I nonetheless bear in mind the first Korean skincare I tried some 20 years up to now: it was a sheet masks soaked with gooey, beige-colored ginseng extract. Once more then, Korean pink ginseng a.okay.a. panax ginseng was hyped for its anti-aging and detoxifying outcomes, and this ingredient attracted many people to hanbang magnificence.
Hanbang is the Korean time interval for typical Korean medicine, which relies on centuries-old practices. The Seventeenth-century Donguibogam texts compiled by royal physician Heo Jun by way of the Joseon Dynasty are generally cited when concocting typical medicinal formulation. Merchandise containing extreme concentrations of beneficial herbs like ginseng are sometimes dearer than completely different sorts of skincare merchandise. Fortuitously, I’ve not too way back discovered Korean mannequin danahan, which provides additional wallet-friendly anti-aging ginseng merchandise which can be out there in luxurious-looking packaging.
Primarily based in 2004, danahan obtained its title by combining the phrases dana (dame) with han (wholeness). The Okay-Magnificence mannequin for the time being carries 17 product traces, all of which can be rooted in hanbang concepts. The mannequin makes use of pink ginseng saponins licensed by the Korea Ginseng Corp (KGC). Ginseng saponins are the foremost vigorous ingredient in ginseng, which is believed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The Bon Yeon Jin Anti-Wrinkle Line
I’m undecided what bon yeon jin means, nevertheless based on the Korean characters, it would suggest “to spice up pure pores and pores and skin.” In response to the brochure included inside the skincare models, the Bon Yeon Jin line was developed based on the concepts of yin and yang. In typical Japanese medicine, homeostasis determines properly being. An imbalance in yin and yang or congestion of jinaek (essence) results in premature ageing, which is likely to be prevented by boosting the pores and pores and skin’s functionality to absorb and metabolize nutritional vitamins. Two typical Korean medicine cures are used inside the Bon Yeon Jin line, one initially meant for strengthening the spleen and the other for clearing the physique of additional phlegm. The mix of parts inside the formulation helps to understand harmony of these energies and improve basic pores and pores and skin properly being.
Does this all sound pretty imprecise to you? Don’t worry, danahan lists out the necessary factor parts utilized in each set. The Bon Yeon Jin line boasts concentrated panax ginseng root extract, chrysanthellum indicum extract, white poria cocos extract, magnolia officinalis bark extract and roasted licorice root extract. Crimson ginseng retains pores and pores and skin clear and company, whereas the other parts soothe and detoxify pores and pores and skin.
To complete my skincare routine, I tried the three Bon Yeon Jin current models that features a toner, essence, emulsion and face cream. Let’s check out them one after the opposite!
A nice current in your mom or BFF, this generous set incorporates the Anti-Wrinkle Pores and pores and skin Toner and Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion in every full dimension (160ml) and journey dimension (31ml), along with a mini mannequin (10ml) of the Anti-Wrinkle Essence in a pump bottle.
This set contains a full bottle (50ml) of the Anti-Wrinkle Essence and travel-sized variations (31ml) of the Anti-Wrinkle Pores and pores and skin Toner and Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion.
This set contains a full tub (50ml) of Anti-Wrinkle Cream and travel-sized variations (31ml) of the Anti-Wrinkle Pores and pores and skin Toner and Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion, plus ten cotton pads.
Proper right here’s a breakdown of the 4 featured merchandise:
The toner is out there in a sturdy and stylish beige gold pump bottle. In distinction to most toners which have a watery and clear texture and color, danahan’s toner is a bit of bit dense and beige in color. It’s even denser than Hada Labo’s Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Lotion which is by far my favorite toner for winter. The Anti-Wrinkle Pores and pores and skin Toner’s fragrance is enticing, although some might uncover it too sturdy. No matter its thick consistency, the toner unfold on merely and immediately absorbed into my dry pores and pores and skin, leaving a clear and non-sticky finish.
Bon Yeon Jin Anti-Wrinkle Essence
The essence is form of a denser mannequin of the toner. Carrying a barely sweeter scent, the Anti-Wrinkle Essence is easy to absorb and leaves pores and pores and skin instantly smoother. Don’t get me flawed, it doesn’t suggest you presumably can substitute the essence with additional toner, on account of the weather and concentrations of every merchandise are completely completely different. The essence moreover accommodates squalane, macadamia oil, ceramide and shea butter so its formulation is additional moisturizing than the toner.
The emulsion is, as soon as extra, barely beigey and carries the similar scent as a result of the toner. Like with the toner and essence, a bit of bit goes a good way when using the Anti-Wrinkle Emulsion, so I anticipate this 160ml bottle to remaining me by winter. The emulsion accommodates additional seed oils than the essence, along with these from chamomile, geranium, lavender, bergamot, lemon peel, cymbopogon martini and rosemary leaf. At this stage of the routine, my pores and pores and skin already feels very plump and clear. I reckon these with common to oily pores and pores and skin form can skip the cream, significantly inside the morning.
Bon Yeon Jin Anti-Wrinkle Cream
I typically dab solely the slightest amount of face cream on my cheeks, forehead, chin and nostril tip, after which unfold evenly. This cream by danahan is totally clear and non-greasy. It’s as good and buttery as some nourishing eye lotions I’ve tried. Since I’d already utilized a variety of nourishing merchandise sooner than using this cream, I solely patted a small amount of the Anti-Wrinkle Cream onto my pores and pores and skin. After making use of all 4 merchandise from the Bon Yeon Jin line in quick succession, my pores and pores and skin appeared greasy inside the first minute, nevertheless that look rapidly dissipated.
I’m glad I found danahan’s Bon Yeon Jin line merely as chilly local weather arrives. This stuff have saved my dry pores and pores and skin from flaking and restored suppleness to my pores and pores and skin. I haven’t tried the eye cream from the range however, nevertheless a four-step skincare routine with the toner, essence, emulsion and cream feels practically correct for me.
The toner and emulsion is likely to be purchased individually nevertheless the essence and cream are solely on the market in current models. Regardless that I typically favor to buy skincare merchandise individually, the models can help you attempt completely different merchandise from the gathering that you would be unexpectedly fall in love with. The mini-sized merchandise are moreover good for a staycation. Top-of-the-line half? The Bon Yeon Jin merchandise are very cheap nevertheless look pricey because of the opulently designed product packaging.
