First impression: Skinfood’s Aloe Watery Sun Water gel

Hey guys!

It’s time to give you my first impression on a product I’ve been looking forward to recieving for a few weeks now. I’m talking about the Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel from Skinfood! The first time I ever tried this was maybe a month ago. I randomly went through my samples, which I have collected through the course of over a year, and found a sample of this sunscreen from Skinfood. I was happy with the sunscreen I was currently using (from Missha), but I went ahead and gave the Skinfood sample a go. And it left my head spinning!
I instantly LOVED the scent (which is slightly hard to describe), my skin seemed to like the feeling of it AND CosDna didn’t really flag a lot of acne triggers og irritants in general. In fact, according to CosDna my beloved Missha sunscreen contains a bit more of the bad stuff. Needless to say; the Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel from Skinfood quickly wound up in my cart! So keep on reading of you want to know how I feel about this product after
wearing it out in the sun today   🙂


The basics   ↓

Product type: Sunscreen
Purpose: Protect skin from the sun
SPF: 50+ PA+++

More details   ↓
Colour: White
Scent: Not quite sure, but it’s kinda fruity and very fresh.
Consistency: Rather thin and a bit runny. Easily spreads out.
Appearance on the skin: After application you’re left with a satin to dewy finish.
Feeling on the skin: Feels nice and comfortable on the skin. Not oily or sticky.
Container: Green and off-white tube made of plastic.
Packaging: The product came without a box, but was sealed with plastic.


After only trying Skinfood’s Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel twice (the sample a few weeks ago + today), I must say that I so far really like it. I mean, of course it will take a couple of weeks before I can come back with a final verdict, but I’m rather optimistic as of now. This sunscreen is lightweight and fresh, and it smells sooo good. Also, it spreads out nicely and doesn’t leave a white cast. The skin looks healthy and fresh, as opposed to greasy or on the flipside: dull. Result. When it comes to getting along with my skin for more than one day, we’ll have to see if this sunny relationship will last!


As with any product I try, I’ll be back with a full review after putting this sunscreen to the test for a couple of weeks. So stay tuned!

First impression: Leejiham’s Tea Tree 90 Essence


Hey guys!

The time has come to share my thoughts on my very first (and probably not last) Leejiham product. I’m talking about their Tea Tree 90 Essence! So here’s my first impression on the product. Enjoy!


The basics   ↓
Product type: Essence/serum
Purpose: Hydrate, balance, soothe blemishes and brighten skin

More details   ↓
Colour: Clear
Scent: Tea tree, but VERY little.
Consistency: Very thin, almost like water. Also a bit runny prior to spreading, and slightly sticky, but only a bit.
Appearance on the skin: After absorbation you can’t even tell that you’ve applied the product.
Feeling on the skin: Very nice. Absorbs fast and leaves skin feeling fresh.
Container: Appears to be made of frozen glass. Clean and simple design.
Dispenser: Dropper. Very hygenic.
Packaging: Clean and simple looking cardboard box 🙂

As you can tell from the photo, the product is runny at first, but after only a few seconds it absorbs like a dream!

I must say I have high hopes for this essence. But keep in mind, that’s after only trying it once. I love the fact that it contains 90% tea tree extract, keeping it nice and natural! I’ve heard so many great things about both tea tree itself and this essence in particular. Tea tree is known for being soothing and having skin clearing/anti-trouble properties, and I know that the Leejiham Tea Tree 90 Essence is a Holy Grail product for many people with troubled skin, like myself. Of course one can never be sure after only one application (and a fair bit of research), but I really think this product could be a winner!


As usual I will be back with a full review after putting this essence to the test for a couple of weeks. So stay tuned.
