Product Review: Too Cool for School Egg Mousse Pack & Egg Mousse Soap Cleansers


      And we're back! The lighting this weekend was much better than the (nonexistent) lighting last weekend. I had this particular post scheduled which is a dual review of the egg cleansers by Too Cool for School. When I was in Korea approximately two years ago, I loved the feeling and concept of Too Cool for School. The shops were eclectic, funky, and offbeat but a good number of their products were themed around "school" (hence the name). Out of the other Korean beauty brands that have been around for ages, Too Cool for School is a fairly new brand to the kbeauty scene and thus rather hard to purchase in the states. Imagine my excitement when Sephora started carrying some of their products! Hopefully as well, their official US ecommerce site will be up and running soon as I spy an "estore" tab on their official site that states "coming soon."



Too Cool for School Egg Mousse Soap, 5.07oz
Price: $20

Description
This creamy, meringue-like cleanser combines milk proteins, amino acids, and egg extracts to thoroughly cleanse your skin. Tiny particles are able to go deep into the skin, not only to dissolve oil and dead skin cells, but also to nourish for long-lasting smoothness and hydration. Egg white extract purifies, tightens, and brightens while egg yolk extract moisturizes. Your skin is left thoroughly clean, hydrated, and glowing.

Review

      Yes, it does feel like you're cleansing with shaving cream, but no, it doesn't smell anything like eggs! The product claims to cleanse your face without stripping it, but at the same time leaves your skin feeling "tight." I was kind of wary of the latter as I don't like my face feeling super tight after cleansing. It does leave my face feeling tighter however, but not too uncomfortably so - still, it's not a cleanser that I would use everyday since it does leave my skin feeling subtly tight. In terms of smell, I don't really like it as it's a bit too strongly scented. I would have preferred either fragrance free or very lightly scented. It smells like the mini soaps that you get at hotels which isn't bad, but I feel like they were a bit heavy handed in the fragrance department. It's a very fun product to use and the cream is light fluffy and creamy. I use maybe a golf ball sized or slightly smaller amount for my entire face and it's more than enough.

Review

      Compared to the Egg Mousse Soap, the Egg Mousse Pack is supposed to be more hydrating since it contains a lot more "essence" than the Egg Mousse Soap. The directions say to use it 2-3 times a week so it's not a daily cleanser. In terms of texture when compared to the Egg Mousse Soap, the Egg Mousse Pack is much more lighter, less creamy, and more frothy. Despite the lighter texture, it still does leave my face feeling slightly tight just like the Egg Mousse Soap. It smells the same as the Egg Mousse Soap as well. Honestly, I really can't tell the difference after cleansing my skin other than the texture of the two cleansers are different.

Concluding Remarks

      Out of the two, my favorite by far is the Egg Mousse Soap cleanser. First off you get a lot more product at 5.07oz compared to 3.38oz, and it feels substantially if not the same on the skin. The Egg Mousse Pack is supposed to be more hydrating, but after using the two I really can't tell. I also prefer the thicker texture of the Egg Mousse Soap because you have more time to work it into your skin and massage it around before it loses its texture. Both cleansers are available at Sephora.
