I’ve had Tony Moly Intense Repair Live Snail Cream in my stash a while now along with Tony Moly Intense Live Snail Eye Cream as well since they came as a set.
I believe Paris (My Women Stuff) either had a Holiday in Korea or somewhere else when she purchased these for me on request and it’s been quite a long time since she sent them to me so much so that I’m nearly done with the facial cream and have completely used up all the eye cream at this point.
I think perhaps they have been two of my first Snail Skincare products outside of Etude House’s snail moisturizer. Since that time I’ve tried a whole host of products with snail secretion including BB Creams, masks, sleeping packs, etc…etc….Snail is kinda an old trend at this point and Korea (and other Asian companies) are now moving on to venoms. Oh lawd…how does one keep up with all these skincare crazes?
Let’s take a look at Tony Moly’s version of Snail Cream and see how it holds up.
I ran out of my Shu Cleansing Oil so I decided to start trying a few other cleansing oils one of which is the Skin Food Lemon Brightening Cleaning Oil.
Just when I thought I tried every single Cleansing Oil Skin Food has ever made a new one pops across my path. The good news is this was considerably cheaper than replenishing my Shu Cleansing Oil so it was worth the try.
Supposedly it brightens skin as it cleanses but I do not see the point of a cleansing oil that washes away as a brightening agent…however, I’m game to try anything!
Take a look!
I think part of the irony of Almay Smart Shade CC Cream is the fact that the Almay Smart Shade Foundation is more of a CC Cream than this is.
At the moment CC Creams are pretty popular in Korea and we’re seeing some of that in the Western market. Most of these CC Creams in Asia are white, self adjusting formulas with lightweight textures. Remind you of anything? Almay’s Smart Shade Foundation is actually white and self adjusting….
I find it funny that their CC Cream actually doesn’t go the self adjusting root. It’s unusual that their original, old formulated foundation is more a CC Cream than a new product they just launched.
Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color in Passion Fruit is one of three new, limited edition shades released for Summer 2013 in Japan. Prepare to be amazed if you’re a fan of Jelly Eye Color because seriously there is like NO sparkle in this shade.
Truest story ever.
Nature Republic has two new Super Origin CC Cream (Complete Control Cream) formulas available in Korea at the moment. There’s a tinted version as well as a brightening version. I do suggest you go into a purchase for the tinted version as the brightening one is more of a primer versus an actual CC Cream.
Let’s take a look!
