Another short review on Skinfood’s Watery Berry Blending Cream, based on samples of this product that I got. This interesting product consists of two components, a gel and a cream, and claims to be very moisturizing. The idea is: by mixing the two components together by yourself, you can customize the cream to your needs.
The product is described in the following text by Skinfood:
Watery Berry Blending Cream is a blendable cream that promotes soft, glowing skin with berry extracts and sodium hyaluronate. Custom-blend the hydrating clear gel and nourishing cream core depending on your skin type and condition.
After serum/emulsion application, dispense the clear gel and cream in a 2:1 ratio on the back of your hand. Mix well and apply to skin. Adjust the blending ratio according to your needs.
Berries Story: Cloudberries, lingonberries, and raspberries from Lapland, a region famous for its Santa Claus Village, provide superior antioxidant properties.
Sodium hyaluronate Story: Sodium hyaluronate holds up to 30 times its volume in water, transforming dry skin into a soft, glowing texture.
I wish I could translate the description for you. Especially the part where they compare this cream to the royal honey cream. If anyone is able to translate I’ll be happy if he mails me or comments :D
The sample looks like this: it is made from two sachets, each containing one of the components. One sample contains enough for about two applications. Although I must admit that it is really difficult to get a 2:1 ratio by pushing out the sample from the sachet. The jar might be easier to handle…:D
You can accustom this cream to your need, depending on your skin type. If you have dry skin, you mix more of the cream core, the so called “nutrition core” and if you have oily skin you mix more of the gel or “transparent cream”. I like the idea of customizing your cream by yourself. ♥
The cream feels nice on the skin. Because of the gel-like part it is really bendable and nice in its feeling on the skin. It needs some time to absorb, but afterwards it is possible to apply BB cream or similar above without flaking or caking. It is usable at night, too…At least it worked for me, hehe. It is a nice moisturizer and makes your skin feel supple, too. If anybody with oily skin has tried out Skinfood’s Watery Berry Blending Cream, I’d like to know if it worked out for them, too. Btw, the cream has a nice sweet and fruity smell, but it doesn’t linger too long, nor does it become unpleasant.
The full sized product comes in a jar, I don’t know if they provide a spatula, but according to the advertising picture it should have one. The jar contains 50 g of product and costs on W2beauty for US$ 25.60. If you use my link or the sponsor code 088505 for registration at W2Beauty you’ll get a 5.00 $ voucher after registration.
