This is a super shiny primer. I never expect it to be so shimmery. It suppose to be blurring. Which if you put on, you will look like a disco ball, but I guess it will blur imprefection as it will be quite hard to focus if your face is that shiny. But anyway, after concealers and powders, etc, it’s not as bad. It won’t give you matte finish, but it still works ok.
To me it doesn’t let me look extra oily. It’s just normal. It’s just the initial shock when it turn out shimmery when I push it out of the sachet. I would never buy this in the first place. But oh well, at least I know now.
Decided to get the pink one as it’s the original. It’s a really good cleansing balm. I mean I don’t have any other to compare it with. I have oil and cream though. So as compare to those, this is more fun. Cause it’s a solid but it just melts away and form up. It becomes oily and melt away the makeup. So a little goes a long way. And I find that this can last so much longer than oil.
A pink tube comes with a plastic scooper. So it’s really “hygienic”. I just think it will be good only for people who have their own bathroom or at least their own counter in the bathroom that others can’t touch. If not it’s just so messy. I put mine in my room in the box. So it’s quite troublesome to remove the box everytime I want to use it.
But it’s a really good balm. Cause it removes makeup. It’s not overly oily. It feels moisturising. It doesn’t feel squeaky clean but still very clean that kind of feeling. It takes sometime to rinse it off, but it’s fairly easy. I just like it.
And since I’m super lazy. I can use this, then I use micellar water with cotton pad, and I’m done with my “double” cleanse. And I face will be ok.
