I received these in one of my Bomibags (LINK) and I have been really curious of these for a long time so finally I got to try some samples of them. I will not write a full review on them since I really don’t have the right amount of product to do a full review. I usually want at least a month per product, depending on what type of product it is.
My thoughts on The Saem Dewy Love Hydrating Emulsion
The packaging is really nice, it is a pink transparent hard plastic bottle with a lid imitating wood. My first thought was that it must be impossible to get a cream out of this bottle since the bottle is hard plastic. But the product is really easy to get out when shaking the bottle, a little.
This is a product that is really confusing for some people and not all brand has an emulsion in their skincare line.
Basically, one can say that an emulsion is a very light moisturizer containing more water than a regular moisturizer. Since an emulsion is light, it is easy to apply and absorbs quickly into your skin.
They normally come in a watery cream liquid, but they can also come in gel form or waterier.
They common emulsion has hydrating properties but they can still have other properties like brightening or enhancing the skin’s barrier.
This product is used as a moisturizing product, and for some people an emulsion is enough moisturizer. For me, this is not the case, I need tons of moisture on my skin because it is super dry and it seems that I can never get enough. After applying this, my skin feels somewhat moisturized, but the effect doesn’t last long (on me).
The skincare I learned when I was younger was, cleanse tone and moisturize, that’s it. Nothing more and nothing less. Sometimes I even skipped the toner part due to that I felt more dry (probably used toners with alcohol in. The reason for alcohol in toner was probably due to being afraid of acne and thinking that that would be the solution.. ohhh my how wrong I was.. When I grew older I started using toner without alcohol and an eye cream. The toner I sometimes skipped. This is what I think is most common in the rest of the world (except Asia that is).
