Just a while ago, my favourite bae Alene and I were so privileged to attend TheFaceShop’s Korean 10-step skincare regime to learn more about how the Koreans attain their flawless porcelain-like skin. We all know that the Koreans are the best people to look for when it comes to taking care of the skin, but I really wasn’t expecting to know that their skincare regime contain up to 10 over products each time they prep and maintain this skin (holy cow, that’s a lot!). I guess all these effort, money and time are very well-spent so let’s see what are Korean’s typical skincare regime.
To demonstrate how each TheFaceShop products can be used, we have our TFS model with us that evening at the workshop.

Comes in a pump bottle, the Myeonghan Miindo Heaven Grade Ginseng Whitening Emulsion is quite heavy actually. The frosted bottle could be the reason why.
A small pump gives the following amount. For my whole face, I use about 4 pumps and dot them across my face before using my fingertips to spread them across. You can tell that the emulsion spreads across very easily and gives a glossy film on the back of my hand. I would say this isn’t too thick or greasy, and it gets absorbed into my skin very quickly.
Myeonghan Miindo Whitening Emulsion contains brightening ingredients in white ginseng extract to help improve dull skin and brighten your skin tone. I’m glad to read that there’s no artificial coloring and synthetic preservatives, and they actually use traditional herbs grown in Korea!
There’s also a slight ginseng smell and to my surprise I like this subtle scent. This whitening emulsion is great on its own but if you would like to, it’s better to get its pals from the same range like the Myeonghan Miindo Heaven Grade Ginseng Moisture Cream!
