TL;DR

Summary

Feels I probably won’t because I wish to try other creams.
Does it effing work? Yeah.
Texture So filmey/siliconey, like a glue. Kinda thick, not runny.
Packaging Jar. ):
Smell Smells nice. Like a mild floral perfume.
Finish Greasy.
Good for
  • Brightening dull/uneven skin.
  • Non-acne prone or non-sensitive  skin.
  • Normal to dry skin.
  • Night-time use.

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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.

First Impressions

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.

Additional Blab:

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.

My routine when I used this product:

Morning Night
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence
NARUKO Magnolia Toner NARUKO Magnolia Toner
Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid + Jason Vitamin E Oil
Innisfree Percect UV Protection Cream Triple Care Human Nature Acne Defense Gel as spot treatment
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream
Tretinoin 0.05% 3 times a week

Okay, stfu already. Where do I buy this?

Btw, this is a Korean product. You can only find it online, unless you’re in Korea.

Amazon: ~23 USD
