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.

So luxurious and creamy with an addictive hanbang scent! It perks me up whenever I use it. Ideal for evenings after removing make-up.

This is used as my 2nd step cleanser. I have been using this for almost 3 weeks now and I really like it. It smells clean and its gentle on my skin - my skin feels clean & soft. I have t-zone oily skin, so all I need is about a dot on my forehead, dot on my nose and then on my chin. I add a tad bit of water and work it in my t-zone area first for 30 seconds, then i spread it onto cheeks for another 30 secs, bcuz my cheeks are dryer. A little... Read more

I can't live without it. My favorite cleanser of all. It's very gentle, but effective, and leaves my skin super soft

One of my favorite cleansers! I love the herbal pine scent and the foam is to die for!

hchillin

Is this product the same as the snowise ex cleansing foam? Is this a reformulation because of different name?

rosiedosie

It's a reformulation. I used to love the EX foam, as it was very moisturizing and gentle, but the newer version dries my skin out (even in the little info pack that comes with it says that it has a higher pH than the older formula, so that's probably why).
