About the product

What Is It:


From the very first step to the very last, your skin deserves the very best, and there’s no better start than Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Foam EX.
Sulwhasoo brings the same luxuriously formulated, skin nutritious, botanical-rich principals to their cleansing foam, the same high quality you’ve come to expect from their essences and creams.
Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Foam EX washes away pore clogging debris, dirt, and oil without stripping your skin protecting moisture barrier. With a pH of 6, you can be sure your skin will not suffer the harsh effects related to high pH cleansers. Throughout the day, your skin will better maintain a well hydrated state, protecting itself from bacteria and acne-causing triggers. Rich nourishment such as Chestnut, Cacao, and Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-Yuen Seed Extract leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed. The elegantly textured cleanser gently glides over the skin, reducing any unnecessary pulling or friction, leading to an overall gentler cleansing experience. This makes Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Foam EX an excellent choice for those dealing with redness and irritation stemming from sensitive skin or outside stressors.
Sulwhasoo has formulated this cleansing foam with non-ionic cleansing compounds, allowing for a rich cushiony lather that will transform the act of washing your face from a mundane chore — an absolute treat!


Our insight:


While cleansing foams are largely washed away, using a well formulated high end cleanser such as Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Foam EX can often times do more to help with redness and irritation than a more basic cleanser, making them well worth the investment!

Brand info:


This prestige beauty brand, focused on hanbang ingredients indigenous to Korea, is as highly respected in its native land as it is abroad. Proof? Locals say its Ginseng Cream is something you’d gift to a potential mother-in-law. In its earliest iteration, that ginseng cream was what launched Sulwhasoo over 50 years ago. While helping his mother’s camellia oil business, Sulwhasoo founder Suh Sung-whan came to appreciate the power of traditional Korean herbs. Working with Kyunghee University of Oriental Medicine to blend traditional Korean medicinal herbs and methods with science-backed research, Suh founded the company that would become Sulwhasoo in 1966. All of Sulwhasoo’s ingredients are meticulously cultivated in AmorePacific’s herb farm, from the saponin-rich ginseng to white lily to East Indian lotus. Its signature formula of jaumdan, which consists of five potent herbs, targets the body’s Yin energy to fight dryness, dark spots, and inflammation. In 2004, Sulwhasoo became a best seller in Hong Kong, and in 2010, the prestige skincare line made its North American debut at Bergdorf Goodman.

Another one of my favorite cleansers. It's very gentle and no frills, but it smells heavenly and feels luxurious on the skin.

You will definitely want to us it with an oil cleanser to get rid of make-up esp. stubborn eye make-up. What i like about it is that it feels really natural and gentle. My face feels clean/ fresh but it is slightly drying. I can't give it a 5 because i have a feeling there might... Read more
