Eco Elicina & Elicina XT Eye Contour Cream
Women will go to great lengths to make themselves beautiful. There is almost nothing will not do to make ourselves look better, especially as the ravages of time start to take over and make themselves more noticeable on our faces. As soon as we see wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, laxity in the skin or dullness in the face you can bet we are on the internet looking for the latest and greatest invention to give us better skin.
In South Korea they are on the cutting edge of skincare. Which is why their skincare is so popular here. They have the best products and the best regimens. In South Korea they take skincare very seriously over there. A few years ago snail mucus made its way into skincare and became very popular. Yes, I know it sounds unusual but it actually works on wrinkles, skin firmness, age spots, unbecoming freckles, expression lines, scars (even keloid scars), acne marks, rosacea and stretch marks. Which is why it has now made its way to the United States. I tried two of the products and below you will hear about my review of them.
Snail mucus is not how it sounds. They don't just take it directly from the snail and put it into the product. It is purified and processed and then emulsified into creams. It is surprising that this ingredient would work so well on the skin but then again, so many ingredients that you would not think do work in skincare actually work very well. I am not opposed to do this. I just want to make sure no animal is harmed.
I received two products to try, Eco Elicina Snail Mucus Cream for the Face and Eco Elicina XT Eye Contour Cream. That is where the snail mucus really shines is around the eyes. Elicina snail mucus comes from the Chilean snail Helix aspersa. What makes the Chilean snail secretion so good for the skin is that its incredible combination of natural substances. Did you know that snail secretions actually heal the snail and its shell? Yes it does. And that is how it heals the skin. The snails expel the secretion to heal themselves from trauma. They can even re-build their shells if broken. Basically these small creatures are busy manufacturing labs of their own regenerative, reconstructive substance. The Chilean Snail contains:
- Natual Allantoin: Not like other dermatological product with obtain allantoin synthetically by laboratory means. Allantoin is what makes the regeneration of your skin possible. Scars and stretch marks disappear wounds heal quickly leaving no marks.
- Proteins and Vitamins: Resulting in richness and softness of your skin.
- Natural Collagen and Elastin: The main components of the human connective tissue we call skin.
- Natural Glycolic Acid: This is what makes possible the skin exfoliation or peeling, eliminating dead cells that are on the surface of your skin, along with wrinkles and expression lines. Since the Glycolic Acid found in Elicina is not synthetic it does not irritate your skin.
Elicina was launched in South America in 1995. Customer reception to it was unprecedented. Popularity of the cream grew by leaps and bounds, based solely on the results users achieved. Today thousands of snails are carefully nursed and maintained in conditions close to their natural environment and no snails are harmed in the collection of their secretions. This cream is 80% snail mucin. That is a lot. Which also means the creams are worth the money you are paying for them, because they have such a high concentration of active ingredient. It is the first ingredient listed on the ingredients list. When you use a product made with snail mucin you are not only using an anti-aging product but you are using a prophylactic product that prevents aging too. It is always good to kill two birds with one stone.
I found that the Eco Elicina Cream helped with my hyperpigmentation, skin firmness and some beginning wrinkles I had. It made my skin feel younger looking and made it look younger. The Eco Elicina XT Cream is a great eye cream. This helps with dark circles (of which I had been having problems from lack of sleep) and it got rid of them, it helps with small, fine lines and it smooths out the eyes, making them look very young and nice. I am very happy with the results of this cream and I shall keep using it.
The Eco Elicina Cream runs $47.99 and can be purchased at www.elicina.com and www.amazon.com. The eye contour cream Eco Elicina XT Eye Contour Cream runs $29.70 and can be purchased online at www.elicina.com and www.buyelicina.com. Don't purchase off of auction sites because that cream is usually old or has been replaced with another cream. With something like this it is important to purchase from a reputable source. Right now there are only a couple of sources. Amazon seems to have the same cream but I am a little wary. There are many other variations in sizes of the creams but I cannot list them all here. I just wanted you to know that this is a good product that works and can be purchased at reasonable prices.
Until Next Time~
