First Impression: Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion #25 Deep Beige

When I had thought I'd given up on cushions - it's not the cushions' fault, I just never felt any of them had worked for me, - my father and his wife took a trip to Malaysia, she saw the Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion in No. 25 Deep beige at a department store, decided to splurge, and got one for either of us. Yay for vacations and splurging!

About the brand:
"Sulwhasoo. Time-tested holistic skin wellness regimen drawn from Korean Herbal Medicine.
The driving force behind Sulwhasoo's unwavering commitment to Korean Herbal Medicinal Skincare began with the company's founder, Suh Sung-whan. As a young boy living in Gaeseong, Korea, a city known for quality ginseng, he mastered the insight and know-how to find the best ingredients while helping his mother and her Camellia Oil business. Wholeheartedly believing in the healing powers of Korean Medicinal herbs, he dedicated his life to finding new and innovative ways to use these herbs in skincare." (source)

Like each and every Sulwhasoo product I have ever had the pleasure of holding and smelling, this cushion is in an absolutely gorgeous, heavy, elegant case, and the cream inside smells just slightly hanbang-y, which I love.


For some reason, I am having an easier time finding the right amount - as in "not too much" - of cream to apply, than I have found with other cushions. Also, the light patting of the sponge against my skin does seem to do the job; whereas, with other cushions, I often ended up using too much product and therefore achieving a very unflattering, cake-y finish, or just having a hard time applying an even layer.
Neither was an issue with this cushion.


Even though it is only a shade or two darker than your typical "darker" kind of cushions (as well as BB and CC creams, which are always too light for me,) and while I am admittedly pretty much half-blind when it comes to figuring out skin tones, and undertones, and overtones, and what-not, this cream seems to be a close-perfect match for me. As time goes by, and it sinks in (plus most likely somewhat oxidizes,) it is practically unnoticeable; it's that "my skin, only better" type of feeling.


It gives my skin a finish that is just a tad bit dewy; not dewy where I feel like a disco ball or think that all these Western people will assume my skin is oily (because they fail to realize that unltra-dewy doesn't equal oily,) but dewy where it looks just very, very healthy, and feels very, very soft and peaceful. Which is my main skincare goal.


I will have to try it a few more times and wear it for extended periods to be able to tell whether my pores start protesting because of the 'cones (unfortunately, they usually do; however, they had no issues with the Sulwhasoo Essential Firming Cream, so I am hoping that's a good omen.) Even if they do, that's just me, and I won't be able to fault this product.
This product is wonderful, and by far the best cushion I have ever tried.
