So I was looking at Instagram today when a DM came in from my longtime beautyfriend Rachel at Naruko US, letting me know that she’d created a coupon code for my readers for a few items she knows I like a lot. At first I was like, “Ooh, that’s so nice!” And then I realized I should tell you guys about it and link you to the products, so here we go.
The products featured in this post were provided by a Fifty Shades of Snail sponsor. Affiliate links are marked with an asterisk(*).
The coupon code is fiddysnail10, and from now through Thursday, March 23, it will get you 10% off of the following products from the Naruko US* website:
Naruko Dermalane Intensive Brightening Renewal Treatment, the 20% mandelic acid exfoliating serum that I reviewed late last year and gave a 4.2/5 rating.
I’ll link the full review below, but here’s an excerpt from the conclusion:
“In the past 2+ months, the Naruko DermaLane Intensive Brightening Renewal Treatment has cleared out clogs I’ve been living with for months or years. It’s softened and faded plenty of my sunspots (both new and old) as well, and it makes my skin feel like the silkiest of silk–as long as I don’t get overexcited and use it more frequently than I should.
I’m not a fan of the dropper bottle or the slightly oily feel of the product, and some of you won’t be fans of the fragrant essential oils in it, but overall, this is an exceptional Asian exfoliant.”
Naruko Dermalane 1000-Molecule Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Cream
I recently did an Instareview of this cream that’s embedded below, so I won’t say too much more besides providing the full ingredients. But I do want to say some things.
This is one of two Naruko moisturizers in my current top three and the one that I’d suggest for normal to oily or oily skin. I love the way it feels on skin, cool and quenching, and I love the simplicity of it: no fragrance and no expectations beyond dewily hydrated skin. If you are sensitive to silicones or to even very small amounts of alcohol in your skincare, however, you may want to patch test or avoid. Ingredients below the embedded post.
Ingredients: Purified water, cyclomethicone, propanediol (zemea propanediol), butylene glycol, glycerin, dicaprylyl carbonate, cetyl dimethicone, silica, cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 dimethicone, sodium chloride, tocopheryl acetate, phenoxyethanol, phytosteryl/octyldodecyl lauroyl glutamate, crambe abyssinica seed oil, glycosyl trehalose, panthenol, lactobacillus/olea europaea (olive) leaf ferment extract, hydrogenated starch hydrolysate, saccharide isomerate, sodium hyaluronate, polyquaternium-51, alcohol denat., iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, saccharomyces/copper ferment, saccharomyces/iron ferment, saccharomyces/magnesium ferment, saccharomyces/silicon ferment, saccharomyces/zinc ferment, sodium PCA, sorbitol, terminalia ferdinandiana fruit extract, trehalose, urea, leuconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate, citric acid, sodium citrate
Naruko Supreme Creme of Jing Cheng
Where the 1000-Molecule Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Cream is best suited for normal to oily skin, the Supreme Creme of Jing Cheng is made for complexions on the normal to dry side of the spectrum. It also has peptides galore and a novel-length list of brightening, anti-aging, antioxidant-packed plant extracts and traditional herbal ingredients, for those of us who want a potential extra edge in the battle against time.
If your skin doesn’t tolerate coconut-derived ingredients, shea butter, silicones, or fruit enzyme ingredients like papain and pineapple extract, patch test or avoid. Otherwise, I’ll let the Instareview speak for itself.
