The Review: Skin Food Egg White Cleanser

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.

The Roundup: May 2015

It’s the start of June which means it’s favourites time. Here I’m rounding up what I’ve been loving and what’s been making me happy this month.

      Makeup – I’ve used the Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara for years. It’s cheap and does a great job at plumping my lashes. I find it easy to build up from a natural every day right look through to ‘woah-there’ volume for night. I already have a backup on hand because mascara is the one item of makeup I couldn’t be without.

Skincare – This Skin Food Egg White Foam Cleaner has the most unique texture, it almost feels like shaving foam but leaves my skin feeling clean not stripped. I look forward to using this every evening and my skin has been thanking me for it.

Haircare – My hair gets easily weighed down but also needs conditioning, enter the miraculous Milk_Shake Leave in Conditioning Foam. I use this on towel dried hair through the mid-lengths and ends then brush it through to disperse evenly. The foam makes sure my hair isn’t weighed down but the leave-in conditioning element makes sure my hair still gets the moisture it needs. Plus it smells like banana nesquik…heaven.

Fashion – I have not taken this sleeveless jumper from Next off. Having doubts as to when I’d wear this I’ve been finding it perfect for the on-off British weather and it goes with pretty much everything in my wardrobe.

Home – I made the mistake of heading off to Homesense with no shopping list in mind, luckily I was well behaved and only came out with 2 items. 1 being this gorgeous battered metal side table, it was love at first sight.

Random – I’ve been addicted to watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix this month. Limiting myself to one episode a night has been a struggle but there are 5 series so I’ve got a way to go yet.

What have you been loving this month?
