Hello! as you might already know, recently im siao over korean/jap skincare pdts…. and of cos i will read lotsa reviews before buying them. but still, nothing beats my own experience right?
im not much of a writer, but i shall attemp at my first review of this cleanser that was very raved about and forever out of stock online. its the Holika Holika Egg Soap!
i was using the Fancl Washing Powder before this and was looking fwd to finishing it so that i can start using this soap! and yesterday was my first time!! i didnt capture photos of the experience so this photo was just taken when i woke up.
yups, so what im suppose to do is just wet the soap, and foam will lather from the surface of the eggs. Yes, like many blogs says, the smell is really clean and refreshing. after a rich lather is formed, i spread the lather all over my face and massage.
next is the part where i feel strange… rinsing. i was rinsing the lather off and as i rinse, i can hear and feel something squeaky between my hands and my face. its like rubbing your hands on a balloon (inflated). i can really hear the squeaks! strange right!! the only thought that came to my mind is if there is any subtance residing on my skin that creates this ‘layer’ of balloon skin haha.
after drying my face, its no longer squeaky, but im certain the subtance is there =X. my face feels clean, not tight or dry, and smooth!
i dont know why my camera dont capture my flaws. i have lots of enlarged pores and blackheads on my nose and its surroundings. i read that this soap can reduce blackheads man!! well its only my 2nd time using so i can only tell a few weeks later.
In any case, this is a great soap! i give this 3.9/5! i deduct 1 point for the squeaky rubbery sound which i am rather bothered about. and 0.1 point for storage issues in the bathroom. the casing it came with is made of cardboard so no way i can leave that and get all drenched in my tiny bathroom. so i had to find a plastic container and store that in the bathroom.
If you wish to buy this egg soap, you can get it here the owner Zhen is really nice and lovely and generous with samples 🙂 warning: the site is addictive!
