Rant of the week; Cloud 9 Blanc De Brightening Cream

Hello darlings!

It’s that time of the week again, and I’m back with a product that didn’t send me to cloud 9, or any other nice cloud except for the clouds in my eyes when they were filled with tears and the feeling of betrayal.

Well, maybe it wasn’t that extreme, but it stung a bit to know that this floof of a miracle didn’t go well with my skin, at all. We were supposed to fly in the sky together, while looking awesome and whitened!

I have written a first impression on this earlier, click here to check it out!

So let’s get down and cloudy with the details on this one!

As you can see from the CosDna there really isn’t anything that suggest that my skin shouldn’t get along with it, but then again, my skin has a tendency to be one sneaky motherfucker, and never play by the rules.

Texture and smell:
“It actually looks like they’ve slaughtered an innocent cloud, grabbed the essence, mixed it with some cottage cheese and stuffed it in a tub. I mean look at that! If that doesn’t scream cream gone bad, then I don’t know what does. But it smells good tho! And the spatula is still cute.” It spreads evenly and smells nice, when you first apply it you will fear that your face is gonna stay that white, but when it gets to do it’s job and soak in, it will only leave a whitening effect, not the whole I just happened to plant my face in a bucket of egg shell coloured paint.



So here’s how the testing period went!
We got along just fine the first couple of times I tried it, but I made sure to only use it daytime, because that usually is the most effective way for me to see if it breaks me out or makes me purge. It wasn’t until I tried it in my evening routine that shit hit the fan!
I ended up getting this nasty milia looking thing right under my cheekbone, but it was angry and red (it’s still there if anyone’s wondering.) And I quickly understood that the floof was the sinner in my routine, considering that my skin fix products were the only thing in my routine at the moment (and they are all tested and trusted.)

But of course, being a little too naive and hopeful I tried it for a couple of days after this, but still got the same result, it whitened, but made angry spots appear in places I usually don’t break out, so with a heavy heart I had to let it go.

So overall it annoys me, I really enjoy the effects that it gives, but I don’t want to look like a pizza face with an even skin tone but pepperoni dots all over the place!

That’s all I had about this product, not really an angry rant, but you know, how mean can one be with something that smells nice and you reeaaally want to love, because it’s made of clouds and dreams?

I probably won’t try it out again, or so she says, and hits the cloud tub once again just to make sure. But if you’ve had positive results with this product I would love to hear about it!

Peace&Love

  1. So, wondering because I broke out on my cheek bone, did you notice any stinging or dryness? I have lately not used it in my night time routine to see if I can get better results.

    1. Hi! well, the biggest red bump stings, like a zit would when it’s ready to pop, but I did experience dryness around the nose/mouth area, but I wouldn’t blame it on the cream, because I have a tendency to get dry patches there, but not sure though. But have you tried it, and how do you experience it so far?

      1. I liked that it brightens my skin and stuff but I’ve noticed that if I wore it too much (twice daily) it makes my skin dry. I recently got a bunch of little bumps on my cheek bone so I’m wondering if it’s the cause. May stop using it for awhile to really find out. It was great for the first few days. I wonder if something like alcohol in face masks are truly the cause.

      2. The first few times I used it twice a day, and my face ended up being tight/dry, I just thought it was to little moisture and didn’t give it a second thought, but take a break for it for a little while just to see if it’s the bad guy, if not it may just be as simple as the sheet masks 😄 please let me know when you find out, would love to know!

      3. Sure thing. I have taken a break from it and sheet masks with alcohol. So I was thinking in a few days I’ll use it again and see if it’s the culprit. You’ll be the first to know my results!

      4. So yep, as it turns out the cream was the culprit. I put it on and in a few hours my face was feeling irritated so I washed it off. Sad because I liked the effects and everything else. I gave it to my sister who doesn’t have sensitive skin and says she likes it.

      5. So then kill it with fire! Or give it to someone that has less sensitive skin, so sad to hear that it didn’t work for you, it’s the kind of cream one really wants to like, so when it ends up being a culprit it’s a little extra sour than if it were just a random product. -Mocka

      6. True. Plus, I’m sure the alcohol in the face masks didn’t help. My sister seems to like it though and I think she has either normal combination skin or dry skin.

      7. Alcohol never helps, both inside and out :’D. Ah, that’s good, it’s really boring to buy a product that you really want to work, and when it doesn’t you’re just left with a jar that mocks you every time you look at it. So always a pleasure to have someone that can use it 😀

      8. Yes! It’s as essential as a good oil cleanser 😂 when I first started out I didn’t bother to check it, but you know, when you’re tired of only buying cute products that break you out, something has to be done, so now I check everything there before buying, it’s genius!
