I’ve al­ways felt like I’ve missed out on a few ‘How To Be A Girl’ lessons, es­pe­cially where skin­care is con­cerned. My skin­care regime is ‘as and when’, as in ‘when I re­mem­ber to do it’. Ba­sic fa­cial cleanser aside, I usu­ally leave the rest to my monthly visit to the beau­ti­cian. My col­league’s hor­ri­fied ex­pres­sion when she found out, how­ever, told me that it was time for a change. “Take care of your face while you’re still young or you’ll re­gret it!”

With that sage ad­vice ring­ing in my ears, the op­por­tu­nity to try out the Ye­hwadam Re­vi­tal­is­ing Serum by The Face Shop came at a per­fect time. One of five prod­ucts in the Korean beauty brand’s newly-launched Ye­hwadam Re­vi­tal­is­ing range, the serum’s sell­ing point is that it con­tains ex­tracts from herbs, plants and flow­ers that Kore­ans tra­di­tion­ally rely on to main­tain their youth­ful looks.

Ev­ery day for a month – or as close to ev­ery day as I could man­age – I mas­saged a coin-sized dol­lop of serum into my face. I dis­like ap­ply­ing sun­screen be­cause of the un­com­fort­ably sticky residue it leaves on my skin and I was wor­ried that the serum would have a sim­i­lar ef­fect.

Hap­pily, the serum ab­sorbs eas­ily, leav­ing my face feel­ing mois­turised with­out dis­com­fort all day. I’ve al­ways had is­sues with dry, peel­ing skin around my T-zone (nose and fore­head), so this was a wel­come change for me. No more un­sightly patches when I use foun­da­tion! As a bonus, the serum is also lightly per­fumed with a pleas­ing flo­ral scent.

I wanted an ex­pert opin­ion so I waited to visit my beau­ti­cian to see if she would no­tice the change. In­stead of her cluck­ing dis­ap­prov­ingly over my dry skin as usual, I was grat­i­fied to hear, “Your skin seems to be much bet­ter this month!” even be­fore I told her that I was us­ing the serum.

A month isn’t long enough to tell whether my com­plex­ion has the po­ten­tial to achieve K-pop star lev­els of flaw­less­ness, but the Ye­hwadam Re­vi­tal­is­ing Serum def­i­nitely made a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to my skin and I’m happy to rec­om­mend it to any­one look­ing for a skin­care so­lu­tion. All skin re­acts dif­fer­ently, though, so make sure to do a patch test first.
