Which Galactomyces Is Right For You?

Galactomyces Skin Care

I have three galactomyces products in my routine. I thought I would just use them all. It’s better to use them than not use them. I really don’t like wasting skin care products. It has to be used, lol. So I started with Benton Fermentation Essence first to see if it works. Next, Purito Galacto Niacin 97 Power Essence. Lastly, Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence. I thought galactomyces gave me acne when I used it before, but it turns out that I haven’t had any new acne or clogged pores from galactomyces. I’m very happy about the outcome after trying it again. So, I’m using all three in my routine. Am I going to continue to use all three? Probably not. But each galactomyces product is very different from one another. They have differences but also similarities. I’m here to breakdown each product and compare them. The pros and cons of each. This way, you can choose which one works best for you if you’re interested in galactomyces and its benefits!! Let’s start off with the Benton Fermentation Essence! πŸ™‚

Benton Fermentation Essence:

This is the first galactomyces skin care product I reintroduced into my skin care routine. My experience with it was terrible when I used it sometime last year. I developed really bad acne. Lots of blackheads out of the blue. My skin was covered in blemishes after adding this essence into my routine. This time, nope, nothing. I haven’t experienced any breakouts or blackheads at all from this essence. AMAZING!! I’ve always wanted this essence to work due to the ingredients it contains. It has galactomyces ferment filtrate, bifida ferment lysate, ceramide, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, panthenol, sodium hyaluronate, peptide, to name a few. The texture of the essence is what gets me. It’s a liquid, but the texture and consistency of the product is soft, silky, and smooth. It just leaves the skin feeling so soft to touch. It glides over the facial skin so nicely. Feels very lightweight on the skin. It also absorbs into the skin very quick. It leaves the skin feeling pampered and more youthful-looking. This essence is definitely my favorite out of the three. πŸ₯° With all the positives, there are the negatives. The pump applicator is annoying. The pump shoots out straight, so make sure you’re aiming directly into your palm, lol. Also, it only provides lightweight temporary hydration. You’ll have to find another moisturizer to actually keep the skin moisturized.

Purito Galacto Niacin 97 Power Essence:

Here’s another galactomyces essence that is lightweight and absorbs into the skin well. You know, I wasn’t going to start using this essence again, but I didn’t want to waste it. I had a full bottle of the essence, so I thought I would use it anyways. So this essence contains 92% galactomyces ferment filtrate, 5% niacinamide (yay!), bifida ferment lysate, lactobacillus ferment, and other ingredients like arginine and adenosine, which are really good for the skin too. The ingredient list is very short and simple. You know exactly what you’re getting into. As for results, this is the only galactomyces essence that has brightened my skin (most likely from the 5% niacinamide it contains). I noticed a brightening effect in my skin very quick. My overall complexion just looked more glowy and more even toned. Even though I liked the results, I’m not sure if it’s something I want to use long term. I still have time to figure this out because I have one more bottle of this essence left. Ugh! Yeah, I purchased one too many. BUT! I shall update on my progress as I continue to use the product. Overall, it’s nice galactomyces essence that helps to brighten the skin. I didn’t have any acne breakouts from it. All is going well so far!

By the way, this essence helped to decrease the excess sebum in my skin. From experience, this essence would be more suitable for someone with oily skin, but it could work for other skin types too. Sometimes I thought it was a bit drying, but it didn’t bother me too much. It seemed to work for my skin due to the oily nature of it. It’s oily most of the time, haha.

Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence:

This is a pretty simple galactomyces essence. Just like the Purito Galacto Niacin 97 Power Essence. The ingredient list is also pretty short and simple. It contains galactomyces ferment filtrate, niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate, betaine, panthenol, to name a few. So this galactomyces essence feels lightweight on the skin. It sinks into the skin nicely and actually leaves the skin feeling moisturized. Hydration from this essence doesn’t last for long though, but it gives the skin some moisture (in an instant). With this essence, I didn’t feel or visually see improvements in my skin. It contains niacinamide, but I didn’t notice a brightening effect or a more even complexion (when compared to Purito Galacto Niacin 97 Power Essence). That was a huge disappointment. But, good news, no breakouts from this essence! Out of the three, this was my least favorite. I most likely won’t pruchase the Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence again. I think it’s too plain for me, and it didn’t do much for my skin. I already have other moisturizers that I use that does an equal or better job at keeping my skin hydrated.

That’s an update on what I think about the galactomyces skin care products I’m using. I hope this was helpful. If you missed out on my past posts on galactomyces, I’ve provided the links below. Enjoy. ✨

An Update on Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence!

I Tried Pure Horse Oil On My Face!! Goodbye Dry Skin & Wrinkles!!

Son Bahyu Pure Horse Oil

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)! πŸ˜ƒ

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! πŸ™‚

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!
