Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder is a loose sheer powder available in four shades that launched quite sometime ago and has been part of the permanent Skinfood Collection for a while now.
Originally I purchased the #23 shade to replace my Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder because I wanted something to set my concealer. Later on I discovered the awesomeness of Ben Nye Banana Powder but Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder had already become apart of my daily makeup regime.
Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist keeps popping up with different packaging and formulations every so often that it is enough to confuse a girl! You might be familiar Facial Water Vita-A–B– and C Mist which this kinda resembles in terms of formula.
All of these mists are made with a base of Alaskan Glacier Water, supposedly it’s pure glacier water! I just can’t understand where Korea is tapping it from…I mean do they have a huge glacier block melting in a warehouse somewhere? Or do they just go to Alaska for the water every time they wanna whip up a facial mist? Or do they use priority flat rate shipping and have the glaciers or water shipped to Skin Food HQ? I want in on the production process here.
Supposedly the water is enriched with oxygen, potassium, calcium, magnesium and other great beneficial skin loving minerals.
Either way, I’m somehow hopeful they actually improved the formula as I didn’t love it my first time around. And actually felt kinda bad because so many people proclaimed what a HG (holy grail) eye makeup remover it was.
Yeah, it kinda does resemble a milk shake as it’s a bi phase remover that has a milky liquid on the bottom half and a more oil-like one on the top. Shake it and it becomes a milky substance for whisking away eye makeup easily.
My main issue with it was it created trippy cloud vision. As much as I’d like to turn the lights down low, throw a few colored scarfs over my lamp shades, and put on a little Hendrix on while enjoying my tab dropping lack of vision I can’t say I feel completely comfortable when something weird is up with my eyes. I have a panic attack when I need to get them dilated.
So here’s hoping new packaging means an improved formula!
Have you every used Skin Food’s Milk Shake Makeup Remover?
Dontcha just hate oil cleansers or eye makeup removers that give you cloudy vision!?
Ok, I admit it, I make little spreadsheets of skincare I want to try. I call them my Do Want lists. I basically have a spreadsheet for moisturizers, eye creams, and other skincare products that I want to try at some point. Most of them are gimmicky moisturizers that probably won’t change my life any time soon but one can hope that they’ll be amazing.
When it comes to Korean skincare my lemmings deepen because truly Asian brands promise the world when it comes to skincare and you utterly buy into that fact due to how fresh and incredible the promo models look in the advertisements.
Here are five moisturizers, including a Twi-hard one, that I want to try.
