Today I have a very special review for you guys. A couple of months ago, I went to a Mylène Cosmetics workshop. I learned a lot about their products and philosophy. I also got some products, like this Magic Cream. Read this post to know more about this product!
Mylène is a brand sold in Belgium, I am not sure they do other countries as well but they work via homeparties. Mainly their products are sold directly to the customer at an event with you and your friends.
About the Magic Cream. The Magic Cream is a white moisturizer-looking cream that comes out of the black, simple tube like a moisturizer. If you put it on your hand, you’ll notice little hard bubbles in the cream. These are color caps. They give your skin a light bronzed effect, without adding coverage to your face. The cream feels very refreshing and light on the skin. I was very intrigued by this product so I had to try it out.
The product is in a very simple, black tube. I distributed the cream in little dots all over my face. As you can see, the color caps open while you put the cream all over your face. Now it is very important to distribute the little color caps all over your face while it is still wet. You are left with a slight bronzed face.
I enjoy using this product, all though I have to say I think the work flow of the color caps can be a little bit better. When they open, some bronzer is distributed on some spots but it is very hard to get it on your entire face. I have also noticed that sometimes it looks a bit too tan for my face. There is only one shade, so I do not think people with pale skin will get use out of this product. The smell is also very strong. I smelled the odor for quite a long time after finishing my make-up.
I have mixed feelings about this product. I will definitely continu using this product and maybe when I am more tan in the summer this product will come in handy on a summer party because right now, I have to make sure everything is distributed very well. Otherwise I would look like an orange. The smell is very strong and it is just not pleasant when you smell it the whole time. I am not fond of the product right now, but I will continue to use it.
