Sulwhasoo Renodigm Dual Care Cream 40ml Review

This is Sulwhasoo Renodigm Dual Care Cream, which is known to play the role of a sunblock and prevent the aging of the skin by controlling the heat inside the skin. 

Sulwhasoo Renodigm Dual Care Cream
40 ml
SPF 30 / PA ++ / TPF 40 

What? TPF?
It is an abbreviation of Thermal Protection Factor and when it says TPF 40 it means that it blocks 40% of the heat that's exposed. I bought this product at the duty free shop at the airport when my husband was going on a business trip because it looked like a product that seems to match very well on me. 

The main ingredients of Thermal Protection Factor are chamaecyparis obtusa glycone, prunus mume, oldenlandiae herba and red ginseng extracts. Everything except red ginseng are unfamiliar ingredients to me. Let me briefly summarize about the product for you. 

Chamaecyparis obtusa glycone: As an oriental ingredient that forms the skin's barriers, it prevents the skin troubles by reducing the stimulation caused by the heat. 

Prunus mume: Prunus mume, which is known to be an ingredient that's created by fumigating the plums, is an oriental ingredient that calms down the rough and dry skin. 

Oldenlandiae herba: As an ingredient that has the effects of oxidation three times more than vitamin C, it prevents the skin from becoming dark by blocking the skin's oxidation.

Red ginseng extracts: The saponin enhances the aging of the skin caused by the heat. 



It means that Sulwhasoo Renodigm Dual Care Cream prevents the aging othe skin by reducing the stimulation caused by the heat. 
The key point over is the block of heat. 

When you open the lid, you'll be able to find the mouth that looks quite special. 
The content comes out around that circle in the middle when you press it. 
You can cover your entire face with the amount that comes out by pumping it once. 

I applied it on my dry hand. 
It's white cream type. 

It didn't turn my skin white and I cannot say that it's a type of product that gets absorbed into the skin that well. Even though it is sort of heavy on the skin, it's very moist and refreshing as it gets absorbed into the skin. The refreshing feeling of this product is sort of different than the feeling that you get when you apply a medical patch. It feels like the heat of the skin is cooling down. 
I guess this is the effect of TPF. 

Let me be frank over here. This is my personal evaluation of the product. 
The product doesn't seem to have many other advantages by considering the price other than the refreshing feeling. The SPF is very low and (I usually use those sun creams that are over 40)
and it doesn't seem to play an outstanding role of the base as well. 
It also felt sort of heavy on me. 

Eventually, Sulwhasoo Renodigm Dual Care Cream has become an expensive decoration on my dressing table. Would the product have better effects on me when I am older?
Of course, the product would expire when I am older... 

So that's the end of my subjective review. :)
