What started out as a new revolutionized skincare ingredient from Korea is now one of the popular upcoming skincare ingredients in cosmetic products. First appearing as a major ingredient in one of the major BB cream brands, snail slime now has its own line of products that some women are swearing by to achieve good complexions. Using snail slime in skincare sounds really weird to me, and I’m skeptical about its efficacy. When I tried to find out, I realized that there are not many researches being done to test its efficacy, probably because it is still a relatively new skincare ingredient.
Hey ladies, do you have at least one item in your skin care stash with this instruction – shake well before use? Have you ever wondered why you need to follow the instruction and is it something that annoys you? Well, I have in my skin care stash, a number of products requiring me to “shake well before use” and these include sunscreens, skin lotions, and even eye creams. I have to admit that the instruction sort of annoys me slightly, especially if the product is housed in a smallish container that doesn’t exactly give much room for shaking…if you know what I’m talking about.
If you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you would already know I like to go into discussions about water. It’s a subject that intrigues me because I believe it has great bearings on our health and hence our skin too. In fact, I’m in the process of learning more about water and I’ll be writing a few posts about the topic in the weeks to come.

I started taking note of Methyl Sulphonyl Methane (MSM) in my skincare products when a regular reader by the name of Zinat mentioned it on the Viva Woman Facebook Page. It so happened it was one of the ingredients in The Pure Natural Skincare by the Green People Corporation I was trying out during that period. Subsequently, my interest in the ingredient was further piqued when I found it’s a key ingredient used in the OSKIA range that Bud Cosmetics brought into Singapore recently.
