Guys this stuff is legit! I was skeptical to buy this product at first because I experienced some really bad drying of the skin from neutrogena's other acne products.....especially their grapefruit face wash. That stuff burned! ❌❌❌❌
If you stick to this product, make sure you use it twice a day. I'm sure you'll see results. Before heading to college my skin was breaking out hard, I had so many pimples. Even in highschool, my face was constantly breaking out, no matter how well I took care of my skin!
After using this product for about 2 weeks I already saw a drastic change. My skin is literally the smoothest it's been in years! I recommended it to my acne heavy prone, even more sensitive skin and it did wonders for her too.
For reference my skin is normal to combo~
Please try this product out if you can, I never thought I could trust a acne product again, this has restored my faith!
Alright I've been eyeing this product for so long now and I finally got my hands on it 3 days ago!
Now I was a bit surprised at the amount of product....it just seemed a bit smaller. However a little seems to go a long way. I used about 1 1/2 pumps and lightly massage it, then tap it to help absorption. This stuff sinks in very quickly too and it honestly doesn't feel slimy at all.
If you have any broken skin it can burn for a couple seconds (my experience) and it's actually recommended not to use....however I have been doing it anyway and haven't really noticed a problem.
I've used it 7 times now (day and night) and I can already tell there's fading in my pimple scars (they are not just new scars too!) After the very first night I used it I could see some slight fading in some of my lighter scars. I also woke up to some serious dewy looking face. My skin types usually normal to somewhat combo and it's been looking a bit dull. After one night of this essence my skin looked much more alive.
I will say that the dewy look it brings can be seen as somewhat....oily too. But to each their own~ my skin also feels more softer and bouncy.
I've recently been getting one or two pimples non-stop around my cheeks and chin and while it doesn't seem to be necessarily helping them (as of yet atleast), this essence also hasn't broken me out.
DISCLAIMER: I have heard that snail skincare products can have negative effects on those that have very oily, acne prone skin (people have complained they broke out even more) but I've also heard the opposite and that it's quite beneficial to oily skin.
My advice, if you have oily skin and you want to try this product, definitely test it out on a small area first, whether you have acne or not. And actually that goes for anyone who wants to use this!
Overall snail mucin is known to help regenerate cells and ultimately keep skin elasticity. Essence itself works on a cellular level so out these two together and you get a pretty effective product! In just 3 days I see such a big difference!
Okay I had pretty high expectations going into this foundation, but at the end of the day....I was very disappointed. My skin is pretty normal to sometimes combo depending on the weather, but it's never fully dry or oily. Also, while I don't have full on acne I do get pimples periodically.
PROs: The packaging is so convenient, I love that there's a pump which makes life alot more easier. The coverage is one of the highest I've seen in foundations, it really is a 2 in 1.
That's about where the good ends....
The foundation is incredibly thick (which I personally don't prefer) and it feels quite heavy on the face. When I initially blend it out the thick consistency sits on the very top of my skin so it feels like my skin can't breathe. After a while it settles in and looks more natural (which was actually quite nice) however it quickly settles into ever fine line and crease (eyes, mouth...even the bridge of my nose....now foundations do tend to crease in my laugh lines but never under my eyes and nose)
After 4 hours or so I notice my face looks very oily (way more than my skin ever is) all over my face (not just the T-zone). Throughout the day I honestly feel quite gross wearing this foundation too, due to its heavy texture.
I will say that I have not tried this foundation by setting it so maybe that may help control the oil and perhaps even the creasing....however unless you don't mind the heavy feeling I highly don't recommend this product.
