[MUSIC] Hi everyone. It's Angelique, and I wanted to show you my new first step in my skin care routine. This is Sulwhasoo's First Care Activating Serum. Now a dermatologist once told me to think of my skin like a sponge. If it's dry, it's not going to absorb much. But if it's wet, it's going to absorb a lot more. So before I put on any moisturizers, or serums, or any expensive creams, I put this on. Now, the consistency is really light-weight. It's almost like water. So it absorbs, literally, in seconds. And it leaves my skin plump, and completely primed for all of the products I'm going to apply after. I am obsessed. [MUSIC]
