Scar Healing: Using Elicina Snail Cream to Remove Unsightly Scars - Product Review

Updated on November 6, 2011

Physical scars sometimes leave psychological wounds that haunt us for a long time. When I was in high school, the stress of academic life caused me to break out on my arm. Scars on our arms take longer to heal than those on our faces, and I was quite devastated as there was nothing I could do to hide them. When these zits finally went away, there was still discoloration from the scars. It didn’t help that I had scratched them to take away the itch, so some of these scars were larger and darker, as I had aggravated them.

I tried all the scar removal and vitamin E creams in the pharmacies, hoping to find a way to remove them. To hide them I wore a jacket all the time, even though I wasn’t feeling cold. It wasn’t cool at all. I couldn’t go out to do outdoor activities or to swim anymore, as these scars just took all my self esteem away, and I felt so self conscious. It didn’t help that I had been suffering from acne, where big pimples would emerge during those times of stress (which was practically all the time).

The Elicina Snail


Elicina Helps Individuals Who Suffer From

  • acne scars
  • keloids
  • age spots
  • sun spots
  • warts
  • wrinkles
  • stretch marks

Each day when I walked home, I would pop into all the stores to look at their new creams, to see if there was one that I’d be able to try. The first time I had scar problems, I used Mederma, which worked really work. This round I couldn't find Mederma, which made me rather disappointed. But soon after when I discovered the world of google and online shopping, I began to google for creams that would remove scars.

That was when I found Elicina. It was a very humble page, but it had fantastic testimonials. Elicina consists of 80% snail (the helix aspersa muller snail) extract that has strong healing properties. It is natural, hypoallergic, non-greasy and rapidly absorbed, which makes it easy to apply and use. It is recommended to be used together with a moisturizer, although Elicina does come in a form with moisturizers in it for those who like a shortcut. Many ladies apply their make up straight after they apply a thin coat of Elicina onto their faces.

Many people who are out of surgery use Elicina to help them to prevent scar formation, and the research shows that Elicina works beautifully. There are many testimonials on Elicina's webpage that document how they have benefited by Elicina. When I tried it, I saw a steady improvement in the appearance of my scars. Within a few days, they became lighter and smoother. My scar used to protrude above the skin, but now after some months, it is barely a bump on my arm. Over a few months, the other scar has shrunk in terms of diameter, and it does not look so angry anymore.

Some people report seeing very quick results - scars that disappear over a few weeks. But in my case, because my scar was well formed before using Elicina, I am grateful for the progress that has been made.

Some of the scar creams are too rich - when I apply them, a pimple forms at the site of the scar, and it makes the situation even worse. In the case of Elicina, this has never happened. It is so light, and after applying it, my skin feels really smooth. In fact, the website says that Elicina is perfect for individuals who have oily or mixed skin.

If you are looking for scar cream, do consider Elicina. I highly recommend it. As I am not residing in the US, I was really glad to find that there was one shop that sold Elicina locally, as I didn’t have a credit card that would enable me to make online purchases. There are many international stores selling Elicina, and you might want to check them out. But now that I am older and wiser, I realize that Amazon offers better prices than many other retail stores. It would definitely do you good to buy Elicina for the scars that need healing, or for someone who is suffering from a scar that is taking too long to go away.

      If it will remove my age spots (dark spots from the sun), I'm in! Let me know if it will help and if so, I will order from your amazon ad. Good hub and voted UP!

      Thanks for the recommendation. I've never heard of Eclinia before but from your review, it seems to work well.

      I've never heard this, but I'll have to give it a try. I have a pretty bad scar on my arm from a car wreck several years ago. I needed stitches, but after waiting in the emergency room for 5 hours, I decided to just doctor it myself. The result was a pretty wide and obvious scar. I just assumed I would have to deal live with it forever. But I'll definitely look into this. Thanks for sharing!
