My experience with Soon jung skincare kit

Soon Jung Ph 5.5 Relief Toner

The toner is in thin transparent liquid form and can be used by simply slathering it on face & pat it in. The toner provides good amount of hydration and doesn’t irritate the skin and eyes. I didn’t feel it as soothing & calming like other k-beauty toners. It leaves a sticky feel on skin which feels uncomfortable on my oily skin. Overall I will give this toner a pass and won’t like to purchase its full size bottle.

Soon Jung 10 Free Moist Emulsion

The consistency of the emulsion is runny like somewhere between a serum and a moisturizer. It feels very light on skin and absorbs immediately into skin giving enough hydration and moisture to irritated & damaged skin. My oily skin didn’t feel any greasiness with it. This emulsion worked as a moisturizer for my oily skin & I loved using it with actives like aha,bha, retinol as well. I didn’t face any breakouts with it & would love to purchase its full size.

Soon Jung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream

The cream is formulated to work upon outer skin layer thus to protect the skin from water loss. Its a thick white color cream which I felt quite heavy on my oily skin. It made me sweat every time I used it even as a standalone moisturizer. The cream is really effective in terms of sealing all the products applied before it & prevent trans epidermal water loss (TEWL). I think this cream would be more suitable for dry & mature dull skin which needs to maintain or intense repair of skin barrier. I would skip buying its full version as I didn’t find it suitable for acne prone oily skin.

Soon Jung Cica Balm

The balm is of thick gel consistency and feels quite smooth when applied on the skin surface. I used this balm a lot on my dry peeling & inflamed spots when I was on retinoid. It absorbs into the skin quite well without leaving a greasy feel. I have used it all over my inflamed red face 1-2 times & loved how it calmed my skin overnight. I would definitely consider buying its full size in winters when my oily skin needs some extra nourishment. For dry skin people this is really amazing but not suitable to be applied on active acne.

My Hit and Miss from soon jung kit

Soon jung mini kit pros cons
  • Ph 5.5 Relief Toner is a miss for me because I didn’t find it that soothing on my acne prone oily skin.
  • Free Moist Emulsion is a hit for me because it provides both hydration & moisture to skin making it feel calm & soft instantly.
  • Barrier Intensive Cream is a miss as I found it very heavy and greasy on my skin.
  • Cica Balm is a hit because it relaxes the inflamed & red areas really well while providing moisture & softness to dry areas of skin.

Conclusion

All products in soon jung skincare kit focus on the same concern with almost similar ingredients but different performances. As a consumer, you don’t need all products at the same time and only 1-2 products from the range can address your stressed skin issues. I would say moist emulsion and cica balm are good picks from the kit which is suitable for all skin types. The products are not fungal acne safe and thus I won’t recommend these products to extreme active acne skin.
