Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Cleansing Foam Review:
One of the luxury Asian beauty brands that have been on my radar for quite some time now is none other than the famous Sulwhasoo. There are a few products that I am interested to try, but before I splurge on the full size I decided to get some trial sizes first. And I started with the Snowise EX Cleansing Foam.
♥ With a pH of 5.0-6.0, the cleanser has a subtle acidity ideal for preserving the natural pH balance of the skin.
♥ The subtle acidity of the foam protects the skin’s naturally acidic pH balance, cleansing the skin gently while protecting its delicate balance and natural glow.
♥ Leaves the natural moisture in the skin intact.
♥ In addition to removing excess sebum, the foam also hydrates the skin, leaving it glowing even after cleansing.
♥ The bouncy and creamy formula turns into a finely-grained and dense foam, making for a gentle, enjoyable cleanse.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Cleansing Foam Review:
This trial size cleanser comes in a white tube that has the same shape as the full size product. While normally most trial size products does not come with a box, this one does. Sulwhasoo still maintains that luxury feeling in their trial packagings.
The cleanser has a white creamy gel-like consistency. Only a tiny bit of product is needed as it lathers up well. I would wet my hands, squeeze the cleanser onto my palm and rub my hands both together to lather it up (I don’t use a konjac sponge/ cleansing tools, but I would imagine this will work wonderfully when used with those). Then I apply it all over my face and cleanse thoroughly.
I use this as my first cleanser in the morning and also as second cleanser at night. The whole cleansing process feels so pleasant, especially with the amazing scent it has.
I have been on the hunt for a cleanser to be used in rotation with my other Holy Grail cleanser, and I’ve been quite unimpressed so far. Until I tried this Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Cleansing Foam!
It ticks all the right boxes; it is low pH, gentle, removes leftover makeup residue, does not leave my skin feeling tight and dry even when I did not apply any hydrating product immediately post-cleansing, and left my skin softer and brighter.
As with other Sulwhasoo products, the full size of this cleanser is quite pricey. However since a little goes a long way with this cleanser, one tube can last for quite some time. I have been using this trial size tube for over a month now (in rotation with my other cleanser) and there is still a lot of product left.
For now I would definitely repurchase the trial size, as I find it is much more convenient for me since I like to rotate cleansers and it is easier for me to take it along for travelling. Plus I also have a thing for cutesy sized products!
I feel this cleanser would work great with all skin types, as it is gentle, non-stripping and pleasant to use. If you feel like splurging on a cleanser, then I would definitelty recommend getting this. Or you can always get the trial size first, whichever tickles your skincare fancy.
