Laneige White Dew Emulsion Review

Laneige White Dew Emulsion
Bought for: P1650/100ml
Bought from: Althea Korea

I don't know about you but emulsions in general, for me, isn't exactly a necessary step in skincare.  I have regular toners and moisturizers that do the overall job. I also think that my oily skin can only tolerate a lighter moisture level than any other skin types. However, if you have the time and the budget, why not? I know I couldn't hold you back. The reason why I have this long introduction (haha!) is that I purchased my very first emulsion and this is from a brand that I truly love–Laneige. It wasn't my intention to include it in my April Haul but it suddenly came to me that since I'm trying most in their White Dew range, might as well include it for a more accurate review. They say products in the same range will give a better result. Any say on this?


Looking for bright, glowy skin? Laneige's White Dew range contains Saururus Chinensis extract that works effectively to lighten dark spots and even out skin coloration. It's also formulated with the glycol component of Phyto sugar water that moisturizes and brightens the skin. The emulsion is a lightweight moisturizer that penetrates easily into the skin, leaving it feeling supple, looking bright and feeling great. With continuous use, you'll be left with a complexion that's supple and radiant, and who doesn't want that?

Laneige White Dew Emulsion claims to moisturize and brighten the skin. It works to brighten dark spots, evens skin tone and hydrates. It's also lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin.

This products is also loaded with three (3) star ingredients: Trehalose (a moisturizing agent that binds water to the skin, preventing evaporation to keep it hydrated for longer), Saururus Chinensis Extract (effectively brightens the skin and reduces dark spots) and Phyto Sugar Water (moisturizes the skin and brightens it for a radiant complexion).


I received this item in good condition. It came with a cardboard box and a mini flyer that displays information about the product. It's very similar to Laneige White Dew Skin Refiner except the emulsion has lesser content, hence shorter. The shimmery cap and sleek silver pump added a more luxury touch. The bottle itself is quite heavy and sturdy and it feels like the weight and quality of the bottle is something you are also paying for. Seriously, the packaging looks and feels expensive. That being said, I find it not very ideal for travelling.


Laneige White Dew Emulsion smells like the entire White Dew range and if I am going to describe it, it smells clean and not very overpowering. It has a milky white color, thicker than ampules but thinner than creams. It has a very consistent formulation and it's easy to apply and get absorbed into the pores. The only thing is that it makes my skin look oily already after just applying my Laneige Clear C Advance Effector Ex and Laneige White Dew Skin Refiner.


I use 1-2 small pumps of this emulsion and careful not to over apply as it makes my skin look oily. I would then massage it in circular motion all over my face and pat the rest for full absorption right after cleansing and toning and before applying the rest of my makeup.


Okay. I think I know now why this isn't exactly a must-have for me. It feels thin and lightweight but ironically, it makes my skin oilier which is so much more than what I can handle. I think those with drier skin type will enjoy this product much more. On a lighter note, it helps with the brightening of the skin and using it with the rest of the White Dew range, my skin is less red and feels a lot more supple. It's also gentle to the skin, non-sting and the best thing is that it will surely last for months since a little goes a long way.

I've read some reviews that this product made their skin lighter and their acne gone and I'm truly happy that they've found their holy grail. I know that it's too soon to claim my skin has lightened significantly (in less than two months of use) considering that skin lightening requires a gradual process. What I'm happy about is that my skin looks more even and less red than before.

For the meantime, I'm not thinking of repurchasing Laneige White Dew Emulsion as I feel like it isn't exactly very useful and there's a lot better and cheaper alternatives in the market. Let me know your experiences and what you think of this particular product from Laneige by posting your comments down below! I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
