Sulwhasoo Herblinic Restorative Ampoules Review (UPDATED!)



Highly concentrated Korean herbal medicinal ampoules that restore skin balance to quickly restore aggravated skin.

Herblinic Restorative Complex restores damaged skin and restores skin balance for healthy skin with strong resistance against external aggressions.

Highly concentrated ampoules that embrace the skin in a thick, dense texture stays on the skin for a long time for lasting nourishment.

According to Sulwhasoo-blogspot , this serum can be used to heal acne. It certainly didn’t say so on it’s website so once i read this, i tried it right away that night since i had the sample, and it really did heal my acne breakout i’ve been having for the past 3 days!

This ampoule/serum is a 5 week home treatment program and is sold in 5 pump tubes of 7ml. Each tube is to be used for 1 week and all you need is a small tiny amount.

Like the discontinued History Of Whoo line – Chung – which was made for oily acne skin, this serum fills the lacking Yin energy inside the skin and balances it by taking away ‘heat’ from the skin. These terms are very chinese-medical terms, so you’d definitely get what i mean if you are familiar with chinese medicine.
