It just dawned on me that I had written a review of the su:m37 Time Energy Skin Resetting Softening serum, but not the emulsion. SO, here it goes!
The Su:m37 Time Energy Skin Resetting Softening Emulsion is in one word, fanfuckingtastic. But it’s su:m37, so really, what did we expect? I haven’t used a product that I haven’t liked from them. It’s become my go-to night time emulsion, although those with dry skin can most definitely use it during the day. I prefer the water-full emulsion during the day because it’s super light.
The emulsion comes packaged in a sturdy, glass bottle and contains 130mL of product. It has a pump top (YAY!) and just looks really chic and pretty. Sadly, because it’s glass, it isn’t travel friendly, but there’s nothing to stop you from decanting a bit into a travel sized container.
What is it supposed to do? Again, the whole Time Energy line is designed for repairing damaged skin and balancing oily skin. It’s been working wonders for my after acne skin, and I actually feel confident enough to not wear makeup all the time. Like all su:m37 products, this emulsion is free from artificial ingredients, dyes, and perfumes. It’s just naturally fermented goodness.
The product itself has a thin, slightly milky consistency and feels like absolute heaven on the skin. The “softening” part of this emulsion is the best thing about this emulsion. As your apply it, you can instantly feel your skin get softer. It takes a lot of effort to not just sit in front of the mirror and rub my face forever. Despite it being quite a light emulsion, it does a wonderful job of hydrating the skin without being sticky, oily, or greasy. It sinks into the skin almost immediately, and it’s also great to use during the day because it doesn’t leave your face shiny. It has a slight, orange-y scent to me, but it isn’t anything overpowering.
I apply the emulsion right after my serum (I actually use the serum from this line day and night). I apply two pumps to the palms of my hands and gently press it into my skin, gently massaging it in. Depending on how I feel, I’ll apply a cream after this step, or the Sulwhasoo overnight mask. I find that usually I don’t *need* to apply a cream afterwards, I just like the feeling of being extra hydrated at night. When I wake up, my skin is soft and smooth to the touch. If you feel like your skin is dull and sad and is in need of a little reboot, this would be a great emulsion to try. It really does “reset” your skin. I’m dying to try the toner from this line as well!
I’m about a little over halfway finished with the bottle and I definitely plan on repurchasing. It’s easily one of my favorite emulsions (along with the water-full one and the one from Innisfree). Su:m37 knocks it out of the park again!
I bought my bottle from w2beauty for about $46.00, which is cheaper than the serum. I’ve been using is rather consistently since May, so one bottle does last quite a bit of time, given that you don’t use like 6 pumps at a time. It’s also available on Ebay for $49.99.
