Let me start this by saying my skin has been terrible lately. Pregnancy hormones, then postpartum hormones and the complete lack of routine skincare due to utter exhaustion has unleashed havoc on my skin. Let’s not even talk about the cold, harsh winter we had up here in New England this year which has also caused my skin to become incredibly dry. So when I got the opportunity to try Saranghae skin care line, I jumped at the chance.
Let me tell you a little about this skin care line. Saranghae is a Korean skin care line that offers skin care products including the 5 step routine that I tried out. The 5 step routine includes a cleanser, radiance essence and serum, firm and lift regeneration cream, a renewal eye cream and an elemental essence mask. All of these products include unique ingredients to make your skin glow. To learn more about Saranghae Korean skin care line and to read their love story head to the Saranghae Website
Step 1: Saranghae Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser
This cleanser includes truffle extract and gold (yes, you read that right) and claims to not only fully cleanse your skin by removing makeup and grime but hydrate and soften the skin as well.
Step 2: Deep Radiance Essence and Serum
This offers both healing and anti-aging properties that claims to penetrate into the deep layers of your skin to get at the living cells. This serum contains the Sang Hwang mushroom which helps in neutralizing free radicals that cause wrinkles. Other ingredients include collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Used consistently the serum will help prevent dry and flaky skin, neutralize skin cell waste by-products and balance the skin’s potential pH level to prevent flair ups, inflammation and breakouts.
Step 3: Firm & Lift Regeneration Cream
Blended in this cream is the Sang Hwang mushroom as well as antioxidants, amino acids and regenerative peptides leading to softer skin while diminishing age spots and redness. Used correctly and consistently this cream will repair damaged skin cells, reduce inflammation, hyper pigmentation and age spots. It is also proven to reduce wrinkle depth and length.
Step 4: Focus Renewal Eye Cream
Ingredients include the Sang Hwang mushroom, adenosine, vitamin B3, elastin and collagen. When used correctly and consistently this eye cream can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce dark circles underneath eyes, and lifts and firms loose skin around the eyes.
Step 5: Elemental Essence Masks
These masks are infused with CoQ10, and hyaluronic acid, peony tree, asiatic pennywort and chamomile flower. When used consistently these masks will also help diminish fine lines and wrinkles as well as eliminate redness and irritation that is caused by stress and pollution. Saranghae states that after first use your skin will feel more radiant.
So let’s first start out by defining what my skin type is. I have extremely dry skin that is prone to breakouts when I have hormonal shifts and when I don’t wash my face at night before going to bed (I know this is terrible, I’m working on it). My face rarely gets oily so I guess I’m lucky in that regards. However my face does become red and blotchy at times and I also have extremely sensitive skin. I am super picky about what I use in regards to skin care and wouldn’t have used this product unless there was something that drew me towards it. As much as I don’t want to admit it, I am getting older and the idea of an anti-aging serum as well as statements that my skin would be softer and brighter made me want to try this out. I was given these products for free in exchange for my review. However, all opinions that I make in the following are my own.
When the package arrived I was ready to dive right in and give these products a go. While there were descriptions in the box on how to use these it is best to head to the Saranghae website and check out their videos on how to use these products because there is a certain way to apply these for maximum results.

The first step is the cleanser and I will say that this cleanser is unlike any cleanser I have ever used before. The instructions say to place the cleanser on dry hands and rub on face. This step is to allow the oil to work it’s magic and dissolve your makeup. After this, you are to wet your hands and rub together creating a rich lather and then use this to continue washing your face, rinse and pat dry. The second step is the deep radiance essence cream which you dab lightly all over your face. Once that is dried you use the third step moisturizing cream all over your face and neck.
The fourth step is the renewal eye cream which I applied to my eyebrows and under my eyes. The last step is the essence mask. This is only to be done once per week. Place mask on face and leave on for about 15-20 minutes. Once time is up, remove the mask and rub the remaining product on face lightly then rinse. That’s it! It may sound like a lot of work but the routine takes me less then 5 minutes which is doable for even the busiest person.
So lets get down to what everyone here wants to know. Does this skin care line with it’s unique ingredients work? The website states that you will have skin that is firmer, brighter, softer, stronger and clearer in 45 days. Immediately upon using the Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam cleanser my skin felt softer. I will say that after about 3 weeks of continued use every night of the 5 step routine (with the mask once a week) I have noticed that my skin is brighter and softer. I have noticed also that the dryness to my skin is now gone. I also feel as though I can wear less makeup and my skin will still look amazing! I can’t for sure say that these products have made my face clearer mostly because like I have said my skin is prone to breakouts with hormonal shifts and I just underwent a big one with the birth of my daughter. Another thing I would like to add is that even with continued use for the past 3 weeks I still have ample amount of all the products left. With these products, a little goes a long way.
So does Saranghae Korean skin care deliver on it’s promise to give you better skin? More importantly is it worth the money? I would have to say that this skin care line does deliver on it’s promise to make your skin brighter, softer and firmer. I have noticed changes to my skin after the 3 weeks of continued use and am excited to see what the full 45 days brings. You receive ample amounts of products and with free shipping and handling as well as a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied means you have nothing to lose in trying this skincare line out! Give it a try for yourself and I’m sure you too will create your own love story with Saranghae!
