Leegeehaam Grow Vita Propolis Cream Review
Naturally, Vita Propolis ampoule and cream play well together. (And they play well with other skincare and under makeup.) But because they’re both on the pricier side–the cream is $50 for 50ml on Glow Recipe!–I usually use just one or the other for the look of smooth and glowy (but not greasy) skin. The cream’s softly scented like perfumey honey. Yum!
Calling it a cream is a bit misleading though. Boasting 50% propolis extract and 5% hippophae rhamnoides fruit extract, the cream has a thin, slightly stringy consistency (like this TonyMoly cheese cream) and is best suited as a day moisturizer for my dryish skin in the winter (should be purrfect in the summer though). It soothes skin and seems to augment/quicken the effects of other redness-reducing products in my routine (namely NIOD CAIS).
Interestingly, Glow Recipe says to apply a pea-sized amount and follow with a moisturizer. Even though everything from Leegeehaam indicates it’s a standalone cream, why not try topping with MOAR moisturizer if your skin needs that extra boost? If Kbeauty has taught me anything, it’s that skincare is about listening to your skin.
Hnnnggg, just look at this instantly gratifying glow. That “freshly skincared” look without, well, looking like the oil floating on top of pepperoni pizza, i.e., my usual freshly skincared look.
