[REVIEW] Tosowoong Essence Cushion Vitalizing Perfect Cover SPF 50+ PA+++

Tosowoong Essence Cushion Vitalizing Perfect Cover SPF 50+ PA+++ Review:

Dry, cold wind from the North once again tormented my sensitive dehydrated skin. This sentence sounds like I am a mountain climber or some adventurous creature. Oh God, no! I am talking this sitting at my dressing table trying to apply my foundation and cursing my skin barrier. There must be better way than this – said to myself looking at my dry patches and red papules in the mirror. As I was just looking into Asian skin care, I started my quest for something that would cover my blemishes, always flushed cheeks and of course with some ‘If I do say myself so’ not-drying-my-rosacean-face-like-rain-thirsty-land effect. Of course, let us make this game more interesting: also with non-sensitizing ingredients that would not by any chance aggravate my already angry skin.

After long hours surfing and eliminating one product after another after reading ingredients list, my eye caught something very, very interesting: ESSENCE CUSHION SPF 50+/PA+++, Vitalizing Perfect Cover by Tosowoong. Hm, cover with essence, sounds interesting!


Tosowoong is brand that is highly recommended for troubled skins. They have reputation (at least for me) to deliver results on skin as promised.

Tosowoong claims that this product provides “Whitening, Anti-wrinkle and Sunblock in SPF50+ PA+++ as containing more than 55% of moisturizing essence, water Glow Essence Perfect Cover Cushion is a brand new lightweight cushion foundation with high coverage.”

Tosowoong Essence Cushion Vitalizing Perfect Cover SPF 50+ PA+++ Review:

After reading the claims, I felt that this is exactly what I was looking for. So I ordered it particularly excited knowing that little or none Asian beauty products that I have had chosen before let me down.

Ten days later, there it was, in very simple, white package, ready to be tested.

I immediately opened it, stood there just smelling that strong rose fragrance, applied it to my face, and then stood in front of the mirror genuinely surprised. My face was almost perfect looking!

Satin finish but with skin beneath that is no longer dry, tormented and covered, but well nourished, plump and almost dewy. Rose scent dissipated quickly. I went out and immediately got compliments for my skin! Amazing! That was love on the first application.

So let’s get back to Tosowoong claims and promises. “Perfect coverage with no mess.” I was sold on this one. “Skin care + makeup at once” got me and the last claim was the closer: “Moisturizing essence, sunscreen and liquid foundation at once!” Moreover, really its swirly design really is mix of these two.

Therefore, what is inside to make it so perfect to my skin?

I was bit worried about 55% essence based on rosa damascena flower water and my skin reaction to it, but there was none whatsoever.

Sunscreen actives are both physical and chemical in combination to provide broad-spectrum sun protection and this is something that bothered me a bit.

My rosacea is no friend to chemical sunscreens, but once again no reaction at all. Having skin this reactive and hypersensitive has one good side – I do not have to wait for reaction to my cosmetics to happen, as it is immediate and explosively dramatic.

I really don’t know why I chose to buy this particular cushion as ingredient list raised so many red flags for me as for example fragrance. Not a hint on the last place, but there it was, right in the middle of the list. Big no no for me.

Everything (at least in western skin care) with the hint of added scent or essential oil aromas was absolutely sure thing for volcanoes on my face to arise and erupt. But not this time.

However, there are also good guys: niacinamide, adenosine, ceramides, cocoon extract, aloe vera juice and again not a good news for everyone: shea butter. Again, no bad reactions.

Totally blew my mind. I chose instinctively, and scored. Phew! Thank God!

I use it very sparingly just lightly patting it on my skin with puff provided, and then for more detailed touch I use soft, precise brush, pat it on the cushion and then use it on spots and pore zones that need more coverage and work around it.

My skin type as mentioned above is aging, hypersensitive, dehydrated (or no more) rosacea skin. That is very, very spoiled brat and attention seeker. Very picky, very temperamental. A true diva.  

After 5 weeks of everyday use, it is safe to say that this is definitely repurchase for me. A true game changer. Nice little thing that can handle needy skin.
