Mena Facial Cream Review

mena-facial-cream-review

Last post for the month of July. Today we’ll be doing a Mena Facial Cream Review. Are you familiar with this cream? It’s a very cheap facial cream made in Thailand commonly seen in drugstores; and admit it, it’s commonly used by our yayas (househelp). Back when I was in elementary, I recall my yaya aileen put a thick layer of this cream on her face. I wonder why, because honestly I don’t see any improvements. She still has plenty of pimples, and it only made her skin temporarily ghastly white.

A few of my on-line friends swear by it that it whitened their underarms. A few gave testimonies it made their skin whiter. I remembered. I got curious. I purchased a tube. How is it really?

MENA FACIAL CREAM INGREDIENTS

Let’s dissect the ingredients shall we? I’ll also provide you a brief description of the important ones to help you understand

  • Beeswax (details below)
  • Vitamin E (moisturizer)
  • Titanium Dioxide (commonly used as pigment, also for sun protection)
  • Lanolin (a fatty substance found naturally on sheep’s wool. It is extracted as a yellowish viscous mixture of esters and used as a base for ointments.)
  • Cetyl Alcohol (solidifies product into wax)
  • White Mineral Oil
  • Paraben (preservative)

Bees Wax is probably the most important component for Mena Facial Cream. Good thing it’s also first on the list. It is a product made from a honeycomb of a bee. It helps reduce inflammation and as an emulsifier.

 

Mena Facial Cream Review

I used it for a week. Nothing happened. It just made my skin feel sticky and oily. Using Mena Facial Cream also clogged my pores and gave me more comedones like whiteheads and blackheads.  I tried it on my underarms. Nadda. It just clogged its pores and gave me more “underarm blackheads”. Don’t waste your money on this stuff like I did.  Buti pa Chin Chun Su.

Now I wonder how come this product is still popular in the market? Maybe my skin is not “hiyang” (suitable) for it? Have you tried Mena? How did it work for you?
