|Smell||Smells nice. Like a mild floral perfume.|
- Easy to spread.
- Seals in moisture quite well, works well as a last step moisturizer
- Smells nice.
- Comes with a free spatula.
- Sexy-ass packaging.
- It’s in a jar.
- Seems to sit on top of the skin until hours later.
- So filmey, like putting on soft glue on your face.
- I find it too heavy for day time use.
- I’m too lazy to wash the spatula.
WTF does it feel like?
This thing seriously feels like glue. However, it isn’t that runny or sticky. It takes a while to absorb into your skin, unless you put a shit ton on your face.
WTH is that smell?
It has a mild floral scent.
How the fudge do I use this?
It’s quite a thick cream that I use after my toners, essences and serums. I apply a small amount on my face at night.
What it promised us:
|Product Claims||How I feel|
|If there are any, it’s probably in Korean.||Which I don’t understand.|
I’ve only used this cream for a week or so, and I’m already kinda annoyed. Firstly, I dislike the glue-like texture. It doesn’t even seem to absorb into the skin! And when I cleanse the morning after, chunks of white something come off my face when I use this cream. WTF is that? Silicone?
I wanted to love this because of the nice ingredients list (niacinamide and ceramides!) but I just can’t get over its weird texture.
