To that my reply was “okay, sure….”, and of course I proceeded to not listen to what sounds like a huge gimmick/trend.
I have tried countless anti-aging skincare lotions and creams. Some because I read a review. Some because my friend who sold guilted me into it.
I am an IPSY subscriber and recently changed my settings to get more skincare type products. The other stuff they were sending was great, but truly I only need so many lip stains and eyebrow kits a year.
Anyways, in my last IPSY glam bag, one of the products I received was this tiny little snail shaped container with anti aging lotion in it. It was way cute. In IPSY fashion, they didn’t super describe the product, but I knew it went on my face. So, I just started blindly slapping it on just like everything else they send me.
About 3-4 days later I started noticing an amazing change in my skin. I am a normal skin type who has a TERRIBLE history of sun damage. Firstly, my skin just feels incredibly soft and even, with no blemishes at all. Second, all my crazy fine lines seemed to be looking slightly improved after only a few days of use. My skin feels incredibly hydrated.. and I work outside in the sun most of the time and really never get this feeling.
To my surprise, it is a Korean product, so apparently I was jumping on that bandwagon. The BIGGER surprise is what it is made out of… snail secretion. That’s right, I had unknowingly been smothering my face in slug slime and loving every minute of it!! The lotion is very smooth and cooling, so please don’t let my dramatization scare you.
At this point, I figured I was past being grossed out because it was working for me and I really liked it that much. I jumped on Amazon and found the maker Ladykin easily and grabbed myself an order that would last:
It came with some samples that I was admittedly excited to try out too. For $18 it is a HUGE jar of lotion… nothing like those tiny little department store containers.
Now that I have more I have been using it on my neck and hands too, and I truly can’t stop raving about how great it feels. I told my husband he should try it, to which he rolled his eyes, but he has also been complaining about how old he feels lately, so many he will get on the bandwagon with me sooner than later 🙂
I should use the disclaimer that I am of course not paid by Ladykin or IPSY, I am just sharing something I found and am loving 🙂 The Amazon link should bring you to where I purchased my set if you want to give it a try!
