Sulwhasoo Snowise EX UV Protection Cream

Snowise EX UV Protection Cream
40mL, $58 USD

By now, your face is probably covered with 3-4 layers of skincare
The UV protection cream is the next step...
Wouldn't you wonder if your skin can absorb all this skincare and if your pores can breath??

UV is an essential part of skincare, it's just as important as your toner, serum and moisturizer !!
The UV Protection Cream provides brightening and UV blocking.
It promotes skin's natural circulation, prevents future damage from harmful UV rays and gives a matte appearance. 

I don't really care if it can absorb into my skin, as long as it can act as a barrier against UV rays, I am fine
After applying UV protection, next comes make-up for the face
By then, there's already 5-6 layers (ie. primer, foundation/BB cream, loose powder/ pressed powder)
it feels thick... 

I didn't buy the full size for this one, I have a bunch of samples and have been using it for quite awhile now

White creamy texture, quite moisturizing

It's not considered oily compared to other UV protector
However, it's not refreshing either
I would say this one is for normal to dry skin or dry skin

When I apply it on my face, I feel a little bit of heat... kind of stimulate my blood circulation, but the heat disappears quickly. 
Ingredients such as Rhubarb extract brightens and clarifies the skin. Pomegranate calms the skin and promotes skin's natural circulation.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Eye Treatment

Snowise EX Whitening Eye Treatment
15mL, $58

The price is ok, I've seen eye creams that range from $75 - $125.. like Lancome and Shiseido
I think they call this an eye treatment because there's a metal tip applicator that helps to massage and relieve tired eyes
I've noticed many brands having this applicator now, if not metal, then it's plastic.. their purpose serves the same, to help massage your eye area
Dior has a whitening eye cream too but it's ~$75
So for whitening eye cream, this one is quite reasonable

The cream is white and creamy in texture
It's quite thick, so don't apply too much

I had been using sample packets, because 1) I sell them, 2) they are more economical and 3) more clean.
Each packet is 1-1.5mL and lasts a few days
Just in case I need to switch to another eye cream for a few days, I am not pressured to come back to this one soon
I had been using this quite regularly during the day time and some nights
I do feel that my eye area became more brightened in terms of color tone
It won't remove your dark eye circles immediately though... it will reduce it significantly

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Cream

Snowise EX Whitening Cream

50mL, $105 USD

Ingredients include Hedyotis extract which helps brighten the complexion by protecting the skin against free radical damage, Mulberry tree root extract which has a cooling effect on the skin.

Many people think we only use whitening products during the day. This is totally wrong!! 
At night time, between 12-2am, our skin undergoes an intense repairing process. 
Night cream contains higher levels on active ingredients to help boost skin repair and target your concerns. 
These ingredients help prevent melanin from forming and whiten your skin.

The creams I have tried so far are all thick and greasy, so I try to stay away from creams as much as I can. 
Surprisingly, the Snowise Whitening Cream is pretty light in texture! Easy to spread, non-greasy, absorbs quite well. 
This is one of my favourite cream!! 
Although it's quite pricy....
I really hate heavy stuff... even for night time, my skin just can't absorb all the moisture from thick creams!

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Fluid

Snowise EX Whitening Fluid
125mL ($54 USD)

This is a whitening emulsion/lotion I like very much! 
it has a silky texture and kind of crystal like transparency. 
Even when I apply it on my skin, it feels so soft!! 
Ingredients consist of Korea medicinal herbs which aims to brighten, detoxify, clarify and even-out skin tone.    


The Snowise Whitening Fluid absorbs fast and can keep your skin moisturised for a long period of time. It absorbs quickly, leaving my skin smooth and soft. Mulberry extracts brighten dull skin. 

I also noticed my skin became a bit opague after using it for ~1 month. Rhubarb extracts prevent melanin pigment from forming. 

I am pretty happy with the results. 

morning:   Snowise EX Whitening Water -> Snowise EX Whitening Serum -> Snowise Whitening Fluid 
night:  Snowise EX Whitening Water -> Snowise EX Whitening Serum -> Snowise Whitening Cream

Massage the skincare into your skin for better results.

After applying, my skin feels moisturized, soft and smooth!!

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Serum

50mL, $163 USD

This is the most expensive product in the Snowise line...

The new packaging is way better than one from the past.. which was like 5mL x 6 bottles

This serum helps reduce and brighten pigmentation and protect skin from UV light and heat. The texture is thick but liquidy and absorbs quickly.  It has a strong herbal scent, but not irritating. 

Main ingredient and function:

- Rhubarb -- main whitening ingredient in the Snowise line, suppresses melanin from forming, brightens dull skin, improves metabolism 
- Morus Alba -- detoxifies
- White Ginseng polysaccharide extracts restores skin vitality
- Hedyotis Diffusa extracts stimulates skin's natural circulation, returning a clear and bright complexion

- Other ingredients -- concentrated Korea herbs that whitens your skin, stimulates blood circulation, drain away toxic impurities, keep your skin balanced

For whitening products, you usually see results in ~6 months time. I had only been using this whitening serum for ~2 months and my acne marks visibly lightened. For best results, wrap your face with your palm immediately after applying it, so the heat from your hand can help the serum absorb faster.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Water

Snowise EX Whitening Water

125mL ($50 USD)

I wasn't going to review anymore whitening products, but since the sun is still quite strong even in North America, I feel I should review this set which has strong whitening effects... 

During the Summer, we do have to use whitening products to "prevent" ourselves from getting darker. After the Summer, when the sun is not as heavy, it's time that we use better whitening products to replenish and get whiter.

The Sulwhasoo Snowise line contains many kinds of Korea medicinal herbs, including Kozo, fermented soybean natto, rhubarb, marsh parsely, concentrated pomegranate, licorice root and white mulberry. These ingredients are intended to help brighten, clarify, detoxify and even-out skin tone. 
The Sulwhasoo products all have a herbal scent. 
I have used the whole whitening line for ~9 months. 

This line is suitable for the summer as well. 
The Snowise EX Whitening Water is a clear and gentle gel type toner. 
Since the texture is thick, it can provide deep hydration to dry skin. 
This whitening line uses nanotechnology, so particles can penetrate and be absorbed quickly. 
My skin sucks its water moisture like a sponge! 

After using First Care Serum, pour some Snowise EX Whitening Water on your hand (palm) and apply or massage on your face. 

I haven't applied the toner on my hand yet, you can see these dry fine lines on my skin.  

After application, the fine lines are not visible anymore!!  

I will give this toner a 4.5 out of 5 and will definitely get it again!!

Biotherm Aquasource Nuit Deep Hydrating Jelly

50mL, $42 USD, $50 CAD

The light blue jelly is used as a night moisturizer 
It spreads easily and melts into your skin !!
It smells sweet (like a fruit), hey it can give you a sweet dream =)
You just need 1-2 pumps and it's enough to cover the entire face

Our skin goes through a repairing cycle at night time
This process uses a lot of water and nutrients
I do not find that just using this product alone, is enough for the repairing cycle
I usually use it as a base at night then follow with another thicker moisturizer on top
You could just try using this one and see how you feel.. everyone is different

However, I recommend you to use it during winter time and at NIGHT only
I tried using this product during the summer time and it's a little too much..
It feels a little greasy...

This product does contain alcohol...
So.. you might want to consider before trying it
Those with sensitive skin should definitely try the tester or get a sample before buying
