Illutorial & Review: Skinfood Egg White Pore Foam

A while ago I purchased the Skin Food Egg White Pore Foam to try out as a cleanser! Apologies for the weirdly staring, no-makeup face of me. LOL. I actually made this before the eyelash falsie illutorial but didn’t have the guts to share bareface to the world hahaha. But since I created this, and I haven’t had time to do any other Makeup Monday posts for you guys, I’ve decided to post it anyway. #yolo?

This is an illutorial, as well as a review!

Review:

The product smells pretty weird when you first try it, but you do get used to it. After I used it, my skin had a very squeaky kind of feeling. When using it in conjunction with the brush, which exfoliates while you cleanse, my skin felt very clean and light. I highly recommend use with the cleansing brush because the skin feels a lot less rubbery. The formula is fluffy and foamy, after it’s namesake, and it feels very gentle on the skin.

Functionality: There’s definitely a difference in skin elasticity after use; mine felt a lot firmer. After one use, I also felt a difference in the size of my existing pores after a few hours; they are no longer as prominent which is great! I actually have a few larger whiteheads, and while the cleanser didn’t get rid of all of them (nothing seems to work -.-), it definitely refined the texture making them less obvious.

Long-term use: At times I found myself getting little white bumps after using it for a few consistent days in a row, probably because of my sensitive skin. :C However, because of the overall pore reduction it provides, I use this twice or three times a week rather than daily. Deep cleansers aren’t good to use every day anyway.

The effects of the cleanser are really apparent, which is more than I can say for a lot of cleansers, so there’s just no way I can pass this up when considering cleansers in the future.

Overall Breakdown:

The Good:

  • Gentle
  • Clean feeling
  • Skin feels tighter and firmer
  • Felt difference in pore size

The Bad:

  • Scent may not appeal to some
  • Can cause problems for sensitive skin if used daily

Illutorial: Natural Bottom Falsies

When you have practically non-existent bottom lashes, it can be hard to get a balanced eye look. I decided to try out some falsies for my bottom lash line, for whatever special occasion. I purchased these cheapo false bottom lashes from Ebay a while back:

I got this pack of 10 for only a couple of dollars (MUCH cheaper than normal – but they aren’t as feathery as the more expensive brands). They looked good on the model, but when they arrived I found that they looked way too unnatural for my tastes.

For a nearly a year I’ve just had them lying around in my draw, going to waste but recently I discovered a way to turn them into wearable, more natural looking lashes!

So instead of the usual step by step worded tutorials/reviews I’m trying out something a little different: introducing Illutorials! Basically, they’re my own little spin on those picture tutorial things you often see in Asian beauty magazines, but I decided to shorten the name to ~Illutorial~ (Illustrated Tutorial). Hope you guys like it (sorry I’m so vain HAHAHa)

Disclaimer: even though it probably looks really photoshopped, it’s mostly my camera settings & good lighting. LOL. Credits to joannastar for the Bokeh stock!
