What it is
Formulated with 9 Complex (Peppermint Extract, Apply Mint Extract, Sage Extract, Rosemary Extract, Lavender Extract, Cabbage Rose Petal Extract, Lemon Balm Leaf Extract, Chamomile Extract, Bergamot Extract) and Horse Oil from German, which helps to maintain 72 hours long lasting moisturizing effect, to improve skin resilience excellently and strengthen the skin tension with filling the moisture between the skin cells. Also containing cermamide ingredient, most similar to the human skin layer, helps to moisturize and refresh your skin by infiltrating smoothly into the skin and forming the hard moisture layer without any residue left unlike animal fat or plant oil. Main ingredient: Niacinamide, adenosine.
To repair damaged skin. Improves texture by enhances firmness of the skin. Reduce appearance of enlarged pores. Brightens the skin and construe appearance of luminous skin.
It has a buttery smooth and thick texture similar to most night cream. It has a zesty lemon scent which lingers for awhile. It doesn't have icky and oily feeling. Can be applied during the day underneath makeups.
The packaging for this cream is over the top. Even high-end skincare products can top it. It has a sturdy box that resembles Hermes packaging (talking about horse!). The box has a plastic stand. The bottle itself has gold embossed cap. It has a plastic spatula which comes really handy to scoop when you reach half of a jar. Due to its popular demand, there are a lot of counterfeit products in the market. Claire (the manufacturer) keep on revising its packaging to differentiate themselves from the fake products in the market. I will post up a guide on how to differentiate them. At the mean time, if you read Chinese/Korean, you can check out their guide from their website.
I ran a moisture test for the product after 10 minutes of applying. The result is incredibly unbelievable. The oil barrier increased 16.5% (oil barrier on top layer of the skin serves as barrier to protect your pores from bacteria infection and to preserve your skin from aging). And the moisture level improved by 36.6%
Although it has thick texture, it doesn't leave any sticky or annoyance feeling. Obvious improvements can be seen on my skin within a week. I only apply it during night. On the areas of improvements are texture - pores are minimized, fine lines - reduced drastically, brightening - skin looks more luminious. It is one of those products which can't see much difference, but once you stop using it you will find your skin deteriorating.
Controversy issues with the horse oil ingredients:
In production of this product, the manufacturer ensures that no horse are being harmed. This is because the horses are farmed and supplied by Germany, France, Kazhastan, Belgium, Italy and Quebec for its meat. Since I'm working in manufacturer environment, I understand the supply chain effects. It is indeed a good product to recommend but I limit myself to recommend this product to those who really in need of speedy repair to their skin. Currently we are still able to control the supply. If there is a drastic increase of demand for this product, the supply of the horse oil need to be increased. At that point of time, no one is able to guarantee that no horses will be harm. The sustainability of the horse oil supplies worry me. For the love of the horses, do stick to plant-based products, unless you really need this product.
