Skin Food Lemon Brightening Cleansing Oil Review

Skin Food Lemon Brightening Cleansing Oil

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!

Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Review & Swatches

Almay Smart Shade CC Cream1

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.

Oddness!

Nature Republic Super Origin CC Cream Review & Swatches

Nature Republic Super Origin CC Cream

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!
