Consistency/ Texture / Absorbability:
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream has a juicy gel-cream sort of texture but it’s surprisingly very rich and nourishing. So, for every usage I only needed a very small amount, because of this rich texture, it takes an extra 1 min to fully sink into the skin.
Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream contains some amazing ingredients. I am so glad to see that it’s 100% Essential oil-free and fragrance-free and denat. Alcohol-free. Ingredient list referred from BOJ official website.
Its key ingredients include:
- Rice Bran water (29%) – it has a skin brightening property.
- Ginseng root water (5%) – softens skin and adds glow.
- Niacinamide (2%) – Brightens and calms skin. Higher conc. of Niacinamide can be a bit drying on already dry skin, but 2% is well tolerated by all skin types. The reason many Korean brands use 2% strength.
- Squalane (2%) – softens skin and adds glow.
- Has 3 types of hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin and also contains Ceramide 3 to maintain the skin barrier.
How to use:
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream can be used daily, day and night at the last step of skincare routine, and it goes well with all the active based serums.
Skin Type suitability:
Oily Skin: Not a great option… is a bit rich for you people…but if you still wanna try it out, get it only during the peak dry winter season.
Combination skin: use during wintertime.
Normal & Dry Skin: All season, except monsoon.
- It gives an amazing dewy glow on dull lifeless dry skin.
