When I was asked if I wanted to review some Skederm products, I must admit that I wasn’t really super excited about it because I had never heard of this brand before. But I’m glad I decided to give it a shot because I fell in love with the Skederm Snail Jelly Mask! 😍
Water, Snail Secretion Filtrate, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract , Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Cimicifuga Racemosa Root Extract, Polygonum, Multiflorum Root Extract, Phellinus Linteus Extract, Angelica Gigas Root Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Paeonia Lactiflora Root Extract, Sophora Angustifolia Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Citric Acid, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Glycerin
POWER OF SNAILS – the secretion filtrate extracted from snails is actually filled with incredible nutrients to keep your skin fresh and hydrated. The properties in snail secretion filtrate (SSF) have been shown to help with anti-aging, tissue repair, acne, rosacea, scars, and even razor bumps. Furthermore, SSF is comprised of approximately 91-98% water so it can definitely be used for any dry skin issues.
REGENERATES AND HYDRATES – SSF is packed with regenerative ingredients to repair the skin and keep in moisture. The powerful ingredients contained within SSF include hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, collagen, elastin, and other nutrients beneficial for the skin. SSF also contains vitamins A, C, and E which have always been popular for repairing and balancing skin tone.
WHY HYDROGEL? – Hydrogel is a material that can contain over 90% water, hence the name. It is a popular ingredient in skincare products due to its water retaining abilities and its similarities to natural tissue which makes it an excellent delivery system for skin. The material is used in a variety of applications including skincare, regenerative medicine, and emergency care.
NATURAL INGREDIENTS – In addition to snail secretion filtrate, we also added natural ingredients such as sesame seed extract, licorice root extract, rosemary leaf extract, chamomile flower extract, and many more. We strive to find the safest ingredients that can improve the physical and aesthetic quality of a person’s skin, and almost always those come from Mother Nature.
The above is their official description from Amazon. Here’s what I have to add – I love snail products. Snail mucin has healing properties, and since I discovered snail, I’ve been singing its praises and have even convinced a lot of friends to start using it, too. So when I first saw the packaging with the super cute snail in purple, my favourite colour, I was excited to try it.
I wasn’t sure what to expect of a “jelly” mask – turns out it’s jelly combined with a sheet-like fabric to form a hydrogel-coated mask. So it’s more than a typical sheet mask, but not quite the typical hydrogel.
The mask has a pretty good fit and covers my big face quite well. 😁 It has a pleasant fragrance and is overall pleasing to use.
I didn’t really expect much of it, but to my surprise, it was very hydrating and surprisingly brightening too. I hadn’t read all the ingredients and didn’t realize that it had licorice root, an ingredient which is known for brightening properties. My face was glowy until the morning after.
So it’s healing, hydrating, and brightening at once.
I’m in love with this mask! 😍
So obviously, I had to purchase it immediately, so I asked if they happened to have any discount for it and they gave me a 50% discount code which you can use, too – just key in SKEDMASK at this Amazon link or click below:
The other product that I got to try is the Skederm Rooibos Tea Cleanser. Now, green tea is a common skincare ingredient, but this is the first time I’ve heard of Rooibos tea in beauty products.
Water, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Leaf, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract
WHAT IS ROOIBOS TEA? – You’ve probably heard of rooibos tea, also known as Red Bush, which is a distinct beverage popular in South Africa. The tea has a high antioxidant content and is completely caffeine free, with a woody-sweet, nutty flavor. The tea comes from the rooibos plant, which is known particularly for its anti-allergy and respiratory benefits. This plant also has natural compounds that encourages healthy skin.
BENEFIT TO THE SKIN? – Because of its high flavonoid content, rooibos is a powerful anti-aging ingredient for skin care formulas. Since much of skin aging is caused by environmental stressors, rooibos uses various vitamins (such as D) and minerals (such as zinc) to help protect skin and support a more youthful look. Rooibos is also known to be helpful for sensitive skin because of its soothing properties and to not cause reactions on skin.
TRUSTWORTHY NATURAL INGREDIENT ALL IN ONE – In addition to Rooibos, we also added natural extract ingredients such as licorice root, rosemary leaf, chamomile flower, damask rose, jasmine, calendula, eucalyptus, chamomile, lavender, and many more. We strive to find the safest ingredients that can improve the physical and aesthetic quality of a person’s skin, and almost always those come from Mother Nature.
TEA POWER FORMULA? – Our Rooibos Tea cleanser uses a special scrub & micro activating gel. The scrub itself is made with real organic rooibos tea leaves, which creates a mild exfoliation to gently remove keratin skin and supply nutrition and moisture which can help normalize disrupted skin. Because of the micro activating gel, our cleanser can reach deeper and remove more pore impurities compared with other ordinary foam cleansers.
DELICATE BUT POWERFUL – It is perfect for all skin types including sensitive skin. But do not underestimate the delicate mild scrub ingredients; it is also ideal for removing make-up residue, sebum, skin waste, hazardous substances, old keratin, and etc., allowing your skin to revitalize and create an illuminating glow.
Just like the snail mask, this is packaged beautifully. It’s almost a shame to throw away that box!
Skederm Rooibos Tea Cleanser is a unique formula of 100% real rooibos tea leaves and other natural flower extracts encapsulated in a micro-activating gel to give you the deepest clean and rid all impurities. You can see specks of tea leaves and flowers in the gel.
Unlike most cleansers which are usually wet and runny, this one comes in gel form which I think would make it easier to bring for travel. It dissolves into foam once it comes into contact with water, though, so it’s easy to use for cleansing.
It has a strong scent of roses which I love – it’s the smell that I wish a certain other rose cleanser had. So I love it because I love roses, but you may want to steer clear of it if you are sensitive to fragrance.
I quite like it – my face feels smooth and moisturized after I use it. I can’t find anything I don’t like it about it – but I won’t go so far as to say that it’s HG. You can also buy it on Amazon below.
