I know that many of you love hanbang cosmetics, meaning beauty products using ingredients derived from traditional Korean medicine. Typical ingredients are ginseng, licorice, ginger,…and many more! I was more than happy to discover that this month’s products I received from BNTnews contained a hanbang product, too, the Hansaeng Cosmetics Rin Bi-Gyeol Yun Emulsion!
Hansaeng Cosmetics claims to be a true oriental medicine based cosmetics company with a know-how reaching back to 50 years experience. Their Rin Bi-Gyeol Yun skincare range is a highly functional oriental cosmetics based on fermentation of ginseng- 6 year fermentated ginseng and 15 other oriental medicine extracts to be more precise! The skincare routine consists of a toner (skin), essence, emulsion, and a cream.
I really like oriental medicine in my skincare and I love fermented ingredients, too. You can guess how happy this product made me. The Hansaeng Cosmetics Rin Bi-Gyeol Yun Emulsion I received has anti-wrinkle and whitening properties and is supposed to help you with dry and dull skin and vitalise and make your skin feel supple.
I will start with the description of the beautiful cardboard box. I love the flower motif of the box and after staring at the packaging for some dreamy seconds I opened it up and discovered the yellow bottle of the emulsion. A sturdy bottle with a golden cap. It feels quite heavy and not easily to break. A good grab is needed to remove the golden cap and take a look at the pump dispenser underneath.
The cardboard box contains the description of the product and the ingredients in English and Korean. You can check the ingredients via COSDNA >>here<< and you will find some potential acne triggers and irritant but most of the ingredients are green flagged. All in all there are a bunch of oriental medicine ingredients included. the blend out of 10 of these ingredients is called botaniceutical plus and it contains: Licorice, Polygonum multiflorum root, Phellinus linteus, Mulberry root, Sophora angustifolia root, Black cohosh, Black sesame, Angelica gigas root, Paeonia lactiflora, Scutellaria baicalensis root. This mixture of herbs and plant extracts is supposed to balance the oil-moisture balance of the skin,provide anti-aging and keep the skin hydrated and resilant. Apart from these ingredients you will also find: Niacinamide, fermented ginseng (Lactobacillus), Sodium Hyaluronate, and Macadamia Seed Oil. These aso have moisturizing and brightening properties.
The pump dispenses a small amount of the emulsion. I need two pumps for my face. Sometimes three. The texture is quite creamy for an emulsion and not too runny. The emulsion has a perfumed scent, which I like because it smells like soap. It is easy to spread and absorbs fast without being tacky. It feels hydrating but also rich and makes the skin feel pump. It also works nice with other products on top, be it sunscreen, cream or makeup. All in all, I’m totally happy!
I’m happy I was introduced to the brand Hansaeng Cosmetics and that I could try a product from their hanbang skincare. I really like the ingredients and the combination of oriental medicine and fermentation. Unfortunately, like many hanbang products, these ingredients come at a cost. The Hansaeng Cosmetics Rin Bi-Gyeol Yun Emulsion contains 140 ml and retails for 32000 Won (32 US $). You can find more information in English >>here<<.
