I love discovering new beauty brands, and my most recent brand discovering is Erborian which is a Korean beauty brand which specialises in high quality ingredients which are derived from Korean herbs to create innovative and exclusive formulas. I really like the Eborian brand message that they don’t make big marketing promises or spectacular claims, “rather, it offers proven effectiveness and astounding results”. I’ve been testing out four products from the Erborian Yuza Skincare Collection which is full of vitamins thanks to the actives extracted from the peel of superfruit Yuza.
The Erborian Yuza Skincare Collection combines intense hydration with protection and nourishment for dry areas. The new Yuza Collection contains microcapsules with antioxidant properties and Vitamin C to help fight the first visible signs of aging caused by harsh environmental factors.
First up in the Erborian Yuza Skincare Collection are the Erborian Yuza Sorbet Featherweight Emulsion £39 and Erborian Yuza Sorbet Night £44. The Yuza Sorbet Featherweight Emulsion is said to act like a second skin, making it feel protected against environmental stresses.
It has a thick, almost mousse-like consistency which contains tiny yellow balls which are microcapsules with antioxidant properties which disperse when being massaged into the skin although they do feel a little strange at first.
The Yuza Sorbet Night works all night long, to help hydrate and soothe the feelings of tightness associated with dry skin, and it feels almost zingy on the skin with a citrus scent. It has more of a thicker consistency which feels incredibly nourishing and soothing on the skin and helps to really hydrate my super dry skin.
Even though the Sorbet Night is a lot more intensive, it absorbs very quickly and doesn’t leave any residue on the skin whatsoever and is one of the nicest night creams I’ve ever tried. Both the day and night cream come in a weighty, matte glass jar and I love that they’re different colours so you can easily tell them apart. The packaging is very luxurious as is the textures of both the creams and I like that they’re offering my skin immediate moisture and comfort whilst also protecting against environmental stresses at the same time.
The other two products from the range that I have are the Erborian Yuza Sorbet Eye £28 and the Erborian Doudoune for Lips £15. The Erborian Yuza Sorbet Eye helps to awake the eye area whilst helping to hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes. The Sorbet Eye has a gel serum formula which contains microcapsules similar to the day cream which contain Vitamin E for its antioxidant properties, and helps to protect the skin from external aggression.
The packaging of the Sorbet Eye is really lovely, with a clear pump bottle which dispenses the perfect amount of gel for both of your eyes and I like that you can see how much product you have left. The eye gel massages into the skin very easily, and starts to slightly thicken as you work it into the skin and leaves my eyes feeling so soothed and fresh, and I’ve really been enjoying using it day and night.
The Erborian Doudoune for Lips is a lightweight protective balm for the lips which helps to combat dryness and soothe damaged lips and dry skin. The balm has a slightly jelly consistency in the jar, and it feels quite thick and a little slimey when you first apply it to the lips but after a couple of minutes, it feels more like a typical lipbalm and loses its initial sliminess. The balm feels really comforting on the lips, and it imparts a pretty shine whilst banishing any dryness.
I’d love to know if you’ve ever tried anything from the Erborian Yuza Skincare Collection? If you have, do you have any product recommendations?
