Hansaeng Cosmetics Rin Bi-gyeol Yun Cream

I was bemused when the Rin Bi-gyeol Yun Cream landed in my postbox. As you may or may not remember, I reviewed the Rin Bi-gyeol Soo Cream nearly a month ago. In a nutshell, they contain similar-ish ingredients but Soo leans more towards the moisturising side whereas Yun is for nourishment purposes.

And what's the difference between a moisturising and a nourishing cream? This page will help you!

Name: Hansaeng Cosmetics 한생화장품 Rin Bi-gyeol Yun Cream 린 비결 윤 크림
Price: ₩ 44,000 for 50 g
Made in: Korea

Rin Bi-gyeol Yun Cream is a moisturiser composed of fermented ginseng and an oriental medicine flower complex (called 단화연 in Korean) that is made up from 10 valuable extracts including Phellinus Linteus and Mulberry to deliver highly enriched nutrients to the skin, leaving it supple and smooth.

It is a non-sticky cream that absorbs fairly quickly into the skin. Sensorial wise, it is rather like the Soo cream aside from the balmier texture. The colour also distincts them; Soo is a pale blue whereas Yun comes in a delightful caramel shade.

My skin has been parched and crappy and riddled with holes - no thanks to an excess of pimple creams – a bit like the desert really. The Rin Bi-gyeol Yun Cream has been stepping up to the plate in inserting plumpness to my face. A dollop in the morning and night, and my skin looks dewier and a lot more alive than it would do otherwise.

It costs ₩ 44,000 for 50 g at A fair price really, considering how nourishing it is!
