Hinarushi review for Snow Mushroom
This is a moisturizer with Tremella Fuciformis (Snow Mushroom) extract, an ingredient rich in antioxidants. It helps to soothe, calm the skin and reduce the appearance of redness, while providing an instant cooling effect on the skin. ▪︎My skin profile: Combination, dehydrated, prone to rosacea and Malassezia. ▪︎Malassezia (fungal acne) safe: No. This moisturizer has a clear and transparent lightweight gel consistency. The texture reminds me a bit of aloe vera. I like the cool and refreshing feeling it provides on application. The product can be stored in the fridge to amplify its cooling effects. I feel this is more hydrating than moisturizing as it is not enough for my combo dehydrated skin. I need to top up with a thicker cream on top to seal in the moisture, something which I don't like to do, as less products on my face are better for my problematic skin. I hope you can see from the video how hydrating it is. In my opinion this moisturizer is perfect for people with oily skin.
This product did not work for me, as my face got irritated, red and hot to the touch due to my allergy to Phenoxyethanol. This does not mean that this product itself is bad but that I had a reaction and your skin may or may not react the same as all skin types are different. YMMV - Your mileage might vary. In combination with other products, this moisturizer causes a lot of pilling on my skin, as I find some time after application, my skin feels gummy and icky... I resorted to using this one my neck and chest and back areas instead, so as to not go to waste. I personally would have liked to see some additional ingredients added to the formula such as Aloe Vera or Centella Asiatica to add more benefits. This product is expensive for what it does and I prefer the E.L.F.'s SuperHydrate Gel Moisturizer over this.
