THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam Pure Brightening Skincare Review

Combining brightening and anti-wrinkle benefits in a complete skincare range is indeed a smart move. I mean lets face it, those who uses anti-aging or anti-wrinkle products would definitely appreciate a multi-task product especially it provides radiance and brightness towards skin. THE FACE SHOP has a new skin care line, Yehwadam Pure Brightening targeting specifically those who are looking for anti-aging skincare but here's a twist, with an added brightening effect! 

TFS Yehwadam Pure Brightening is formulated with 7 brightening and unspoiled traditional herbs grown in Korean soil. These beneficial traditional herbs are processed using 'baek-ja' method which is why the formulation is called 'Chil-baek-seol-yun-dan Complex'. These natural ingredients are heated for a long period of time to remove toxins and for the purpose to get the maximum benefits from each ingredients. The 7 pristine traditional herbs are meant to help the skin elevates it's glow and radiance while reducing the appearance of dark spots and pigmentations. Skin that goes through aging will gain double benefits from this skincare range.

The 7 traditional herbs include :

♥ Cnidium Officinale 
Promotes blood circulation to restore energy and balance while improving skin's radiance.

♥ White Ginseng
White Ginseng is well-known for it's brightening property. It also helps in preventing melanin production.

♥ Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle)
Beneficial in detoxing purpose while improving skin tone.

♥ Paeonia Albiflora (Peony)
Stimulates blood circulation to improve blood flow, hence it improves skin tone. 

I tried 4 products from the Yehwadam Pure Brightening skincare range ; Toner, Serum, Emulsion and Cream. The packaging is similar to the Yehwadam Revitalizing line but the glass packaging is in white. The scent is quit similar to the Revitalizing line even though they have different ingredients.  All these 4 products contains the 7 traditional herbs and Niacinamide for brightening purpose and Adenosine for anti-wrinkle benefit.

The first step after cleansing is to use a toner or a refresher. This refreshing toner gently removes any excess makeup and gently brightens up skin complexion. I love how soft it feels on my skin. It creates a moisture layer on my face and leaves a healthy glow. I don't know how to describe it but it feels good on the skin. Do you know sometimes you have that 'sting-y feeling' and dryness after toner application? This toner does not do that at all. I guess the light and luminous texture helps the skin to feel 'extra' moisturized and illuminate. It is not as liquid-y as water, but it absorbs quickly into the skin.

The star product of the range, the Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum that brightens skin complexion by reducing the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation. As far as dark spots and pigmentation goes, I can't say much because I don't have any dark spots and pigmentations (yet). What stands out the most to me about this serum is the ability of this serum to penetrates into the skin quickly considering that it is highly concentrated. The texture of the serum is soft and silky, makes it non-sticky too which is absolutely perfect! It gives an 'instant' brightening effect and make my skin looks luminous and radiant. I can feel that my skin stepped up to a higher level of moisture because of my skin feels super soft and supple after application.  This serum contains lamellar which is a moisturizing ingredient that has similar structure as skin that helps to restore moisture into the skin. I love the instant brightening because it can make my 'dull-skin day' better!

The third step is to apply Yehwadam Pure Brightening Emulsion to improve skin tone, restore moisture and fight fine lines and wrinkles through the existence of anti-aging properties. The wonderful thing about this emulsion that it prevents moisture loss by creating a protective layer, mimicking skin's structure. The texture is soft and silky, but it feels slightly heavy on the skin (a heads up to those who doesn't like sticky products on the face). I know some people might think that this step can be skipped but trust me, once you add in the emulsion step, your skin will be so much better. As for me, this emulsion helps to retain moisture and that is really important because a well-hydrated skin can prevent any signs of aging.

The fourth step is to apply Yehwadam Pure Brightening Cream to seal the skin and creates a protective layer to even out rough skin. This cream has the heaviest texture of all of the products mentioned and I need to gently massage the cream into my skin to ensure that everything is fully absorbed. Instant brightening is achievable with this cream because I noticed my skin becomes radiant and brighter after this step. The sticky feeling does linger a little bit but it doesn't bother me that much though. I guess it has to be on the 'heavier' side because it needs to create the protective layer and at the same time it gives a soft and smooth surface for makeup application. This cream does not contained SPF, so please add on your sunblock before proceeding to your makeup routine. This cream is also great for night usage and I actually like using it as my 'sleeping mask'. My skin sure feels amazing when I wake up the next day!

THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam Pure Brightening range is suitable for anyone who are looking for anti-aging products with brightening benefits  that does not dry out their skin. I've come across a few brightening products that made my skin so dry and patchy which is obviously forfeit the purpose of having a glowing skin! I started using anti-aging products when I was 22 or 23 years old if I'm not mistaken. I really glad I did that! *hehehe* Anyway, if you want to watch how I use this skincare range, go to my Instagram to watch my video! :)
