Whal Myung Skin Elixir

Typically, K-Beauty routines involve a lengthy 10-step process, but this Korean elixir is changing the game by combining three products into one—toner, serum, and oil. It simplifies our regimen, leaving behind a glowing, hydrated complexion after just a couple spritzes with the handy nozzle. The watery-yet-milky consistency feels refreshing and moisturizing at the same time thanks to five skin-healing herbs. The formula is inspired by a medicinal digestive drink produced by the Dong Wha Pharmaceutical Company in 1897 for the royal family, which contained the same ingredients. Decades later, it still delivers. This revamped emulsion provides the most essential benefits (nourishment, moisture, and radiance) of that remedy to your skin for a healthier complexion.

Love this stuff

Got the sample and had to buy the full size. The fill size has a misting nozzle which is great compared to the sample I was shaking into my hand. It smells good and makes my skin feel soft and moisturized with being heavy or greasy on my face.

This goes on the subscription list!

Most likely the best sample I've ever gotten! I love this elixir - it's a bit watery - so at first I was very skeptical about it's moisturizing abilities. I was wrong. The sample does not come with the sprayer, so it took a bit to get the dose right, but about 5 shakes in the palm of your hand is good. Apply to freshly cleaned skin and just wait for the glow! Has a nice, clean scent, very subtle. Very botanical, which I like, but not overpowering. Non greasy or tacky. My skin feels amazing and looks refreshed, brighter, and more toned.

I'm sold!

I love using this before my serums, the scent is very light and luxurious, and I feel like it makes my skin softer and brighter! Definitely one of the best samples I’ve ever received.

my holy grail
SampledPurchased

I truly love this stuff! I tried it when I got a sample in my box ,and bought it shortly after. I've been using it now for a minute and can really feel a difference in the texture of my skin. I am a smoker unfortunately, and this stuff truly saves my skin. Now I'm not saying this stops the effects of smoking on your skin BUT I AM saying it feels so much better. I've just purchased my second bottle and am just in love with this potion..and I have a TON of lotions and potions. I literally use it 3 times a day. After every wash and before my normal skincare routine..and in the middle of the day when I need a little complexion boost. This is my desert. it's just a huge treat for your face!!

Can't get product out of sample bottle :(

Wish I could try mine! I have tried literally everything to get the product to come out of the sample bottle. My next step is the jaws of life. Would be nice to get a new sample so I try it, especially with all of these rave reviews.

Don’t realize what you have til it’s gone ...

When I first used my sample of this I thought, “oh, this is nice, but not necessary.” I still used it daily, however, and when it ran out I formed a much different opinion. I went about 6 weeks without it and definitely noticed a much less clear, much less glowy complexion without it. I am a fan of a modified k-beauty routine and find this product indispensable. I use it morning and night, as well as for post airplane pick me ups, and enjoy skin that doesn’t react to the weather or leave me with pesky hormonal acne anymore. I wear no foundation, just a bit of primer and a matte tinted sunscreen, and have never had better skin. I’ll never let myself run out of this again!

Total GOAT and one of my regimen "must haves"
Purchased

First tried this in the sample size after purchasing the K-beauty curated kit, and immediately purchased the full size bottle before I had even finished the sample. This stuff is magic. After one application, my skin was smoother, softer, plumper, more hydrated, glowy, and just all around healthier looking than it had ever been...not to mention how quickly it cleared up some unsightly spots on my chin from picking after a breakout. After 4 months of continued use, all of those same things remain true, in addition to any redness that I once had in areas of post breakouts being gone, along with having an overall much more even toned skin. Tip: It says to shake well, which I highly recommend doing so as the milky, cloudy part
settles down at the bottom of the bottle...I don't know what kind voodoo magic this milky, cloudy part consists of, but I do know that my skin did not look nearly as hydrated or glowy during the 5 or 6 days I accidentally onetime went without shaking it, first.

This stuff is amazing! If it wasn't so expensive I would bathe in this stuff! Its cleared up my skin so fast and helped with discoloration as well. I didn't even have to use a moisturizer anymore. This stuff is worth every penny.

I really do feel like this stuff has made my skin look much more radiant. I use it twice a day under moisturizer and after several days I don’t even feel the need to pile on my makeup anymore. Adding this to my skincare regimen has definitely kept my face and neck hydrated all day. I’m definitely planning on purchasing this.
