FULL REWIEW Rating 4.5 / 5
I’ve tested & used the Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream. A truly unique Korean face cream and like nothing I have ever tried before. Here’s my review.
Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream comes in a lovely large jar made of brown glass. Screw cap in silver and nothing weird about this product which looks like any ordinary face cream at first glance. But this is in fact a very unique product of its kind, and probably not like any other face cream you’ve ever tried before. It might even take a while to understand and get used to Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream to be honest. The texture is truly unique and almost glue-like. And I don’t even know if I want to call this product a cream, it’s rather a liquid balmβ¦
If you dream of smearing your skin with creamy smooth honey then Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is the perfect cream for you.
The first thing I noticed was the glue-like viscous texture inside the jar. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream looks similar to creamy caramel sauce at first glance. Light brown / beige color in the jar. Really thick but still viscous and the product might easily run out of the jar if you tilt it. The face cream has this lovely scent towards adult chocolate pralines, the ones with liqueur inside. The scent is very unique and really gives that premium feel to the product. However, the scent is quite strong, actually a bit too heavy for my taste. Nothing for those who dislike the scented skin care. But one thing is for sure, Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is unlike any other cream I’ve ever used before!
Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is definitely not an everyday cream for beginners. This face cream is very unique indeed, with its fluid texture and sticky feel.
The feeling on the skin at application is absolutely amazing and very special. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream melts into the skin like the sweetest honey balm. My dry skin just loves this cream and soaks it right up. I would say good absorption even though the skin becomes extremely sticky immediately after application. It takes a while before most of the stickiness has disappeared and the product has been 100% fully absorbed. Nothing that bothers me though, but maybe not a face cream for skin care newbies. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream feels like honey for your soul, and the skin is thoroughly moisturized absorbing this lovely nurturing balm. Incredibly satisfying for dry skin types I must say. I would mainly describe Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream as a liquid balm, rather than a cream.
Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream has an incredibly rich and deeply nourishing formula that looks like creamy caramel sauce inside the jar.
Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is primarily a night cream that is suitable for dry and very dry flaky skin as the formula is incredibly rich and moisturizing. It literally feels like smearing your face with liquid honey, for real! Extremely sticky feel, but lovely at the same time. Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream is also suitable for sensitive skin types as the formula is calming, gentle and embracing without irritating the skin. However, the product is quite heavily scented.
A big plus for this incredibly satisfying and unique face cream that really makes a difference for dry and really dry flaky skin. Plus for the wonderful silky balm feel on the skin and the unique scent of adult chocolates. Plus for the results as the skin immediately feels deeply nourished, moisturized, smooth, soft and supple. Plus for the gentle and calming formula. The skin becomes silky smooth as velvet using the Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream. Plus also for the price range which is around 20β¬ / 50ml. Very affordable for this quality in my opinion. Minus as the scent is a bit too strong and overwhelming, especially if you’re sensitive to scented skin care. Minus as the cream can easily get messy in the jar with its sticky glue-like texture. However, this product is also available in a handy tube with a pump. Overall an incredibly nice face cream that really makes a difference to dry, really dry and sensitive skin. The smooth embracing feel is absolutely wonderful! My skin simply loves Thefaceshop The Signature Keratin Calming Cream. However, I would have rated this face cream even higher if it wasn’t this heavily scented!
