TOP Korean Beauty Products are always on our radar, and we’re reviewing the popular Red Ginseng Skincare line.
Donginbi Red Ginseng Ultimate Oil is one of Korean Celebrities’ most beloved essence oils in the Korean market today. With Kim Hee-Sun as its model, Cheong Kwan Jang launched their Donginbi brand a few years ago by promoting the fact that their skincare line is created from 6-year old Korean ginseng.
There has been numerous research into the skincare benefits of Korean Red Ginseng over the past few years. “Ginseng is most often included as an anti-aging ingredient in facial moisturizers. Several medical studies have shown its effectiveness in fighting wrinkles due to ginseng’s ability to boost skin-firming collagen. The herb also acts as a whitener, giving the skin a brighter and more youthful appearance.” (Livestrong.com)
This is the Donginbi Red Ginseng Ultimate Oil that I use at home. Although a bit on the pricier side, I love the rich texture of this facial oil on my dry skin. It smells great, too, with just a hint of red ginseng, which provides a therapeutic feeling – almost like being at a spa. I use 2-3 drops of this oil on my skin every night.
