Holika Holika x Gudetama Lazy & Joy Fresh Egg Cleansing Foam
I’m obsessed with the Holika Holika x Gudetama collaboration. I love Gudetama and I love Korean cosmetics so this was the perfect pairing for me – though not so great for my bank balance.
It’s quite easy to dismiss beauty products if there is a gimmick involved and there was potential here for the products in the Lazy & Easy and Lazy & Joy lines to be subpar. Holika Holika have got it covered though and I can definitely say that the Gudetama collaboration products I’ve tried has been really great quality and very effective.
The thing I’ve been using the most lately is the Lazy & Joy Fresh Egg Cleansing Foam. It works in the same way as a lot of Asian foam based cleansers. The ingredients in this one are supposed to help brighten the skin and remove dead skin cells and excess dirt.
Egg Yolk Extract
A good emollient and moisturising ingredient for the skin due to mostly being made up of water and fats.
Is a fatty acid found in things like coconut oil and palm kernel oil. It is hydrating for the skin and can also help fight blemishes due to its anti-microbial benefits.
Glycerin is a great humectant, helping to carry ingredients onto the skin as well as attract and retain moisture.
I can’t say I have noticed a difference in the tone or brightness of my skin but it is very rare that a cleanser will have this sort of immediate effect on the skin. The cleanser does leave my skin feeling clean and soft after I’ve used it and it doesn’t give me a tight or dehydrated feeling like some cleansers can do.
The foam is a similar consistency to other foam based cleaners, it comes out of the (adorable) tube as quite a thick white cream and turns into quite a lot of foam once lathered up with water.
The smell of this product is the main reason that I have been using it so much.It’s a sweet but slightly floral/fresh smell which smells really nostalgic to me for some reason, and has been really nice to use before bed.
Good all round cleanser for those that like to cleanse with a foam. Creates a lot of light and fluffy bubbles. Subtle but sweet smell that some may enjoy. Contains various ingredients to help keep skin healthy and moisturised.
