[REVIEW] Secret Key MaYu Healing Facial Cream

Secret Key MaYu Healing Facial Cream Review:

Today’s review is about one of my first Korean creams that I ever bought. And fell in love with the Asian skin care at all. Secret Key is Korean brand that started business in 2006. They claim to be in pursuit of healthy beauty with the reasonable price and natural and environmental friendly ingredients.

In addition, the horse oil as the cosmetics ingredient was pretty much exotic to me. So to speak. And so promising for my skin concerns.


♥ Smooth and elastic skin from deep within,

♥Whitening and anti-wrinkle in one,

♥Ample moisture and hydration,

♥Completion of healthy facial skin with water-oil balancing.

Secret Key MaYu Healing Facial Cream Review:

This product comes in typical glass cream pot with the metallic lid on top. Nothing extravagant, rather nice and simple. Texture is not greasy, light, yellowish cream with the beautiful scent.

The scent is fresh and citrusy, with floral hint, so cosy and inviting. I love it. Although I don’t appreciate fragranced cosmetics, this one my skin didn’t mind. Thanks to the scent because application of this cream is a happy little event and makes me think about aromatherapy.

Now let’s talk bout Horse oil. Some of you will frown upon this, but I can’t be judgemental towards it, as Korean skin care industry claims they don’t (God forbid) kill horses for cosmetics purposes. And I am stopping here.

But as the cosmetic ingredient, horse oil has healing and moisturizing properties. This cream also claims to be whitening and anti-wrinkle, thanks to niacinamide and adenosine. Moisture and hydration and skin barrier protection are promised through action of hyaluronic acid and ceramides.

Secret Key MaYu Healing Facial Cream Review

Overall this is a nice, efficient, and delivering product. This was love on the first application. This cream always in use and will always be, at least until my skin says so. My skin texture has improved, dehydration is non-existent anymore, and sebum production is in normal levels.

Of course, this cream is not the sole cause of this great result, but rather great partner to other great products and ingredients in my daily routines.

Answer to the repurchase question will always be yes, when it comes to this cream. Actually, I am using the second jar already.
I recommend this cream to every skin type. Including sensitive skins. For very dry skin types, I think this will not be enough on its own, but with other hydrating and moisturizing steps in skin care routine, should be fine. Oily skin types could find it maybe too nourishing for the day time use, so I recommend it as night cream.
