It has been awhile!!!

It's been forever since I've updated this blog but I'll do what I can today. Since the strike has ended, school has been non stop work. Like right now, I should be writing my essay but procrastination is kicked in full force. Research papers are such a pain to write.

Anyways, I recently purchased the Ly-Na pearl face cream after hearing the rave reviews about this product. I got it at an asian grocery store for about $4.00. This cream is supposedly amazing when it comes to evening out skin tone and ridding scars and spots as well as whitening. The product reviews were quite promising so I bought it. However, I did an even more indepth research today and found out that it supposedly contains mercury in it. EEEeeek! I did an academic search through Medline, and couldn't find any legitmate claims about it. I'm probably going to see what else I can find about about the product and if it does infact contain mercury then I will definitely being tossing it in the garbage. Sorry for the blurry pictures but I didn't feel like retaking new ones.

Balmy texture and smells like baby powder.

Hi there, many people have asked me about this containing mercury, and like you I have not found anything to support that claim, nor have I personally had a bad experience with it for me to think it does, considering I have really sensitive skin. Of course I do not condone the use of this product if it DOES indeed contain mercury, but until the proof is in the pudding I am still using it. :}
