I Stopped Using Horse Cream. What Happened?

Comment
GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream

I decided to stop using horse cream this morning. This cream (GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream) has done wonders for my skin. It deeply moisturized, helped to minimize dry skin and flakes, strengthened my skin, made it look more vibrant and elastic, and simply made it look wonderous. I think it helped with fine lines and wrinkles as well! I noticed that my skin appeared more bouncy, glowy, and more plump! My skin looked softer and smoother while using this cream! I truly loved the results! All of that is great, and I wish I could continue to use the cream, but all good things must come to an end. Well, that applies to this cream. 😒 This is what happened…

After nearly 2 weeks of using this cream, I noticed clogged pores on my forehead and nose (t-zone area). I didn’t notice any breakouts anywhere else. So, they were mainly in my oily areas. I think this cream is making my skin more oily and sealing in that moisture that it’s providing including my natural sebum. Honestly, I think the problem is how this cream has too much of a silicone feel to it. It contains dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane (not once but twice!), and beeswax. Beeswax might’ve been a big issue. I don’t use any other skin care products with this ingredient (not that I know of) because it clogs my pores. It didn’t feel like the cream ever fully absorbed into my skin. It sat on my skin, so to speak. Yeah, I just took the risk and tried out the cream, lol. It also contains oils, such as Bixa Orellana Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Soybean Oil. And of course, horse fat/oil. So, it’s not a very oily skin-friendly product. Still, I went forth with the cream. hah.

So, the results were spectacular until my skin started to get bumpy. I’m just glad that the clogged pores aren’t all over my face. It’s just in a few spots. They should clear up after a few days of discontinuing the cream. Currently, since I’m not using it on my face anymore (very disappointed!!!), I’ll use the rest of the cream as an eye cream and neck cream, which was essentially what I was doing before. Wow, it was just too good to be true. 😭 Well! On to something that’s more suitable for my skin type!

GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream

My results were really good from last night. I was really ecstatic because of this. You can read more about my experience right here. So I just washed my face. My skin feels SO SOFT! I had dry skin and flakes that were easily removed due to how the cream moisturized my skin. It’s like it healed my skin from dryness. I love it! Also, I noticed that this cream prevents my sunscreen from drying my skin out or at least minimize the drying effect I get from it. My sunscreen contains mineral filters! They’re effective at protecting the skin from UVA and UVB rays, but I can’t stand the drying effect it has on my skin. It makes my skin look terrible, especially when my makeup dries my skin out too. That’s a double whammy! But this cream helps to reverse that dryness and flakiness that I experience. So, this cream did a great job at making my skin look nourished and hydrated during the day. Yay!

So, it looks like I like the cream and what it does to/for my skin. The results are very nice. But I’m just worried that it might break me out. After today, I noticed a single pimple on my forehead but that’s it. I didn’t see any other pimples anywhere. My skin is pretty much clear all over. I’m not sure if it’s from the cream or not. SO! I decided to go on and continue to use the cream. I also was able to increase my use of chemical exfoliants tonight to fight against breakouts in general plus that random pimple, haha! Since the cream is just so deeply moisturizing and nourishing. It’s such an amazing cream that seems to work. Well! I hope the pimple reduces in size tomorrow. My skin feels and looks healthy overall. It’s strengthening my moisture barrier. My face was burning a little bit from my acne treatments but not anymore. Now let’s see what’s going to happen tomorrow! Stay tuned for the next update!

GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream

So I used horse cream on my face last night. This cream right here: GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream!! I thought I would give it try and use it on my facial skin instead. When I first used the cream, I thought it was too rich, too thick, too heavy, and way too buttery for my oily, acne-prone skin. But I’ve dealing with dry, flaky skin lately. Even my Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream wasn’t helping with the dryness and flakiness. It made it very difficult to wear foundation. My skin looked worse. Every single little dryness was accentuated. I didn’t like that at all. So after a night of using this horse cream on my face, this is what happened…

In my last post on this horse cream, I mentioned that I’ve been using it as an eye cream and a neck cream only. And it’s been working amazingly for those areas. It leaves my eye area and neck feel oh-so-moisturized throughout the day. The cream has been working very well for me. Even though I like Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream, the horse cream takes it up a notch when it comes to moisture. It really, truly does replenishes the skin with a surge of moisture. My skin feels SO moisturized after adding it into my routine. So that’s one of the reasons why I decided to use it on my face. And of course, I have it, so why not just try it out!

When I was applying the cream to my face, I noticed that it has this silicone-feel to it, which was expected because the cream contains dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane (twice!), and beeswax. It’s also not an oil-free cream. Obviously. It has horse fat/horse oil in it. Besides horse oil, it contains Bixa Orellana Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Soybean Oil. With these ingredients, I was afraid that it might clog my pores. But, good news, it’s been a fortunate experience after a night of using this cream. I woke up today with skin that’s more hydrated, smoother, and softer in appearance. The difference was pretty big. My moisture barrier feels and looks so healthy! It simply works so much better compared to Eucerin! Why???????!! πŸ˜₯ I believe it’s the HORSE FAT! This stuff is amazing!

But did it clog my pores??? Dun dun dun…

Not that I know of yet. I didn’t notice any breakouts this morning. Just hydrated, smooth, soft skin that looks really healthy and moisturized. My makeup (foundation) went on better and looked better on my skin. My skin IS glowing! This is just insane how my skin looks so good just by using this cream on my face. None of my other moisturizers could do this. It also softened some fine lines and wrinkles too. WOW, I’m stunned. It’s too good to be true. I’ll make a new update soon on what’s going on. I just hope it doesn’t break me out! I just found something that improves the quality of my skin and actually moisturizes and gets rid of dry, flaky skin!

Stay tuned for my next update! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

1 Month Results SOME BY MI Niacin 30 Days Miracle Brightening Sleeping Mask!!

Some By Mi Yuja Niacin Brightening Sleeping Mask

It’s been about 1 MONTH using SOME BY MI Niacin 30 Days Miracle Brightening Sleeping Mask! Here’s my experience after using it for a month!

So I started off using the sleeping mask a few times a week at night. That’s what a sleeping mask is for. You use it a few times at night. But you can use it more often at night too if you want. Honestly, a sleeping mask from my experience feels just like any other moisturizer. Moisturizers can range from being lightweight, fast-absorbing to rich and creamy. This sleeping mask falls under the lightweight, fast-absorbing, gel-serum category. It’s so lightweight that it doesn’t even feel like a true moisturizer. More like a gel-cream-serum type of product. That works for me because I have oily skin. Heavier skin care products tend to clog my pores and make my skin appear more oily than ever! So if you have dry skin, this may or may not work for you. It feels like it would work better for someone with combination-oily skin. It absorbs the oilies on my face pretty well, but it doesn’t leave my skin feeling too tight due to the natural oiliness of my skin. I always follow-up with another moisturizing moisturizer just in case. This moisturizer isn’t that moisturizing. Technically, I use it as a gel-serum.

This sleeping mask contains beneficial skin care ingredients, such as citrus junos fruit extract (70.5%), niacinamide (5%), panthenol, and jojoba seed oil. Also, it contains peppermint, hippophae rhamnoides fruit extract, arbutin, glutathione, ascorbic acid, and biotin. This sleeping mask contains a lot of ingredients that’ll help to brighten the skin. But did it brighten my skin??? I’m intrigued by the ingredients! It looks SO GOOD!!! 😍

Alright! For the first 3 weeks, I only used it a few times a week (at night). I took it pretty slow. I didn’t know how my skin would react to the sleeping mask. I was afraid that it might break me out. It does contain jojoba seed oil. Jojoba seed oil is a hit or miss on my skin. It may or may not work. In other words, it may or may not break me out. Luckily for me, it didn’t break me out, but there’s another product that I have from SOME BY MI that destroyed my skin. Go here to read about it ~ SOME BY MI Yuja Niacin Brightening Moisture Gel Cream ~ Back to the sleeping mask! When I used the sleeping mask every day (am + pm) for a week, I noticed my overall complexion glowed! It looked brighter and more even-toned. I can’t tell if it helped to fade acne marks. Acne marks can take months to fade. It’s a long process. I’ll have to give it more time to work on acne marks. I’m hoping in the next few weeks that I’ll see some changes in my skin. Let’s just hope! lol. The same applies to dark under eye circles. The ingredients in this product look so good for dark under eye circles. I hope it’ll improve my under eyes too. But, unfortunately, there’s no effect on my freckles. It’s not like I’m trying to fade my freckles. But I just noticed that they haven’t budged, haha. I still have freckles all over my nose and cheeks. Oh well! They’re here to stay! hehe! πŸ™ƒ

With this sleeping mask, I’m just really glad that I didn’t break out from it. I’m so surprised since it’s not oil-free. Cheers to a new moisturizer in my skin care routine! Cheers to a product that contains niacinamide that works on my skin! I’ve yet found a good product that contains niacinamide that WORKS and didn’t irritate my skin! I’ve been looking forward to using this product every day. It just sinks into my skin and doesn’t leave my skin looking shiny. Great for mornings to control the oilies. It’s working so well so far! Stay tuned for my next update. Coming soon! See you all there! πŸ™‚

Review: Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream

Comment
Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream

It’s been a year without Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream. I decided to try it out again. My neck was getting super dry and itchy, and I needed something that would fix that itch real quick. I tried using CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, but it didn’t help much. I needed something more effective. So this cream is a snail-based product. Yeah, that doesn’t sound pleasant, but snail mucin has many skin care benefits like replenishing hydration levels and softens rough skin. Good for tired complexions and is suitable for all skin types but especially dehydrated skin. It not only hydrates the skin but brightens and supports healthy skin repair. Nourishes and helps to reduce redness. Also, supports skin elasticity and plumps up the skin. This cream has a pH of 5.5-6.5. Dermatologist-tested. Hypoallergenic. Paraben-free. Sulfate-free, Phthalate-free, Alcohol-free. It sounds like a miracle cream. We’ll see about that! So I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now. Here’s my experience with this cream so far!

I’ve been using this snail cream at night. I don’t use it on my face. Just my neck. It contains Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, which my skin dislikes. I get really bad closed comedones when I use products with this ingredient. I try my best to avoid it. From my prior experience with this snail cream, it did clog my pore on my face. So that’s why I’m not using it on my facial skin. Lesson learned. After a few weeks of using this cream on my neck, my skin isn’t dry anymore. I used it once and woke up the next morning with skin that’s extremely moisturized. The itchiness went away and skin just went back to normal. It made my skin feel softer and a lot smoother. This cream is working a lot better compared to my other moisturizers. It does have a sticky, slimy texture to it. It makes it hard to use the product. The product also comes in a jar, so it’s not sanitary. I make sure to wash my hands before I dip my fingers into the jar anyways. Maybe they should change the packaging of this product into a tube instead. That would make it a lot easier to use the product. Just a thought. Overall, my experience with this cream has been good. I like how it helped with skin dryness, itchiness, and just made my skin feel calm and soothes it. I love that there’s no fragrance to this cream. It doesn’t smell like anything. Amazing. Wow, I’m falling in love with this snail cream once again. It’s super effective.

βœ… Pros

❌ Cons

I didn’t think I would like this snail cream this time. But I was so happy when I noticed that the skin on my neck wasn’t itchy anymore. Also, my skin became super soft, smooth, and just so nourished. I haven’t broken out in a rash with this product. Amazing. I have a very sensitive neck, and it seems like it can only tolerate gentle facial products and not products made for the body. I like the results I’m seeing, so I’m going to continue to use this cream. I love it so far! I highly recommend trying it out if you’re interested!
