I bought 2 of these in the can, not airless pump as I have great success with the full cream milk.
What a shocker. The first can I was using was brownish in colour and I thought that was the original colour till I was half-way through and saw the bottom is pure white. Look I have eczema skin and I really don't wanna make matter worse. So I opened the other can and it was pure white. Now one thing I dislike is the can does not have a seal of freshness so it is hard to say what went wrong.
I emailed the MooGoo and their rep said it is common with their cream because it is all natural and their customers even swirl it up and mix the brown and white together. That to me sounds disgusting because it already smells like stale milk to me.
Anyway, I kept the 2nd can in an airtight box (what do you know, I am that anal!) and will break that out soon. It was white when I put it in, not sure what it will turn out later,
I think it is a better bet to buy the airtight pump if you're a fan. But I am definitely not buying again.
I am a pure organics person and I know these things can happen and has happened with some of my products. Most of them will tell me not to use the oxidised/discoloured part just in case but MooGoo is telling me to mix it in. What the...
MooGoo... I am moving on from your truly stale milk crap.
I hate to bring the rating down. I read so much about moogoo and wanted to give it a try and overall it is a fail for me. I bought this cream to use on my body but it wouldn't mositurize enough so I started to use it on my face. Only after 3 to 4 hours of applying this cream, my skin still feels tight. Needless to say, I will not be buying it again.
I can't say enough good things about this product!
Not only is it amazing for my skin, it's also affordable.
I am nearly finished my first tube of this and I will definitely be buying again and again. This moisturiser is so light and easily absorbed, however it moisturises better than any other I've tried. It also does not in any way further annoy the eczema patches I have only cheeks which is a godsend. Do yourself a favour and give this a try, you won't regret it :-)
My skin was so dry, so I bought this at the pharmacy. After 5 days using it, my skin was smooth and moisturized. I love this!! you should try
This is a review for me & my husband since we both use this product.
Has rosacea and VERY DRY skin. He uses this every morning & night. He has the big tub of it and it's lasted him a long time. I think in 6 months he's gone through half. It moisturizes his dry skin well and calms down his rosacea. He loves it.
I have the smaller version in the airless pump bottles. I have combination acne prone skin. I use this on my dry skin days, usually most days in winter, and anytime my skin feels irritated. This doesn't break me out & I'm very acne prone. It moisturizes very well without making me greasy. It is also very soothing. I love it! This is my HG winter moisturizer & dry skin days moisturizer and I've rarely had an HG before yet I've tried SOOO many brands from La Mer to Estee Lauder to Lancome to Korres to Aesop to drugstore brands like Olay & Neutrogena etc. I've tried it all! My only HG before this has been L'occitane's red rice line which is soon to be discontinued. This stuff is the best. It simply works! My HG summer moisturizer is the MooGoo Acne Cream.
I love this product! I bought this from Priceline for about $16 a week or so ago. I started having problems with my normal skin care range and needed a basic moisturiser to get me by, while i did a "break" lol. So the lady directed me to this as it was natural! I LOVE IT! Even after one use, my skin instantly settled down and it took away alot of the reddness caused from my massive breakout the day before. After a night, using it twice - my skin had almost completely cleared up. All the pimples had settled down and my face was looking and feeling SO much better! And such a little bit goes SUCH a long way. I did find that after using such an active skin care range like ASAP, I had to adjust as my skin was slightly more dryer. But as directed, just applied another layer 10 mins after the first application. This is just such a wonderful product. I cant wait to try others from their range!
OMG! I love this stuff. I was so lucky to have received a sample of this from dear Aussie swapper. I have super reactive sensitive skin with SD around my eyes. My porcelain (NW15) skin often had ruddiness in the cheeks. I just thought it was because I am so fair but after using this cream, my skin is beautifully even now. No more red.
So soothing? Yes.
This also smells good, sinks into the skin, makes my skin nice and soft and I haven't had a breakout since I started using it. Best cream I have ever tried.
The not so great things about this is that it's not available in the US. But, I was able to purchase from the MooGoo website and have it shipped to the US. Also, it comes in a tub. A tube or a pump would be nicer but as long as I can get this at all , I am happy.
I also reviewed the Eczema & Psoriasis balm
I purchased the MSM Cream after a bit of research and reading the great reviews on here. I have now used the cream for one week, morning and night.
Pro's - It doesn't make me break out, makes my face feel smoother and softer and more even toned, plump and hydrated initially,especially when you put it on damp freshly washed skin. Absorbs nicely after rubbing in. I love that this is natural. (Before this I was using QV and Bio Oil, great for moisturising but bad for chemical content).
Con's - I think it is not moisturising enough for my skin, I need two applications of it (10 mins apart) and then some for my dry area's (cheeks/in between eyes). Even after two coats, it feels tight after about 5 mins after application, I don't know whether it is the MSM content, general ingredients or my dry skin that is the reason for this, or maybe this is the way it is meant to feel? In any case, I am struggling to get used to the feeling. Perhaps it will be better for me in summer.
If I continue with the MSM cream (which I will to use up the container) I think I will need to put another moisturiser on first, then the MSM cream over the top (I think for winter anyway).
Price is OK $24.95 for 250ml container. Reasonable compared to some high end moisturisers.
It does take a bit of massaging to rub in and the smell is fine - smells a bit sulpher/milk like - but this dissapears after it is rubbed in anyway.
I would purchase again purely for the pro's and will just need to make sure I have another moisturiser on hand for extra hydration in winter. Once this tub is used up though, I am going to try some other natural products first - MiEssence, Bee Natural, Avado or The Good Oil which look pretty good too.
Edit: After two weeks of use, my skin does not like this :( I have come out in small red dots/rash, plus a little bit of break out pimples. This will now be a hand and foot cream or given away. Now I am trying Oca-Brazil Maracuja (Passion Fruit) Oil.
I've been using this cream on my face for more than a week now and I must say I have noticed a significant difference in my skin already, even my mum has commented me on my skin, and that's saying something. It's clearing my acne up and is preventing blind pimples etc from popping up. I've had two developing blind pimples while using this and it has been reduced to nothing with 2 days of use!
I was hesitant at first to buy this brand as it contained Sweet Almond Oil as the second ingredient and thought that this might aggravate my moderate to severe acne. I've had acne for 5-6 years and have never been able to clear it completely. I've used so many products that I've lost count.
I brought this cream from a local health food store, the pump version 75ml for $17.95.
I only use this with Hemp Hemp Hooray Cleansing Cream, so I know the MSM is working as I've used the Cleanser for about 1 week by itself and then the next 2 weeks with the skin soothe and noticed my skin get progressively worse. I only cleanse my face once a day too and I don't wear any make up. The smell is nice, its sort of got a lollypop smell to it, like vanilla almost. Its easy to spread especially if you follow their instruction and apply it to damp skin. It leaves the skin feeling normal and subtle, my face isn't oily when I use this, it absorbs like a dream and no extra rubbing in.
I've used this cream morning and night for the past 7 months (MSM Soothing Cream and the MSM Nut free cream). Its a great cream, leaves my face non oily, hydrates and leaves skin feeling extremely soft, when i forget to apply it-this rarely happens it leaves my skin feeling tight. It still doesn't aggravate my acne and still prevents blind pimples from popping out but having said that it hasn't made my acne disappear either or reduced my acne. Both Nut free and the original msm are good-they rate the same for me in terms of ingredients they used and their effectiveness in moisturising my face, but i find the nut free one easier to spread on the face, you don't need a damp face. Go for the tub also 250ml its cheaper at $24.95 although a little unhygienic. I also like to use it as a hand cream and works nicely although i have to use it every night. Its also non greasy/waxy and has no smell once it sinks in (which it does well-doesn't linger on the skin). FYI the only other products i'm using with this is the Moogoo Milk Wash and Moogoo Combination OCM; the combination isn't really doing anything for my extremely stubborn acne; but it cleanses well and doesn't strip my face of oil. My face would feel like a baby's bottom if i was acne free!
Bottom Line: Highly recommended for people with normal/acne free skin. If your looking for a cream to eliminate acne keep looking and let me know when you've found one! :) I've given it 5 stars because it does all it claims to do without breaking me out.
So far I really love this stuff. I use it once every day or two and it seems to reduce redness, but what really impresses me about it is its ability to reduce stubborn blackheads on and around my nose. I have those gross big pores in that region that are always full of gunk. I did not expect this cream to do anything about this problem so I was surprised when I noticed that the pores were smaller and less congested since I began using this product. The cream doesn't overmoisturize or clog pores. I have not been very successful in finding facial moisturizers that my skin can tolerate, but my skin tolerates this quite well. I also use it on the backs of my arms as it's great for the keratosis pilaris.
I originally purchased from MooGoo because I wanted to try their oil cleanser and also decided to get this cream, the udder cream, the goat's milk soap, and the deoderant. I am undecided about the oil cleanser and the deoderant, but everything else is great. It was worth the international shipping to the U.S. The company has great skin care philosophies.
