I could’ve been Asian in another life as I am simply obsessed with whitening products of any kind. The Asian market is flooded with an array of various whitening, brightening products to keep skin milky and fair however the US market not so much. Although this year I am seeing an array of 50+ SPF products, skin tone correctors, etc…so perhaps we are finally catching on to the whitening trend that’s taken Asia by storm for many, many years.
In my quest for less duller skin I purchased Skin Food Fermented Pomegranate Whitening Sleep Mask. Why does the name make me feel like I’m in the basement making illegal liquor? This sleeping mask promises whiter, brighter skin.
Does it work?
I think I’m coming to terms with the fact that I may be a mask junkie. Hoarding facial masks like they are going out of style or something, applying them nightly, convincing myself that I look whiter, brighter, more youthful…
Yeah, all the signs of a mask junkie.
I’ve been using The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng-gi Pack for ages since I get a little high off the scent. This is part of Skin Food’s Raspberry range and you might remember the eye cream I reviewed a while ago from the collection. This has a strange freshly turned dirt, herbal scent going on that I find terribly addicting. Some folks say it smells like Chinese medicine herbs but I don’t get that from it, I get freshly turned up dirt! Surprising since I’m fruity, sweet kinda girl and anything that’s remotely smells like stinky hippie is tossed into the bin…but this…I find soothing somehow.
What’s it do?
Does it work?
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?
The Skin Food Black Egg Pore Primer needs a new name. Black egg? Seriously? I’m thinking rotten egg when I saw the packaging. Guys, we really need to rethink the name here.
They claim it’ll make your skin as smooth and firm as a freshly hard boiled egg, thus the name eh?
Does it work?
The Skin Food Banana Yogurt Mask is meant for soothing sensitive skin but I find it’s a treat to tuck in my fridge and smooth on after a stressful day!
