    I’m very familiar with Jeju Island and the often weird skin care ingredients from them but I haven’t heard of horse placenta yet. This product sounds really interesting :)

    Jenny, I’m legit in tears with your pun – I’ll give you the credit where it’s due! x When I saw the title, I genuinely thought you’d gone bat shit crazy, but, actually, the products sound wonderful! x The packaging is super boujee and the repair cream sounds right up my street! Pricey, but worth it Jenny!
    Lots of love,
    Marina Rosie x

    yay or neigh– I totally snorted. Oh man, I love the wacky inventions in Kbeauty products! First slime of snail, now placenta of horse– is eye of newt next? But hey! if it works, it works! I ain’t complaining!
    one very important question tho: how much does it cost?

  6. Horse placenta, Gosh, just hearing that word is honestly a turn off. I’m very squeamish but I must say I did use a particular skincare once with snail something in it??? so I’m guessing that since this is skincare maybe I won’t mind the placenta being in it too much…. I don’t know…Maybe. The creams look quite lovely and even luxe and it sounds quite promising too. Love the packaging as well! x

    Loved the pun haha. Even though these were sourced ethically I think this ingredient would put me off. It’s fascinating to hear about the benefits though. – Amy

    I clicked on this because of Horse placenta. :OOOOOO

    I’m so impressed by you doing your research for your products! I’m most interested in that the horses are not harmed in this process and that the placenta actually has wound healing agents. I have a scar on my face from a massive pimple I got more than 3 years ago, and it still hasn’t healed. :( I’m curious about the the repair cream!

    Their packaging is really pretty, as is all Korean packagings. Have you ever seen Nature Republic’s Super Aqua Max set? Best $50 I ever spent. And the cream’s cap design has a little cream swivel like how cream would naturally look!

    Jenny, great post and thank you for the introduction to this brand. I am the type of person who can train my brain into liking/using just about anything if I know it’s good for me. So I am tempted to give these products a try. I do like the similarity to Vitamin C (although as you say more studies are needed) and I like that these products contain niacinamide. Keep us posted Jenny!

    These products look really nice! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Placenta seems to be the biggest thing after birth, just like Anne said some keep it and make a smoothie or food with it. I will never do that even if it makes me poop diamonds! If it’s in skincare then I don’t think I would mind it as much so this was definitely an interesting read, Jenny!

    • Jenny says:

      Wow, I guess eating placenta after birth is more common than I thought, but the idea of it makes me quite squeamish. If it made me poop diamonds though….I dunno, I guess I could suck it up? Hahaha. Glad you enjoyed the read Shireen! :)

  12. As I learned when pregnant for the first time some people like to keep the placenta and make a smoothie from it, to drink after delivery for a faster recovery and better bonding. I am not surprised to find it in skincare. Personally I would not drink a placenta smoothie, not even from my own, but I don’t think I would be as strict in my skincare. I don’t think it is an ingredient I would search out though.

      Oh my, I didn’t know people made placenta smoothies, though I do know dried placenta is an ingredient in Eastern medicine. I don’t think I could drink my own child’s placenta either, though I’m curious about the ingestion effects now.

  13. Horse placenta, wow! I’m pretty non squeamish but I had a pretty graphic mental picture when I first read that. Nevertheless the creams look lovely and I’d totally try them! I also love the minimalist black and white packaging!

    • Jenny says:

      I unfortunately googled “horse placenta skincare” when I was researching the ingredient and saw the actual thing…it was NOT pretty! Luckily the moisturizers themselves look nothing like actual placenta ^^;; I’m a fan of the minimalist packaging as well, it definitely adds to my vanity’s aesthetics :P
