Beauty blogging is something I have been doing for several years. When I first moved to Korea, I put it to the side to focus on work and settling in. Now that I feel more comfortable in the ROK, I'm going to pick back up my beauty and skincare blogging.
For my first post in quite a while, I would like to focus on a product that has absolutely reversed the dry spots on my face. It's a product with an interesting ingredients list that has moisturized my thirsty skin like nothing else.
Without further ado, click below to read more on Moksha Bidan Cream.
This product was recommended to me by a fellow Redditor and a fan of Asian Beauty products. She said it had changed her life, and I believed her. And let me tell you, I am so glad I listened.
Moksha Bidan Cream is a heavy duty moisturizer and emollient combo that locks in all of my previously applied serums and and essences and lotions. It goes on a bit greasy, but settles quickly.
Some of the noteworthy ingredients in this are aloe, glycerin, and....horse fat! You read that right, horse fat. This ingredient is becoming more and more popular as the structure chemically resembles the sebum that our skin naturally produces. This (theoretically) makes it less likely to react negatively. You can read the full ingredients list on cosDNA. Overall, it's a pretty nice ingredients list that has lots of beneficial ingredients and very few potential triggers.
This product doesn't have a major smell beside the slightly alcohol twinge it has right outside of the jar. It has a slightly woodsy note after you spread it, but it's not bothersome in the slightest. It's non-irritating and best applied at night, as it does leave your skin a bit shiny. If you apply very little, it sinks in marvelously, but I use it as the final step in a nightly routine to get all of that horsey goodness on my face.
The price point is good, and it is available from Gmarket here.
Overall, I would say that if you suffer from dry patches on your skin like I did, this would be an excellent option to hydrate. I can see myself using this well into winter, and possibly during the day when the weather starts to get dryer.
Don't be put off by the inclusion of horse fat, as this is a really solid cream that I highly recommend to many of my friends.
