Hey guys! I have a new review for you, it’s the 9 Wishes Vanishing Balm. This is a tone up cream. The tone up cream has been a popular beauty product in Korea. This kind of cream provides instant whitening of the skin. Not like a BB or CC cream, but just a plain white color. I’ve tried other tone up creams and I’ve hated them! They gave me an awful white cast ad it clung to all my dry patches. It was a total flop for me. So when the K-Beauty Expo sent this product in the review bag I already had my opinions about it. Let’s get on with the review!
Packaging and Texture/Finish
The packaging is a white plastic tube with a pump attached. It contains 50ml/1.75fl oz of product. The texture is like watery cream. When you go to rub it turns into a milky liquid. It absorbs quickly and the white pigment sticks to the skin well. It moisturizes without any sticky or greasy feeling. The skin looks lighter, ‘toned up’, and the skin looks like it has a soft focus. A slightly powdered appearance.
The cream does have a brightening and anti-wrinkle effects. It is formulated with a skin brightening complex, Botaniceutical Plus-10. A mix of natural extracts used in Korean Herbal medicine. It does contain titanium dioxide, so it is a sun protectant too. It also uses sea water which is rich in minerals. The Niacinamide and glutathione helps with whitening and brightening of the skin. There is no added fragrance so that is great!
I was actually quite impressed by this cream compared to the other tone up creams I’ve tried. It applies nicely and the white cast isn’t terrible. It’s good for those days I don’t want to wear makeup. I like the blurring effect as well, it makes it look like my skin. I’m not sure how it will look on darker skins though. I wouldn’t purchase this with my own money, I just don’t use it enough. I’m just not a big fan of these tone up creams. I will end my review saying that if you want to try a tone up cream I would recommend this one. They do have an original and glow versions. This is 44,000KRW (pricy!) and you can get this on the online mall, http://9wishes.co.kr.
