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!

Product description: This magical cream brightens skin ASAP, and the naturally brightened effect lasts up to 12 hours. With continuous usage, it also lightens dark spots, reduces redness, and diminishes freckles. The best part is, this miracle is performed by organic herbal ingredients that also restore and rejuvenate skin all day.

Cosdna

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

Hauling Donkey milk and Peachy Heaven!

Hello darlings!
So the first haul just arrived and it’s time for show and tell!

These items all came this week, so I’ve been saving them all just for this funtastic post! Beware that I’m still expecting more over the next week or two, because I might have gotten a little too eager when scrolling Reddit and Instagram, and peeked at all the amazing products everybody else has.

Anyway! Here it is!

As you can see, there are a lot of goodies here! And I just can’t wait to test them all!

Now, I must admit that some of these products I bought because of packaging, because I’m still a sucker for everything cute and pink, and when they’re dirt cheap there is no doubt in my mind that these are basically a necessity to live a happy and fulfilling life, come to think of it, I might have a little AB addiction, but who doesn’t?

 

So pictured here we have:

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Silky Dreamy Donkey Steam Cream Mask Pack: First of all, the name is ridiculously long, which is one of the reasons I bought it, secondly donkey milk! I love the idea of it, but I’m not sure how I feel about it when I put it on, dreamy donkey steam? The first thing that pops in to my head is not milk, if you get my drift!
TonyMoly Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm+Cooling Pack+Smooth Balm: This should have gotten here before easter, not realistically but imagine the amazeballs Instagram pictures I could’ve taken! I’ve heard good things about these chicken droppings and can’t wait to test them!
April Skin Pinky Piggy Carbonated Pack: I feel that this one almost speaks for itself, it’s pink, it’s carbonated and the box has a friggin pig on it, what’s not to love? After having fallen madly in love with Elizavecca’s Carbonated Mask, I really wanted to test this one out, because who doesn’t want their face being tickled by skin goodness?
Skinfood Peach Cotton Emulsion: I was lacking an emulsion, and since I’m already head over heels for the Peach Sake Pore Serum this seemed like a good match for my preference. And the bottle is pink! 💕
Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder: This just smells amazing, and it’s from the same collection as my mentioned before serum, it literally smells like peach heaven, j’adore! Have I mentioned how much I love peach? The scent, not the fruit.
Cloud9 De Blanc Whitening Cream: This I bought for the lack of a slightly heavier cream than the gel one’s I already own, I have already tried it once, and so far so good!

 

 

A’PIEU Rilakkuma Jelly Brightening Cleansing Foam: This is just the bees knees, cute little ducklings, kind to skin ingredients, and hopefully a smell that makes you think of rainbows, this I bought because it was dirt cheap and the cutest thing ever! And I really like ducklings.
Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch: This is mentioned almost as often as I experience breakouts, Holy Grail for a lot of people, so of course I had to have it as well, see what the fuss is about.
Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence: This one also is mentioned a lot, and seeing as I don’t already own an essence I saw it fit to try this one out, worst case I just pass it on to the other half of this fantastic blog!

And lastly I got my slimy snail fingers on this badboy!

Mizon AHA & BHA Daily Clean Toner: I think the toner I have works just fine, but this seemed more fitting seeing as it targets the problems I have, having tried the Cosrx power liquids (AHA & BHA) and not reacting badly to them, I thought this might work wonders!

Time will tell!

So that’s what I had for this time, also, did you see all the samples I got? I love free stuff!

So let me know guys, have you tried any of these products, and what do you think of it?

For me, the first of them will be the Cloud9 cream that looks delicious!

Not only is this little cloud easy on the eyes, but it has very little bad stuff and irritants in it!

So this cream basically ended up in my mailbox because I was searching for a little more heaviness than what I get from the gel kind I have at the moment, and I also like the sound of that brightening effect!
But going back now I realize that it actually claims to diminish freckles, who would wanna do that? Freckles are adorable! I mean, here you have this trend where young ladies actually DRAW ON freckles because of the adorableness, and now there is a cloud looking cream out there, wanting to remove them? I will never understand these trends.. on a sidenote, I do not own a single freckle, so I’ve never had the dilemma of wanting to rid myself of them.

Anyways!
This cute little tub of fluff, where to begin? I love the packaging, the detail with a sky blue jar with a layer of frosted glass on the outside, genius! And it came with a spatula, yay!

The consistency on the other hand, it’s not bad, but more like a big wtf. 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.

But don’t fear the consistency, it spreads out evenly and soaks nicely into the skin!

It absorbs fast and leaves a nice fresh floral scent, and looking at my hand now, it has gotten some of that whitening glow going on.

After trying this on my face, I can’t say that it’s a super hydrating kind of white cream that I was dreaming of, but it does have that immediate brightening effect, which isn’t bad.
This will probably be one of those products I slap on in between when I feel like I need some whitening or exorcism of non-existent freckles, who knows?

I’ll give it a go for all you lovelies,  and then have a review up in a week or 3, depending on how good me and Mr.Cloud get along!

Tomorrow I will share more of the haul items I got, can’t wait!
