I Tried Pure Horse Oil On My Face!! Goodbye Dry Skin & Wrinkles!!
So it looks like horse cream didn’t work for me. It was this one in particular — GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream. I loved how the cream transformed my skin to a dry, wrinkled, crusty mess to a highly moisturized, supple, glowing, beautiful complexion within ONE day. But after a few weeks, my skin started to retaliate against the cream. I believe it has to do with the other ingredients in the product, such as silicones, beeswax, and possibly some other oils. I’m not a huge fan of beeswax in my skin care due to my bad experience with it. It causes acne. Perhaps that was it. The cream had a silicone feel to it that I didn’t like. The combination of ingredients in the cream just wasn’t for my skin type. Now let’s move on to this new product that I have! It’s horse oil (from Son Bahyu)! 😃
So I purchased a jar of 100% pure horse oil. Yep, 100% pure horse oil! You read that right! Since I’ve been using a horse cream with horse oil in it, I’m not weirded out or grossed out by it anymore. It’s like using snail slime or any other skin care product that contains animal by-products. I think I’ve adapted to it by now. It is what it is. Plus, I had really good results from the horse cream besides the minor breakouts I got from it. I really wished the cream worked out for me, but my skin is just so complicated. It’s very particular about ingredients and the formulation of a product. Oh well. Sometimes it just doesn’t, can’t work out, and the horse cream is one of those products. *sigh*
Back to the horse oil! Why horse oil? What are the benefits? What’s so special about it? 🐎 Horse oil helps to improve skin elasticity, wrinkles, acne, eczema, sunburn, and cuts. It’s anti-inflammatory, locks in moisture, and helps to repair the skin barrier. Interesting! That sounds pretty amazing! And you know what? I noticed most of those benefits (since I don’t have every skin disorder listed) in my skin when I was using the cream. My skin looked better and more youthful. I believe it’s one of the first products I have used that moisturized and improved my skin dramatically (besides prescription creams). This cream can be purchased over-the-counter easily and it delivers results the next day! 🙂
What The Product Looks Like
The horse oil came in a 70 mL jar bottle with white, pink, brown, yellow coloring. It has a photo of a horse on the packaging. I think the design and packaging is very cute. It’s a tiny little bottle, keep that in mind. It has Japanese words on it. This is a Japanese skin care product.
When opened, this is what the actual product (oil) looks like. It’s not melted. It’s a solid oil (fat). I mean, it is horse fat after all. Horse 🐴 fat in a jar.
My Experience After Using 100% Pure Horse Oil
I started using this horse oil about a few days ago. The oil is very soft, smooth, and feels very different compared to what I’m used to using as a moisturizer. For example, my gel moisturizers, creams, and other oils. This is essentially pure horse fat I’m putting on my face. With this product, it’s absolutely not necessary to use a lot of product. I mean, the product comes in a 70 mL jar bottle. It’s a small amount of product, and it’s pretty pricey too. So you’re probably wondering, how do I apply horse oil to my face??? There are plenty of ways to do it, but this is how I do it. I take a small amount of product, rub it between the palms of my hands, and gently pat the oil into my skin. The oil should coat the skin and eventually sink into the skin as much as it can. It’s an oil, so I don’t expect it to sink in all the way but absorb into my skin over time as it’s on my skin.
This oil feels very lightweight on the skin. It’s nothing like the horse cream I used where it’s soft, creamy, and feels like silicones. The horse oil is what it is. A lightweight oil. Pure oil. It feels moisturizing on the skin without leaving the skin feeling heavy or greasy. I thought the finish of the oil looked really nice and settled on my skin quite well. It’s not dripping or melting from my face. Sits on my skin wonderfully. Gosh! I literally have HORSE FAT on my face, and it doesn’t even feel like it! 😐
As for results, after the first day of using the oil, I noticed that my skin was highly moisturized but not to the point where it looked like a greasy mess. My skin didn’t feel sticky or heavy either. The oil absorbed into my skin throughout the night without any problems. So a little goes a long way for it to be effective. So this oil does a great job at moisturizing the skin, but it feels more lightweight on the skin compared to the horse cream that I was using, which did wonders for my skin (minus the breakouts). I’m going to continue to use the horse oil and see what happens. So far, I like the way it feels on my skin. I just hope it doesn’t clog my pores. My skin doesn’t do well with oils that’s why. But we’ll see! Wish me luck! And see everyone in the next update!

Tonight’s Results From Using Horse Cream.
I Stopped Using Horse Cream. What Happened?
Review: The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
Almost all of The Ordinary skin care products I have tried failed on me. I took a chance with The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane once again. I’ve probably used this squalane oil so many times trying to make it out. The purpose of this oil is to replenish lost moisture, provide barrier support, and to maintain healthy-looking skin. It is vegan and cruelty-free. There’s only a single ingredient in this product. It is 100% Pure Plant-derived Squalane. I’ve been trying to find a lightweight moisturizer or just give my skin some hydration. I thought squalane oil could work, since it seems to work for most people. I keep hearing good things about it! Yep, trying to make it work after so many failed attempts, lol. Here are my results for the billionth time. I’m just kidding, but I’ve used it a bunch of times hoping it would work each time. Anyways, this is what happened to my skin this time.
This squalane oil comes out feeling oily. I know, that may sound obvious, since it’s an oil but not all oils feel super oily. This one does. I take about 3 drops. Sometimes more if I feel if it’s necessary. Pat it into my skin and smooth it all over my facial skin and neck. Let it absorb. Since it’s an oily oil, it takes time to absorb into the skin, but it eventually does. This oil left my skin feeling moisturized. Felt really nice on the skin. I’m glad it only contains one ingredient in it unlike the other The Ordinary skin care products. Even though I loved the way it felt on my skin, I noticed closed comedones after 2 days of using it. I didn’t want to believe it was the squalane oil but it was. I accepted it and stopped using it immediately. After discontinuing the oil, the breakouts stopped. So, using this oil was terrible for my skin from the beginning. I don’t know why I keep trying to make it work. It just doesn’t work on my skin. Maybe I’ll try another squalane oil from another brand (or not, haha). The Ordinary and me don’t go well together for some reason. It applies to this product too.
Pros & Cons
- Plant-derived squalane
- Moisturizes the skin
- Feels nice on the skin
- Breakouts, closed comedones
Another The Ordinary skin care product that doesn’t work on my skin. I really wanted it to work due to the skin dryness I’ve been dealing with from my acne treatment. But, nope, it didn’t work at all. I’m officially done with it. And I’m truly done with it this time, lol. I will probably use the rest of the oil on my body like I do with other products that don’t work on my face. I won’t repurchase after I finish it.
