To motivate myself to start going through my samples, I decided to give myself a one a day challenge and so here are seven from the past week! The @Belif.Official Aqua Bomb will take me a while longer to get through, but here are some first impressions of the products:
🏻Luke Pore Strip: The instructions said to leave this on for 20-30 minutes, which I was surprised by because it seemed longer than usual. Overall it did a better job of leaving clay residue on me than taking sebaceous filaments from me onto it.
@TheFaceShop.Official The Therapy Water Drop Anti-Aging Serum: This has a true gel texture and soft floral fragrance. It doesn't disappear into the skin; it sinks in, but you can definitely feel a slight residue from it.
@DHCSkincare Coenzyme Q10 Brightening Moisture: This is the exact colour and texture of lemon curd. Smells faintly of school glue. Takes a while to settle into the skin, and feels more oily than the average cream but doesn't feel heavy necessarily.
@BelifUSA Aqua Bomb: This smells like Listerine, but sweeter, and there's a cooling sensation upon application. It's a sticky light cream, like but not identical to Joseon Beauty Cream, and I would agree with the general sentiment that it might suit oily people more than dry.
@LioeleCalifornia Water Drop Sleeping Pack: This is sky blue and looks very, very waxy. When it settled it didn't feel as sticky as a lot of other sleeping packs, like Cosrx's Honey Sleeping Pack. Worked adequately. My skin wasn't glowing in the morning, but it also wasn't drier than usual.
@TonyMoly.US_Official Banana Sleeping Pack: This is the only product of the bunch that I had been considering purchasing before. Someone mentioned that this was the best sleeping pack at sealing in moisture for them, but it was only average on me. Strong banana fragrance, texture of a stiff cream, settled a bit oily but not sticky.
️@LJH_Korea UV Daily Sun Gel: I'm actually really fond of this sunscreen. Very runny, spread easily, no visible white cast, though there was a citrus+sunscreen esque fragrance. - 45 minutes ago
