Review: Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Spot Serum

I usually have a weird habit of not opening my latest purchases immediately, but instead, storing them in my stash and taking them out every (other) weekend to lovingly caress and stroke before putting it back into storage. Repeat process about 3-5x, and then in a couple of months, I’ll finally open and use it. I can’t be the only one who does that right, right, right?

However, with this Sulwhasoo serum that recently received this from the special preview just a couple of weeks back., it was “let it rippppp (the packaging), baybeh!!” I What can I say – I’m just such a sucker for Sulwhasoo.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Spot Serum (1)Me likey the cap-cum-dropper delivery system – just twist it, and the knob will pop up. Close the cap tightly, and it’ll automatically go down.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Spot Serum (5)What are this product’s special points? It contains White Ginseng, and removes the root causes of dark spot formation (meaning you stop them dark little melanin buggers right at their roots and prevent them from sprouting), contains the spread of existing dark spots and also regenerates skin cells from deep within.

I say…

To dispel popular belief – no, this isn’t only for targeted spot treatment. Yes, this is for dark spots, but it can also be used for the full face.

  • Now, the correct way to use it is to apply it onto the dark spots and massage it into those portions. Next, slowly move your fingers in a gentle circular massaging motion outwards to the rest of your face.
  • It comes in a relatively heavy bottle (but not so much that it flexes any of my non-existent biceps).
  • I love the packaging, cos the cap holds a dropper dispenser that also has a twist-cap safe-lock.
  • Twist the cap to open the bottle, and the knob pops up so that you can pick up the serum. Vice versa, close the cap and the knob recedes downwards.
  • One pump is enough for half of my face, so go do the math. Me, I sometimes slather it all over my face because I failed maths spectacularly. That, and also cos I’m vain. hehe.
  • It has the same herbal scent as most Sulwhasoo Snowise products, and I love its aromatherapeutic effects.
  • The product is a somewhat milky liquid that’s similar to an emulsion.
  • It’s has somewhat of a cooling effect and is really quickly absorbed , leaving no residue or afterfeel.
  • I use it after my Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Serum to complement my whitening routine.
  • Since I don’t have any dark spots, I can’t judge the efficacy of its spot treatment powers, but when used alone, I can see visible skin brightening effects the very next day, similar to the Snowise EX Whitening Serum.
  • Although whitening products sometimes dry your skin out, I’m proud to report that this Spot Serum doesn’t have any skin-drying effects at all.

What can I say? I’m sold again 😀 I sometimes use this as an alternative to the Whitening Serum so that I can prolong my little fat bottles of skin goodness. For more information, visit the Sulwhasoo website.

  5. I love your blog so much :). Your review is so detailed and helpful ^^
    Can you answers me? 🙂
    I am 18 now and i am using Caudalie Foam, Badger Rose Balm, Indian Clay mask, Honey mask and sunblock for my teenage. I thought i enough and my skin always feels ok. My skin is quite fair, i am a Vietnamese ^^, but it is super sentitive and quite dry. And now i want to change my routine skincare to a Professional Line and i choose Sulwhasoo. Can you tell me can i use it now and what products i can use. Thanks a lot ^^

    • Hello! I think perhaps you can also try using Laneige cos it’s very hydrating – I love their new Water Sleeping Mask cos it makes my skin so bouncy and more hydrated. One item I highly recommend is Sulwhasoo’s First Care Serum as a starter serum. Oh, and Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence is great as well 🙂 If you’re looking to buy all from Sulwhasoo, perhaps you can try asking their beauty advisors at the counters where you can also test out the textures for yourself too 🙂
