SOS Balancing Gel Cream
Free Gift

If you have oily or acne-prone skin or sensitive, irritated skin, get excited — Shangpree has the product for you.

A luxurious gel cream that cools as it sinks into your skin, this SOS Balancing Gel Cream is packed with beneficial botanicals and plant extracts that provide relief to irritated skin, stimulating its natural renewal process and strengthening the skin barrier. Licorice root extract is a particularly beneficial ingredient for sensitive or irritated skin as it has soothing properties — and it’s great for help fighting acne, too. Pine leaf extract has potent antioxidative properties that are anti-aging, helping to protect skin against free radical damage caused by pollution and UV rays.

Shangpree’s SOS Balancing Gel Cream doesn’t just stop there, though — it is also packed with adenosine (helps prevent wrinkles), arbutin (brightens and helps prevent scarring), centella asiatica extract (soothes), and spearmint extract (clarifies and helps fight acne). With a base scent of licorice and hints of pine needles and bright florals, the gel cream is pleasant and soothing to apply, the subtle scent fading away as the gel cream absorbs quickly into your skin, leaving a smooth, soft finish and hydrated, restored skin.

Peach and Lily Take
Shangpree is one of of our most popular brands because it comes from Korea’s top-rated spa and has a stellar reputation. It’s always exciting for us when they release a new product, given how intensive and thorough their R&D process is, and we’re doubly excited for this SOS Balancing Gel Cream because it’s the first product from Shangpree to target oily and acne-prone skin. Peach tip: if you have normal or combination skin, we recommend this gel cream for those dry winter days when your skin wants to soak in something intensely hydrating. If you have dry skin, during the dry, winter months, we’d recommend supplementing this with an additional moisturizer or a hydrating oil.
The Must Know
1. Licorice root extract is a great ingredient for sensitive skin because it helps soothe and fight redness, but it also contains an active ingredient called “glabridin” that has potent anti-inflammatory properties. Glabridin helps brighten skin and fight hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the production of melanin, which causes skin to darken.

2. Red pine leaf extract is a superstar ingredient with antioxidative, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It helps clear skin of impurities and fights free radicals, boosting skin health from within.
