I have noticed the Korean Beauty Brand Erborian popping up all over my Instagram feed recently, and as I haven't tried anything from the brand, I thought I would start with the Erborian Bamboo Glow Dewy Effect Cream, as I love anything that will help my skin look more radiant and less lacklustre.
The Erborian Bamboo Glow Dewy Effect Cream can be used as a moisturiser as well as a makeup primer, utilising ingredients which help to add hydration to the skin as well as soothe it. It contains a Bamboo Waterlock Complex, which is an invigorating combination of Bamboo Sheath Extract and Bamboo Sap, which helps the skin to retain moisture as well as adding moisture to the skin and adding a healthy glow to it. Other ingredients include Glycerin to help soothe the skin and Butylene Glycol which helps to draw in as much moisture as possible whilst smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As I briefly mentioned, I do get quite dull, lacklustre skin and due to synthetic hormones, my skin is always dry and in need of much moisture. It doesn't matter how much I exfoliate or moisturise, I still often feel my skin is a little rough. I need a moisturiser that is solely a moisturiser, and so I haven't used this as a stand-alone moisturiser, but instead, used it as a primer. It has a lovely cream-gel texture that feels very refreshing on the skin immediately after application and it definitely helps to give my skin a little added moisture.
Whilst using this as a primer, I have noticed that my skin is definitely healthier, and not as dry, and because it has that added moisture, my skin does have a slight glow to it compared to before I started using it. With regards to whether or not it acts as a primer to cover large pores, and keep makeup in place all day without budging a millimetre, then I would say there are definitely more specified products out there for that, but in terms of having healthier skin and a sweet glow, this is definitely a winner for me. Plus, I love the Summery packaging!
The Erborian Bamboo Glow Dewy Effect Cream retails at £21.00 for 30ml and you can find it online at Feel Unique here.
All the Loves,
