There are two kinds of recommendations that we live for (and we know you do too) – a good skincare product and a Netflix show to binge on. I am mean who doesn’t want to save themselves some money and screen time by only trying the best things in this one life that we have.
So while your Netflix homepage is recommending you what show to watch next, we are here to recommend you skincare products sourced straight from actual users who have tried and tested these products for long, have come to love it and can’t stop raving about it (literally).
Disclaimer: Beauty really comes down to personal choices, so if a certain product mentioned below hasn’t worked for you do let us know in the comments below. We are always looking to learn.
Top 4 Skincare Products That Its Users Say Are Life Changing
1. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
User – Maimoonah (moonymadness07)
Why I recommend it: I remember seeing this product floating literally EVERYWHERE once upon a time. My favourite skin-fluencers were constantly raving about it. Facebook showed ads because they loved to spy me. And just in general, the snail mucin was everywhere I turned my eye to.
Long story short, I had a case of the FOMO (fear of missing out), and the next time I saw it in stock, I bought it, despite cries from my bank account desperately asking me to slow down.
And let me tell you – holy 💩.. I saw results within 2 days, no lie. When I started to use this, I had a lot of redness and inflammation (thanks, acne), and the Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence managed to calm it down almost instantly! Basically, it works great on flare-ups!
I apply this essence on damp skin, just like how you would apply your hyaluronic acid products, and let it sink in before sealing it with maybe another serum and a moisturiser.
And dude. My skin was THANKING me. It was hydrated, it felt so soothing, and it wasn’t heavy or greasy on the skin at all. Never has a product become an integral part of my routine so fast. *snaps finger*
What I’m trying to say is, you are truly missing out. And if I were to recommend ONE product to anyone dealing with redness/inflammation/dry and dehydrated skin, it would be this.
User – Karishma (reviewnregimebyk)
Why I recommend it: Cosrx is a Korean beauty brand meaning ‘Cos-cosmetics Rx-prescription’.It’s a really affordable brand with quality products. The Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is made with snail mucin, however, do note that no snails are not harmed during collection of the mucin.
I love the texture of this product. It’s slimy and gets absorbed easily into the skin.
Below are some of the reasons why I would recommend it to you:
🐌 Ingredients – The mucin has hyaluronic acid mostly which is 96% along with other hydrating ingredients.No nonsense ingredients are used.
🐌 Multipurpose – Can be used in place of toner in your routine. Works great when applied on damp skin.
🐌 Inclusive – It is suitable for all skin types. A few people, however, couldn’t use it because of allergies to snail mucin or dust; even though I am allergic to dust I didn’t encounter any reactions.
🐌 My experience – It gives a sheen to the skin. It helps in smoothening the texture of the skin and gives a glass finish. It also helped me with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation meaning it assisted in fading away blemishes post-acne. I have been using it for a few months now it takes time to show results, I definitely can see the sheen, glow and it makes the skin feel very hydrated.
2. It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Serum
User – Srishti (glowtok)
Why I recommend it: It’s the most affordable hyaluronic acid serum that I’ve found till date. Free from any toxic ingredients, this serum comes in a glass bottle and the pump dispenser that just makes using this very hygienic. Faintly fragrant, the lightweight serum provides instant hydration and leaves my skin feeling baby soft. I genuinely felt an upgrade in my skin texture with just one use. When I miss a few applications my skin goes back to being not as dewy and plump as opposed to when I use it regularly. It pairs well with all my skincare and makeup and never has it pilled! Perfect for all skin types. I have been using it since 2017 and three years later, I still use this regularly because it’s honestly the best hyaluronic acid serum you’ve got out there. Quick tip – avoid if you’re sensitive to fragrance.
3. Nivea Milk Delights Face Wash
User – Sakshi (sakshi612)
Why I recommend it: What I love about the product is how light it is and how good it feels on the skin. It instantly refreshes and moisturizes the skin. I don’t even have to use a face cream after it most of the time. It also has little granules in it which gently scrub the dirt away from the skin.
4. L’occitane Almond Delicious Hands and Nail Cream
User – Srishti (glowtok)
Why I recommend it: It’s only during the lockdown, I’ve come to realise that this iconic L’occitane hand cream is a life saviour. With frequent washing of hands, using alcohol spirits, no salon manis and tackling the winter, I’ve run out of four whole tubes of the L’occitane Almond Delicious Hands and Nail Care this year. You’d always find them on me, I’ve got one in the bag, one in the car and one bedside.
Formulated with vitamin E rich almond oil, softening almond milk and smoothing almond proteins, it’s the ultimate nourishing cream for dry, flaky hands. It seeps into my skin effortlessly and the harmonious scent lingers around a while.
The best thing about this L’occitane bestseller is that it doesn’t feel sticky and you’re hands are grease-free so don’t they don’t leave an imprint on things you touch after application.
Days I’m relaxing, I dab some onto the cuticles and massage them in gently! I find with regular use, it improves the way your skin looks and feels, and also adds that healthy shine to your nails.
It works on repairing my skin instantly leaving me with silky smooth hands! Since it has never failed me as a replenishing hand moisturiser and doubles up as a cuticle cream, I literally can’t keep my hands off this!
