Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage Review
Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage is an oil-free massage gel with lettuce and cucumber extracts that provides water and nutrients to skin.
I’m a huge fan of the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection and it’s my skincare of choice for Summer. I’ve had the massage gel laying about for a while but I never actually sit around massaging my face. Anyone actually embrace the technique?
A facial massage facilitates blood circulation and relaxes skin while helping with wrinkles thus a massage gel with good glide is always helpful.
Gimmick? Who knows! Lush Cosmetics had instructions and a video for giving oneself a full face massage which proved interesting and many Asian products and magazines recommend such techniques but I honestly don’t have the patience for it…I’m already doing way TOO much with my skin as is, now I need to massage it too?
A water based massage gel that softens skin and allows glide for a facial massage.
I’ve only used this a handful of times but after my initial face massage try I suddenly just stuck to using it as a way to get a bit more hydration to my skin or as a prep for foundation.
The formula is a runny gel which has a high water content so it absorbs easily and leaves behind a cool, refreshed feel. My dry skin needs a heck of alot more moisture than this can provide but if you have oily skin or normal that doesn’t require too much moisturizer this is a refreshing base for your makeup or just as a lightweight moisturizer.
It has a fresh scent that’s very subtle. The formula is extra gentle and cooling on my skin so those with sensitive skin can take advantage.
The joy of the product would be most appealing to those who actually do embrace a facial massage technique as the product gives a nice glide and allows your hands to move freely around your face and skin.
It’s not a necessary purchase unless you actually do give yourself facial massages.
- Those who give themselves or others facial massages.
- Those interested in a lightweight moisturizer of sorts that can act as a prep for makeup or as a lighter moisturizer for warmer weather days or oily skin!
- Those who aren’t keen shopping online or dealing with airmail (this is a Korean brand available in a few select Asian countries but not the US).
I think if you like and already use the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection you might like this but it is somewhat a useless product unless you’re actually one for facial massages. I happen to not be one of those people so the product is a bit useless. Oily skin might like it as a lightweight moisturizer!
Nothing wrong with it really but it doesn’t really prove useful for most folks.
Do you give yourself a facial massage?
Skin Food is sold online at www.skinfood.sg and at www.yesstyle.com and finally Sasa.com also carries some of the line however most of shops DO NOT sell at retail prices and are considerably more expensive plus airmail fees.
