  • OHUI White Extreme Cleansing Foam



Unlike the other two cleansers, the OHUI one comes with a screw-cap. Contains 160ml.




  • IOPE Whitegen Cleansing Foam



This foam cleanser comes in a cap instead of a screw-cap. Contains 160ml.




  • HERA White Program Cleansing Foam




Contains 200ml.




Texture & Foaming

  • OHUI White Extreme Cleansing Foam



Contains green capsules that burst and breaks up easily. The OHUI Cleanser foams the easiest out of the 3 cleansers and foams very well too.




  • IOPE Whitegen Cleansing Foam




This cleanser contains red capsules. Unlike the green OHUI Capsules, this one doesn’t break easily when rubbed. Infact it doesn’t break unless you continuously rub it. It can be used like an exfoliator and use it exfoliate areas where pores are more prominent. Foaming is also really good, and produces thick, rich, fine foam.



  • HERA White Program Cleansing Foam



IOPE and HERA’s cleanser both contains red papain enzyme capsules. The difference is that IOPE’s capsule doesn’t break easily, but HERA’s capsule degrades easily after being rubbed. Hera’s cleanser also provides the richest foam out of the three cleansers. It does feel very similar to IOPE’s Whitegen cleanser – but I’m not surprised considering that both brands are being produced under Amore Pacific.



Here’s a comparison of the three cleansers :

  • OHUI White Extreme Cleansing Foam







  • HERA White Program Cleansing Foam 









  • IOPE Whitegen Cleansing Foam




I was rather surprised with IOPE’s cleansing power. It basically wiped off the entire permanent marker! So far, no cleansers i’ve tested has managed to clean the permenant marker up to this extent !

To be fair, if i were to pick one of the three, i wouldn’t know how to pick because these 3 cleansers are just excellent ! I really, really like all of the 3 cleansers – there are all very similar : they all have capsules, they leave a squeaky clean feeling without stripping off the oils on your skin and leaving it dry and tight, and they all smell great.




If you like rich and thick foam, give Hera a try. If you like the very squeaky clean feeling and want something that cleans well and has some grains to help scrub your pores, try the IOPE cleanser. If you like something that foams well and feels less squeaky-clean, try the OHUI.




You’d only understand what i mean by ‘squeaky clean’ if you’ve used any of History Of Whoo or Amore cleansers. They’re not the bad type of ‘squeaky clean’ where your face feels dry, tight afterwards. I know that dermatologists have preached that if a cleanser gives a ‘squeaky clean’ feeling – it means that the cleanser isn’t good because it strips off all the skin’s natural oils. But this is not the case with LG and Amore cleansers – it gives a squeaky clean feeling but your skin feels comfortable, moist, and super clean after that!




All the 3 cleansers give that ‘squeaky clean’ feeling, with IOPE giving the most ‘squeaky clean’ feeling, and OHUI the least. IOPE is also the only one in which the capsules doesn’t break easily when rubbed, so it can be used as an exfoliating scrub to scrub your pores.




But if i had to pick the winner, it would be :






Why? Simply because it has the best value for money! Since all three cleansers are extremely similar, price and content would be the first priority. Hera wins here for being the cheapest ( 30,000 wons for 200 ml ).



But why did i pick OHUI over IOPE since IOPE is the cheaper option ? Because i love OHUI’s foam. It’s more fluffy and fine, and the skin feels more comfortable after cleansing. My house mates are all crazy over the OHUI cleansers compared to the other two.. so it’s finishing much faster than the Hera or IOPE cleanser.
