Just a heads up this gon’ be a beautiful post.
I decided I was done lusting after them I was going to more Primary Raw after falling in love with their 2 Step Facial Therapy sheet mask set. I started with the Soy Milk Cream since it’s only available online and if I hated it I could bring it back to my local Sephora and pick up the Azulene Gel Cream instead since it is sold currently in select locations.
This cream has a ‘gummy’ consistency that really reminds me of Joseon Dynasty Cream. So much in fact I returned it based on the fact that they are more similar in functionality and even to some extent ingredient wise. I may return to it once I run out of that but until then I’m sticking with the hanbang cream.
I also had a love/hate relationship with how the cream performed under makeup application, which was not too well. The product doesn’t product ball up often, and it only has when trying to apply foundation on top. This could have something to do with the cream having a high content of dimethicone, and could be the trigger of my recent forehead blemishes (also something that occurred with the Dynasty Cream!)
But what I loved about it are the ingredients. (Shocking)

This is a pretty impressive list of repairing ingredients for a moisturizer all incredibly effective.
There are quite a bit of ingredients in here but I love that it’s formulated with Rice Water instead of just regular ol’ water. I would definitely recommend this cream to anyone who was on the fence about it, especially if purchasing from sephora with their great return policy. It shows promise for it’s claims of achieving ‘aqua filled skin’ the ultimate goal of Korean Beauty of bright, plump, dewy, radiant skin.
DoYou Soy Milk Azulene Gel Cream found a spot in my morning routine however. Formulated with ZERO water. It uses super hydrating bamboo sap as the first ingredient. Following close behind it is Witch Hazel, great for hormonal breakouts and keeping skin clear and congestion free. Little vitamin capsules help deliver power ingredients like Niacinamide and Fermented Soy Milk to nourish and balance skin. Best part is the gel contains Azulene collected from steam distillation which is a superior anti inflammatory ingredient; to help back it up you also find Chamomile and Green Tea.
There are two areas of listed ingredients, I am unsure if one is for the gel and the other is for the vitamin capsule, or they’re both just the whole thing but one side shows more ingredients than the other?
Anyways, there are a ton of anti inflammatories in here along side anti acne and other conditioning ingredients. I’ve fallen in love with the gel cream and it’s sitting comfortable as my new daytime moisturizer.
Soy Milk Cream Rating: 9/10
