I Get a Subtle Glowing Skin With This Product!

Still on a hunt for glowing base?  A skin that looks like you came out straight from a Koreanovela?

Same as you, that is my ultimate "skin peg" so a product that can give me such glow will always be welcomed in my home and in this Blog!

A whitening cream that protects from environmental aggressors, such as air pollution and sun damage.

Strengthens and fortifies with an effective anti-pollution ingredient that consists of 5 kinds of seaweed extracts; hydrates, plumps, and brightens with hyaluronic acid similar to the natural moisturizing factor (NMF) in skin; boosts elasticity for a firmer look with portulaca oleracea, pearl, and collagen extracts; lightens and brightens with niacinamide to prevent skin darkening and discoloration.

The product is housed in a tube which is perfect because I like squeeze type tube with sharp tip making it easy for me to dispense the right amount of product needed.  Though the tube is small for a "skincare" product, it has both positive and negative sides to it --- positive side is that you can test if a product work for you without paying a hefty price then realizing it doesn't work.  On the negative side, if you love this product, this 30ml tube won't last you long because for the whole face on a daily basis, you'll probably use this up in less than a month (if used day and night) and a little bit over a month if used once a day.

The product is a lightweight cream that has white texture.  Fret not, it's not a whitening product that will make your face glow with crystals and shimmers, I actually like this for the subtle glow it gives!

Let's talk about the product itself.  Does it work?

For this full tube, I can't see any differences in terms of whitening, I doubt I whiten that quickly because I am already fair to start with PLUS I use sunscreen on a daily basis so that helps in keeping my skin fair.

I like the scent of the product, most ESFOLIO products smells great which is good because I like using skincare products that has a relaxing scent.  

The product spreads easily and gets absorbed into my skin in no time, which is great because I"m always in a rush for the next step --- makeup application.

Before and After

The product is mainly an extra step you may want to add if you want a base that would make your skin glow naturally.  It does not contain any SPF so separate sunscreen is definitely needed.  Look at my before and after photo above, it does not give a white cast like most whitening products, it made my skin looks brighter, healthier with a subtle glow especially on my cheek area.

All skin types can use this product, it gives off a matte finish yet it doesn't dry out my skin, I like it that it keeps the oil at bay on areas around my face that tends to oil up midday!  It does not enhance pores or fine lines and wrinkles --- which is always good news!

Overall, I highly recommend this product and will repurchase!
