I reviewed some products fom the Lafine Vegetable range already in the past and to make it complete I have a review for the Lafine Vegetable Firming Massage Cream today, which I received from BNTnews. To be honest, it is one of the products I was most dissapointed this month. Please scroll down to read more:
Lafine is the first brand of Lamy Cosmetics, a Korean Cosmetics Company. Lamy Cosmetics is a Korean cosmetics company with 6 different brand. The brands are Renoma, Geo, Sortie, Mennen, Catalina Geo, and, the brand mentioned in this post, Lafine. I reviewed a couple of products from Lamy Cosmetics already, for example the Lafine Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream and the Lafine Vegetable Foam Cleanser.
Lafine Vegetable Firming Massage Cream is part of the Lafine Vegetable line, which uses 5 vegetable ingredients for nourishing the skin: tomato, carrot, parsley, cucumber and water parsley. This is also displayed by the design of the cardboard box. On the cardboard box you will also find the Korean and the English description of the product. The Lafine Vegetable Firming Massage Cream is used after toner and cleansing and it says to apply a generous amount of the cream on your forehead, nose, cheeks and jaw. Massage in little circle motions from the interior to the exterior of your face, and wipe it off with a soft tissue.
The product comes in a jar similar to the Lafine Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream and also looks like it from the design apart from the white color of the jar instead of green in case of the cleansing cream. Why I was dissapointed from this products now lies in the ingredients lists. If you compare the ingredients if the massage cream and the cleaning cream you will see that they are almost identical apart from 2 or 3 ingredients. These differences in the ingredients do not make any major changes in the texture of the product, which looks identical, too!
Both the Lafine Vegetable Firming Massage Cream and the Deep Cleansing cream have a creamy white texture with green and red pearls inside. The pearls disolve while rubbing the cream. The scent of the product is nice, like with the whole range of Lafine Vegetable products since it has a fresh cucumber scent. Also in terms of how the skin feels after removing the cream is similar and I’m not sure whether the Massage Cream and the Deep Cleansing Cream are different products at all.
For me the Lafine Vegetable Firming Massage Cream and the Lafine Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream are the same. The differences in the ingredients are minor and I’m honmestly dissapointed to see that even the texture is the same.

Just as a short reminder: All products mentioned and reviewed on this blog are of my personal opinions. This product here was sent to me for reviewing purpose by http://www.bntnews.co.uk/ which doesn’t influence me in providing my honest opinion on the products.
That’s such a shame that they’re essentially the same product! Were the effects the same as well?
