a make-up remover so I was able to eliminate my normal make-up removal routine. I felt like I was in a spa every time this cleanser foamed up. You simply rinse the cleanser off and then this step is finished. There is no need to use a wash cloth. Immediately after using the cleanser, my face felt clean and moisturized. Usually my face feels dry after washing and this was a pleasant surprise.

Saranghae Deep Radiance Essence + Serum

The serum has a light and uplifting smell to it. I loved putting it on my face. You don’t need a lot of this product to cover your face and neck. It feels so luxurious going on your skin. The serum includes mushroom extract, collagen and hyaluronic acid as some of the ingredients. To quote Saranghae, “the result is a skin that efficiently heals and regenerates every moment of every day.” I learned it is best to let the serum fully absorb into your skin before moving on to the next step. This still only adds a few seconds to the full routine. My skin did feel slightly tighter right after applying the serum.

Saranghae Firm & Lift Cellular Regeneration Cream

The regeneration cream was my favorite step. The cream feels rich and you don’t need much at all to moisturize. I loved rubbing it between my fingers and then massaging it into my face. I would do circular motions until it was all absorbed and my face would feel hydrated all day! To quote Saranghae again, the cream “will decrease the formation of free radicals and reduce damage due to oxidative stress by up to 220%”. In other words, this cream takes care of signs of aging. While I have only used this product for two weeks, I can’t attest to a decrease in wrinkles or fine lines, but I love how my skin feels after applying this cream. This is definitely the best moisturizer I have ever used.

Saranghae Focus Renewal Eye Cream

This is probably the quickest step in the whole routine. The eye cream is very light and goes on the skin so smoothly. This cream is meant to reduce signs of aging around the eyes as well as lighten dark circles. As I said before, I have only used the Saranghae skin care routine for two weeks so I can’t say I notice any lightening of dark circles yet. However, I am a new mom and I don’t get a lot of sleep most nights so there are other variables impacting the look of my eyes.

Saranghae Elemental Essence Mask

This is the first sheet mask I have ever tried! It definitely looks like a Halloween mask when it is on, but it was such a fun experience. The mask contains CoQ10 and Hyaluronic Acid. There is no shortage of product included on this mask. I actually had a tough time keeping the mask from sliding off my face as it had so much serum on it! This was fully appreciated as I had extra serum to rub in my face when I removed the mask. I did notice a slight tingle during the process which made me feel like it was working to tighten my skin. It was very easy to put on and by the time I put my laundry away, it was time to take the mask off!

Overall, I would definitely recommend this skincare line to anyone trying to improve the look and feel of their skin. It also provides for an at-home spa experience. After the first day, my cheeks were rosy pink and I felt my skin had slightly more glow already! My skin definitely feels more evened out, which to me means it’s not too dry or greasy. For me, the most noticeable difference is my skin first thing in the morning. Before using the Saranghae Skin Care Routine, my eyes tended to be puffy and my forehead greasy every morning. Since using the Saranghae Skin Care Routine, the skin around my eyes feels more supple and hasn’t been as puffy in the mornings. My forehead isn’t greasy when I wake up anymore and my entire face feels nourished.

I am very happy with how my face looks and feels. I will continue to use the Saranghae Skin Care Routine and look forward to inspecting the fine lines and circles under my eyes in hopes they will diminish over time. Check out my video below to hear my thoughts on Saranghae and watch me illustrate my favorite step! Saranghae means ‘I love you’ in Korean. I think this alone exemplifies the feeling I had when using this product. Thank you to Saranghae for such a wonderful experience!
