I swear most bloggers (and perhaps readers too!) would look down their noses at me for reviewing skincare within a week or two of testing it out but that’s how the Muse rolls.
In all seriousness my skin is like a bulletproof vest. I can pretty much test out anything and not break out. I imagine if I took to slathering acid on my face I’d probably be quite alright. That’s just how my skin is. So of course I do declare that I can pretty much get a feel for a moisturizer within first use. I can make a snap decision on the spot if I love it or if I hate it after first use.
My experience with Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence was a quickie I love you, I can’t live without you situation.
Skin Food is a Korean Brand available within Korea, I should sob so hard that I have to go through so much trouble to get my hands on it as it’s slowly worming it’s way into my heart with many a must have product.
Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence is a water-based serum that relaxes tired skin and is enriched with lettuce and cucumber extracts, collagen, and vitamins. It’s supposed to provide long lasting hydration while maintaining moisture retention on your skin.
Now I did say supposed up above didn’t I? Let’s change that to it does indeed provide long lasting hydration and maintains moisture throughout the day making my dry, tired skin breath a sigh of absolute relief.
I can honestly see this complete line becoming staple products for me as it’s awesome particularly if you suffer from dry skin. Strangely enough the formula is not heavy nor is it rich. Most products that are meant for dry skin tend to lean towards being heavier and richer this is the exact opposite. It’s a gel-like formula that’s extremely light and refreshing. First try I was thinking, “yea right this is so NOT going to do anything for my dry, flaky skin”. After nearly two weeks of use I’m a convert. It’s light formula has successfully made my skin almost normal. My forehead isn’t oily, between my brows is not flaking, my cheeks aren’t patchy and dry, my skin is simply dewy and fresh throughout the entire day!
Since this is a serum I do follow up with Skinfood Lettuce & Cucumber Jelly Cream (review coming soon). The combination of the two products keeps my skin in beautiful shape. I imagine this will easily replace my regular moisturizer and I’ll be indulging further in other items from the line.
Overall, I’d say this was absolutely incredible especially for the price tag (Under $10 USD). I’m hopeful it’s light formula will also work well into the Summer months. My idea of taming dry skin is always about heavier creams, lotions, and potions, but Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence has changed my mind completely.
Truly incredible and Muse Approved for purchase.
Although not available in the US I’ve had the pleasure of seeing it on E-bay for as little as $14.99. In my humblest it’s worth that or a little higher.
