The beauty world is buzzing over Korean skincare and makeup. On my trip to China this April, I picked up, among other things, the Skin Food Egg White Pore Foam cleanser. I’ve now been using it for 6 months and it’s almost finished so here are my thoughts on it.
I really enjoy using this cleanser, it lathers up unlike any cleanser I’ve ever used, it’s a thick foam that kind of reminds me of shaving cream. It doesn’t have any discernable scent and does a pretty good job at removing my makeup. But DO NOT get it in your eyes, I learnt the hard way! Egg whites are great for unclogging pores and controlling oils, therefore perfect for my combination skin.
To use I massage a 10p sized amount in my hands before stroking across my face and massaging in for a minute or so then remove with a flannel. I’m then left with squeaky clean skin. It’s gentle but I do think the formula is more suited to the summer months, as the weather is cooling off I’m finding it a little too stripping.
The shopper in me is desperate to buy a new cleanser and finish this off later. But this NEVER happens. So I’ll finish it now and move on to a Winter appropriate one when this is all gone. I do have some Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish samples so I might mix it up if my skin really starts to rebel.
I’d give this cleanser a solid 4/5, it’s great value for money (around £14) but I’ve taken a star off as this doesn’t carry me through the year and it’s darn hard to get hold of this side of the World.
