Review: THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam Pure Brightening Skincare Series

Hi! ❤ I am excited to be one of the first to try The Face Shop YEHWADAM (蘂花譚) Pure Brightening skincare line,
let me share the love with you babes!

Yehwadam (蘂花譚), The Face Shop's reinterpretation of Korean beauty and traditional herbal beauty recipes, is not something new to me. After YEHWADAM revitalising anti-aging series for young skin, now the brand introduces YEHWADAM Pure Brightening specially catered for those who want brighter, more radiant complexion. 

Wanna reduce the appearance of pigmentations, dark spots and dull skin tone?

Yehwadam Pure Brightening is an oriental herbal brightening / whitening anti-aging line that restores skin radiance. As days go by, we'll eventually feel that our skin is losing its clear and transparent features. If you find your skin rather dull and lack of radiance, this is the skincare series you should go for. 


Based on a traditional woman's unique "secret" brightening formula called the "Chil-baek-seol-yun-dan Complex", Yehwadam Pure Brightening contains 7 oriental herbal ingredients harvested from nature in Korea:
❤ Pearl, White Ginseng, Honeysuckle, Peony, Poria Cocos, Atractylodes Macrocephala and Cnidium Officinale;
❤ Without tar colorant and synthetic preservatives.

The unique part is, these 7 brightening ingredients are carefully heated in pure water for a long period of time using a method called Baek-ja to eliminate any toxins in the extraction process, resulting in the traditional herbs that are mild to the skin.

I have 4 items from the Yehwadam Pure Brightening series here. And they are pretty simple to use:
Step 1: Toner
Step 2: Serum
Step 3: Emulsion
Step 4: Cream

Yehwadam Pure Brightening is suitable for:
❤ Those who are currently using The Face Shop Miindo HGG Brightening line
❤ Those with dark spots, pigmentations, dull skin etc due to skin aging
❤ Those who are looking for brightening skincare with anti-aging benefits
❤ Those with dry skin but need a brightening formula

 Yehwadam Pure Brightening Toner (155ml)
After cleansing the skin, toner is something that you just can't skip.

How To Use:
Every morning and evening, after cleansing face,
apply adequate amount on face and pat lightly for absorption.

This soft, light-texture brightening and anti-aging toner has a 2-in-1 function: 
(1) Brighten the uneven and dull skin tone, and
(2) Moisturize skin

Its liquid texture is close to water but slightly thicker. Lightweight and silky,
it is easy to glide directly on skin or using cotton pad.

What I Like:★★★
It is well-absorbed into the skin and able to moisturize the skin well while leaving a healthy glow.

Fragrance: ★★★
A very mild, pleasant herbal scent that disappears very quickly during application.

*MUST HAVE* Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum (45ml)
It is the star product in Yehwadam Pure Brightening series. A must-buy item!

How To Use:
Apply adequate amount over skin and blend thoroughly.

Similarly, the soft-shine brightening serum infuses dull skin with moisture and reduces the appearance of dark spots/pigmentation. The serum contains lamellar, a moisturising ingredient that has a similar structure as the skin. The result? Better moisturizing benefits!

The clear white serum is very lightweight and leaves a smooth finish onto the skin.
No greasiness or unpleasant feeling at all.

What I Like:★★
It gives the skin a softer, shinier complexion.

Fragrance: ★★
It smells great with some sort of herbal-floral aroma which soothes the soul.


Yehwadam Pure Brightening Emulsion (140ml)
When the skin is all prepped up with toner and serum, it's time to apply emulsion to "lock in" the benefits.

How To Use:
After your serum, smooth over face and neck using gentle pressing motions to aid absorption. 

Deeply infused with intense moisture, it penetrates the skin with anti-aging ingredients
while creating a protective layer similar to skin structure to prevent moisture loss.

Very soft and silky, and in fact lighter than the previous step (serum).

What I Like:★★★
I find the content not as concentrated as the serum, hence ideal to forming the "protective layer" on the skin.

Fragrance: ★★★
A very mild, pleasant herbal scent that disappears very quickly during application.


Yehwadam Pure Brightening Cream (50ml)
Lastly, the anti-wrinkle and brightening cream is best applied as the last step for maximum absorption.

How To Use:
Dispense an adequate amount at the end of skincare routine and
gently massage over entire face. Pat with your palms for better absorption.

This creamy, highly-concentrated brightening cream instantly boosts skin's radiance and reduces the signs of aging skin.

Thickest among all the 4 steps, but I'd still consider it as lightweight, soft and silky.
And it is not the creamy "cream" type of product that we usually see for the last step of skincare.

What I Like:★★★
I love the silky finish it gives after blending. But caution needs to be given as the content is extremely rich,
so a small amount will be sufficient (otherwise, it may cause breakouts, depending on skin condition).

Fragrance: ★★★
Slightly richer in traditional herbs scent as compared to the rest of the Pure Brightening products.

1. If you are looking for a solution to transform your dull, pigmented skin into a brighter, more radiant complexion, then Yehwadam Pure Brightening is something worth considering. ❤ 
2. I love the unique fomula that combines Brightening + Anti-aging formula. Plus, these whitening products do not dry up the skin at all.
3. Must-have items: Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum and Cream.

The Face Shop YEHWADAM Pure Brightening skincare series (Priced from RM149.90 to RM239.90) is available at all TFS outlets and online store (

  2. Great post,Thanks for providing us this great knowledge,Keep it up.


  3. I tried white seed before this and my pores get bigger and my skin get darker. I want to try this yehwadam but i'm afraid my pores will get bigger and my skin will get darker.

  4. I got a sample kit when i bought random stuff at The Face Shop. I dislike any sort of whitening product because i'm a diver. It scares me to use whitening product of any sort that can damage my skin from the dives.

    I havent tried diving again from the time i bought Yehwadam, so i'll post an update. But so far, been using it under a month and there are visible results as early as now.

    However, i've had maybe a few breakouts since i used the product. Not sure if its one of the cons, or the breakout is related to my period.
