Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Soothing Cream and Cream Duo Review

DEAR DREAMERS
Made with pure Centella from Madagascar, the SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Cream and SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Soothing Cream are duo creams. One is used in the morning while the other is to be used at night.


I usually avoid using creams unless they’re lightweight creams like these. The weather is getting much colder and these creams came right on time. I like how they came up with two different creams for morning use and nighttime use. Can I just stop and appreciate how the soothing cream is made with 72% Centella Asiatica Extract, it’s definitely perfect for the day when your skin is exposed to pollution or when you’re dealing with mask-ne.


About Skin1004
Why the number 1004? In Korean, 1004 is pronounced as cheonsa which is a homonym for the Korean word for angel, 천사 which is also read as cheonsa.

Review: I was expecting something white in color but I was surprised to find that the cream was brown in color. It shouldn't come as a surprise if I had read the ingredients first. It was a pleasing surprise to discover that 72% of this cream was made up of Centella Extract, hence the brown color. I love how the SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Soothing Cream doesn't feel like a cream at all. It's really light on the skin and my skin is quick to absorb them. There is zero sign of stickiness, it doesn't look or feel greasy at all.

Review: Unlike the soothing cream which has no scent, the SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Cream smells fragrant but not in an artificial way. It has a natural and soothing scent. It's white in color, this cream looks more like a cream than the Soothing Cream. Similar to the soothing cream, this cream is light, non-greasy, non-sticky and is quickly absorbed by the skin. However, the difference between the two creams is that this cream is made for nighttime routines since it leaves a protective layer on top of the skin, unlike the soothing cream which leaves little to no trace of the product.

Review of Using the SKIN1004 Cream Duo
Oily, acne-prone skin types would be happy to hear that this cream duo didn't clog my oily, acne-prone skin. I've been using this cream duo for three days and still no clogged pores in sight. These creams are suitable for sensitive, acne-prone skin types which means it's also perfect for dealing with mask-ne. The weather is getting a lot colder and these lightweight creams couldn't have come at a better time. These creams are so lightweight that my skin is still clog-free despite using them with an ampoule as part of my skincare routine.
