To keep the intro short, this post will be sharing two samples I received as GWP, the Ja Saeng Essence and Jin Hae Yoon Sun Wrinkle from Korea The History of Whoo.

Bichup Ja Saeng Essence (KRW160000/45ml)

 .

Bichup Ja Saeng Essence is a signature serum of The History of Whoo, it has similar product position as Advanced Night Repair serum under Estee Lauder, targeting wrinkle improvement and enhancing skin self-healing ability. It contains three court secret compounds (Gongjinbidan, Kyungokbidan, Chungsimbidan) to enable skin self-strengthening against environmental damage.

This is pricey, that would be great to get a sample first to see if it is what we like. The essence has gel and hydrating texture, feeling smooth and slick while spreading on skin, then conveyed to gel-sheen finish and a little bit sticky to touch. From its ingredient list, it contains various humectants and oriental plant extracts, though I could not vouch the effectiveness of those plant extracts in beauty product but it should be helpful to treat dryness because of those humectants. I was rather disappointed of its artificial fragrance since I was expecting natural scent or a non-fragranced essence. The pleasant floral scent was similar to the aroma of Whoo Gongjinhyang series but not identical. Overall it was a nice hydrating essence that able to iron out the fine line instantly (although temporary) but would still need moisturizer afterwards for complete moisturizing. My sensitive skin also experienced no irritation or breakout from testing it for a week.

I did this test on whim on the other day, trying to have some ideas between serum and lotion but no useful conclusion is drawn. I post this test anyway just to give you all a small idea how moisturizing of this essence compared to the other three first-step products. Yes, it is most moisturizing among them and also the thickest.

Jin Hae Yoon Sun Wrinkle SPF46/PA++ (KRW55000/45ml)

 .

Gongjinhyang Jin Hae Yoon Sun Wrinkle is marketed as an anti-aging sun cream. As Gongjinhyang series is created for women from late 20s to 30s, that is no surprise to see an anti-wrinkle sun cream in the series. It said to improve wrinkles resulting from dryness aside the UV-blocking.

 .

.

This has pleasant floral scent too, something different from the scent of Gongjinhyang series. The finish is either radiant or shinny depending on the skin condition (dry/oily) but it leaves no unnatural white residue. I do think Korean sunscreens (eg: Rojukiss Protox day cream and Laneige Sensitive Mild UV protector) commonly have cream texture while Japanese sunscreen majority is appearing more lightweight, this probably because the climate in Korea is drier compared to Japan.

 .

.

For drier skin, this sun cream was feeling non-heavy and easily dried on skin in less humid day (humidity <50%). However, it was slightly rich for oilier skin and skin was tacky until the skin started excreting sebum, or applying any makeup foundation/powder can ease the tacky touch too. On the other hand, the compact powder caked on skin due to the tacky base. Referring to above test pictures, I tested this both to my face and hand, it seemed to be okay as makeup base when tested on hand, so I think the cakey finish probably due to my uneven facial skin texture (larger pores at least). Meanwhile, this is also water-proof, I definitely need proper makeup removal at the end of the day. I tried it four times only, no skin irritation had been noticed. In short I still love Japanese milky sunscreen, not to mention I do not believe in “anti-wrinkle” sunscreen.
