About the product

What Is It:


An elegant formula that pampers the skin while providing exceptional hydration and skin brightening. Formulated with the line’s signature cold-pressed camellia flower extract to fight free radical damage and provide superior nourishment to skin, this face cream also features the powerful lightening agent α-bisabolol. This active compound has been scientifically shown to have a significant lightening effect on skin discoloration, and with consistent use, dark spots may fade within four weeks. In the meantime, this rich face cream imparts a satin-like glow to skin, diffusing light and evening out skin tone. It absorbs quickly with no greasy afterfeel, and it’s great for dry, sensitive, or mature skin. Non-comedogenic, non-irritating, and fragrance-free.

After using an entire jar of SanDaWha Camellia Water Cream, I thought I was committed to it for good. I've had this jar of Liposome cream in my stash since summer '18, and I brought it out for winter to see how it competed with my favorite Shangpree Bitgoa Hue Rich Cream (that one's $85). While they're entirely different, I haven't reached for the Shangpree since opening this jar one month ago! That's saying a lot 'cuz I adore it. SanDaWha is rich but not cloying; fragrant without lingering; and decadent but quick to dry down. I am wildly surprised... Read more

As the weather in SoCal transitioned somewhat into "cooler" weather, my skin was feeling a little more dry. So I incorporated this cream into my routine, and after about 3 weeks, I can safely say that this is a very solid, nourishing moisturizer that works well for both day and nighttime routines. (For reference, my skin is very dry.) I've been using it along with SanDaWha's Liposome Skin Softener (one of my HGs for toners!), Liposome Revitalizing Lotion, AND the brand's eye cream (full on SDW routine right here!) and my skin has been very happy and moisturized!
