If you’ve noticed, I like reviewing mostly products that worked for me on this blog. But sometimes, it’s also good to review products that didn’t work for me because we have different skin conditions. This Vprove rhodiola power cream is one of those products.
I received the Vprove rhodiola power cream from Jolse for review purposes just like the Diana Gen prestige cream gold caviar. Another name for it is ‘park bo gum cream’. At first, it looked promising on paper because of the description.
Temperature-overcoming cream that strengthens the skin’s natural power to prevent it from being sensitive due to big differences in indoor and outdoor temperatures.
To be honest, I consider leaving an air-conditioned room to a non air-conditioned room as a huge temperature change. Don’t judge me, Abuja weather will make you like that. So, seeing a Korean skincare cream targeted at temperature difference made me excited.
Few years ago while I was still studying in Ukraine, I had a landlady who was a dermatologist. On one of the days she visited, she saw I was breaking out and told me it was due to temperature difference in my apartment. This was during winter holiday, my room was so warm while the rest of the apartment was so cold.
I kept what she said in mind since then and also started observing my skin’s state whenever there’s a significant temperature difference around me. As usual, I consulted Google to find out what other people were saying about temperature difference and skincare.
As a doctor and an aspiring cosmetic dermatologist, I read up on the mechanism behind temperature change and effect on skin. I found that temperature change can affect the condition of one’s skin same as mood changes and change in stress levels.
Now to my thoughts and experience after testing the VPROVE Rhodiola power Cream. Remember, the aim of this face cream is to prevent or treat damage to skin as a result of temperature difference.
VPROVE Rhodiola Power Cream Review
Packaging: It came in a carton pack and a slim 35ml tube resembling a tube of topical medication. Honestly, I was a little disappointed in the packaging at first but this was only because of how much I loved the Diana Gen packaging I received before it. Since that gorgeous packaging, I now have high expectations of product packaging from other brands, someone help!
Ingredients: It has a long list of ingredients on the pack:

Effect: Well, it was my fault for expecting so much. You know what they say about high expectations. Even though my skin is in a good place now thanks to my current 2017 skincare routine, I still expected more from this cream.
This Vprove Rhodiola power cream has a medium-thick cream consistency but spreads and absorbs quickly. At first, it felt a bit sticky on application but didn’t seem to actually moisturize my skin. It absorbed almost without leaving much on the surface. I expected a thicker cream to be more moisturizing but it felt like it was just going into my skin and doing nothing all the times I applied it.
It has a strong fragrance like that of topical medications. I’m not a fan of fragrances as you already know so I hated the smell instantly. I felt like I was applying some topical medication for rashes.
Also, I noticed my face got really oily after hours of applying this Vprove Rhodiola power cream. The only times i get oily without makeup is when my skin is dry and when my skin doesn’t like a cream.
Price: It costs about 20$ for a 35ml tube which isn’t exactly affordable when compared to other brands and products in my Korean skincare products collection.
Availability: I never saw or heard about the brand or this power cream on any Korean beauty shop till Jolse advertised it. It’s currently available on Jolse and probably other select shops.
Have you used any product for temperature difference? I’m not a frequent traveler but I’m sure travel bloggers will have favorite creams fro traveling to help with temperature differences. Please share in the comment.
