Review: Primary Raw DoYou Soy Milk Facial Cream

In today's blogpost I'm going to review a facial cream of the brand Primary Raw. To be honest it's my first time trying anything of this brand, so I was really curious how it would be. I was sold by the gorgeous packaging already haha. I've been trying this facial cream for 3 weeks. If you want to know my thoughts about the cream, keep on reading!

Memebox has sent me this for review, but you can normally get it on their website memebox.com, sold for $40.- without the candle kit. Unfortunately it's currently out of stock, so you got to keep on checking to see if it's in stock again.

Primary Raw Seoul, a natural cosmetics brand promoting use of ‘primary’ and ‘raw’ ingredients straight from nature, has launched its first Do You Cream (‘Do You’ means ‘Soy Milk’ in Korean). It's enriched with soy bean extracts, soy milk ferments, rice water, galactomyces and other grain extracts. This Soy Milk Facial Cream is deeply hydrating, gentle in formula and brightens up uneven, dull complexion for a clearer and healthier glow. It's stated that it's suitable for all skin types.

Memebox has also send me the candle kit, where you can DIY the soy candle. I'm really loving the candle holder!

I'm loving the pretty packaging of the product. There is Korean as well as English descriptions on it. The jar is pretty heavy since it's made of glass, don't think it's useful to travel with it, but it's awesome that you can re-use the jar when you're done with this product. The emptied bottle can be utilized as a candle holder, candy jar or for decorative and practical use.

Use the pretty spatula that you see below and put a bit of product on your finger. Apply evenly over clean face. I usually just use this as the last step of my skincare routine, since the cream is slightly thick compared to my other skincare products. Gently pat it in until it's fully absorbed.

What a massive list OMG!
The scent is pleasant, it smells a bit like a milky soap. This scent fades away when it's on the face. The consistency of the cream is a bit in between light and medium. It leaves a fresh feeling when you apply it. It's a tiny bit sticky, but this sticky feeling will go away when the product is fully absorbed. Unfortunately, it won't absorb at once, so you got to wait for a few minutes or so until it's fully absorbed.

I'm really amazed by the pretty packaging and it's great that you can re-use the jar for other purposes. On the packaging it's stated that it's suitable for all skin types. I personally would recommend this product to people with dry, combination dry to normal skin. It makes your skin look oily over time, so I wouldn't recommend this to people with an oily skintype. Once you apply it, you will notice a healthy glow that this product gives you - a lovely brightening effect.

Since it takes some time to absorb (which is a bit too long for me in the morning, since i'm always in a hurry), I usually use this during the night time only. I like how it feels on my face, it feels fresh, keeps my skin moist, brightens and the scent of the cream smells lovely. This product just does what it says :).
