Introduction


  • Sulwhasoo Liquid Cleansing Foam

 

A cleansing foam leaving skin hydrated and looking radiant.

Formulated with clarifying Korean Medicinal Herbs, this cleansing foam removes skin impurities and leaves skin hydrated and looking radiant.

– Japanese Apricot hydrates while Dokudami soothes for soft, hydrated radiantly clean skin.

– Rich, luxurious, non-stripping lathers effectively remove pore-clogging impurities without irritating the skin.

 

 


  • History Of Whoo Foam Cleanser

 

Gentle foaming cleanser contains natural herbal ingredients to create a rich, fine-textured lather. This replenishing cleanser gently removes facial grime, impurities and make up residue. Its highly concentrated and super moisturizing formula keeps the skin moist and supple and helps prevent dryness.


[Gongjinhyang – A secret Royal court formula that presents heavenly skincare to empresses]


Containing “Gonjinbidan” and “Wild ginseng Cordyceps sinensis”. Gongjinhyang helps create a more attractive skin tone. Through the principle of yin-yang harmony to keep skin balanced and the principle of increasing water and diminishing fire to enhance moisture within the skin while soothing it effectively, it gives skin a new radiance and smoothness.

 


Packaging

  • Sulwhasoo Liquid Cleansing Foam

 

Both packaging are very distinctively different. Sulwhasoo comes in a bottle and pump form and contains 200ml of the cleanser. You would need about 2-3 pumps each time.

  • History Of Whoo Foam Cleanser

 

Whoo’s cleanser comes in a tube form and contains 180ml in comparison to Sulwhasoo. However, while the Sulwhasoo cleanser contains 20ml more, you would need about 2-3 pumps each time. With Whoo, you would only need about two pea size of product each time.

 


Texture

Sulwhasoo’s cleanser is transparent ( slight yellowish teint ) gel while Whoo’s foam cleanser is a yellow white paste which has a pearly color to it.

 


The whoo foam paste is rather thick in texture, while Sulwhasoo’s has a serum like texture to it. However, compared to the Elisha Coy BB Cleanser which they both have similarities in texture, Elisha Coy’s BB Cleanser is more liquidy and spreads more easily on the face while the Sulwhasoo’s foam cleanser is thicker.

 


Sulwhasoo’s lather ( i wouldn’t use the word foam because the foaming is very light  and not very noticeable ) is light on the skin while Whoo’s lather is thick and rich in texture.

 


Foaming Power

Whoo’s foaming power is definitely more superior than Sulwhasoo. Both do not actually ‘foam’ that much but both creates this thick white lather ( Whoo’s lather is thicker and more apparent as seen in the photos ). Sulwhasoo’s whitish lather does disappear after a while that is why it isn’t very noticeable in the 2nd photo, while Whoo’s lather remains dense and thick.

 

 


Cleansing Power

Whoo’s cleansing power is also superior to Sulwhasoo. The photo explains it all !

 

 


Post – Cleaning Feeling

 


Both cleansers give very different post-cleaning feel to the face.

 

 

Sulwhasoo gives a more moist  and normal feeling after cleaning but the Whoo cleanser gives a very SQUEAKY clean feeling after cleaning. In fact, we usually hate this squeaky clean feeling which comes with a ‘pulling’ and dry feeling on the face. However with the Whoo cleanser, even though it gives a VERY squeaky clean feeling, it doesn’t ‘pull’ the skin and the skin doesn’t feel dry. You can really feel that your skin is very clean.

 

 

However, we were rather divided when it came to this. Half of us did not like that squeaky feeling because probably we were used to cream based cleansers and the other half loved the squeaky clean , yet non-drying after-feel it gives.

 

 

It really depends on your preference for this one. Unlike the Hada Labo cleanser which also gave the same sort of feeling like the Whoo cleanser, it left the face dry and tight. However with Whoo, it doesn’t give the dry , tight and pulling feel on your skin.

 

 

It is the first time we came across a cleanser which gives such a squeaky clean feeling yet not drying, and you can even hear the squeak if you glide your hands along your face after cleaning. This probably explains why the cleansing power of Whoo is more superior to Sulwhasoo.

 

 

Apparently, the cleansers of LG ( Whoo, OHUI ) all gives the same super squeaky clean feeling.

Price / Value for money Red heart
  • Packaging

We chose Sulwhasoo over Whoo because pumps are more hygenic than tubes and also convenient. All you have to do is pump and you can get started.

 


  • Texture

We preferred Whoo’s texture because it was more rich compared to Sulwhasoo’s gel like texture which was light

 


  • Foaming Power

Whoo’s foaming power was more powerful and created more lather compared to Sulwhasoo

 


  • Cleansing Power

Cleansing power of Whoo was also superior and you can feel that it cleans much better by the super squeaky feeling it gives after

 


  • Post Cleaning Feel

This was a half-half situation but Sulwhasoo won by 1 vote! However, both cleansers do not leave the skin dry and tight.

 


  • Scent

We also chose Sulwhasoo’s scent because it was more natural and had a very strong herbal smell which everyone here loves. It smells like the Sulwhasoo First Aid Serum.

The Whoo cleanser has the typical scent of the Gongjinhyang basic line which can be very artificial and empowering. However, the scent is also very pleasant but can be a little too much at times.

 


  • Value For Money

Sulwhasoo won because it is slightly cheaper. Sulwhasoo costs around 26 – 36 USD for 200ml, while Whoo’s cleanser cost about 49 USD for 180ml !

 


This will be a general feel for our future Sulwhasoo – Whoo – Hannule – Sooryehan reviews, so leave some feedback of this review format , so we can change it on our next review !
