Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Serum — I love the way it sounds. Of course, I had to check this serum out. I have high hopes since I truly have a connection to Sulwhasoo and have always loved their products before. I think it’s best to get started with the Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Serum review

Simple but Elegant

The Sulwhasoo Snowise Serum’s bottle reminds me of a nice winter morning. Simple and clean yet feels expensive but this is a given when it comes to Sulwhasoo, their designs always give an elegant, luxurious mood. The bottle feels amazing, like always, it’s quite heavy with strong glass.

The applicator for this serum is a pump, which is always nice; it’s one of my favorite applicator types, making the application so much easier and less messy. 

Refreshing and Herbal

The serum inside has a nice white, pearly color, which is fitting, considering the design of the bottle. The consistency of this gel-like serum is quite nice actually. It feels very hydrating and is easily absorbed. It gives more of a watery feeling, which is refreshing by the way.

The scent of the Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Serum is pleasantly spicy and herbal, with a hint of lemon and pine. Sulwhasoo really never disappoints when it comes to the scent of their products, especially the serums. 

Luxurious At-Home Spa Day

Now it’s time to apply the Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Serum. I like how lightweight this serum feels, it glides smoothly and spreads evenly across the skin. It’s like my own spa day, I’m always relaxed applying Sulwhasoo skincare products on my face.

Here comes the moment of truth. My skin feels moisturized, plus it just melts into the skin—a very pleasant feeling. I definitely feel very relaxed while applying this to my face. I can say my skin feels a lot firmer and there is no sticky residue or heavy feeling on my face.

For some extra pampering, I like to apply the Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Eye Serum. This eye serum is perfect for brightening up the eye area and reducing dark circles. It’s the perfect addition to my at-home skin-brightening routine.

Plumping and Protective

The Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Serum adds plumpness and brightness to the skin over time. Although it’s not a product that instantly works, the effects take time to show up. I would say the biggest difference you will see is after nearly a month.

I noticed the serum works for spot control very well and rejuvenates my skin in an interesting way. My skin feels more protected against irritants and the skin barrier has been restored. My skin has been feeling a lot healthier and more durable so it doesn’t get irritated as easily.

Small Brightening Difference

The Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Serum is a great serum but I can’t confidently say it will make a major difference in your skin if you have dark spots. The serum helps brighten dull skin for a more awake and brighter look. It makes my skin glow in a pearly way if that makes sense.

I recommend this serum for anyone who is looking to brighten up the look and get dewy skin, without hoping for a major difference in discoloration, etc. I would say it’s very similar to the Sulwhasoo First Care Serum, which I also did a review on. I say this because I was expecting more brightening with the Snowise Serum.
