Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex UV Protection Cream [review]

Hello guys! Today I'm gonna share a review about the most expensive sunscreen that I've ever tried.
As you know, Sulwhasoo is a well-known high-end cosmetic brand from Korea. Most of their products are not friendly enough for my money pocket, but luckily I have a chance to try Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex UV Protection Cream by winning a giveaway last year :)

I guess you won't gonna believe how much retail price of this sunscreen is..
Okay, without further ado, let's jump into the review :D

Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex UV Protection Cream SPF47/PA+++
설화수 상백크림 SPF47/PA+++

This Snowise UV Protection Cream has simple yet elegant packaging. It comes with twist cap at the bottom of the tube. Its box and tube are dominated with pearly silver color. Quite travel friendly and not bulky at all :)

A dual-functioning (brigthening, UV protection) cream formulated with traditional Korean herbs to promote skin clarification while simultaneously preventing future damage from harmful UV rays.
  • Effectively helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays, the main cause of skin aging and pigmentation, and helps prevent future skin damage. White Ginseng Saponin removes pigmentation and infection from harmful UV rays and nourishes into clarifying skin.

I found some ginseng ingredients, various of root extract, honey and little bit alcohol. Glad to know this product doesn't contains mineral oil, and paraben.

Color, Scent & Texture
This sunscreen has milky white colored-cream. It smells quite pleasant, and I believe it's a ginseng scent :D It has thick texture but still easy to be spread and blended onto skin.

I have been using this sunscreen for weeks and gladly it doesn't breaks out my skin ^.^ I often use this at the morning and it doesn't cause blackheads nor trigger sebum on my skin. Though they claim this sunscreen isn't sticky, to be honest I think IT IS quite sticky and I have to add layer of face powder to make my skin shine-free and less sticky. So far I'm quite loving this sunscreen but I don't think I will repurchase it again, it's out of my budget :p LOL
Anyway, sorry I don't notice if it has brightened my skin or not ._.

+ Has dual functions: UV Protection & brightening
+ No mineral oil and paraben
