Review: Laneige White Plus Renew Tone Up Corrector

I’ve been feeling so hot and bothered recently. I mean, there’s been excessive bodily fluids coming from places where the sun don’t shine.

Ok, gutter minds, that came out all wrong.

You obviously know I was talking about the friggin’ weather, the insufferable humidity and pit sweat stains. I mean, it’s not like there’s an influx of topless brief-clad hunky men swarming around me (I do wish that though hurhurhur).

I feel like everything’s melting off these days, so I am actually piling on extra sunblock (I also have to make sure that my OPT treatment doesn’t go to waste – review to come soon!)

Besides my normal sunblock, SPF-inclusive Sulwhasoo Renodigm cream and the SPF-inclusive Too Cool For School Lunchbox BB, I’ve added one more step, which is this. (yes, I know, it’s a little excessive heh).

And now, cos I know a request will probably come up for this – here’s how it looks when you apply makeup over it

I say…

I like the packaging cos it’s got rounded corners and fits comfortably in my hand – I know I’m not gonna be grasping it all day and all night, but still, me just likey.

  • The fragrance is wonderful, kinda like a powdery floral scent.
  • The Tone Up Corrector is really lightweight and has a slight white-pinkish tinge to it.
  • It spreads easily and glides over the skin without pulling.
  • There’s a slight glow to your skin once it sets in (which doesn’t take very long).
  • As you can see from the swatches above, it really does give your skin an extra tone up, especially when you apply your makeup over it.
  • You won’t feel like there’s anything on the skin – perhaps a slight increase in hydration levels (it certainly doesn’t feel drying).
  • There’s also a slight cooling sensation.
  • The after-feel is one that isn’t velvety smooth; in fact there’s a 1% almost-sticky sensation  but you can feel that it’s the type of stickiness will help your makeup to stay longer, like a pseudo magnetic feel. It’s similar to the Sulwhasoo Essential Luminature Finisher, which makes your skin supple.

 

Overall, I’d say that this is a multi-functional skincare product that protects your skin, acts as a makeup primer and a makeup wear time enhancer.

  1. I’ve always felt so intrigued by Laneige and I have yet to find a sunscreen alternative that I like for my face. This seems like it strikes off lots of steps from my routine (ie cream, sunscreen, primer). So I’ll definitely try to get my hands on this some how! Thanks~!!

  2. Hello, I am interested in trying out Sulwhasoo products. Since you love their stuff products so much, could you suggest a starting point for me? I am in my 20s with dry skin. Thanks in advance!

    • Hey Ruby, I’d suggest you start with their star product, the First Care Activating Serum. It’s a skincare booster so it’ll be the very first item you use on freshly-cleansed skin.

      You can also try their Hydro-Aid Serum / Cream since you mentioned that you have dry skin, cos this is their moisturising line. It’s relatively lightweight but helps to maintain moisture in your skin. I recommended this combo to my gf who is a cabin crew (and hence always exposed to dry in-cabin air), and she loves it 🙂
