I’ve been interested to try the Holistic Silk Cocoon Exfoliators for ages – I must admit that I didn’t have much faith that they’d work – but they do! Made from – obviously – silk cocoons (that have been steam sterilised) you pop one on the end of your finger, after dampening with water or even micellar, and massage around your face. Because they contain amino acid, Sericin (a water soluble glycoprotein), these little shells do actually leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.
I think it’s quite an expensive way to smooth and exfoliate at £25 a pack of Silk Cocoon Exfoliators but if you like experimenting, each cocoon can be used two to three times.
I wrote about silk pillow cases, while we’re on the subject of silk, years ago on this blog when it was presented to me as a way to soften the skin. I have since bought – and recommended – many silk pillow cases but more for hair than skin. So, while silk doesn’t add to face-creasing during the night (ever woken up with pillow creases? I once had a duvet with wooden buttons at the top which I indavertently slept on and that button imprint lasted two days!), the real miracle is for hair. Silk is so smooth it doesn’t rough up the hair shaft, so your post-blowdry smoothness will stay longer. I also recommend it for kids with very tangly hair that hate having their hair brushed, because it does help to keep the tangles away and reduces that awful pre-school stress.
Anyway, both these items are from Holistic Silk HERE and I cannot knock them for quality. The silk pillow case is £47.
