Chasin’ Rabbits is a new to me brand. So far, I’ve tried the bath bomb (review here) and a sunscreen that’s so bad I don’t even want to give it away (review here). Today’s review is for their Magic Beauty Shroom.
Chasin’ Rabbits Magic Beauty Shroom is a vegan, cruelty free essence (which is somewhat hard to tell by the product name). It promises to soothe, hydrate, plump, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. This is a single ingredient product - 100% tremella mushroom extract, which I find fascinating. It’s available on Wishtrend (code LUCY15), YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT), Amazon, and Stylevana (code INF10KBH).
Tremella mushroom extract is rich in beta-glucan, collagen-mimicking substances, and vitamin D to support a healthy skin barrier and cell regeneration. Based on all of these benefits, I wouldn’t be surprised if tremella mushroom extract becomes the next cica or mugwort in the kbeauty world.
How to use:
Apply after cleansing
Gently pat in for best absorption
Feel free to use more than one layer for extra hydration and plumping
Follow with the rest of your routine
Can be used in the morning or evening
The Magic Beauty Shroom is a clear, watery substance with no noticeable color or scent (my sense of smell is still not completely back after an illness, but I don’t think this has any aroma at all). It’s very easy to spread and isn’t sticky or oily. I like the flip top lid for convenient one-handed dispensing.
I have combination skin with some oily and dry areas and early signs of aging (sigh… by the way, I’m going to keep referring to them as “early” until I’m in a retirement home). Now that the weather is finally cooling off, my skin is in need of extra hydration and nourishment to keep it balanced. When my t-zone gets dehydrated, it produces what I call revenge oil, meanwhile the dry areas get flaky.
Chasin’ Rabbits Magic Beauty Shroom is a welcome part of my evening routine. I either use it right after cleansing (as suggested by the brand) or after a first treatment essence by another brand. I love layering skincare. Usually 1-2 layers is enough for my skin, but someone who’s very dry may enjoy a few more applications.
I love that the essence provides hydration without causing any congestion in the oily zones. It’s watery but still slightly thicker than actual water and has a tiny bit of a pleasant slip. I also see a noticeable plumping effect, especially in the forehead region and the nasolabial folds.
The packaging deserves a special mention - I love Chasin’ Rabbits designs, they make me want to put on a flowy floral skirt, let my hair down and go on an adventure in a van. It has all the hippie vibes and more. It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it.
