It's Here! My Rave Review of Shark Sauce

For months I read about Shark Sauce on r/asianbeauty. It was created by the talented Chel from Holy Snails and inspired by Fiddy from Fifty Shades of Snail. This stuff is packed with yummy ingredients that I seek in products all in one bottle. When the co-op launched I tried each month but never managed to snag a bottle.
But then (possibly because the Internet pressured her into it... Sorry not sorry Chel,) A shop was opened! Even there the stuff sells out super fast but I got my hands on some. I've been using it for months and this review is SO late but I'm finally ready. I'll tell you why I love it, how to get it, and give a little preview of things to come.
I'm going to start out with a picture of the cute little bottle because hey packaging is fun!

Chel was kind enough to let me use her shop photo. I'm going to show my bottle in action but I wanted to showcase how it looks new. I didn't want people judging the product based on the ratty condition of my bottle.
Why is my personal bottle so ugly?
This is actually one of the perks of the product. The plastic squeeze bottle with a nice screw on cap makes this bottle super portable. My bottle has been thrown in my purse, work bag, and survived a gym bag spill incident (no the Shark Sauce was not the leak culprit.)
For a limited time Shark Sauce was also offered in a fancy bottle. I keep that one at home. Owning two bottles of yeh same product might sound excessive but I really like to have it with me at all times AND I like to feel fancy. Once I get in to the ways I use the stuff you will see that despite having a usual ban on back up products this is an exception. Chel if you read this... Know that I would be ALL OVER a jumbo option.
So what is this stuff anyway?
I'm going to borrow from the Holy Snails page again because honestly who would describe the product better than the creator?
Shark Sauce **does not** contain sharks, shark extract, or shark wings. Its name comes from one of my muses, Jude, of Fifty Shades of Snail (
Shark Sauce is a hydrating serum that features 5% Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and 3% N-Acetyl Glucosamine, which are ideal for fighting hyperpigmentation.
It has supporting extracts like licorice root (brightening), green tea (anti-inflammatory), and sea kelp bioferment (hydrating) as well as hyaluronic acid and sodium lactate for additional hydration.
Ingredients: (Distilled Water, Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid), Sea Kelp Bioferment, Niacinamide, Licorice Root Extract,
N-Acetylglucosamine, Sodium Lactate, Panthenol, Green Tea Extract, (Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben), Disodium EDTA
How to Use: Apply several drops to cleansed face. Follow with moisturizer.
Suitable for: All skin types.
So how do I use the product?
Honestly I want to bath in this stuff. I think the product instructions really undersell the product here. I do apply this to my face before moisturizer after my active wait time. I also use it under my sheet masks to boost them a little. I've slathered this on patches of PIH all over my body and it works every time.
Want to see my bare skin during my "time of the month," many weeks into using Shark Sauce? 
I haven't been taking the best case of myself and that extends to my skin but I reached for the Shark Sauce on even my most minimal routine days. This might not be as dramatic as massive before and after photos but I think it shows the effects. Monthly spots usually leave me with PIH well into the next month.
No flash, day light bulbs in use... I'm not a professional photographer OK?
I used to DIY my own things to fight my seemingly never ending battle with PIH but I had a kind of "kill it with fire," approach and I always had to seriously compensate with moisturizing steps to keep myself from frying my skin.
With Shark Sauce Chel has worked magic to make the marks fade fast with a gentle formula. My skin condition actually feels better with Shark Sauce in the mix all skin tone brightening properties aside.
How does it stack up? 
5/5 on my rating scale. I've already repurchased.
Want your own bottle? 
As I mentioned earlier Chel has opened a shop to sell her growing line of amazing products. I haven't found a miss amount her line yet. Stay tuned for more reviews of things I love from her shop snd check it out for yourself.
