I first reviewed the original Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum in Female Daily website, you can read the article here. It’s among the very few first booster/first essence/serum that I’ve tried and love, along with SK-II First Treatment Essence and Menard Beauness.
The original one though an effective first essence, especially for those with acnaic and normal to oily skin, it’s not hydrating enough for my skin. It’s great for acnaic skin because it helps to bring your problem to surface and clear out skin. It also balances your skin nicely if you have oily skin.
However, this reformulated version of Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX has all the benefit of the original one. Still great in texture, seeps into the skin fine, but with the addition of being more hydrating! It’s almost on par with SK-II FTE in terms of hydration and a little below Menard Beauness. It’s still works great on unbalanced skin. Great to boost the performance of your skincare.
Other than how it feels hydrating, the texture and finish as well as other aspects of this booster that I love still remain the same. So the original review that I wrote for Female Daily still stands.
Here’s a short wrap up.
