Nlighten Korean Products Review


 When I was asked to do a product review for my blog, I hesitated a bit due to my busy schedule. But when I heard these were premium Korean products, I knew I had to try them. Nlighten is a Korean brand distributed by NWorld and was launched around August, 2015.

 Koreans are known for creating amazing, quality beauty products, hence, when I was informed that I would be receiving 4 products, it made me feel like Christmas. I tested all 4 items for a week. For the face: Nlighten Cloud Cream, Nlighten O2 Bubble Cleanser and Nlighten CC Cushion. For the body, it's Nlighten Body Cream. 

Some notes to know before proceeding: 
I have acidic skin
 I used them for 7 days in a tropical country with high levels of humidity
I used MAC NC30 pressed powder on top of the CC Cushion
I stopped using my other beauty products for a week to give way to these items
After the O2 Bubble Cleanser, I used L'Oreal facial wash out of habit
Before I used all products, we had a swimming excursion in Los Banos Laguna so I was bit darker
This is going to be a short, quick review of each product

With that out of the way, here are my findings, hope this helps :)

Left side: with CC cushion, 
Right: bare face. White cast galore. 
Left side: with CC cushion
 Right: bare face but both with MAC NC30 pressed powder. 
As you can see, adding a bit of pressed powder evens the CC cushion a bit. 
Full face with CC cushion + MAC NC30 pressed powder taken after 30 mins when the products have settled a bit. 
There's still a bit of white cast, but it's not as harsh as the first application.

Overall: The items are a bit pricier than your average Korean beauty products, but the packaging and quality make up for it. Would I purchase them in the future? Maybe the Body Cream and the O2 Bubble Cleanser. I'm very particular when it comes to make-up so the CC Cushion isn't for me. Maybe if they have a bigger range of shades that could accommodate darker, Filipina skin? All in all, these are good products and if you're an adventurous shopper with cash to spare, you should definitely try them.
