In my August 2012 GlossyBox, I received touch in SOL Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base.
touch in SOL Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base
Where to purchase: touchinsolus.com
Price: $20 for 1.13 oz
Made in Korea
Description from the website:
* Honey texture firms and vitalizes the skin helping to promote skin's elasticity.
* Hydro Complex: hydrolyzed collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and honey Extract instantaneously works to improve discolored skin while boosting natural radiance.
* Complex of 4 Flower Extracts helps keep the skin moist while relieving irritations.
* Repair Complex CLR helps improve skin tone.
When it comes to scent, it does not smell like honey. I actually never noticed the scent. I decided to sniff the product at this moment while reviewing. It smells like lemon. While you're applying the product, you do not smell anything.
Overall, I actually like this product. First of all, it's easy to apply. You only need a nickel size amount for the whole face. I usually spread it with my middle finger and at the end, I pat it with my hand. The only issue I have is that it can be a little bit messy. When you grab honey with a spoon, it has that lingering at the end. This product does the same but not to the degree of honey. It's not much, but there's been times I see some lingering.
After you let it dry, it really protects your skin. It covered my pores especially on my nose. When I apply BB Cream, it looks nice and smooth. That's the one thing I look for in a primer. A primer that covers up my flaw skin and makes my skin look close to perfection.
The website claims that it will improve skin tone, elasticity, and improve discoloration. I cannot guarantee if that's true. For one thing, I do not wear makeup in daily basis. I only wear makeup on the weekends and when I go out. I do not wear makeup to work since all I see is walls around me. Since I don't wear makeup in daily basis, I don't know if the benefits work compared to someone who does. I do know it keeps the skin moist while relieving irritations. I have really dry skin with this weird California, winter weather. When I go to work, I notice irritation around my mouth and nose. My skin is so dry I have to keep applying moisturizer. When I wear makeup using this primer, my makeup goes on smooth and I don't feel any irritation throughout the day.
* Gorgeous packaging.
* Cool concept; honey and gold.
* Hardly notice scent.
* Application is easy and smooth.
* Dries quickly.
* Covers pores.
* Smooth canvas; easy to apply makeup.
* Keeps skin moist while relieving irritations.
* Hard to find in stores.
* Can get messy a bit.
* Smells like lemon.
Would repurchase: Yes.
