Sorry for the week long break between two reviews, but I finally had time to edit the video footage I had since it has been crazy snowing in my area. School has been excused, and now I’m back to my blog in my spare time.
Today I’m be review Amaranth’s Ultra Hydrating Cream, it’s described on it’s packaging sort of like what a face primer would do. It says it’ll help instantly retouch, smooth and revitalize your beauty performance (of the face). Sounds a lot like a primer, no?
However I’m Sherlock Doris and I have free time and I decided to find out what it really is.
I found it’s a Cosmetic company owned by Samsung, gasp! No, haha I meant what it does to your face, but in all seriousness it is owned by Samsung.
I’ve tested it two ways, before foundation (or bb cream) or together, mixed.
In between I wanted to show how I looked with just regular BB Cream on. I’ll be using Lancome’s BB cream and also Photogenic Luminesse.
To be honest it doesn’t feel like any of the primers I’ve ever used but it feels oddly similar to my starfish creams, the consistency is about the same and it feels like it instantly hydrates my face after application. In fact it’s eerily similar to the Sorabee Starfish cream I previously reviewed here.
DUN DUN DUN Sherlock Doris discovered they are managed under the same company! It’s a whole new roller coaster!
It gives off the similar floral-ish scent but I much more prefer the Ultra Hydrating Cream!
Anyways into the more important information. I’ll now show you the differences between the different ways of putting it on.
First, using it as a primer, I’ll put it on before foundation. You’ll see it mattefies my face and almost makes me a bit whiter, sort of like Missha’s MM Bloomer.
STAY ALL DAY MATTEFYING!
Next is just foundation so you can see how it is regularly.
Now to quickly compare the both side by side.
As you can see I look much more dewy with just foundation, what you can’t see is that I felt much less hydrated with foundation, I had a few flaky spots on my forehead.
So what I really want was a compromise, I wanted dewy skin that was moisturized and that helped my complexion.
Tada, I read that you didn’t just need to just use it as a base but as combination. You just mixed a equal parts of each with a brush before application. This gave me my favorite complexion! Dewy and happy skin!
Fantastic, radiant glowing skin.
Now to compare all three.
Yep, so that’s how I like it! Mixed together in application! It creates a nice hue for winter perfect skin! BYE BYE SKIN FLAKES!
Sherlock Doris out!
Unfortunately it’s not currently available online, must be a new product (much excite!) But when it’s available I’ll link it below.
I’m giving this a 8.5/10, it’s a fantastic face primer moisturizer and together it does some voodoo magic on my face!
