Holy Snails Lemon Shark

holy snails lemon shark

I was Holding This Back...
To avoid being cruel to those who missed out. After all... It was a limited edition run...
Then I saw this on Facebook. Man I am so glad I caught it. I have not been checking in much. I'm so out of it I messaged the shop to ask if I had imagined talk of a future product... anywa...
"Introducing Sauce du Mois, our monthly special Shark Sauces with fun and exciting additional extracts!  December's Sauce du Mois is Lemon Shark, but to celebrate, we're doing an early release on Black Friday."

There will NOW be a featured rotating "Sauce du Mois" or Sauce of the month and it started with LEMONSHARK! Now I'm still pushing for it to be part of the full line.... but really it's too close to shark sauce. Also... I love Lemon Shark but I'm on pins and needles to see what's next. Please tell me there are only like... four that rotate quarterly. I can't... I can't handle the excitement of a new version each month and I JUST ORDERED MEGALADON (I wanted it filled with Lemonshark but... well you  know... Rules. 
What Is It?

"Lemon Shark contains everything regular Shark Sauce does, but also includes Lemon Peel Bioferment, which is used to help with brightening and reducing age spots and irregular skin pigmentation.  It is not the same thing as lemon essential oil, and does not photosensitize.  The fermentation process is supposed to be filtered to remove allergens, citral, and geraniol, however if you have a lemon/citrus allergy, please consider our regular Shark Sauce instead."
Yes! Shark Sauce review here... Which Brightens already... With Extra brightening Power... This is... AMAZING! My plan was to just get myself some Lemon peel bioferment and swipe a little on daily to supplement my Shark Sauce since Lemon Shark was to be no more (it can be used in concentrations of up to 100%... so it's safe guys...) But Now... well maybe I'll just see how often this comes around....

"Shark Sauce™ does not contain sharks, shark extract, shark wings, or any other shark derivatives. Its name comes from a nickname of one of our muses, Fifty Shades of Snail, for whom it was originally created."

This might confuse people a bit... but Fifty Shades of Snail was on Reddit before her blog... and her username references sharks. Reminds me a bit of Darling Clandestine. I like to call Holy Snails my Darling Clandestine of Skincare.  How do I get a product named after me... I think I'll have to make it myself. Anyone know where I can affordably get sea cucumber extract?  It's my "thing" lately... and hard to find honestly....

It is honestly important to note that it does not contain sharks though becasue some skincare products use an oil that can be derived from multiple sources... including... sharks. 

"Shark Sauce™ is a hydrating serum that contains 5% Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and 3% N-Acetyl Glucosamine, which work together synergistically to fight hyperpigmentation.  They, along with Panthenol (Vitamin B5), also work to help improve your skin barrier."

"Licorice Root and Green Tea Extracts soothe and brighten skin, while Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Lactate (the sodium salt of Lactic Acid, a popular AHA) hydrate.  The Sea Kelp Bioferment is the result of sea kelp fermented with Lactobacillus, which breaks it down into more bioavailable compounds for your skin to use.  It is a natural film former, and functions as a great oil-free moisturizer."

What's In It?

It has the same ingredients as Shark Sauce EXCEPT in place of some of the water it has Lemon Peel Bioferment. Got it? I'll list out the ingredients for Shark Sauce for you anyway

Ingredients:  (Distilled Water, Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid), Lactobacillus/Nereocystis Luetkeana Ferment Filtrate , Niacinamide, Licorice Root Extract, N-Acetylglucosamine, Sodium Lactate, Panthenol, Green Tea Extract, (Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben), Disodium EDTA PLUS LEMON PEEL BIOFERMENT soooo.... using this... assuming no other additives...

I Ran it through COSDNA for people who are into that... COSDNA doesn't even know what Lemon Peel Bioferment is... so... Just look up shark sauce. you know your sensitivities BETTER than a website. Patch test, introduce slowly. Be safe. Wear condoms... wait... 

(sorry guys the ingredients tab is blank so I'm guessing. but the listing does say all that changed is the addition...

How Do I use it? 
I use it as a... serum... an essence? I light moisture layer that also brightens my skin? Its not the first step (for example a product like Snow Bang would go on first.) And while its suggested as a light moisturizer for me it's a tad too light for that so it goes on BEFORE my heavier stuff.  Once a day, twice a day... I like to mix it up. Face, neck and chest treatment thank you very much (why did I not order two bottles.... oh yes... ran out of gift card and had... gifts to buy....and things to review...) Ah well...
How Did It Work For me?

This is so good it knows half a star off Shark Sauce because I HAVE found something better.... Lemon Shark. Go get some. And if you hate it... hit me up man... If I have the funds I'll be after more...
Final Rating?


Want to try it?

Sorry guys no mini versions of the Sauce of the Month... I would make decants if I had enough to share but... I don't know when I'll see it again. 

Buy it here through December (the end of December unless I'm mistaken it's only up a tad early for BLACK FRIDAY! Be thankful that this time we have a whole month to decide and (hopefully,) stock up! instead of a single batch to fight for...

Now next time snail mail comes... I've missed it every time. I've got my claws out!
