The Skin Food Bean Moist Emulsion
I bought this emulsion in December 2008 actually. That time, my skin was rough and bloody dried out!! I suspected the causes were Ponds skin care range that I had been using that time. The cleansers, toner and facial foam. Unfortunately, Ponds cream and lotion could do nothing to recover my skin moisture. Thus, I went to look for a new 'BFF' for my skin. Lucky I found this emulsion!! I bought it at The Skin Food store in Mall Taman Anggrek. It cost me about IDR 160k (that time), which IMO, is not expensive for a Korean brand. The bottle is made of a glass (not a plastic!), and contains of 160ml lotion. So, it definitely lasts for quite a while. I have been using it until now, btw. The price is really reasonable and worth the quality.
The texture of this emulsion is just like a lotion. It's very nice because it's not too runny nor thick. Maybe 'emulsion' just another name of 'lotion'? Well, I'm not quite sure. But from what I know, you should follow this skin care regime for the best result:
1. Cleansing (oil/foam)
Gee!! How much should I spend for such pattern?? Thus, I skip the toner, essence and cream. Good cleansers and brilliant lotion are all I need to get my ideal type of skin ;)
This emulsion has a subtle fragrance. Just like another Korean cosmetics. But it's not annoying at all since it doesn't smell alcoholly.
The emulsion is easily absorbed into my skin and leaves no sticky feeling on my skin surface. The moisture remains, so you can either use it overnight or else, as a moisturizer before BB cream/sunscreen.
After using it for 3-4 days, my skin recovered. This is exactly the best part of this emulsion. This has been my holy grail for months, until I've had a new baby from Etude House. The only thing that is lack from this emulsion is the whitening/brightening effect. It would've been better if it could brighten up my skin. :p
The overall rating for The Skin Food Bean Moist Emulsion is 4.5 out of 5.
