Sometime last month, I was testing out some foundations and BB creams on my face and asked my mom to help me see which one was better. Being the typical Asian mom, her answer was “Woah. Eeew. Your face is so bumpy and uneven with so many spots! You’d better do something about it, like a facial or skincare products. So gross.”
So helpful, mom.
I muttered something about “did you think all the Sulwhasoo products on my table are just for display purposes” and stomped off to my room in a huff that would have rivalled an angsty 14-year-old going through puberty.
Since then, I’ve embarked on a major skin-resurfacing regime, and this is one of the products that do work.
Sulwhasoo Evenfair Smoothing Foundation – KRW60,000
One pump dispenses enough for the whole face
A glowy, dewy finish with good coverage that doesn’t settle into the fine lines of my skin
Comparing Sulwhasoo with my current favourite foundation, Laneige Water Supreme Foundation. Here you can see that Laneige is clearly more fluid in texture while Sulwhasoo is more creamy.
Spreading it out – here you can see the difference in consistency again
After blending out – I admit it’s really hard to see a difference (which means both are really awesome hurhurhur). If I had to pinpoint several specific differences, it would be that Sulwhasoo has more coverage and glow. My veins are more visible under the Laneige Water Supreme Foundation.
How I look after a full day’s work – wonderful coverage that didn’t drop off during the day
A close-up of the Sulwhasoo Evenfair Smoothing Foundation – a wonderful rosy glow, dewy finish, good coverage and not much caking.
Clearly this is vunderfullllll.
- It gives really awesome coverage, and all you need is 1 pump. At the very most, 2 pumps.
- It covers pimples, acne scars, and dark eye circles.
- It gives a rosy glow and a dewy finish.
- It has awesome oil control – I blotted about 75% less than I usually do.
- The level of coverage doesn’t wane throughout the day.
- It smoothens out my skin’s surface (especially those annoying parts with whiteheads and blackheads).
- It isn’t too drying and has an appropriate amount of moisture in it without being too thick.
Updated: It DOES come with SPF25. But, I’m still using Sulwhasoo Renodigm Dual Care Cream with SPF30 and my other random suncreams to keep the harmful rays out. Plus, this one keeps my mom off my case, so I’m definitely keeping this one.
It’s surprisingly cheap for a Sulwhasoo item – KRW60,000 is SGD65.77 based on today’s rate. I say go get it – it’s totally value for money. Plus, even though the exterior box packaging isn’t eye-catching, it comes in such a pretty gold bottle.
