touch in SOL Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base

In my August 2012 GlossyBox, I received touch in SOL Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base.
Product Review: touch in SOL Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base

Where to purchase:
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.
Thoughts: My initial reaction was the overall packaging was gorgeous. By the way, I have a sample size of 1.06 fl oz. Now that I looked at the website, the product in itself is gorgeous. It comes with some kind of application from the looks of the picture.
Doesn't it really look like honey? It feels like honey too which I will go into later.
Here's a closer look at the product. If you look closely, you can see little specks. It's specks of gold.

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.
The product I received came in a tube. It's just sanitary safe. I'm not too sure about the real size product. It looks like there's something inside the container. I'm not too sure what type of application they have inside.
Here's a close-up of the product. It's a clear with a tint of honey color and specks of gold. When you apply the product, it goes on smoothly. You will not notice the specks of honey on your face. It's really smooth and sinks into your skin.

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.

Interesting product! I've never seen a primer that was clear - usually the ones I'm familiar with are more of a milky/moisturiser-type consistency. Glad to hear that it works well in providing a smooth canvas for makeup to go on :)

A primer like a gel, an interesting and diferent concept I never see this product before but looks really interesting1 Many thanks for this review!

You're right! I didn't even realize it until you mentioned it... hehe~ I have never seen a clear primer.

Ahleessa said...

You're welcome! I never realized the consistency of this product was so unique... hehe~

Hahaha. If you're in LA, you should try visiting barrio fiesta or max's fried chicken in the glendale area. The photo of the dish I ate was in downtown LA and its a rather small and cheap ass resto. It's Mama's eatery or something. Its right next to a parking lot and its so tiny. Its fairly new and the people who recommended it to me work within that area.

I haven't heard of this product before but I like the look of its consistency and texture! Glad that it worked well on you as a primer :)

Ahleessa said...

I had to look on yelp. Max's Restaurant of Manila, I think that's the one you're talking about, received better reviews than Barrio Fiesta. I'll have to check that place out. Thank you for your suggestion since Glendale is closer to me than downtown LA... hehe~

Ahleessa said...

Thank you!

Ahleessa said...

I thought we've talked about this many times. :/ I'm located in So. Cali. I live close to Glendale.

Jamie Panganiban said...

Oh, I think I remember now. I'm sorry, hahaha I'm so forgetful. The husband reminds me all the time to pay attention. I really do listen, but oftentimes I forget and I sometimes hate it. Especially with names, its embarrassing. Again, I apologize.

Ahleessa said...

Oh, no worries... hehe~ I tend to remember the weirdest thing. When it comes to important things like people's names, I forget. :X
