The aging process is inevitable for everyone lucky enough to live a long life. Some experts say it starts around age 25, which means anti-aging products are appropriate way before we are officially “old”. This ogana cell cream has a high concentration of peptides (100 ppm) to keep the skin in its best shape for as long as possible. I’m 28 and have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry-to-normal cheeks.
A bit about peptides and why we need them. With age, the amount of protein in the skin decreases, and the first wrinkles are formed. Peptides are protein ingredients that strengthen the skin, prevent aging and improve elasticity. The peptide molecules are much smaller than protein ones and can penetrate deeper into the skin, restoring it from within. This cream contains 10 different peptides for a strong anti-aging effect. The cream is available on eBay and Amazon.

How to use:
Cleanse and tone the face
Apply the Ogana cream to the face and neck (I also use a serum as a second step)
The cream came in a sealed metal tube that had to be punctured before the initial use (I love that, because it guarantees an airtight seal during storage and shipping). It has a faint “masculine” smell that’s only noticeable if I hold it directly to my nose. The consistency is thick and rich and I only need a small amount for the whole face and neck.
I’ve been using the cream for a few weeks at night. It is too rich for my combination skin during the day; maybe in the winter it would be alright in the mornings. It does get absorbed fairly well but some slight stickiness remains. By morning, the stickiness is gone and I wake up with a refreshed face and tighter looking skin. I’ve been losing a lot of weight which can cause temporary sagging in the jaw area, especially around the corners of the mouth, and that sagging has completely gone away since starting this cream. I think it would be best for dry-to-normal aging skin, works fine for combination skin, and would likely be much too heavy for oily skin. I have had no adverse reactions and no irritation. I have also been putting it on my hands before bed as hands can betray the real age much earlier than the face.
The slight sticky residual feeling is greatly reduced if you do not apply too many layers before the cream. I love the 10 step Korean skincare routine as much as anyone, but when I use this cream, I stick with toner, serum, and this cream and that’s it. That helps the cream get absorbed better, plus it’s what the official instructions say to do. Overall, I can confidently recommend this product as it does what it promises. It can be ordered on eBay and Amazon.
