You know how guys absolutely refuse to read instructions when setting up that new DVD player or assembling that new IKEA shelf? (Someone explain to me why?)
Anyway, the same goes for me when it comes to beauty products. What I love about Korean products is its simplicity in usage.
For those of you who can’t understand the Korean instructions, simply go by consistency. The lighter the consistency, the earlier it goes onto your face. It’s a bit like how you eat your meals – start with the light appetisers and then finish up with the richest and creamiest cakes. (I so need to stop my bad habit of shoveling everything in)
Since my previous entry was about the Sulwhasoo First Care Serum, I decided it would only be logical to go in sequence.
By right, you should follow on with the Emulsion and then the Revitalizing Serum. But by left, since I ran out of money and my bro finished all my Revitalising Serum, I’ve had to open the gem of my collection.
This has got to be one of the most #%@?! expensive skincare purchases I’ve ever made.
Sulwhasoo Snowise Whitening Serum, 50ml – ₩200,000 (SGD224)

Against my skin – you can barely see it.
Application and Effects
Toner – First Care Serum – Snowise Whitening Serum 자정미백에센스 pronounced Ja Jeong Mee Baek E-sen-seu
The serum is just slightlyyyyyy (eensy weensy bitsy) sticky, but nothing to fuss about. It glides on well, takes a few pats to settle into your face and takes a couple of minutes before you can follow up with the Emulsion.
I’ve been using it for about 1-2 months and I daresay it was money well spent. On the bright side (literally), I’ve moved up the bb cream shade ladder. On the darker side, it’s really pricey to upkeep on my limited salary. Ah, the woes of being a middle-class Singaporean. Even beauty has to be rationed accordingly. I use this Snowise Serum maybe 2-3x a week. In the meantime, I upkeep my whitening regime with this other really awesome gel-mask from Missha (which I promise to blog about soon!)
