Farmstay : The Secret of Snails & A Few Changes To My Skin Regimen

Soap and Water Girl

I have always been choosy when it comes to the products that I use for my skin. My problem has always been that my skin is too sensitive no matter how mild a product is. I usually end up with using water to wash my face then I wipe off the remaining dirt with make-up remover/wipes.

Well, since I'm not getting any younger, I realized that there are certain skin regimens that I need to follow to a T if I want to keep my skin glowing. (Hahaha...sounds like a line from a TV Commercial) I know that now. The problem is, what is the best skincare product that would be friendly towards my super sensitive skin?

A friend of mine advised me to use a product that he said was made out of snail lime, yes, you got that right, snail lime. What could be more scary than that? Let's go deeper.

The Secret of Snails


In 1980, snail farmers in Chile who were exporting snails to restaurants in Europe noticed that the skin on their hands became extremely soft. Injuries and cuts also healed quickly without becoming infected.

Studies show that snail lime contains a perfect balance of proteins, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants which:


  • Stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. Elastin is the "rubber band" of skin - it makes skin "snap back" to its original shape after being stretched or contracted. Collagen on the other hand is a protein that supports skin - keeping it strong and firm. 
  • Protect the skin from harmful elements in the environment that lead to premature skin aging. 
(Study conducted by Farmstay)

Snail Lime is ideal for:

  • preventing and repairing wrinkles, making the skin firm, flexible and plump
  • visibly tightening the pores
  • dramatically hydrate skin for a softer and smoother texture
  • healing inflamed, irritated or damaged skin (due to burns or acne)
Skincare Secret Revealed

I have always been fascinated with how glowing and fair the skin of Korean women are. A loud and proud koreanovela junkie, I have always gushed about how beautiful their skin can be. It was one of the secrets I wanted to discover. Not that I have problematic skin, no, I just had too sensitive skin but I was never the one to be saddled with the break-out problems. Still, I wanted to know their regimen. Let's just say, they were my peg when it comes to skin matters. 

There's a tidbit that I found when a friend of mine recommended FARMSTAY to me. Yes, it's a line of Korean skincare products that I am currently using. So here's what I learned, the answer to why Korean women have such smooth and seemingly poreless skin. 

The secret lies in the amount of time they invest into taking care of their skin. In fact, being conscious about skincare happens during the younger years, even before the wrinkles come. Bottomline: Extraordinary results require extraordinary effort. 

"10 Step Korean Skincare Routine"

1. Make up removal (will be available soon)
2. Cleansing 
3. Exfoliant
4. Toner
5. Essence
6. Serum
7. Face Mask
8. Eye Cream
9. Emulsion
10. Night Cream

Whew! Sounds time consuming! But the reality is, we all need to spend time on skincare the same way we spend time putting on make-up. This is how we can achieve the skin we so want to have. 


A Little Test Drive
Apple Peeling Gel

So here's what I decided to do, I gave some of FARMSTAY products a little test so that I would be able to say if this is gonna be the product that I'll be using long term. Here's my version of the Skincare Routine:

First, I use the regular facial wash that I have been using, Twice a week, this becomes the 2nd step, I exfoliate using All - In - One Whitening Peeling Gel - a gentle exfoliator for extra soft and bright skin.

Third, to make sure all dust and dirt from staying out for more than 8 hours, I use the Grape Stem Cell Anti-Aging Toner - light, cleansing toner to remove oil, perspiration, dirt and makeup. This is best used after washing with cleanser. (Which I really have to get soon.)

The fourth and last step is applying Grape Stem Cell Wrinkle Lifting Cream - this has got to be one of my most favorite creams ever, though I don't like the smell. Anyways, this lifting cream serves as an anti-aging moisturizer.

Yes, I use anti-aging products now and I'm glad I have learned about FARMSTAY the soonest.

Here are my Top Three reasons why I would recommend FARMSTAY products to every Filipina ( of course, with advice from your dermatologist):

1. Whiter and glowing skin - though I was born fair, I've always felt like my skin was little darker than the rest of my body. When I started using FARMSTAY products, I have seen dramatic changes to my facial skin tone.

2. Softer skin - not that I have croc skin, hahaha, but since I started using Farmstay products, my skin never felt as soft as it does now. It's like I got my high school skin back!

3. Less oily skin - now, my skin feels a little less oily and more hydrated. I have gotten rid of the "sticky" problems I used to get when exposed outdoors for hours. 


I would definitely be using FARMSTAY's line of skincare products moving forward. My skin has reaped benefits no other products have made on my skin. Believe me, I am choosy with products to use on my skin but these line of products that assure younger and healthier skin is now part of my daily beauty regimen.

I have no regrets. Check out the rest of their skincare products here - FARMSTAY
