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.
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.
