Benefits of Mermaid Milk Nutrient Glow Moisturizer
The benefits of this neck cream may include:
- Increase hydration
- Decrease redness
- Reduce dullness
- Reduce the appearance of pores
This review is based solely on my own personal use of the product over a period of time, in this case about 3 weeks.
I do also research other reviews and ratings to see if there are any other pros or cons to the product that come up often that may not have affected me.
My Skin Type
In general, I have normal to combination skin. While my facial skin isn’t sensitive at all, I do sometimes react to products on my neck.
I’m in my mid-40’s with only some fine lines around the eyes and some minor, but expected, loss of firmness.
How I Use Mermaid Milk
I used this cream as directed for a few of weeks. I am still using it at the time of this review.
The directions state to massage it onto the skin in an upward, circular motion. It does not state how often to use it.
In the beginning I only used it at night on the evenings that I did not use retinol. Once my day time moisturizer was gone, I added this to my morning routine as well.
I have no irritation on my skin at all when using this product. It also absorbs into the skin very nicely.
For me, the benefits from this product were good, but just not anything super special. My skin felt hydrated, but not exceptionally smoother than with any other product.
I honestly did not notice any significant “glow” but again, my skin felt hydrated and not tight. It does absorb very well so it could be that I’m used to more residual product on the surface of the skin.
Most of the reviews of this moisturizer are very promising.
I will continue to use this until it’s gone. If any significant improvements appear with continued use, I will definitely come back to update this post.
No one product is perfect for everyone.
I scoured a lot of ratings and reviews for this product, most of which are very high.
The few complaints that I saw indicate that it may not be the best choice for acne prone skin.
Some people don’t care for the scent, which I personally barely noticed.
