Comparing two Human Nature body scrubs.

Let’s be honest. With all the products I pile on to my face skin, sometimes (often) my body skin gets neglected. It’s just soap, body lotion, and a body scrub sometimes when I remember it and I’m not feeling lazy. Granted my body skin is not as problematic as my face skin, but it still needs some love, you know? It can get gross.

So my body skincare routine is just:

  • Any soap that’s in the bathroom, really. But I prefer the original Dove bar soap if it’s available.
  • Nivea body lotion. I really like the Intensive Moisture Body Milk.
  • Body scrubs, most likely from Human Nature.

So here we are. I think they have another body scrub variant, but I haven’t tried that, and I don’t want to.

I tried all of the Skin Watchers moisturizers.

DISCLAIMER: These products are part of a gratitude package from Skin Watchers and were given to me with no strings attached. I was not asked to review them, but I will anyway.

My journey in finding the perfect moisturizer has been a long one. Light but not too light that it won’t hydrate me enough, moisturizing but not too heavy to break me out, no silicones, and no drying alcohols. There’s enough hydrating gels available in the market, but most of them have silicones in the first few ingredients, and my face does not like that.

The Skin Watchers Green Snail Hydrating Gel has been my HG since I found it, and has only been recently replaced by the Intensive Cream version of it.

They also have the Whitening Water Drop and the reformulated Ceramizing Cream in their lineup, so let’s take a look at all of them.

So, you may have noticed I’m trying something new.

I’ve been increasingly frustrated of trying to catch good sunlight to photograph the products I’m reviewing. So I thought I’d just abandon photography altogether and try my hand at watercolor. It’s not half bad, I think.

Skin Watchers Green Snail Intensive Cream: A Review

DISCLAIMER: This product was part of a gratitude package from Skin Watchers and was given to me with no strings attached. I was not asked to review them, but I will anyway.

After a not super positive experience with the Ceramizing Essence Toner, and as part of my Skin Watchers series, I’m here to review the Skin Watchers Green Snail Intensive Cream. If you’ve been hanging around these parts, the name might sound familiar because I have been harping about the Hydrating Gel version of this cream for forever.

TL;DR: I love it as much as the hydrating gel, especially in the colder weather of the past couple of months.


INGREDIENTS: Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water (62.47%), Methylpropanediol, Water, Glycerin, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Beeswax, Snail Secretion Filtrate, Sorbitan Stearate, Microcrystalline Wax, Caprylyl Glycol, 1.2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Betula Alba Juice, Cetyl Palmitate, Sorbitan Palmitate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Sorbita Sesquioleate, Phyto Squalene, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil

Skin Watchers Ceramizing Essence Toner [Reformulated, New Packaging]: A Review

Late last year, I got a lot of Skin Watchers products. Yoon, the brains behind the brand, has been seeing my reviews of his products and contacted me to offer to send some more products to try as a thank you. I am very grateful because I love how he formulates with minimal fragrance and almost no silicones. So, please expect my upcoming reviews to be about Skin Watchers products.


First up is the Ceramizing Essence Toner. I have a review of the old formulation (Skin Watchers Ceramizing Essence Toner: A Review). TL;DR: I did not like the old formulation, mainly because of the scent.

CLAIMS: Skin Watchers Ceramizing Essence Toner contains 30ml of essence that locks moisture in. Free from parabens, mineral oil, benzophenone, and artificial color, this product contains various organic ingredients such as lavendar water and aloe vera leaf juice powder. Using hyaluronic acid, ceramide, squalane, glycerin, and macadamia seed oil, this product deeply moisturizes your skin. Use it together with Ceramizing Cream for optimum results.

INGREDIENTS: Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Squalane, C14-22 Alcohols, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Ceramide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Butylene Glycol, Impatiens Balsamina Flower Extract, Rosa Multiflora Fruit Extract, Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract, Aureobasidium Pullulans Ferment, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Stem Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Undaria Pinnatifida Extract, Coptis Japonica Root Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glyceryl Stearate, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Arginine, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Betaine, Dimethicone, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Chlorphenesin, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil
