[Review] Innisfree Mineral Water Foundation

Standard

IMG_5762

I got this mineral water foundation in Korea last year for 15,000 won.

Was quite excited since i’ve never tried mineral make up and always wanted to try.

Personally i prefer foundation / bb cream that is watery in nature as they spread and blend easily, without leaving a cakey feeling.

I really like the water texture of this foundation, i think this is what a tinted moisturizer feels like (althuogh i have not tried)/

its probably the same thing if you ask me, just fancy names to vary the products.

it blends very lightly into my skin, and i use this every day if i am going out.
Coverage is not high, so dont expect to cover all your acne scars, but it does lighten them.
my skin feels moist and light after putting this and my face looks so naturally nude.

it also give off a healthy glow, and i dont have to put much powder to set the make up.

it comes with SPF15 PA+, which is not alot so i always use sunscreen as a base.

here’s a comparison, i put this only on the left of the photo.
it covers imperfections naturally and skin tone is more even.

i would mind buying this again!

[Review] Innisfree Green Barley Bubble Cleanser

Standard

Every night, my cleansing regime consists of 3 steps:

1) Make up remover – now using FANCL Mild cleansing oil

2) Gel wash with clarisonic mia – now using Avene soapless foaming gel (My Holygrail!)

3) Bubble wash – currently using this Innisfree green barley bubble cleanser

picked this up during my korea trip last year and i was in Innisfree store looking for some stuff to stock up.

Personally, i love Innisfree as they use very natural ingredients and free of parabens etc.

and of cos, my dear YoonA from Girls Generation is their spokesperson

the reason why i use a foam cleanser on top on my gel cleanser is because with the clarisonic Mia, it cannot reach the nose contours very well and i do not use it over and around my eye area. does anyone do that? the brushes seem too harsh..

so those eye and nose contours are not cleansed properly and i will use another foam cleanser to cleanse those areas properly + my face once more.

Also, i am a very firm believer that foam is essential to cleansing. I feel that foam can pick up the dirt and grease from the pores on a minuscule level. so i feel more secure when i end my regime with a foam cleanser.

this is how the foam looks like:

and upon spreading:

this has a sourish smell like light vinegar i dont know why.

when i wash on my face during breakouts with open acne, it stings slightly upon application.

maybe its the alcohol content 😦

however it feels clean after washing and sometimes when i apply toner i feel a certain sting again. maybe its the toner, i dont know. i never had this issue before so i cant wait to finish this bottle.

i feel its not as gentle as the Biore Marshbmellow whip so i dont think i will get this again.

Here’s my face after washing and drying.

Happy Saturday all 🙂
