Skincare Review: Superface Vita Capsule Scrub Cleansing Foam, Calming & Hydrating Makeup Fixing Mist, and Glow Makeup Boosting Fixing Mist

Created by TV directors, Superface is a k-beauty brand came about after being inspired by working with superstars.

I can count on one hand the number of face scrub products that I like. I just find it too severe even for my oily and non-sensitive skin so, the name of the Vita Capsule Scrub Cleansing Foam ($22) scared me a bit. Upon trying, I find that the “scrubs” are not severe at all. The product is more of a cleansing foam and cleansing scrub hybrid that contains vitamin c and e capsule to cleanse, balance, and hydrate the skin. This gently cleanses the skin and leaves it feeling supple and soft.

They also sent to face mists. The Calming & Hydrating Makeup Fixing Mist ($29) uses propolis, ceramide, and hyaluronic acid to calm, hydrate, soothe, and strengthen skin with locking makeup in place. Because of its ingredients, this helps plump and hydrate my skin.

Meanwhile, the Glow Makeup Boosting Fixing Mist ($27) has micro pearl extract, glutathione, and bladderwack extract to target dullness and drying. I like using this when my skin is looking dull and it’s a great pick-me-up in the afternoon to refresh the skin. Both product do not mattify my oily skin so I only use them to refresh or before applying makeup to give my skin additional hydration.

I find these products work well when my skin is feeling dehydrated and dull. They all provide a boost during those days when I didn’t get enough sleep or when my skin is just having a bad day.

Skincare and Makeup Review: Wander Beauty Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil, Hidden Glow Brightening Cream, and Smooth Sailing Perfecting Primer

Even if I have oily skin, I want to look dewy and glowy. I want to cover my imperfections every morning but still leave it looking bright, healthy and hydrated. Wander Beauty sent over products that might help.

Okay, I rarely say this but using the Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil ($42) was love at first application. It says it’s a face oil on the tube so, I was surprised when I pumped out the actual product because it’s so light and watery. It’s also pink and it has some glitters on it. These glitters are light-diffusing pigments blended with castor oil, black currant oil, niacinamide, and arginine to form a product that promises to brighten, moisturize, and improve the appearance of skin.

I personally don’t like using face oils however, when I put this on my face, it glided on smoothly and sunk into my skin quickly. It left my skin silky but semi-matte. The glitters were unnoticeable but it did make my skin glow. Aside from this, my skin also feels nourished and hydrated whenever I use this. I like using this before applying my makeup because it keeps my skin healthy-looking and soft.

The Hidden Glow Brightening Cream ($40) contains golden light-diffusing optics to brighten, soothe, and protect the skin, along with eon centella asiatica extract, adenosine, elderberry extract, camellia japonica flower extract, along with cranberry fruit extract, which help give skin a smoother, younger-looking appearance.

This moisturizer is a bit thick so I will have to pull this out come colder days. It does feel nourishing and it offers a slight brightening effect so those with dry or normal skin would like this.

Looking at the Smooth Sailing Perfecting Primer ($36) always makes me smile. This light gel-like primer has gold flakes in them. It contains gold, vitamin c, and vitamin e to mattify, minimize pores, and blur imperfections.

It feels a bit oily but applies matte and light on the skin. It makes applying foundation easy because it feels like silk on the skin. This is not mattifying enough for my oily skin so I always apply powder on top of my foundation to keep the oiliness at bay. It does blur imperfections a bit so, I like using this on days when I wear a light makeup but want that extra glow.

These products are indeed brightening and would be a good option if you want that extra glow to the skin. For those with oily skin, the Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil and Smooth Sailing Perfecting Primer are worth checking out. I have been using these everyday since I got it because they just provide that dewy glow I like to have when I wear my everyday makeup. All these products are also cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan, and are formulated without parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, and mineral oil.
