This is my very first Baviphat product!

I love the herbal/medicinal skincare products from Korea ever since Sulwhasoo. I don’t know if it’s because the smell is an improvement from childhood memories of bitter tasting Chinese herbal medicine – the Koreans got the scent right and it doesn’t smell bitter – but I really like that sort of smell! Anyway, the Yeyeonsoo Brightening Cleansing Foam by Baviphat contains 5 different herbal extracts and is a very soft foaming cleanser perfect for all skin types.


The texture of this cleansing foam is super soft, not thick or solid like the Hadalabo cleansing foam (just for reference). The scent is similar to most of the Korean herbal skincare, a little bit of pleasant ginseng scent but not overly pungent. The cleansing foam lathers easily with a bit of water and spreads very well on the skin. It doesn’t strip skin of moisture and leaves my skin nice and soft without tautness which I experience sometimes with drying cleansers.


I swear that after each use my skin does look a little ‘whiter’! It retails around USD$17 at

I have been using this for 2+ months and am enjoying it thoroughly. It’s an inexpensive but solid product, a real pleasure to use and I am happy to have tried out another great Korean brand!

    I never knew that Baviphat had such Oriental herbal products, especially since the brand always gave me a cutesy impression with the packaging of other products. That is still rather inexpensive and effective for that price range compared to Japanese and western cosmetics.

      I think this range is discontinued – though I am not completely sure…a shame, because it’s actually very nice! :)

    Unfortunately, Baviphat is going bankrupt :(

        I won’t be surprised if that is so. South Korea’s cosmetics market is so over-saturated and it takes a lot of star endorsement to actually survive, other than just good manufacturing or good skincare ingredients. A few companies simply cannot survive in that kind of cut-throat competition, and have either gone online, or if not, just merged with other companies.

        Part of the news surrounding Baviphat was also that the company itself violated the contract that it had signed with boyband , FT Island, by forcing them to endorse the brand outside of South Korea, and also, using promotional material related to them after the contract expired. The company had filed (in response to Ft Island’s suit against it) that it was experiencing financial difficulty and declining revenue, but still lost because the judge ruled partially in favor of FT Island and demanded that Baviphat pays them 36,000 USD. That certainly does not lessen the trouble.
