Due to the nature of my job, I like to think I am open to the majority of beauty products, treatments and techniques but occasionally a new item will appear and for lack of a better term, freak me out. Let's forget the beauty world for a minute; as a person I am terribly squeamish - insects, bugs, blood and vomit, leave me feeling cold. It will probably come as little surprise, that Dr.Organic Organic Snail Gel Facial Serum is not something I am ready to apply to my skin. Not today, not tomorrow and most likely not ever.
Dr.Organic Organic Snail Gel Facial Serum is not only an award winning skin care product but a well loved and received within the beauty world. As icky (I can't believe I resorted to such term) as a Snail Gel Facial Serum may sound, the good news is that no snails have been hurt in the process of creating the gel. Rather it contains Helix Aspersia Muller - this is a substance, or should that be slime that snails produce. After a little research apparently Helix Aspersia Muller boasts repairing technology - it naturally repairs the snail's shell and skin, as well as being rich in Glycolic Acid, Collagen and Elastin. On human skin, it can aid the skin regeneration as well as being a great anti-ageing addition to any routine. As great as all that may be, I can't bring myself to applying this to my face - I'm truly a little worried about the scent and texture despite all the glowing reviews.
It's not just the aforementioned serum that I shy away from; I've avoided at all costs the Vampire Facial (it involves blood, my blood - need I say more?), the sheep placenta trend also passed me by completely. Heck it took me a stern talking to and some deep breathes to as much as embrace sea weed - what chances did placenta, blood or snail gunk have? I'm all for invention but sadly my stomach isn't quite ready for some trends.
I do want to be a little braver but for me beauty products should be enjoyable, so why force myself to embrace something that isn't a necessity?
What product/s have you purposely avoided due to the ingredient/s being a little too much for you to bear?
