Evangelist releases Loose Powder Skincare–high EGF%! October 2, 2011





Evangelist BB Cream was a huge hit in Japan last year – it ranked No.1 in Japan’s most prestigious beauty website – – for months and still is the no.1 BB Cream at Cosme.



The popularity of the BB Cream was mainly due to it’s high % of EGF, hyaluronic acid and placenta extracts. As we all know, EGF and Placenta are very expensive cosmetic ingredients so they are always the last few ingredients on the list! However, in the Evangelist BB Cream, the concentration is rather high up :



Cyclopentasiloxane, Water, Titanium Dioxide, Dimethicone, PEG-10 dimethicone, polymethyl methacrylate, ethylhexyl methoxy cinnamic acid, polyglyceryl-2 isostearate, t-butyl methoxy dibenzoylmethane, Mg sulfate, aluminum Jimo Tearu distillers hectorite, BG, glycerin, AI hydroxide, human oligo-peptide-1, placenta extract, soluble collagen, ceramide 1, ceramide 3, ceramide 6II, squalane, macadamia nut oil, talc, microcrystalline wax, paraffin, stearic acid, candelilla wax, zirconium oxide, tocopherol, Na lauroyl lactic acid, mannitol, phytosphingosine, cholesterol, xanthan gum, carbomer, iron oxide, diisostearyl malic acid, methylparaben, propylparaben




The brand is developed by a famous Japanese makeup artist called Nobuto Yanagi. It gives a ‘3D’ effect  and formulated with micro fine powder to conceal your skin’s imperfections. The BB Cream comes in 3 shades!



Ok, back to the newly released Evangelist Loose Powder – the packaging is gorgeous and the % of EGF , Hyaluronic Acid and Placenta is also really high up here – at position no 2,3,4 on the list! The powder comes in two versions : Neutral and Aurora Shine ( contains bling bling! )


ethyl methoxy cinnamic acid, placenta extract, human oligopeptide -1, Na Hyaluronate, Squalane, Dimethicone, Water, BG, tocopherol, glycerin, soybean oil, Na phosphate, lecithin, ethanol, butyl paraben, methyl , (HDI / trimethylol hexyl lactone) cross polymer, mica, silica, talc, silylated silica, stearic acid, titanium dioxide, AI hydroxide, iron oxide




SK-II launches Men’s line






Finally… SK-II will be releasing a men’s line ! Meet the SK-II MEN which will launch with 3 products at the moment :

1. SK-II Men Moisturizing Cleanser

2. SK-II Men Facial Treatment Essence

3. SK-II Men Age Revitalize Moisturizer



No idea if the Facial Treatment Essence for men will be any difference with the normal one, but the packaging is definitely nicer! The redness also gives a very nice touch to it.



The SK-II Men Facial Treatment Essence promises :

In 1 Day – Skin is immediately moisturized and feels refreshed

In 3 Days – Skin becomes significantly more moisturized

In 7 Days – Skin becomes less oily with significant reduction in sebum secretion levels

In 14 Days – Skin tone becomes brighter



Never saw the need for SK-II to be releasing a ‘men’s version’ – but this product is probably the same thing as the normal version other than just to feed their machoism.
