Proven on my skin: Artichoke Power Essence

Has everyone felt that moment, when you found the one? Recently, I’ve experienced the below:

  • It was an instantaneous connection.
  • The moment I stopped thinking ‘I’ and was always thinking ‘we’ ever since we met.
  • I’m feeling I cannot live with this one.

We go through so many skincare products, looking for that perfect one, eager to start seeing real results. And don’t get me wrong, I have so much affection for my skincare products at Glow Recipe or on my vanity, but with Yuripibu’s Artichoke Power Essence, it was just extra special.

Okay guys…so I've been waiting until this day so I could tell the world that I found THE ONE. I've tried hundreds of serums and essences (and loved many of them) but this artichoke power essence is perfection, at least for my skin 😉 It has the cleanest and most beautiful ingredients I've ever seen in an essence, the texture is bouncy and comforting, and it's proven to have the most effective anti-aging effects for my combination to dry skin. I started getting compliments on my skin from day 3 of using this remarkable product. What can I say, I found my match! See link in bio ✨ To share the love I have for our new Artichoke Power Essence from Yuripibu, I couldn't resist doing a GIVEAWAY. To enter, like this photo, tag a friend who is looking for an amazing skincare product, and guess the next type of veggie that will be the star ingredient for our upcoming launch in the comment below. For US only. You and your friend's artichoke essences are on ME! Can't wait to share the love!!! #veggiesontheblock #sarahglowtips

This is why I’m so excited to announce the launch of one of the greatest product curations we’ve had recently. Yuripibu’s Artichoke Power Essence, has shown how my skin can respect me back, by using the perfect match for it.

Product curation is the most fun, rewarding and at the same time, the most research-heavy part of my job. A few months back, we found Yuri Pibu through various sources and I can’t describe how thrilled I was. We first identified it through Powder Room, which is one of the biggest beauty blogs in Korea where Artichoke Power Essence stood out due to rave reviews by Korean beauty fanatics and bloggers. This was more than a great sign. We then asked around and a chemist from one of the renowned R&D’s of Korea said,

“Yuripibu’s formulas are a golden standard.
We are still trying to figure out how they make such blends of botanical ingredients without
using synthetic preservatives, and maintain those textures.

It’s almost a miracle.”  

After a few more validations, we went to meet the founder of Yuripibu, who was by no surprise a very inspiring entrepreneur and a skincare guru, and here we are!

Here are a few reasons why I love Artichoke Power Essence so much, and why I think everyone should try it!

  1. The Ingredient List

    Yuripibu is a brand that I can proudly say competes with Whamisa in terms of absolutely clean and beautiful ingredients, but with its unique focus on star ingredient stories, ie. artichoke. Many of you are fans of Whamisa for its state of the art ingredient lists. Check out Artichoke Power Essence’s list:

    Artichoke Leaf Extract, Witch Hazel Water, Glycerin, Coco-caprylate, Silica, Eclipta Prostra Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil, Zanthoxlylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Lichen Extract, Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Beuthero Root Extract, Cathamus Tinctorius (Safflower Seed) Oil, Rose Flower Oil, Lavender Oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Ceramide 3, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phytosphingosine, Yeast Polysaccharides, Cholesterol, Lecithin, Squalene, Glucoyl Ceramide, Keratin Amino Acids, Shea Butter, Tocopherol, Adenosine, Xanthan Gum, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sclerotium Gum

    Whoa. When I first saw this list, my heart was literally beating. The best part is that artichoke leaf extract takes up 60% of the entire formulation. If you have questions about specific ingredients, please email us at love [at] glowrecipe [dot] com. Happy to explain!

  2. The Magic Star Ingredient : Artichoke

    Did you know that Artichoke is actually an incredibly effective ingredient to provide dramatic firming for the skin? Hallelujah to those that are looking for a powerful anti-aging product like me! It minimizes enlarged pores from sagging skin and helps to build collagen while activating moisture retention. The rich supply of antioxidants and peptides in artichokes improves skin texture and nourishes the cells, diminishing fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes for a smooth, youthful appearance.

  3. Bouncy, Comforting Texture

    There are specific words in Korean that describe the textures of skincare products which also mimic the benefit on the skin. In this case, ‘zzon zzon’ (쫀쫀) is a pretty accurate description for this type of texture – bouncy, elastic while not sticky and lightweight. See our #ButSkinFirst video clip of this beautiful texture:

  4.  The Results

    Korean skin care products are about the experience and having fun while applying, but the best part is that there is no compromise on results. Let’s cut to the chase. I never got so many compliments after switching up my skincare game. This miraculous bottle gives just the right amount of glow with a smooth skin canvas. Day 3 of usage, I was completely sold, and it only got better.

So who’s ready to ‘artichoke’ your sagging pores away with me? 😀
