Ingredients Explained

These ingredients are found in both products.

Ingredients higher up in an ingredient list are typically present in a larger amount.

1
What it does: Masking, Skin Conditioning
Community Rating: Liked

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is an emollient, solvent, and texture enhancer. It is considered a skin-softener by helping the skin prevent moisture loss.

Within a product, Caprylic Triglyceride can thicken the product and make spreadability easier by dissolving clumping compounds. An added benefit of Caprylic Triglyceride is its antioxidant properties.

Caprylic Triglyceride is made by combining glycerin with coconut oil, forming a clear liquid. Caprylic Triglyceride has not been found to be toxic for human use in concentrations under 50%.

While there is an assumption Caprylic Triglyceride can clog pores due to it being derived from coconut oil, there is no research supporting this.

Great product!
Very good product for acne-prone skin. Thanks to its exfoliating power, it helps fight acne and enlarged pores, but at the same time it moisturises the skin, making it soft and preventing irritation and dryness.

I used this in summer for more than a month and started getting little bumps and just broke out :( the serum of this line is so much better, but since I ran out of it, I decided to get this one since it's also snail mucin. It's not the same though... maybe it's because my skin is super sensitive.

Even better than the essence
This is like no other moisturizer I’ve ever tried. It is slimy and gooey yet feels like I’m rubbing silky water on my face. It absorbs in beautifully, not feeling sticky or tacky at all. I use this as my nighttime moisturizer so the copper peptides do not interfere with vitamin C serum used in the morning. Upon waking my skin feels soft, supple, replenished. It’s too bad they don’t package this in an airless pump or better yet, a squeeze tube, as I don’t really like the stringy slimy experience of having it stretch from the jar to your fingers and drip onto everything in between in the process but… the benefits of using it far outweighs this minor inconvenience for me.
