Elicina Plus

Sponsored Review
About a month ago, i received this from Renaza Lab to review. Their #2 best selling: Elicina Plus Snail Cream. (This is a improved formula on their #1 best seller Elicina Snail Cream)

Yes, you saw right. SNAIL cream!
There's this special species of snails that secrete a slime that regenerates cells, and Elicina is one of the first brands to start using snail extract.

Double sealed for hygiene purposes!

At first look, the cream looks really thick, however, here's a swatch for it. (A little goes a long way. This is enough for 2 applications on the entire face)

The cream is actually really light in texture, and absorbs into the skin quicky.

Elicina products have been designed to be as natural as possible!
  • Is comprised of 80% snail extract and 20% cream base
  • Is suitable for all skin types and all age groups
  • Contains no colorants or perfumes
  • Is hypoallergenic
  • Has no side effects
  • Is safe for children and for pregnant and nursing mothers
So here's the results!
Previously, i shared a picture of my break out from trying a new product.

A clump of pimples popped out and was really inflamed - not a nice sight, but a perfect chance for me to put Elicina Plus to the test. After about 2 weeks, this is what it became..

The inflammation went down and the scars did get lighter (I always get scars from pimples cause i like to pick at them!! Bad habit, i know).

Another good thing about Elicina is you can also use it on your body!
Directions as follows
FACE: Apply a small amount twice a day on previously cleaned skin. Afterwards moisturizer can be applied if necessary. People with greasy complexion have the option to use only Elicina since it doesn’t contain moisturizer. Due to the fact that Elicina is non-greasy and has a rapid absorbsion, people may wear make-up immediately after applying Elicina.

SKIN: Apply twice a day using a small amount. It doesn’t stain clothes nor skin in direct contact to sunlight. It doesn’t contain perfume or colorants. You’ll notice from the moment you apply on your skin a thin white film that absorbs in seconds. There is no need to massage, just apply as you would any cream and it will begin to work on your skin.

Packaging: 4/5
Simple classic packaging, which will look good on any vanity.

Scent: 4.5/5
This doesn't have any added scents either, but the cream smell is really strong. Again, unless you're sniffing it right from the source, you won't smell it when its on your face.

Effectiveness: 3.5/5
It did a good job of lightening the scars and making it less inflamed, but i felt that it clogs the pores around my nose area. Therefore, when using this, i only apply it on the affected areas.

Price: 4/5
$49 for 40ml is not cheap, especially for people around my age. However, if you have really sensitive skin and are using products from a dermatologist, you'd find that this should be a cheaper alternative. Also, apart from it, this is multi-purpose and can double as an anti-aging product.

Availablity: 5/5
The internet is your best friend. Available at http://renaza.com/, you can easily place your order there. Alternatively, you can visit their store at 181 Orchard Road, Orchard Central, #02-13 Singapore 238896

Overall: 4/5
I might repurchase it, depending on how much money i have to spend at the point of time because honestly $49 is not a small amount. Will try it on my body and see how it goes ^^.
