Review: The Face Shop YEHWADAM (蘂花譚) Revitalizing Anti-Aging Skincare

I always have resistance towards anti-aging skincare as it can be too strong for young skin and I have experienced massive breakouts because of that. Now when The Face Shop introduces the new YEHWADAM (蘂花譚) Revitalizing Anti-Aging Skincare, I hesitated but still give it a try and....I'm loving it! ❤ 

How can anti-aging products be so gentle and mild to the skin?! Plus, that soft Korean herbal and floral scent is just irresistible. Well, YEHWADAM did it, and I'm totally sold. Under this line, they have toner, serum, emulsion (for day use), cream (for night use), eye cream and an additional star product: the special Pearl Capsule Cream.

YEHWADAM literally means the story of herbs, plants and flowers behind the beauty secrets of Korean women. The ingredients? It combines natural ingredients from the most pristine areas in Korea such as:

   ❤ Korean Ginseng (skin revitalization),
   ❤ Safflower (improve skin tone and complexion) and
   ❤ Goji Berry (control aging for radiance and glow)

Look, the luxurious packaging itself is like a gift of love on its own, so pretty and heart-melting!

All in all, YEHWADAM delivers the essence of Korean traditional beauty regimen and has  one feature in common – Anti-aging effects – where the secret to longevity and younger looking skin lies. 

You don’t have to feel "old" for using this anti-aging line. It is specially formulated for skin aged between 20 to 30, as the first step towards preventing aging. Due to its lightweight texture, it can be used every day and night without worries. 


Now let's unveil the secret of beauty together...
Step 1: Toner
Step 2: Serum
Step 3: Emulsion (for day use)
Step 4: Eye Cream
Step 5: Cream (for night use)
Yehwadam Revitalizing Toner (160ml) RM 130.90 

Function: ★★★★☆
This anti-wrinkle toner revitalizes skin to its natural skin radiance as it gives a balance of acidity level to the skin.

What I like: ★★★★☆
It is ultra-moisturizing, refreshing and easily absorbed into the skin.
My dry skin looks plump after using it.


Texture: ★★★
Clear, translucent watery liquid without any stickiness

Fragrance: ★★
Unlike other herbal lines that have strong herbal smell, YEHWADAM smells good
with soft Korean floral scent. It suits the younger age very well.

Yehwadam Revitalizing Serum (45ml) @ RM208.90

 Function: ★★★
*must-have* It is the star product of the range, an extra soothing serum for all skin types!

For the best of revitalizing and re-energizing effects, the serum is a “concentrate” added with the
Lotus Flower Extract (soothing) and Honeysuckle Flower Extract (removes puffiness and redness).

What I like: ★★★
The lightweight serum soothes the skin and reduces the redness on sensitive skin areas very well.
The serum feels smooth on the skin and finishes as a clean and fresh layer without feeling sticky.


Texture: ★★★
Beige, glue-like dewy texture; yet not sticky at all.
It leaves a very moisturizing layer of "lotion" onto the skin. So soothing and calming!

Fragrance: ★★★
It smells good with soft Korean herbal and floral scent

If you need just one product to soothe and revitalize the skin, this is the serum you need.
But it can also be used interchangeably with the Snow Lotus Pearl Capsule cream which I will review later in this post!


Yehwadam Revitalizing Emulsion (140ml) @ RM130.90

Function: ★★★★☆
As it is liquid-based and made of nano particles, it can provide
long-lasting moisturizing and nourishing protection to the skin’s barrier. 

What I like: ★★★
Despite of the slightly thick texture, it nourishes the skin very well, leaving it soft like a baby.
It helps as a moisturizer to prep the skin before putting on makeup, best used during the day.


Texture: ★★★
Clear white serum-like texture. Similar to the serum, it is very lightweight and leaves a smooth finish.

Fragrance: ★★★★★
Just can’t stop falling in love with the beautiful floral scent.


Yehwadam Revitalizing Eye Cream (25ml) @ RM199.90

Function: ★★★★☆
It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and dark circles around the eyes using the “energy” from the natural traditional herb ingredients. Its ceramide content suits those with sensitive skin, because it does not irritate the sensitive eye area.

What I like: ★★
I always remind myself to take good care of the eyes; don't wait till the fine lines and wrinkles appear. It smooths out around the eye when I massage the cream in circular motion around the eyes. As it feels a tad thick, so a little amount is sufficient to go a long way.


Texture: ★★★★☆
Dense, balm-like cream in beige color that feels silky smooth around the eyes.

Fragrance: ★★★★
Slightly heavier in herbal scent; but helpful to freshen the eyes.


Yehwadam Revitalizing Cream (50ml) @ RM208.90

Function: ★★★★☆
This nourishing and firming cream creates a protective layer to hydrate and smooth the skin at all times. The best part is, the texture has similar structure as the skin composition, hence it is able to restore skin elasticity from deep within.

What I like: ★★★
The ultra thick texture firmly adheres to the skin, but I am surprised that it leaves no greasy finish.
As I only use it for my night skincare regime after a long day out, the cream can last really long too.


Texture: ★★★
Very thick and high adherence to the skin.

Fragrance: ★★★
It smells quite consistent for the whole series. Lovely!

The Face Shop YEHWADAM Snow Lotus Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream (50ml) @ RM257.90

Of course, the 5 basic skincare steps in the anti-aging line would be more effective when combined with the star product of YEHWADAM series – the all-new Pearl Capsule Cream, a special double care product with brightening, hydrating and anti-wrinkle benefits.

It's my first time seeing this new type of cream formula -- Real pearl-like capsules in the cream.

Function: ★★★
The pearls look so luxurious right? If you are looking for concentrated brightening skincare,
rich moisture and lifting benefits in one product, this is worth a try! 

Each pearl capsule contains concentrated glowing white pearls harvested from natural cultivation sites and rare snow lotus ingredients that help achieve the bright, glowing skin. To keep the nourishing ingredients fresh and effective, it is made into capsule form to minimize its contact with air, hence lesser oxidation and contamination of the product. 

How To Use: As a facial cream on its own / As a step before applying cream.

As Skincare
1. Use a spatula to scoop out moisturizing cream along with 3-4 pearl capsules.
2. Gently crush the pearl capsules and spread evenly all over the face.
3. Apply another layer of 2-3 pearl capsules to reduce discoloration.

Before Makeup
1. Mix 1-2 pearl capsules into your base makeup to give your skin a healthy glow.

Beauty Tips: Pat your face with your palms to aid absorption.

What I like: ★★
The brightening effect is instantaneous! It tones up the skin naturally as soon as it touches the skin. And I can use it alternately with Yehwadam Revitalizing Serum for the best of anti-wrinkle and brightening effect.

Texture: ★★★
The gel-like cream is rich and moisturizing, whereas the creamy capsule blends very well
into the gel without any sticky feeling. Plus, I like the fresh finish it gives to the skin.

Fragrance: ★★★
As I open up the luxurious bottle, it exudes a lovely floral aroma with hints of sweet peach.
So soft and calming to the soul.

My YEHWADAM Experience
Verdict: 
1. Overall, the YEHWADAM Revitalizing Anti-aging series is very different from any anti-aging line I've tried. It does not feel "heavy" on the skin or create any breakouts. ❤ 
2. YEHWADAM is effective to firm and moisturize the skin, allowing the skin texture to feel young again. I am loving it!
3. My favourite products? Definitely the YEHWADAM Revitalizing Serum and Snow Lotus Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream!
