Sulwhasoo Holiday Travel Set (Gentle Cleansing Oil, First Care Activating Serum, and Essential Firming Cream)

Hello everybody,

from my recent encounter with Sulwhasoo, they handed me a travel set consist of cleansing oil, first care activating serum, and a firming moisturizer.


Packed nicely, the series is enough for a couple of weeks usage. I'm starting with the Gentle Cleansing Oil (all details given provided by:

A cleansing oil that gently removes makeup residue and impurities from the skin.  White Birch promotes the skin's natural circulation and turnover cycle to restore healthy glow to the skin.

Before wetting your hands, pump Cleansing Oil twice onto your palm and massage your forehead, nose, and cheeks in a circular motion, melting away all makeup residue and impurities. When makeup residues and impurities are melted down, rinse off with lukewarm water.

The clear oil doesn't feel light but not really on the heavy zone, it removes all impurities like makeup and daily debris. When used as a makeup remover a double cleanser is needed (like a foaming facial wash), but as I uses it as a daily cleanser to remover daily sebum and debris, I don't feel the needs to double cleanse. The gentle cleansing oil is wonderful and smells full of Korean herbs. Pleasing the senses from the nose to the skin. The after feeling is a soft clean skin.


Continuing the routine with first care activating serum. The one that said to be their best seller.

Formulated to replenish essential moisture and nutrients and to boost the effect of every subsequent treatment. Milk-vetch, licorice, and dwarf lilyturf work synergistically to optimize the Korean herbal ingredients in the complete collection while deeply hydrating.

Apply morning and evening over cleansed face, spreading evenly with fingertips. Gently wrap the face with both hands for better absorption.

Why is it a best seller? It helps the skin to be fully ready accepting the next thing applied on the skin. Almost every brand are struggling on how to prepare the skin so they can absorbed the nutrients and nourishment from the precious ingredients prepared. Most of them are known as toner, lotion, softener, etc. So far, the First Care Activating Serum wins. The brownish clear almost gel-like liquid is amazing.

The feeling is comfortable on the skin, the product absorbed on the skin leaving no trails behind, another Korean herbs scent is felt, something feel medicinal here.


And the best part of using the first care activating serum is the product that I'm using next can be absorbed better, in this case, it's essential firming cream.

Restore elasticity and tone with this firming cream, blended with potent Korean medicinal herbs to instantly firm and tone slackened skin while stimulating collagen for long-term lift. Adlay millet detoxify and promotes elasticity while contouring. Pomegranate, green tea, and gingko fight free radicals to maintain youthful radiance.

The cream feels and looks so rich, white and beautiful. Again, the medicinal scent from Korean herbs, but for me, somehow they all smells good and comforting, even if ones dislike the scents, it will go away almost immediately.

Now, the problem with most firming cream is how rich and clingy they are. Thanks to the first care activating serum the cream glides easily on the skin and penetrates better, leaving no traces behind, no greasy, discomfort or like most creams do, creamy feeling that attracting many dirt and create a slightly oily feeling.

The combination between first care activating serum and the firming cream is wonderful and I can see why the serum is loved so much.


I do noticed the big differences when used together or alone, they are best used together and with the rest of the series.


Thank you Sulwhasoo Indonesia.
