Hi Everyone. I am a 56 year old woman who has recently developed rosacea. I have read that Cor Silver Soap is great at dealing with this condition. Before spending a lot of money, I wondered whether anyone is using it and what their results have been?
Hi, I just received a sample and though it was pricey ($14 plus shipping) and is teeny tiny, it lathers like you wouldn't believe. I've just started using this product so I'll keep folks posted as to what I think in the long-term but I must say my skin is super sensitive and so far no adverse reactions. I like a lathery clean feeling (why I continue to use soap instead of cleansers as I find cleansers are either too harsh, greasy or gloopy). They say this sample will last only 2 weeks but I think if used twice a day it is going to last a lot longer. You have to keep it in an air-tight container making sure there isn't extra water in the dish as it is a glycerin base and likely to melt.
I turned to this product as my skin gets blotchy and reacts to sun, indoor heating, wind - you name it!
Apparently one can use this stuff without having to buy the Cor line of other products so I'm sticking with my old standby Clinique moisturizer and Bare Essentials makeup (using a Benefit concealer). Here goes....
After using for about a week I find whatever blotchy red stuff going on is vanishing and I love the results. I'm not turning blue either. I did read on a blog somewhere that excessive use (3x a day, leaving it on the skin for 5 min etc) isn't the way to go. If I begin to turn blue, I'll let y'all know! So far, I'm loving this stuff. Again, I have way-super sensitive skin and I don't let it sit on my face for more than 2 min max.
I have not tried the Cor Silver Soap but have tried the Nano Cyclic Silver soap which sounds very similar (maybe the same). I found it to be a little harsh and made my face red and a little too tingly so after a week I stopped using it. I have roasacea too and very sensitive skin. I think it might be more for acne? Not sure though.
Update on Cor Silver Soap: after the second to third week of use, my very sensitive skin freaked out - It is obvious that I can't use this stuff anymore. Well, gave it a whirl. It lathers so nicely and really cleans the skin to a nice glow but the end result: simply too harsh for sensitive skin. I had to return to Dove non-scented for sensitive skin which is just about the only product out that I don't get a reaction to. By the way: I never did turn blue - red was bad enough!!!!
